Consistent with my experience over 30 years with Westside Chinese seafood restaurants, the food was hit and miss. Salt and pepper squid was very good, and the house special Dungeness crab was excellent. However, shrimp in garlic sauce was pedestrian and the "crispy duck" was anything but: it was deep fried yet soggy. I should have asked for some hoi sin sauce, which I used the next day at home and it made the duck much better. Service was friendly but very uneven. So, one's experience clearly will depend on the quality of the particular dishes one orders.
Highly recommend New Port Seafood restaurant for delicious cuisine. Very fresh ingredients prepared timely. This is a space that accommodates groups well. We had a good meal and the service was perfect.
Lobster is unusual and excellent. Likewise the Filet. Service was extraordinary - attentive and friendly. Not as busy as the San Gabriel location rendering it all the more pleasant.
Newport Seafood always is good for its House Special Lobster, Salt-and-Pepper Crab, Beef Loc Lac (French style) and Peasprouts (I still like them better than Peashoots). The steamed whole fish is great -- just do it with the simple way, so you get more diversity in the taste range. Likewise the breaded fish filet with basil is great good. But to order this much food requires a large group. The Beverly Hills restaurant is on Open Table and, thus, easier to accommodate with people on schedules.
Overpriced meals for a typical Chinese restaurant.
It was not difficult to find but difficult to park. It was a team lunch. The place was empty for lunch. The hostess was friendly and helpful. Our waitress was abysmal. Not helpful, bad attitude and unfriendly. Seriously, she was hands down the worst waitress in recent memory.
The food was good and the portion per price was very good. All that said I can't imagine returning because the waitress was that bad.
Great food. A bit salty.
Best Chinese food in the area. If you love Chinese food this is authentic and really good.
Food was delicious, especially the beef loc lac, and the service was outstanding
Always deliciously satisfying. A good value if you order
off the menu and do not get market priced items.
Excellent meal. Portion size too big to be able to finish it all
They were very accommodating to our baby, and service was excellent.
Food is very good, same quality if not better than the original one in San Gabriel.
Not crowded on Saturday Lunch and free parking along La Cienega . (Watch for Parking sign).
It is next door to Lawry's Prime Rib.
Take reservation, avoid waiting time.
Lobster was the bomb! Enjoyed their house special filet mignon-so tender!
Great place for dining out and having wonderful food
portions were large food was served as family style
Best Chinese food in the area. Authentic taste. Lobster is fantastic. But real test is do my Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Singapore friends eat here? A resounding yes. It's excellent Chinese.
Best Chinese food in this area. What we ordered - the tofu, salt and pepper squid, pea shoots, peking ribs, lobster (which is its specialty and the most expensive dish by far but worth it) and white rice. Delicious. We were two families - a total of seven people. One family - from Hong Kong and this is their go-to place in this area for Chinese food. Excellent. And many tables of Mainland, Hong Kong, Taiwanese, and American Chinese. Says it all. Try it. Staff were attentive and situation much more comfortable than further out locations.
Famous for lobster and crab, we were left disappointed when told that only one crab was available and had been taken. We were the second table for lunch on a Saturday. We ordered 2 lobsters to compensate, and one came out so late that we ended up taking it all home. The fact you don't have to wait to be seated is nice, but other than that it's better to go to the San Gabriel Valley location.
TERRIBLE service. Food was fine but SGV and Rowland locations are better. I would recommend those locations to friends but definitely not this one. Tables and seating are too close for comfort. Not a place I would recommend for special occasions.
The garlic chicken was excellent, worth very fresh ingredients and a great flavor. The dungeness crab was tough to eat and good but not excellent.
The clams were OK but nothing to get excited about. And the bak choy was fresh but uninspired with little flavor.
The space is weird and industrial. Brushed concrete with a lot of black and then red accents. Tables near each other in an open space with noise that carries.
It was an okay experience but didn't live up to hype.
Fantastic restaurant with fabulous food and great service. I try to dine here 2 times a week.
The menu has options for everyone tastes.
Special dishes were excellent. Pricey but worth the money. Would go again.
This is our second visit to the seafood restaurant. We went there specifically to try the crab, or the lobster. We had the crab and several side dishes. They were all great, delishious,and a pleasure to consume. And don't get me started on the portion size.
We've always going to Newport seafood for dinner and decide try for lunch. They had a number of dishes available for lunch special with a free soup but decided to order the regular menu since I love the fish maw soup. Always consistent and always good.
We took a coworker for her going away lunch and it was great. There were 4 of us and we ordered the lobster to share and we each picked a lunch special. There was enough food to share and it was very good. Would definitely go back again.
we were so excited when Newport opened and they have continued to deliver. They have some familiar Chinese takeout style food, but more importantly they have many of the special dished that makes the Monterey Park one so good. our menu today was: crab & fish maw soup, special Beef (luc luc), clams w/ basil and walnut shrimp.
The food, service, and location was great! And our server (Amber) was wonderful.
we found it as good as in the traditional newport.
we took 2 lobsters ...in black bean ,and ginger.
we dont have to travel so fun....yeii.
A true gem of a Chinese restaurant hiding in plain sight on Restaurant Row. The salt and pepper pork chop and the basil sliced fish are superb, though everything we've had has been excellent. We will be back.
