The most amazing experience! Our service was top notch and the food was great! The chicken and doughnuts is a must order!
I will continue to come back!
Service was substandard. Managment does not understand how to properly staff a restaurant.
So many better restaurants in Fashion Island. We will never return.
Great meal! Unique and delicious menu. We will be back
Good food. Good atmosphere. Good service.
Good service and food.
I went to meet a friend for lunch looking for fresh creative cuisine and was pleased. Service was great. Huge drawback is that because the music plays as loudly as it did people had to compete with it and get even louder. Liked it overall but would hesitate to return because of the noise level (even sitting outside where you’d think the noise would dissipate...)
I went to Great Maple with some co-workers, to take out a guest speaker. I have been there once before, and was quite impressed - I was equally impressed this time. The truffle mushroom fries are delicious and just the beginning - the main dishes are also quite tasty. The desserts are outstanding - we had the beignets and the cereal milk/maple-glazed doughnuts. Will definitely come again!
Very ordinary food, staff tried hard but poorly trained, they meant well
Not nearly as good as the last time I went. Maple bacon donut is still amazing. Had the lobster popover Benedict for brunch & it was not good at all. It was swimming in water either from the poached eggs, or steamed lobster. I expected a little moisture (from lobster), but this left a undesirable puddle on my plate it made the popover & arugula soggy, on top of taking taking away from the wonderful poached egg & lobster. Potatoes where cooked & seasons beautifully.
Usually a great experience but our food was cold and bland last night. Hopefully it was just a fluke.
Great choice in Fashion Island. Creative and delicious menu!!!
Turkey burgers dry and overly well done. Server NEVER asked how you like your burgers cooked? Waited 30 minutes or more before food arrived then tough dry food. Soooo disappointed. Asked for mgr and he was busy talking and laughing with friend. I had to get up and walk over to him to complain. He took off my burger BUT NOT MY COMPANION 's ... which is crazy as both unhappy. He did not come over and talk to my companion or investigate further. Bad service. Bad food!!!!
We were seated pretty quickly and the service was prompt. We ordered a couple drinks and appetizers that were delicious! We ordered the charred cauliflower hummus, mini Brie grilled cheese and split the kale and Brie salad. For dessert, we ordered the seasonal donuts, which were fruity pebbles flavored. The mini Brie grilled cheese was ok; there was a little too much bread and not enough Brie. But everything else was phenomenal! For we had the lavender lemonade and the great mule, which were both delicious. The seating was moderately comfortable, but it was a bit loud. The music was at the perfect volume, not too loud. The waitstaff was attentive and timely. Overall, a wonderful experience.
Great Maple has good energy and quality food prepared with impeccable skill. The servers are all attentive, and the somewhat close seating accommodates as many guests as possible and creates a friendly vibe between tables.
Great food! Even better service. Love the atmosphere and decor. Will def be back to bring all my friends.
Ordered two bellini and one looked half empy upon arrival. We ordered a second round, empty glasses were never cleared until our bill was brought about 40 mins later just taking up space on our small 2-top. Overall food was good and we will return. Service was likely lacking due to how busy they were for brunch.
We absolutely love Great Maple and have been going there since it opened bringing many of our friends with us. Our only problem is that the wine selection is very limited....especially Pinot Noir. We have only seen one selection of it and many times, when we’re there, they’ve run out. Obviously, we are not the only ones who like Pinot. Would love for them to have more on hand.
The restaurant was not at all busy for a Thursday night but it took forever to get our drinks and food. The fried chicken and donuts were very good though. Not sure how this place manages if they are actually busy.
MAPLE BACON DONUTS, Need I say more. It is thick cut, great bacon too. Do not go here if you are on a diet or watching your calories. This is definitely a splurge day locale. Great for Sunday brunch with friends, and at 10 when they open it usually isn't hard to get a table.
Seated promptly and fairly busy. Our waiter came to take our order and gave us one glass of water. We had the beef drip sandwiches. That was the last time we saw him (since others brought out our plates) except for stopping once to say he would refill our empty drinks which never happened. All the other tables had carafes of water except for ours and we were quite thirsty upon finishing our meal. We waited for quite a long time then asked another employee for a drink. Felt pretty much ignored the whole visit. After quite a while our check arrived. Food was good but service was not. It could have been an off night but everyone around us seemed to be taken care of. Not sure I would return after our first experience.
Good service. Good atmosphere. Enjoyable place.
My salad was a bit more oily than I expected but I also ordered very quickly because I was already busy talking business! I'm looking forward to going back though!
The first waitress brought my husband the wrong cocktail and me the wrong glass of wine. She was not attentive and was replaced with a much better waiter. I enjoyed the Caesar Salad, my husband had the chicken bowl which was good but needed more seasoning. My daughter ordered the Maple Salmon which was good but didn’t love the sides served with it. Another guest had the chopped salad and enjoyed it. The Beignets were quite good for dessert. It was a Sunday night and they were playing this awful and very loud club like music...which I e never heard in this restaurant before...lose the club tunes please!
Another wonderful brunch at The Great Maple. Maple Bacon Donuts are a must! Friendly staff and good service.
Great for large party!
Thank goodness we made a reservation because it was packed for brunch on a Sunday!
The food was good. Veggie omelette was ok not spectacular. Their maple bacon donuts are insanely good! Atmosphere is great and sitting on their patio is lovely. Service was good too.
I was really pleasantly surprised, because this great restaurant is located in a beautiful outdoor shopping mall. My Chicken Wedge salad was really amazing and my maple donut? To die for.
I will definitely be going back.
Excellent as always, Highly recommend this restaurant, specially for Sunday Brunch.
In the past we have had generally very good experiences with Great Maple Newport Beach, but our September 8, 2018 dinner was substandard. They tried to serve us a cold hamburger and fries. When we sent them back, they tried to bill us twice for the hamburger! The server was clearly poorly trained and the manager (I believe he was the manager) had no customer service skills. This is the second time in my life I did not tip the server (my normal tip is 20% to 40%). This overall dining experience was a major disappointment!
we enjoyed the great food but most of all the people watching and their dogs. their BLT is verrrry good.
Had a wonderful dinner on Labor day. Late night but great service, wonderful food and easy dinner.
Used to serve great salads & sandwiches. Food looked like it had been standing out for a while &
just reheated. Disappointed!
Nice, we have been here many times. It appeared that Great Maple was understaffed for the lunch time rush.
Good neighborhood spot... easily forgotten but well worth it.
It was a scorching hot day. There were no fans to cool down the customers. It must have been 90 degrees in there. There were so many tables shoved in there, the waiters couldn’t move. The noise was loud to the point we were shouting at each other. We won’t return.
Great food. Nice dining area.
2nd time visit. Food is tasty and well presented. Servers are professionals. Will return for a 3rd visit.
