Gulf Stream was a great choice for us. There were 4 of us intending to have a full dinner, but decided to do several appetizers and when done there was just no room. Everything was really perfect from the salmon appetizer, grilled artichokes (best I've had) and biscuits. We ended with a sundae Service was great. Although we had an... More

After about 5 years, I was once again in the Newport Beach area and decided to try Gulf Stream again for lunch. I'm glad I did! Being solo I grabbed a seat at the bar. Servers were attentive and prompt, even with the tail end of lunch still in high gear. My ahi tuna burger, with shoe string fries was... More

Came for dinner at this restaurant. It was packed on a wed night. A reservation is definitely recommended. The food is especially tasty. My recommendations would be: sea bass(today's special), oyster raw and the shrimp cocktail.

Met some friends for lunch at the Gulfstream. The meal was fabulous and the service suburb. I would highly recommend the crab cake salad. The crab cake was ALL CRAB with no fillers. Very tasty and the perfect lunch.

We had stopped here previously during a visit to the area for a beer on the outside patio. It was very nice so we decided to go back on this visit to Corona Del Mar. Again the intention was just for a cocktail or two but the vibe, the service, the delicious smells lead us to staying for dinner as... More

We enjoyed an excellent lunch today. Started with artichokes and a dozen oysters and then split a Salmon entree. The service and decor are also top notch. Had dinner here with ou son about a week ago and had a similar experience.

All three of the sisters love to take Mom to Gulfstream for lunch. Pleasing a wonderful 92 years young woman is not that easy and Gulfstream always delivers. She always orders the biscuits (order early as they can take 15 minutes but are so worth it) and rotates through their menu dependent on the whim of the day for her... More

My husband and I came here after not being able to get in to our first dinner choice and I was extremely impressed with everything here. We had called to make a reservation and they told us they might be able to squeeze us in. We arrived 20 minutes early and they were actually able to seat us within 10... More

Imagine my surprise when I discovered a restaurant in Newport Beach that allows cigar smoking outside in their patio area! Recently flew into SNA and had some time to kill, found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and paid them a visit. Was only here for a cigar washed down with a splash of bourbon but from the looks of the... More
