Nestled in the heart of Corona Del Mar lies the Bungalow. This charming Craftsman style restaurant is minutes from the heart of Newport Beach's premier business and shopping center, Fasion Island, yet it feels miles apart. Rich tones, dark woods, and private booths have made The Bungalow a dining favorite for residents and visitors alike, known for serving PRIME steaks, excellent seafood and magnificent martinis. We also feature an award winning wine list and proudly pour over twenty premium wines by the glass and over 220 premium bottled wines from our wine cellar.

Food was very good as was our server...but the $16 drinks were over the top. We are experienced diners at home and abroad . Comments were we will not come here again, ridiculous price for a single cocktail . Bone in rib eye for $69 was also way overpriced in our opinion.

Excellent choice in CDM, with attentive service and a wide range of entree choices. We went on Wednesday night, with a special three-course bbq menu which was delicious and reasonably priced. There outside patio has good social distancing, and is quiet. We'll be back.

Great place for a little romantic dinner. They have a prime rib special on Sunday’s which was great. I asked for medium rare but it was more rare so just FYI. It’s a 3 course for a great price!! My husband had the filet mignon It was fabulous!!

We had a wonderful meal here and the staff was so kind and helpful. I had the sea bass which was THE BEST EVER! My husband had the prime rib and was totally pleased. I wasn’t crazy about the blood orange marguerita but that was not a problem! Definitely we will return!

We went to the Bungalow and were sat in the covered parking lot area. It was nice, but did not provide the ambiance of the regular outdoor seating area. There was a large group of young adults being very loud, almost obnoxious sitting behind us. That made it difficult to enjoy the first portions of our meal as we could not even hear each other across the table. However, that aside, the waitstaff was spectacular and attentive. Our glasses were always full. The Manager came over to see how things were and was friendly and welcoming. We both took advantage of the OC Restaurant Week special and had the Lobster. It was some of the best lobster I have ever had. The blood orange margarita was really tasty as well. I would definitely come back.

Was looking to go spend some money on my lady and found this place. Very close to the beaches so we did beaches things before and after. The food was fantastic, I mean the filet was on another level in terms of quality and flavor. My lady enjoy her salad and salmon a lot as well so overall not too bad of an experience. If you’re looking for a quality meal there’s no better place than this one.

Food Fantastic.
Service Exceptional.
Eating in a parking lot. Acceptable for the times.
Getting a surprise $9.99 fee if I wanted to use my credit card. Unacceptable at a high-end restaurant like Bungalow.

Had dinner during restaurant week. Good selection fair value for a 3 course meal. Service excellent. Only negative was it was pretty noisy in the outside patio (tent) location. Would recommend and will go again.

Restaurant week menu was a nice value. Delicious corn chowder, steak and sea bass both excellent. Very good cheesecake. Only small problem was the first creme brûlée that was served had no brittle crust. Our great waiter promptly replaced it.
COVID dining outside had little ambiance but was safe.

We were seated outside, at our request. It was right next to valet parking at the rear of the restaurant. The food was excellent and the service was great. Best salad, Bone in Ribeye steak delicious, Miso Sea Bass was the best we ever had and Beef Ribs were fabulous !. Desserts were very good too ! This is a great restaurant, highly recommend.

We were there during Restaurant Week on a Weds night so they also had their weekly specials for Weds which included baby back ribs..or so the menu said....but whatever we got was not baby back ribs and it was not tender and easy to eat. Certainly the meat was not falling off the bones, which is what I would have expected for the price and location. The sides were poorly done and we wondered if the baked beans were just from a can they were so unappetizing. The desserts were delicious though. All in all, the cost of the meal was definitely not worth what we paid and not what we expected in quality and taste Perhaps other entrees would be better, but we are not inclined to return.

Bungalow is one of our very favorite places, and it's been too long since we've been there!
We celebrated our 30th anniversary and it was indeed a special night. The food was spectacular and the service team were very attentive. We are very lucky to have this gem in our area.

Ollie soon to be seven-year-old was so enthusiastic about the slider hamburgers and french fries. The blackened salmon was exceptional, The Chilean Seabass was out of this world. They did a great job of creating an outdoor restaurant in these strange times. We will be back soon!
