This was my birthday lunch with friends and we all enjoyed every bite of food and the service. it was very noisy where we were seated so difficult to hear each other speak, but the food and cocktails more than made up for it. We all had a lovely time.

I love the relaxed, comfortable atmosphere and the food is always delicious. The artichoke appetizer is amazing and so is the Thai shrimp and scallops. I would definitely recommend dining here.

We were seated right on time for our reservation. Service was very good. We were not terribly hungry so we all had salads. We thought they were excellent. We will go back for dinner again.

The food was just ok this time. We have been there 25+ times and this time was just ok...
When we arrived they said they cancelled our reservation because we were a few minutes late.
The parking is tight there with a few restaurants, shops & a grocery store. My parents walk really slow...The salads were good but the Filet Steak w/mushroom sauce wasn't good. We asked for no spice on the Pork Fried Rice and it came with a double dose of pepper on top so we had to wait. The other food was pretty good. The Coconut Shrimp was great, so was the Lobster Grilled Cheese.

Tommy Bahamas is one of my favorite places to dine solo or with many...friendly, great service and accommodates your party of one to foul celebrations both indoors and outdoors. The food is to perfection and always delicious.

We went here for Easter brunch and had a great time. The service was very good and the crab benedict was delicious. The guitarist made the meal perfect. We will definitely come back again. Thanks Open Door for the recommendation.

I love the Tommy Bahamas in Newport Beach. We eat their several times a year. The only thing that I find not so good are the cocktails. I have had to send back several drinks because they are just not that good. My two favorite cocktails are a "Cosmo" and a "Long Island Ice Tea." Both, I have had to send back as they were not made right. I think I am going to stick to wine in the future. Their bartenders need some help.

With all the noise from a big party next to our table, the live music was muffled and it impacted our ability to hear the music and carry on a conversation.

We had a nice lunch. When I reserved, I noted it was in celebration of a birthday. I was surprised there was no mention of a special occasion nor a little dessert.

First time there. Food was excellent. Sat outside on a lovely day. Server was quite efficient and attentive (Brad.)
It is too expensive and far away for us to go quite often but we really enjoyed the experience and the meal.

Great food, great service! Had lunch with a friend, and everything was great. Good overall feel to the restaurant. Lots of light and fresh air. Courteous hostess and wait staff. Everyone was friendly and working hard to create a good experience. Had the shrimp Caesar and iced tea. Shrimp were grilled perfectly, a kiss of smoke and still perfectly tender. The romaine was fresh and crisp and the dressing was prefect. A great experience!
