The Winery Restaurant and Wine Bar - Newport Beach
I loved the food and the service was great. Had a little trouble finding parking, but other than that I would definitely go again.
Great service, and love the ambiance.
Date night with the wife. Food was good. Priced for the location. Great service and took our shellfish allergy very seriously. Cool new spot in Newport.
The music was a bit loud for any type of discussion. There was a screw up on our order, but the manager was very quick to remove that and other items from the ticket.
Service was horrible. Manager was on her phone the entire time
I went to BHC once for a date and it was a 10/10 experience. This time I wanted to take my family and some friends for a special going away party. My 58 year old parents loved the venue, the food, and the drinks as much as we did. Special place with something great going on every night.
Amazing food. Drinks were the bomb.
We enjoyed our dinner at Boathouse Collective. Wish there were more menu choices.
Our waitress, Sam, a young lady, was wonderful and fun to boot. The whole meal was unique, flavorful and most enjoyable.
Loud but fun. Service a bit slow.
Just a suggestion. Any of your bowl meals should be served in a bowl, not a plate. Second time we have been there and our bowl meal was on a plate. Would like the flavors to combine..,a bit disappointed
Been to Boathouse Collective many times, love the Ahi and chicken katsu (?) apps! Drinks are done right, had boathouse sour. Always live music which can definitely make it a challenge to carry conversations. But, love this place, cool vibe.
We finally got to go to the Boathouse Collective. Oh my gosh! I'll start with the service. Cole was amazing and truly make our experience top notch. The food was so incredibly good and fresh. I'm dying to go back.
Out cocktails took a long time to get to the table. Our appetizer got to the table before the drinks. I had a fish dish and the fish was very dry. When the server asked how everything was, I told her and she just said, oh okay, and walked away. I didn't want to make a big deal so I just decided to eat some of my boyfriends steak. She didn't offer to get me anything in replacement, and didn't take it off the bill. I think I might have had two bites.
This is definitely a cocktail place, not a dinner place!
Fun casual night.
Really good vibe, food, service, and live music !!
Great food and good vibes.
Great space and vibe with unbelievable attentive service and excellent food. Had a great time hanging with friends and enjoying the live music.
I have tried going here many times. But my timing was off. It was always Sunday and they are closed on Sunday 😟 but this time I looked on open table for a reservation around 6:30 and low and behold Boathouse had one!! Super excited met up with our friends no kids! There was a band! They were fun! Good cover band!! I will definitely be going back! We shared the ribeye 🥩 yummy and they gave us this sweet potato with some miso something sauce it was to die for!!! Boathouse Collective little hidden gem in our lovely city Costa Mesa!
Good food, good live entertainment. Their tap beer selection was excellent too.
The food is great, the drinks are great, the atmosphere is great, the service is horrible. I've visited close to 10 times in the last couple of years, hoping the service would pick up each and every time, and it hasn't. It's some of the worst service you'll find in OC, which is very frustrating... which is too bad because other than that it's a very cool spot.
Nice place to spend an evening with friends. Good food, good service, good band playing and interesting decor. Had a great time.
Great find! Cool place with live music.
Great cocktails, maybe a bit too sweet but didn’t stop me from having several.
Food (salmon, filet bits, and rib eye) was fabulous especially, especially the rib eye!
We’ll definitely go back when I’m in town.
My friends and I went here while we we’re visiting because it was so well reviewed. I wanted so badly to enjoy this, but it was such a disappointment. It’s very hip in how it is styled, and they do have room for live music, though there wasn’t any the Saturday night we went. The food was overpriced for the portions, and just not good. My friend got the fish and it was just gross. The only exception being the burger my sister got, but you can get a burger anywhere. The server we had was absentee. No water refills, no how is your food, just what do you want and here’s your check. We were trying to order more wine and couldn’t because he simply never came back - a food runner brought us our orders so we didn’t even see him then. To add insult to injury he split our check incorrectly (we just let it go and paid the split as-is) and it was stupid loud for such a small space. We won’t come back; such a letdown.
Off the beaten path but a good find. Vibe was great; food and service as well. The owner Clayton even came by our table to introduce himself and welcome us. Recommend the salmon.
Great night for a friends birthday get together.
Service was great and food incredible.
We had a wonderful night. Food was unique and service great. Look forward to going back
Love this place. The food is amazing and the staff is great. Live music is awesome!
Everything was great, including the service. Personally, I thought the Jidori Chicken was wonderful. The Carrot Cake was also delicious. We will certainly be back.
This was our second visit to the Boathouse Collective. Once again, the food was amazing and the atmosphere is perfect. Our waitress was friendly and interactive. Her service was exceptional! We will definitely be back again.
Amazing waiter, cool atmosphere, and my meal was amazing - grilled artichoke appetizer and scallop special. We met a very interesting couple at our table making it a truly memorable evening.
We were seated in a back room away from everything. That should be disclosed on the app before you book.
We had not been here for a few years but really like the updates and changes. Shared tables and great music.
This started with us waiting 30 min to get our drinks and went downhill from there.
It was amazing, great food, great music and perfect for a birthday get together!
Friend’s 40th birthday but we were totally rushed out ☹️
Had a recent visit to the Boathouse Collective for a great meal, had the catch of the day. Yellowtail fish with a sticky rice side. Enjoyed the live music of our dear friends LMT Connection hailing from Niagara Falls,Canada. Can’t wait to come back for a visit to Costa Mesa. Beautiful place. I would highly recommend.
Went with a group to see LMT Connection (phenomenal group from Canada) two nights in a row. Ordered the Steak Tips both nights... they were that good! Yum! Service was amazing too. Looking forward to our next visit
We went out for dinner and drinks. Never disappointed. Definitely will refer it to family and friends.
