Got to the restaurant @ 10:45 and not a soul to be found. Took over 30 min. to get our breakfast served. I ordered the egg combo plate, eggs over easy I got over medium and bread that was so hard you could play hockey with it. My wife ordered eggs bennie and she told me it was good. The... More

This is the second time that we have visited this restaurant which is off the beaten path in Corona del Mar. We had a great chicken skewer. The staff, the bartender and everyone did a great job. well worth it

Music was so loud and annoying it made our poorly prepared food taste even worse. Steak, which was an evening special was tough and overcooked. Halibut, another special was very good. Dinner conversation was impossible due to the noise level of the horrible music. If we had not ordered, we would have left. Service was poor. The waitress did not... More

appetizer was not so good. Dinner was average, very loud and the waitress had no personality. Had a groupon and the waitress did not know what she was doing. finally I just paid the bill even though it was wrong. guess if thats how they want to do business they don't need me. lots of really good restaurants in this...

Many skewered dishes but also a wide variety of other offerings. All seem to be done quite well with an artistic touch. Baked salmon was excellent as was the steak flat bread. Another nice touch: great, warm rolls with a perfect pesto. Fairly comprehensive wine list. Moderately attentive service.

I rarely use Groupons- but otherwise I would have never found this place. My question is- why does a restaurant even have a Groupon promotion if they are not going to use it to try and win over a potential frequent customer? Our waitress tried to take care of us, but she was overwhelmed. Then there are a couple people... More

My family and I visit Newport beach at the beginning of every summer. Each year we make a point to try at least one new restaurant (because we have our usual favorites). THIS PLACE WAS AMAZING! I found a coupon on groupon that gave us some discounted entrees so figured we didnt have much to lose. We walked into the... More

The Owner/Manager walks around, unprofessionally, in sandals and looks disheveled, unshaven, fat and dirty. Management is always top down and this is proof of that axiom. The food is marginal to poor, on a very good day. It felt as if we were being served food by Bedouins. I didn't realize it would be an "ethnic" dining experience direct from... More

We returned again this year and found it as warm,friendly and just a great place to hang out. Coming from England one of the great joys of... More

Loud, poor service, ignored request (which was possible) for a quieter table; we were seated next to a table for 40. Food was adequate but not worth the effort in this area. Would not return.
