We have been to a lot of restaurants around the world and I don't remember giving any one an excellent before this... and I am quite critical. It was my wife's birthday and we had reservations. Arrived a little early but were seated immediately. Our waiter, Miguel, was excellent with everything... from drinks to wine and the food we ordered. My wife had a great Filet Mignon and I had the Blackened Seafood di Mare, all of which were done perfectly. Try it, we think you will like it. Just a note for you wine lovers. The policy of this restaurant is to charge a "corkage" fee for full bottles of wine, BUT we were advised of this ahead of our order so I can't ding them for this. It is just a management police.

We went to Nirvana for dinner while visiting Laguna Beach for Vacation. I am a vegetarian, and it is difficult to find entrees that actually feel like a full meal. The Veggie Plate was wonderful! Exceeded my expectations! My husband had the steak, and my son had gluten free breaded sword fish off of the kids meal. The kids menu is fantastic! Everyone loved their meal. The service was wonderful, best service we had out of any restaurant on our whole trip!

I have always loved this restaurant because they have the best menu choices and I think its one of the best places to eat in Laguna Beach. The owners personally work the restaurant hands-on and they are nicest people Luis and his wife Lindsay is the Executive Chef and the finest chef in Laguna Beach! . They go out of their way to make sure that each guest is treated special and feel at home. The ambiance is very nice and they have a extensive wine list. They also carry "Tres Sietes Tequila" which i think is the finest tequila ever made. I high recommend. Tell them that Brady Bunte sent you!

My vegan wife loves this place. The atmosphere matches the care given to each plate of food. They have a great wine selection and fresh, hand-crafted dishes of seafood and steaks. The service is also friendly.

A few blocks from the Laguna Playhouse (which is next door to the Pageant of the Masters.) The upstairs deck is delightful for dining. Dinner was very good. Fresh ingredients, excellent produce, meats and fish. I had filet mignon cooked to perfection and my husband loved his rack of lamb. Excellent local restaurant.
