Editorial reviews from the web (2)

Michael Kang, chef-owner of this popular Laguna Beach restaurant, is an inventive chef with a loyal, well-heeled clientele. The art-filled postmodern space has a sophisticated buzz. Exuberantly flavored and spiced food (sometimes perhaps a touch too exuberant) is beautifully presented on oversized plates. The whole-braised catfish is a perennial favorite. Daily specials are always worth a try;...

Innovative, bountiful Cal-Chinese cuisine and funky industrial decor, just steps from the beach.

Try their whole fried catfish -- to die for! 10-15 minute drive from house.

Frommer's Review of Five Feet Frommers

While Five Feet may no longer break culinary ground, the kitchen still combines the best in California cuisine with Asian technique and ingredients. The restaurant has a minimalist, almost-industrial decor...

OUT OF BUISNESS. But was really good before that

I first visited the Five Feet Restaurant when Michael Kang opened a branch at the Anaheim Marriott Suites Hotel. When that restaurant closed I visited the Laguna Beach restaurant, the original…

They've gone out of business. A loss for Laguna Beach.

Business description (5)

Five Feet Restaurant the can be found at Glenneyre St 328. The following is offered: Restaurants: French. The entry is present with us since Sep 9, 2010 and was last updated on Nov 14, 2013. In Laguna Beach there are 2 other Restaurants: French . An overview can be found here.

Michael Kang is the owner and Executive Chef of the 5' Restaurant in Laguna Beach. Since 1985 Kang has served Orange County residents the best in non-traditional Chinese-French cuisine, creating masterful dishes that are unconventional to both the palate and the eye. Throughout the years, Kang has masterfully blended the gourmet cuisine of Mediterranean Europe with traditional Chinese fare and...

This restaurant takes its name from the fact that it rests five feet above sea level. Chef Michael Kang serves gorgeous plates of fine, creative, California and French-inspired Chinese cuisine. High ceilings, beautiful artwork, and interesting people are what you will find inside. Without reservations you will be in for a long wait, but the wait is worth it. The catfish is famous and delicious...

Weathered brick walls and an industrial-themed, art-prominent decor provide an interesting counterpoint to the Eastern cuisine at this iconoclastic restaurant. Head chef Michael Kang's featured entrees include catfish with tomato ginger citrus sauce, Kung Pao chicken with dry chiles and peanuts, and a dish aptly called "Hot Sisters" – braised North Sea lotte, Canadian lobster, and Caribbean...

Others have attempted to mimic this restaurant's innovative blend of Chinese and French cooking styles, but Five Feet remains the leader of the pack. Among the standout dishes is the house catfish. The setting is pure Laguna: exposed ceiling, open kitchen, high noise level, and brick walls hung with works by local artists. AE, D, DC, MC, V. No lunch.

Where to Sit

Groups larger than five should sit at the round table in the back. If you're looking for a quieter atmosphere, sit on the outdoor patio.

Know Before You Go

Leave time for window-shopping and strolling along the shore; Five Feet is located just off the main street in Laguna Village and one block from the beach.
