Going to the Quiet Woman is always a treat for us. The staff takes such good care of us that we feel like family. Great bartenders (especially Sierra)! Food is very good. But it is the people that make this our favorite locals restaurant to sup. Ask for Julius, Tamara, Abby, Sierra or Jessica. They will make your evening a special one.

Been here many times, lunch and dinner. Reservations 6:30pm. Had starters. Artichoke and fresh oysters. No disappointment here. Would have liked drawn butter..., couldn’t catch server . Food served at 7:40pm. Place was busy. Busy should not negate service. Tea water was warm. “That’s how hot our water is.”..”no,”I”ve had your tea before. I had soup, husband had salad. Generic.
Jad to ask for bread. My take, if you don’t ask, you don’t get.
Table beside us 7-8 peeps. We knew from that point service would be downhill. And it was.
Rib eye medium ordered. I wanted toward pink. It had red. If this rested, it rested for a while. Dry, when cut. Almost asked for A-1. Who likes a grilled lukewarm steak? . Husband had ahi dinner..Tasteless. Wasabi and soy tasty!
Had many great meals here...bound to happen?
$170. Plus tip..2 Stella’s. Oh, my...

We were visiting from out of state and had seen the restaurant in a television show and it looked and sounded intriguing. The noise level was the only negative. It seems everyone in Newport Beach feels the need for EVERYONE to hear their conversation. Otherwise, the food was outstanding with creative presentation and the waitstaff was very cordial and attentive. Wear earplugs but definitely enjoy the experience!!!🤪

If you like a small upscale feeling restaurant with good food and a comfortable bar The Quiet Woman is a great place. We eat out a lot and always include a meal from The Quiet Woman when circulating through the list of our favorite restaurants.

Noise level was impossible. Just having a conversation across the table was a chore which definitely made the evening much less than what it should have been.

Lived in the neighborhood in the mid 90 d's. Use to go all the time. Cool place, great food and live music. Took my wife Friday nite for my B-day. Very crowded, loud and a lot more tables than before. I had the Baseball Steak-very good- but my wife had the Mahi Mahi special which was served so hot that it burned my mouth when my wife gave me "first taste". You could tell it was microwaved and most likely being defrosted because the center was COLD!. Craps later in the nite. House Cab was disappointing. Just didn't have it together. Maybe bad nite or just maybe bad......not the place the original owners use to have.....just saying... so sad-not everything has to be new and improved!

My husband and I have enjoyed going to The Quiet Woman for special occasions for many years now. It is one of our favorite places. Last night we took our daughter in law for her birthday and it was a lovely experience. We arrived an hour early for a reservation but they were happy to accommodate us and the waitress did a wonderful job in advising us all about the different food items on the menu.

The food and cozy atmosphere was good. I didn't understand the decor. Is it supposed to be "old world"? Those flowery table cloths have got to go. Enjoyed the steak and QW lazy Susan "salad bar". For the price of the entree it wouldn't have hurt them to put a few more than 2 asparagus spears on the plate. I thought the banana rama dessert was good, but nothing great. The employees were welcoming and attentive. Even on a Sunday afternoon the small dining room was noisy making it difficult to hear conversation.

The Quiet Woman has been serving delicious food and drinks for over 50 years and the consistency of food and service remains excellent. We love the salad which comes with a "Lazy Susan" of additional items to customize one's preference. Also, the noise level is low enough to be able to talk with your table mates.

We’ve been wanting to try this place for a long time, and we are so glad we finally did. My husband and son both had steaks, while I enjoyed seafood. Everything was prepared perfectly and tasted delicious. Our waitress was attentive and professional, but let us enjoy each course without rushing us out the door. We will definitely be back.

I was really looking forward to enjoying the Quiet Women. I had the ribeye w a bone, well cooked, char taste was good but the steak\meat was blaaa. I ordered dessert , apple crisp..in a 2” bowl, no crust and very very burn my tongue hot.. I think it was over microwaved..but no crust just soggy apples. Service was ok but nothing to rave about... very disappointed.
