Excellent food and service. We went for happy hour. The view is to die for. Food matches the view. No complaints will go again. Try cocktails.

We were in the area with friends and decided to visit an old favorite for dinner after not having been here for years. We started with the salad bar which was good. Nice selection and fresh. But when our server brought the entrées all four of us were treated to a mound of mashed potatoes that were hard, dry and... More

The food was good but the view was better. I was on a trip with a large group and was pleased to see how well they handled such a large crowd. I ordered stuffed shrimp which was delicious and others who had salmon said theirs was also very good. I would definitely try it on my own.

Don't get me wrong, the food is very good, though not up to the level one would expect for the prices and the atmosphere. Our group had both surf and turf dishes, and they were all good enough. The service was excellent, though we were there early on a night and they weren't very busy. Stunning views of the coast... More

We had dinner here last night with another couple, before attending The Pageant of the Masters in Laguna Beach. By getting there early (5:45) we had our pick of ocean view booths along the windows. On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the highest, the view gets a 10+, the service a 9 and the food a solid 7.... More
