Lovely Atmosphere, perfect Waitstaff, but food was disappointing. It's hard for a decent Restuarant to mess up Mussel M'Juere (sp), but that they did. No white wine or tomatoes - just garlic and cream. Too heavy, and not appetizing. Similar with the Bouillebaise - nicely...More

Four of us ate at Nirvana Grille and enjoyed every minute of it. I braved ordering the kale salad and found it surprisingly light and delicious. The burrata and heirloom tomato salad was excellent, as was the wild mushroom ravioli. But my favorite was the...More

Fresh fish prepared to perfection. Never had a bad meal and they make their own ice cream. Varied menu will please the most picky culinary.

Having eaten here only once before, I checked their menu before making a reservation for myself, my husband and our 13 month old son. I incorrectly deduced that their kids menu was a good indicator that they would be family friendly. When we arrived, one...More

With so many good eating establishments to choose from in Laguna Beach, it's easy to find a favorite and just stick with that one. However, if you did, you would miss out on finding a place like Nirvana. We first tried Nirvana with a Groupon,...More

Our Laguna Beach location is ideally situated blocks from both the beach and the historic art festivals. Close to all major access points it is poised to provide a fantastic dining experience with quality and conscious food. The rhythm of our Laguna restaurant is lively, upbeat and with the addition of a full service bar, a hot spot for locals and tourists alike. Our communal bar tables provide the opportunity to meet your neighbors, while our intimate booths offer more privacy for small gatherings and our ‘Chef’s Table’ allows groups of 12 and under to enjoy Semi- private dining. Our “Bliss Bar” Rooftop Patio with a peek-a-boo ocean and city views, offers the perfect experience with al-fresco evening dining or cocktails & appetizers in our lounge. This location is available for any & all private events for lunches, dinners, or cocktail receptions. Available for Showers, Weddings, Corporate Events, Special Occasions, Large Parties, or just dinner for 2. Our philosophy begins at the local level working closely with area growers and the highest quality purveyors to ensure that our predominately organic produce, meat, wild fish & free-range chicken are provided. Nightly specials include: Tuesday: Local’s Night (20% off), Wednesday: Wine Night (Complimentary Corkage-2 bottle maximum), Thursday: 3 course $30/40 Prix Fixe Menu, Sunday: $15 Chef's Special. We also offer Happy Hour all night, at our communal bar area, including 50% off salads, soups and appetizers (not including protein add-ons).
