Diner Reviews
  • "I made a reservation at Pop for a birthday celebration and was not disappointed. The champagne was sparking and delicious, the ambiance delightful, and the service friendly and knowledgeable. It was a wonderful night out!"

  • "This is my favorite spot in Old Town, and I'm pleased to say that, once again, my experience was top notch. The service, food, wine selection - everything is always impeccable at POP. That's why I regularly take my out-of-town friends to dine there when they first arrive. I want their time in Southern California to start off with, well, a pop! I can't think of a more appropriate place."

  • "We had a lovely time at Pop. It's a beautiful little restaurant. The food was delicious- my favorite item was the truffle mac and cheese, and my wife just loved the flatbread. We sampled several different champagne cocktails and they were really fun. The server (Libby) was absolutely fantastic."

  • "Was there celebrating a birthday. We tried the $55 "date night" menu with an appetizer, 3 sides, two entrees, and dessert. It was of an exceptional value! We really enjoyed all the food (except one of the sides...the soup was a little bit salty to us) and the wonderful service! Will definitely visit again and try other things."

  • "We went there for dinner on Saturday night and had the "Champagne chicken" and "seared scallops" + the wine and champagne flights. That was really really good! Both chicken and scallops were very well cooked and tender. The service and the atmosphere were great! We'll definitely come back!"

  • "Good wine selection, nice ambiance, particularly for a GNO. Wished we made it in time for happy hour, since the prices does make me categorize it under "just for special occasions." If I were to return again, it definitely have to be during happy hour. It's also a great place for a romantic evening. There are intimate spots where you and your date can gaze into each other eyes, as if you were the only two people in the room. It was our first time there, and we had a pleasant experience."

  • "POP is a very romantic and scenic place to have a nice dinner date with a significant other. Large groups are a no no for this place due to its small size and small tables. The ambiance is that of fine dining, and the dimly lit lights help you feel in touch with your date. The food was amazing, and not too overwhelmingly overpriced. The cheese plate and tuna/avocado appetizer are must tries. Wine list is not too large, but as their name goes, they are a champagne and dessert bar, so give the bubbly a go."

  • "I was not impressed with the food. I'm a foodie so I know good food. And on top of the fact that the food was lack-luster, my server charged my debit card twice."

  • "Attentive service, great wine list. Scallops cooked to perfection. Shrimp in balsamic reduction. ..delicious. honestly, I was really saving myself for dessert. Surprisingly the desert wasn't as amazing as I thought it would be compared to the primary meal. I had the Irish Car Bomb which was just ok. My friend had the crepes and those were delicious. We got the bananas foster version."

  • "I always have a great experience at POP, and this time was no exception; in fact, it was even better! Our party of four gals was seated at the coveted window table, with no prior request, and that was very nice. Our waiter, Robert, was engaging, charming, and attentive. He's a real asset to the restaurant. We ordered appetizers and all were very tasty, as was the delicious bubbly. Thanks, POP, I can't wait to return!"

  • "Very consistent. Awesome desserts. Friendly staff."

  • "We went to POP to celebrate a friends birthday. We chose the tasting menu, and selected a flight of champagne, but the price for the food & service is not worth it. Next time I go there it will just be for drinks & dessert - like the name suggests."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "This is my second time here and the food is just terrific. Salmon with a mustard wine sauce was Cooked just perfect. We ordered 4 or 5 small Plates off the happy hour menu and it was all prepared so well. Nice booths with the champagne Bottles under glass."

  • "Food was just ok, nothing special. Will not be going back."
    Dined on 1/28/2014
  • "Bad service and not what our group expected. We all felt like we were bothering the staff being there and the restaurant was pretty much empty except for our party of 9. When I received a follow up call about my reservation I was told its a very busy night and we would need to purchase a package which I declined. Overall the entire experience was not good."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "My time at Pop Champagne Bar was fantastic. Their drinks are AMAZING and reasonably priced, especially if you are there during happy hour. The salmon and the tomato bruschetta were very delicious. I can't wait to go back."
    Dined on 1/2/2014
  • "I like the decor, atmosphere and location. Beware the unique descriptions of the appetizers. Most we're disappointing. They usually are named something sounding familiar but have none of the appeal of the familiar dish. Example, the fondue is not fondue at all but some kind of pasty spread. The pork skins are not the crunchy goodness we know but pieces of barely cooked, fatty pork. Another thing, everything is served with extremely crispy, hard, dusty bread. They need to find other accompaniments to some of these appetizers. My suggestion, stick with what the restaurant name implies are its strengths. The crime brûlée is among the best you will taste and is one of my favorites. Same for the Seasonal pavlova."

  • "Went out for a roomate Christmas dinner. The ambiance was amazing and well as the service. They sat us in a little corner table next to the window. Perfect set up for our dinner."
    Dined on 12/19/2013
  • "Took my team here to celebrate hard work on a long project. The appetizers and deserts were good, and the happy hour cocktails fun. The prices on the full bottles of champagne were so-so (reasonable I guess by restaurant markup standards) but it was a shame they didn't have more champagnes available on a tasting basis."

  • "Limited items on menu, need more lighter and healthier options. Enjoyed the tuna tartar."
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "My husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary at Pop. We decided to enjoy dessert along with some mimosas. We had made it just in time for a round of happy hour priced drinks. Our server was friendly and attentive. The ambiance was perfect for a romantic end to out night. The bacon maple crepe was to die for, something I'll dream about until we have it again. The only low point to the night is when our check arrived. The food and drinks are a bit overpriced for the proportion of food given. But you are paying for ambiance and unique food items of menu, as well as an extensive drink selection. We will be back for another special occasion dinner."

  • "Had a great time celebrating my sisters' Birthday! She had a great time too! That was my second time and food was delicious had the champagne chicken yummy!! Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Atmosphere great, food great! THe waitress very friendly and helpful. Check it out!"

  • "Good for happy hour. Mediocre service. Liked it overall better in the past and had referred many people there. If paid with your credit card review it carefully as they overcharged me."

  • "We went as a party of six for the Sunday night entertainment. We arrived at 6, in time to order Happy Hour specials before music started at 7. Good food at reasonable prices. The entertainment , Michael Ryan and friends, was superb."

  • "I went to hear the Michael Ryan Trio play. Great music. Pop is fun and noisy so it was a little hard to hear the extraordinay band. But it was fun and I would go again with or without the band."

  • "Came here for after dinner dessert for a friends birthday. The hostess and waitress were both so friendly and attentive. The restaurant itself is very cute, we all just said we wish the lights were dimmed and some music was playing in the background. Other than that, the desserts were amazing! Can't wait to come back."
    Dined on 10/25/2013
  • "Fabulous place, small and intimate with an elegant decor whthout pricing to match. The menu is small, but well balanced. The Tuna Tarter is served in a canning jar and though listed with jalepeno pepper, you would never know it. It is one of the best around and easily a dish for two. The sliders can be ordered protien style or with bread and are more than ample without the bread. This is one of the few places that not only has excellent French fries, but they are piping hot when served. The drink menu is unique and focused on bubbly wines, there are reasonably priced flights of champagnes as well as an array of cocktails, the Belini is excellent and the Belini Noir is a nice twist. The salads are huge. Highly recommended."

  • "I've been meaning to come here for ages & finally made it! I fell in love immediately, it's so gorgeous! The hostess was great, super friendly & I started with a Bellini while I waited for my friend to join me. We started out fine with one server but after what could have been an easily remedied situation turned into major drama with her having a horrendous attitude we switched servers and got a fantastic guy! The food was really tasty, we had an assortment of appetizers so it was a great way to sample lots of delicious things, the chicken bites were a stand out as were the shrimp. Other than the snarky girl it was a great night & the manager was very gracious when we discussed the situation with him so we will absolutely be back soon!"
