We had a three-night stay at the Montage Laguna Beach and this was the only place we went off-property for, based on both a friend's recommendation as well as the Top Chef connection. On a 12-day trip, this was one of my two favorite meals. The cookery was sneaky good as was the use of vegetables, which usually portends the... More

It's been a few years since a new restaurant causes such an impact in Laguna Beach, and this is one of them. Besides having great location, decor and ambiance, the food is brilliantly flavored, designed and presented. To test how far they are from the original taste of Spain, I ordered the "House made Squid Ink Cavatelli" which has shrimp,... More

We had a pretty perfect dinner here with friends the night before they got married. Great cocktails, great wine list, great service. Interesting menu. Felt more NYC than Laguna Beach. A very enjoyable fine-dining experience.

You really need to be willing to stretch yourself when you come here. Everything is inventive and unique. The chef is really imaginative and does a great job. The best way to eat here is to share everything. It is easy to make a meal of just the small plates, which are delicious. sitting at the bar is also great,... More

Amar and team always create a great dining experience. Crazy to think Broadway is number 1 in Laguna Beach. Skip the Mozambique and Orange Inn silly ratings and go to Broadway.

What a hidden gem in Laguna Beach ! We had client dinner at Broadway by Amar Santana. This restaurant is a "hot spot" in Orange County. Better make reservations as there were people out the door when we arrived and more people arriving when we left. The service is top notch and the menu selection was just outstanding. I pride...

Finally visited this Laguna Beach gem and found it dazzling. The seasonal oysters and Loucette citrus cocktail was a great start. Shared a Kale Caesar for tasty greens and loved the calamari, sea urchin, shrimp with inky pasta second. The toffee pudding with pears was out of this world. A fun splurge with a beautiful sunset just steps away. The... More

Reserved a table based on Yelp reviews. Make sure you have reservations because this place fills up fast. The tables are more packed than I would like, though the seating felt fine, but the food more than made up for it. Had the duck, egg yolk raviolo, and panna cotta. Each were delicious. The panna cotta made the largest impact... More
