Was not impressed by this place at all. Mediocre service, ambiance was just ok and most importantly, the food was poor. Wasn’t happy by choosing this place to celebrate my anniversary.

Prime rib was horrible. It was suppose to be dry aged.

Our server, Paula, was Awesome. Her assistant was Javier who was absolutely wonderful! The food was splendid as was the atmosphere. It was my husband's 60th birthday and was surprised with a dessert at the end of our meal. Very Nice!

My family used to go to Five Crowns every year to celebrate birthdays.
After some years off due to some changes with the restaurant, I decided to give it another try
I was very disappointed. Service was very slow; forgot to put in my sons order and just generally a disappointment .
I don’t know what it is about messing with something that is good, but Five Crowns has definitely gone down hill since when I first went there

We had not been to the Five Crowns in quite a long time. We had forgotten how lovely the atmosphere was but most of all how delicious the food was. Our guests enjoyed the lamb and the salmon was excellent. It was commented on a number of times through out the dinner how the combination of flavors was perfect. The creamed corn was so tasty and of course the Yorkshire pudding put the finishing touch on the meal.

We visit this restaurant whenever we are in Newport Beach (about once every couple of years—we own a timeshare at Newport Coast) and it is a highlight of our vacation! This visit was great—food is great, the service is first-class, and it has a British pub-type feeling that we love. If we lived out here, we would be regulars!

The Prime Rib doesn't measure up to the Lawry's restaurants.

Table was not set correctly. We had to wait to get proper silverware.
The lobster bisque was just a thin soup without any pieces of lobster.
Having ordered the large portion of prime rib it turned out to be a rather
small portion of meat and didn't seem like "prime" to me.
The horseradish cream sauce was served in a tiny container.
While we had a very nice waiter he forgot it was my birthday.
All in all I felt that the Five Crowns has lost its high standard
of service and food. Not sure I'll be back until quality is improved.

The service and ambiance were great—the food, not as good considering the price point. Both of us ordered the prime rib. It was cooked to order but not as tender as expected. The Yorkshire pudding was overcooked. We ate prime rib the following night at another restaurant. It was extraordinarily tender and cost $20 less.

The prime rib was a disappointment.

When you bring a shared appetizer, you should automatically bring plates.
When there’s a special occasion dessert, ask about other desserts and then bring all desserts at the same time.

Always a great time at five crowns. Celebrating my husband’s birthday. We were given great attention by our server. Always making sure our wine glasses were full and we were enjoying our time. At the end of our meals my husband got a special song and dessert. Loved the passion that the servers have here.

The atmosphere and service was very good. We were disappointed in the prime rib, not very flavorful. The cost in the restaurant is a bit high for the value. Will try the bar menu the next time.

We come to Newport twice a year to use our timeshare and we try to have dinner at the Five Crowns as often as possible.
The last several years we have our daughter and son in law down and celebrate my husband’s birthday.
We have never had a bad experience.
This time was exceptional in all aspects, our server felt that our food might be slow in coming out and provided us with two appetizers on the house.
The ambiance is always wonderful, the food is extraordinary and service is first class.
Look forward to coming and have never had a bad experience

Terrible! To prevent a hassle, I gave my credit card to server so that I could pay for my table. My friend insisted that we split the bill even though I made the reservation in my name and tried to get your staff to acknowledge that it was my bill to pay.

As this was a special occasion to Celebrate Life, there was nothing special about this meal or the service. A restaurant of your status and reputation only gets one chance in my book. There are too many establishments for me to spend my dollars in. I will not be returning.

The restaurant is quaint and exactly what you would want if you looking for that rustic, yet polished, London steakhouse vibe. However the food was tired and overpriced. I have nothing bad to say about the quality of ingredients (didn’t ask, but assuming they must be high based on price) but the execution is that of a home cook. I was expecting much more from my salmon plate, and just to make sure my dish wasn’t a fluke I tried others around the table. No seasoning, poor plating, and over all flat. When taste and texture are both off I don’t know what’s left. The wine and service was great :) If you’re looking for a particular English vibe, come here. If you’re looking to spend on food and eat well, go elsewhere.
