Best brunch in town. Food is phenomenal ~ the kind of meal you think about for days following. A nice place for a romantic dinner too!
We had a fantastic dinner. Service and food were outstanding. Wine list is extensive yet our server made some wonderful recommendations. Thank you Dock!!
Great food. They should better display that they are “wine and beer only”. Otherwise nice experience.
Excellent service, delicious food, very good wine list, comfortable seating, delightful ambiance.
Our server Erik was outstanding in his knowledge of the menu and the wine. The Dock has an amazing ambiance and great food as well. Pricey as well, but worth it for a special occasion.
Excellent service combines with delicious food to create a memorable experience- Thank you The Dock
Danielle was very attentive and suggested a great menu for us
Excellent service and food
We were visiting from Seattle and pleasantly surprised by this wonderful gem of a restaurant. We will be back next tine we are in Newport Beach.
The Dock is a great place! The Chef is incredibly creative without being too avant garde. I have now been several times and the food and service have yet to impress. The wine selections, pairings and knowledge is really quite impressive to accompany the food. This small restaurant on the water in Newport Beach is perfect for small and even medium size groups. The octopus, rack of lamb and sea bass were all very good.
Brought friends who had not dined here and they loved the atmosphere, the service and food...and they look forward to another visit! Thanks to Danielle and Eric for making the night an A+ !
Tiffany was an excellent waiter. She was so helpful in our entree & wine choices. It was a wonderful dining experience!
Food and service are excellent. Lamb chop I ordered is one of the best dish.
This is an extraordinary restaurant: Food and service! Highly recommend!
Everything was perfect!
My family and I enjoyed dining their, everything was perfect.
Definitely will go there again, two thumbs up.
Excellent food could have a 5 out 5 if all three meals had been served hot. Lukewarm is not acceptable
What a phenomenal place! Amazing food and Tiffany provided the best service! Every time I am back in Newport Beach, I will try to eat here! It’s not just a place to eat, it’s an experience.
Cute restaurant but if you are foodie, there are better restaurants out there with tastier food.
Our waitress made no attempt to make us like the restaurant or the food, didn't go over the menu or help us pick out the food.
Tried the seabass which is normally easy to make tasty since the fish itself is so good, this one though was salty and just not amazing.
Petite salad was definitely lacking flavor.
Also, the main dish is only served medium rare, and apparently that's what they are known for (rack of lamb) which I couldn't order due to pregnancy. No accommodations made by the chef.
Simply perfect :-)
When I want a nice date night with my girlfriend this is one of our favorite restaurants to dine at. The food is excellent and the service is outstanding
Best place to eat in OC!!
Love the Dock!!
Always a pleasure!!
I just wish you used a little less salt in the food. I ordered the lamb again and found it to be a little salty. I prefer to taste the food and not the salt thanks. Meg.
We always enjoy The Dock Restaurant! The food, service and ambiance are excellent. It’s a Newport Beach gem and so are the people operating it!
Looking forward to our next visit.
This is an outstanding restaurant with a water front location in Lido that is unmatched. Very cozy atmosphere with a wonderful menu to satisfy everyone’s palette. Highly recommended!
The most consistently good dining experience we have enjoyed in Orange County.
The server was so sweet, food was excellent, ambiance was so romantic and peaceful, everything was perfect!
Last minute dinner with family and all of our dinners were very good! Only negative thing to say is that the desserts were ok.
My girlfriends and I have been having our regular get together here for the last 3 times - it is delicious with warm service, lovely ambiance and easy to have a conversation - the water just outside softens the acoustics. This week we shared it with my husband and now he knows why we keep coming back--it is a perfect night of dining!
This is my favorite restaurant. The food is some of the best I have ever had. The ambience is intimate and romantic. But the real star is the service. Every staff member is invested in you having a perfect dining experience. The Dock has achieved perfection.
What a wonderful little spot! Warm, romantic, delicious little restaurant! Highly recommend!!
The Dock has never failed to exceed expectations from its cozy ambiance, knowledgeable wait staff, consistent cuisine & uniquely excellent wines. It is my “go to” for entertaining VIPs as well as Newport’s hidden secret.
Great food & service.
Our first time at this restaurant and what an absolutely awesome experience! The food was delectable and service impeccable. Our server went above and beyond to make it an exceptional experience for us! We will most certainly be going back.
Service and food outstanding love the water front dining.
The Dock is one of the best restaurants in Newport Beach! This water front dinning is fantastic and I would highly recommend this to anyone. The service was fantastic and the ambiance of this small restaurant was really perfect. I started with the crispy Spanish Octopus which was really very nice and had the perfect texture with oven dried tomatoes and bilbao chorizo! My wife had the hand torched romaine which she really enjoyed. The rack of lamb and fresh halibut were also prepared perfectly! Our server Eric was great for a special evening out in Newport.
Outstanding restaurant off the beaten path in a quiet neighborhood of Balboa . Parking right outside and a wonderful menu . I had halibut and my wife had the scallops. Superb and the service over the top . If you want to feel pampered , the Dock is the place
