My husband and I went with
My husband and I went with a gift card, and to celebrate his birthday. We weren't sure what to expect, and were pleasantly fulfilled. The restaurant has a very old school Italian feeling. There is an older "Newport money" crowd that seems to frequent the establishment, yet there was no stuffy attitude! The service was very pleasant and the food was delicious! Also the people watching was a gem. Its a bit pricey but well worth it. We even had leftovers that were equally delectable the following day!

Was excited to try out Rothschild
Was excited to try out Rothschild because fe restaurants serve caviar in the OC, maybe they should take note! That said pastas were sensational. I haven't looked forward to eating leftovers in some time. Also desserts were delicious. Service was polished, but friendlly. Not far from my house will def. be back. P.s. don't order the caviar had a weird acidic taste and no bellinis :(

A wonderful place for cozy romantic dinners. Just terrific on all levels- service, food, ambiance, decor and noise level.

Great food and staff
We ate here 14 years ago and don't ask me why we have not been back since then.
I am so glad we did return for dinner this week, it was fantastic and the staff was
warm and friendly. Great place and we will be sure to go back soon.

I hadn't been in years. It was exactly like it was 20 years ago. Can't wait to go back.

This was our first stop at
This was our first stop at Rothschild's being new to the area. Excellent Italian food with care in the preparation served in a formal but comfortable atmosphere. There is an "old world" feel to the place but that is part of it's charm. The special salmon served with house made rigatoni and vegetables was outstanding, as was the ministrone and shrimp appitizer. We have no found our "upscale Italian" restaurant in our neighborhood. Bravo!

We came just for dessert. Everything was perfect the service was great the dessert was perfect best tiramisu in town and the house cappucino was amazing. The setting was nice the music perfect only thing I would change is to not have the heavy garlic dinners served in the front by the bar. Our nieghbors had a pasta dish and the garlic aroma was competing with our tirimisu. If we could have moved we would have.

Don't Judge by First Impression
Rothschild is a popular spot for locals of a certain age and that makes it pretty crowded. A very small bar, no waiting area ( stand outside basically ) but, they really try hard to accommodate everyone. The staff and customers are all very, very pleasant. The food was quite good and although the place was busy there was no feeling of being rushed. Our party had wine, appetizers, salads, entries, desert and cappuccinos and we all exclaimed how low the bill was for the quality and quantity of food we consumed.
I would definitely recommend Rothschild, don't be put off by its small appearance and expensive airs.

We were seated upstairs which pleased us. Four of us wanted to have a lengthy conversation without struggling to be heard. The upstairs is quieter (downstairs wasn't real noisy). The service was excellent--prompt, but not in your face. The recommendations were good, and all of our dinners were excellent.

Great Italian Experience
First time visit to this Italian restaurant. Location was very easy to find, right off PCH with valet parking in back. Great menu selection, with many homemade daily specials. Our server was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Kept our glasses filled and extremely polite. I had the pork oso buco special that was flavorful and so tender, it fell off the bone. My friend had the homemade pasta that was thick and al dente. Dessert was just as amazing!! Good selection of wines, and great experience all around.
Will definitely make this a stop on my next visit to Orange County.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
we've been dining there since 1977 and it's my favorite restaurant in Orange County. I've had them cater Christmas parties and my wife's B-day party in their private dining room which is also a wine cellar. Outstanding,doesn't get much better!!!

My favorite restaurant
I have been going to Rothschild's for over 20 years, and have never been disappointed. The service and the quality of the food is always fantastic. I highly recommend going to Rothschild's.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our first time at Rothschild's. Excellent food, service and atmosphere.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place turned out to be a gem. Was afraid because it was one of only a few restaurants that we could get a descent time on a Saturday night at short notice. The food was superb. Quaint ambiance. Would recommend!

Awsome Food/ Service
Brought 80 year old parents here for lunch. It had been several years since they have eaten here as it was a traditional lunch spot on their annual visit to Saw Dust Fest. Both Mom and Dad enjoyed their food, and service was great.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Still a great restaurant
It's been a few years since we booked dinner at Rothschild's, but it has maintained both quality and charm. The food is wonderful. I especially like the idea of their choice of potatoes, or a side of their "pasta of the day." (You can't go wrong with the latter choice.)

Great wine list, delicious
Great wine list, delicious salads, entrees and garlic bread and excellent service.

Consistent good food for 20+ years
We have been coming to Rothschild's for over 25 years and have never been disappointed. Their food is consistently good, even though you haven't been for a while. Juan, our waiter, was attentive and friendly. There were 4 of us. My husband and my friend had the short ribs (the special) and it was perfectly cooked and fell off the bone. The other gentlemen had the salmon and I had the calamari--all were done perfectly. Their pasta is the best.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and service very good. We all felt, however, that waiter kept trying to get us to order more courses than we wanted. Asked three times if we were sure we did't want appetizers. No, we did not! According to their web site, they offered a Sundy Supper which was a price fix menu for $29 for three courses. When we asked the waiter about it he read off their specials for the night and said there was no special Sunday Supper. Fine if there is not, but take it off your website.
The food was very good and we all did enjoy the evening. Pricey evening, so not sure we would go back here.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
great food, superior service
The staff are delightful and helpful in describing various dishes.It feels like old world service and most comfortable. The garlic bread is out of this world!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is as good or better as any restaurant in the Newport area. Small dining room results in sometimes cramped seating and bad sound acoustics make it difficult to hear. Wine pricing is high.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
This has been our favorite restaurant for thirty years. We moved away for twenty years but visited whenever we were in the area. We have now moved back and make our go to restaurant for those romantic date nights.

I love this restaurant and always have a delicious meal there. It's reasonably priced for the excellent food and service you get.

One of the best meals I ever had.
The service was great and the food even better.
I had the Calamari Scampi and it was tender and the sauce was just incredible.
Make sure you get the Caesar salad and some garlic toast as well.

A very nice experience
This was our first visit to Rothschild's and it won't be the last. We went for a special occasion and it met our expectations. The service was outstanding as was the food. Thank you.

table for 2 second floor
Had the filet and a salmon special. Well prepared - and presented. Great sides and wine paring.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Better than the Biggies
Great spot. Only 8-10 tables and the intimacy is what we are used to at home in S.F. The bone- in pork chop was 5 stars while the service was spot on. Don't let the name Rothchild's Italian fool you because these Rothchilds know Italian!!!
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best Restaurant in Corona del Mar
I have been frequenting Rothchilds for 35 years and I have NEVER had a bad meal or negative experience. The food is always delicious and perfectly prepared. The staff is professional and attentive without being over the top. The wine list will please anyone and there is always a manger/owner present. I cannot wait to return!

Wonderful Food and Ambience
First time at this restaurant. Always wanted to go to Rothschild's but never got around to it.....until now. The service was warm and attentive. The hostess and wait staff truly cared and wanted to make sure our party was cared for. The food was exceptional. We especially liked the Crispy Chicken and Spinach Ravioli, Lobster Ravioli, and the Vitello Rothschild's which was veal in a white wine and lemon sauce. The pasta is made on the premises and was quite delicious. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the halibut as the fresh fish. We were not rushed and were able to enjoy each portion of the meal as well as each's other company!
