My family loves Great Maple. It's a frequent stop for us. We're never disappointed and my wallet doesn't take much of a hit. That's not common for great eateries in Newport Beach.

New menu from the last time I dined here. Ate outside where noise level is much more comfortable . Started with the mushrooms for ‘the table’ - absolutely delicious . Had the chicken - was told there were a lot of bones but that was not the case - excellent. We ended with caramel ice cream that was sensational. Was not expecting such a 5 Star meal and was very impressed. Cannot wait to go back.

Most important it is dog friendly. BLT sandwich great. This time, however, someone in the kitchen left a dark hair in veggie burger and forgot the tomato in the BLT. Waitress great.

We have been going to Great Maple for years, and have always enjoyed it. Their new menu, however, has made the restaurant even better. We love the variety of items available, as well as the unique twist that put on old favorites. The atmosphere is relaxed and very comfortable and we love sitting on the patio. The staff is very friendly and always make our experience that much more enjoyable. We brought friends with us this time, and they were just as pleased as we were. They will be coming back as will we.

2nd visit to Great Maple and both were outstanding! Sunday Brunch was incredible and everyday lunch was just as good. Good food choices for the whole family. A few favorites: breakfast burrito, open-faced lobster sandwich, great bloody marys, prime rib sandwich. We will be back whenever we can. Servers and staff are top notch as well.

This was our first try at Great Maple and we were pleasantly surprised to find Happy Hour on Sunday! They have a 7-day a week HH. The menu was great! We had the Califlower Curry Hummus adn the Angus Burger and both were delicious! We also tried the bacon Mac and Cheese -- but we have had better.

We sat on the patio and their was outdoor mall live music that made the ambiance special! Loved it and we will go back!

Service was awful. Had to ask three people for a high chair that eventually came after the meal. I had to tell my waitress my order three times because she couldn't remember and because they don't write down orders. Waitress kept forgetting to give us a side that we ordered. Kids grilled chicken meal is a healthy dish but too bland and overcooked. Only nice if you want to dine outside and/or want to bring a dog along. Otherwise go next door to Cheesecake Factory.

Disappointed this time. They seemed to be testing out a new menu. Which was a bad start since we came for the lamb burgers. No longer on the menu. Too bad, since they were probably the best in the county. Second, my husband ordered a chicken dish which included cauliflower hash. The ingredients for the cauliflower hash were pretty well described on the menu, except for the bacon that showed up in the dish. And I mean a lot of bacon. Neither my husband or I eat bacon. In fact I ordered a salad without bacon and the waitress failed to mention anything to my husband about the fact that his dish might have a surprise. No reason to revisit this restaurant.

If I could give this restaurant no stores I would. Honestly very disappointing. The food quality was beyond poor and just the worst I've had in a life time. The restaurant is in massive need of a thorough clean. The smells and overall hygiene was quite poor and used. My entree was brought out before my appetizer or drink which was frustrating. My waitress was very nice but that was about the only positive about this dining experience. Very disappointing and used. If u want to pay money for very poor quality food then this is for place.
