Had a lovely brunch. For a small place, it can get quite rowdy! The service was amazing and the specials were so tasty. The menu is small but everything we had was delicious. I recommend the chocolate ganache, banana bread, short-rib hash (special), crab cakes (special) and of course bloody mary...just the right amount of spicy.

New favorite restaurant m! This is what fine dining done right looks, tasted and feels like. The arugula and roasted peach with balsamic glaze - way yum! Melted in my mouth. Everything was delicious but the rack of lamb was the best lamb any of us ever tried. It tasted scrumptious and it was so tender you could cut it with a butter knife!
Ambiance was outstanding. The entire backside of the restaurant opened up to the inlet so you could watch boats stream by with their lights casting blue or white shadows behind them. Love the chandeliers and that they have an everyone bathroom, so refreshing every restaurant should follow suit.
Lastly the desserts were phenomenal, the best we have ever had - try them all.

Great, upscale waterside eatery. Quiet location with dockside access. An older, well presented crowd in comparison to some of the other restaurants on Newport Island, (probably reflects the prices on the menu), which made for a relaxed and civilised evening. Food was excellent and service attentive. Best food / restaurant we have visited in Newport. Recommended.

One of the best restaurants we have ever visited. The food and presentation was so magnificent and flavorful. The halibut was wonderful as was the mussels. Our server was Tiffany who was so gracious and attentive. We concluded our experience feeling that we now have a new friend. Thank you for everything. We can't wait for a return visit.

We had an amazing wedding anniversary dinner at The Dock. The service was wonderful, the food was delicious and the view was relaxing. The only thing that happened was one of their two restrooms went out of order so there was a brief line and wait but it was fine. Thank you for another memorable experience at your lovely restaurant!

We absolutely love The Dock !! It’s the hidden gem of Newport Beach. The restaurant is so beautiful, it sits right on the bay in Newport Beach, when your dining or drinking wine from their fabulous wine list,beautiful sailboats and boats pass by. The scenery is gorgeous, I feel like I’m in the South of France. It’s definitely my favorite restaurant in Newport Beach. Eric and Danielle always remember our names and make us feel so special every time. The food so delicious and service is outstanding.

The Dock never disappoints. From the service to the wine selection to the food. Unbelievably amazing every time I go and I can’t say enough good things about this place. If I could give dinner a standing ovation then this would be the venue to give it.

This was my 3rd time at the Dock (2nd time for diner, once for brunch). The service is excellent, and the food is always wonderful. Classic dishes with an elevated and original interpretation. The servers are very helpful in pairing the right wines, and the wines by the glass are generously poured. We had appetizers, salad, entrees, and desert. All were really good. The atmosphere is relaxed and sophisticated, and the dining room is not too loud (maybe because it is open at the waterfront.) We will definitely be back. I cook a lot, so when I go out I want something delicious and different, served hot and cooked properly. The Dock does not disappoint picky diners.

Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous beginning to end! Can’t say enough about the food. We both had the fresh fish which was halibut. We both agreed it was the best we’d ever had. Cooked to perfection, beautifully presented and amazing flavor. Tiffany was lovely, fun, well informed on the menu and very attentive. This will be our special goto place from now on. Don’t know where this chef came from but he’s top rate!
