All was awesome except for the menu. I think the old Sapphire was much much better. We had oysters for starter. They were super small. The main meal was average at best with huge portions, not something I prefer. Food presentation was below average. Little pricy for that quality food.

On a more positive note. The ambience and service were very good.

We ended up having drinks and eating appetizers for dinner, after trying the duck meatballs we were hooked as they were delicious. It was just what I was hoping for on our date.

My wife and I really enjoyed our first dinner at this establishment. I had Cornish Hen which was overdone just a smidge (hence 4 stars instead of 5). My wife's Filet Mignon was perfect. Service was outstanding. Really enjoyed the sunset during dinner. It was my birthday and a server brought out an ice cream dessert w/ candle -- did not expect that. Will not hesitate making a return visit.

Service was super super super slow. Had to ask for our server several times. Got filet’s and she never came
To see if they were correct. 2+ hour dinner is too long to have to wait. Loved everything else.

This restaurant has a beautiful view of the ocean on their patio. They are very Covid conscious with hand sanitizers everywhere. Three of us went for lunch. We ordered the pork ribs, healthy egg white scramble with fruit and the vegetables with farro. Everything was very flavorful and delicious! Our server, Jose, was excellent. The service from checking in, serving, chef and management could not have been better.

A very disappointing experience. We had high expectations with the new ownership. Food mediocre--bland and unimaginative (e.g., mac and cheese in a cast iron pan tastes little different than from the frozen food department of a supermarket; the sauce and the mushrooms in the duck meatballs was pretty good but the meatballs themselves bland; side salad very bland; halibut was ok, but again very little to remember about the sauce or the seasoning of the vegetables. Wines by the glass uninteresting. Service equally mediocre; server had nothing to recommend or offer even when asked; we hardly ever saw him, and no real conversation or communication when we did. Would definitely not go back.

We really enjoyed the ambiance, the server's willingness to accommodate my children's palates, the delicious cocktails- Pay to Play is SUPREME, and the delicious food! The tomato bisque was to DIE for as was the Alaskan Halibut! YUM!!! We decided not to wait for a table outside since it was chilly, but the ambiance inside was beautiful. The lights were lovely. The people- hostess, server Chelsie (Chelsey?) super friendly... all the people working there and guests- all such welcoming and lovely people to us- visitors from LA!

While the restaurant may have changed ownership in February, it can't be in better hands. The staff is attentive, the drinks are special and the food is one of the best spots in OC. Sat, socially distant, outside. Watched the greeter do his thing for a half hour and then jumped into a very nice meal. Not cheap (but corkage was only $20), but worth it.

You need a reservation. Surprisingly, on a Tue. evening, a couple w/o a reservation was turned away at 6:30 b/c they were booked! Innovative cuisine--not the typical meat & potatoes fare. The portions are good and the flavors are excellent. The owner owns 3 other restaurants in the OC area and we have eaten at two of them. One of the nice features is his wine list: they have some smaller, unknown wineries and their prices are fair, not like a lot of restaurants that really jack up their wine prices. We highly recommend Sapphire , Cellar. Craft Cook.

We sat at a table far corner of patio. Unfortunately the door to the kitchen was next to us and we had to watch and listen to this door opening frequently with what appeared as trash and linens were being taken outside to what I assume was dumpster. Also the chairs at our table did not match the rest of the patio so I assume it was added due to covid but they were very uncomfortable after sitting through an entire dinner. The food was very good. The waiter was good but nothing special. Not a bad evening by any means but not spectacular either.

Food and service were fabulous. We enjoyed the roasted brussel sprouts with pork belly starter. The poached salmon and pork schnitzel entrees were both delicious. We finished with seasonal sorbet and Meyer lemon creme brulee. Our server Maricela provided excellent service. The Belle Glos pinot that we brought was decanted for us.
Highly recommend.

I love the location just across PCH from the beach. The view was simply beautiful with a relaxed atmosphere. My husband and I ordered the wild caught halibut dinner. It was delicious! Low calories with lots of veg, fingerling potatoes and laced with pistachios. We will definitely return.
