I surprised my boyfriend for his birthday, he isn't very picky, but I wanted to take him somewhere that checked all of my boxes, i.e. ambience, food quality, price point. I spent a little over 200 for the two of us, BUT, I ordered us a bottle of wine, so that offset the price of the food. Overall, I am very satisfied with the service and presentation/quality of the food. I would definitely come back perhaps for brunch, I would keep it to an intimate/small party though.

Walking into this restaurant, you would have high expectations...the location, the decor, and friendly reception would lead you to believe you were about to have a lovely experience. You would be wrong. If you want overpriced, bland, and pretentious food, this is where you should go. Starting with the drinks...if your waiter doesn't even know what half the ingredients are, perhaps you should simplify. And then, when the drink comes out, it literally has little to no taste. Why add so many ingredients when you can't taste them. Then for the salad (Duffy Boat). The mixed greens looked fresh and lovely, but there was supposed to be goat cheese and blackberries with an ice wine vinaigrette. The berries turned out to be frozen and in such small quantities, you couldn't even get the flavor of them in any bite. The nuts and vinaigrette were non-existent and the goat cheese was hidden in the middle of three slimy cucumbers. For dinner, I had the branzino, which was the most flavorful, but only because it was VERY generously salted. Overall, for $200 with 2 entrees, a split salad and three drinks, I would definitely NOT return.

My husband and I found this gem on a drive through Newport Beach and are so happy we stopped by for Sunday brunch. The restaurant was chic, the food was delicious, and the service was impeccable! We will definitely be going back and recommending to friends!

The food was actually pretty terrible. I expected with the price tag that the food would be much better than it was. It was a waste of $130 for just 2 people. The lobster and tortellini were such small portions and the quality of food was not deserving more than a 2 star, they just made it look fancy. I was pretty disappointed in the food since it’s such a great location, the staff we fine, and the ambience was nice.

Our friends live on Lido Island and had a bad experience when they were first opened, they were skeptical about going with us but we were so glad they did because it was a wonderful experience. They said they would definitely frequent more often!!Thank you!

Meh ambiance was like The Water Grill but not as nice. Grilled Seafood chowder was more like cheap broth with some fish and vegetable. Strawberry’s shortcake was meh too with a Biscuit ???! Instead of a nice light angel food or something similar. Service was just ok.
Was a tad disappointing.

I wish our waitress would have given us a spoon to stir cream and sugar in our coffee, we used our forks. Our food was amazing the pancakes should have been served with a side of syrup. They were s’mores pancakes too dry to eat solo. *just our opinion. The omelets and potatoes were cooked to perfection.

I went to create a special environment for a Christmas brunch with my mother but we are vegetarian vegan and there really was not a lot of options on the menu also there was a funny smell I think from the eggs and the meat that was in there which is something I’m sensitive to. Either way it wasn’t waiter that had a really great service and he made up for all of that by being friendly and helpful and trying to make great suggestions. I would definitely return there again but maybe just for coffee.

Visiting from Austin. Stumbled onto this gem and wow it was amazing. Safe for GF’ers like us. Lindsay was the absolute best. She is a rockstar and I hope we convinced her to move to Austin. We definitely don’t need anymore Californians to move to Austin but we will take just 1 more with her.

Limited menu choices and the portions were relatively small.

Ambiance and decor was more like a higher-end coffee shop. Server was friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu.

Prices were a bit steep too. Plus, they charged $16 extra to add chicken to our salad...very inflated.

Beautiful hotel & restaurant but the Topside Roof Deck was off the charts! What a view at sunset! Must do if you visit the OC! Unbelievable experience & ambience! Highly recommend. We ate dinner at Mayor’s Table in the restaurant. The food was very good - 4 out of 5, the service was a 5 out of 5 & the ambience a 5 out of 5. We are definitely returning.
