Nice for locals and out of towners

Heirloom Baby Beet Salad utilizes wonderful selection of locally sourced food. We often indulge in Roasted Beef Bone marrow. Both Sea Scallops and Thyme Basted Scottish Salmon are two nice dishes to share. If we have room we will dive into the coconut lime semifreddo or Chocolate Praline Cruch.

More often than not, Broadway is packed, yet we've always been able to sit down for a unique dinner. If we're really lucky we can watch the chef cook at the tiny bar space in front of them. One waitress in particular offers the most refined, non-obtrusive and knowledgeable service, that we always hope she'll be serving the night we're... More

The best meal we had during 5 days in Newport Beach/Laguna. The 3 course prix fixed dinner was delicious from very complex flavors in the octopus and risotto appetizers to the smokey crusted Kobe Flat Iron steak and finishing with a tasty Key Lime tart dotted with raspberries. The service was excellent although they were a little too anxious to... More

How much did my husband and I love this restaurant??? Let me count the ways… 1. Gorgeous, chic space 2. Incredible open kitchen which provided dinner AND a show! 3. The most delightful, charming, knowledgable and excellent server 4. Nicest, most attentive staff 5. Old classic black and white movie playing on a screen (Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman…Perfection!) 6.... More

Broadway is a good spot for a dinner while in Laguna Beach. The service was good and while the food was for the most part tasty there were a couple of misses in our meal. Service was good and our waiter did a good job of making us feel welcome and appreciated. The biggest drawback to the place is poor... More

We really enjoyed everything we tried. Drinks were great. Bronzino was cooked to perfection as were the scallops.

Our daughter gave my wife and I a gift card to Broadway knowing how much we enjoy eating out. So we invited her along and the three of us went this past Tuesday; each of us agreed "this is a winner"! After three wonderful appetizers...cod fritters, garlic shrimp and Brussel sprouts, my wife and daughter enjoyed a seafood paella, while... More

As a New Yorker Traveling through South Of California, eating in many (highly rated) restaurants, we discovered a gem! Broadway in Laguna Beach - a trendy decorated restaurant, nice ambiance, mellow atmosphere. The 4 of us sat at the counter (chef's table) and decided on the tasters menu. Although I usually do not like to sit by the counter, I... More
