Diner Reviews
  • "I am usually wary of restaurants with "Barkers." Now I need to add another "warning" to my list. I should stay away from restaurants that actually place a sign outside that says "Fine Dining." If someone continuously tells you that the are "this" or "that", it may be a sign that they are compensating for something that they are truly not. The sign that says "Fine Dining" will now tell me that this is a place that charges too much for what they give you. The service was friendly, but the staff constantly complained about how difficult the night was. The person taking our wine order knew nothing about the wine (she had not had any of the cheap $50 bottles it in a long time). They try to Up-sell a lot."

  • "The small & quaint setting is warm & inviting. The service was exceptional. The food was very good. The minestrone was the best I've ever had. Sorry Mom ! Definitely old school but still very enjoyable."

  • "The many positive reviews did not lead us astray... The food was great - the service even better. It was quite noisy the night that we dined, but it seemed like this was not always the case. However, the dining rooms are small, so it could be noisy. Do what we did, and enjoy the people you are with and block everything else out. The food, and especially the service more than made up for a bit of energy. You MUST have the garlic bread!"

  • "Rothchild's is one of my favorite restaurants. 5 star service and food. Wine list is amazing, you can't get a bad glass of wine at Rothchild's. Happy Hour is the best kept secret in Corona del Mar/Newport Beach."

  • "This is my favorite "lunch with girlfriends" restaurant. Great for celebrating birthdays, too. The service is great and you can take your time and enjoy catching up with friends. The food is consistently delicious. The ambiance is warm, the dining room fairly intimate, and you can have a conversation without raising your voice to be heard over noise bouncing off walls and ceilings (My pet peeve about some larger restaurants.) "

  • "Made reservation solely in response to email that said they had Copper River Salmon. Called morning of reservation to confirm they had the salmon. Assured they had it. Shocked that night when told they ran out of the salmon the night before. Should have left. Food pedestrian, loud and cramped in restaurant. Won't be returning."

  • "Just an off night for an outstanding local resturant that I really like. It won't affect my return, as every resturant has their off night."

  • "This is my new favorite restaurant - especially since the Ritz closed!!! Celebrated my friend's 65th birthday with a small group a week ago and we were treated very well! Lisa was a wonderful and attentive server. Saturday I took my fiancé, who is a very picky eater for dinner, and he loved his meal and the ambiance. Alex was our server and he was fabulous! I will make sure to dine at this wonderful restaurant often!"

  • "For years Rothschild's has been my family's "go to" place for fine dining on special occasions and will remain so. The friendly staff, outstanding food and ability to accommodate special requests makes this place one of my favorites, anywhere. "

  • "I booked a date here for my Wife and I and actually requested ahead of time for a romantic table. We were placed in the middle of the room (apparently they didn't set aside a more romantic table). As such, service was just so-so, but food is good (pricey), and it's a bit small, so you're dealing with a bit of noise and less privacy. Worthwhile, but for what you're paying, I might look elsewhere. "

  • "This is a great small restaurant with terrific food. You can actually hear yourself talk. Their salmon was as good as it gets and the side of Romano pasta simply delicious."

  • "I took my friend for a birthday lunch. We were treated special from the time we walked in. We were given a warm reception. They showed us to a quaint little table. The server knew we were two chatty girls so she gave us plenty of time to visit and get caught up. When she shared about the menu, she made everything sound so inviting. Each item we ordered was spectacular. It was a perfect meal from start to finish and made for a wonderful birthday lunch."

  • "We have been to Rothschild's many times, but usually for lunch. As always, the food was wonderful, as expected. Our server, Starla, was outstanding. She knew everything there was to know about the menu and was helpful in our selection of appetizers, salads, and entrees. She was attentive to every need, yet didn't hover---perfect. We had a great time and will probably return in a week or two when we house guests staying with us."

  • "Rothschild's has always been a great place for dinner, but the last few times we've been there it as been AWESOME!! The food is always delectable, but the service is leaps above outstanding. Valentine's Day we had Starla as our wait person and this last time we were taken care of by Joaquin. Attentive, kind, caring and accommodating. The great service wasn't just limited to our servers, everyone at the restaurant had the same attitude toward their guests. We won't limit ourselves to special occasions at this restaurant."

  • "Rothschilds food and service are nice and it is the perfect spot for ladies who lunch- Nice for special occasions or for lunch with old friends. The service and the table settings are elegant, but not stuffy. With the unfortunate closing of The Ritz Restaurant nearby, Rothschilds will likely benefit. It is one of the only classically elegant lunch spots left in Corona del Mar / Newport Beach."

  • "The menu, atmosphere and service at Rothchild's restaurant are superb. We made reservations in advance and were seated at our preferred window table shortly upon arrival. The menu offers a wonderful variety of Italian offerings. We especially enjoy the pasta and veal dishes. One of my favorites is the cannelloni. The pollo fassero is wonderful. On many occasions osso bucco is available; however is sells out quickly. It is so delicious! The fried artichoke hearts are a wonderful appetizer to share with the table. Escargot and garlic bread are great too! I appreciate that the restaurant continues to offer long-time favorites in addition to nightly specials. This is a cozy, gem of a restaurant … a long-time favorite!"

  • "We have been to this restaurant before and liked it. We were so disappointed when we returned, we vowed we will never go back. We were seated upstairs which looked like a finished basement with the lights diimming throughout the evening. This was so unsettling, we mentioned it to our server. The answer was, basically, it is a very old building. Well, that doesn't mean it is safe! My husband ordered the special of the day. It was a pork chop and passable but not great. My meal was linguini with bolognese and it was ok. The entire experience was ruined because of the seating. Why, oh why do restaurants treat twosomes so poorly?"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Rothschild's is consistently good food and service without being stuffy. It has a small bar at the front which is not obtrusive on the dining rooms. Menu is continental, but with American favorites and you will always find something that sounds very good at the time. The space is more than casual but not "dressy". Very good seafood selections and meat dishes will please anyone."

  • "This title is not in the bad sense , i mean be careful not to be addicted to this resto. WOW it was great. The escargots are very , very good. Dip your bread in the sauce, miam miam ... the Lobster raviolis and the sauce , don`t miss them. I will be back...."

  • "Although Rothschild's has been around for over 30 years, the entire dining experience remains fabulous. Exquisite service, sumptuous cuisine, a terrific wine list, and a romantic atmosphere, all create the perfect evening. If you haven't dined at Rothschild's, you must put it at the top of your list!!"

  • "Was a little disappointed in the taste of the food---nothing spectacular...in fact quite boring and bland. Salmon was so so...the sauce was too sweet. Short rib although well cooked, falling off the bone but the taste is very bland---- not bursting with flavor. Dessert was ordinary...nothing special...definitely NO WOW factor there. Its a little over priced for that type of quality and taste of food that they put out. Will not recommend."

  • "Growing up in Newport I have seen many restaurants and trends come and go but Rothschild's has withstood the test of time. It has a very old world warm and cozy feel which reminds me of many quaint restaurants in Europe. Our waiter Joachin was fabulous and we had a wonderful ladies luncheon-highly recommend the Eggplant Parmesan. We will definitely be back again!"
