Excelent dinning experience! Outstanding service, thoughtful waiters, and an out of this world rack of lamb. Although not a family restaurant type of a place our waitress made an extra effort to include the kids and thanks to everyone's thoughtfulness they also had a great time. Loved it!
Fantastic! It's always Fantastic! Arguably the BEST RESTAURANT in Orange County. And Tiffany provided us with excellent service. It was our Anniversary and we were made to feel so special.
We celebrated our daughter's college graduation at The Dock and had a wonderful time enjoying great food and service!
We went to The Dock to celebrate a friends birthday. Everything was amazing! We will definitely be going back!
The food was outstanding and the setting very nice. It was a little loud early in our experience, but as the number of people in the room decreased it become more conducive to conversation. The waiter was attentive, but sometimes there was a bit of delay for a response to requests (more bread, water refills). Overall, it was a wonderful dining experience and we look forward to returning soon.
Great spot. I had their signature rack of lamb dish, and my wife had fresh halibut. The room opens out to the dock without windows, and it has great decor and ambience. It is pricey, but well worth it.
Amazing high quality food prepared with excellence. The ambience couldn’t have been better with the restaurant overlooking the bay. Outstanding service made our entire dining experience a true joy.
The dock is always an amazing experience! The atmosphere and views are fabulous and the food is always delicious. The staff is patient, knowledgeable and professional! We love it! One of the best dining experiences overall in Newport Beach!
Had an amazing brunch at a very affordable price. My wife and I have been several times and never disappointed. We always enjoy it!
We took a Duffy and went to The Dock for my birthday. Everything was fantastic from the service to the drinks to the food to the dessert to the ambiance! It was a special and fun time with my family. We will definitely return. Loved it!
Love this place. Qauint, cozy and on the water. This little gem of a restaurant is pumping out some killer food and unmatchable customer service! Love it! Highly recommend
Excellent service and ambiance! The food is delicious!
Wonderful service and excellent food in a beautiful venue right on the water.
We love going to the Dock. The food is always spectacular and everyone is extremely nice there♥️
We just loved this restaurant. It’s small and intimate. Gourmet, but not stuffy. Excellent wine list! The wait staff superb! The food was incredible. My husband and I eat out a lot and we kept talking about how good it was, even the next day
This place is the best restaurant in town, remove it! Food, service, ambiance, al excellent!
Always the best! Never disappointed. Love the staff!
Beautiful Brunch experience for Easter. Everything was top notch!
I have to review as the meal we just enjoyed at The Dock was one of the finest we've had in quite some time. For a first course, my daughter had the french onion soup while I loved the tarragon poached lobster that was done to perfection and wife enjoyed the Hamachi Tostadas. We had four different entree's and all were prepared perfectly with care and passion. Halibut was a special of the evening, Jidori chicken breast, seared salmon and Maine diver scallops. The sauces complimented well and cook temperatures of these were perfect. The profiteroles and salted ganache was a perfect ending to a perfect meal. Combined with informed and attentive from Tiffany, this was probably the best meal we've had this year. Highly recommended and reservations are advised.
One of OC's best restaurants...
Food, wine, service are all top tier.
I recommend The Dock to anyone looking to dine for the evening.
Just a great place to relax and enjoy great food and great service. This is our “go to” for both.
This is a great little Newport Beach restaurant. It has a unique ambiance and the food is served with creativity and style. The staff is well informed and accommodating. We had the lamb and salmon entrees both were done to perfection. Dessert was not that exciting but adequate. Very easy to enjoy your evening here.
Absolutely the best restaurant in Newport Beach !! The food is delicious and the service is outstanding.
We love The Dock for its yummy food, attentive service and sophisticated ambiance.
Best place we've found on the coast for Sunday brunch!
Birthday for a foodie friend who was very impressed. My second time here and both were great especially since we had the very knowledgeable Erik serving and guiding us. I will be back often. Wish they did weekday lunch 🙏
The food was outstanding. I had the Spanish Octopus that was to die for. Both my wife and I had the Halibut special that was superb.
One of the best meals that I have had.
The restaurant is small and intimate. Excellent choice for a date.
My favorite spot and the perfect place to enjoy special attention, an imaginative menu and perfect wine selections. The staff, at every level makes the evening special!
The ambiance was very good, would rate the service higher but the removal of empty plates was poor. We had to stack them at the end of the table to make room for additional orders. We are seasoned diners at upscale restaurants in the US and abroad and found the $40 corkage fee to be in excess of any we have encountered. Very disappointing to not be able to order any alcoholic beverages, perhaps this is why the corkage and wine list are pricey...to make up for lack of revenue that would be generated from having a bar. Our server was great. The sea bass, short ribs, and charred romaine salad were excellent.
The Dock was one of the most amazing dining experiences We have had. The restaurant is beautiful and Thank you Eric for your perfection when it came to service. We will certainly return!
We have been going to the dock for four years now and every time we attend the food has been fabulous and the service is always outstanding. Thank you for such a wonderful experience
Limited menu, but tasty food & attentive service. The calamari and mussel appetizers were delicious, as was the New York Strip and salmon, however the beef short ribs were fatty. Prices are very high and The Dock only only serves beer & wine, but the open-air setting along the Balboa Harbor made for a nice evening. I do not however think I will return to The Dock in the future.
Arrived with a group four to enjoy dinner at The Dock., immediately fell for the quaint ambiance of this small restaurant. We ordered four different appetizers and all were five star worthy, the red snapper ceviche gets a sixth star – it’s that good! Entrée’s included NY strip, salmon, scallops and lamb chops all four were phenomenal with the lamb and scallops probably the best I’ve had in Orange County. As wonderful the ambiance and food were it was surpassed by friendly and personalized service by three servers who truly love what they are doing.
No restaurant compares. It is the best of the best. Halibut was fantastic, Lamb incredible and Pork exceptional. Ambiance is wonderful and wine list is fantastic. Love spending an evening here with friends.
Superb Newport Beach experience! The food was exceptional, and the service was professional but easy going. If you are used to going to The Cannery nearby, try this out! Its pricey, but worth it.
Had the most enjoyable birthday dinner with the girls thanks to the Dock's attentive & friendly staff, beautiful atmosphere and excellent cuisine. Looking forward to dining again in the very near future.
We loved The Dock. Between the lovely waterfront location and outstanding food, it was a night to remember.
Gourmet food, extensive wine list, great knowledgeable service
We were celebrating our anniversary, wanted a special memorable evening. The Dock delivered.
It was expensive but the overall experience was worth the cost. Terrific meal and service!!
Friendly / accommodating wait staff.
Great experience! Amazing food and truly outstanding service. The best service I’ve experienced in Newport. We even had our two kiddos with us and they were so accommodating to them. Highly recommend!
