If so, This place would deserve it. Outstanding. Hotel (Monarch Beach) recommended this spot and it turned out to be a true gem. Note: The artichoke was a gift from the kitchen.

When you find two left forks next to your plate, you know your dining experience is going to be a step above the "one-fork" experience! Enjoy the bustling ambience of Two Left Forks, Dana Point's go-to neighborhood restaurant destination that welcomes you with familiar warmth and new culinary discoveries six nights a week. Chef Rob Hines' modernized take on sophisticated dishes melds beautifully with crafty cocktails and Orange County's already-popular Most Wanted List of rare wines by the glass. From our "Bites" menu that begins with Hazelnut Crusted Goat Cheese Croquettes, to the very last entrée on our menu, our best-selling Pistachio-Crusted Colorado Rack of Lamb, everyone at the table will assuredly discover their own perfect dining experience! See our Dining Menu. We offer comfortable and expansive seating in our lounge and dining room, with an open-air Sunset Terrace (complete with stone fireplace) and private party and meeting room, "The TLF Glass House." Located just above Doheny Beach in Dana Point, Two Left Forks sits "on the fork" of Pacific Coast Highway and Del Prado between Copper Lantern and Golden Lantern streets, with plenty of parking in its own lot, and valet service on the weekends.
