Watermarc Restaurant

448 S. Coast Highway Laguna Beach, CA 92651 | Laguna Beach | 949-376-6272

Location Description:

Helmed by chef/owner Marc Cohen, who’d previously built a solid reputation in town with his 230 Forest, Watermarc seems to have earned the approval of Laguna Beach's discriminating palates faster than most. A can't-miss is the house-made seafood sausage, for which crab meat and fish mousse are piped into natural casing and served over a bowl of stewed white beans—an appetizer invested with more thought and care than is required.
