Good wine, great food, nice atmosphere. Great music that wasn't over powering.
Always fun and the wine is excellent
Good food and wine, friendly staff, quiet, laid-back ambience.
Amazing location, service, and wine!
It’s Saturday evening….What fun to do a delicious Wine Flight (both whites snd red wines) with live music (5-8pm), on the patio, with delicious sliders and crab cakes from Chef Cynthia of Taste Collection & Chris Tzorin. Wonderful!
Our Wine Ambassador was Shane Smith and in addition to being very handsome he has the best manners snd describes the wines perfectly! Wait Shane let me close my eyes…. So fun and just what we needed To Get Out!!! Thank you all. We can’t wait to come back and try the Port!! Oh yeah!!!
Great wines! Nice to have a good local winery to go to often.
First off, I think McClain Cellars wines are excellent and the service we received was outstanding. The location is a little small but didn't feel crowded, it made it feel cozy. Our server was great and was very knowledgeable about all their wines.
We did the flights (one white and one red). It was a great way to spend the afternoon and great service. We really did it need a reservation as it was not overly busy nor did they have a reserved seat for us upon arrival. They did have live music (Frank DeVaul) which was a nice perk and made the experience more enjoyable. The biggest draw back was the lack of pairings for the wine like cheese, prosciutto, salami, etc. you can purchase a limited about of items but they are basically ore packed store bought style. The options did not allow a variety or way to specifically select things for the flights. I believe they has a package of salami with Asiago cheese and crackers, a package of mozzarella and some meat with crackers, and then a cheddar version. No way to have a customized board of items. Overall, a great way to spend the afternoon or early evening just plan a nice meal afterwards.
Met owner who has inspiring story. Great wine. Bad parking with sawdust festival. They hoping to make fresh food too but right now just packaged stuff. Their popcorn is very tasty.
We had dinner reservations and wanted a glass of wine to start our evening. Had a great time.
We celebrated August birthday’s
It was my daughters birthday!
Such a great place! You should go!
Quiet small relaxing place,a bit pricey for snacks but the girl that that helped us was very nice. Overall it was ok.
I love this place, great staff , the wine is amazing and the best view in beautiful Laguna Beach.
Cute newish venue with great wine!!
Caitlin was a wonderful server! She was very knowledgeable and attentive. The location was VERY loud and crowded. Definitely make a reservation before showing up!
The server was fantastic and catered to our needs. The place has a cool vibe and the jazz music playing was the best. The wine is fantastic and the entire experience was relaxing and fun. I would highly recommend coming down here to do a tasting and enjoying the experience. Everyone in my party said they would like to come back again.
Good wines and a small selection of snacks. They are mid-priced wines ($30-$70ish), all good or great wines with one or two amazing. Didn't have any bad wines and ended up joining the club.
It was good.
Very, very slow to refill glasses during tasting. Had to ask for water multiple times to get a little at a time. Wine seems overpriced for the quality. Their little deli was wiped out when we arrived and had only a few choices left. Popcorn was out and no flights available.
Teleia, thank you for taking the time to write us a review. I am so sorry to hear that your experience was not 5 out of 5. While we wish we could offer our guests more food options, as a winery we are limited in what we are able to legally serve. Additionally, as I'm sure you have seen at many other places, many places in the country are experiencing food and supply shortages due to increased demand and not enough supply -- sadly, just another downstream effect of the pandemic on small businesses :( As to the service you received, I am sorry that you felt it was not fast enough. It’s not an easy task to make sure that we pace each guest at the speed that they want to enjoy themselves. Some people drink quickly while others take more time and are not as quick. We do our level best to pay attention to every guest so that our timing is perfect. I really wish we could given you what you wanted -- we would love to have the opportunity to try again and provide you with the best possible experience.
Went in for a date night, made a reservation and wasn’t seated until we walked past the host stand, and then inside. When we WERE finally greeted, the hostess was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the menu. When we sat down, no one came to our table for 15 mins so we decided to look at the “charcuterie boards” which are just high priced prepackaged meats and cheeses that you can buy at the gas station. 15 more minutes went by and still no service. So we got up and left. I recommend the brewery next door.
Went here for the first time since I started following their Facebook page. Was very pleasantly surprised to find a quaint local wine tasting Venue. Taylor was our server and she did an amazing job. Super attentive friendly and helpful. Made for a fun experience. We joined the wine club as well. Wines were easy and smooth drinking. Next to some great restaurants as well.
Amazing customer service! The staff we encountered were friendly, upbeat, and had great conversation. They seemed to really be happy and genuine, which made our experience awesome. We did not get anything to eat, but we enjoyed the great selection of wines. We liked the option to be able to select reds/whites because two in my party don't like whites and the other doesn't like reds, but McCain's menu option allowed us all to get what we wanted. The space has some cute artistic elements which appeal to me and also provided some great photo ops with my friends. Plus the live music was quite good and wasn't so loud that you couldn't hear. I will definitely return as this was just an overall great experience to enjoy with my friends.
Good service & wine! We’ll definitely be back.
Always worth the drive from LA!
Wine is quite good, but pricey. Service was very attentive. Music was good. We were disappointed no popcorn was available. As a result we had to choose food from inside and were surprised when our bill came and the food price exceeded what the menu indicated.
We had so much fun wine tasting!
Excellent as always
Great service, friendly staff, always a treat to spend time at the lounge.
We came here for an afternoon adventure this weekend and loved it. Everyone is so kind and helpful. Parking was easy and we had a perfect table. My dad did a white tasting and I had a glass of the Open Arms. We also both tried the Port and decided it just wasn't our jam for the day but it was so kind of them to allow us to try it. They were sold out of their popcorn and I was so sad because it sounded like such a fun accompaniment to the wine so we will definitely be back for more wine and hopefully popcorn!
Special shout out to Bailey and Caitlin (apologies if I misspelled names or got them wrong!) They were both so kind and helpful! We would come back just because of their customer service!
McClain is the perfect place to spend a casual weekend. The wine is OUTSTANDING! The make-your-own cheese board was such a fun idea! We loved every minute of our experience. As we were leaving for our next destination, they started setting up live music too! One thing we wish the had was more food or maybe a food truck parked close where we could buy food from. We wanted to stay longer but couldn't eat only cheese and crackers.
We loved sipping wine, talking, and enjoyed our visit!
Took my daughter for her 24th bday as we love wine. Our server Julia was excellent and so nice! We enjoyed the atmosphere and wine. We will be back!
Such a nice place. Our ladies night was so much fun here. We had the best server and the flights are a great deal. Would highly recommend going here.
Perfect little hideaway for a wine tasting. Super friendly service and great wine.
What a great experience! It was our first time at McClain Cellars, and our waitress was phenomenal! So knowledgeable and a great personality! Plus, the wine flights were absolutely delicious! Even bought a few bottles! We tried their gourmet popcorn flight as well! Yum! We look forward to coming back next time we’re in Laguna!
Don't go hungry. The only food options are popcorn and so called (not as advertised) "charcuterie" which is a display case of pre-packaged crackers, cheese and meat (sold out) that you unwrap at your table (they provide the plates.) The "Popcorn Sampler" sounded like fun until we saw and tasted it. $12 for 4 small, bland cups. Cost to make? .50 cents MAX. Charging $12 is greedy. Why not provide it free with a wine flight or bottle? It costs almost nothing to make. The wine's were good; flights run $20-35 for 5 pours. Our server struggled with timing so we had to wait quite a while in between pours. Overall, not a great experience. It will do if all you want is a glass of wine, but not if you're going for the whole "as advertised" experience.
First and foremost I would like to thank you for visiting our Laguna Beach Wine Tasting Lounge. We certainly appreciate you taking the time to leave a detailed review. As the General Manager of this location, I welcome any and all feedback. I notice that most of your displeasure is in regards to our snack selection. In a normal, not post-pandemic world, our shelves would be fully stocked and ready. Unfortunately as everything opens up at once, (which as a business we are THRILLED about), our suppliers are very much behind. Feel free to call our distributor rep to confirm. It is not as simple as "go to the market and restock", but I certainly appreciate the suggestion and will keep that in mind. We are a wine tasting lounge first and foremost, so I am certainly sorry our snack selection took away from your wine experience. As for the size of our popcorn flight and price..just as you mentioned, it was a sample..therefore will be small. We have plenty of bags of popcorn should you have enjoyed it and wanted to take your own yummy bag home! Our popcorn is all air popped by hand and made special with our own olive oils and special seasoning. This good-stuff isn't mass produced..therefore the pricing reflects that. As for the feedback of your WINE tasting experience, the very reason you came, I apologize our Wine Ambassador wasn't as quick as needed to keep wine in your glass. I see you dined with us on Mother's Day, which I'm sure you understand was a very busy day for us. We have a fairly new team and for many, it was their first holiday experience with us. So while it may not have been lightning quick, I can assure you there is no one who CARES more than my team. We try our hardest to remember what pour everyone is on, but sometimes it slips our mind. I apologize if that was an inconvenience, but remembering over 30 guests flights can sometimes be tough. I am certainly glad you enjoyed the live music and our atmosphere. I would love to invite you back to try our "stupid-good" wine again and give us another chance, but should you decide not to, I understand. We only wish you the best!
I brought my mother here for mother's day and we had a wonderful time! Shane was very helpful and also the blonde lady who works there (can't remember her name). Such a lovely atmosphere with artwork everywhere and there was a live musician. We also got their flavored popcorn to have with our wine and it was so delicious that we bought some to take home. All of their wines were really tasty and they give you a notecard to take notes about each wine. Can't wait to come back!
