Nice ambiance, parking a bit challenging for a Sunday afternoon. Service was good (Danille). Food was very good. A bit pricey.

We met friends visiting from Virginia here, and found The Dock by reading recommendations on OpenTable and Yelp. We didn't know what to expect, and were extremely pleased.
Neighborhood: We're not that familiar with Newport Beach. The neighborhood looks like it's in transition -- a few lots under construction, some empty storefronts. Easy street parking across from restaurant. Don't be deterred by neighborhood renovations.

Atmosphere: Lovely; on the water; ask for a table close to the water.

Cocktails: we had Bloody Marys and Hibiscus Mimosas. Lovely to look at at, all delicious.

Food: Highly recommend the Short Rib Omelette, the Waffles also and Brussels sprouts salad to begin. Goat Cheese and Scrambled Eggs was good but I'd have the short rib omelette next time.

Service: our waitperson was terrific. Friendly, professional, solicitous - perfect. Answered questions, made recommendations.

Wonderful place-our new favorite. Staff will make you feel special from the moment you will enter the restaurant. Erik knows a lot about wines and pairs it perfectly. Erik and Danielle’s description of food makes you excited about it 😊. Food is delicious, often with a twist to the taste. They made us feel special and we will keep coming back.

The Dock has always been excellent and our favorite spot to celebrate birthdays, anniversary, etc. The food has always been excellent, the wait staff very engaged, knowledgeable and friendly. The ambiance is perfect, a beautiful dining area nestled up against the water. I forget how much i love this place until we go back and then wonder why we don't go more often!

I had the halibut and it was probably one of the best meals I have ever had! My husband had the lamb and was equally impressed. He said it was a different cut of lamb than he ever had before; and loved it. Our seat was right by the water, open wall and fire pit. It was perfect. Our server was fantastic, friendly and attentive (but, not too much!) We will definitely be returning!

Food is terrific, sophisticated menu offerings but done just right. Very good wine list - maybe have some more value choices? Service staff is excellent and helpful. They now have full bar.

It's an expensive meal but I found it worth every penny. Our food was excellent but our server really made the meal. He had incredible knowledge of each of the dishes and you could tell he was truly passionate and proud of what they were cooking. It was no sales pitch, he was just really great. Awesome time and the restaurant was beautiful.
