A word from Palm Terrace Restaurant & Lounge - Island Hotel
Situated inside the Island Hotel, Newport’s only AAA 5-Diamond Hotel, lies this dining escape. At The Palm Terrace Restaurant we have a Farm to Fire approach with an influence of California Coastal Cuisine. Inspired by Executive Chef David Mand, Chef de Cuisine Roberto Hernandez and their culinary team, our dishes are prepared to be savored and shared with friends, family and colleagues. All menu items are prepared with the freshest, seasonal ingredients from local purveyors and farmers; embracing the idea of localism to strengthen our community. Dine comfortably in our oversized chairs and banquettes while Palm Terrace’s staff works together to create an atmosphere that is energetic, interactive and personal to each of their guests. After dinner, join us in the Palm Terrace Lounge for drinks, dancing, and live entertainment every Friday and Saturday night. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We went on Christmas day, not knowing on their website that it was only a fixed price menu costing $79 per person. We would not have gone had we known this. Menu was limited and expensive for what you got. Food was good but portions small. Service was poor, though the waiter was pleasant. He may have been too busy."

  • "Dinner was superb! Our Server, Ray, was the best!! We realize it was Christmas, but when making our reservation on line with OpenTable, we had no alert of the special "price fix" menu or the special cost. Our menus had no price listed on them. The food was absolutely delicious, however, it was EXTRAORDINARY SMALL portions for an EXTRAORDINARY LARGE price!!! I am a size 6 and I left hungry!"

  • "The best restaurant in Newport Beach area. It was my daughter's 30th birthday and we wanted a special, quiiet dinner. This palace was VERY SPECIAL. The rack of lamb was the best that I have ever had. Staff was superior, especially Ray."

  • "The calamari was great. Their wine by the glass was a bit pricey, so we brought our own wine and paid the $20 corkage fee. After dinner, we moved to the bar/lounge for live music - Jimmy Hopper was great...That was fantastic. Parking is comped with dinner. It was a great experience."

  • "Seated in a cavernous ballroom with sparse attendance and placed at a table too large to give a feeling of closeness, we got sufficient exercise walking to the buffet from one end of the room to the other. While the buffet had sushi, crab legs and cute petite desserts, there were no traditional pumpkin or mincemeat pies. Printed on the bill was a service charge of 23% which seemed presumptuous for a meal where we did all the walking. Having dined in the regular dining room previously, I assumed we would enjoy Thanksgiving there but only breakfast and a luncheon menu was offered there and we were taken to the ballroom for the Thanksgiving meal. It was expensive and a huge disappointment."

  • "We both love this restaurant. The food to me is delicious, as long as u order the right one & the atmosphere is just puurfect for what we needs. We asked for corner table for more privacy, and we got that just what I've expected. Can't be any better!"

  • "I had never been to this Newport Beach property, however it was very nice. The restaurant was pleasant, very goodfood and service and the ambiance was relaxing... a certain recommendation..."

  • "The large round table, comfortable chairs, lovely "succulent" decor (lots of succulent cactus in the restaurant), and the noise level in the restaurant made our dining and sharing/reminiscing time easy, comfortable and lots of fun. Our servers were spot on in their timing and willingness to let us "draw out" our dining experience. We never felt rushed. All five of us tried different breakfast dishes which we found to be very good but nothing over the top. We will return when we are in the area."

  • "Money well spent. Short rib was outstanding and so was sea bass. Service could've been a little more attentive during and post dinner. Hard to find restaurants where I don't feel like I wasted my money. You won't be disappointed here."

  • "The food was delightful! A root vegetable salad - scrumptious! Grass-fed ribeye steak, so delicious. I cannot wait until my next visit."

  • "My husband and I went to Palm Terrace to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We enjoyed every bite. We had the beet salad which was farm to table fresh and wonderful. We then had the Morrocan chicken and the short ribs. Both meals were top quality and very flavorful. The service was top notch and the ambiance iwas very pretty and serene. Drinks are a bit pricey and the skinny margarita wasn't worth the money. Overall a five star experience and perfect for a special celebration."

  • "I was expecting something more casual, I suppose due to the name bringing images of beaches. Yet this elegant restaurant was a delight. Fabulous wine by the glass, the perfect compliment for the exquisite food, perfectly cooked. I cannot wait to return."

  • "I went here for dinner with a friend and it was such a memorable experience. A server named Michael waited on us and he was very professional, had a lot of experience and polite. I knew that the restaurant was going to be remodeled in the near future and he was knowledgeable and informative. The food was just as impressive as the staff. I would highly recommend ordering the pick three dessert option at the end. It is such a great DEAL and finishes off the dinner with a nice touch."

  • "Right from the start, everything about our evening at the Palm Terrace was wonderful. My husband and I liked the well-appointed room with its soft lighting, comfortable seating and lovely table setting. Our waiter was very pleasant and professional; his timing when serving us, just right. We received our entrees on heated plates and the food was outstanding! Monday evening's promotional prices meant great savings, too. It was an all-together memorable dining experience."
