All the right ingredients.

Near by for business for a few days and this was recommended for dinner. My friend and I were elated with most everything. The atmosphere is phenomenal, inside and out. Rustic, elegant and artsy all in one. I am going to tell it as our night occurred but want to point out the experience in the... read more

Happy hour is from 4-6:30 with discounts on drinks and 1/2 price on many appetizers and sushi items. The atmosphere is wonderful and the food was excellent. I recommend the cannery sushi, very tasty and spicy.

While visiting Newport Beach my wife and I had dinner at The Cannery and were delighted. We had a wonderful table at the end of the room overlooking the water. Waiter recommend the peach , tomato and feta salad for a started and it was a definite standout. Of course we had to add fresh oysters and they too were... More

I have been coming to this restaurant since I was a kid and it has been through many changes over the years. The one thing that has been consistent is how inconsistent it is. One visit will be good service and good food and the next will be poor service and average food. We come here about 4 or 5... More

This is the best seafood place in Orange County, and it's in an actual cannery! There aren't too many historic buildings in the county, but this is one of them. How cool to be able to enjoy a fine meal in it (and see the water, as well). A memorable experience.

We were not starving so my sister and I stumbled on this place and split the fish taco's. We were delighted to discover the wealth of baseball history and the actual cannery building history too. The inside has wonderful glass sculptures of jellyfish and sea creatures. We sat outside and enjoyed the marvelous view of the harbor. Weather was terrific,... More

OMG, the food, the service, the drinks: all amazing. Fish was tender and flavorful, appetizer and dessert special should not be passed up. I recommend ordering different dishes and pass around for delighting the taste buds.

Wonderful lunch by the water. So glad we found this spot. Great salads, and half price wine list during the week at lunch. Good service, too. Highly recommend.

A great place to have a romantic evening or meet with friends. Food is delicious. Key Lime pie was one of the best I'd had.

On holiday with my kids and one of our last nights we went to the Cannery. We all liked it a lot. The ambiance of the place is perfect and so is the service. I had the clam chowder to start which was excellent and then I had the black cod with crispy sweetbreads. The wine list is good as... More
