Lovely lunch, excellent food. I do have one complaint. We were “nickeled and dimed” over small issues. We requested a small side of blue cheese crumbles for a salad that previously included them. $5 charge. We split a ravioli entree. The number of ravioli was uneven, so the chef added one more. The right decision, but we were not asked first. $7 charge. The garlic bread is served in a basket of 5 pieces. We were a party of three. We asked for one more piece and were told no. Given that our lunch bill for three women was $175 (including wine) couldn’t Rothschild’s have been a bit more generous over small issues? Seems petty for such a lovely restaurant.

My husband and I took a couple friends to lunch for one of their birthdays. I had requested a window seat and was happy to be accommodated. Our waiter seemed to be “new” and I say that because first of all when a Campari and soda was ordered he wasn’t aware what it was (this is an Italian restaurant). I asked how many fried ravioli came to an order so I’d know how many orders to request, I was told 4 so I ordered based on that. We waited and when the order finally came to our table there were only 3. I was very embarrassed and immediately placed a second order. Bread wasn’t replaced when the basket was empty.
Our Lunch order was beautifully presented and delicious, but the flow of the entire meal was off and uncomfortable for us as hosts. Will I go back...yes, but I hope the waiter is better trained by then.

Rothchilds is truly a neighborhood gem that offers a wonderful atmosphere, great food, good
service in a setting that is right out of Italy. The pricing is more that fair and the value
is off the charts. Highly recommend to locals and visitors alike

As usual, Rothchilds did not disappoint. Took my assistant to celebrate her birthday. She had linguini with shrimp and scallops, I had chicken parmesan, side of pasta. The pasta is homemade and as delicious as the word homemade suggests. The chicken was cooked to perfection.
Service was friendly and professional as always.
I've been dining at Rothchilds for 30 years and it's always a delight to return

We were visiting from the Midwest and wanted some Italian food. Rothscilds was a random selection but...it is a terrific restaurant. And very economical with excellent pricing. The watermelon salad was perfect for a hot evening. And we split an order of the lobster ravioli. Excellent!!

Small and intimate, older style but beautiful decor. We’ll be back on our next visit to Newport Beach.

The waiter, Tim, was extraordinary. One of our party has food alergies and requires her food to be precisely prepared. Unbelievably, both the waiter and chef got it right, and no food went back. Everything was perfect!

Always a great meal here. The pasta is amazing, as are the toasted ravioli and garlic bread. The veal dish and chicken were very good. You must save room for their secret Ice Cream Pie with a meringue topping and a plate of milk chocolate sauce. To die for!

Rothschilds is a perennial favorite...the fettuccine Romano is the BEST! And the garlic toast is 2nd to none. I was a bit disappointed this time in their special ice cream pie dessert (which is usually great). There was hardly any ice cream in it, mostly meringue fluff on top, and the ice cream that was there wasn't very good. Otherwise, lovely as usual.

This is a restaurant that my family has frequented for nearly 40 years. It never fails to be a delight. Impeccable service and divine food with a wonderful European charm about it. The garlic bread ( a humble sounding edible) is amazing. Truly. No rush dining with great atmosphere and outstanding food. A terrific combination for any occasion.

My first time at this neighborhood staple and the restaurant was crowded and seemed that the air conditioning was not working. The service was attentive however the food was very disappointing. Very average and uninspired traditional fare. The side dish with daily special was a pasta which was cold and tasteless. We ordered our hangar steak to medium rare and came almost rare and so tough it was hard to chew.

I guess the restaurant has been around for few years. I expected better food and experience than what I found. The appetizer of so called "grilled" artichoke heart was no more than soggy artichoke heart from marinated bottled affair. Their so called garlic bread was mediocre. If you are going to charge lamb chop $40, it better be a good piece of lamb chop. Instead what we got was thin piece of over-cooked lamb that you may be serve as an appetizer in some low priced restaurants. I think they really needs change the menu otherwise I'll not be going there ever again

We were two ladies celebrating a birthday. The hostess gave us a cozy corner table. The menu was original and varied. We tried the toasted artichoke house special for an appetizer and it was great. Our server recommended the white salmon special of the night and it was excellent. Very light and delicious. As previously requested, our server remembered to bring out a yummy chocolate, raspberry birthday desert with a candle on it!
