Friends who live in Laguna Beach recommended this restaurant for my birthday dinner. Although the food was good (especially the owner-grown figs stuffed with goat cheese & wrapped in proscuitto) service and attention to detail were seriously lacking. We waited about 15 min. to get a drink (seems we were outside on the 2nd floor rooftop and the bar was... More

Here's a restaurant firing on ALL cylinders. Impeccable service from the entire wait staff. Inventive menu including a whole separate menu for Vegans. I liv 50 miles away and would make the trip here again in a heartbeat.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal here the last week of June when they were running their 50% off specials. We had been before several times and this was another wonderful experience.

The restaurant itself is nothing to write home about; the food was organic, hormone free etc. For the season, the space was surprisingly quiet for the middle of the season on a Saturday evening?

We ate there recently after not having been for a couple of years. I am happy to report it was just as good as I remember it. The salmon was perfectly prepared, the upstairs patio was delightful and they had a good wine selection. I plan to go next month on our next trip. Lastly, they take reservations which is... More

Was very loud. As a matter of fact it seems like the volume got higher as the night got longer and patrons were finishing up. The lentils were to die for. Food as a general rule was very good. Wait staff was friendly. Timing wasn't great. Some delays between the first course and second course and then the third course... More

Happy hour and bar food were perfect. When you're not up for "dinner" this is the place to go to. You won't be disappointed.

We want back to the place of our first date 9 years ago, and a new restaurant was in place! Still upscale, and the food was outstanding... we enjoyed our meal, and the service was appropriate. It may be another 9 years before we go back again simply due to distance, but we'll leave it on the lsit!

We have a Vegan teenage in our clan and often have a hard time finding restaurants we all will enjoy that offer her a vegan option. Nirvana Grill is perfect. They have a traditional menu with all local and organic food but also offer a pure Vegan separate menu which made us all happy! Great tasting food and creative cuisine... More

I love the vibe of this restaurant -- cool greys, stark white accents, quiet booths, simple but nice bar. They have an awesome daily happy hour at the bar that I recommended to everyone I knew. Try the Roasted Poblano Pepper...stuffed with sauteed artichokes, mushrooms, cheese and more, and served with a wedge of garlic cheese bread, this is nearly... More
