Delicious dinner and great wine. Service was impeccable. The Brussels sprout leaves were such a refreshing change in standard sides. My ribeye was so tender you could have torn it apart.
Had a great time! Would def go back!
Young kids allowed by parents to roam the grounds. ☹️
Great food and service.
Our table of 4 ran into friends & invited them to join our table - the staff quickly & easily accommodated our request for a party of 6. The food, service (promptness, recommendations, etc) were top notch & always are. The hilarious people watching is the cherry on top.
This place hands down always the best place in Np , we had the New York strip . It was cooked to order, perfection 👌🏽
From the moment you walk in. Love the hostesses, the ambience~ waiters and bartenders. Such a cozy and friendly vibe. Food always over the top amazing!! Thank you “A” for always treating everyone like they are special!!
We finally got out and this was such an amazing choice! Great wine great food great service Steven was amazing and all round great experience!
Consistently brillant. Block Cut NY is perfection and the new appetizer selections are spot on
Always the best! Can’t beat the atmosphere, food and service. Love the wine list and rotating seasonal menus
We go for all of our special occasions to the A. We missed the ambiance of the inside but felt more comfortable outside.
thank you for deliciousness!
We have been a long time resident of Newport and love going to A but won’t be going back soon. Vegas has taken over and the noise level was over the top. Our waiter was awesome and the food was good but has lost it neighborhood appeal.
Let me know when when the masses have moved on...
It was great. Staff was friendly and the food was delicious.
Always enjoy the service and food. The Ahi appetizer is not to be missed. The Wedge Salad was great as well as the Beet Salad. The Halibut, Filet and Ribeye were all excellent. The cocktails are also great.
Fantastic food and service! Love this place!
My wife and I have talked about dining here forever and somehow never made it until now. This might be the best overall restaurant experience we’ve had in anywhere in OC. Our waiter/sommelier (Steven) handled countless tables with ease. The food was incredible and priced appropriately for a steakhouse of it’s caliber. Great service, great food and a great wine list are secondary to the atmosphere. From the minute we walked in I was hooked, red leather booths, dim lighting and old school feel make this place a can’t miss.
Service and food, including valet service, are always the best!!
Phenomenal as usual.
My boyfriend and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary there last week and it was beyond wonderful! He got the filet and I got the salmon along with a ceaser salad. All of the food tasted amazing and the service was especially outstanding. I will definitely be returning back soon!
Loved the outside area . Food was amazing as always - and service was excellent!
We had another great dinner at the restaurant, Jared our server was very professional and suggest great dishes for us. We love the menu and the new tent outside.
Was a great place to enjoy a warm evening!
Amazing food, 5 start service, over all an amazing experience and will be back!!
It's one of our all time favorites. Other than a very pricey menu...we love it!
Cool old-school “steakhouse’ish”.
Meals were perfect. Nothing would or could have made it better.
We're lcal, anmd we'll be back often.
Loved loved loved our experience! The customer service was AMAZING! I mean seriously amazing! I am super picky and was so grateful for how thoughtful the staff was when it came to answering questions, preparing dishes and just offering an awesome experience! Thank you so so much for a phenomenal night! We loved it! Definitely coming back! Highly recommend the bone in rib-eye - it was phenomenal! The asparagus was cooked perfectly and so were the mushrooms. We started off our evening with the steak tartare and the hamachi crisp which was also exquisite! Seriously, you can’t go wrong here!
Oh and the Madeleine’s are “life changing” as our server said! Just do it and thank me later!
Great energy and atmosphere. Lovely greeting at the door. Attentive wait staff. LOVE the plush leather U-shaped booths.
Great place to dine for a special evening... ingredients, service, quality all top notch.
food still top notch! Service great as always. I will never get used to eating in a f_ing tent in a parking lot! OPEN THE RESTAURANTS!!!
Always a special occasion with my wife!
Very disappointed with how they’re handling COVID safety. The restaurant was PACKED. Full bar, large tables of 6+ people. So full security was questioning us coming in to use the bathroom (we dined outside). It’s sad that the majority of patrons can care less about safety and respecting the valet or other staff and the restaurant is acquiescing to this crowd.
We've been coming to A/s since it was the Arches, back in the day, and the food, and atmosphere are always good, and the service is even better. So happy that things are starting to open up again too.
The food was delicious! My friend and I ordered the Miyazaki beef and it melted in our mouth - heaven.
Absolutely amazing service from valet to buss boys. Food was fantastic as well, we’ll be returning!
The restaurant was great, the food delicious and staff very attentive to our needs. Low lit, good vibes music kinda ambiance. Will definitely be back again!
Great night celebrating my husband’s bday! Love A’s!
Great as always. Best food sand service on the West Coast.
A is always impeccable. Thank you for a great experience!
I ordered the dinosaur ribs, baked beans and mac & cheese. Everything was outstanding.
