LAGUNA BEACH - place for special dinner

nyperr | Jan 3, 201101:29 PM

I'm looking for a restaurant using fresh high quality local ingredients with some creativity. The quality of the food is more important than a trendy scene as we're coming from New York to take my mother out for her birthday.

A view would be nice plus but doesn't necessarily have to. California cuisine would be great but could be other regional American, French or Italian. Last year, we went to Stonehill Tavern and prior year, we chose Montage.

From the posts I've read, I am considering the following however, I've read mixed opinions about all of them:

230 Forest Avenue
Nirvanna Grille
Tabu Grille

Open to other ideas.....

230 Forest Avenue Restaurant
230 Forest Ave, Laguna Beach, CA 92651

Stonehill Tavern
St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort, Dana Point, CA 92629

448 S Coast Highway, Laguna Beach, CA 92651
