It is our favorite restaurant in the Newport Beach area. The food is consistently excellent with a well trained staff. For my out of town visitors and business clients, The Cannery is my first choice. The restaurant itself and view, is A 1.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorableWe had outside seating which provided a view of the harbor. They had the place protected well protected from the wind, so it was perfect. I only rated the modearate noise because there were some other patrons who had to share their conversation with the rest of the restuatant. Food was great...the seafood platter was a lot of appetizer...even with 2 people sharing. Price was reasonable. They were very nice and surprised us with a complementary dessert for our anniversay...which was totally unexpected. We would definitely dine there again.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently GoodYou can always count on an excellent meal at The Cannery. It's a great place to celebrate an occasion or simply dine with friends, and the décor is fun.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI returned after a long absenceWith all the options for fine dining in Orange County and not enough vacation days to try even a small percentage of great restaurants, it had been a while since I had eaten at The Cannery. We chose it because it was highly rated and we could get reservations for the time we wanted. We were not disappointed. Dinner was excellent. My halibut dish was very satisfying. And my wedge salad was fresh, crisp and cold. Everyone else in my party thoroughly enjoyed their meal as well. I have already recommended ThevCannery to other friends and will certainly find my way back there sooner rather than later.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service and theExcellent service and the food totally what I was expecting -delicious!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful 22nd Anniversary DinnerOutstanding dinner and fantastic ambiance. The service was impeccable. Couldn't have picked a better location for our 22nd anniversary. Thank you for a great evening.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMvery pleasedWe had not been to the Cannery in a really long time and were very, very pleased with everything. The staff was amazing, kind and very attentive, the food was excellent and the place looks great. We will be back very soon - thanks for a great evening!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Job on Difficult NightThe Cannery had sold out the inside dining room to a single groyup and we were worried that it would effect the service and food. The staff did a great job in planning for this event and it in no way effected the high quality of service and the excellent food we received.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place ~Great ambiance !
nice wine list along with specialty drinks and craft beers on draft5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Value for BrunchWe've dined at The Cannery multiple times both for dinner and for brunch. This time it was for brunch and it was 3 courses -- appetizer, entree and dessert. I had the clam chowder and my husband the salmon for appetizers and for entrees we both had the prime rib with two poached eggs with holandaise and roasted potatoes and cherry tomatoes. For dessert it was a panna cotta with strawberries. All were quite good with the prime rib being somewhat tough, which was strange. We'll definitely be back for dinner and brunch.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day Brunch-A Hit!Upon arrival the Cannery staff greeted us and seated us promptly. Our seating location was spectacular and second to none-private and quaint. Our server was almost TOO quick and on top of it! Pre fixed menu was amazing I suggest the Asparagus with Proscuitto ANY time they offer it! LOVE LOVE The Cannery and Highly Recommend it for special occasions! Oh...one more thing! Valet parking-so worth the measly $4 bucks!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyedHad a great meal here the other night. Requested patio seating a few weeks ahead of time, and were seated next to kitchen, so not close to patio, but it was cold so didn't complain. Food was good. Mahi was just okay (and I LOVE fish); the chicken was the best I've ever had and also the polenta. They brought out two bday desserts (bc we were celebrating 2 bdays) and I thought that was a nice touch. The desserts were delicious too. Overall, a great meal. We will be back, but probably to order the chicken!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMYou can't really go wrongYou can't really go wrong with anything on the menu and of course our waiter had wonderful recommendations. Try the Mai Tai5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat AtmosphereVisiting friends - we made reservations at last minute and it worked out very well. Atmosphere was energetic and fun. Staff was ok. Food very good...5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMgood for two couples nightgood for two couples night out for dinner
I think if someone is hard of hearing, probably too noisy if you want to have a conversation. Otherwise, the four of us had a great time at the Cannery.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific restaurant that has it allGreat food, great service, great view makes for a wonderful evening with friends!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMy review is for Open Table.My review is for Open Table. I originally made my reservation for 5 for Sunday April 21, 2013. I had to go back and change it to 6, and I ONLY changed the number in the party, nothing else. Not niticing that it also changed the date to the next day. When I arrived at the resteurant, it was not pleasant. There is something wrong with you software if when all you change is the number in the party the date is inadvertantly changed too. Fix it please.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe met here in the middleWe met here in the middle with friends who are from the San Diego area. (We are from Los Angeles.) It was the PERFECT place for us. The food was delicious and the ambience was beautiful. It was two moms and two 10 year old girls. The girls thought the place was so cool inside and the staff was totally inviting and accepting of our mommy-daughter brunch. I saw a lot of families there. All having a great time. Food was delicious.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience!Made reservations for out of town guests and The Cannery wowed them. The food was excellent, the service impecable and we were not rushed. As always, we were treated to excellent choices from the menu, the cocktails and wine were served perfectly. Our waitress was knowledgable and professional with just the right degree of friendliness. It's a treat to dine here.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall, food and ambianceOverall, food and ambiance were fantastic. Service was good but waiter was nice but seemed preoccupied.

Waiter was excellent.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Cannery never disappointsThe Cannery never disappoints and this Easter brunch was superb. We had the clam chowder and the calamari for appetizers and for entrees the scallops on a bed of artichokes and white polenta and the salmon on a bed of sweet pea risotto. The angel food shortcake with berries and whip cream were a great ending to a fantastic brunch. The prices here are quite reasonable for a holiday meal as opposed to others where a holiday signals overpricing.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFOOD WAS OUTSTANDING, EVERYTHINGFOOD WAS OUTSTANDING, EVERYTHING WE TRIED WAS REALLY GOOD, THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed the dinner, theWe enjoyed the dinner, the waiter was great, fun evening .3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMHadn't eaten here in years,Hadn't eaten here in years, but was great, if not better than the years gone by. Sat outside and was warned by hostess of noise level due to large parties. It did not bother us. Our servers were attentive and polite. The food was excellent. Crabcakes, Mexican Coctel, Salmon and Mussels were great. Mexican dishes very spicy, but I like mine that way. Most dinners having Fish and Chips. It looked great and hope to go back to have that one day!Highly recommend!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great for Sunday brunch!We had a family Sunday brunch in the patio area. The service was great...thanks to Nicole our server. One of our party was running late but we were not hurried by the restaurant, and simply ordered appetizers and a bottle of wine until our party was complete. This was the fourth or fifth time we've dined there, and it's always enjoyable!3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe’ve been dining at The CanneryWe’ve been dining at The Cannery for several years and really enjoy the food and the ambiance. Recently they’ve changed the entire menu and there is a new chef. Of the items we tried this time around, all seemed to have issues with the sauces. The salmon Carpaccio had way too much of the Peruvian yellow pepper vinaigrette, the John Dory sauce way too much lemon in the sauce and the Skuna Bay Salmon lobster emulsion was indiscernible. We will definitely give The Cannery a second chance, but hope that there will be some alternations to the sauces. Although the restaurant was not busy at 5 pm, it took over 35 minutes just for the appetizers and our server said "hope you're not in a hurry because the kitchen is slow".1/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA very good lunch menu...Great food, great service, and a bit pricey...although the champagne was 50% off...1/1/0001 4:00:00 PMThe Cannery, Seafoodies heaven.Beautiful location and atmosphere. An amazing food experience. Seafoodies would be pleased. Would definitely go back. Too cool for theoutdoor diniing but would have loved to sit by the water. Staff were attentive and very professional. Good time was had by all.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
