My Birthday weekend Feb 2016

Amazing view, great service, interesting menu and $6.00 mimosas. Out of the way, hidden gem of a restaurant with great ambiance.

Made it to the restaurant about 12:45pm on a Tuesday. No wait for view table. Dined on the Poke, seafood soup and veggie burger. All was delicious, great staff a little slow on food prep. Would definitely go again.

I have visited The Rooftop Lounge a couple times over the last few years to experience the view and atmosphere. I've had great service and great food there but with the view, I can't say that matters much.

I've been here a couple of times and it was disappointing each time, sadly. The service is really slow and it's expensive. I have to say that the scene is boring as well. Skip it and go somewhere better!

Great place to get a drink after a long day at the beach. Beautiful sunsets seen here just about 350 days a year. Parking is hard to find in the Summer months, but the view is worth it.

Stumbled upon the Rooftop Lounge 3 years ago while looking for drinks and appetizers on a trip. If you don't know it's there, kind of difficult to locate. The view is spectacular! Fun location to have a drink under an umbrella with a panoramic ocean view. The mojitos are awesome and you can't pass up the bacon wrapped, bleu cheese... More

Stopped by before a group event in downtown to have a couple of drinks and enjoy the afternoon sunshine. We had some mojito's and the coconut shrimp appetizer. Great conversation with other out of town visitors and some friendly locals. Will definitely come back next time we're in town to have a full meal and spend more time at the... More

Been to the roof top several times as i live in Laguna Beach. Best time to go is 3 to 5 for happy hour. Drinks are half price. I don't order food because we go downstairs for their high quality food.

We had a lovely kick off to our night at this beautiful spot. The view of the ocean is amazing and on a clear day you can see Catalina Island. We hit the happy hour which offered discounted beer, wine and well alcohol. The evening was breezy and cool however the staff was offering every patron blankets to keep warm... More
