We love this restaurant, we looking forward to coming here whenever we're in Newport Beach. The service is top-notch, the food is always great, and the atmosphere is fun. This last visit, Anna, was our server, and she is excellent--gracious, professional, friendly, and helpful.

It's really dark when you walk in here but your eyes gradually get used to it. It's basically a steakhouse that has as much fish as steak on the menu. The food is nothing special. I started with oysters, which seemed fresh and tasty but...More
