I've only been to the location at the Irvine spectrum but I do hear the one in Newport is a must. I have dined in several times but I quite often grab something to go after watching a movie at the spectrum. Love this place!!

Yes, we were seated off to the side. Does get loud so talking to the other people in your group can be somewhat difficult.
If you tell them you are celebrating a birthday, will they do anything special?

Hi....I wouldn't really say romantic as it is a very busy restaurant. It is more of a hip place. Atmosphere is nice and if you sit out on the patio, it has a beautiful view of the ocean across the highway. Hope that... More
