Service was below average. Did a lot of waiting. Usually a great experience. Service seemed overwhelmed with no back up. disappointed
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.
Always good and certainly save room for dessert! Not to mention, the cocktails make it all great.
Delicious lunch outside on the patio. Would recommend for lunch or dinner with a date or friends.
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.
Sunday brunch family reunion
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!
Fabulous food - the spicy maple bacon is yum!! Too much to choose from so will be going back soon.
Meh. Order the portabello "fries" appetizer. That was good. I had the brick chicken and it was meh. I also ordered truffle parmesan fries and I BARELY detected any truffle and scant parmesan.
Solid lunch or dinner spot in Newport Beach. Food and Service always good!!
Yummy! Great food, so so service ... under staffed for how busy
"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.
Excellent , excellent , excellent !
Lovely meal out on the patio. Delicious!!
Great spot to take a break from shopping and people watch. Really enjoyed their Maple Bacon Old Fashioned, and LOVED the house made bacon maple donuts. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Nice happy hour menu. We will be back!
Disappointing, food and service were just ok.
Quite pricey for what you got
The salad was incredible! It took a bit for the food to come out. Definitely thankful that we had an appetizer. Friendly staff and delicious food.
Our brunch was delicious!!! Highly recommend the maple bacon donuts. We can’t wait to go back.
Always awesome! I probably have gone there 50 times last year.
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.
Great food. Good Bloody Marys. Friendly service. Never a bad choice. Thank you.
Unique bacon maple glazed doughnuts. Even I, who don't usually eat bacon, like out very much. The fat of bacon is really dripped off, quite lean & not greasy at all.
However, the noise level is very loud and annoying at times. I guess it's holiday season!!
Didn't start off positive. After being seated, waited at least 15 min before anyone came to our table. They apologized, said the section was really busy that night. Then, our appetizer(which we didn't receive until our meal), was given to another table. That being said, an employee came to our table & apologized for the mix up & comp'd it. By the way, it would've been nice if he told us he was the mgr., etc. The Portobello fries with aoli sauce was delicious! A must try. Their specialty cocktails are really, really good. Despite the service issue, I'd definitely come back.
We enjoyed the outdoor seating, and the server was very nice and accommodating.
Your bacon maple doughnuts were among one of the best desserts we have ever had.
Had a reservation took them 30 minutes to seat us. Food all came out together. Very disappointed.
This was my second time visiting the restaurant and it was just as awesome as I remembered! Service was great -our server made some good recommendations. The best though was the food! Maple bacon donuts for appetizers....seriously!!!!
Great Maple is always a favorite spot in a fantastic location. When meeting friends at the mall, or doing a bit of shopping on my own, it's a casual and fun atmosphere with fantastic food and a friendly staff.
Overall our food was very good. The veggie burger was outstanding and everyone in my party enjoyed their food. The only letdown were the beignets, the tasted like fried, stale ciabatta bread covered in powdered sugar.
Maple Salmon dinner was excellent along with the Blackberry Cobbler drink!
Brunch was incredible! The chicken & doughnuts were a huge hit. Every dish looked fresh and appealing. They even let our group of 8 women sit and chat for 2 hours without rushing us out the door. Great service!!
Food was amazing!
Everyone found a perfect dish for their cravings combined with the perfect libation. Really good service and a great price. This was a super find after hours of holiday shopping!
Pleasant experience but restaurant is noisy and sides with Market Fish were very underwhelming. More bread should come out at once with larger tables. Dessert was quite delayed. Bathroom paper goods were not well stocked. Waitstaff was friendly.
Food was excellent...
Try those portobello mushroom fries... very nice
Service was great even though crowded...
Experience and food here is always exceptional
