we go there every 6 months to a year. excellent meat, empanadas and grilled veggies. unfortunately due to the small size of the resturaunt, everyone pays a large chunk of rent. it took us a visit to a popular great Argentinian Resturaunt to compare and really see the diff.

We ate here last week for the first time. We had the baseball steak and skirt steak. Everything was delicious. Try the banana pudding and hot cocoa if you leave room for dessert. We enjoyed the outdoor seating and will be back. Friendly staff and unique kitchen!

I highly recommend this restaurant I particularly enjoyed the chimichuri sauce. The Best! And the lamb was great also.

Ridiculously overpriced! We order an artichoke, a burger, 2 empanadas and 2 glasses of wine. All this for over $100.00. House wine was extremely pricey, food was average. Ambience ~ nothing special. We love Argentinian food... This is not worth it.

We walked from our hotel to Maro Wood Grill which was recommended to us from the hotel. It's very cozy with outside seating under a tent, with heaters which made it very comfortable. We had their burger which was out of sight as far as the flavor. Came with coleslaw, which was the best - all their food is made... More

I first learned about Maro from the appetizers they served at the Green Feast fundraiser for The Ecology Center in San Juan Capistrano. Giving back to the community pays because that motivated me to have lunch at their restaurant in Laguna Beach recently. It was a rainy day and the umbrellas on the patio need to be adjusted to make... More

Chose this place based on Yelp stars - mistake #1. Entrees are so unimaginative so we opted for salads with protein. Basically field greens plus fennel (big whoop) in such a lousy vinegarette we has to ask for extra balsamic. The empanadas people rave about were nice but got progressively smaller (why? See photo - not an optical illusion). Wait... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel concierge - we found it mediocre. Poor service - I was still eating my main course when the waiter (the guy with the small pony-tail!) asked if we wanted desert! When we asked what was available he said there was only 1 desert left. We then declined and the waiter immediately produced the... More

Sitting on the patio on a warm summers evening is usually enough to make me happy.... But add the amazing food at Maro Wood Grill and the great service and you just can't go wrong. Guests at neighboring tables talking with each other added to a very sociable evening. The place is small so don't expect to get seated without... More

This small, quaint Laguna Beach restaurant on PCH is delightful, quieter evening with friends. They offer a wonderful wine selection. Both times we've been there, the owner, a young handsome guy and the chef, a pretty, charming "California-Girl type" have greeted us. The service is excellent and the waiters are clearly well trained and knowledgable. We enjoyed it so much,... More
