Overpriced and Delivered

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 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.

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.

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
