Stopped for lunch on a weekday while driving through Laguna Beach. The restaurant was nearly full and we didn't have reservations but we got a table for six within a reasonable 15 minutes. The table was in the last row from the beach facing patio...More

Loved this place so much! We had breakfast overlooking the ocean. The food was definitely gourmet. It seemed like they only hired young handsome men to be waiters and busboys. Our waiter was very nice helpful and accommodating. He even offered to let us use...More

I've discounted a couple of negatives to give this restaurant a 5 star, because on the whole, it's really a good place to dine. Our server, Heather, was terrific, and the other servers were also clearly good with their customers as well as helping at...More

The hotel clerk recommended this place. It is pricey but we couldn't get into the sister-restaurant, The Deck. The crab cake was to die for. The staff was wonderful. We enjoyed the view with our dinner. It over looks the ocean.

At Driftwood Kitchen there aren't that many tables outdoors. Just a small surround lined with small tables so most tables are inside. In case of rain I'm sure they would seat you inside. There is a good view from wherever... More
