We visited on a Saturday at noon. It was before the lunch rush so it wasn't super busy. We just stopped for some champagne and the ocean views. They seated us and then the host came and told us twice that we shouldn't be seated at the tables if we weren't going to order food. Maybe he should have asked if we were there for lunch or drinks. We also would have been quicker if it didn't take 20 minutes for the waiter to come to our table. Overall, not a great experience.

Perched on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Laguna Beach, the view from The Cliff cannot be beat. The food was excellent as was the service. The pepper crusted ahi appetizer was excellent.

I come here for the view. Sitting out side can be cold; dress accordingly. The service is a bit slow. Food is average. Parking is very difficult even with Valet only.

We were looking for a fun spot to enjoy brunch in Laguna and this was just the spot. The view was excellent, drinks were top notch, and the food and staff were great as well.
