Loved the scallops and pea risotto. We had our Ebell Philanthropy's Board meeting dinner here and, even though there were 11 of us at the table, they still managed to give us great service and good food. We were here last year as a group and will come again as individuals as well as a group.

We ate lunch here and it was such a welcome relief from our previous meals in Laguna. Service could not have been better, the food was fabulous, the outdoor seating lovely.

My wife and I celebrated our first Anniversary here yesterday and had an amazing dinner. I would consider it a great value and worth every penny. The prices are very reasonable my wife had sea bass and was a beautiful presentation and the tomato soup is worth the trip all by itself. The 15.00 corkage fee is reasonable but no... More

My husband and I ended up at Watermarc after our first choice restaurant had stopped serving breakfast late on a Sunday morning. The Watermarc's outdoor sign for $5 Bloody Mary's was enough to get us in the door-- and they were exceptional (dilly beans, three different types of stuffed olives,, lime and a salted rim.... Awesome!) our server Kevin was... More

We asked for a nice table because it was our 25th anniversary and they seated us by the window up front. Best table in the house. I was very impressed. Drinks and food were outstanding. The herb-crusted lamb chops were amazingly good. A little on the pricey side for what you get, but the service and atmosphere was above reproach.

We chose this restaurant because of Tripavisor ratings and are glad we did. The grazing items are a unique concept and the food choices are excellent. Started with the tomato soup which came with a small grilled cheese sandwich...excellent and the corn chowder which had popcorn instead of crackers. It was a nice combination. I also had the filet pot... More

We had a memorable mother-daughter sojourn in the area and as we were going to the Pageant of the Masters, my daughter suggested we have an early dinner at Watermarc as she'd eaten there in the past. We parked across from the theater and it was a 15 minute or so walk to the restaurant. There is downstairs as well... More

Another successful restaurant from owners of 230 Forest Ave. Terrific small plate options including bacon wrapped dates, fig/spinach flat bread, fried goat cheese with apples & honey, seared yellowtail with pineapple. Many attractive menu options, we had rack of lamb, paella, halibut with pasta, beet salad. Wine list is pedestrian but had an appealing rose by the glass. Cocktails were... More

Since June 2013 I returned here again to celebrate July 4th, 2014 Independence Day. The marine layer, June gloom was not present this Independence Day weekend. The sun appeared the past 2 days. As I mentioned below I love both 230 Forest, Watermarc and Nicks. My family of 4 just returned here for dinner again. We ate downstairs overlooking the... More
