I have gone to great Maple many times but I was disappointed this time not in the quality of the food which was excellent not in the ambiance which was also very good but in the fact that I set up a birthday dinner for a friend and they didn’t even have a birthday cake or scoop of ice cream for the person at the end of the meal. Disappointing!!

I was in town and took My Goddaughter to Great Maple as it’s always a great place to eat. Unfortunately it was taking kind of long and then unfortunately there was a hair on my avocado. I did get a new chicken bowl but I was expecting a little bit more from Great Maple... been here multiple times to have this happen. It was a disappointment.

Menu too reduced.
Missing descent starters.
Food was bland and not that good
We have eaten with you well over 25 times and know your store and food.
Will not return anytime soon
You need to step it up and expand or improve the menu .
Work on food taste.

Great service, with drinks brought quickly on a HOT day. Appetizer of hummus and veggies were nicely done, as were the fried chicken sandwich and the wedge salad. Look forward to a return visit.

We ordered the shrimp benedict and prime rib melt, which was very good. Truffle fries were perfect. Maple bacon old fashion was good too. The Bloody Mary was too thick for my liking. Overall nice place, deserves a revisit.

Great service (thanks Adrian!), good food (though the menu and its selections are a bit small), nice open space outdoor seating area! I come here every time I go to Fashion Island, can't go wrong! I recommend getting the portobello mushroom fries, beignets, steakhouse burger, upgrade to truffle fries, and the cauliflower hummus plate. The staff wears masks here.

Salmon was tender and flavorful. The farro and green beans were SO good. The passionfruit marguerita was refreshing and not syrupy or too sweet. Topped off with famous maple bacon donut which was out of this world!

We had a fantastic early dinner at Great Maple Newport Beach, CA. I made a reservation thru Open Table and it was a breeze. Once we got to the place, we were seated immediately. Our server was kind and attentive. We ordered the portabello mushroom fries and the truffle fries as our appetizers -both were delicious! For main course, I ordered the salmon, our daughter ordered chicken tenders and fries and my spouse ordered doughnuts and chicken. All our food were tasty, we loved everything! We have an awesome outdoor dining experience. We’ll be back for sure.

It started out to be a nice girls lunch. A friend was visiting and we decided to take her to great maple. A go to favorite of mine. BIG MISTAKE. I know we are all going through difficult times with COVID but please just try to make a dining experience a nice one. Waiter from the beginning was not friendly nor cordial. He brought set ups and just kind of threw them on the table. Then proceeded to bring very small water glasses and would not refill them. It was a very hot day. He took our lunch order but never asked for a drink order. We were sitting outside and just wanted our water glasses at this point to be kept full. He couldn’t be bothered. Meals arrived and one of the meals was to be cooked Well Done. It was raw. Our friend didn’t want to say anything but we all insisted. Mine was to be medium and was too on the raw side for a medium order. The server never asked about it. I picked around it and ate about a fourth of what I could and the waiter never came back to check if all was ok. The manager did address the problem and was very apologetic about it and said he would take it off the bill. That was the professional way to handle it and we appreciated the effort. My other friend finished her sandwich and immediately had to head to the bathroom where she stayed for a good while. Something she ate did not agree with her and hit fast. I then asked for the check paid our bill and left to get my friends home. What a disaster. We noticed other tables around us having problems too so maybe it was an off day or new help that just isn’t up to the standards.
Great Maple has always been a favorite to go to for good food. good service, and great atmosphere. I just hope the one in Pasadena hasn’t changed. Probably won’t be back to this one.
