We dined at the Studio during a recent visit to Laguna Beach. I wish I would have taken the time to read some of the reviews first. On the plus side, the service and the location is excellent, but the overall dining experience was absolutely not worth price that the restaurant charges. The price/value relationship is absurd. Our starting courses were nothing extraordinary and actually somewhat disappointing. The rabbit roulades were almost tasteless. Our main courses were on par with a good restaurant, but again, nothing that made you feel that it was something outstanding. The sommelier made excellent wine recommendations but we both felt the food was a big let down and not worthy of the hype nor the price. I was reminded of the old fable, "The Emperor's New Clothes". We left feeling a bit naked.
