If you like plants and horticulture in general you will love this place! It has everything you could ever ask for but the best time to come is around the holidays. It is decorated and has decorations you simply cannot find anywhere else.
Happy Hour was why we went BUT I would go again in a heartbeat! Yes, HH goes from 5p to closing at the bar. The service was excellent and prices were good. Highly recommend the Asian Chop-Chop salad, and the fusilli carbonara. Nom!
I am not always happy with the restaurant selection in Orange County. Pizzeria Mozza has given me hope! A Mario Batali restaurant that offers delicious food and a fun atmosphere. A MUST if you are in Newport Beach and want something tasty and affordable....more

The location (on the marina in Newport Beach) changed my mind and as Happy Hour ended, the crowd changed. It...more
This hidden gem is my new favorite place for brunch. The bakery goods look amazing but on a Sunday morning, I am all about coffee, I was not disappointed! The latte I ordered was so large I could barely pick it up, perfect blend and not bitter. I had the Haute Special and upgraded to the orange ricotta...more
So... I'm not a fan of anything I consider a chain restaurant. Tommy Bahama's most certainly is just that. It also has good service and (I admit) some really tasty morsels. One of the best things I had was the Blood Orange Margarita. I am all about yummy cocktails and this one I can highly...more
