The staff were all super nice & chill, the food was good(kettle chips were my fave!) but the real treat is the amazing view you get while eating here!!!! so very worth it, you must check it our when you're in Laguna! They only serve lunch until 2:30 after that it's just apps, so if you want a full meal... More

Spectacular ocean view from the Rooftop make this experience memorable. The food is very good. The service is good considering that ALL the food has to be carted up multiple flights of stairs. The servers certainly get a workout. There is a full bar on the roof top but the food is prepared downstairs, so prepare to wait a bit.... More

The view is fantastic, on a sunny day (like most around here) it's the best place to be and enjoy a cocktail.

We enjoyed the refreshing classic Mojitos after spending all day at the beach and the empanada appetizers were excellent. The heated lamps were a plus for the chilly California evening! I would definitely revisit here again

We loved the appetizer and lunch. Service was suspect since the waitress was still on break even when she was present. Drinks and foodie lunch were great. Burger, Ahi and Tuscan platter great for drinking and snacking. I had the shrimp club. I think i got 1 bite after everyone else devoured it. Love Laguna for its art and heart!

It has a great view and a lot of fun during Sunset. Food is OK at best and drinks are kinda weak. Service isn't all that great either. Go for the view if you can find a better one place with a view go for it.

The view is lovely and the appetizers and drinks are very enjoyable. However, the system for getting a table is not. My friend and I arrived there around 6pm on a Saturday evening a few weeks ago. We had called earlier that day to reserve a table and were told that it is first come first served. When we arrived,... More

Rooftop of our hotel. Very nice sunset views. Unfortunately no service in the evening when you would like to have a 'late night' drink.

Fun place to go for lite lunch or dinner. Good drinks, friendly service enjoyable food. Great view. Nice place to take out of town guests for a view of the Pacific. Perfect for a non weekend outing. Seating is first to grab a table gets it. This can be a little dicey so it pays to keep tabs on the... More

It was a girls trip to Laguna Beach for us Midwestern gals, and we decided to go to the Rooftop Lounge for Breakfast. Late September, the morning was absolutely stunning. We could not have asked for a better morning. I think we all just sat at the table in silence for almost an hour, as we looked out at the... More
