Great ambiance and close to the beach for a nice walk after dinner. Order the Prime Rip and you will be satisfied. Parking next door or free on the street. Pricey but you know you are in Corona Del Mar!. Must have reservations! recommended a couple times in a year MeuterMedia

We ate here a couple of weeks ago for our anniversary, and were very disappointed. We had the appetizer of artichoke which was actually very tasty, but that was the end of tasty on that evening. We both had prime rib, my wife's on first look appeared fine, but as she started to eat she realized that only the top... More

It was the last night of OC Restaurant Week, and I was surprised that Five Crowns had a 7:45 reservation. Hmmm, why not! It was one of the Saturdays where it was raining buckets. The lot next door was full and so that meant having to circle the residential area for parking. Lucky for us, the rain had just stopped... More

I'd been to Five Crowns before, as part of a bus excursion from Torrance down to see the Pageant of the Masters. I loved the restaurant and the food was good, although the portions were very small, which is understandable given the price of the whole package. When my girlfriend and I visited Five Crowns several years later, I was... More

Be sure to go to the right when you enter the restaurant to The Side Door!! They have a small bar area but good drinks. The food was reasonably priced and yummy!

Excellent but a bit pricy. Service is excellent. Prime Rib is the best choice but fine Fish also. Too, order their "creamed corn", very ENGLISH in every way. On the South end of town--toward Laguna Beach----beautiful landscape!

My wife and I had to send our prime rib dinners back as mine was under cooked and both dinners were cold. The music was too loud and did not fit the restaurants atmosphere. Waitress was disorganized. We won't be back. This was not the Five Crowns of years ago.

This restaurant has been around for years. The food was good but this is just another typical restaurant with high prices and small portions. Honestly for $40 you should get a decent amount of food. We had the salad which was $10 and then salmon at $30. I enjoyed the meal but the salmon did not have any vegetables with... More

My boyfriend and I love the five crowns with it being a sister to Lowery's restaurant in Beverly Hills. Last night we went to dinner there and it was so romantic and cozy near the fireplace. My boyfriend had a beautiful ribeye and I had a vegetable risotto dish. The service was excellent!
