This place has closed and do not understand why. This was one of the best allaround restaurants anywhere for many years. Great Champagne Bar, Great people and incredible food at less than outrageous pricing

If you are a Manhattan drinker, this is a must. There is also a full service restaurant attached, but the bar has a great Tapas menu.

Food was inconsistent music overbearing. But it has an interesting ambience. I had one very good meal there that was tasty and another, their specialty some swedish meatball dish that tasted like it came from a Weight Watchers packet.

It is a shame to see good restaurants close. Alas, French 75 in Laguna Beach has accepted a buy out offer and has closed its doors forever. On a positive note, Laguna Beach has many excellent restaurants to choose from.

Energetic noise level, cramped seating but great service and amazing food! The Beef Stroganaff is amazing and the New York steak melts in your mouth.

Two couples, at a window table, on a foggy night, having superb food and wine, with attentive service. Not rushed (it was a Tuesday), just hit all the right notes.

Went to French 75 last night. I ordered the seafood bouillabaisse and husband ordered the steak. He thought his was average, while I thought the bouillabaisse was terribly underwhelming. Fish was fishy, mussels microscopic, scallops overcooked, broth not flavorful enough to add any taste to...More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hosts at the Carriage House around the corner. We arrived on a Thursday night in late August without a reservation and were warmly welcomed. There was live jazz music (bonus!). The menu was classic French, not too long...More

We had dinner there last night and everything was wonderful! The atmosphere, the piano player and the food! Lamb chops were to die for, pasta dish was amazing, sea bass was excellent! Service was top notch. We WILL return when business takes us back out...More

This French & American bistro features contemporary renderings of classic bistro dishes such as escargot cassolette, shrimp Provençal and an off the grill selection for the classic American palate. The décor inside this 70-year old cottage that houses the bistro is rich and romantic, with intimate ambience. The charming bar offers an extensive selection of champagne cocktails and house made martinis; a mural on its ceiling depicts a “champagne war” between cherubs and monkeys holding bottles of champagne. Patio dining is also available in the Garden which sits directly on Pacific Coast Highway. They have Happy Hour from 4:30 to 6:30 PM nightly along with live entertainment starting at 7:00 PM. This is the perfect spot to spend on a date, for company dinners, or just a relaxing night away from your everyday life.
