Unbelievable amount of crab meat in this omelette! Pair this with Stunning Views and you have a wonderful start to your morning.
Brunch is incredible here. Wonderful options for sweet or savory with a great selection of seafood too!
I eat here often and the food never disappoints! Fantastic, creative dishes. The octopus stands out as one of my favorites. Perfectly seasoned, tender...delicious!
Amazing!!! Really life changing
Fresh and mouth watering seafoods. Deliciously prepared seafood tower. The lobster spaghetti carbonara is sooooo delicious. 5 star and thumbs up on Driftwood Kitchen. Friendly and attentive servers.
These are the tacos were absolutely wonderful. I kind of got outside of my box and ate the yellow fin tuna uncooked. It was well worth every bite, very fresh healthy and refreshing. Absolutely love this restaurant.
Best bread I've ever had
Colorful and delicious!
My friend and I visit this restaurant every time we come to Laguna, it is our #1 stop. Everything we have ordered has been phenomenal, but I can't say enough about the Eggs & Bacon dish at brunch. It's so simple, but so delicious. And they always accommodate for my low carb diet by replacing the carbs with something else, which I really appreciate.
To die for. I had it sept 23 for my BDay. It was a touch of Spain with a spice of pico de Gallo. So so good. Paired with Proseco
So fresh, from the flavor, to the color, to the texture. Completely worth it, my girlfriend hates seafood and she still couldn't keep from trying a bit of each. Actually the freshest seafood Ive ever had.
This steak was absolute perfection, and with a view like that? Nothing can top it. The fries were so crispy and well seasoned. My favorite dish of the day
The swordfish was perfectly cooked and the sides matched perfectly with it. The entrée was bigger than we expected! Absolutely delicious. Also amazing staff and location.
the best ever We had the tower 2 years ago In may sitting out of the deck...It was my partners birthday and its been all he could talk about for months..GREAT food,,,,and wonderful staff.
My group of three came here for a girls brunch by the water and were pleasantly met by great service and an amazing view outside. Everything about our experience was great including +the food. We waited for a table outside but the wait wasn't long at all. We ordered drinks at the bar (aperols & bloody mary) to pass the time but we weren't even finished with our drinks by the time our table was ready! We ordered the DK Benedict's--one original and one with +crab meat. We loved both and as "egg benny" aficionados it was great to have a coastal seaside twist on a traditional breakfast/brunch item. We'll definitely be coming back again!
I had the Salmon with broccolini and mashed potatoes. It was amazing. The staff was spectacular and went out of their way to accommodate us under the circumstances. I can't wait to go back!
Beautiful location, great ambiance, and the lobster spaghetti carbonara was perfectly prepared. Just the right amount of indulgence for a fun girlfriends outing. Delightfully unexpected flavor combo - a must try!
On a hope and a prayer, we approached Driftwood one night - a family of 5, with a child in a wheelchair and no reservation. After learning they were completly booked, we turned to walk away. A manager ran out and welcomed us and seated us in front of a reservation that would arrive in an hour. We knew our time was limited but were relieved after much walking and being turned away from other full restaurants. The service was welcoming and wonderful, and I know I had a salmon dish that was divine. But what I remember most besides the service, was the Black Pearl cocktail. I am planning a return trip - just my daughter and me this time, and we hope to sit outside and I cannot wait to have a Black Pearl or two!
We were try to find a good restaurant through the google reviews and decided to go to Driftwood Kitchen for our 11th anniversary. I am a seafood lover and tried many seafood plates from many restaurants especially mussel dishes cuz I love mussels. We ordered Steamed Carlsbad Mussels, Beach burger, Steak and egg and Grilled Swordfish sandwich. Everything was good but Steamed Carlsbad Mussles was the best of the best. Mussels are so fresh and juicy plus garlic toast on the top of the Mussels were fantastic! Even soup is so delicious and it is paired nicely with garlic toast. Fantastic ocean view is another lovely point. I will definitely come back in the near future.
The DK Benedict was just so delicious, mesmerizing and appetizing! The eggs were perfectly poached on top of the savory ham. When breaking into the egg, the yellow beauty of the yolk came rushing out. To top it all off, it was smothered in their creamy buttery hollandaise sauce. Each bite was heavenly and perfect! Even the english muffins were soft and chewy...I will be going back for more soon! Thank you, Driftwood Kitchen, for an awesome brunch experience.
I had the Spanish grilled octopus and the grilled swordfish...they were both beyond amazing. You have to try them!
Driftwood is one of my favorite places to enjoy a wonderful brunch. Great food, location and fantastic staff.
The best French toast in Orange County! The granola crust with the hazelnut butter is just amazing.
The very best short rib I have ever had! I told my fiancé about it and now he can't wait to try it as well. We are taking a small group to dinner this Sunday (they're are special family from out of town celebrating her 50th birthday) and we simply cannot wait!
Amazing short rib! So good!
I love this place so much so I celebrated my 30th birthday here!
Very flavorful Grilled Swordfish Sandwich. The focaccia bread and aioli accent the fish very well. I almost ordered another one to take home with me. The fries were thick and perfectly salted.
I loved the dining area with the ocean view. Great natural light. The eggs Benedict with crab meat was delish, as well as, the potatoes that came with it. The black and blue drink complimented the meal perfectly. I had several. Recommend!!
Love the gelato
Pre-Covid: We came with a group of 15 ate indoors. All the food looked amazing and it was very good. The service was excellent The cocktail selections was excellent Great selection of wine (red and white) They do not skimp on the portions - I couldn't finished my scrumptious sea bass. The group pretty much ordered everything that was on the dinner menu and everyone enjoyed their meal. It is a wonderful place, great ambience, and come in before sunset - it is just so stunning!
When I had this burger I figured it was going to be just like an ordinary Burger but I will say that it had to be probably one of the best burgers I have had. The meat was perfectly cooked and juicy it was perfect with the bun.
My man had the steak and eggs and loved it. I had the eggs Benedict and it was marvelous. Of course we had to have some spicy bloody Mary's to make it the perfect end to our getaway. We'll definitely be coming back for our anniversary now that things are getting back to normal. Can't wait.
TOWER of sea food was just out of this world....my partner and I had it on his birthday...it was by far the best meal we had had all year I do see this in the menu or a photo I wanted to bring guest from the east coast out there..and sit on the patio
I had the eggs benedict and my mom had oysters one Sunday afternoon. It was amazing! Our table overlooked the Pacific Ocean and we watched the waves below The restaurant was clean with such an open feel. The staff was friendly and helpful. I will drive back up from San Diego and try more items!
Delicious dish to share. Everyone at the table should have a bite of this delicately grilled octopus. Brought together by the creamy puree, vinaigrette and lemon citrus. Its hard to pick just one dish from the menu, we often get many to share.
Possibly the most amazing dish on their impressive menu. We loved everything but this really stood out. The octopus was tender, the hummus and accompaniments went amazingly well together. One of the best bites you could ever have.
This was hands down the best French toast ever!
Crunchy, sweet, and full of nutty flavors. Toddler favorite!
I couldn't find one thing wrong with brunch today. Arrived a bit early, host sent us to the back where we were greeted and seated by the window with an amazing view of the ocean. Pancakes were so good that I'm now craving it. We also split the Benedict and it's probably one of the best we've had. An amazing brunch...thank you DK. See you again soon.
