Went there for brunch this past Sunday and had a good time. The service was excellent as the staff was very attentive and friendly. The food was really good and the portions were huge. The $10 bottomless mimosas was a good deal but the Brut...More

Excellent prices ($20 for pecan-crusted trout; $17 for prime ribs on Thursday evenings only); 3.

This is an amazing restaurant for mimosa brunch and football. Whenever I visit Newport I always schedule a visit to the Alley. The food is amazing and the service couldn't be better.

Another stop on my birthday trip. Margaritas are strong and tasty. Very refreshing on a hot day. The bartenders actually engage in conversation with you and more than just"what do you want to drink"

On a random weekend away from San Diego, we stumbled upon this gem in Newport Beach! This unassuming cottage houses $10 bottomless mimosas, a DELICIOUS brunch menu (can't stress delicious enough), and two adorable patios. The service was amazingly friendly, even despite being packed inside....More

I have driven by this place for years but for some reason never stopped in until now. Very surprised. The food, service and atmosphere were all very good and the prices were very fair. The server couldn't have been more helpful
