"Haven't been back for a while. Menu has a lot more options to enhance your meal. Arugula & beet salad was great. Sirloin was cooked perfect. Bartender mixes a good drink. It's also quiet enough to hear your partner talk. Will have to come back more often."

"Was not impressed with the food. Don't get me wrong. It was decent, not exceptional. Definitely not worth the price. There aren't many places that I would consistently go back to in Laguna Beach. Nirvana Grille is not on that list."

"We visited during the new menu week when all new menu items are 1/2 off.
We love that. Our server, Oksana, was super attentive. My husband's Prime Rib delicious and large! The beet salad was yummy. The restaurant is very cozy with many tables quite close to each other unless you're at a booth. The energy is cool and the decor really nice. Enjoy!

"Food was overpriced and not good! My starter was the smallest piece of burrata with tomatoes , drenched in balsamic, so sweet , could not eat it .
My swordfish was so dry and the vegetables , sauce and purée was so average
A big disappointment for me

"went with my wife, and sister on a busy saturday night. the experience was first class. a casual, but still classy ambiance. the entire staff could not have been nicer, as well as very professional, but not in an attitudinal way. and, of course, the food was wonderful. we'll be back soon!"

"Don't let the name Nirvana Grill keep you away .. We were in Laguna Beach from Scottsdale, AZ and had dinner here on our last night. Had we known how good it was we would have eaten here more than once ! Crab cakes were absolutely awesome ... Blue lip mussels topped with herbed shoestring French fries is not only a novel idea but, oh so good, and the broth was out of this world. The Herbs De Provence chicken with Parmesan mushroom risotto was so good I could have licked the plate and eaten the bones !"

"Reserved a table for 4. Arrived early and was seated without any problems. I ordered the Ginger Mustard Salmon. Others around the table ordered Lobster bisque and Mussels (which he said was a great value considering how many he received!), another had Grilled Shrimp and Risotto, and the fourth person had the Beef Short Ribs. All was delicious and we ate the lot! No complaints here!
Finished off with Gelato.
It was a nice surprise to find great tasting food locally.

"We loved Nirvana Grill. Excellent service and delicious food. Vegan/vegetarian friendly and nice wine list as well. We will be back when we visit Laguna Beach again!"

"I have eaten at this restaurant quite a few times and have always loved the experience. That is until this past Valentine’s Day. The wait was unbelievable (dinner took over three hours) and when we did get the food it was overcooked and cool to the touch. They prepared another steak for my girlfriend and it too was overcooked and I was done with my food at that point. I hope this bad experience was just being over extended on Valentine’s Day."

"My wife and I had an amazing experience at Laguna Beach's very own Nirvana Grill this past weekend on Valentines Day (2016). If you haven't been, I highly recommend check it out with someone special. It will definitely be a time to remember..."

"My wife and I went on Valentines day so that probably effected the service and ambiance but they felt understaffed and over crowded. This might not be the usual as our server was very nice and actually took two drinks off our bill in recognition of the slow service. I doubt he does that unless this was unusual. Anyway, food is great and nice staff. Would recommend for a date night but a little older crowd would keep me from bringing a group of friends."

"No apologies for the poor service, it took over 2 and a half hours to get our food orders and that was the same for all the people around us, in addition when we did get our food it was so cold we did not eat it, we could not get out of the place fast enough !!!!"

"Had a reservation for 715 didnt get our food until 930. Waiter said there was a mixup in the kitchen? There were alot of irate people in the restaurant as 5 or 6 tables had to wait forever also. Figured it would be busy because of VDay,but this was unacceptable!"
