We had dinner this evening, six people, 3 adults 3 kids. Food was interesting and very fresh. The eggplant dip and hummus were great, chicken kabobs, shrimp kabobs and filet and shish kabob were excellent. All sides were really fresh and the food for the kids was fine. Service was a bit slow for a restaurant that was not even half full, but overall we had a very nice meal.

Great service, amazing food and the best music! It was like the singer/guitar player was mind reading my playlist. The port salad was really wonderful - with roasted baby beets and pistachios. For dinner I had the scallops with risotto, my husband had steak - both delicious. It's a busy, boisterous place (at least on a Friday night after 8pm) so if your looking for quiet it might not be for you. Interesting decor and artwork too.

Tucked on a side street in Corona del Mar, perhaps 60 seat spot with superior inventive menu. Yellow Curry Filet Mignon, rich, loaded with steak. What a flavor! Other entree ordered was daily fresh fish grilled to perfection on a bed of veggie risotto. Again, excellent, inventive. Split a Medittanean salad, three dollar surcharge. Variety of wines by the glass as well as extensive list. Check website as they offer music nightly and somewhat difficult to just chat. Full bar. Free parking across from the restaurant at a bank lot. If you are staying at the Marriott villas, the Port is on the concierge list.

My son and his wife got married on the beach at Corona Del Mar. Afterward, we had a reservation at the Port Restaurant and Bar. There were 10 of us for the dinner and it was outstanding. Our server, Gabi, was top-notch. She was attentive, friendly, fast and on top of our every need. The food was absolutely perfect and the bill was more than reasonable. I can't wait to go back.
