Food was excellent! It was nice to see a menu that isn't the same as everywhere else. Service was fantastic and decor and ambiance is exactly what we wanted. Casual and cool.

The food was good, especially the fried green tomatoes. It was kind of loud between music and several kids and babies the night we were there.

Breakfast was amazing. Lovely atmosphere. Walking distance from Newport Channel Inn.
Not only did the food taste amazing, but presentation was so appetizing.

Seating was a little tight.

We just had dinner at this little restaurant around the corner from our hotel. It's a cute little restaurant and it's tucked at the end of the block, a block northeast of Pacific Coast Hwy off 62nd Street. It may be small, but the ambience, staff, and food make it a great place to eat. They have a variety of choices and some creative ideas with their food. For starters, we had the shrimp stuffed peppers wrapped in bacon....delicious! For our entrees, we ordered the shrimp and scallop paella and the Chow burger. I could not finish the paella due to the size of the portion and because I wanted to save room for dessert! They have a wonderful variety to choose from and they're not the usual molten lava-brownie-or cheesecake options you normally see at every other restaurant. They have peach cobbler, choco tacos, and banana bread pudding. However, we opted for the butter cake with pecan sauce and it was the best dessert I've had in years! I would definitely come back to this restaurant the next time I'm in Newport Beach and perhaps try their breakfast menu and get more of that butter cake!

We came here because of a recommendation from a near-stranger, and what good advice! We've eaten at the Newport Beach location and also the Costa Mesa location. WOW. The restaurant is on the small side, so you may need to wait, especially for breakfast. The kitchen closes down for about 20 minutes between breakfast/lunch, so that may cause a bit of a wait. This time we had lunch, and the Tres Amigos (3 unique/different enchiladas) were on point, as the waiter suggested. He almost got giddy when I ordered them. Pork, chicken, beef, and one with mole that was incredible. Hubby got the Cuban Pork sandwich, and it was great. My brother-in-law had a taster set of rose wines--nice touch! Prices are quite reasonable for what you will get, and if you aren't famished, consider sharing. Portion size is very good.
