I moved to Newport Beach and heard numerous locals say how nice it was to eat at the Bungalow. Though the bread came out hot (finally) and the butter soft, from there it went down hill. It's not bad - so if you want an overpriced average meal - then have at it. If you dressed up a Ruby's diner, then voila - you have the Bungalow.

Great surf and turf and smart service - the wine is unbelievably expensive - cocktails are cheaper - booths are fun to sit in

Or do go, if you like to be accosted by vodka peddlers. Trying to enjoy a peaceful dinner ($80 for two) and suddenly felt like the Tijuana shooter girls had arrived. REALLY? This is Corona del Mar at its finest? I think NOT! Spoke with the manager who, sorry was downstairs, and couldn't care less that these 'girls' were bothering all his patrons. Caesar salad was good but grilled chicken penne had no flavor. A huge disappointment. Plenty of other places within walking distance where your money will be much better spent...

Excellent steaks and service! They even have half-bottles of their popular wines from their list.

If you are looking for a great, lively newport bar - this is one to try. The drinks are good and usually plenty of locals toasting the days activities or the fact that it's over. I gave it a 3 because at times the service can be spotty due to the number of people and the appetizers are not consistent. THe restaurant adjacent to the bar is good, but dated (big cushion curved booths) and although the service in there is much better, your food experience may vary.
