My (now) husband and I found Laguna Grill after searching for a few months for our perfect beach wedding venue as far south as Virginia Beach and as far north as New Jersey's beaches. We had specific things we were looking for and Laguna was a perfect fit for us! Christine (or Chris) the wedding coordinator there was fantastic. She helped with vendor recommendations, budgeting, ideas and any other need/request we had during the months leading up to the wedding. She was patient, friendly and professional. We had our menu tasting with our mom's and my husband's grandma. Chris was accommodating and impressed us all with her demeanor, knowledge and willingness to go the extra mile. The food was fantastic both at the tasting and on our actual wedding! We hired Chris for extra rehearsal dinner/beach ceremony execution/vendor contact service she offers on the day of our wedding and didn't regret spending the extra money one bit. Chris helped setup the room with my husband, some bridesmaids, groomsmen and family the afternoon of the wedding. I was so amazed by how beautiful the whole setup looked. At the reception, she refilled our drinks, brought my husband and I plated dinners from the buffet, checked in with not only us, but also guests to ensure they were comfortable and enjoying themselves. Chris was organized, calm, efficient and truly in control of the whole event from start to finish. We even got compliments from friends of ours on how "with it" she was as a wedding coordinator and that she was the best they'd seen! Laguna, the venue itself was beautiful, spacious, comfortable and has amazing beachfront views. It was perfect for our beach ceremony and reception that was only steps away. Chris truly surpassed our expectations every step of the way and made for a beautiful, memorable and relaxing wedding day.Sent on 07/23/2015

Laguna Grill was the absolute perfect place for a rehearsal dinner! I would also recommend doing a wedding there because everything was so perfect. Our guests stayed in the hotel above so it was very convenient. Laguna Grill had a beautiful private room set up for us that overlooked the ocean. The buffet looked so pretty, all of the tables were perfectly done and the service was excellent. But what I can't stop thinking about is the FOOD!! We had the best crab cakes filled with crab meat. We also had steak tips that just melted in your mouth. They did a beautiful champagne toast for us and finished with the best dessert - a "shoobie pie" filled with oreos, cream and hand-whipped ice cream. We had the best time there and everyone was telling me for days after how much they loved the food. I would recommend this place to everyone I know!Sent on 05/24/2015
