Had the pleasure of meeting friends for a good concert in small venue. Excellent and we will be back for more! Food and service are questionable. Nothing new or different just overpriced. Eat at Maro Wood Grill and come for concert!

Food was very below average for this area of Laguna. Much better options in the area. The lobster was over cooked and dry. Went with a group and everyone agreed they wouldn’t go back.

The space heaters make the beautiful rooftop bar fun place to grab a drink and see the beautiful Christmas lights on the hills of Laguna Beach during the holidays.
