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!

We love the ambiance! However the food wasn’t good. Too expensive for what you get.

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.

Breakfast with family in Newport Beach - and couldn't have chosen a better spot. The ambience was lovely and the service straight up local. We all enjoyed the breakfast menu, I think a couple of us got the steak and eggs and said it was the best steak and eggs they'd ever had! Highly recommend.

We chose the restaurant to celebrate my wife’s birthday because we had heard the seafood was excellent and the ambiance pleasant. The ambiance did not disappoint but the food quality was uneven. We both enjoyed our Duffy Boat salad and my wife enjoyed her salmon. I ordered the halibut which came very dry and salty. In fact, it reminded me of the Friday white fish served in grammar school. I would have preferred the Thursday hamburger. Our server Miriam was very pleasant and attentive though she wasted no time retrieving the bill after I had signed. Since the food is very much over priced, perhaps she was anxious to cash out her tip.

But the real downer was upon exiting and being hit with the parking bill. You cannot self park so you are forced to valet which is fine if the price is paid to the kids providing the service. Unfortunately, the hotel hits you up for $8 or $12 if you forget to validate. Sorry, guys. Nothing left for you. Needless to say, there are far too many good restaurants in Newport, most with free parking, to bother returning to this one.

We had a group of five girls celebrating a birthday. We enjoyed the peach salad to start. Our server was so sweet and spent lots of time giving us suggestions as we were eating family style. The lobster came with gnocchi that were large and doughy. The steak was so tasty and perfect for sharing. The potatoes with the steak were hearty and flavorful! The scallops were perfectly cooked. I would highly recommend the peach pie for dessert. We just needed more ice cream with it. Overall we enjoyed a wonderful meal and attentive service! We will definitely be back!
