Tommy Bahama's Island Grille - Newport Beach
Very enjoyableFrom the Hostess to the Servers and the Waiters everyone was friendly, professional and efficient. I told the Hostess we had Reservations and the rest of our party hadn’t arrived; she checked and made a point of offering us a table, a seat in the Bar or asked if wanted to peruse the Retail Store. After ogling over the merchandise in the Store we sat at the Bar with a cocktail and a friendly greeting from the Bar Staff. The wait Staff attended to us and anticipated the timing of the approach correctly, Devin and rest of the serving staff were especially efficient. Each person (including the floor manager) did their best to make our evening at Tommy Bahama’s memorable.
And the food was Wonderful!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMService could have been aService could have been a little bit better. Waiter only checked on us twice throughout the entire meal time.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointsI wanted to bring a friend from NYC to a neighborhood restaurant
That is always great and have a varied menu. She loved it!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious FoodDelicious - ordered crab cakes, lobster grilled cheese, Ahi tuna kale salad and pulled pork. All was delicious. Waiter recommended Ahi salad as his favorite and we were pleased with his suggestion. Lobster grilled cheese was good but could have used a little more lobster ;o). Got a glass of sangria and could have easily drank an entire pitcher. Kid-friendly atmosphere.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMgood food and service butgood food and service but noisey, hard to have a conversaton.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGirls Night Out!Perfect place for girls night out! the cocktails were great, the food was scrumptious and the activity in the bar was lively. Great night out for a group!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayMade reservation for brunch on Mother's Day and booked two weeks in advance. Unfortunately we were sat in the bar next to the live music and main walk way and kitchen. Would recommend calling ahead and requesting table further back in the restaurant.. Also, stick with the normal menu. French toast was just OK. Waiter was friendly.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMServer Neil was outstanding!!!Mother's Day at Tommy Bahama's was one of the best I have had in my 40 years of motherhood. Very kid friendly and accommodating for all the ages of our family including little ones- 2 in high chairs and 1 six year old plus 6 adults. Neil our server was very cheerful and radiated hospitality in the old fashion way. All liked the variety of food options. Everyone enjoyed these culinary delights. We have had many special occasion celebrations at Tommy Bahama's and find their casual but very classic tempo outstanding for making memorable moments to cherish! Definitely worth a repeat performance.

We love Tommy Bahamas for years. It is considered as our neighborhood gem. Recently I had an event there for almost 220 people and everyone raved about the drinks, the appetizer and I even hosted a sit down dinner afterwards for 21 guests and everyone loved their choice of entrees. It is one of my favorite restaurants in Newport.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite place for a casualOur favorite place for a casual dine in Newport Beach!

I always go there for the steak salad, so delicious!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster BrunchBrunch is not normally served but for Easter, they created a special, limited menu. We very much enjoyed being first in to the restaurant and having such a beautiful environment. Great drinks, exceptional service - they went out of the way to make it a great morning for us. My only criticism is that the menu was so limited that it didn't meet the wish list of all at my table so I'd love to return next time we have a family gathering, but will check the menu first to make sure that my guests will be able to find something that appeals to them.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friend and I had a delightfulMy friend and I had a delightful lunch--she enjoyed the goat cheese appetizer and Harvest salad, and I had their special salad (one of the best ever!) of mustard greens, kale, chicken . . . every bite was delicious! And then? Key Lime Pie of course!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time. ItWe had a great time. It was the first time for my 3 guests. There was just enough background music that it was pleasant and didn't interfere with our lively conversation. The food was just a cut above as I expected. The service was great, and helpful with recommendations. I bring my Mother from time to time for lunch. That is what made me think Tommy's would be a great place to celebrate the promotions’ for my friends at work. Just a perfect Sunday afternoon with friends.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful lunch to thankHad a wonderful lunch to thank the staff of my Organization there.
At the evening, I hosted a 200 guests private event at their PCH room plus the back patio. The appetizers were amazing and the Mojitos were yummy and had a very Successful event plus a private dinner for 21 after the Event.
Next time I shall book the event with Open Table since the Restaurant didn't even give me a coupon for future dining and I spent tons of money for one day at Tommy Bahamas, LOL.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for a late lunch,We went for a late lunch, it was very relaxing.

The halibut and chicken dishes were delicious. Planning to return. Thank you.3/7/2013 12:00:00 AMa nice lunch for Rstaurant WeekI took visiting relatives for the the Restaurant Week, and we enjoyed the 3 course meal at a great price. Each dish was small in scale, but everyone left full and with a smile. The service was slow, but the waitress was attentive so I am guessing it was the kitchen that backed-up the service. Luckily we were not in a hurry. I would happily return.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was really good, serviceFood was really good, service was fair. Would go back.2/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOn this visit, my brotherOn this visit, my brother had a restricted diet and it was wonderful that the server and chef pitched in to make him a meal that he could eat. He was a happy camper! The filet mignon was absolutely tender and grilled to perfection (black and bleu for me). I'm not a huge fan of filet mignon (ribeye being my favorite cut) and hadn't had a filet mignon in about 15 years, this has to be the best filet mignon I've ever had. I also their brussels sprouts for the mashed potatoes. I love their brussels sprouts! Don't forget to leave room for the Pina Colada Cake. It is to die for!1/28/2013 12:00:00 AMDungeness Crab Cakes wereDungeness Crab Cakes were awesome! They were mostly crab meat with very little filler. Seared Ahi Tuna & Kale Salad was refreshing and delicious! The tuna was perfectly seared and the kale was flavorful and vibrant. Creekstone Farms Filet Mignon came with a red wine demi-glace and grilled to a perfect medium rare. The meat was tender and juicy. Wagyu New York Steak & Jumbo Prawns (second time ordering it and cooked to perfection this time) was perfectly cooked to very rare with soft, tender mouth feel and wonderful beefy flavor. The shrimp were perfectly cooked, sweet with a tender snap to them. Roasted brussels sprouts were great with flavors from bacon, caramelized onion, and jalapenos to take them up a notch. Piña Colada Cake is my fav!1/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen here many times and usuallyBeen here many times and usually have a wonderful meal. This time the service was a little off. Our server seems preoccupied with something else. She left before taking all of our orders for appetizers. We also had to keep asking her for refills on our drinks and kept forgetting to bring garlic aioli for our fries. Both steaks were overcooked. My mom ate hers (asked for medium-rare and came out medium). My mom was happy with the flavor and decided to keep hers. I like my steaks rare (black and blue) and mine was medium-rare to medium. I had to send it back. The second steak was cooked perfectly just how I like it. Other than that, the rest of the food was great from the appetizers to dessert.1/16/2013 12:00:00 AMlooking forward to a return visitDue to a private party, the restaurant was too noisy for us to stay long. But we loved that the staff was so solicitus in trying to accommodate us. We shal;l return on a quieter night for the full experience.1/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBig group and service wasBig group and service was outstanding , they handled our grandchildren with class , it is no wonder that all four of our grandchildren always want to go back, ribs and slaw were really good , you will have a great time12/27/2012 12:00:00 AMTasty food, attentive andTasty food, attentive and fast service, great ambiance.
