Dined here recently for business. I keep forgetting this restaurant exists with so many choices in the area. They have great food and wine selection. The crab cakes and sea bass are exceptional. I love the location. Plenty of parking and easy to get in/out.

We love this restaurant, we looking forward to coming here whenever we're in Newport Beach. The service is top-notch, the food is always great, and the atmosphere is fun. This last visit, Anna, was our server, and she is excellent--gracious, professional, friendly, and helpful.
