There is nothing special about this restaurant (not the food, service or drinks), yet they charge Mastro’s prices for a CPK experience. I was thoroughly disappointed the last 2 times we dined here and will definitely not be returning.

We enjoyed talking to the manager, Thad. We realized we knew him from many years ago from Antonella’s. The waitress, Christina, was exceptional. The table busser, Brandon, was super friendly, helpful, and generous to offer us a dessert.

For our anniversary we came to the Winery Newport Beach. We had a lovely booth by the window. Our waiter was professional and let us pace our ordering out. The octopus appetizer was wonderful! I had the special halibut and my husband had the short ribs, both very well prepared.

We had a lovely dinner on a very nice table by the window that looked out to the bay. The service was excellent, with so much attention to detail. The scallops accompanied by mushrooms were amazing. The atmosphere and decor was lovely too. I would 100% recommend it for an special occasion.

We really enjoy coming to this restaurant The food is usually very good. This time we ordered the special sea bass. It was OK. Although to me it didn’t quite taste like sea bass. I was a bit disappointed.

Overall it was okay. Food, service and atmosphere were very average. Dined on a Saturday night. The dining crowd definitely skewed on the older side. Lots of grey hair and was clearing out at about 9 when we left. Nice view of the bay but that’s about the only positive. I give it 6 to 9 months before it closes again. I won’t be back.

The Winery is an awesome restaurant. We've known the owners, JC and William, since they ran the Morton's adjacent to South Coast Plaza. Every visit is outstanding - food, wine, cocktails, ambiance, staff. Oh, and a great location on Newport Back Bay.

We had a nice dinner at The Winery for my wife and I's 23rd anniversary. Our server, Nicole was awesome! She was very attentive to us and made sure we always had wine in our glasses and something to nibble on. During the main course, the kitchen backed up and she was very apologetic and made sure the manager was aware of the situation without us saying a word! When it came time for dessert, she told us to pick the two desserts we wanted most and took care of them AS WELL as the corking fee. It was a good experience for our first time there and will return again soon. Hopefully, we will get Nicole again.

The food and service provided was excellent. From the hostess who greeted us to the waiter who served us everyone was up and happy to accommodate our every wish. We were celebrating three birthdays that evening (son's,wife's and mine) a real family affair. My 5 year old granddaughter had the time of her life. The evening could have not been more perfect. Great table,wonderful view,excellent food and service provided by your staff. Many thanks!!!!

Service was absolutely amazing! Staff was extremely friendly and food was great. Beautiful counter tops at the hostess stand and bar top. I put a request in for a nice table with a nice view only a few hours before our reservation time and they set me and my wife up with what we believe is the best seat in the house. It refreshing to be treated as well as we were and they definitely raised the bar on our customer experience.

It’s always a great spot for an anniversary or birthday celebration. They’ve been in Newport for five years now and the list of happy customers just keeps growing. Love everything about The Winery!!
