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 an amazing experience! Our waitress was wonderful, she was very friendly and gave us a free dessert because we were celebrating my college decision. On top of that the food was delicious and the decor and ambiance of the restaurant was perfect. We’ll definitely be back!

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!

It would be easy to assume that a $62 steak would be ample in size, trimmed well and cooked to perfection. Never assume. It was a very quiet time at the restaurant. Staff literally looked bored, especially the cooks that were easily visible in the open glass enclosed kitchen.

Sunday dinner was an overall excellent selection with excellent value- salad, short rib, polenta, dessert for $35. Halibut and peach pie were also delicious. The server knew the menu well and made excellent recommendations on wine.

Our plates were truly inspired works of art. Service was on-point & perfectly matched the energy of our party. Senior F&B Manager A.J. & his stellar team at TOPSIDE is a force to be reckoned with. The understated elegance and flawless execution of service reveals a deep sense of care & delight in what they do.

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!
