The hostess was so rude - a couple walked in after us no reservation and they got their water and appetizers before and server talked to us! Our server was too busy for us it was a pretty bad experience!

Great Maple has a somewhat limited but interesting menu. Really noisy inside and even outside, but great for dogs who can sit outside with you and enjoy a bowl of water.

It was ok, not impressed with the food selection. Just burgers and sandwiches mostly. I had a chopped salad, not much to it. I’ve had way better salads from food chains.

We went for Valentine’s Day, mostly because it was the only place that had tables open. It was our first time and it was quite good! We shared the fried chicken and donuts as a starter. Yummmmyyyy! Sweet, savory and spicy all at once. For my meal, I had the Mediterranean-style bowl with salmon. It was tasty. I had to ask for some pita to go with it and they charged me for it. My husband had the French dip and said it was very good and big.
I felt like the tables were barren — no bread, just salt, pepper and a tiny candle. It wasn’t inviting. BTW, we sat on the patio. Inside was more put together. Also service was patchy. Not terrible but not attentive either. Overall, I would definitely visit again because the food was good and the menu was unique.

Our server Yvonne was fabulous! We started with old fashions topped with a strip of amazing maple bacon. You must order those portobello fries. They will change your life!

Really great food, prices match the area (a little high but expected for Newport), and service was a bit slow (the kitchen's fault moreso than the server, I think) but otherwise a very pleasant experience and we plan to be back! My reservation was for standard seating, not patio, and we were sat on the patio which was loud and quite cold (windy day) so I recommend anyone going to insist they seat you according to the preference you selected at the time of the reservation. It will make for a better experience, we wish we had!

We have had lunch there a few times and it was great. However for dinner it is not recommend. I had a veggie burger and it was dry and hard, the Salmon my husband had was cold and dry as well. The steak my son had was so small and it was also dry and he ask for it to be medium rare. The soup was cold and the coffee I think was made left over from the morning. The witness was sweet , but never checked in on us. The bus boy helping pick up the plates and pouring water kicked my chair and hit the back of my neck several times. My husband was getting quite upset about the whole situation . We will probably never go there again .

My food was good, but my companion said that her meal (Salmon grain bowl) was too salty and left her feeling she couldn’t drink enough water. We ordered hibiscus mint tea, but what we got was camomile. The service was very slow and included not being given a spoon when the soup was served. It took a good deal of time to get anyone to notice us to even ask for a spoon, and then more time to have it provided

My burger was fine but my fries were fries were warm instead of being hot. In addition, my wife’s chicken salad was light on the chicken and when we mentioned it to the person that brought us ou meals, he argued with us. I need a break from this place because half the time they over or under cook my meal.

We were greeted as soon as we arrived. I mentioned we had an Open Table reservation, and we were escorted right away to our reserved preference for our meal. Our server was attentive to our enjoyment and we received our order quite promptly. This was a lunch and we found the delicious food was priced just fine. I’d dine here at Great Maple - Fashion Island again!

We were looking for a place to have brunch on a Saturday while visiting Newport Beach for a weekend. This restaurant is located inside Fashion Island, which was where we wanted to spend the morning/early afternoon. It was during their Newport Beach Restaurant Week and they had a special menu. I wasn’t anticipating my second course, fried chicken and maple bacon doughnuts, to be so large as my first course, modern kale caesar, wasn’t when it came out. I was very pleased with the price and portions. Overall, great experience and delicious food!

My family and I wanted to try something new during OC Restaurant Week. We really enjoyed the food, although somewhat pricey...most of us had steak frites... delicious! The service was slow. We sat at the patio and were ignored for at least 15 min. Nobody brought water or bread until I waved my arms to a busboy passing by. A couple with a dog sat right next to us... there were dogs everywhere in the patio...I really like dogs, but they should not be allowed in restaurants. All in all, I may go back for the steak frites... However, for those wanting to celebrate a special occasion, I would recommend looking elsewhere. The Old Maple‘s ambiance is way too casual.

Plates not clean — especially the bottom. Biscuits and gravy incentive, but ultimately too much flavor in the gravy to eat more than a few bites without being overwhelmed. Biscuits were nice and crispy crumbly, which provided a perfect texture combination with any gravy. Slow service for Saturday brunch.

Ambiance, food, and service were all good. But the dish-ware and silverware were all not cleaned well (fork, knife, cup and plate!) There were food chunks stuck on all of them and the cup had lipstick stains on them. I normally would not point it out but when several of the dish-ware at a single table are not clean, I think it is worth noting. Our server brought us all new dish-ware but it makes me question how sanitary the restaurant is.

Poor service.
We ordered for a course meal, but the server brought a check instead of a dessert. When we asked if dessert would come, he said that the course did not include dessert. We pointed to the menu and noted that dessert should be included. After a while, the dessert arrived, but only one was carried instead of the number of people. However, I couldn't eat because he didn't bring a fork. In addition, we waited until the fork and desserts for everyone were delivered.
VERY POOR SERVICE!!!

Came here for breakfast to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Food was actually wonderful, but I didn’t enjoy the atmosphere - bit too noisy and cold inside the restaurant- and our server was distracted and forgot to return with coffee after offering more coffee to my husband mid-meal. Felt like we were waiting forever for the server to bring the check and finalize the payment. Overall a disappointing experience. We might possibly try again in warmer weather at a patio table.
