We went off-peak time, and got a table outside, overlooking all. So beautiful! We drank wine and had appetizers which were great. Salmon slider was find and the salad was large. Margarita was delicious.

(6 pictures)The restaurant was closed for a while while it was being redone. The first time we went back, it was mid-week, off-season, and we were the only ones in the whole restaurant the whole time, and our favorite item had been taken off the menu. Very sad. We decided to try it one more time. This time, it was very crowded so we were happy to see that they were doing better. Also, our favorite item had been put back on the menu. We asked the server and she said that, in effect, that so many people liked it that it got added back. Service was only so-so as she seemed distracted or was maybe just busy. We ordered only 1 meal to share but she brought us two by mistake. She took it back but then still charged us for it. The other couple and us ordered 2 soups between us, and we got charged for 3. They willingly corrected it, but it was disconcerting that we were overcharged $40 that I just happened to catch. The most disappointing part, was that our favorite dish (Opakapaka--fish) was not done as well as it used to be. So sad. The view & atmosphere are nice, and other food may be better. At least we were there on a 30% discount coupon.

The staff is very friendly and the view from the deck is fun and nice to be outside but the oysters weren't very tasteful at all. The drinks were good and the poke appetizer was good.

We haven’t been to the USA in a while but the Sunday Brunch was something that seemed to be an institution.

Maybe previous brunches were all in hotels and maybe my memory has embellished the variety and quality of what was on offer. But this was disappointing.

The omelette station was the best bit, the rest was just any other breakfast buffet!

... but I am rating them based on the standard THEY set. Given how exceptional everything about the Newport Landing has been, they set a very high standard that we have come to expect and they did not adhere to for purposes of this visit's review. It would be like dining at the Jules Verne Restaurant in the Eiffel Tower (which I have) only to discover that they boarded up the windows!

To be sure, anyone else would have rated the Newport Landing a 5 across the board. But in their enthusiasm to "upgrade" their restaurant they eliminated the best table in the restaurant as far as I am concerned.

The table I am referring to is that skinny table that was at the top of their serving area in front of the bar stools. It provided the most commanding view of the Newport Harbor and Balboa Ferry available from any restaurant in Newport Beach.

For the record, our food was wonderful, the service exceptional, the view (such as we had) very good. But it would have been so much better from that special bar table ... that is now GONE. Look at the attached picture.

I hope the owners take one last look at why they removed that table and re-think replacing it. It's not too late for them to change back to the original configuration. As it is, it looks like wasted space as well as an accident waiting to happen.

I really love the Newport Landing Restaurant. But it is also my hope that this review is a wake-up call.
