Diner Reviews
  • "Good restaurant for groups or families. Noisy. High energy. Good selection of fish."
    Dined on 8/20/2014
  • "We were out exploring the Newport Beach area & wanted to eat informally but still eat really good food. We had been recommended The Cannery, & were really pleased to discover on Open Table they had availability for our party of six. We realised when we arrived that this had been a happy coincidence as it was so busy. It's as the name suggests in an old Cannery, so it enjoys being accessible by boats and they offer a tender service but if you were driving there is parking available. The decor is sympathetic to the buildings heritage with loads of references to its past without looking tacky, it's really a gem. The food was faultless, with a great choice. The wine list was comprehensive & good value. The service was fantastic!"

  • "My family and I have had great meals at the Cannery in the past, even on Christmas Eve. This time the service was very slow and we heard more than one table ask about their server. The dinner was so-so, but definitely not worth $200. We live locally and probably won't be back in the future."

  • "I gave the same review on Yelp as my overall experience was good. The food was excellent as usual as I had the bouillabaisse for dinner and Creme Brulle for dessert, which they did not have on menu, but did on special request. I typically go a few times a year for Happy Hour, so the place is not a huge surprise, and only once a year for dinner as it is pricey."

  • "We have enjoyed the Cannery in the past but stay away on Sat nights. The fish was dry, noise loud, service poor and fumes from the boats awful."

  • "The food was a little better the last time we were there."

  • "We stopped in here for a romantic dinner for our anniversary. We requested a patio table to see the water and it provided an excellent ambiance for dinner. My wife had the halibut and I had the filet. Both came out perfect. To top the meal off we enjoyed a complimentary chocolate molten cake complete with an anniversary sign for us. Great food, excellent service and a perfect romantic atmosphere."

  • "I made a special trip to the Cannery during the afternoon to request an outside table. When I got there they told me that an outside table was not possible because a large party had just came in. The Drinks came after appetizers and just before maincourse. First they were not what was ordered but they finally got it right. The shrimp cocktail was soggy like they had just been thawed. Then they delivered someone else's order to our table. We asked for the dressing on the side for the salads and this did not happen. The main courses were OK but by that time no one cared and the the topic of conversation at the table was how poor everything was. For a $250 bill this is not a restaurant I would return to. They never took the menus too!"

  • "My wife and I celebrated our wedding reception at the Cannery 21 years ago and I surprised her by taking her here this night. She absolutely was in heaven. Food and service was excellent."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "We had a great experience. The food was absolutely wonderful. I had the John Dory and my partner had the salmon and both were well prepared, flavorful, and piping hot. Dessert was equally as good. Paula, our server, was fun and humorous. Couldn't have asked for a better evening."

  • "Excellent food, great outdoor dining, overall really good, will defintely be going back."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "we had a fairly large party and JESSICA took great care of us! the room and service (a shout out to the bus guys - thank you) were great but the food overall is "fair" - a bit unimaginative for Newport Beach (considering the competition among restaurants) but service makes up for a lot. Also, why no Rombauer chardonnay by the full bottle but only half bottles?"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "The service was great! However, I had my sister in from NY and while the seafood is usually good, the $40+ filet was really bad. I could have grilled an $8 steak myself that tasted better and of higher quality."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "I needed a special occasion place to take out-of-town guests, that would highlight our lovely Southern California coast. A friend recommended The Cannery. I can't believe we had never heard of it before! We had a fantastic dinner, start to finish. I will definitely be going back."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "A must go to! Great food, excellent service. If you have not been back in a while, you should. Summer time is the best time!"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Exceptional food in a great setting followed by friendly, attentive service made for a memorable night for my family."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "I have been to the Cannery many many times & it remains one of our favorite spots for dinner & brunch. This visit was just not great. The ahi poke came out extremely salty & we sent it back. Our server was great & offered to bring us something else. We ordered the crab cake (one of our favorites) but it just wasn't as flavorful as usual. The real issue for us was that our entrees took an additional 25 minutes after we finished our salads. Our server was really nice & pleasant but must have been busy because it was hard to find him after we had finished our entrees. We felt a little forgotten about towards the end. We will be back, maybe it was an off night for the staff."

  • "The Cannery is always our last stop before heading home from vacation. It is a tradition my wife and I have enjoyed for more than 10 years. The Cannery is a romantic dining experience. With respect to the food and wait staff, they get 11's on a 1-10 scale for their attention to detail, and the variety on the menu, especially the seafood items which are very fresh. The wait staff is very attentive and you don't have to signal to get refills to your drinks (even if it is just water). Often times, they do it without you even knowing they were at the table. That part is awesome. I highly recommend The Cannery and if you want a waterside table, you do need to reserve way in advance as everyone wants those tables."

  • "The service was great! We enjoyed our lunch at The Cannery! The valet person, reservationist and the waitress were all great!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Once or twice a year my sister and I look forward to coming to the Cannery as part of our Beach experience. We were surprised at the change in menu and the poor seating experience. We ended up with the Fish Tacos, which were really good, but missed the old menu which featured more lunch friendly fish options. We will definitely be back, as we love the atmosphere and the area."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Good for a night out with a group of friends, vibrant, good food and the fish is fresh. Nice setting overlooking the water if you can get a patio table."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The fish (swordfish for me and halibut for her) was of high quality and cooked perfectly. Sauces and presentation were high end but not overpowering. Raw oysters were excellent as well but had to ask for the horseradish. Service and ambiance were top notch. My date left her sweater at the table and the restaurant called me as I was halfway home to let us know that we could pick it up the next day. I will definitely return!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We got there at 6pm on a Friday evening. It was great. By 7, we could not hear each other from across the table, as the ROAR was just deafening. We like this place, but we will make sure that future dinners are on a Sunday through Thursday."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We had a wonderful time as always good food and service"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Been a fan of the Cannery since the 70's. It has managed to stay a favorite through changes in ownership, closures & economic challenges. Always been our not to miss spot in Newport."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We have been trying to use our open table gift certificate many times. Given to us from a satisfied client but Cannery told us that it was only for a holiday special and they didn't participate in holiday specials. Where was this written on the certificate we received...nowhere! Open table has a great concept, unfortunatley it is very difficult to use. We are sitting here with a worthless $100 certificate. There is no expiration date on the certificate nor any restrictions so why did Cannery not take it and why would open table not make restrictions more clear. Cannery is a great restaurant however not happy about their decision not to take certificate.....why did we not know this...why did open table not make it specific."

  • "The Cannery Seafood Restaurant has been a fixture at the end of the Lido Marina Village for decades. This is no small feat in a town known for its gastronomic prowess. The reason why the Cannery is still there is because it has terrific food, a great location and amazing service. It also continually reinvents itself and its menu to stay ahead of the competition. Although Sunday brunch is our favorite time to go there, you won't go wrong with any meal - or just cocktails and appetizers upstairs."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "I always enjoy my experience at The Cannery. I was with three other people. I had the Surf & Turf which was a half lobster and a flitet mignon. The lobster was delicious and the filet was cooked to perfection. The others in my party had sushi; a ribeye; and salmon. They were all equally satisfied with their meal. I plan to go to The Cannery again soon. Not only is the food excellent, but the atmosphere is very nice. The service was great."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The food was terrible! They need a rehaul on their menu or a new chef!"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Have been here many times, especially for business, and had good meals. . This time was a big miss. Poor and inattentive service, brought out the wrong oysters (turns out they ran out of what we ordered and did not ask if OK to replace. The replacements were awful). Sushi rolls very mediocre. Light burned out over our table so ate in total darkness. Not sure I'll try again when there are so many other choices in the area."

  • "Service could have been better but overall it was great!"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Terrible experience. My wife and I had dined there dozens of time prior but not in the past 5 years. They did not have our reservations, they treated us like we were lying about having one. And like we did not belong there. This was a birthday dinner for my wife and she left teared up and humiliated we never even sat down for dinner. Never again, I would not only never recommend I will go out of my way to tell people what a bunch of jerks they have working there."

  • "Great experience. Excellent menu and wine list. Food and service was excellent. Will be going back again."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The restaurant has really good seafood (“OLD MAN AND THE SEAFOOD BROCHETTE” was better than the ahi tuna). The "Heaven's Gate" from the bar was fantastic. I will be ordering that again. Definitely get there before 5pm as this place fills fast. Also, there is a $5 valet for car parking."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We dine here often and the food and service are always consistently good. The chef has changed the menu with the seasons, which is very nice. We had the piquillo peppers and the sashimi roulade for appetizers and the swordfish and lobster risotto for entrees. We had a lovely Pinot Noir which we brought with us. Corcage is minimal."
