We stopped in at the bar after a nice dinner elsewhere. There was nice relaxing live music being played and the bartender made drinks worthy of ordering additional rounds. Come here and enjoy cocktails in a friendly relaxing atmosphere.

Clearly this restaurant is from yesteryear. But I found it to be a well-kept establishment with a lot of character. Additionally, we had very good service & our food was delicious. Our server was very informative and obviously knew the menu and the location and it's history quite well. On this visit there were three of us, one had chicken... More

An evening at Nieuport 17 is not just dinner out....it is a true dining experience. The ambiance, coupled with the excellent food and service make this a place to go for special occasions. While it is on the pricey side, in my opinion, you do get what you pay for.

This restaurant has been in business for many years and serves as a premier restaurant in Tustin. The bar is separate from the dining room and offers free quality entertainment even if you do not wish to eat. This restaurant is used by locals for special events and it does not disappoint.

Dining would best describe Nieuport 17. The combination of fantastically prepared food, atmosphere, and great service by beautiful waitresses provides and experience in dinning that is hard to find. Of course if you like photos of old and newer fighter planes signed by their pilots and if you like a quiet piano bar where you can enjoy the best of... More

This is one of my "go to" places for dining with clients and staff. They have the best bread. The have really great soup, including the french onion soup. My guests have enjoyed the French dip, club sandwich, cobb salad, both steaks, salmon and sea bass. They have a really good side salad as well. Their food is always fresh... More

This was our first time at Nieuport 17 (Named for a French Fighter Plane). It was Thanksgiving Day and they offered a special/limited menu. The ambiance was that of an old French Hunting Lodge with a vintage aviation theme. It is located in a very quaint French Village styled upscale strip center. The service was well paced, friendly, and attentive.... More

Great service! Ask for Isabella - she's awesome! Great food! Great Happy Hour! Great memorabilia all around the place! You'll feel like you took a step back in time when great food and great service weren't so hard to find!
