We were seated within a few minutes of our arrival. My husband ordered crab benedict and I ordered the breakfast platter. The food came out within a reasonable time, My plate had 2 eggs, a little varied fruit cup, an awesome scone with a blend of cranberry & orange marmalade. It was delicious. I also got 2 sausages but didnt... More

Even though there are an abundance of Fabulous Restaurants in Laguna Beach, WATERMARC is still Near and Dear to my Heart! My Hubby and I have been coming here since they opened in 2009! We are huge fans of Chef Marc Cohen and love his other restaurants, 230 Forest Avenue and OPAH! But, it's WATERMARC, that has some of my... More

I knew the prices were going to be steep, but was foolish enough not to ask the prices on the daily specials. My steak was $52, but even if it was less expensive, I wouldn't order it again. Loved the goat cheese on the grazing menu. The seafood paella was good but the salad was average. We had a service... More

We happened upon this amazing little spot in Laguna Beach and were so happy we did. The drinks were absolutely amazing and the atmosphere was magical. The best part about it was the conversation with random strangers! We met interesting people in a short time!

We have been going here for many years, since it opened. The food can be amazing and the prices do reflect this. This time we went on a Saturday about 3:30pm. Our server was very odd. He looked odd and talked very fast. The order was as we told him but he was just odd. The people who came in... More

Fish tacos, lamb salad and the hamburgers are great. Wonderful and unusual starters. Nice wine selection. Warm and friendly. I try to eat here at least twice a month.

Good food, I ordered a steak medium rare and was greatly pleased with precision and cooking. The table next to my partner and I however received an overcooked pork chop. Management was overwhelmingly helpful and delivered the meal later with a comped dessert. Great service even when busy and great food :)

Enjoyed a fabulous dinner there on a Saturday night - did not have a reservation and the host was able to accommodate us due to a cancellation. Our waiter was a professional. In every sense of the word. Never interrupting, very knowledgable in his profession. Was quick to suggest favourites on the menu. The food was superb. The presentation was... More

Went here for dinner when I visited my parents for the weekend. Excellent service and food. Very generous proportions. The seafood paella was superb. All of their appetizers are amazing as well. Highly recommend coming for dinner and trying the paellas, they are not available on the lunch menu.
