Lido Bottle Works
American cuisine . Sophisticated, yet casual and approachable, LBW is
an unexpected surprise with an ambiance only those who have visited can describe.
The tomato bisque was the best I have "ever" had.
The Lido catch tasted terrible. Sadly, it was the worst $32 I have ever spent.
Went early, so nice and quiet!
Good value, nice people & good food. Vegetable platter delicious.
One you my favorite restaurants. I love the gem salad and vegetable plate.
Excellent ambience, right by the water, small trendy yet casual restaurant, food was delicious, presentation and service was wonderful, exceptional meal.
Excellent food, and service. Love the atmosphere!
Honestly food this time was just average. The best was the Beef stroganoff.
Great spot !!!!
Service and food was amazing...
I love this restaurant. Everything from the views, the staff, and the incredible food makes this place a must experience.
Food was very good. Wine is very pricey. Much pricier than anticipated. Price was $200 for four people without tip and we didn’t order much food...only two salads, one burger, and one entree. But with wine at $18/glass.... the bill adds up fast. If you expect to pay $80 pp for dinner than you’re fine. If you think you’re gonna pay $40 pp you’re way off.
Amazing food, great patio. Delicious deserts and attentive service!
Sunday afternoon lunch. I had the hash which was phenomenal and my husband had steak and fries. Service by Sarah was fantastic. Can’t wait to return and try the chicken sandwich.
Lovely place to celebrate! Bring a jacket as you know about our cool breezes
not my type of restaurant. Was told everything was grown on-site,...but how can there be no tomatos??
Also, where did the beef come from or the duck ??
The wine pairing dinner event was amazing! Each dish presented was beautifully presented, amazingly fresh and high quality. Attention to detail was apparent throughout the meal! Chef Amy was awesome, explaining each course! And the Alpha Omega wine was perfectly paired with each course!
I love the ambiance of Lido Bottle Works! The decor has a natural elegance, and the service is personal. We decided to try the November 6th, Five-course Wine Pairing. Chef Amy’s exquisite dishes were served with an amazing selection of Alpha Omega wines. One of my favorites was the Quail which was paired with AO Rose, 2018. I highly recommend this beautiful little restaurant you’ll find tucked away in Newport Harbor!
Our server was great and the wine and apps were very good, but it ended there. I ordered the catch of the day for $32 and I had to cut my fish with a knife! Partner ordered an over-priced steak. It was okay. And, we had to wait 45 minutes between apps and main course. Not okay. That said: the place is great; amazing location but that's not enough to get us to return.
Everything was amazing!
We have eaten here at least 5 times, and every time it has been great service, and great food. This time had very disappointing service. Our waitress made us feel rushed the whole time we were there. It was clear from the moment we sat down that she wanted to rush us through our meal. Very disappointing. The steak was great, the pork dish was disappointing, but all of all appetizers was great.
Had lunch there and were very disappointed overall in the food quality. Every seafood dish was exceedingly strong in odor. The construction of the dishes did not make sense. Nothing was good enough to ever go back for. The wine menu listed a wine we lived only to find out it was the wrong year. Not impressed.
Had a great time. There were 6 of us and they sat us outside at a BIG table. (Our of the 6, I’m the only local).
Standouts were the short rib croquettes, squid ink pasta with crab and honestly, the salad!
Nice wines, great views, and our server took great care of us.
We were asked to move tables in the middle of our meal which totally killed our date night vibe. We were moved to a terrible table right by the waitstand and kitchen- it was so noisy and busy in the kitchen.
We ended up leaving after we finished our appetizers and going to fable and spirit.
Food was okay
This is some of the best food I ever had. The portions were perfect and though pricey, each item ordered was worth it!
Good spot for drinks with a date. Fairly noisy so need a loud voice to talk.
Good food great vibes excellent service
Waitress was horrible. Very rude and rushed us the entire time. Had a passive aggressive attitude throughout the whole time. Food was poor and this was for a friends birthday. I called ahead of time to place an order for a dessert so that she could blow out some candles on her birthday and they completely forgot about it. I don’t normally write reviews after reservations but I am very disappointed with this dining experience.
Products are excellent. True farm to table restaurant. Quality is really high and the flavors were great. My favorite is the Burrata plate. We were 3 people around the table and we shared 5 plates (salty) and try 2 desserts.
It was a bit noisy but overall we enjoyed the night. Good choice of wines for ok price range.
I would go again and recommend.
Great service and amazing food. Always a great experience.
Just two good friends enjoying time together!
Our food was cold in our server was rude. It was an unfortunate experience!
good burrata salad, added salmon, but overall not worth the money.
Food was quite good and creative........ but waited for nearly half an hour for last item we'd ordered...... we left before it arrived. The server said 3 or 4 times that our food would be right up.......obviously poor communication there.
Another successful Beer Dinner event at Lido Bottle Works. From the delicious food creations of Chef Amy to the over the top service of Christina, Morgan and Brannigan...everyone in our group could not stop talking about attending the next event too.
It was wonderful as always!
The food was delicious apart from toasted salmon dish, we would go back but order differently...
The menu was primarily tapas but we went for an entree to split and a couple statutes. Our hostess was wonderful. The biggest reason for a 4 star is that the noise was absolutely horrible. I know little can be done but it was really difficult to relax. I wonder if the tables being so tight could be to blame
We had a great time sharing wonderful food while catching up with old friends
