Took family and out of town guests on Saturday. Matt was the waiter. He was a delight. Just the right amount of amiable chatter, attention to detail and respect. Super attentive but not obtrusive - a delicate balance. Food was delicious but service was absolutely standout. Suggest requesting a seat upstairs as it is as if a tree is growing through the dining room. Totally protected and not at all cold but a feeling of outdoors - downstairs fine but upstairs is better atmosphere.

We had dinner here and had been recommended by a charming waiter at the sister restaurant watermark. We were a little late to dine by American standards (9.30ish?) but got off to a shaky start when we were ignored as we stood in front of the front desk. None the less we were seated and fed promptly. Very good food as I had come to expect after the pleasure of eating at watermark. I doubt you could find a bad meal here but on balance I would stick with watermark if I had to choose between the two as this is bigger, less intimate and we didn't get any idea that they were pleased to see us unlike the people at watermark.

We had brunch as it is virtually impossible to find breakfast served on a week day here. Beautiful food with everything cleverly presented. Attractive modern surroundings and excellent service. Personally I feel that there was a little too much of a 'twist' in each of the plates and the service was almost too pleasant and bordered on the obsequious but that is preferable to the can't be bothered attitude we found at the sister restaurant Landmarc. All in all an really good place for an occasion as they do go the extra mile with presentation.

My wife and I celebrated her birthday at Watermarc and it was a big success! The Saturday night reservation was held on time and our request to be seated on the second floor balcony was immediately granted. Keith, our server was attentive and helpful. The Ahi & watermelon Skewer were fantastic, the Chilean Sea bass was perfect and the Short Ribs were outstanding. We highly recommend this place as one of the top five restaurants in Laguna Beach!

The service was great, the food was awesome. Loved the patio dining in the courtyard as well, but got a bit busy because of the Gelato place. The decor, friendliness of staff and location were excellent. The food presentation was spectacular. We had Ahi watemelon skewers, tomato burrata starters, and paella, braised short ribs, and scallops for mains. Everything was seasoned really well and so tasty. We will be coming back soon.
