Really expected more from this stylish, waterfront restaurant in Newport Beach. The restaurant is right off PCH not far from Fashion Island. It has an upscale feel to it, casual but elegant interior. Menu is a total bust. Lunch featured common offerings of sliders, club sandwiches, chicken Caesar salad, etc. Lunch entrees included fish and chips, macaroni and cheese, and grilled salmon. Build-a-burger menu included a form where you could specify the type of burger (beef, chicken, veggie) with choices of cheese, condiments, toppings. Yawn. Nothing interesting or enticing on the menu. Decent wine list. My club sandwich was good, but not special and my husband's prime rib sandwich was nothing more than sliced beef with au jus. Didn't have the rich taste of prime rib; more like a typical French dip. My advice is have a cocktail in the bar, enjoy the view, and go elsewhere for food.

Fun restaurant with great views of harbour and people watching inside. Good food and service. A place to be seen for sure- much wealth about inside and out! Mainly valet parking but theres an area next door to a Mexican restaurant that shares a parking lot. Great place for lunch if you want to avoid the evening crowd

I really always like going here. It is the place to see the beautiful people of Orange County.

The bar is a U shape, so you face people on the other side....could be better if it were a walk around bar, but oh well....

The bar is small and fills up fast, so get there before 10 to sit down.

Good cocktails, fairly reasonably priced. I have never had a rude server, people are friendly here.

Wow, prepare to be impressed. Mostly a younger customer base. Lots of money in this crowd, lots of good looking mature women trolling for rich guys. Ferraris, Jaguars, Bentleys in the parking lot. Great food, including a build-your-own custom burger menu. Good wines. Good prices. Good view of the harbor if you can take your eyes off the people-watching. Valet parking is free but necessary due to small parking lot. Easy access off PCH at Bayside Drive between Linda Isle and Lido Isle, a spectacular place to while away a Sunday afternoon. Interesting menu, not expensive, dressy-casual.
