Description: The cuisine at Sapphire Laguna is characterized by Chef/Owner Azmin Ghahreman's distinctive international style, its cornerstone is the freshest possible local ingredients. The evolving menu changes seasonally - based on what is freshly caught and available from small farms, nearby markets and artisan suppliers. Chef Azmin's says: "When you dine at my restaurant you are traveling through the world's markets with your palate, and you don't even need a passport." Sapphire Laguna also features reach-in wine vaults which house an eclectic wine collection - more than 900 bottles, emphasizing varietals from around the world. All vintages are stored in temperature-controlled units behind a rustic wall made from actual wine staves. In addition, approximately 25 wines by the glass are available. Menu samples and wine offerings can be found on Sapphire Laguna's Website.

We ate outside by a open fire one evening. It was very romantic.The food was original and very good. We had great service and even better Atmosphere. Pacific Coast Highway can be noisy right in front outside but, we didnt notice the traffic at all. We would say go on a week night and live it up with good weather eat outside by the fire.

Nice location near main beach. Food and service was great. Sophisticated menu without the snobby vibe. Good restaurant to eat and then walk around and shop. Great outdoor patio as well.

Nice atmosphere with wooden tables surrounding a fire pit. We were there at night, but nearby there is shopping area with a great local book store and clothing boutiques.
Be sure to get the homemade potato chips (fried with rosemary) as an appetizer - every dish at our table was excellent.

We ate at Sapphire three times as it offered the most finesse in coking we found in Laguna Beach. Much of the menu was familiar, but the execution showed greater delicacy in the cooking and seasoning of our dishes. The service was fast and charming, the seats comfy. Even in a cold snap, (for SoCal) eating outside was fine as there are noth heaters and a ling fine.

Food was excellent, service was also excellent. We had rib eyes with truffle fries and they were really good. Waiter was Freddie and he was very engaging. Ask him about his remix music, he has a nice story.
