The Cannery Ratings and Reviews
We've alway enjoyed The Cannery and have been many times over the years and often on special occasions. This time, however, we were disappointed by a new menu since our last visit that reduced the number of choices, increased the prices and generally was not very appealing. I'm hoping that management there will get the word that these changes are not going to encourage repeat customers. I can spend $200.00+ at a lot of restaurants in Newport Beach but I want to get my monies worth when the prices are in this range. This didn't happen this past Saturday night.
Was wonderful! Went for valentines dinner. Only downside was I didn’t know that the salad I was asked to add to my entree was at full price. When I was asked it made me feel that the salad came with my meal. I guess I should’ve known everything was à la carte. Besides that it was wonderful and the food was fantastic!!
The attendant when we arrived spent a good three minutes on the phone ignoring us.
Other wait people walked up and also ignored us. Finally, he hung up and because we were two minutes early he told us he could not seat us and we would have to wait.
Waiter was fine.
Oysters were TINY. Especially for the price... Calamari was good.
Scallops were also minuscule. Scallop dish was disappointing.
Place is pretty. Clearly a tourist trap.
Far better places to go in the area to get better quality and quantity sea food for same or less money. Went because of a recent positive review in the Orange County Register. Won't rely on the paper in the future.
Would not go back. Too many better choices in Newport Beach. Menu only items. No fresh fish or items of the day. The server was friendly but not attentive at all and borderline sarcastic. The restaurant gets great reviews but on this night it was empty. This was our fourth time and definitely our last.
We had to wait for our table and sat at the bar for a drink. Bartenders were busy but took great care of us. Then we sat at a table and staff was great. Service was impeccable. Food was delicious, we had grilled octopus and a salad to start with and the octopus was delicious. Very well cooked , tender and flavorful. The sauce was so flavorful and the salad was great as well. I had the loup de mere which was so tasty and my wife had the opa which was a dinner special. Both plates were clean! Great food and we will go back when we visit Newport.
Excellent mixologist, great upstairs bar, the main dining room efficiently run, the servers were very attentive and courteous, and the food was terrific. My wife sends her compliments to the Chef. Her scallop dinner was the best she had ever eaten in her life.
We went to the Cannery to celebrate my wife’s birthday. We sat on the patio near the dock, which is her favorite place to be seated.
We ordered fire grilled Australian lobster tail for our main entree. This is not on the menu but if you ask them they usually can accommodate.
For dessert we shared chocolate molten cake with a birthday candle for her.
Jaime was our waiter. He added just the right amount of attentiveness to complete our quiet celebration.
Great food, great service, and special ambiance.
My wife always loves it at the Cannery.😍
How to describe the experience. Was anything horrible wrong. No. Would I ever go back or recommend. No. First for being seated outside on colder Newport night without even being asked when plenty of open tables inside and being told that if we got cold , they would give us blankets . However, when I asked for an inside seat, was given one with no hassle. They could have just asked and saved me having to walk all the way back to the hostess desk. Second , the atmosphere. The restaurant is tagged as upscale but for as many people dressed nicely is as many in t-shirts and jeans. Nothing like walking next to a guy on way to bathroom in a “Liquor is quicker” t-shirt. If you wanted to be a laid back seafood restaurant be it, but if you want to be upscale enforce your dress code considering you have that on a plaque by your front door. Third, the food . My sister loved her scallops. My tuna was good besides being ice cold . Not sure how you sear tuna and it stays that cold . The barley cream and shishito peppers were great and a nice twist on typical tuna dish. Overall, Cannery lacks a true identity and misses on the details. With so many great restaurants in the area , best to enjoy a night out elsewhere.
My family has celebrated special occasions for many years at the Cannery and it is always a treat. I love the fish tacos and the seafood salad. The ambiance is excellent--right on Lido Isle next to the beautiful water and boats.
Our service was excellent and I would like to especially commend the valet, who took special care to help my 93 year old mother, who was celebrating her birthday, from the car to the restaurant.
Usually the cannery is amazing! We ran into a few issues with our meal and the server getting us all tge items requested. Items were forgotten multiple times and one of my guests were charged 3 times on her card, while my sister and myself were charged correctly. We always have great service. But not this time. And it was not even busy. Oh well better luck next time!
We were celebrating our daughter’s birthday. We were a party of 14, we sat in their covered patio. It was a lovely day with a beautiful view. The Sunday Brunch is superb! Our server was very kind and attentive, along with all the restaurant staff. The food was amazing too. We will definitely return to The Cannery.
Portion size was relatively small for the price. My Scallop dinner was 39.00 for three scallops on a bed of rice. Service was ok. The only positive point was the abviance. Jellyfish lamps in the upstairs bar were cool. I wouldn't return or recommend the Cannery.
The restaurant is great. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Our server Romy was the best. Retaining its ambience, the old cannery has been beautifully restored into a charming restaurant. The baseball memorabilia room is worth the trip alone! Even on a rainy day, we sat comfortably on the outdoor patio, fully covered and heated with an active sea and marina view. Food was unique and perfectly prepared...Peruvian Scallops delicious, Mediterranean Seafood Salad with lots and lots of fresh seafood tossed with a creamy Green Goddess dressing, Loup de Mer an innovative preparation of banzino, and the signature dessert with gelato, carmelized bananas, chocolate and fresh berries was awesome. Would absolutely recommend this restaurant.
We were a family group of 8, 4 generations, out for a New Years Day lunch. We sat on the patio which is right on the water. This was very entertaining for our 3 year old granddaughter. She watched the sea lions, ducks and boats come and go.
The menu has enough choices to please a broad age group (2-87). We ordered oysters, to die for burgers, Chilean sea bass, fish tacos, with Brussels sprouts and fries. Everyone in my groups was happy with their meal and full enough that we had to pass on desert! The prices are reasonable especially considering the waterfront location.
Our server was very cheerful which helped make for an enjoyable dining experience!
5 professional women met for NYE brunch. Our service was slow. After being seated inside, our waitress arrived in about 12 min. We tried to get the hostess attn at 10 min when she sat another table nearby but were ignored. Attn during our meal was sparse. Otherwise all was great.
Poor food. Way too salty for every entree except the filets. We went to the restaurant for nostalgia as my father in law remembered the Cannery from thirty years ago as the BEST restaurant in Orange County. We were really disappointed in the food and underwhelmed by the service. We will not go back again.
We arrived on time for our 5:45 reservation on 12.23.2017, the greeter asked if we wanted to be seated, of course we wanted to be seated. The waiter was friendly and helpful, BUT our main course came out almost immediately after our entries, so we felt "rushed"! My girl friend's scallops were delicious, but my sea bass lacked flavor or a sauce to enhance it, the side dish was small and tasteless. Nice two scoops of ice cream for desert with a de-caf! So for a Christmas dinner meant to be special and memorable, it was not! Sorry, again waiter was fine!
