    Asked for window sitting on reservation. Hostess said they never received it and dismissed our request for a window. Hostess attitude left a lot to be desired.

    The food and drinks are phenomenal. Service was a bit slow for a Monday afternoon, but the food was so good, I am willing to come back.

    Laguna Beach was very busy with tourists on Saturday. The food was excellent, service excellent and the Vallet was a life saver for sure! We will be back again as we enjoy all the South of Nicks restaurants.

    Food is always excellent and we haven't been there for a while. They've added birira dishes to the menu. I had the tacos and loved them. Will recommend them to my friends.
