“Great service, excellent food, delightful meal!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We celebrated our wedding anniversary here. Our server, Adrienne, was great...friendly but not intrusive, explained the menu thoroughly and answered all questions. It's fun to see food and drinks delivered to nearby tables...very interesting presentation! Our food was excellent. My husband's rib eye was tender and flavorful, and my halibut was very good. The food was not covered in sauces. The vegetables were fresh and perfectly steamed. The scalloped potatoes were decadent and delicious. Because it was our anniversary, the restuarant provided a signature butter cake for dessert...oh, my. It was worth every calorie. Our meal was pricey, but it was delicious, we had leftovers to take to work the next day, and the service was outstanding. It was a lovely place to celebrate our special occasion!

“Excellent food and accommodating service”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We came here as part of a large group but everyone ordered off the menu. The portions are huge and many are sharable if you are not starving - the chopped salad, for example, was easily enough for two. For one person it was too large for a starter course. The cocktail shrimp were the largest I have seen (3 shrimp to a pound) - and very good. Many had the Chilean Sea bass - they can prepare it several ways - I had it grilled and it was excellent. The main course protein does not come with anything so we ordered some sides. The broccoli and green beans were both properly cooked and crunchy - the brussels sprouts were well seasoned and grilled. The lobster mashed potatoes were also a favorite of many. Although I did not have dessert everyone who did said they were fantastic - maybe next time. The service was very attentive and accommodating. My one complaint is that it was really too loud in the restaurant and the live music (which seemed like a very talented group) merely added to the noise and frenetic pace.

“Great time over looking the beach”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Had a great dinner there last week. I don't know Newport Beach well but truly enjoyed the atmosphere and food here. Bar was very friendly and chatty, then dinner was really good. All the while looking out over the Pacific Ocean. Proably shouldnt mention that Kobe came in and sat down for dinner next to us. But it was very cool, everyone pretended not to notice.

“Wonderful dining experience”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Excellent food, impeccable service and priced accordingly. The money paid for a meal here is not only matched by the food, but the attention received by the staff from the moment you walk through the door. Plan on $100 per person. Plan on sharing the sides, as they are plentiful. Great tip from previous review, you can park by Trader Joe's and save on valet if you feel the need to save a few bucks. My husband and I shared the scallop appetizer, very good. He ordered the NY strip-excellent and I had the Lobster tails - yum. We shared an order of roasted brussel sprouts. We topped it off by sharing a piece of Chocolate Sin cake - complimentary birthday dessert. Our server -Robert - even sang Happy Birthday and didn't hesitate to take a photo of us when requested. This was a delightful food/dining experience with a wonderful ocean view that we will remember for years to come!
