We had a 6:00 reservation at Rothschild's on a Friday night. The place was packed but they seated us immediately. Our server was attentive and well informed. Our wine and yummy garlic toast was quickly brought. We shared their delicious Caesar salad and we each ordered a pasta dish. It is amazing to me that they can serve these entrees so piping hot. The pasta was delicious. I have a small complaint that its pretty noisy but after all it was Friday night. Rothschild's is a classic restaurant and I hope it stays in Corona Del Mar forever.

We live in Northern California but enjoy coming to Rothschilds when we are staying at our Newport Marriott timeshare..which is usually 2-3 times a year. The food is always great! We were seated upstairs this time (we never knew there was an upstairs!) and thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance.
Our server, Samantha, was personable, friendly, knowledgeable and provided great service! We were surprised to hear it was only her 3rd week there and she had not worked at another restaurant in several years. She also works in a salon.
We thoroughly enjoyed the beet salads and our entrees. My husband had the short rib special and I had the Scampi with the house pasta.
It couldn’t have been a better dining experience!

Definitely worth the drive from LA. Great ambiance with Renaissance paintings to give that wine cellar feeling. . Cozy bar on one side and dining room on the other side. Great service. Great cocktails and wine list. Loved the salads and pasta maritaroni (seafood pasta with a red cream sauce. Rich and delicious. Also loved the lobster salad.

Upon entering, the whole restaurant is very noisy and you have to shout to have any conversation. We ordered the escargot and it looked good but it was extremely bland. The main entree wasn’t prepared how we asked for it so had to send it back once and decided just to eat it when it came back wrong the 2nd time. Overall, I’m not sure what’s good about this place except that our server was nice

The food and service were excellent. As the restaurant filled up with patrons, it got very noisy. Something that the younger crowd likes and the older crowd does not. But overall and excellent choice in restaurants.

The food was great as always. The service was the worst we've every had there. We had a reservation but had to wait almost 30 minutes for our table. The hostess did a nice job eventually of negotiating for a woman to leave her table and come into the bar. However, the waiter was incredible slow and not very responsive to our simple basic requests...just getting a menu took way longer than it should have.

We’ve been coming to Rothschilds for years. Sorry to say the place has changed quite a bit with the times. Too noisy for us. Will probably end up elsewhere in the future.

We discovered this restaurant through Open Table in June. This was our second time dining here and it was just as delicious as the first. The meatballs and garlic bread are a MUST have! The Parmesan cheese is out of this world good and come to find out they have it shipped from Italy and grate it themselves! The service has been fabulous each visit and we have rated this our favorite Italian restaurant in California.

I love Rothchilds. The wait people are great. The man who was in charge of reservations gave ours away because we were 10 minutes late. I've called before if I was going to be late, which isn't often, and was told 10 - 15 minutes was acceptable. They were crushed with people. We watched our outside empty table for 20 minutes. After waiting for 25, we were seated. The server was awesome. The restaurant gave us free bread and a dessert as a sorry. I've always had a restaurant call to check if we were late or give our seats away. It was late, I was tired and hungry. We should have gone elsewhere. Our 7:30 reservation turned into us being served by 9pm.

I wouldn't recommend as they insist on keeping their large windows open so you are forced to enjoy all of the traffic noise and fumes from adjacent Pacific Coast Hwy.

Restaurant was great vibe, service was wonderful, very friendly and very understanding about my party being a little late for our reservation. The only issue wasn't really an issue as much as a preference the swordfish was slightly soft and mushy, it held form fine, and the quality was there, just might have been a little over cooked or sautéed too long. Taste was good, and the pasta dish also ordered was phenomenal, garlic bread was amazing as well. But swordfish could have been a tad bit more firm texture wise. Other than that overall experience was wonderful!
