We went with a group of 36, reservation was made WEEKS in advance. We had one server, yes you read that correctly ONE server and she also had an afditional table of 6 that we became aware of. There was also ONE bartender, we felt so sorry for our server,,,, food was not that great,,,, stay away from the curry seared tuna terrible. Would never recommend, Ladies room has no TP only empty rolls, totsl lack of service...

As local Lagunatics, "Big Fish" is our "go to" restaurant at least 2 times a week. Great food, beer and wine at reasonable prices. I especially love Caesar salad and salmon carpaccio. My husband loves the gumbo ... Oh and I can't forget the bacon- wrapped scallops with mushroom risotto!

A fantastic restaurant overlooking the town. Not only were the views amazing, but so was the food. I highly recommend the Lobster Mac & Cheese. It's also a great place to go for drinks. The White Sangria is a must.

I was pleasantly surprised to find this location in Laguna Beach that offered a great view without costing a fortune. We had the best seat in the house to enjoy the sunset over the ocean view (arriving at 4:30 for dinner probably helped secure this great table). The food was delicious. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. She warned us that their portions were smaller than "usual". We did not find that to be a problem (except that I did have to order fries separately with my lobster roll as it did not come with any chips or fries). We definitely enjoyed the view, the atmosphere and the food. We'll be heading back again some time. Oh and yes, there is a parking lot adjacent to their building in the back so it makes parking very convenient.
