A word from Alley Restaurant & Bar
For over 22 years, the Alley Restaurant and Bar in Newport Beach is the local's favorite for a dining destination. Specializing in only the best on-site cuts of beef like Filet Mignon and New Zealand Rack of Lamb. And don't forget the freshest seafood like Chilean Sea bass and our famous Sanddabs. The Alley serves as a casual, yet elegant dining experience and by late night as a high energy "Cheers" bar of Newport Beach. Come join us at the Alley and become part of the family!Continued

  • "I had a business dinner on St. Patrick's Day, so I knew that the Alley would be packed, but even so our service was superb, the filet mignon was perfectly done. Great place to get business done in an informal setting!"

  • "Food was solid. $10 bottomless mimosas can't be beat."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Food was fantastic but the servers seemed like they didn't want to be at work. Made the mistake of ordering dessert "to go" and it sat on the shelf by the kitchen for over 19 mins and was crushed when we got it home. This place is more of a bar than a restaurant"

  • "Service is great here - sand dabs very good Always enjoy when we go"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The food was good and service was excellent. I loved the cheesy potatoes. The bottomless champagne was a plus but a little too sweet. The twist of a California benedict was excellent as the bacon crisp and the avocado firm."

  • "We had great steaks. The waitress was nice and the food was good. It was a loud in there but it was fine, I had my kids with me and no one was bothered by them, nor were they bothered by anyone else. We will definitely go back there for the filet."

  • "Filet dinner was $30. Not cheap, but it included 2 sides. AND it was a good sized chunk o meat and it was tender and wonderful ! Fun local place with good food. And you don't have to dress up or be snobby. I really like this place and hope it stays this way forever."

  • "I wish we could have spent more time here but we were on our way to the Boat parade and had to eat and run but the employees here went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and rushed our order and boxed it up for us quickly. This is such a charming restaurant, small and cozy and you are made to feel truly welcome."

  • "Great food, generous drinks, friendly service and an energetic atmosphere. I ordered the Beef Stroganoff. It was delicious as always. Previously I've ordered filet mignon, prime rib dinner or prime rib sandwich. Always well prepared and delicious. Compliments to the chef. A special thanks to our servers Sarah and Vanda and our busboy Cruz for their excellent and attentive level of service. I'll be returning soon."
