Great Maple - Fashion Island
The shaved prime rib sandwich with truffle French fries was very good.
Good service and atmosphere and food
The food is delish and fresh. Positive vibe and ambiance. It’s a little noisy but I like it. We enjoyed brunch at the bar and service was great👍🏼
Perfect ambiance for a friendly luncheon or quaint dinner. Overall the experience was great! Highly recommend it.
Best food ever. Great variety. Great service. Great atmosphere. Favorite place.
Excellent food and service. Menu is very creative, something for everyone. A bit pricey though. I would go again!
Fish was over cooked
Thomas our server was great! Food, outstanding as always. Just a really nice afternoon at Great Maple ... oh, and the maple bacon donuts ... damn those maple bacon donuts ... why do they have to be soooooo amazing?!
Great Maple has been one of our favorites, since it opened. It’s been on the decline for a little while, and Friday night was awful. Our service was incredibly slow, our meal took over 2 hours without desert. Our drink orders showed up at the end of the meal, rather than the beginning. We were told they were “lost”. We were never able to get a refill on our water, despite flagging down several people. The French dip is our favorite, it was rare and so fatty it was impossible to eat. I hope they turn it around. Given the number of wonderful restaurants in Newport, I don’t think we’ll go back soon.
We have been coming to great maple for some time now and were disappointed a couple of years ago with service. We decided to give it a chance again and whatever you have done, you must keep doing! Food has always been great but service was completely night and day! Our server always anticipated our needs and accommodated all of our request! We never had to ask for refills or felt like anything was missing. Keep up the great work!
Went for Brunch and enjoyed our experienc. Menu a bit limited but good quality
Service was excellent and only food items we enjoyed were Portobello mushroom fries and maple bacon doughnut. Steak was too dry and chewy. Fish dish was very blend without flavor. Our waiter was very professional and attentive.
Service was a little slow this time as it was very crowded. Also we sat outside but in the cold weather our table was very chilly. Recommend they find a way to block the cold wind that comes through the gaps in the plastic sheeting but the poles. Maybe some small plastic sheets that can be velcroed over the gaps to block the wind. Thanks for listening. Cheers
Everything was amazing from start to finish! From the beverages to the maple bacon donut for dessert!
Made a reservation, it was too loud inside so we asked to be moved outside, it was much better. we all ordered off the Restaurant Week menu. We all agreed the food was delicious! Three of us ordered the salmon, one ordered the white fish. The donut was decadent but we all loved it! This was all our first time visiting, we will definitely be back and recommend to others.
WOW! Food is amazing here! Had the pleasure of meeting the General Manager, such a gem. This place is great! Order the BLT bacon for days!
Loved our dinner! Enjoyed the patio, even with the rain. It was enclosed and warm and dry. The food was excellent and our server was awesome... she was helpful and bubbly.
Love this restaurant but was very disappointed when I took a friend, who had not been there before, for Orange County restaurant week. We wanted to share an appetizer and then share the restaurant week special. We were seriously put off when the waitress suddenly and rather rudely informed us that we could not share the special. What? Why not? We can share everything else on the menu and we shared a $58 bottle of wine but we could not share the OC restaurant week special? It made NO sense and I was embarrassed for recommending the restaurant.
Great value excellent service for restaurant week
Food and service “Thomas” were amazing! Only negative is that it’s so noisy you have to yell if you want to talk to the people you’re dining with.
Amazing meal and drinks. Great service too! Fantastic made to order donut for desert.
My family and I came here for my birthday. The food was amazing. We started with truffle fries, portobello mushrooms fries, and calamari. The berry cobbler cocktail was perfect! The main dishes were also great. Two of us had the steak frites, very juicy and delicious. To end the night we had the bacon maple donuts... rich, but a great option to share among the table. We all want to come back!!
Oh and our server was so sweet and lovely, great service!!
Amazing food, amazing service and cool atmosphere!
The maple doughnuts with fried chicken was To. Die. For!
I love it here! Once again amazing brunch and strong drinks!!! What a great combo. The Cobb wedge salad was huge in portion. This place has the best Brunch!
Great experience as it always is. Thanks to Thomas for his attentive service. We enjoyed our birthday/anniversary visit. See you again soon!
THE FOOD WAS TERRIBLE! 3 of us ordered salads. The Modern Caesar was described as mostly Kale, and instead had only romaine and mixed greens. There wasn't any Kale. When we asked our server if there was a mistake with the "modern" caesar, he brought us a plate with more romaine and mixed greens. The "Baby Kale" salad with brie also had NO KALE. It was made up of romaine and mixed greens. We were also overcharged for an extra beer. We will not go back.
Great place for brunch. Great drinks and food selection. Place was packed and lively. A good way to start off a day on the weekend. Enjoyed the atmosphere and staff's attention to making me and my guest welcome and comfortable.
The food was delicious and the service was great! It was just a little bit noisy, but had a fun and festive atmosphere!
I've always loved the Great Maple. One thing I love is the Portobello Mushroom Fries. This past visit I did of course get the Portobello fries...only problem this time there was too much salt on them. Next time I order I'll tell them no salt. Other than that everything else was good.
I previously wrote a fabulous review for Great Maple in Pasadena. Unfortunately I thought that all locations would have the same standards. Very disappointed with their Fashion Island location. Food was sub par. Probably won't go back.
The service was a bit slow and had to wait for a little longer than expected for food. Food was good!
Egg scramble portion was a bit on the small side
Donuts and cocktails were amazing! My entree was average- the avocado toast with grilled chicken, however I didn’t mind because the service, cocktails and donuts were awesome!
Great Maple is a favorite of ours. Casual atmosphere with great tasting comfort food. Be sure to leave room for a maple bacon donut! Amazing!
Great Maple is a consistently good place to eat when visiting Fashion Island. There are plenty of good options on the menu. I especially like eating outside in the morning or at lunchtime.
The food was fantastic, the service was refreshing and above and beyond and the outdoor dining with our dog was a delightful experience! Loved everything about our visit and we will be back!!
The best brunch in Newport Beach.
The service and food are amazing, quality of the food it's really good.
Try the chilaquiles with chorizo and eggs..... Delicious.
Always enjoy my dinner at this resturant staff always helpful, accommodates my food changes .
We just discovered their steakhouse burger -- FABULOUS!! And even better because it's on their incredible Happy Hour menu! Also, when the weather is nice we like to bring our pooch and sit out on the patio. Great food and service!
