I agree with most of the other posts regarding the Bungalow. We are long time patrons and have always enjoyed fine service and great meals. The menu has changed over the last month and some favorites we and other friends always enjoyed have been eliminated. Chicken penne pasta and lamb chops lollipops to name a few. The meat selections of... More

All the locals come here. The service is personal, but atmosphere cozy and the dishes some classic and some modern are all perfectly prepared. No wonder it is hard to get a reservation.

The Bungalow is one of those quiet and comfortable places to go for a romantic evening or to celebrate an occasion. We love the decor and cozy booths. Food is always superb and nice wine list to pick from. Specialty veal chop is an amazing treat as well as their great seafood choices.

Get away from the loud music and over-crowed table placement of most restaurants around town. Perfect place to go for date-night dinner! Romantic, quiet, great food and drinks. You can actually carry on a here conversation without shouting! "Family friendly" for your older children who can appreciate fine dining -DO NOT take your noisy young children, PLEASE!

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.

Thank Cathy O
