Great Food

We had made a reservation for fathers day for 9 people 2 days in advance, when we went there on Sunday they had no record of our reservation, but they were nice to accomodate us with 15-20 minutes delay. As a started the grilled artichokes we ordered was great especially with their special dip... read more

I've been here multiple times in the past several years, mostly as a meeting spot for business lunches or dinners. It's an easy location to find and it is clean and upbeat inside. I've tried most of the most popular main items on the menu and they all share three characteristics. 1. The food is fresh and tasty. 2. The... More

We were with a large group of friends on July 3rd. The service was terrific. The staff friendly and on top of everything. Unfortunately we ordered the ribs. Burned and lacking meat. both of us who ordered this dish had to send it back. The second plate was cooked better, still hardly any meat on the bones. I left hungry.... More

Had lunch here with the family. Got in just before the rush. Reservations would be strongly encouraged for here. The place was beautiful with indoor and outdoor seating. Everything was very upscale. All the staff was top notch and we never wanted for anything at our table. They all assisted each other and it shows a great deal that they... More

The wait is long but worth it. This was a very nice restaurant. We chose to eat inside but they have nice areas outside with a fire pit that looked inviting. The food was amazing and the service was prompt. Dressed up and enjoyed the night.

The food is delicious, especially their artichokes for an appetizer. Fun bar with very nice and friendly bartenders. There is always a great crowd that comes in. The wait staff is also very friendly and competent.

this restaurant is a busy place. Nicely laid out and spacious. Drawback they can't move tables together so maximum 6 unless you book the next separate table. Other drawback is seating is a table with a partial booth and chairs. So people sitting in the chairs can only look at the diner in front of them and the booth behind... More

Typically when you are a tourist you, you find yourself in those types of areas, like it or not. So, when it comes to restaurants in Newport Beach, likely you find yourself dining seaside. Do yourself a favor and take the road that leads away from beach and eat in town! My two personal favorites are right next to each... More

Everything done right. Terrific location, wonderful decor and ambience, excellent service, and top drawer food. Every morsel was spot on. Will return next time we are in the area. Lucky people who live within the vicinity.

We live nearby and I often take out-of-town guests there for a special California treat. Their outdoor area has a few large fire pits with about 10 lounge seats surrounding it. Only downside outside is that sometimes the cigar smokers take over one or two of the pits.
