  • "Nice surprise. Great atomosphere, food was delicious, and staff was very attentive. Only shortdpfall would be to expand the menu some, maybe add some "small plates" for those who don't have big appetites. Overall, I would recommend it and return myself."

  • "Food and service good here, but a bit noisy for my taste."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "We've dined here many times and have always found it consistent. This visit, for some reason, the service was a bit off. The server was pleasant and seemed accommodating but for some reason didn't get things quite right. We had each asked for our cocktails prepared a certain way and were told that would be no problem. When they arrived the requests had not be followed but since we had waited a while for the drinks we took them as they were. We also requested our entrée salads with no dressing but dressing served on the side. Again we were told no problem but they arrived tossed with dressing and dressing on the side. Because of the wait we took them as is. Not major problems but if something similar happened again I'd consider it a problem."

  • "Sadly, two out three meals were ordinary. Reviewing the three meals the Steak Salad was good but both the hamburger plate and the Pork sandwich plate were non-events. I know the restaurant is capable of serving a good meal but apparently two of us chose badly. The small lobby in the restaurant was chaotic at 11:30 when restaurant opened for lunch. Staff seemed confused and poorly organized. The outside patio is inviting which is the primary reason we occasionally use the restaurant. We will return at some point for the outdoor dining experience but the restaurant is not among our top 5 choices for the area."

  • "Have been here several times for lunch. Always consistently good. Love some of their specialty dises like the Ahi Poke appetizer. They are always busy yet the service is impeccable. My Server was really great. Was always there when U needed yet left U along long enough to have a discussion at the table. Good for a quick lunch meeting. And of course it wouldn't be complete without their signature cocktails. The MaiTai being my favorite."

  • "The lobster grilled cheese sandwich is amazingly DEVINE and it is served with a heirloom tomato soup the best tomato soup I have ever had!!!!!! A must have. The mango tea was so refreshing on a hot summer night!!!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Although the food was good and the service great, the noise level was overwhelming. The live music was so loud that we had to shout at each other to be heard. Not a good place for a relaxing lunch. Glad we tried it though. At least we know it is not for us."

  • "TOMMY BAHAMAS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE RESTAURANTS. THE FOOD IS ALWAYS GREAT AND THE SERVICE ALSO!"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "We decided to eat outside on the patio on such a beautiful evening. We had planned a dinner with old friends. As the patio cleared and the sun set, the RATS began to run through the bushes just next to the table where we were eating. All four of us saw and identified the rodents. We notified the manager on duty that night and she simply said, "Oh, that's not good. Thank you for letting me know." Really? That will be our last $200 dinner with rats and mediocre food, poor service and a manager who simply isn't concerned about the health concerns."

  • "Had a great lunch at Tommy Bahama's. We had the American Kobe Burger and the Grilled Chicken Sandwich. Both were cooked to our specifications and tasted wonderful. Great service as we enjoyed our outdoor dining."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "I come here often, especially for lunch with girl friends. We always share the fish tacos as it is a plate with 3 tacos and we ask for 4 tacos and have them split it, two each. That's plenty as they are large, filled with fish, cole slaw and a delicious sauce. The service is outstanding and friendly. Noise level at lunch is quiet but in the evening with people drinking it can be a little noisy. ENJOY!"

  • "We both enjoyed ourselves thanks you we will be back"

  • "We originally booked this restaurant for a bridal shower lunch because the bride is honeymooning in Hawaii. We were a party of 5 and sat on the patio, which was noisy but okay. Our reservation was for 1:15, so I thought it would be after the lunch rush and not an issue, however, our server Danielle must have been ready to clock out before we even sat down. She rushed us through our lunch with our orders being taken around 1:40pm and the time on my bill reads 2:27pm. Remember, this is supposed to be a bridal shower luncheon. At no time did she engage with our group, did not congratulate the bride or do anything to make her lunch special in any way. The total bill for 5 of us for lunch was $274.00 -- needless to say I was disapointed!"

  • "Met friends for Friday drinks and to kickoff our weekend. Had a great table with an outside view and an excellent server. Special cocktails were interesting. The wives enjoyed the Blood Orange Margaritas. The guys stuck with the Classic Margaritas, which were very good. Live entertainment in the bar area goes not overwhelm the conversation at the dining tables. Highly recommend the Coconut Shrimp appetizer and the the Chicken Tortilla Soup as starters. Entrees, Burgers are all interesting. Give the Tacos a try as well."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Prices too high and choices not perfect. No Ranch dressing for one. Also sweet-potato fries or not good. Waitress just wants to sell dessert. Chicken sandwich is twice normal price. I'll never go back."

  • "Tommy's is one of our restaurants, whether it's date night or dining with friends. The vibe is fun and casual. The bar is lively and the drinks creative. Their fish tacos are the best!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We were seated immediately upon arrival. The wait staff, especially Alexander was very nice, attentive and helpful. Tommy Bahama does not change the menu up very often so we ordered a special sea bass offering which turned out to be not that special but OK. It could have been better for $39.00 a plate, just fish on top of sticky risotto with mushroom gravy. Hats off to the staff though, it was Mother's Day and packed but everyone was having fun. They did an outstanding job of accommodating all the families. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Food was very good. It was Mother's day and service was spotty but understandable. Nice people though. I had my birthday there last year with more guests. Service was better."

  • "It was just an off night for them, they usually rate much higher marks from us. The food was especially off -- skimpy fish taco appetizer, no meat on the artichoke, steak was over cooked from what was requested, skimpy full rack ribs and sweet potatoes, etc. I think everyone deserves a break though, and we will give it to them this time."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Went to Tommy Bahama's Island Grille in Newport Beach/CDM for a Mother's day lunch...yes a day earlier than the official Mother's Day. My mom does not like going out on Mother's day due to all of the traffic, copious quantities of people and usually mediocre service because the restaurants are so busy. Anyway, we had a great time. The food and service were excellent. Will go back again in the future."
