Amazing service! We were welcomed with a smile and seated to our preference right away. Our server, Brandon(?) was spectacularly attentive and accommodating to our special requests. Everything was perfect. The food and cocktails were great. Other restaurants should follow your lead in customer service. We will be back. Thank you!

I’m glad we had reservations. I love he outdoor seating even if we sat inside this visit. The food was excellent. Our server was great and attentive. The space was a little tight and it is a popular place so it was a little hard to have a discussion.

We love Great Maple! The food is consistently good with a nice variety. Their cocktails are hand crafted and never overly sweet. The service is above and beyond, from the servers to the manager Kayla we always feel welcome. Absolutely our favorite spot at fashion island!

we've been here on several occasions and have never been disappointed. They were a bit busy so service was a little slower than normal but other than that enjoy all of their offerings and to dine in Fashion Island I feel that the pricing is reasonable compared to some other eateries there.

Went to Great Maple for a leisurely lunch on a Saturday afternoon with a couple friends. The food was very good and came out at a good pace. Lots of comfort food and good for brunch, coctails, and even the coffee was good. The waitress was friendly and attentive. The place is very busy so try and make a reservation if possible. I would definitely recommend Great Maple to friends and family.

We went to Great Maple at Noon on a Sunday, so it was packed. Luckily, the reservation prevented a 30 minute wait time for walk ups. The food was rich and tasty. We had the burrito and egg and gruyere and Swiss cheese, both were fabulous and so much that we could barely finish. Good coffee as well. The mimosa was nice and at a nice price, but a bit small. We took home the bacon ample doughnuts... they didn't last long, despite their large size.

Brunch on a Saturday was perfect! The service was exceptional- very polite and genuine server and staff who picked up dirty plates promptly. The decor and color scheme was inviting and lovely. You must try the Parmesan Mushroom Fries and Blackberry Cobbler alcoholic drink. I would love to return!

Great Maple has become our go to Restaurant for birthday dinners. The food is consistently good and the mushroom fries are always a big hit for everyone no matter what we are eating. The wait staff is friendly, accommodating and always adds to the experience. In terms of noise, we find that the outside patio is our first choice. Last night was colder than usual outside, but the warmers were more than adequate to keep us comfortable on the patio where it’s so much easier to hear and there’s truly no noise issue at all. Definitely recommend the salmon and always the burgers! We got the Apple pie à la mode for the birthday boy – huge hit.

I really liked the bar menu but something was just “off” on our service somehow. The manager came over and introduced himself but then never returned to the table. Our waiter was very friendly, funny, and personable however service dropped off about 70% into our meal. Food was very tasty and fresh; I really wanted to like Great Maple more than I did. With a few tweaks this will be a hot spot at Fashion Island.

wow. Unique and not skimpy on portions! The food was excellent, prepared to standout as something special. While the prices aren't skimpy, the meals aren't either. And did I mention the maple bacon? Deliciousness. The BLT (with added avocado) was thick and looked like a fancy roast beef sandwich from a tavern. It was served with a side salad and was far more than one person could eat. Maple bacon. Had to say it again. The service was wonderful, timely, friendly and spunky. While it was a bit loud at 1:00 on a Sunday afternoon, it was a memorable treat. Not the menu you'd see at your own Regal Beagle. What looked like a plate of pound cake wedges on the table next to me was actually an enormous portion of what had to be the most scrumptious looking French toast I've ever eyeballed. From the egg dishes to the huge French Dip, nothing went by our table that didn't look amazing - both in presentation and in quality. Definitely marking this one down as a must repeat experience!

Went with great hope for great food and fun times. Food was okay, nothing great. My friend had the Eggs Benedict and was disappointed. Avocado Toast order was the best thing at the table. I had the Croque Madame which was mediocre (way to much bread for the amount of filling), but it did taste good. The venue is very noisy, even on the patio. Would go back again, but maybe just for a coffee and salad.

Very interesting appetizers that are large enough to be a main course for some of us
The melted brie with greens is to die for
Sit outside away from the bar and the inside noise and great for a view of Nordstrom's shoppers right next door

My family and friends enjoyed our meals tremendously. But what was amazing was that I left my wallet at the restaurant. I didn't realize it until the next day, and when I called, they had the wallet - with the money and credit cards intact. So, not only does this restaurant have gereat food, they hire honest people. What more could one ask for!

"Fine; but not inexpensive"...that is the best way to explain our experience. Am unsure where this restaurant sees itself - no longer a farm to table/ fresh food experience, it feels like a hamburger joint that overcharges on the beverages? As a local, this used to be a go-to for us, but the menu, pricing and overall inefficinces of service (no silverware, ask specifically for ice water...get the water, no ice....then, ask for ice...crickets, then no soup spoon, etc) leaves this low on our list.

Flat bread and hummus was excellent so was the happy hour burger, but rib eye meat flavor was lacking but the toppings made up for it.
