We had a lovely meal here. The food was soo good and the atmosphere was really nice and relaxing. The waiter helped us through the menu and was very helpful. One of the best meals we've had in laguna and would def go back!!!

We had reservations at Nick's (next door to Watermarc) with family members. Unfortunately, they were very late and we lost our reservation. Nick's (which is also excellent, by the way) offered to hold our reservation but we declined as we weren't quite sure when they would show up. When they arrived, we opted to go next door and try Watermarc.... More

Wonderful, informed server, excellent food and drinks. We would go back. The only negative was the restroom. It wasn't very clean or in very good repair.

We had reservations here (had lunch here before and dinner at the bar prior ). They sat us at a table where the bench in back was shared across a wall. There was about 12 inches between our table and the next. Very uncomfortable and such a shame when the food is good. The waiter served our appetizers and then... More

My husband and I had brunch at the Watermarc. It was very good. I loved the open air breezes from the ocean, our sever was wonderful balancing his time but not being over bearing. Lovely service, nice place, food was great. Five dollar Blood Mary's were very good. Highly recommend for brunch or anytime.

We were able to request that we be provided a table near the front, which provide much more airiness. The appetizers were exceptional and our main courses (all of us had fish) were very good. moist and not dried out. Wine selections by the glass were high quality.

We stumbled across this place a while back due to the $5 bloody mary weekend! So glad we did. Anthony is always amazing and Matt...what can I say about Matt. He is always the EPITOME of excellent service and I work in the industry on the Las Vegas Strip! Amazing food (PCH Omelette or crab Benedict anyone?). World class bloody... More

Having never been to Laguna Beach we didn't research places to eat and just took a chance on finding a good place to have lunch. Looking for a place that was open to the outside and looked inviting with a good menu we walked into Watermarc. We were lucky to have the 2 seater against the open windows overlooking the... More

My wife and I dined here before going to the Pageant. We reserved on Open Table, drove by at lunch time and it was packed, filled back up at 6pm so reserve on weekends and peak times. We ate burgers which were not typical, burrata and crab cake, both were great and 1/2 off was better. Oysters were excellent, they... More

We ate at this restaurant Friday, Aug 8. Our reservation for 2 was for 6:45 and we were seated immediately. We ate next to the window looking to the street (there is no outdoor seating - at least in the front). The restaurant is noisy so we were fortunate that the window was to one side of our table -...
