We were very eager to try Broadway. We made sure to save room for what we thought would be a meal to remember. When the menus arrived, we were at a loss for what to order ~ very strange items that just didn't sound appetizing. We've eaten everything - crocodile, turtle, sea cucumbers, sea urchins, fried crickets, ostrich, antelope, warthog,... More

The food was excellent, as was the service. The atmosphere is lively. Overall, the four of us enjoyed our meal. I would dine there again.

We were anticipating good food at this busy central Laguna Beach restaurant and our first plates did not disappoint. But it was downhill from there. Our entree was delayed, which can happen at the best of places. But the noise level steadily increased from our 6:30 reservation onwards. The walls are concrete, and it's a hardwood or other uncarpeted floor.... More

We visited this restaurant on a Monday, when they have a prix fixe menu for $39, a good deal. I had the prix fixe and my husband chose from the regular menu. We both had lamb. I think my entree was smaller than his but not too small to complain. Everything was very tasty, especially the appetizers. It is hard... More

We had been meaning to try Broadway by Amar Santana for a while and finally made it. We went on a Saturday and it was buzzing. Interestingly, many of the tables were not seemingly having full meals. We, on the other hand, did. A couple of the dishes were very good -- the branzino in particular. I also liked the... More

We are a New York City based couple and with much anticipation, we entered Broadway Restaurant to ring in the New Year with friends and good food- the restaurant was down right awful - lets hope its not an indication of the year to come! The food was either overcooked or cold. Moreover, the dishes were unimaginative and some were... More

I revisited Broadway by Amar Santana a few evenings ago and found it to be very good indeed, again, I am happy to report. The service was a tad slow on the uptake but once we got our menus and wine list and our order in everything was great. The food is very, very good and has a great combination... More

I loved the atmosphere and the food. If you want a great high class meal, this place is it. They have the best calamari. It is not fried but very delicious.

Broadway in Laguna Beach is by far one of my favorite restaurants so far. Too bad I live in Los Angeles, otherwise I would be there for dinner everyday! Good friends of mine who live in Laguna Beach took me to this restaurant, I thought it would be like any other restaurant in Laguna Beach, but as soon as my... More
