    Beautiful restaurant but the acoustics are not great. It's best to go at sunset because it really does have a great view. The menu was limited - only about a page long. The cocktail list was also limited. They had a few signature drinks at regular prices and then premium drinks which doubled in prices but nothing in the middle. Wine service could use some polishing -our server back-handed his pours.

    Dinner at the View at Vea Newport Beach was FANTASTIC! The service was EXCELLENT. Great staff. Food and cocktails were delicious. The restaurant and property were welcoming, clean, modern, and had great ambiance. I could not ask for a better experience. We celebrated a birthday. Our honoree had a wonderful 60th birthday. Many thanks to the staff and leadership at VIEW at the VEA Newport Beach!

    Unfortunately the lobster roll was disappointing- too much celery, onions, stuffing and hardly any lobster! Service was slow even though the restaurant was quiet, although waiter was pleasant.

    Staff was very gracious, food from the kitchen took an extraordinary amount of time. While the entrees were excellent, I would suggest skipping the $10 bread...pretty awful. Lovely patio outside but inside contains the very noisy bar patrons while you try to talk during dinner. $55 valet parking is nuts...park at Fashion Island and walk a couple of blocks.

    It’s my second time at Vea. I want so much to like it. The food is mediocre at best and the service is slow but fine for a hotel. After dinner we decided to have coffee on the patio but never received service after being set outside so we left and went to Bungalow for drinks and coffee. Sadly we won’t be back.

    Had the beet salad and the charcuterie and cheese board while sipping fine chardonnay; then the 10 dry aged prime New York strip medium with potato puree and fine French Bordeaux. Service was extremely pleasant and punctual, always smiling! Topped off desert with an expresso martini and Old Fashion. Yummy!

    Really just the worst experience for a Christmas dinner. $500 for three people with only 3 glasses of wine. Food was incredibly average - we had to send back two of the courses because they were undercooked. They told us this fixed menu was the only avail- but we noticed other customers ordering off the standard menu. Such a rip off and an experience we will never duplicate.

    Our server was great, but the manager dropped off our bill when we had full cocktails and it seemed as if he was rushing us out. We planned on ordering additional drinks, but left once we felt pushed out. The restaurant was not busy and there was no reason to rush us.

    Meat was over cooked as we order medium rare and it cam well done and tough. Lamb chops were all fat and barely any meat on them. $ 110.00 a person was way over priced for what we received. Atmosphere was more of a bar with tables instead of a more dinning atmosphere as we expected. Server was great, she was very attentive.

    Nothing special. Basically a loud bar. No real ambience although the pictures online make it look very different. Food was average. Do not recommend this for a special occasion. Fine if you’re staying at the hotel and just want a quick bite for dinner or a drink in the bar. I booked a reservation for my husband’s birthday and had not been before although I have been at their pool area in summer which is great. The View wasn’t anything like it looked on line. Million other restaurants in the OC that are better. Plus, there was no view unless you sit at table outside looking at pool, but those tables were nothing special either.

    Great place for ambiance and to people watch. However the food could use a bit more focus. We enjoyed the Bread and Butter, Spaghetti Bolognese and the Wagyu Burger. The food felt a bit heavy and greasy and not a lot of flavor. I would suggest taking it up a notch. Good luck!

    I requested vegetarian pasta without the lamb. Waitress told me that they had never cooked that before. It took over 10 minutes to tell us that I had to make another choice. She would disappear and not return. It took almost 2.5 hours to get through our dinner. Our appetizer salad came with our dinner. The Naan was delicious but otherwise it was average with terrible service.

    We loved dining outside at View at Vea in a Newport. There is indoor dining also available. The lower seating and less table space outdoors could be a challenge for some, but for us it was a worthy sacrifice to enjoy the air and vista. I will note we ordered a few of the same breakfast items two days in a row and they were a bit different each time, but both times delicious. A few errors were made but the servers were apologetic and very accommodating.

    Being that VEA hotel is fairly new, I know to give this place some grace. Our server was very polite, nice and well kept. Some food items were really yummy and some other dishes not so much. I highly recommend the spicy tuna, crunchy rice appetizer. The service was very slow. There were maybe 3 or 4 tables occupied and it seemed like a well scheduled staff except we didn't receive much service. By the time we got our wine, it had been about 30 min. Our party was 4 people. it didn't help that someone in our party wasn't the nicest customer. The vibe seemed more like a restaurant for guests who are staying at the hotel and just wanted to come down to the lobby and grab a bite to eat. Although we were not staying at the hotel, we are locals and wanted to check out the spot in town.

    The server was not friendly and took for ever yo come to refill our waters. Our coffee was cold and the waffle was one of those ready to use ones from Whole Foods. The chicken was not chicken breast while I specifically asked about it and they said it’s mixed of breast and leg while I got two super oily leg pieces and it smelled so I needed up not eating it My son’s chicken breast was not fully cooked and he had stomach ache about few hours after his meal
