Had breakfast here while in Laguna Beach last week. While the waffles with marscapone, lemon crime and blueberries looked delicious, I settled on scrambled eggs which came with a basil scone and tator tots. It was the perfect choice. Would definitely recommend the Watermarc!

We have a very nice meal at the Watermarc. The menu offers "grazing plates" in addition to traditional entrees. Grazing plate are unique - not quite appetizers - almost mini entrees. Two would make a meal, or you can mix and match entrees. We had Burrata Mozzarella, Filet Mignon Pot Pie, Seafood Paella and the special Swordfish. All was delicious... More

Food - Our food was great. I had the best pork chops I have ever eaten and the portion sizes were generous. Price - This is somewhat of an expensive restaurant. We walked out for about $50 per person and didn't buy any alcohol. Location - Their location is unmatched. It is right in the heart of Laguna's shopping and... More

Watermarc is a nice local dinner spot in the funky Laguna Beach downtown area. The drinks are inventive (careful of the aptly-named Hotlips) and the preparation of the fish dishes was perfect.

Excellent dinner, I have nothing negative to say. We decided on tapas style dinner and were not dissapointed. The dishes were expertly prepared and well presented. Service was fast. Ask to be sitted upstairs.

We had excellent service from Brandon. Drinks were just okay no craft cocktails here and the ones we got were possibly missing alcohol. Drinks are pricey so you want at least a little kick. Food was excellent: mussels were yummy and the chicken paella was awesome Lamb salad was very good. Lastly, the warm bread pudding dessert was outstanding.

Didn't really need the reservation for Watermarc on PCH in the heart of Laguna Beach on aThursday night at 6 p.m...but by 7 it was pretty full except for the communal table. We chose from the grazing menu and each item was beautifully presented and really tasty. We both loved the burrata flat bread--just wished for more than 4 tiny... More
