    First time dining at A restaurant and I have to say we were disappointed. I ordered a filet prepared medium and when it was served it was closer to well done. For a high end steakhouse, this shouldn’t happen. The food was good but did not live up to the reviews. We have had better experiences at other high end restaurants. Also, it is VERY loud. We sat outdoors as that was the only available reservation, but I’m actually glad that we did, as we wouldn’t have been able to easily converse with the high level noise.

    A Restaurant is a classic old school steak house with the red vinyl, oversized booths and rich, dark stained woodwork finish. Their food selection is excellent; rom the grilled squid anppetizer, Ceasar salad to several pasta dishes, fish and prime steaks. They have an excellent wine list and their cocktails are on point with over a hundred different bourbons to choose from. You will not be disappointed. Ask to be sat with Steven and you’ll have a ball. Cheers.

    The management staff is always amazing. And a block cut in New York is one of the best stakes in Newport Beach.

    I understand now why it took over a month to get reservations on a Saturday. The food was amazing & well above average. I had an excellent pear martini and filet mignon. It was the best steak I ever had! The only area I would score it lower is because tables we so loud! Like over the top loud . There was a group of 6 or 7 young ladies in the back & they were just too much. Someone should've told them that they were disturbing others but I did not see that happen. Over it was an amazing dinner & I would be back but maybe not on a Saturday night.
