Great brunch spot for a sunny Saturday afternoon at the docks. Ordered a bottle of sparkling to share between two of us, which was decently priced. I've always enjoyed my visits to LBW and will be back again.

We ended up here for a late lunch on a Monday, so a completely different vibe than evenings or weekends. We were one of maybe 3 tables in the place. All four meals were just Ok - the burrata salad had a large amount of burrata with stone fruit pieces under it. It wasn't super flavorful or seasoned. The fish tacos were overly seasoned but probably the best thing ordered. Ahi salad was very bland. Service was very nice, but a little slow (though I think it may be more from the kitchen being slow that time of day). If I go back it will be in the evening when there are more people and I'd order the charcuterie and cheese and have some wine. I'm sure that's where they shine is the bottles...

Everyone could not have been nicer! With our reservation,We requested a patio table. Because we went early, ( got hungry early living 3 time zones away )
They were still able to honor the request. Food: healthy, light and delectable. Our server suggested the perfect wine pairing!

I really enjoyed the location. Great place to eat and have a drink on a nice day. The waitress was great, very friendly. The food was really good. We ate the Duck Breast, Pork Buns and Blue Fin Crudo. All was delicious, but the Blue Fin was a little fishy. Fresh fish isn't fishy. Other than that, we enjoyed our dinner and would definitely come back and refer friends.

Came for a Saturday lunch with a group of friends & loved our afternoon. Stared some apps - cheese & charcuterie platter (delicious) and the hummus platter - would definitely recommend! Then shared a burger and salad- all perfect. Loved being right on the water. Can’t wait to go back

The patio is quaint? and we had a lovely seat in the corner (just as I had requested on the reservation). I’m a wine drinker, my friends prefer beer, so we were all happy with the variety of both. The cheese and charcuterie board was our starter which had a good mix of soft and hard cheeses and cured meats. We shared the pork belly bao buns (good but not amazing); chicken sandwich and fries were really good; and the French toast which served as dessert was delicious. The prices are in the Newport Beach expected range. Would definitely return as the location, service, and food made for a wonderful Sunday brunch.

Excellent meal with wonderful service! While the dock area in Lido has become crowded with a number of restaurants, this place is by FAR the best in consistently providing the highest quality of food. Everything on this menu is fresh, original and delicious. Cocktails are phenomenal, the wine list is solid, and beer selections on tap excellent! It’s great for lazy brunch on weekend and nice dinners. Offers the best in excellent waterfront location and amazing food!

I went there with my friend to celebrate her birthday. The service was nonexistent. I had to go get my own salt and pepper, because she didn't come to the table after she dropped off the food to ask if we needed anything or how the food was. The restaurant was not that busy. Anytime I needed anything I had to go into the restaurant to ask for it. We were on the patio. I would never go back there again.

We came to celebrate a birthday party of 8. Our waiter did not get our drink orders correct. It took a LONg time to get our drinks. We ordered appetizers the food was good our favorite was the cauliflower appetizer. He took a long time to take our dinner orders, then forgot 2 orders completely. The 2 people were waiting while the rest of us ate. We
Had to ask for our table to be bused. The petite filet
above average. No compensation the forgetting 2 entree orders. We had to remind him that we were celebrating a birthday. He brought out 8 spoons and I am not kidding half a scoop of ice cream! There are way too many good restaurants with conscientious service in Newport I will not be back it was that bad. We started at 7:00 pm did not “finish” until 9:45 due to the delays in service.
