Service excellent. Food was awesome, the steak cooked perfectly. What more can you ask for...
Great steak. Bay front dinner by is so much better then being on the noisy beach.
Great food and service. Had the chorizo and egg tacos... to die for, and not spicy for those who think chorizo is always hot. Great views and good times.
Great food with a million dollar view!
It was so hot. But our server was amazing! She made sure she could keep us cool as much as she could with chilled ice water, juices or alcohol!
It's always nice to sit outside by the harbor. Food was fine but the clam chowder was very salty.
The restaurant is in a very nice and beautiful area, but the food was very expensive, simple and didn't taste that great.
For me, the menu seems to be pretty limited, and priced a little high. Every time we go, it seems they have taken something I have gotten before and enjoyed off of the menu. Service was good, and sitting on the patio was pretty outstanding, although we were there late afternoon (5:30pm) and the heat was pretty brutal. Any way they can incorporate some umbrellas or some kind of shade device? Just a thought... Anyway, enjoyed time with our friends, and that's what we were there for.
Went for the bottomless mimosas. They refilled us like every 30 minute then after 3 mimosas they told us that our two hours was up even though it had barely been an hour. Will not be returning for brunch
The tacos that I ordered, when the waiter handed over the plate, it was really hot and my finger was burnt. The waiter was holding the salad side of the plate so he probably didn't notice he was handing me over the hot side of the plate.
When we asked for separate check, we were told it was super busy and they weren't able to process it. It seemed pretty open by the time we asked for the check but it would have been nice if he would have just told us, the restaurant is not able to do split check.
Food was excellent, the service was slow an our server would forget to bring things we needed, like an extra wine glass etc. the other complaint I have is the heaters never work, we had been here before an I thought they honestly just had a problem that night but they didn’t work again a month later so I don’t think they want to use them, unfortunate bcuz its a little cool to be outside in the evening an if you have to sit inside you may as well go somewhere else.
Disappointed once again!
We have been frequent diners at the cafe and find the menu with very few over priced choices, fair service( had to ask for cream and sugar 3x). The restaurant seemed to be over whelmed with no one in charge and servers running around. We come by boat and love the ambiance, but always concerned about what the dinner and the service is going to be like, especially when we are taking guests there for their first experience.
Food not good at all. Everything else, especially the setting, was great.
The food was excellent! But, it really is a café, not a Saturday evening atmosphere. All the hard surfaces indoors, make it noisy. Maybe outdoors would have been a better choice, but couldn't count on weather, even with heaters.
It was a quiet place. The food was okay. I had a chicken club that was very disappointing. The chicken seem like pre-made Tyson chicken that I can buy in the freezer section of the market. The rest of familys food was a little bit better. I expected more especially for the price. I also ordered a mix drink, not very good. At least they had beer so I just ordered beer after.
loved the ambiance and the view.. very unique. Not a lot of seating, best to make a reservation. You have to leave the building and walk around to another building to use public restroom. Was a little disappointed as we were there for breakfast and they were out of Bloody Mary Mix.
The food was good, the service (our waiter was Ryan) was outstanding and the view of the harbor and watching people enjoying it (SUP, kayak, duffy boats, etc.) was very relaxing.
Our friends had recommended the Lighthouse b/c they came for brunch last year. My husband loves lighthouses, so I thought he'd enjoy it. When I booked through Open Table, I indicated that we were celebrating his birthday, but the staff seemed to be unaware of it, which was disappointing to me. The food was really tasty - we had salmon, fish & chips, bolognese, soup & wings. I may go back if in the area, but I wouldn't go out of my way to do so.
The place was great with a breathtaking view.Food was delish and bottomless mimosas is something to come back for.
We have been going to Lighthouse since opening day and it always had issues with service. We still would go all the time because of the location and we live right next to it. But the service was just always so slow and inattentive so it always really bothered us.
Enter Morgan... we had her as our server this weekend and she honestly made the experience a million times better. I hope the restaurant hires more people like her, they are much needed. If rating only Morgan I'd rate 5 stars, but the food isn't my favorite and the seats and tables always seem to have some kind of syrup or something on them, yikes.
Great location, good food, somewhat pricy but great location. We had some issues that the manager addressed appropriately. We will be back.
Best fish and chips that we've had in a long, long time!! We'll definitely be returning soon!
Nice place. It is set up well. It wsa a bit overcast asnd the standing heaters filled in nicely. Beautiful view and the food was good and reasonably priced. I would go back (again and again).
We had very slow service. Took 15 mins after sitting down for someone to come to our table. Food was moderately good. The view was nice. Very noisy and very hot inside, AC wasn’t turned on no air was circulating in the restaurant.
This was the first time for me and my boyfriend to this cafe so we really didn't know what to expect. It was really busy and the service was kind of slow (maybe just a bad day for us), however the food was great . I will recommend this place to relax and hangout just as long as you are not in a hurry .
Mother’s Day, great location
Beautiful views of Newport Bat. Excellent meal and attentive service.
We had a delightful delicious Mothers Day Brunch. Great service and great view.
Great 2 course menu for Mother’s Day. Was a set menu for Mother’s Day and included 2 mimosas and beverages for one set price per person. View was awesome!
Great location, but does not live up to the hype. Food is average at best.
I took my mom on a Saturday for brunch. I made a reservation not knowing what to expect. We walked up, gave our name and we were immediately seated. I had requested outdoor seating in the reservation but it was a bit chilly that morning so they sat us inside with no hesitation. I loved our waiter and enjoyed the atmosphere and food. I will be returning and definitely recommending this place to friends and family. Don’t forget to try the beignets!
We were seated right away and the environment was light and bright. The beignets were exceptional! Nice selection of mimosas and the bloody Mary’s looked great. Blueberry pancakes need fresh blueberries, potatoes seemed to have been reheated and not fresh which was a disappointment because the eggs Benedict were really good. Then a large party of 15 young women arrived and the noise became unbearable. Would like to go again and try other menu items.
We went on Friday morning at 0930 hours. It was not busy. Food was good. When your server asks if you would like an order of beignets, SAY YES. In the summertime, this place will be very difficult to get to since it is on the peninsula. It seems to be part of the Newport Beach Community Center, so there is a pay parking lot, which would be beneficial at the height of summer.
We will definitely be back, but probably not until after labor day.
We enjoyed a delicious dinner and the service was excellent!!
Terrible experience. Reservation was given away due to a late bigger table because of more profit for restaurant per obvious insinuations from MANAGER even though we checked in 10 minutes EARLY. GIVEN a wobbly table that 3 workers saw prior to busser offering to fix. 20 minutes for bloody marys with my husband's celery being dirty and mine having a DEAD BUG. Manager attempted to compensate with a comped appetizer and upgraded bloody Mary's. We were also returned to better table original reservation requested. Food was forgotten (Not sure if server or kitchens fault) with my husband's food making him sick followed by check without server even giving us a pen to use.
I made a reservation 2 days prior and everything went really smooth! My party of 4 was seated right away. It was a brisk Sunday morning but we wanted to sit outside. They had heaters and even gave us blankets which helped so much. I really liked that. The service was good but the food was very mediocre. I ordered the 2 eggs, potatoes and sourdough toast. The eggs and potatoes had no flavor and the bread was not toasted. I should have tried the avocado toast but I really wanted potatoes. They were not worth it though!
Made a reservation to have brunch for a 1 year anniversary date
The only issue we had was a common one. Chefs do not like to make eggs well done and that is the only way I will eat them. So unfortunately I regularly get my eggs not cooked enough and then my husband finishes his breakfast before my remade eggs are right. That is what happened here. I appreciate that our meal was comped, but that was not my ultimate goal. I would rather have paid a reasonable price and eaten at the same time as my husband. Nonetheless, this was a beautiful spot on Newport’s peninsula and the patio was lovely on a very pleasant Sunday morning. The menu was complete, the prices reasonable and the service was excellent.
Great food in a beautiful location
