Had Thanksgiving dinner here. Beautiful sunset while dining on the deck overlooking the beach. That part was awesome! The food, service and cleanliness were sub par. I wouldn't recommend dining here, but coctails on the deck overlooking the beach woulod be enjoyable.

The trick is, go up the stairs and sit on the cozy deck with a view of Main Beach. The cream of asparagus soup was amazing. They have a French singer on Friday nights.

We have many wonderful restaurants in Laguna Beach... This is not one of them. The food is mediocre at best, the servers are unprofessional and the owner is just plain rude. Go anyplace else in Laguna.
