My wife an i have dined here many times in the past and again last night. The host was personable and attentive to our dining experince throughout the evening. We both started out with the beet salad which was excellent and my wife had the Hamachi which was also very good. I found it difficult to find an entree selection... More

If I were to say something negative about this restaurant or dining experience it would be a fabrication. Inventive, wonderful food, attentive service and great setting. The scallops were marvelous as was the pork chop. Try the Brussel Sprouts as a side. Don't miss this place if you're in the Laguna Beach area.

We had a family dinner at Broadway to celebrate our daughter's birthday. I can honestly say it was one of the best meals I've EVER had--starting with FREE RANGE ORGANIC EGG YOLK RAVIOLO and SAUTÉED MARY’S FARM CHICKEN LIVERS, then on to PAN ROASTED MAINE SEA SCALLOPS and HOUSE MADE CHOCOLATE CAVATELLI with a side of FRIED CAULIFLOWER. We finished... More

We had a great dinner at Broadway! Food nicely prepared and served. Too bad our table was too close to front front and bar and it was very noisy and distracting.

Visiting friends in Dana Pt. And we were excited to having dinner here. The menu is limited in the appetizer and salad offerings. Only one salad which is a kale Caesar. We did ask the waitress if they had anything else. She did come back and offered a spinach/arugula salad which we ordered to be shared between 3 of us.... More

For appetizers, raviolo was good but nicely presented octopus dish had to be sent back because it was chalked and bitter taste. For the entree, $12 each sea scallops also very nicely presented but were very salty thus killing a gentle sweetness of the dish. My lady didn’t want it to be sent back because I have already did it... More

We hadn't been to this restaurant since it was known as Five Feet. Broadway looks the same inside as it's predecessor and it's food was delicious. We travel to Laguna Beach several times a year and we are delighted to add Broadway to our list of culinary delights. The beet salad was fresh and the beets were tasty and perfectly... More

My wife and I have been to this restaurant many times - and enjoyed watching Amar on TOP CHEF. We haven't been in here in about a year and unfortunately it has gone DOWN HILL. Maybe Amar is distracted by his new restaurant but our recent experience makes it doubtful that I will ever return or recommend this place. First... More

For many their favorite is Broadway. It is often packed and for sure requires a reservation. We visited on this occasion on a weekday with reservations. We were seated and if I have a criticism and it is minor I felt as if the server wanted to get our orders placed whether drink or food and I felt a bit... More
