The Winery Restaurant and Wine Bar - Newport Beach Ratings and Reviews
The food at The Winery never disappoints, however, the service I experienced was extremely mediocre.
I made a reservation at 8 and was told that I had to wait for 20 minutes by the host (which defeats the purpose of reserving).
My party and I waited at the upstairs bar and stayed there for half an hour and did not get called for our table.
I then went to the hostess stand and told them how we have been waiting and haven’t been accommodated, and to my surprise, they were not very apologetic and blamed their manager for not seating us.
We finally made it to our table and while our waitress was helpful and hospitable, one of our appetizers were not brought out and our sides were forgotten because the runner gave it to another table. My steak was sitting there sad waiting to be eaten.
I am not one to complain about service but for the money I am paying for, I want to have a memorable experience—especially since it was a friend’s birthday who had never been there before.
I hope if I return to The Winery, the servers and hostesses will be much more alert and not flustered as I experienced.
Its a very nice place, Chris the manager and staff are very nice and do their best to enjoy your time there, the food is excellent.
I do have to say that Open Table is incorrect with the time options available online & this isnt the first time, Id call the place direct to make a reservation, Open Table said the only time we could reserve was for 5pm, when we got to the restaurant they had plenty of seating, the staff even mentioned they have seen issues with Open Table as well with reservations, so call direct to verify open times for seating.
Our first time at this location. Really appreciate the warm welcome. We shared a starter of the smoked salmon and then each had an entree. I had the white shrimp risotto and my husband had the eggs benedict with crab. All three dishes were delicious. The view of Newport Harbor was amazing. Most of all the service was spectacular. Carol was smart and witty, and took perfect care us. Champagne flowed and the day just got better and better with the introduction of Skye.
We will definitely be back soon and request the team of Carol and Skye. Thanks for a great brunch and for the amazing service. Cheers!
One of the best restaurants in Orange County. Consistently good food and service. We were seated at the window with a spectacular view of Newport harbor. I ordered the Mahi Mahi which by the way, is the only entree I've had here and this is my 6th visit. It was prepared perfectly and delicious which is why I can't stop ordering it. Everyone at my table enjoyed their food. You must dine here; you will not be disappointed.
I set up a team event dinner to be held at the winery. They had everything ready before we got here. The area was so beautifully done. Everyone in the party was impressed and I got major kudos for booking this restaurant.
The food and wine was fantastic. Great food, service, and drinks. Will definitely be booking more events at this location.
We were very disappointed as we came for birthday celebration
We were seated at the worth location even tho we indicate in our request what we wanted
Drinks were very poor and supper expensive
Food was flavor less
Was expecting much more from this restaurant as we visited many time the irvine location
Disappointed - they called stating power outage 1 hr before my arrival. I was able to get a hold of 4 of my party but the last one arrvived there and went home. I was assured by the hostess my guests if they arrived would be told to go where I was....that did not occur. Ruined my birthday dinner!!!!!!!!!
We were there to see if we can have our thanksgiving family gathering there. The response from the whom we talked to was not encouraging.we always dine out and have been to much better places. The noise was annoying specially coming from the table next to us.
View is beautiful , but altogether I cannot give more than 2 stars
Arrived on a Duffy boat for Sunday Brunch. The restaurant was NOT at capacity with 1/3 of the tables empty. However, service was extremely slow. Had to flag down our server for every refill of coffee & drinks, after waiting for an extremely long time & several requests to the server as to the whereabouts of our food, my husbands french toast was served cold. Very disappointing as I recommended the Winery based on a previous dinner there.
We loved our evening at The Winery. Our server was fantastic, in a quirky and fun and engaging way. Everyone we met was refreshingly enthusiastic about the restaurant. The room and bay view are beautiful, but the absolute runaway highlight was the food. We had several dishes and everything we tried was unique and perfectly balanced, no small feat.
I ended up giving fours on value and ambiance for simple reasons. The wine markup is eye popping. We had excellent wines by the glass instead of a bottle and found this reasonable. Also, there was live entertainment on the Friday evening we were there and the gal was just so-so. She can be heard all over the restaurant, so this is something the owners should take more seriously, or eliminate it altogether.
All in all, a truly great place. We'll definitely go back.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our date night out....service very attentive, food was unique & amazing flavors, and the extra special treatment over the top. We have been to several amazing restaurants but, we really had a wonderful experience there. We will for sure be returning.
My second time here and I would definitely return again and highly recommend this place. The quality of food and service is outstanding, our server, Kevin, was fantastic, knowledgeable and helpful with selections. We decided to share some dishes and they brought them out already split across plates to make sure that everyone gets a fair sampling. Simply wonderful! Definitely will return again. Highly recommend the Cioppiono for seafood lovers, the broth is outstanding. Hats off to the chef and the wonderful staff!
