Over priced. Food was took too long to get to us, and it was cold when it got to us. The food also looked unimpressive. Best of all, no practice of COVID social distancing.

Our waitress brought us the wrong order (wrong side, and prime rib was rare rather than medium), which was corrected. Otherwise a nice experience.

It was nice to get out for Valentines since we’ve all been on lockdown. The service and staff were all great, super friendly. We ordered a charcuterie board, I was a little disappointed it was a few slices of salami and cheese, and a lot of garnish. Other than that, our meal was delicious! Would definitely recommend, just save your money on the charcuterie board.

Excellent! The service was a 10+, the Old Fashion was wonderful, and the food was excellent! We had lobster bisque and a filet.....we had so much food we had to bring dessert home. A very enjoyable evening. My only minor criticism is that I wish they enforced a business casual dress code. I don’t want to sound snobbish, but we dressed nicely, as did most guests, but a few tables had people dressed in jeans, sweatshirts, baseball caps, sneakers, flip flops and shorts. Casually dressed people detract from the ambiance, which in addition to excellent food is why I pay the price for a fine dining restaurant.

Always a great place for a nice evening. During this covid period, they’ve converted the patio to a tented restaurant. Perfectly warm and couldn’t tell you are outside.

Always a good choice for prime rib.

We had a wonderful dining experience at Five Crowns. It has always been a favorite and special restaurant for us. We got engaged their in August of 1969! Truly one of OC's gems.

Always look forward to their prime rib. The creamed spinach a little off. The actual 2"cube of ice in my scotch glass was interesting. They said the spheres of ice weren't working out for them. It was amazing that their service manager remembered us from our last dinner in September. always fun to talk to her.

When we’ve visited Newport, we’ve wanted to try 5 Crowns and finally made a reservation two days prior. The outdoor dining did not diminish our experience or expectations. Food, service and ambiance were excellent.

I’m getting a reservation was easy! When we ran into problems, and could not make a reservation time, Marcos was outstanding in helping us to procure another reservation two hours later. The server was very good as we celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. The bartender was very informative, and helpful in choosing me the fire stone imperial Stout! What a great value! Thank you much for the experience, We will certainly recommend five crowns to our friends!

We really enjoyed our meal! The only problem was that we specifically chose this restaurant because we heard the carolers would be there that night. Unfortunately, we were told half way through the meal that they were cancelled. We will have to come next Christmas as we have been there during the holidays in years past and enjoyed the carolers!! Otherwise, our dinner was outstanding and Carrie our server was extra wonderful!!

Celebrated Birthday for my wife. Dined in the outdoor tent located in parking lot. The dinning experience was different than the normal Five Crowns cozy atmosphere, losing some of the ambiance,but, we are in COVID times. The tent was festively decorated, there was some street noise, but not bothersome. The quality of the food was excellent, enjoyed the craft cocktails. Severs were attentive and did a great job as usual.The Christmas carolers were hard to hear, because of there masks and standing at one end of the tent, but appreciate the effort and helped with the bring the Christmas holiday spirit. Thankful we could make it to 5 Crowns before the shutdown. Overall very nice experience, all things considered.

We came for my wife’s birthday and had a wonderful experience! The food was prepared to perfection and the ambiance was quite pleasant. We were there during a holiday event at the location which included Carolers, Christmas music, a fully decorated holiday tent for outdoor distanced dining, and of the course the full 5 Crowns/Lawry’s experience. We highly recommend the food and restaurant and look forward to visiting the restaurant again.

Prime rib was fabulous as well as all the sides. However, everyone at our table had overcooked popovers, which was a huge disappointment. Our waitress left the bill on our table without even a thank you. She would have been better behind a counter serving coffee. . Something was very wrong that night, especially after spending 350.00.
