The interior (and exterior) are unchanged. the menu is a little different ( for example, Glubdubdrip soup was not on the menu--perhaps at dinner?) Service was good as always, Food was excellent!

We had a very good experience at Gulliver's. Went there for dinner, five adults and one child, and everyone's food was consistently good. They're known for their prime rib, which is a generous portion, tender and very favorable. They even have a mini portion on the children's menu. Two of us ordered the filet mignon and one ordered the chicken... More

We decided at the last minute to go out for a steak dinner. I heard Gulliver's have some great food. It was late at night and the staff was cleaning up getting ready to close, but they took us in. To my surprise they served up a really good meal for being so close to closing. My prime rib was... More

When we ate here last century, their prime focus was the prime rib; with good reason. Their chefs made the best we ever tasted. When you added sides like the creamed corn and creamed spinach, you have achieved epicurean ecstasy. Our fears that the expanded menu meant reduced quality proved groundless. When we asked our server if she could round... More

I find eating at the bar to have a bit better service than the dining room. Good food either way. I don't go a lot because of price. The decorations are amazing and even better during Halloween and Yule.

This place is a Newport Beach icon. It has been here for more years that I care to remember. It's a British/Pub-themed restaurant, complete with Wench servers! I ordered the escargot for an appetizer. When the gentleman brought me the dish, he told me twice not to touch the plate as it was very hot. Of course, I did touch... More

I had a delicious lunch at Gulliver's. I love prime rib so I had the lunch cut with mashed potatoes and mixed veggies. It was plentiful and the service was attentive. The restaurant is across the street from the John Wayne airport so it's convenient for before/after flight meals or to meet someone that has a layover at the airport.... More

No vegetarian choice though I was able to get a sandwich - Not so great sandwich but the staff is very good. Not at all crowded on a weekday though we had made reservations. Being a vegetarian, will not go again. Looked good for family, very traditional and cozy restaurant. Cost-wise, it is on little higher side but not that... More

I have been coming to this restaurant for over forty years and have never been disappointed in the quality of the food, excellence of the service and value for what you get. My wife and I met up with my sister and niece for a wonderful dinner. We enjoyed a steak, prime rib, chateaubriand and a salad dish together with... More
