First time in California and this place was just perfect. Breakfast overlooking the Pacific. The staff just couldn't do enough and the food was simply sublime.

Loved the bar area and entry, felt like a classic old house turned into a restaurant. Excellent service, delicious appetizers and main courses (though the Lobster spaghetti was overly salty in my opinion). The classic cocktails are a nice touch as well.

The hostess was very nice and accommodated our seating request on outside balcony with great views of Laguna. The waitress was very efficient an delivered a delicious swordfish sandwich.

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
