Great place t o meet and eat! The food is good, the ambiance priceless and on a good day, you can see how wonderful Newport Beach really is.
I made dinner reservations here for my birthday with my two daughters. We were very disappointed! My daughter and I attempted to share the lobster roll. It was so bad that we both spit out our first bite. I let the waiter know it had a very bad taste to it. He instead offered to swap it out for a $6.00 dessert. Nevermind the lobster roll was $17. I won't be going back. When making the dinner reservation we commented it was my birthday but no mention of it was made. My mistake for attempting something new for my birthday.
Monday afternoon 5 PM a staff meeting, leaving one waitress for the entire restaurant. She did an outstanding job, but service, including the cooks showed. We ordered two items on the menu, only to be told they were not currently available. The Clam Chowder soup and one draft beer, disappointing. The salads were good, the fish and chips were cooked unevenly, the pasta was good, full of shrimp and chorizo. Ordered it mild and glad I did.
Food was alright, the waitress was good enough.
We were asked to leave by the manager after 2 hrs, kind of understandable since we were only 6 people (not enough income I guess), but still not the best experience.
Definitely will NOT go back...
Beautiful decor, attentive staff, great menu, good for kids, good pricing. Will definitely be back.
Overall great brunch spot by the Newport beach. The inside can be quite noisy so I’d recommend outside seating as long as it’s not too windy and cold. Nice atmosphere by the beach and the food was quite good as well.
The food was amazing! View perfection 😍😍 my friends and I enjoyed the service. I would definitely come back
Had a very pleasant dining experience. Not a "fine dining"restaurant as I had expected. But will look forward to dining here again.
Great location. Excellent service. I’ll definitely return for another meal.
Found this place on yelp and absolutely loved it! It’s small, but so cozy and cute! I will definitely be back!
We had a very good experience. The food was good, the servers were all attentive, the décor is very cute.
The only small down side is the acoustics in the place are not great, the sounds of people laughing seem to echo a bit and if people are loud talkers you can hear everything. There is outside seating which is an alternative. But overall a great place.
Great place for a nice brunch on the water. It is nice to sit outside on a nice day and watch the boats go by...you also get to do a lot of people watching of those enjoying the beach.
Awesome food, great service, reasonable prices and beautiful views!
The server we had was Morgan & she was fantastic. Very bubbly with a great sense of humor. She was very attentive & seemed to always be on top of things. This was our first visit & we’ll definitely go back soon.
This is my third time at Lighthouse. We've always sat outside and looked at the harbor and boats. The cafe has a great menu, not too many items and what they do they do well. Excellent food and service. Pricing is very reasonable. Great place to take dogs. Ample parking, and it was super easy to get my mother and her wheelchair to one of the outside tables.
We reserved an outside table and they were super accomodating and moved us inside cause it was colder then we thought it would be. The food and service was great.
Great Mothersday for Brunch. Beautiful scenery and enjoyable atmosphere. The waiters were super polite and made the holiday a good one!
The Lighthouse Cafe is a beautiful place to eat. It was perfect for my small family group. We sat outside and had a beautiful view of the marina with beautiful boats everywhere. When I return to Newport, I'd definitely return to the Lighthouse Cafe.
The view is fantastic. The location is fantastic. The food was great.
2nd time here and will come again.
Beautiful patio overlooking the water. Menu is rather limited. Would prefer more options on the brunch/lunch menu. Only 2 salads, neither of which was unique.
The environment is nice but the food and service could use some work. The chorizo was so chewy that each piece had to be spat out.
A little loud for conversation!!
Too loud and interior is not cozy or warm! Waiter was very good.
Great cafe and service!
Beautiful view of the harbor! Delicious brunch! Try the beignets! Best I’ve ever had!
Great local spot for outdoor dining. Friendly staff and good food.
Our waiters were very attentive and personable. Our food was fantastic and the view is amazing.
We enjoyed our Easter Brunch with a great view of the harbor and great food!
Fun food, great location. Noise level inside is almost intolerable. Need more soft materials to absorb the sound
Menu was completely different than what was advertised. Luckily what I ended up getting was great!
Loved it here!! Service was very slow but food was good and couldn’t beat the ambiance for brunch.
Early on a weeknight and not very crowded. Our service was very good! Petite filet was perfect and delicious! We will be back for sure :)
The servers kept serving a table of drunk people that were so loud and obnoxious it made for a horrible experience all together
By far the worst experience of service I've ever had. Did not get service for over an hour after we arrived. The table wasn't ready on time. The gift table I was assured we'd have was not ready. They ran out of small plates so we had to eat shared apps off our napkins. Then we got asked to leave after being there for 2 hours because of a time limit but we hadn't even been brought our checks yet. "Bottomless" mimosas were scarce, non alcoholic beverages were never refilled. Poor management, poor service. Incredibly disappointed in the experience, charged "required" gratuity for horrible service. Sad because this was supposed to be a good experience for a planned brunch for a friend.
Great staff, wonderful food, and heavenly beignets!
The best outside seating in Newport Beach. Literally on the sand. Downside is food is average.
Great food, service, and ambiance. We had a delightful time and everything was great. The decor and huge windows were perfect for a beautiful sunday morning. The food was delicious and the service we received was excellent. Looking forward to another visit.
Food was good but Spicy Mango Margarita is sweet.
Hosting a visit with my sister from Houston. Great location near the harbor, nice view of the boats and beach. Friendly and attentive service from the server and greeter. Food was great, too. A little noisy when it's full inside. Two kids, 4 and 1, were with us, and we went right after to the playground at Marina Park. Really nice, local restaurant.
Great spot right on the marina. My egg white omelette was delicious!
