What could be better? The seafood salad is amazing. It is huge! It is filled to the brim with lots of shrimp, crab, etc. You really will not believe that salad. How about walking in, sitting down, and your server brings a brown sack filled with hot fresh baked? For those of us who are starving or want a starter with a drink, this is your go to restaurant! My tuna tower,for those of you who love tuna tartare, was delish. The tuna is so fresh and the spices are just right giving the dish a perfect kick. After all the healthy food, dip into a few skinny fries. They are the best ever, I promise. On the menu they are offered with truffle oil but you can get without the oil. We like old fashioned plain fries and oh my, were these good!

The location is right where you want to be to see Forest Avenue's fine arts, clothes, and creative artsy items (great for gifts).

Fill your body and soul with delicious 230 food and use your mind to enjoy all thatForest Avenue offers. A perfect evening with an authentic Laguna experience!

We had an excellent meal at this restaurant before going to ThePageant of the Masters. A friend had recommended our going because she said my husband would love their seafood chopped salad. He did. However, I ordered the same salad only with teriyaki glazed chicken. When it was finally complete it was wonderful. I have had this experience before at other places when there are a lot of ingredients in a salad; some get left out. They left out the avocado and gorgonzola cheese. The reason I still gave it 5 stars because the problem was pleasantly and immediately rectified. In fact, the manager Berardo, came over to apologize and offered us a dessert. The fantastic and amiable server, Sarah, suggested the bread pudding, which was delicious. I do recommend this restaurant highly.

This is definitely a “go to” spot when visiting LB! We both enjoyed our entrees, you can’t beat fresh fish!

The best brussels sprouts anywhere. Make sure you try the chocolate croissant bread pudding too.
For a fun drink order the June Gloom martini. It isn’t on the menu but you’ll like it.

They certainly serve outstanding hamburgers. The caramelized onion topping is special. The BLT, is different, and was disappointing. The bacon was more like a fat slice crispy ham, so read the fine print on the menu.
