Love this location however the last two visits the food is moderately warm at best they keep bringing dishes cold to the table which makes no sense since the kitchen is right there ,, love the ambience ,, great service great drinks but the food has definitely taken a step down in the last few years
Great times!! We enjoyed being there!!!
Everyone was amazing to us!!
Always a fun place to dine! We didn’t bring my mother in law who LOVE La Cave and hope to have her on our return!
1st visit. If you love ambient lighting, this restaurant is for you. What GREAT service too! Drinks, salad, bread, entrees... everything came out so quickly. What a nice surprise. This place is a gem in disguise.
The food is amazing. Old school vibe is excellent and everyone in Service was phenomenal. Can't wait to return.
Old school, rat pack vibe. If your alter ego is Sinatra, you will love this place. The service is outstanding and they pour a mean martini (shaken not stirred)! Give it a try and I guarantee you will be back!
Exceptional service and so much fun thanks to the live music.
Excellent food and good service. This is dining the old fashion way and is a gem.
We enjoyed a wonderful dinner. The food, service and cocktails were all great!
Way too loud, super difficult to hold conversation. Steak was cooked correctly but crab legs were poor quality and over cooked. Price point too high for quality and environment.
This local eatery has a lot to offer including old school ambiance, great service, and a 50 year history. Let’s be honest, you come here for the experience; you can get a good steak all over the OC. La Cav makes you feel like you’ve walked back in time. Enjoy the nostalgic flair....you will want to come back!
Very expensive, not a great value on the dollar, $180 with tip for 2 with no wine, 3 drinks, no appetizers - too me for the experience and quality way to expensive and I am not a cheap person.
This was our first time at La Cave and we have a fantastic experience. Staff was so friendly. We also enjoyed our waitress sharing the restaurant history. We loved the ambiance, live music . . it felt like we were in NYC. We weren’t made to feel rushed at all but that we were there for an experience. The food was excellent. A perfect night out.
La Cave is a wonderful retro steakhouse with Sinatra and table conversations filling the room. The food is outstanding and the drinks are better. It’s a great place for a date or a good meal with friends.
Loved the old school vibe, music that was great for all generations and the fantastic service!
LaCave is a throw back to another era. Love this place. Food is always good. Service is always first rate. There was entertainment (one man band) during dinner and he was great. Never ever disappointed at La Cave.
The service was outstanding. Their “signature dishes “ were less than desirable and the steaks were salty. Very pricey for what we got.
First time. Absolutely loved the food and vibe. Clam chowder was the best ever. Will be back soon.
Wonderful experience. Service, food, drinks, ambiance all fantastic!
Strong drinks and delicious food! Its an underground steakhouse, cool experience.
Servers were excellent and the food was great. Loved the Friday night music.
I think it would be easy to give "outstanding" across the board, but I must be honest... Overall it was a real treat and I can see why all the accolades over the years. The only thing I would say was that I've had the pleasure of having over the top amazing steaks and I think they could update their "sides" a bit. For me, I also like my Caesar to have more zing to it, as I would give it a B+ grade. I will certainly go back again and just know what to expect. Even though the atmosphere is a bit dated, that's part of the ambience and history. In my opinion, they are sooo close to being amazing and certainly worth going to time and time again.
Excellent as always
Great meal. Nice booth in the bar area.
Great as always but no spacing of tables or adjustment of number of people
Awesome place as always
We were so happy to be back for dinner. My wife and I have missed dining or have a cocktail at the bar. Glad to say that things did not change much and everything is back to normal from what we remember after so long. Service was great as usual and the drinks were as bold as before.
Went for birthday and loved the food. There were 7 of us and everyone was very happy
Food was great! Glad they’re still in biz
The food is fantastic and love the atmosphere and live music. Service could be improved but that is probably more on the individual than the restaurant itself. Good to see them back open!
I would recommend.
La Cave has been our family staple for 55 years, from when we first moved to Newport Beach. It is still an incredible restaurant! It is nice to see how it has evolved over the years, to continue to remain fresh and relevant! As always the meal was incredible, and the service, top flight!
Service was great. Food was delicious. It was a a bit dark to read the menu the candle could be bigger.
There is a reason that this restaurant has been here for 59 years. If you want one of the many new glitzy steakhouses that have sprung up this is not for you. But if you appreciate an old school style steakhouse with a simple menu of great steaks, this is for you!!!
La Cave never disappoints ! The best steak and seafood in town in old in world atmosphere. Our go-to time after time.
Such as awesome time! Me and my boyfriend loved it and we will recommend it to anyone to go there for a perfect date.
Loved the live entertainment as well
We requested a booth and received one! Thanks so much!
It was a perfect Valentine's evening.
The food was good. The ambiance was very welcoming. The staff and owner were extra nice and friendly. They made sure our water and alcohol were always full. The owner gave us an education about the history of the restaurant and sat us at John Wayne's favorite table. We will definitely come back and already promoted the place to several of my friends and family.
Horrible. This place is CLOSED. Out OF BUSINESS
