“Best food we had in Laguna Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014 via mobile

We were looking at the Yelp and Trip Advisor reviews and unfortunately didn't visit Watermarc until our third evening in town. We shared the grazing plates and all were delicious...so good we are planning on going back tomorrow before we head out of town. Had the lambchops which were breaded just right and well seasoned. The goat cheese was sweet and savory, the bacon wrapped figs were delicious, and the filet pot pie, while not our favorite thing on Watermarc's menu, was still better than the food we'd had elsewhere. Service was great even though we arrived at about 9pm, and the waiter made helpful suggestions. Not sure how this isn't the number one ranked restaurant, but I hope it will be by the time others read this.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

The food here is very tasty, the service was attentive, and the location is nice. No view, and had a problem with multiple smokers standing right outside the open windows.

“Good food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

As we were just off a long flight, we elected to share one of their grazing plates for a starter and one main course between us. It was more that enough for the two of us! Both were, however, very good; the flatbread was delicious and the pork was well cooked and flavoursome whilst it's accompanying vegetables complemented it well.

“Fact that they weren't busy should've been our first clue.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

Horribly average. Well below average for the restaurants around it. Service was slow. Tater tots, ore ida; fresh-squeezed orange juice?! Maybe in Florida...omelette, some thin eggs with stuff thrown inside. Please don't waste your precious time, go down the street to nicks!!

“Wow....”

Start at the top of the menu, and work your way down. You'll not be disappointed! The "pot pie" is off the charts.
