Headed to Maro's for a spur of the moment dinner with fiends. Enjoyed the wood-grilled edamame, organic green salad, and wood grilled salmon. Small place, intimate, not elegant surrounds, but elegant fare.

Maro Wood Grill – I rated this restaurant a two (poor) for its mediocre food and horrible value; the food at the price charged (value) are my key evaluative criteria in these reviews. Give the existing TA ratings, I had much higher expectations and was extremely disappointed with our lunch. Three in our party ordered the Argentinean Steak Sandwich on... More

Excellent across the board. Service, quality of ingredients, organic ... all fantastic. We had the salmon and ribeye. I recommend sitting at the bar to observe how a great kitchen works.

I stopped at Maro's for lunch this afternoon, and left unimpressed. Yes, there were parts of the meal that I enjoyed: the wedge salad & grilled green beans were good, but the rib eye, at $36, was expensive for a relatively thin cut of meat that was largely devoid of flavor. The chimchurri sauce which accompanied the steak was good,... More

I say steak patio, because Maro is VERY SMALL, with only a few tables inside, and a small number more in the newly-expanded covered patio. It amazes me that Maro is doing as well as it is, given its size limitations, but the food there is REALLY GOOD! The empanadas, as starters, are delicious, as are the mesquite-grilled edamame. The...

Quiet and cozy restuarant toward the south end of Laguna, quaint outdoor patio with a smaller but very good menu. The food was delicious and service was superb.
