We had high expectations for this restaurant, but will probably never return. Four girlfriends wanting a nice lunch to end our Laguna weekend. We were excited to get seated right away. Wonderful view overlooking the ocean and a fabulous sea breeze. BUT, not a whole lot more to say that was positive. We ordered beverages. They took a very long... More

I love this place in terms of ambiance and food is decent and drinks are great... But there is anarchy with seating.... So they don't take reservations really for the tables and people stand around like vultures over pray waiting for a table to open.. With all the money they make , they can hire a minimum wage person to... More

We had an excellent lunch here, making the wait worth while. Very friendly and helpful staff. Bring a hat &/or sunglasses -- it is on the rooftop with no shade available.

The salmon was delicious, salad was fresh, and the waitress was absolutely delightful. Best part of all is the view. The beautiful turquoise ocean and cliffs are just below the deck no more than...
