Anniversary Dinner for twoHad a table for two overlooking the ocean. Great service from waitress, Monica. Food and wine were excellent. Abalone was delicious! A bit pricey for everyday dining, but definitely hits the spot for special occasions.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAgreat meal and great service.Agreat meal and great service. have been there many times and keep coming back for the obvious5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMTo be fair..My husband ordered the baseball cut of swordfish, he just didn't care for the cut, the fish was fine. My lobster tail was chewy and the flavored butter poured over it overpowered the flavor of the lobster (I didn't realize it would be poured over the tail). The caramel ice cream dessert was excellent!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen the entire staff is engaged,When the entire staff is engaged, you receive the best service possible, and such was the case when we dined there on a busy night. Definitely worth a detour offf the PCH!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!A must! I can’t say enough other than you must go. Everything was perfect!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Anniversaryswe celebrated our 3 year anniversary and I thought it was absolutely perfect. Great service and the food was savory.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect ExperienceWe loved our 21 Oceanfront dining experience. We had a table with a perfect ocean view, and dined at sunset. The food was delicious and the service was even better.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA great restaurant. We choseA great restaurant. We chose the place based on the pictures of the view of the ocean... which was very disappointing. You can see the ocean, over the street and parking lot. However, fantastic decor, wonderful servers and great food.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't beat this Marveloous PlaceThis place is on my highly recommended list. What a great spot looking out at the ocean. Service and Food was impeccable.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMVegas is impressed!!!My husband and I celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversay at 21 Oceanfront. The manager made sure we had her favorite table and the best service possible. We really loved every moment that we shared there. Not to mention the terrific crab legs and cioppino. Great atmosphere! Our booth cuddled up to the Pier, Beach and Oceanfront views. I would definately recommend this restaurant for a special occasion, party or just a great night out with friends. Hopefully, the manager and her staff will read this and know how special they made our night!
All the best

Las Vegas4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Experience EverI took my best friend for her birthday. It was our first time dining in the wine cellar as we usually sit at the bar and watch the sunset. The food is always amazing. The 3 bartendars (Big Tony, Lil Tony, and newcomer Ryan) were awesome. Our server Roberto took good care of us like we were family. He was excellent. We love this place and go back every chance we get. Thanks!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMUpscale dining with ocean viewGreat service and view of beach very nice, but does overlook parking lot in addition to beach. Interior older style, but feels very nice and well done and is "romantic". Large viewing windows.
Food very good including bread, scampi appetizer, pear salad and Chilean sea bass entree which included vegetables. Choclate cake very good.
Upscale service. Price to match.
Valet parking $44/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food!!!The food was AMAZING! Highly recommend this restaurant. Pricey, but well worth it. Just try it....you won't be disappointed.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI HAVE BEEN GOING TO THATI HAVE BEEN GOING TO THAT RESTAURANT LOCATION (SINCE IT WAS THE RITZ IN THE 70'S) AND IT IS STILL FANTASTIC...........NONE BETTER IN ALL OF ORANGE COUNTY.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial Occasion GemThe food was outstanding. The staff went out of their way to ensure that our 29th anniversary dinner was memorable and romantic. We watched the ocean sunset as we sipped complimentary champagne from our cozy booth. The wine list was very complete. Our server helped us choose a fine Cabernet to compliment our dinner. We will definitely dine here again.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMordinary foodI loved ambience, view was beautiful. Service fabulous. Drinks were good. Good place for cocktail Menu limited. E.g. 1 chicken dish. 1 pasta dish No main salad dish. Such as Crab Louie salad. Women usually like this. Otherwise all fis/ steak Food was good but was ordinary. Chicken Milanese. Served with 1 scoop rice, steamed vegetable No sauce, no garnish, nothing special or unique. Had steak & French fries. Good, but ordinary. Had blueberry cheesecake. Again very plain. Pasta seafood meal was good. Appetizers complimentary was nice idea. But again very ordinary Small roll with cream cheese spread..3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe most amazing sea bassThe most amazing sea bass I've ever tasted. Slightly crisp on the outside, exploded when I sliced though it with my fork. Wow!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAll a neighborhood bistro should beWe should have realized that we were going to like this place when we pulled up and noted that the valet parking was clearly at a subsidized price ($4.00!) We had a cocktail in the crowded but friendly bar - complete with vocalist - and watched the street scene and beautiful sunset. As it was a Sunday evening (we had no idea) we were able to order a great Steak Frites with salad and dessert at a very reasonable "prix fixe" price - so we splurged on the 50% off wine!! The owner (or possibly manager) was very attentive as was our server. Only issue was undercooked steak, but even though still returned a bit rare the second time it was a very tasty cut of meat.
Newport Beachers are lucky to have this calm oasis so close to the Pier!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and didnt forgetGreat service and didnt forget my request on the website reservation.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentI took my wife here for our 12th year anniversary. It was an excellent experience. The food was amazing and our server was great. The Clam Chowder was the best I've ever had, and I always order clam chowder, so that's saying a lot. Our entrees were also top notch. We didn't realize they came with sides so we ordered a side of Potatoes Au Gratin to share and boy were we glad we made that mistake. I will come here instead of The Capital Grille anytime.....first visit, but certainly not the last.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had reservations for 7:45We had reservations for 7:45 however the manager Tony took us in early and sat us. My only complaint would be that the mashed potatoes were luke warm and not hot. The rest of the food was hot and very very good. The service was very good and the ambiance was outstanding.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
