Description: Since 1965 The Quiet Woman Restaurant & Bar has been a favorite spot for generations of locals. Tucked away behind bougainvillea and brick, the warm, cozy atmosphere welcomes you home whether you are a weekly regular or a first time guest. Contrary to trendy and far from fussy, the QW is all about sophisticated comfort food, well crafted cocktails, a passionate love of wine and a vibrant late night, live music scene after dinner on most nights. Our demographic defies definition. Stop in and see for yourself !

Most of the time when my husband and I say let's go out to dinner, Quiet Woman is our choice. The menu pretty much remains the same, but there is a good selection of meats, seafood, and chicken. Soup or salad is included with dinner, keeping the cost down if you like. They make a great vodka martini, however they have a full bar and a nice wine selection. Love love this place! Ambience: old-style darkly lit, big booths, tables and a bar.

This restaurant has been in Corona Del Mar for many many years and unfortunately it shows in all the worst ways. The service is marginal at best and they have a few FUN rules like you can absolutely only bring in one bottle of wine NO EXCEPTION and my favorite rule is if you spilt your bill with the other guests they automatically put a 20% gratuity on EVERYONES bill at your table....WOW and these are the best qualities of the Quiet Woman restaurant....

The drinks were sugary, the apps were barely average if you like overcooked food and the entrees were TASTELESS and OVER COOKED. My favorite part was the Apple Crumble with ice cream which was actually worse than the rest of the already BAD BAD BAD BAD meal....

My suggestion would be to completely remodel the entire establishment to get them current with the most recent decade and if you are going to continue to serve bland food you should charge bland prices as well....

The Quiet Woman is a small jewel that serves delicious and high quality foods, The bar side of the restaurant has two TV screens if you want to watch a game and enjoy the most delicious sandwiches or the 'QW', The best hamburger in Orange County. For those special occasions, the dinner side of the restaurant serve the highest quality steaks and seafood at mid range prices along with all of the accompaniments. And excellent selection of wines with generous pours and ice cold beer.

This is one of our "go to" places when we are in Newport Beach. The food is consistent and the live bands are fantastic! Definitely a place to try.
