Good food and friendly service. Attentive and they try hard. Good wine list. A very good neighborhood restaurant but not necessarily a go-out-of-your-way destination place. Fun decor. We had dinner but it looked likely a fun and lively bar scene, too.

I like it downstairs in the library or on the patio. But anywhere in the surprising restaurant, you'll get good, friendly service and excellent food. The managers keep a close eye on things, and the customer's satisfaction is number one with them and the owners. My favorite place in all of Greater Newport Beach.

We were seated 30 minutes past our reservation even though there were a few open tables and then it was about 20 minutes before anyone took our drink orders. It was Easter brunch but there were a lot of servers and other staff and it’s not a huge place. The booths are very tight, not a lot of table room, had to keep shifting everything around. There were 5 bite size muffins for the four of us, they should serve full size bread or muffins, especially in this type of restaurant, or at least provide 2 for each guest. One of the desserts didn’t arrive so there was an awkward exchange about that. No place will be exactly perfect, but they definitely need to make these few adjustments.

This was are 2nd time dining here, 1st was for dinner about 2 weeks ago. We have driven by so many times on our way to Laguna Beach, always saying "I want to go there". Well when restaurant week came up he said let's try something new. So new it was...the Calamari was so delicious had it the 1st night and again for lunch. The short rib was awesome and my salmon cooked perfectly. We had the Cajun grilled cheese for lunch was outstanding. One of my new favorites.

The Bungalow has been our favorite place to dine when we have a special occasion for many years now. We go there many times every year and have always been impressed with the quality of the food and service. The menu is full of very creative and beautifully prepared and presented choices - and they never ever disappoint. Love everything about it!

Filet was fine, sides were great, butter cake is really great. Lobster dinner overcook and $80 as the A/Q is a bit high how it was prepared.

The first waitress was a snooty and annoying, second waitress was great.

Overall its a good neighborhood alternative. My first waitress acted as though they were executing a meal on par with The Cut, Mastro's or even Selanne's and I just didn't realize it.

It would have been more enjoyable without her telling me how to order my $300 meal since this wasn't my first.

We have been dining at the Bungalow occasionally for years. This visit was to meet up with family in town on business and spend a nice dinner together. The food was delicious, and we had a great time with no real pressure to get out on a quite evening.

Have always enjoyed our meals at Bungalow. You provide the answer to every reason for dining out...great food, great service and nicely appointed decor. The ambience creates a party- like experience, with the ability for four friends to converse as if they were not in a crowd. Over the years we have recommended your restaurant to others and like to bring out-of-town guests for dinner. Thanks for your attention to detail from entry to exit.

We thought the food was terrific. The service was just okay, but we felt somewhat rushed at the end. They brought the bill without even asking if we wanted coffee with our dessert. It seemed obvious to us that they wanted to turn the table. The restaurant was crowded but it didn't feel right and we were a bit uncomfortable with the end to the meal. Not sure I would recommend this restaurant because of this. Also not sure we would ever return because of it.

We first came here for a Christmas lunch when I discovered the Special Goose entree. Everyone had something different and we all loved the food, and the ambiance. Then I saw that they were participants in OC Restaurant week! So another opportunity! The Bungalow did not disappoint! Once again, the food was fabulous, the vegetarian options were excellent and we love the Butter Cake!! And the service was excellent as well! This is our go to for fun girls lunches and now dinner as well!

We arrived at street level which was the bar and very noisy. We were led down two more flights to the covered patio with a beautiful fireplace. We sat near and enjoyed the warmth as it was a cool evening. We order drinks which came right away. I didn’t care for mine and was soon brought another. It was a while before he took our order and a long time to receive dinner. But when my lamb chops arrived they were delicious as well as desert. My friend liked his stake but thought mine was better. The only complaint was the slow service.

Valentine's Day - At first miffed because they had a limited menu with set 3 course dinner and they added tables. But all was very good. The menu choices were everything that we wanted and it wasn't overly crowded with tables. Everything was perfectly cooked and service perfect as always. They have the best lobster. Highly recommend the Bungalow (Corona Del Mar).

We’ve been to the Bungalow two Thanksgivings and it’s a favorite of ours. This time, the food was nothing special and it kind of felt like a Southwest Airlines cattle call with the number of tables for expected guests. We were seated downstairs amongst empty tables when there were much better tables available. When we left an hour later, many tables were still open that would have given my wife and I a better experience. The Bungalow is capable of better.
