“Great Food, Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

I really enjoyed the Bungalow Restaurant! It is a quiet place, very elegant, but in a casual way. The service was outstanding, and the food was excellent! It is a great place for a very nice, quiet dinner. I was here with friends I hadn't seen in a while, and we were able talk and enjoy a great meal without a lot of distractions. I had blackened salmon, and it was perfect. A great place, I'd highly recommend it!

“Average at Best”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

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.

“Elegant”

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

“Don't go to Bungalow!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2012

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.
