First for those of you that don't know, Taco Rosa is an upscale version of Taco Mesa, a great place to eat as well, so it does share a few menu items. The Taco Rosas (another location in Irvine) offer a full bar, however, whereas...More

Okay, you're in Newport Beach so be prepared to pay. I found the service good and the atmosphere very nice. My fish tacos were excellent. Next time I host a big group, we're going to Costa Mesa.

We love champagne brunch, particularly buffet, and there don't seem to be many in Newport Beach. Newport Landing is the only one I can think of, and they charge $29 without the champagne. Taco Rosa is off our beaten path - would have to be...More
