Amazing food, amazing view!

We found this place through Trip Advisor and absolutely loved it. You have to go through the hotel lobby and upstairs to get to the lounge but it's not too hard to find. I believe they close between lunch and dinner so double check on that before you go. The food was great, I got a salad and my... read more

If you're in the mood to sit outside on a rooftop and gaze over other buildings toward the blue Pacific, all while in a casual kick-back atmosphere, this may be your spot. The menu is limited, but the bar scene looked lively. The tables seem to be first come, first grab, with little organization or direction from the staff.

The restaurant was recommended to me by a friend who lived in Laguna. My girlfriend and I were there for a romantic getaway, so The Rooftop Lounge definitely hit the spot. The view was out of this world, we could see nothing but ocean in front of us. The food was delicious too, but the restaurant had some challenges that... More

My son came down to Laguna to take me out for a lunch. We thought it would be nice to try a new place. All tables where taken and weiter said its a "first come first served rule" How one will distinguish who is first? People were waiting in line at the entrance and also at the back where it... More

I went here a few weeks ago with a friend. It was busy, but I thought the food was average bar food, and the view was not very impressive. The second time I have been here, and my friend really likes it, but I was not impressed... 1st time was in summer, so it wasn't the weather.

We stopped at The Rooftop Lounge on our way through Laguna Beach on a very cold December day, but we figured the view would be worth braving the 40-degree weather. The food and menu is nothing to get excited over... I had a cup of tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich for $11, and while the tomato soup was... More

Best place in Laguna to catch a sunset. The bacon wrapped dates are absolutely delicious. Expensive drinks but so strong! Very busy place, so go early to find a table.
