One of the best meals I have ever had. Food was prepared perfect. Is pricey but is now my favorite place for special occasions. Service was excellent also.

This was a night out for our anniversary. We had been here 3 years ago and was also where my husband proposed to me. This is a very romantic place and the Inn that is connected is also a delight. We enjoyed every minute of it.

21 Oceanfront is simply one of the most beautiful restaurants we have ever dined in. Our server (Monique?) was excellent and provided us with well-timed yet unobtrusive service.

We began with the Salmon Poke' Stack which I found flavorful and delicious but was a little too fishy for my wife. this may well have been due to the addition of large salmon caviar on top of the stack. Still, I thought it was a nicely constructed appetizer and the home-made taro chips were a delightful accompaniment.

Next, we each had a cup of lobster bisque. Quite frankly this was the only part of the meal that was a bit disappointing. As a bisque it was fine but there was no finesse involved either in it's preparation or presentation. It was simply bisque with no accoutrements and it was rather plain and boring - especially when comparing it to everything else.

For entree's I had the abalone appetizer and my wife had the Alaskan King Crab Legs. My wife's (crab) legs were huge, luscious, and perfectly steamed, and my abalone was sautéed to perfection. Both came with nice accompaniments. For dessert, the Grand Marnier soufflé was perfection.

I was excited to try this old gem of Newport beach, but then we arrived.

I could not believe the way the other diners were dressed. From sweats, to rip jeans, to barely dressed! I thought we were going for a fine dining experience....we were wrong!

PS...the food was very marginal, but the wait staff was doing everything they could to improve the situation, they really were great!

If you want to to have a conversation during dinner or even hear your waiter, avoid being seated in the bar. While the music is not bad, the volume was annoying. Our waiter did forget one of our salads but comped one of our desserts. The lobster bisque was really floury. The surpise of the night was the 8 bucks we were charged for a single prawn to even out the number in our shrimp cocktail. Why the shrimp cocktail came with an odd number seemed strange to us. The valets did a great job considering the tight spaces they are working with.
