My kid brought us here for Father's Day... They were busy! We had a reservation and were seated immediately. Our server was great, she worked with us patiently... My wife & daughter had the Mahi-Mahi, both said it was very good! Grandson had the Cuban Sandwich, not like any other Cuban I'd ever seen, but the pulled pork was wonderful.... More

I don't know why someone would come to a chain like restaurant when there are so many great local places. Went there for a work event and while it's not horrible food, it's just like every other chain like restaurant.

Went to Tommy Bahama's with reasonable expectations. We have eaten at this chain in Florida and elsewhere on the eastern seaboard. U The Newport Beach location needs to decide whether it is a restaurant that serves well prepared and varied entrees or is a sandwich joint. Right now it is neither. The appetizer was decent. Actually, the appetizer selection was... More

There were no separate tables available in the bat do we sat at a long table for six. Our nice waiter came by and took our drink order. Then the hostess came over... More

Attended a school fraternity reunion dinner with a group of approximately 100 guests... Service was good considering it was a very large group... We all sat in rear patio area, very nice... Food was very good and served in a reasonable amount of time... We were served the standard "surf and turf". Great location in Fashion Island...
