Our server was Jeff - the evening Jeff - and he was absolutely amazing. Three diners in our party of 4 are gluten free, he was able to assist without stopping to ask the kitchen over and over again. He offered brilliant insights and recommendations, and made our experience all around fantastic. It's difficult to go out to dinner with Celiac, and I felt very at ease in Jeff's capable hands. The manager came by to check on us, as did the kitchen manager. Everything was top notch. We will absolutely be back!

The food is so fresh and you feel that coastal vibe with the seafood, wait staff, and decor. I will definitely come back again and again! The service was excellent from the valet to the waiter/s and the food is delicious!

It was pricy, even for Newport Beach, Expensive for the amount of food and value, nice place, and nice people, just don’t think people will go back after one time.

Went for Fathers Day Brunch with our 2 kids - unfortunately they have a very limited kids menu and it is very expensive - $25 for one pancake and fruit. I ordered the chicken and waffle - terrible. They pre-cook (sous vide) the check before frying - giving the chicken a weird boiled taste - I also did not like the way they fried the chicken - it came out stringy and tough on the outside. The waffles were heavy and dry. Such a disappointment. We will not be returning.

Had two brunch and one diner meals there. Both great. We were staying at Lido House so convenience was high. Mimosa cart was on point. The truffle fries are addictive.

I cant say enough good things about our experience here. from Cocktails, to apps , mains and dessert!

we have the lobster cups and salmon tartar . both were presented beautifully and were wonderful. The lobster was fresh and flavorful the Salmon tartar came smoked in a Bell jar, which was such a perfect subtle smoky hint.

We followed up with the Halibut, my wife loved it again cooked perfectly and had the petite filet on a bed of Cream -less corn - great pairing and cooked perfectly (ordered med rare). finished with a deconstructed vanilla bean cheese cake! Bravo! it was stunning on the plate and tasted even better.

Service was very friendly and attentive. Jeffery was our main server - and he was exceptional. perfect mix of friendly, advice offering and professional. the manager came by and was very sincere in her request for our opinion.

Yes - not cheap. but a good example of you get what you pay for. we will be back here for sure. as I want to try the Charcuterie plate that I saw go by, it had something flaming on the plate and looked amazing!

The entire experience was wonderful! From the host stand to valet, every interaction was genuine and welcoming. Server, Lindsey guided us through the entire menu and connected with us as a friend! Every dish that came out had unique flavors that made each bite a surprise. I had the garden gimlet cocktail to start which is the perfect mix of a “detox/retox” as it tasted like a healthy juice! Props to the kitchen for the scallops...perfect combination of flavors and textures. Morgan, the restaurant was fully engaged ensured we had a great time! Highly recommended.

We have been to the Mayor‘s table several times before and not had great experiences so we decided to try it again. We ordered some appetizers to include the charcuterie tray. I asked for extra pickled vegetables on the charcuterie tray that is $24 they charged us six dollars for extra vegetables that never arrived. When we ordered our dinner some of us wanted to have an alternate vegetable their answer was a simple no. If that’s not bad enough when we ordered dessert we wanted to add a scoop of ice cream to it and were told no. Even if you wanted to pay for anything extra they are extremely inflexible. Last summer they did not have dinner service at the bar and we stopped going because of that. Now they serve dinner at the bar. I hope it won’t take another year for management to understand that while chef driven kitchens are great when the chef makes restrictions that make diners unhappy and do not cater to the clients wishes business will suffer.
On a separate note the valet parking even after validation after our $600 dinner parking was still $34 dollars.
Not sure if this is because Marriot is now running this hotel or if they simply don’t care what their clients think about the experience.

We had a brunch and chose to sit outside. Main boulevard was next to seating area and was a bit loud from traffic and congestion. Next time will sit inside. Food was very good and our waiter was terrific. Hotel was cute but caters to a younger crowd.

I loved the ambience and the service. I was not thrilled with the food selections. I had the hamburger. The meat was excellent and very well cooked. But just getting a patty, cheese, onion and bun with french fries didn't seem like a very good deal to me for $18.

First visit and we loved it. Great ambiance and service. The food was delicious. The portions could be a bit more substantial, not so much the main ingredient but the accompanying items. However, we will definitely eat there again. :)

The food was delicious. We went with our waitress suggestions and tried a little bit of several dishes by sharing. The halibut was perfect and surprisingly, the asparagus was the best ever (don't know what they did to it but it was truly perfect)

Went for Easter brunch. If you don't mind paying $55 for some salad, pancakes, one mini donut and one-half deviled egg then this is the place. Food was good, but not outstanding. Selection for brunch was poor and don' bother asking for more of anything because it isn't happening. Table for 6 and we received 5 mini-donuts (size of a small packaged Hostess donut) . Asked for more, received a look that could kill and never received any more.
