Top date night dinners in Laguna Beach

Laguna Beach is well-known for it’s mild year-round climate, scenic beaches and exquisite art galleries. However, it doesn’t stop there. Laguna Beach is home to many appealing restaurants, filled with savory dishes and pleasant atmospheres. Whether it’s a first date, or your 25th anniversary, Laguna has the menu and cuisine to make your romantic evening perfect. Here’s to making your next date a home-run!

The Cliff

Perfect for an afternoon luncheon or fine dining experience, The Cliff offers 180 degree panoramic ocean views from its multi-level patio. Inhale the sea air, while nibbling on Calamari pan-seared crusted steak, juicy blackened Hawaiian yellow fin, or tender Dijon vinaigrette green beans. Then, stroll along the beach, or admire the eclectic art galleries surrounding The Cliff and finish off the evening watching the sunset sink below the waves from a smoldering fire pit. This full oceanside dining experience is simultaneously romantic and refreshing.

Ivory Restaurant and Lounge
Ivory and gold tones decorate this dimly lit modern lounge, complete with leather couches and dramatic drapes for a contemporary dining experience. Relax to strains of ambient jazz, and taste the freshest of California Cuisine including seasonal meats, seafood, and an extensive list of nearly 40 fine wines. From decadent Pear, Brie, Gorgonzola Salad, to melt-in-your-mouth Filet Mignon, and tangy Ginger Asian Coleslaw, Ivory has a flavor filled journey for every palette.

Just 25 feet above the sea, dine on fresh seaside cuisine inside, near an open window, or out on a palm shaded patio. Is your date vegetarian or gluten free? Good news! Splashes has a variety of gourmet options catering to individual needs. Try flavorful gluten-free ratatouille, salsify pappardelle, and wild king salmon soaked in saffron sauce, or savor vegetarian hearts of palm, with frisee & ache, fresh vegetables, and drizzled with orange and soy vinaigrette. Splashes makes thoughtfulness easy.

Complete with a bustling bar and lively atmosphere, Watermarc has an extensive menu filled with everything from the gigantic Burgundy Burger, to Sizzling Garlic Shrimp, and Herb Crusted Lamb Chops. If you’re looking for the perfect sweet, finish off your meal with tantalizing Ginger Pear Crisp covered in rich maple pecan crumbles and topped with honey. Enjoy half priced meals during Happy hour, or stop by for one of Laguna’s favorite breakfasts, lunches, or dinners!

The Loft
Savor creative American cuisine with breathtaking panoramic views of the ocean, a giant wood-burning rotisserie, and fresh, airy decor. Choose from over 150 cheeses at The Loft’s interactive cheese bar featuring regional favorites and exotic choices—each selection creativity paired with house-made condiments. Feel free to also wander over to The Loft Bistro, an intimate bar and select a meal from its light menu.

K’ya Bistro Bar
Located in the heart of Laguna Beach, K’ya Bistro is a favorite of Laguna locals. Using only high-quality fresh ingredients, K’ya boasts a diverse menu packed with colorful flavors of the Mediterranean.
