230 Forest Avenue

Don't be fooled by the crowds and the noise; they are all part of the scene here at Laguna Beach's sexy and intense 230 Forest Avenue. The lean deep room seduces you to the open kitchen, bustling bar, and concrete floors, creating a space that is part modern bistro, part martini bar, and part art gallery. It's the perfect spot to see and be seen,laid back Laguna-style. Executive Chef Marc Cohen is consistently recognized as one of The OC's top chefs. You'll be ready to award him a medal, too, after tasting his flashy-to-the-eye, tickle-the-taste buds fusion appetizers and entrees. His dishes are often so stunning that they compete with the artwork on the walls, making for a thoroughly satisfying "artistic" experience.

"My wife and I come up from San Diego a few times a year. When we do, we ALWAYS make dinner reservations at Forest 230. We are foodies and we LOVE fresh fish. It is prepared so well here at this Laguna Beach gem!!! I had the cioppino - which is the best i've ever had - and my wife had the sea bass which was cooked perfectly!! Presentation is always spot on. Service was great. The vibe was busy and exciting. My only question: Can't you please open a restaurant in San Diego????

"230 Forest is my favorite restaurant in Laguna Beach. The food is always good, the servers are well trained and the bartender makes great cocktails.. I think the ambiance at the restaurant is nicer on the patio than in the main restaurant where tables are very close together,"

"Overall great place with great food! We got the mussels and clams and Brussels sprouts for apps - both were out of this world. I had the Chilean sea bass and it was perfectly cooked. Will go again to order all of the above!"

"Originally reserved for 530pm but made a revision to later in the evening to 830pm. We showed up to a full house, was told by the hostess that wait might be 10 -30 minutes as they were still sitting 8pm reservations. The front handled all with care and all though patrons were still seated I can fully understand why. We were sat and with quick attention by staff quickly forgotten we had to wait. To add, the place is great the food is very good! Make one understand why there is always someone here, great tasting food, great selection and service and we came to find out that the chef doesn’t just buy source if it’s not up to standard. Good to know. We had a Top Chef evening and will be revisiting again very soon!"

"What I appreciate so much about 230 Forest is the consistency of great service, great atmosphere and always great food. From simple salads (seafood salad is great) to more elaborate dinner dishes, I am never disappointed. And my visit on January 1st was no exception!!"

"I really enjoyed my dinner at 230 Forest. My wife and I went for New Year's Eve. We had brussel sprouts & bacon, pork chops and cioppino. Also has some cocktails. Everything was really delicious. Will definitely go back again."
