This was a nice place with a kind of relaxed atmosphere even though it felt a little fancy. The service was excellent! The food is a little bit pricey but I really enjoyed my choice of food. They had really nice menu.

First time at the restaurant with my wife and mom. Everything was great. Service was friendly. The food was very good and well priced, especially for Laguna. Cocktails were tasty as well. We'll definitely go back!
