    The Great Maple at Fashion Island is a great place for lunch and dinner. The food is delicious and the service is excellent. Great Maple has ample outdoor and indoor seating options. The maple/bacon doughnuts are a decadent delight.

    Marissa was an amazing server! She was very attentive and went above and beyond! Hostess was very welcoming too! If the food was better and more reasonably priced we would return. Maybe we will just to see Marissa!

    We love this restaurant. I only have one complaint regarding the fried chicken/donuts brunch dish. The chicken was not warm enough and the donuts seemed like they were a little stale compared to ones I’ve had in the past. Our friends ordered donuts to go and they took a long time to come out and were warm when they came out which makes me think my donuts weren’t as fresh as they could have/should have been. Otherwise, it was a nice evening.

    The Taco salad was mediocre. The lettuce was not fresh and the chicken over cooked. There were very skimpy on the avo, only 2 slices!!!! A $22 salad when it should have been $12. The Mac and cheese was salty. The service was very good but other than that, it was very disappointing.

    The experience was underwhelming & did not live up to its hype & customer reviews. On a positive note though, our Bloody Mary’s were good & our server, (sorry I don’t have her name), was friendly. We stopped in for breakfast and had a 10:00 reservation. The restaurant opened a couple minutes late. No big deal but a party of 17 crowded the door and walked up to check in counter ahead of us. They did not have a reservation. No fault to Great Maple but the hostess did not ask if anyone else waiting, us & at least three other couples, if we had reservations before leaving the counter to go set up a table for the large group. Again, they had no reservation so those of us with a reservation had to wait. Once seated all was good until we received our breakfast. Husband ordered chilaquillas & I was excited about ordering the chicken & maple donuts. The food was disappointing. My chicken was over cooked, the breading burnt & the donuts were very dense & hard. My bad for not asking if the chicken was all white meat. It is not. I was unable to eat my breakfast so my overly kind husband gave me his chilaquillas, which we both found to have good flavor but dry. During our meal, a service table was pushed over near our table which took away from the little bit of ambiance we did have on the patio where we sat. I do wish we would have had a better experience. Unfortunately we will pass on this restaurant in the future.

    Cute decor but food lacks seasoning and flavor. Absolutely no flavor at all. Fries were cold and fried chick lacked any seasoning. Overpriced for the quality of food.

    The quality of the food has gone down since the last time we were there about 8 months ago. Maybe its what we picked this time turkey bolognese and a hamburger. It was all bland. The turkey bolognese tasted like a microwave meal. The sauce was watery and there was barely any meat. The burger was below average. Over priced food.

    I met a friend for a business dinner and we sat on the patio. The table next to us was very loud so it did not make for a great dining experience, but the food was fantastic.

    So something has to be done about the dogs on the patios. When we sat down there were five dogs ! One table had three little ones and they all started barking and wouldn’t stop. It really affected the whole ambience and the entire experience . It’s too much, I love dogs too but there’s a time and place. I ordered the fairly new chickens taco something salad. Was not worth twenty two dollars. The meat was dry and tough, there were barely any other ingredients and the dressing was way too tart. And the chips lining the edge of the bowl looked cheap. The table behind us had the waiter dump a ketchup container all over the woman’s leg and shoe, disaster. And, they took off the roasted veggie dish with the scramble egg option on top, bummer. I dont want my only breakfast item to be doughnuts or waffles, too bad

    Been wanting to eat here for brunch and so glad I finally made it. They take reservations very efficiently, I got a text the day before and the day of plus a phone call!!! The place was packed at 10:30am. It was a nice open are inside and also nice seating area on their patio which had a nice view of the fountain. There were too many good choices for food so I definitely need to go back. I got the chocolate chip pancakes, Chilaquiles, and the Original eggs Benedict. Everything was delicious! A bit on the pricey side, especially their iced tea which was $5! But I would definitely get the Benedict again. The pancakes could've had more chocolate chips and the chilaquiles could've had more meat. But overall, I would definitely want to come back for the portabello mushroom appetizer and a lot of customers ordered the burgers.

    This place has definitely gone down hill. Inexperienced server, mediocre food - ordered the steak frites with chimichurri but it arrived with no sauce. When I inquired the server replied “oh we don’t serve it like that anymore but I can get you some.” Maybe update the menu then? Won’t be back.

    Great brunch! My boyfriend got the fried chicken sandwhich and I got the eggs Benedict and we split them. Mixing the fried chicken with the eggs Benedict was amazing. Their espresso martinis are fabulous as well as their bloody Mary’s! Great brunch spot for a date. They also gave him complimentary ice cream for his birthday!
