AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Romantic): Modern food, personable staff and an elegant old world dining room with spectacular views of the ocean, make this my fave for a romantic evening out.
Historic. Perched on a cliff, this restaurant located within a mansion affords breathtaking views of Newport Beach. If you seek an elegant dining experience, try the chef's tasting menu with a set wine pairing. The New England-inspired tasting menu may include striped bass with wilted spinach, artichokes, chanterelle mushrooms, double-smoked bacon and roasted tomato in a bouillabaisse sauce. For dessert, the spiced pear soufflé is divine when it's available. Setting the mood are fine, linen-draped tables topped with fresh-cut roses.
