How come every pasta is spaghetti ? Appetizer and salad are better vs pasta,, we got overcharged for a drink which I realized when we got home.

Deserts are good.

Raoul, our waiter, was super -- and we had a wonderful experience - lively (but not loud) atmosphere, delicious food, etc. We'll go back soon!

We tried Rothschild for the first time this week and absolutely LOVED it! The food was all very flavorful and our server Petra was warm and friendly. At the end we shared the Oreo Pie and it was one of the best desserts we've ever had! Definitely going back soon to have more of everything! Also recommend the pesto pasta as they make it all fresh and it tastes amazing.

The food was good. There was a period where we had no food or water in between courses, while the restaurant was basically empty, and were not getting timely service.

The restaurant was extremely loud. The music did not fit the ambiance and was extremely loud. The restaurant catered to the bar crowd as opposed to the diners. The food was disappointing. The chicken dinner that was ordered was tough the cheese was not melted and was basically inedible.

I always get lobster salad. The server should have been aware that the price went up $10. I was not given a menu, because I always get the same thing. But it was a shock that it went up $10 in 3 weeks time since I had last been there. Also, the avacado was forgotten. I had to ask for it. Hopefully they will learn from this experience. Thank you.

There were 2 tables where we were dining who were loudly expressing their views on just about everything, who then proceeded to get in an argument…one threw water…ruined our experience.

The food was excellent and the wait staff great. It’s the other diners who wrecked the experience.

One of our favorite local restaurants. Not only do the servers know us, they also know their wine. One remarked about the Walt Pinot I brought to dinner. Rothschild’s just started carrying Walt (that is very rare). The service is excellent. Try the garlic bread ... irresistible. We shared a fresh Caesar sale (I like anchovies), Scampi and salmon. I highly recommend Rothschild’s

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.
