First time we were invited by our friends and we loved it so we have become regular customers. The food is excellent and the service is superb. Anytime we like to really have a fine dinning experience and also enjoy the atmosphere we come here. our favorite table is upstairs on the balcony, you feel like you are in Europe... More

Our wine night in Laguna we decided to go to Watermarc and we are so glad we did! Ahi skewers were awesome.. Foie gras is happily back on the menu and the perfectly share spice was served on top of vichyssoise. Delicious! Burgers are the deal during happy hour. We completely enjoyed the burger with Duck Confit. Really good on... More

I went down with my wife, my brother and his wife. We had spent the day doing a Murder Mystery Scavenger Hunt (different review). We arrived a little before our reservation and sat at the bar. Devin was the bartender – very down to earth, knowledgeable and friendly. I love bartenders that you can tell what types of spirits or... More

We had an excellent lunch last week at Mark Cohen's latest addition in the local area. The lamb chop appetizers were excellent was well as everything we all tried.

If you are craving an incredible, meaty burger you can't beat Watermarc's 1/2-price Happy Hour burgers. They are served every day except holidays from 4-6 pm. I went with my 17 and 22 year olds and everyone was extremely satisfied with the quality and the fantastic service. The atmosphere is cozy and intimate and if you're in the right spot,... More

The Watermarc restaurant has made it's "mark". The sophisticated, diverse menu, delightful service and trendy ambience puts it at the top of my list in Laguna. Have missed the former Partners restaurant, but this replacement in the heart of the town is even better. Shall return!

We came here for Saturday lunch and drinks. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was outstanding! We shared a few appetizers. In particular, we loved the bacon wrapped dates and the flatbread. The cocktail menu was fun and interesting as well. I would definitely go back, next time in the area.

We dined at this remarkably great restaurant! Honestly, we did not expect this level of high-end and creative dining in Laguna Beach, but Watermarc surprised us! And the sister - restaurant 230 was equally great! If you're in Laguna and enjoy really great food and wines- go there and enjoy!!
