I really wanted to Rate this place a 5 star but I had no choice but rate it a 3 star.
So my friend told me about this place and told me how Amazing it was. So we all went on a Girls trip and drove 2 hours. Because of COVID 19 we needed to reserve to be on the waitlist on yelp. It was quick and easy no problem.

The outdoor Restaurant was adorable, the food was surprisingly good! And the service was excellent. We got the Ahi Poke and Raw Scallops appetizers and they were both really delicious and fresh. The drinks were good and not too sugary. Was nice and not too crowded on a week day!

I haven't been out in months so a night out is just what the Dr ordered! The restaurant didn't take reservations but you had to check in beforehand. Not a big deal.

Hubby and I made our way up to Laguna Beach to get some sun and salty air after being at home for months. Since some restrictions on restaurants have been lifted, we decided to finally enjoy a date night that doesn't involve food in a styrofoam or cooking. We saw that this place had an outdoor patio for dining in, we decided to try i ... read more

Found this place on accident. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but wow! Really cool beach vibe overlooking the water. Great service and 4-5 star food at a 3 star price. Our server, Hannah, was awesome. Going to make it a point to come here each time we are in town.

My husband and I were here last Wednesday. We went to a couple other places with no reservations and they said the wait was over an hour. We went here and the wait was 45 mins. Truly it was about 20. The ceviche was ok, the drinks were very good. The shots were more like doubles. The dinners were amazing! So, just to give an idea, 6 ... read more

Great atmosphere with great ocean views.  Service is Profesional.  Food is good and portions are generous .  Not great good but pretty darn good.  The grilled scallops and grilled shrimp lacked a little texture and taste but was still enjoyable.

Came here with my best friend and we had an awesome time together.  Service, view, drinks, food they were all awesome.  I'd go during sunset because not only do you have a beautiful view but the lights that they turn on after dark make it seem like you're at another different place.  I definitely recommend!

With the reopening of restaurants in Orange County, I wanted to celebrate Father's Day a week ahead of schedule and picked Laguna.  I drove past The Cliff on PCH and randomly decided that's the place.  Not sure if this place would allow my mini poodle, but it seemed it wouldn't hurt to try.  The wait was 3.5 hours for lunch.  I liste ... read more

For those that want to eat outdoors with an ocean view, the Cliff Restaurant was a nice change from your average restaurant. The staff wore masks and gloves. The food was good as expected.
