    Good for a nice dinner on the water. Nice to have a restaurant with a good selection of seafood. Some so called seafood places have 2 or 3 fish choices, here much better. Portions are small for the price, but enjoy the atmosphere.

    We made a reservation and our table was ready on time for a Friday night. Our appetizers were the crab bisque and octopus, both very good. Scallops and sea bass were the main dishes both cooked perfectly.

    The quality of the food was way below the price. This was my family’s first time going here. I have experienced quality seafood and steaks from all over the map. Not one of my guests enjoyed their food. Disappointing at best.

    It was Easter brunch, we chose the halibut and steak and eggs and it was amazing. The flavor and the tenderness of the steak was just perfect. The food and service consistently it’s the reason we always go back.

    The service was quite poor. The waitress forgot about us and didn't take our order. After waiting for 30 min we had to flag down someone else to order food. This was a birthday party for my mom, so it was quite disappointing. The waiters reappeared one hour later and didn't even blink or apologize, just quietly took the plates. No smiles, no assistance, just very unpleasant person. The food was just ok. Nothing to write home about. One thing - the seabass dish was terrible. It was served on top of very spicy soy broth with Udon noodles (?!) The whole combination was mismatched in terms of flavors and the seabass filet was way too salty. The halibut with mashed potatoes was ok. Desserts were meh. I don't think we will come back.

    Long wait for service with an almost empty restaurant. Lobster roll was funny tasting and chewy and either overcooked or they used frozen lobster. Bacon crusted mahi didn’t come with any bacon and instead came with toasted brie with salad on top that was actually tasty (but I missed the bacon). Halibut fish and chips was good but only came with two pieces of fish. Scallops with brussel sprouts were lovely. Generally good wine selection although by the glass was limited. Overall very overpriced for the meal and service quality.

    The steak, salmon and crab cake were great. I didn’t care for the broccolini, it had a smoky taste. Maybe it was suppose to and it’s just not my taste. Not sure.

    Everything about the Cannery was outstanding. Our server, Cara, was excellent and the service from all the staff was top notch. The food was superb, the view of the bay was calming, and the drinks and food were excellent and well-portioned. We would definitely recommend the Cannery for any special reason. We were celebrating our son's 36th birthday and it was a special night for all of us. Kudos!!

    Steak was tasteless and arrived to the table cold. We sent it back. We had a nice bottle of wine O’Shaughnessy Cab from Napa and that was a decent price for a restaurant as it was 50 percent discounted. Our waitress was not really good service orientated she probably was too busy with a big table, but she wasn’t happy anyway. I noticed in a couple of restaurants lately and the Cannery was no exception that the open table guests tend to get the worst tables… far from the action and atmosphere… we rejected the table and they gave us a better one but that’s annoying. I had a hard time leaving any tip here as I don’t think anything was good enough… even the rest rooms were not clean enough.

    Wonderful dinner and incredible scenery, the crab cakes are so light and delicious as is the calamari. Had the special for dinner with lobster/shrimp and scallops, the dish was amazing. Not sure why they always make everyone wait 10 minutes when you arrive regardless of how busy the restaurant even if you have a reservation but its OK since there is cool sports memorabilia to look at but seems to be the way they do business. Other than that, terrific place !

    Not a great experience. I was shocked when they charged me $8 just to park in their huge parking lot. Then charge me outrageous prices for entres. I had the Jambalaya where the shrimp were good but the dish was as thick as joint compound. Won't be back.

    My wife and I found the food to be under-seasoned and bland. My bisque soup needed a lot of salt. We both ordered the seafood enchiladas. They came smothered in too much sauce and the seafood was tough. To their credit the manager did provide my wife with an alternate dish. They also took the cost of a salad off of our bill. Still, this is the second time we have been disappointed there. The last time was due to poor service. We won’t be back.

    This year we went to The Cannery for lunch on Valentine's Day instead of dinner. It was a bit of a disappointment as compared to our many past experiences there. We were surprised to find the restaurant only about 25% of capacity but even with a less than expected crowd, our server was only fair and did not seem as qualified as we've generally had in the past. The food also seemed to lack in quality, while being quite expensive for what was received. Any restaurant can have an off day and we'll likely give it another shot but the experiences was not what we've come to expect of this Newport Beach landmark.
