I have driven by this place for over 30 years and always wanted to stop but never did because I had heard it was always packed with locals and hard to get in but found out they take reservations so finally went. Great experience. The place is cozy but they do well with the space. The food was very good, perhaps a little pricy but they did have some specials which we tried. I had the Beef Stroganoff which was excellent. Others in the party had steak, scallops, and shrimp. All enjoyed their meal. Good wine list and reasonable prices by the glass. Service was good. Really, no complaints. Would definitely go back again. Too bad I waited so long to come to this Laguna gem.

This is an old school, kitcshy place. The food was great, the location was good for us and we liked the vibe. It did seem to be "owned" by the regulars who think of it as their home, but we made a space there for us and had a great time. I wish we would have discovered it sooner and saved some time eating at overpriced cali food in downtown Laguna Beach.

We ate here Saturday, Feb 1 with friends. The food was delicious and the service friendly (thank you Traci!) - our dinner was very, very enjoyable. Our reservation was at 5:30 and we were seated immediately. Vermouth shots and a fantastic paté is served while you look over the menu which changes, we were told, nightly. The menu pages are in plastic sleeves and each dinner is given 3-4 different pages which you then pass around the table. I had the 4 oz filet from the small plates menu ($19.95) and my friend had the regular filet ($39.95). The spinach salad and onion soup were each $4.95. The Chimay beer was $7 and a glass of Pinot Noir was $9. We had after dinner coffees and a liqueur (each was $9). Our evening was really enjoyable and the food was outstanding. This is not a fancy dress-to-the-nines restaurant but is special for an evening out. We'll be back!
Only caution is to leave in enough time to park. The restaurant does not have dedicated parking. We parked at a parking meter (pay parking until 7 pm) and had enough quarters for our time. The parking meter also took credit cards! It is difficult to find free parking in Laguna Beach and you need to be careful you don't park on private property.

It had been at least a year since we were there. Like always, choice are difficult since their menu is so diversified and interesting. With the exception of a very weak soup, everything was excellent. My salad and Cioppino were both outstanding and my wife's veal Marsala was very tasty and well presented. They had some holiday wine specials and we had nice Mendoza Malbec at a reasonable price as well.

Have been a customer here for over 20 years. As always we had a great dinner. This place is not
glitzy but serves great food. Menu items and wine list are priced fairly. We will return again.
