Came across the Bungalow driving to the beach and liked the outside dining so decided to stop in. Got a recommendation from Tanya to try the NY steak with onion strings and it was wonderful. Cooked perfect and very flavorful. Great place!!

This established Corona Del Mar restaurant drew our attention because of great reviews. We found this to be hardly the case. While we were greeted cordially by the manager and escorted to the patio, a good choice because the restaurant was somewhat cold from the air conditioning, but barely a patio, separated from the restaurant by an access route to...

If you are in the mood for an excellent steak or fine seafood this is your place. Martinis are fantastic also. A cozy atmosphere whether you dine in the patio or dining room, you will receive impeccable service. Our server Tina provided just such service the evening we dined. My wife's N.Y Strip steak was prepared as she requested and... More

Steaks are great! Best lobster I have ever had, service is impeccable, and the martini's are the best! Ask for the patio near the fireplace. Very intimate.

Frequented by locals, loved by staff, whose average employment is 18 years (as indicated by the owner). That should tell you enough, but wait, there's more!! I can't really say enough about the salmon dish. I just couldn't finish it, much as I tried! We ate in the main dining room, which is cozy and comfortable. We hear the patio... More

This is a restaurant you want to keep coming back to again and again. Lunch is especially good with tempting entrees such as Mahi Mahi with a rice salad or the French Dip sandwich with the most amazing French fries. Save room for dessert, creme brûlée with fresh raspberries or the chocolate cake with fresh cream.

There for a business dinner and had a great experience. Outstanding service, good wine list and excellent food. Don't miss the Sea Bass, it was a tasty preparation and perfectly cooked. The steak eaters also raved about their food.

My wife and I enjoyed a pleasant Tuesday evening interlude celebrating a private moment at this nice white tablecloth restaurant in what was an intimate setting allowing for easy conversation against a light murmur from other guests and tables. There was a certain "privateness" to the setting that I really appreciated. The Chilean sea bass and the beef short ribs... More
