Had a friend in from out of town who is a meat eater for sure. Took a look at what might be just right for her and it was a hit. The restaurant is very small with most of the seating in a protected outside deck. We had reservations but had to wait a bit, not too long (It is... More

A friend and I had a luxurious and peaceful lunch today at Maro Wood Grill in Laguna Beach. We were warmly greeted by Stephano and seated in the shady and open garden of the restaurant. Lemon water was served to us right away and then a crisp Argentinian Sauvignon Blanc. We ordered mushroom and spinach empanadas and Okra and Edamame... More

We stopped here for drinks and apps and really enjoyed it. Most tables were outside and it was pretty warm. It would be nice to have some fans outside. The drink prices were pricey which I'm used to in SoCal but were quite a bit higher than similar establishments nearby (i.e. same exact wine was $4 more). However the empanadas... More

Headed to Maro's for a spur of the moment dinner with fiends. Enjoyed the wood-grilled edamame, organic green salad, and wood grilled salmon. Small place, intimate, not elegant surrounds, but elegant fare.

Maro Wood Grill – I rated this restaurant a two (poor) for its mediocre food and horrible value; the food at the price charged (value) are my key evaluative criteria in these reviews. Give the existing TA ratings, I had much higher expectations and was extremely disappointed with our lunch. Three in our party ordered the Argentinean Steak Sandwich on... More

Excellent across the board. Service, quality of ingredients, organic ... all fantastic. We had the salmon and ribeye. I recommend sitting at the bar to observe how a great kitchen works.
