My husband and I always love dining at The Winery in Newport. This was our first time having Sunday brunch and it was lovely. John, our waiter, was terrific and the food/drinks, as usual, were wonderful.

Another great night at the Winery, our favorite place. We brought friends from out of town to show off our favorite restaurant, and overall it was lovely. Just one minor disappointment: we had made the reservation well in advance and asked for a table by the water, but when we arrived were told by the hostess those tables were "reserved"...? Not sure what she meant, but didn't want to complain in front of guests.

For our first time, we were impressed. If you want to sit by the window to see the dock/ bay I recommend you make reservations in advance and request. Though we were able to see the the dock and watched to yachts pull up to there slips the view was still wonderful from where we were. The restaurant also serves the one yacht that pulled in.

The food was amazing. We order oysters on a half shell. Fresh and delicious. Venison and king crab legs.. sorbet and cream brûlée for dessert.. valet parking was reasonable. We decide to try to make it our go too spot we loved it that much.

Troy was our server. Great job!

We were celebrating a new job and our server made sure we had everything we needed.

We ordered the filet mignon and lobster - both were fabulous. We were given a free cheesecake dessert which was amazing.

We love this place and the view is always perfect. This location is one of our all time favorites.

Between the ocean front table, extensive wine list, great food and outstanding service from our server John. It was a perfect evening. For such a nice restaurant in Orange County, the entire staff was very friendly and non pretentious.

Starting with the positives: Service was beyond excellent. Staff was on top of everything, friendly, and made dining here fun. Wine selection is tremendous and staff will recommend what they like regardless of price, which can range from $12 per glass to OMG. Seafood tower was great with an outstanding presentation. View of the harbor was beautiful. Ambiance is upscale without being snooty. Now, on to the entrees. This is where we go from 5 stars to four overall (2 stars for entrees). Party of four ordered two filets and two orders of the shrimp & scallops. Steaks were end cut filets (tapered end). I’ve never been served anything but a center cut filet in a high end restaurant. The best of chefs can’t evenly cook a tapered end cut. No exception here. Failure. I ordered medium-rare and got medium, but medium plus on the tapered end. My son ordered medium-rare-plus, but got medium well on the fat end and well done on the tapered end. He declined to send it back. I would’ve returned it. Wife and daughter ordered the shrimp and scallops dish. Scallops were excellent. Seared, hot and juicy. Shrimp were over cooked and dry. We ended with desserts of cheesecake (comp’d for my birthday) and their version of beignets. Both were very good. So, would I recommended this place? Go to the bar, have some wine and appetizers and enjoy the service, view and relaxing ambience. Tell em to leave the steaks and other entrees to someone who can do it right. Disappointing after hearing so much good about this place.

Great food with a great view. Service staff could not have been more friendly or attentive. A bit on the pricey side but a good value for what they provide. Wine list is very long and they mix a good cocktail. I will definately be returning.
