Following a narrated Newport Harbor cruise, our group of 31 seniors walked "next door" to the Pavilion for pre-ordered lunches at Harborside. Staff was prompt and courteous, food was very good indeed and just $20/ea. Highly recommended for groups.

We were a group of 10 people who visited on a Saturday night. The table was ready and the service was good. I had the coconut crusted salmon which was delicious. Parking may be a problem, but the restaurant was great.

Went here after our whale watching tour. It’s right next door. Beautiful place and good food. I had the crab cake burger which was amazing but my husbands French dip lacked a little flavor.

My wife picked this out and ordered salmon...a family no-no. It turned out to be excellent without the usual salmon, fishy taste. I had mahi-mahi tacos. The food tasted excellent, the waiter was very attentive, funny, and polite. If you can get a window-side seat...More
