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.

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.

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!!

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.

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.

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.
