The food was not that great. Seemed very bland, but the people were nice and quick to help. Ambience was beautiful and we were lucky it was not packed. I would come here again for maybe just drinks!

This was one of the worst experiences ever. The hostess/waitress was not friendly. After a glimpse of the menu, we decided to only have drinks. They were not good. First time I have ever had a gin mixed drink and didn’t want to finish it. They also didn’t pour a full 6oz of wine for my girlfriend, even though we paid for it, and I overheard a conversation with the hostess/waitress at the bar stating they had no idea what wine they had ready to pour. It was absolutely awful and I will never come back to this establishment. Poor experience and even worse service. We left after 1 drink each of us.

I hosted a party of 9 on NYE which can be a hectic night for restaurants. Nevertheless the staff at Pacific Hideaway were on point and even allowed me to increase the size of my party that evening. Overall, a great experience!

We enjoyed the food and had good service, but the room was quite cold due to sliding doors being open with 50 degree temperatures outside.

The outside deck would be great in warmer weather with views of Huntington Beach water and if no fog, probably Catalina.

Was really excited for oysters because they had it on the menu but to our surprise there weren’t any (Hmmm) I asked for a straw four times and was never brought a straw until I asked a different waitress who just so happened to want to check on us if we needed anything. The menu options are slim to none with small portions, the drink itself wasn’t the best but the way it was decorated was interesting. There was a party a few tables over who brought their dog (no biggie) but we watched as the dog itself was given water before they even sat down and was served more times than us the duration of our dinner. The salmon was great, I tried muscles but wasn’t very impressed. The ambiance is great but everything else not so much. Another place off MY bucket list but won’t plan on going back.

Our dinners were cold, and there was no choice for the degree of doneness for the prime rib or choice of white or dark meat turkey. I did not care for the seasoning of the turkey.

Waitress Destini was AMAZING. Fun and personable. Fun helpful server assistant also. Hostess however, not friendly. Food was cold when served and I had to send back, I felt bad, I’ve never had to send food back anywhere before. Second time served was slightly better but not Hot. I didn’t want to send back twice. View outdoors looking at the ocean was amazing. Alot of confusion about parking and validation- not communicated well at all. The first restaurant I have ever been to in a hotel that did not discount valet parking with food purchase. Host sent me to front desk, confused. Front desk was then confused and then they sent me to valet also confused. The Drink was amazing. If I do come back it will be to stop in for a drink only.

I have eaten here many times (as a hotel guest and when staying in a local airbnb). Service is always kind and helpful. The atmosphere is fantastic- right next to all the action yet surprisingly quiet and lovely. The "case of the munchies" dessert is well worth the wait. Really lovely place and cool vibe and bar.

Food was delicious, the place was SO cute and completely open air which we loved, and our waiter was just the coolest guy that made sure to make my sister’s birthday special. Also, parking in the CVS parking structure next door was super easy. Not sure why more reviewers didn’t mention it.

I had an amazing experience at Pacific Hideaway. The food was delicious and had a wide range of items to choose from. You could pick something lite to eat such as a salad or something in the heavier side such as a steak. The ambiance was relaxing and the restaurant is in walking distance to the beach. I enjoyed my experience and would definitely be returning again for another brunch day.

When there for the first time a week and a half ago… was fabulous. Told everyone in Newport about it. Was going to be my new favorite spot! But not now.
My female server, long blonde hair, was not accommodating or attentive at all.
I asked for a craft cocktail and she told me I couldn’t deviate from the menu. I asked her if she could ask the bartender because the male server from the previous week was super accommodating and said of course. There was only two other tables in the restaurant, they weren’t doing anything and obviously had time.
Then she served cocktails to the other table, then ours last.
Guacamole was not at all the same as the previous week. Pineapple was maybe mixed in a bit, looked like it was scraped from another plate.
Tacos weren’t big like last time, and the beef was almost all fat.
Hamburger ok.
Pad Thai, tiny frozen shrimp and no flavor or color.
Our server never came over again to check on us and we asked the bus boy, who was accommodating for hot sauce and more water.
I had to get up around find our server to bring our cheque. I had to remind her 10 minutes later by motioning it.
So so disappointing.
An expensive, bland, disappointing experience!!!
