Diner Reviews
  • "Typical hotel dining room. Nothing wrong with the food or service, just nothing exciting or any special reason to visit. A wedding reception in the next room provided too much noisy music. Waiter was very good but had to multi-task, being both the greeter and maitre d', as well as waiter for the entire room. Guests had to wait awhile at the podium when he was not in the room."

  • "Great ambience, pre-fixed dinner needs a steak selection"

  • "Terrible service, waitress never came back. Took 30 min to get bread (as hard as rocks, and completely in edible) then took another 30-45 to get the check (which we asked for 3 times). Will never go back, will never recommend to anyone. Horrible"

  • "Found this resturant during Newport Beach's resturant week celebration. It is in a hotel, however, the atmosphere is bright and clean. The wait staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was very good, especially the dipping sauce that comes with the bread sticks and cheese crackers. I would recommend this resturant, and we are planning on returning. Very nice place for lunch."

  • "When we booked it appeared the restaurant had a sophisticated feel. We found an open space, extremely noisy and reminded me of a moderate hotel chain. The condiments reminded me of Courtyard hotels. We felt we were in a cheap hotel. After seeing what others ordered, we decided it was not reflective of the website. We found availability at a local favorite and left. We mentioned this to the valet, they seem experienced this before and did not charge us even though we did not validate. I would never eat at this restaurant. Most local restaurants were sold out New Year's Eve, approximately 70% of the dining room was open. This was reflective of the food and ambience. I have never been more disappointed in a restaurant in my life."

  • "The Christmas Buffet at Bambu was wonderful. Buffet with all kinds of shellfish and fish, salads, veggies - just things for everyone. Then you also order your entree from the menu. It was a completely enjoyable afternoon. They did not rush you at all."

  • "It was a last minute find for a Christmas Day luncheon. It also turned out to be out our very best Christmas luncheon venue. The price was great and the food choices/selection was excellent. The staff made sure that the buffet table was always stocked with food. Our server was attentive to our needs, all twelve of us. We certainly will be back for our Christmas Day family luncheon. We also found out that the hotel restaurant served Easter, Mothers Day and Thanksgiving feast this year. We will be sure to consider Bambu in 2014."

  • "My waiter was a pleasant chap, swift with service, attentive, but not over-bearing, as it should be. The restaurant is noisy due to the elevated ceilings, but my entrée was cooked to perfection and I enjoyed it. I also enjoyed their "house" sparkling water. Very good, a nice "eco-friendly" choice. Thanks to the chef and his staff; I really liked the healthy emphasis."

  • "It is a great place for a healthy lunch, provided you do not mind the noisy room. Halibut was excellent, and was worth the return trip. The cappuccino parfait was a tiny bit of indulgence...and I was glad I did."

  • "I love their healthy approach to dining. They offer some vegan, some gluten-free, and other specialized menus. They were very accommodating, felt they valued our patronage."
