Olamendi's in Laguna or Dana Point? or Avila's El Ranchito? or??

Any recommendations on where to go tonight for sit-down Mexican with a nice atmosphere, but not too fancy as we have young kids with us, along with their out-of-town grandparents. Went to Olamendi's years ago, don't know the different locations and which is best? We are staying at the Marriott Newport Coast.

Thanks so much for any help.

Early Bird Dinners in Palm Desert? Good breakfast near Marriott?

Former foodie, now has twin toddlers, so we have to eat at the ridiculous hour of 5:30pm when we go out. Will be in Palm Desert at Marriott Desert Springs for a week and was wondering if there are any restaurants that offer early bird dinners that are tasty. Or any other family-friendly restaurant recs. Children are well-behaved. Good breakfast suggestions welcomed, too.
