This place was amazing! The food was great, and the atmosphere was even better! The guy who was singing and playing the guitar was phenomenal and his music selection was really good. Service was also wonderful!

The food was excellent, and Monika, our server, is both a true professional and a delight to interact with. They were also very accommodating when we requested to come earlier than our reservation time. Of course, we understand that outcome may not have been possible given different circumstances, but the friendliness with which our request was received was all that could be expected.

My wife and I enjoyed the Valentine's Day Special - very friendly and first class service from all their employees - very nice and quiet this time of year around the Newport Beach Pier area.

Went here to take my wife out for her birthday. Everything was good until we went to leave. We spent $200. After we walked out the doorman came after us and asked to search our doggie bag stating that the manager said we had taken a plate/charger. The charger wouldn’t have fit in the bag in any event. After he confirmed no bag We then went back into the restaurant to confront the manager. The manager and server stated that they had no idea what the door man was talking about. This was embarrassing and ruined the whole birthday celebration.

Food was fantastic but our waiter was awful. Though the food was fantastic probably would never go back.

Best steak ever! Great restaurant. The only downside was we were seated in the dining room in the bar area. It was very noisy and difficult to carry on a conversation.

We make 21 Oceanfront our "go to" place for special occassions! In the 20 years we have never been disappointed!! The service is top shelf, along with the food, cocktails, wine list and the view. Gracious and welcoming staff make 21 Oceanfront our premier dining spot even with the hour drive.

I took my nephew from TX here for dinner. It is one of his and my favorite restaurants. The Prime ribeye steak were excellent, and the service was friendly and efficient.

The restaurant is very nice and sits on a fine location near the pier in Newport Beach. The food portions were horrendously small, not worth the price, but everything did taste great though! If it was more reasonably priced or portioned, this would be a great place to go.

The food and service was excellent. The Sea Bass was perfectly cooked. Parking was easy with the Valet service.

Went for Newport Beach Restaurant Week. Service could be more drink menu for 10 minutes. Also, steak on prix fixe menu was too chewy, Very nice ambiance, great comfy leather booths.

GM and was very pleasant. Downhill from there. Service was virtually non existent, food was decent but could have been hotter. Chocolate soufflé was cold and chewy. Server never came back to ask us if we wanted another bottle of wine, coffee or a cocktail so we left. It’s a shame because is a rally cool place but I doubt we’ll go back.

We had a wonderful dinner, the food was delicious. There were a couple issues for me. The restaurant is elegant and expensive. With that I excpect high quality food, courteous and excellent service and while we had that I ordered the 12 oz lobster way that was 12 oz. I did however pass another table and their lobster tail was huge. There were also a couple tables with small screaming children and I do mean screaming. This isn’t a I dont love kids thing, I do and have 4 of my own and I wouldn’t allow that in a restaurant but why in the world would a restaurant of this caliber allow that. Kind of ruined our special evening. Would I go there again? Yes but I would have later dinner reservation and would ask to not be near children. Soufflés are a must!

This is a restaurant with long established roots in Newport. The food is near perfect and the service is well above any other. You’re going to pay for those. My wife and I enjoyed every minute. My wife had filet with lobster tail and I had the salmon. We decided to split a chocolate soufflé with Mexican coffees for dessert. Overall the best meal we’ve had in Newport Beach.
