    Came here to celebrate my fiance's birthday. It was our first time and it really blew away our expectations. From the start to end, we received great service and our server was very prompt with everything. The food was great ! My fiance ordered the steak and lobster and I ordered the swordfish. It was delicious !!!! Our server did such an amazing job making sure we had a great dining service. Definitely coming back.

    My mom came to visit me and I wanted to take her to a nice dinner. I was recommended the Cannery and it definitely lived up to everyone's reviews. The service was outstanding, the wine list was amazing, and the food was fantastic. Ended up being the perfect place to catch a drink at the bar before our table was ready. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a date spot or a girls night!

    I took a special person to lunch for the first time alone and had a great time. The service was excellent and the food could not have been better. Because of the quiet surroundings, we were able to talk and get to know each other. After 4.5 hours we noticed the lunch crowd had left and happy hour was going to start. I'm glad I pick the cannery.

    When we got there we did not have to wait to long. The waitress was very knowledgeable friendly. They left us alone to have a romantic dinner. The appetizer was great along with the food and thy surprised us with a special dessert. The only bad was is that it was real cold and they did not keep our Ice tea full.

    Been a while since we have been here and now I know why. Service was slow and inattentive by our waiter who was more interested in larger parties and friends. Sorry but just because there are only 2 of us is no reason to be put in corners by the kitchen and ignored by staff. We made a reservation ahead of time, bought expensive dishes and ordered an expensive wine! Over $200 for two is not cheap! I know it is our choice on what we eat and drink, but point is we were not cheap customers, and were treated as such. Getting quite tired of these so called "hip" restaurants that treat people over 50 like we cannot be bothered with. Get a grip people we hate corners,like views just like the "hip" crowd and probably have more money to spend.

    I went on Sunday for lunch and found an extremely limited menu. While the restaurant does have a robust menu for evening dining, I didn't want eggs at 1 p.m. and was sorry that I had selected it. Additionally, I purchased a gift card for a friend via the online site and have yet to receive it. I took my receipt to the restaurant and they would not do anything except offer me to purchase a second gift card. I will never do this again!!

    My husband and I were visiting Newport Beach and had dinner at The Cannery. We arrived early and went upstairs to have a drink in the lounge. We loved the lounge, they have a sushi bar, large bar and open seating. The menu looked great and the appetizers we saw going out looked really good. The hostess told us to come back down at the time of our reservation. It would have been nice of them to come and get us when our table was ready as there were loads of hostesses. We ate downstairs and had a delicious meal. I had the John Dory, which was really outstanding. The service was very good, the waitress was pleasant, informative and attentive but not intrusive. We loved the atmosphere and would definitely go back.

    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 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!

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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!
