“Best Happy Hour and Sushi”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

They did remove the free clam chowder at happy hour, but the sushi here is amazing! Beautiful restaurant bar upstairs with a view of the water and an inside fire pit.

“Setting is the best part of the visit”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

food and service were very good. Not great, but no negative surprises. This was my second visit. The view is nice but you can get that in plenty of places in newport beach. Prices are a bit stiff.

“A Nice Nod to the Old Water Front”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We celebrated a birthday here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Big open space with plenty of choices for ambiance from big tables for a large family to small for just 4 as in our case. Lots going on in the decor, reminiscent of its old Cannery roots. Fine food, handy valet parking, and afterward take a stroll around the piers.

“Great formula broken”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This used to be one of my favorite places. I am a local and I have visited the Cannery for 15 years. In recent years, my wife and I plus several guest would go to the Cannery every Friday. Just recently the chef retired and a new chef came on board. The new chef changed the entire menu. Many great items we enjoyed (e.g. the pear salad, or clams dish) have disappeared. We had a hard time finding things we liked. I tried the mushroom soup and there was nothing special about it. It could have come as well from a can. The prices have also steadily risen to the point they make no sense anymore. Say 6 clams for $12, or a glass of wine for $17. I am sad to say we left our comments with the waitress and we are now looking for another restaurant to spend our Fridays enjoying diverse foods that are reasonably priced.
