A former car dealership was coverted into a sleek casual dining restaurant with white tablecloths and a very diverse menu. Steaks, chops, seafood, salads, pasta, sandwiches...you name it, they've got it. Reasonable prices, good sized portions and outside dining make this a must visit.

Had a pleasant lunch with colleagues and enjoyed the lunch specials. The food was great and reasonably priced. Not too noisy to conduct a good conversation.

The grill on laurel is very average for a high end location. Service is good, food is good, wine is good but nothing, absolutely nothing stands out. It is a place to go when you are out of options but still want a nice meal. My tip is to go with friends so you are less likely to be critical.

Indoor/outdoor seating on the north end of downtown Lake Forest - this reasonably priced casual restaurant is the perfect place for lunch. A wide variety of menu choices from the daily special for around $7 upwards to fish and steak. I love the coconut shrimp served on spinach with pine nuts and other goodies and drizzled with a wonderful house vinigrette. Nice place for clients, dates and families alike.

I was there on business and had a nice lunch outdoors. We both just got salads that were very good. Our service was fine.
