Good for a romantic dinner or for catching up with a friend

We have been going to Nieuport 17 for years. The food never disappoints, the atmosphere is lovely and it is quiet. It's a nice place for a romantic dinner or to catch up with a friend because you can actually hear the other person.

I have heard that this wonderful restaurant is closing. They have a wonderful menu and a great bar to go and listen to music. If indeed it is closing go before it is gone.

It is too bad that fine restaurants, like Nieuport 17 used to be, have begun to fade out of fashion. This once proud restaurant will be closing its' doors very soon and the guests who grace the front door for one final trip down memory lane may regret that decision. The venue is not being kept up (don't look down... More

We dined at Nieuport 17 a couple of nights ago. The menu was limited because they are closing the end of March. If you enjoyed this restaurant over the years, you may want to go once more for old time's sake.

Not being from SoCal , I don't know how this place warrants the prices they charge. While the meat was good, all the servings were tiny. They overdid the salt in many of the dishes. They must be going on reputation.

We went there to have a drink in the bar and were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere. Typically restaurant bars these days are surrounded by TV's and loud music. Nieuport 17, however, is old style dining. The bar/lounge has comfortable seating, good drinks; if I remember correctly, only one TV and during the evening live entertainment in the form of... More

I have dined at nieuport 17 for many years. My fathers favorite restaurant, it was the only place he and the family went out for dinner. Originally located on 17th street in Santa Ana, it has always been know as an elegant place to dine. The "new" location in Tustin truly expresses the aviation, world war 1 theme. It you... More

I am so tired of going to places for dinner and then being forced to listen to the music which the restaurant manager likes, or, even worse, being subjected to a television show. This lovely restaurant harkens back to an earlier day when having a supper could truly be "dining". I love it. The food is wonderful, and the waiters... More

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.
