We've been coming to the Newport Beach branch for years (since 2014) and it's been a slow but steady decline to be honest. My parents have been avoiding FnO for this reason, but I convinced Mom to join my wife and I.
The food is now hit or miss and relatively overpriced for what you get, particularly given the local competition.
Today was the straw that broke the camel's back, my $41 steak came in at a leathery Sizzler medium well, after a 1.5 hour wait, I returned the plate whole (a first). It's official, they've ruined all 3 of my favorites, particularly the Tajine which was watery and overcooked a few weeks back. Why the Tajine?!
To their credit they paid for this (our last) meal, but I'd rather have paid them $100 to tell me to go elsewhere. They failed to deliver what we truly came to enjoy; a good meal with great company = priceless.
It took a lot of fails to get me here, and here we are.
Sorry guys, we won't be back, it's not worth the risk :/

The food, service, and ambience were all fantastic. The services provided by the professional management and staff are the main reasons that we keep coming back. The old world elegance is a rare thing, and we value their focus to make sure that everything about the dining experience is excellent. I highly recomend this restaurant.

One of my wife’s favorite restaurants
Requested patio near fireplace
Upon arrival we were informed there was an important private party.
Food is always good, but you pay a premium
Service was especially poor
Not even a fair value.

Food was good. Service was alright. Not sure exactly great but acceptable. Certainly not the place that I remember from a few years ago. Very empty even for a Wednesday. Having been to other OC places on Wednesdays this place was just not happening

This was our third visit, and it's just as good as ever. Lovely atmosphere in the garden room, attentive service and delicious food! We shared small plates, indulged in deserts, and had fun cocktails. We can hardly wait to return!

Multiple servers approached us so it was hard to tell whom to order from. Order was repeated back incorrectly to us. The paella had to be ordered with extra shrimp to feed two people (at that price?!) and the worst part was the mussels on the paella were incinerated, beyond cooked to stringy nothingness. I placed a $50 gift card in with my bill which the waiter “forgot” to deduct from the check. Then he said he actually used the wrong table’s check for my card, then brought six slips of paper and asked for my card back to do it “correctly.” Needless to say it was a cluster. Even with the $50 off I paid $118 for a cocktail, 2 glasses of wine, a tiny plate of paella, and two handfuls of vegetables.

The place is beautiful, but the food is questionable. F&O is in need of a new chef and menu. Not sure why they would send out dishes that were so ill-conceived. Surely, if they had taste tasted these items prior to adding to the menu or sending them out, they would have never served them. The beef carpaccio had the most odd of flavor combinations? I would say to keep the attempted "creative" aspect of your cuisine in check? To be honest, we did not have a main course (after the apps experience) so potentially those could fare better? Also, served us a glass of badly corked wine - and replaced if of course.

Do not waste your time and money at this establishment. it is also very $$$. An announcement of a new chef and menu could change that recommendation... We shall see...??

Restaurant was nice and the food was good. However our experience was disappointing as our waitress was overbearing, pushy and rolled her eyes at us when we did not agree with her recommendations. Overall our girls dinner was overshadowed by this poor experience.

Our server was knowledgeable and made wonderful recommendations. We loved everything except for the one thing we had wanted to try (that was not one of suggested ideas) and it was the cauliflower. For some reason it take bitter to us, but or server let us get something else, and that was delicious.

Chef needs to learn how to make eggs over easy. We got them and they were almost hard boiled sent back and the second batch was just a bit better but we didn’t want to send back as I had finished my meal. Great service and atmosphere
