"I've had a boy's golf trip in CDM for years and it would not be the same without a trip to the A. It's one of Newport's finest restaurants, great food and great service."

"We really enjoyed our dinner at A Restaurant. Our waiter (Steven) was awesome, excellent knowledge of wine and also had great suggestions regarding the menu. The food was outstanding! The bread was warm, octopus and salad were great, ditto for the pork tenderloin. The scallops were good, except they were too salty and way too much garlic. The portions were on the small side, but they were sufficient. We will definitely be back!"

"This location is a true gem. The food is hands down the best in Orange County. The rib eye steak is phenomenal and the bone marrow is unbelieveably savory and delicious. I will be returning, for I simply can't get enough. Finally, a restautant in OC that can attract a humble foodie such as myself."

"Perfect spot to celebrate the holidays. Cozy and intimate with comfortable booths and wood decor. Service impeccable. Kudos to Lindsay! The food was fantastic. Spanish Octopus starter was wonderfully plated and delicious. Beet/goat cheese salad refreshing and delightful. John Dory special as well as the Chateaubriand special both recommended if you are there when they are offered. Thank you A for a very special evening!"

"First time at "A" for me after many years living in Newport Beach. Won't be the last! Beautiful "old school" ambience. Gracious service. Everything we ordered was outstanding. Particularly great Old Fashioned. Pricey, so not an everyday dining experience for most. But worth every penny. Try the pierogis -- so special."

"I made reservation a couple months in advance for xmas eve, party of 4. I specifically asked for a nice booth in the back room. I then called a few days before to confirm by reservation and table request, and was told "I will take care of it". Upon arrival, the short blonde hostess took us to a ½ booth..maybe you could squeeze 3 people in. I stated my dislike of table and she said "we are very busy tonight, those other booths are for bigger parties". We sat down, but as i looked around, there were may other parties of 4 at larger booths, and there were several booths available. I went back up to hostess stand and explained my disappointment, and that the ½ booth would not work for us. She very reluctantly moved us, making snide remarks while giggling, Well, I guess we will just have to cram the larger groups into the smaller tables", as if her giggling would make it OK to be extremely rude. I have never had a hostess talk like that to me, and if it were not xmas eve, i would have left. I have eaten here many times, and never had a bad experience. But I will not return as long as she is the hostess. I hope the management figures it out soon. There are too many places to eat in Newport to put up with rude behavior."
