Rothschild’s is a hidden gem! The staff are friendly and the service is top notch! We are never disappointed and continue to go back time and time again! I recommend it to everyone I know!!!! You have to get the garlic bread and shrimp appetizer! The fettuccine Romano is the best (if you enjoy fettuccine Alfredo). Overall it’s a great restaurant and one of my favorites!!

As always, food and service were impeccable. Noise level on this particular Friday evening was louder than usual and somewhat unpleasant. Difficult to talk to dinner companions when you have to almost shout.

Wow, Another great meal at Rothchild's Restaurant in beautiful Corona del Mar! We came in for the Copper River Salmon this time, but loved the pastas, salads as well as artichoke hearts and garlic cheese toast ( a must!!!). The service was terrific and the dining room was lovely and lively too. We will be back very soon!

Our first experience at Rothschild’s and we were not disappointed. Have walked by before but never entered in, now we know what looks good actually is! The dining room and wait staff were warm and attentive..my husbands steak was tender with a tasty sauce. I had the veal with lingonberry sauce, a beautiful presentation.

We were there to celebrate a 25 year anniversary and stated that in our request. Sadly we were given a table that was one of the worst in the entire restaurant. No mention of the anniversary celebration. Service was good and the food was excellent. Too bad they don’t take the time to recognize celebrations.......

We have been to Rothschild's on several prior occasions and found the restaurant to be superb. On this particular Friday night, the restaurant was quite busy and the staff got overtaxed. The sauces on the dishes we ordered did not turn out to be our favorites. Nonetheless, we had a great time and, in the future, we will try to be more careful about which evenings we book and which dishes we choose. The restaurant remains one of our favorites.

We have found Rothschild's Restaurant to be a very consistent and well managed establishment. Their selections of appetizers, pastas, and entrees cannot be beat. I am particularly fond of the escargot as an appetizer and my wife loves their caesar salad. I had an entree of Copper River Salmon and my wife had the Linguine w/ Pesto Sauce which features pistachio nuts instead of pine nuts. Both were excellent.

We used to love, love, this restaurant. The food is not what it used to be and there is less “wanting to please” attitude, especially when we saw free tables and no one coming in for the better table sitting placements. I was disappointed and we will go somewhere else for special occasions.

Rothschild's is a true Orange County gem, with marvelous food and an inviting ambiance. The restaurant is packed on weekends, and the seating is tight, so the noise level is energetic to be sure. Service is usually very good, but can be slow on busy nights. The food is always consistently excellent though, and the reason Rothschild's is so popular. We've dined at Rothschild's many times, and have always come away impressed with the quality of the food preparation and presentation.

The food has remained consistent for over 25 years! One of our favorite places in CDM. It’s quaint, romantic and a place the locals go. The food is amazing! The pasta is homemade and the garlic bread is a must! Their signature dessert should NOT be missed! I highly recommend going to Rothschild’s if you’re in the area

Not on a Saturday night!
We had to wait almost half hour though we had a reservation. Host was not pleasant as we waited at the crowded bar being jostled from every direction. . No apology, “it is a Saturday night.” not the table area we requested. ( moved Upstairs)....even a bit patronizing.
We enjoy this restaurant for lunch. They have an awesome lobster salad.
However, we could not hear each other at dinner and couldnt locate a server when needed. Food quality suffered too. Disappointing because we brought new neighbors. They probably will not go back.

I've been going to this restaurant for decades and it's one of my absolute favorites. They didn't change the menu for years and I loved that because I could always count on getting certain items on the menu. I still absolutely love this restaurant but they've taken some of my favorites off the menu in the past six months which was a bit disappointing (loved their tortellini, pescatore pasta, etc). If I had a magic wand, I'd bring the menu back to the original one that they've had for 25+ years. Classic and perfect:)

Excellent authentic and delicious Italian cuisine (including dessert!). Fantastic service starting from the valet and on through to our waiter who attentive, patient, fun to converse with, and highly knowledgeable about every item on the menu. The restaurant has a very nice ambiance and is perfect for a wedding anniversary celebration as it was for my wife and me on the evening of 03-20-2019. Five stars and compliments to the chef!

What a wonderful place. Been there forever and so you forget to go. I was one of those that hasn't been in a long time. Recently I've been back twice and will certainly return soon. Old school ambiance and attention to service. They have recently upgraded the menu and recipes without losing is roots. The food is comforting and refined. Definitely worth trying again if you haven't been recently.

We've dined at Rothschild's many times, and have always found the food excellent. The service, although usually good, can be inconsistent depending on how busy the restaurant happens to be. On our most recent visit, the service was very slow, due in some part to it being a busy Saturday night. However, despite the full house, our wait to receive menus and drinks did seem exceedingly long. That being said, the food at Rothschild's is always excellent and worth the drive if you don't happen to live in the south Orange County coastal community. My suggestion would be to go during the week, or later in the evening.
