Our server, Randy, was just exceptional. It was our first visit to this restaurant, and we had no idea what to expect. Randy assured us and made recommendations which gave us a confident start to our dinner. The owner was also very available and assisted with everything from start to finish. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed their food choices, and we shared a delicious Key Lime dessert that was a great finish. If you are looking for a bright spot for casual and delicious food, try Laguna Cafe!

Food was good, the drinks were good (the lemon basil hard cider was amazing,) the waitress was nice, but the live music was too loud and distracting for my taste, but he played well.

First time to this South Hill location. Free parking in the back (off 29th) and it is close by the entrance door. The menu was well varied with adequate wine choices. My dining partner choose to have hot tea with her meal and there was a nice selection for her. Just happened to be there when a woman started to play the keyboards and sing. It was a nice finish to the dinner, but I did not find out how often she is there. We will be back because there were interesting menu items we did not try. They have a worthwhile happy hour also.

I have taken a good friend to Laguna Café where we enjoyed an amazing meal, AND wine, AND shared dessert. She raved about Laguna and said she would bring her husband clear across town to experience the food and ambience. This time, I went with my ex-husband, and he was very impressed with the food. There's no question I will take a business associate, a family member or another friend to Laguna Café any time I have the chance. I love everything about it!

Dan and Debbie (and the whole staff) totally knock it out of the park every time I have eaten at the Laguna Cafe. The food is always excellent, service is superb and the ambiance is always wonderful. Debbie and her crew perform miracles back in the kitchen while Dan keeps everything flowing out front - always having the time to stop by at every table to check in, make sure that everything is up to standard and then brings a personal touch to tell a story about how a particular dish was developed or a reflection on life with a great story or joke. This is an outstanding local restaurant that goes above and beyond because they care about you, the amazing food and fun atmosphere they proudly create. I can’t recommend the Laguna Cafe enough. Whenever I have a celebration or have friends or family in town, this is where we always go because I can guarantee it will be a perfect meal and a fun evening. Support a local business. You won’t be disappointed.

They charge a service fee when using a passport card. When you ask them about it, they say passport requires it. Not true, I use the passport card all over town and no one else charges a servicing fee. Just be sure to not over too as the service fee is considered the tip.

Food was fair, nothing special and so a bit overpriced. There was a weird guy walking around asking how food was and cracking not so funny jokes.

We had a great time at Laguna Cafe. We had a party of 8 and they had the best setup I have seen in a restaurant for group this size. It was a high top square table with a lazy susan in the middle.
So often with large groups the conversation breaks into small groups but this table made it easy for conversation.

The food was very good and the service was good also. The thing that left us wondering was the mandatory 15% service charge (which was also subject to sales tax). It seemed to be excessive and also almost sneaky. If you need to raise menu prices to pay a fair wage, that is understandable, however, this strategy doesn't seem right somehow. It's too bad, because we enjoyed going to Laguna prior to this visit. Not sure we will be returning though, with this uneasy development.

Love this place! The Thanksgiving Dinner (all year round) satisfies your turkey craving. The seafood crostini is delicious and unusual. And the chocolate torte — no words for the decadent treat!

We have an excellent lunch at Laguna Cafe. Ate outside since weather nice. Area outside on the road, but still nice for lunch. We had a vey good server who was attentive in spite of having a number of tables to cover. Impressed by quality of iced tea. My guest had the crab salad. It had a good amount of crab on it and nice bed of greens. I had the chicken caesar wrap. Perfectly done as I would expect from a california themed place. More than I needed so the rest became my lunch the next day. Will be going back.
