So I was not aware of this place until I saw the menu on Newport Beach Restaurant week so totally worth a try. We went for lunch since I liked that menu better. 3 courses for $25, well worth it!! I don't usually think of going to a hotel to have lunch or dinner but this one was worth trying.
We came on a saturday afternoon at 1 and I think we might have been the only ones in the restaurant. Made me a little nervous but it was great. Service was great and we weren't rushed, lol.
For appetizers we got 1 of each, the hawaiian poke was fresh and great presentation. It also tasted great. I liked the sauce and wished there was a little more. I also got sirachi to add a little kick. It had big eye tuna, roasted nori, maui onion, scallions, avocado, edamame, seaweed salad all on top of a crispy rice. Nom! Caramelized Brussel Sprouts were also fresh and cooked a la dante. The kumquat added a unique taste.
We both got the spiny lobster grilled cheese which we weren't what to expect but it had a decent amount of lobster in there! Very well done!! The sandwich itself could be found at Slapfish, lol. Absolutely delicious!
For dessert, we each got 1 of each. I really enjoyed my kumquat cheesecake. It was not overly sweet. It was light and the fruits added a nice combination. The balsamic reduction was very nice. My friend's nutella crisp was huge! It was a meal in itself. Also very good and generous.
Soo pleased with our choice today! If you get a chance at all, go and give it a try!
