It seemed good and friendly until I read that a reviewer deemed this place for the "Well-Heeled". Count me out, my shoes have rubber soles. Too much of Newport has had to cater to the well-heeled,so much so that I look for the opposite,

Great menu, everything from seafood, salads, steaks to great Kobe Sliders!! The view is great and they have done a remodel of the restaurant and the name, now Back Bay Bistro. They have awesome martinis and a great happy hour menu. Watching the boat launch is entertaining!!!

Formaly known as the Back Bay Cafe, this restaurant has been completely renovated and renamed "Back Bay Bistro"

Patio dining with retractable roof overlooking stunning views of the Bay. Upscale but casual.
They have done an incredible job, from the decor, the new menus and extensive new wine list.
This will know doubt be a "must go" for a great dining experience in Newport Beach.
From their great appetizers to Seafood to Steaks everything was great. Fantastic Bar with more great views. Also their popular brunch is still a favorite. Suggest reservations as the luncheon we attended was packed.

We had a good experience, casual atmosphere, friendly ,and good service. The patio and view was great. The inside dining area does not have a view, but they certainly do not have plastic table cloths as one person wrote. ...glass tops with linen tablecloths and napkins, nice. The seafood chowder was awesome and the service was fast and friendly. Sunday brunch is great, great mashed potato martini and lots of champagne for a pretty good price.

This restaurant/cafe has a great location, with a amazing view of the Newport Beach Back Bay. It also has a very large outdoor seating area, with heating lamps for when it's chilly. When I went for lunch (in January) it was a little to cold to sit outside, even with the heaters. The decor inside leaves A LOT to be desired. It was like a high school cafeteria. From the pictures on the wall and the plastic table cloths, I felt like I was back in the 80's. Also, the food was average at best. I had the chicken salad. If your going for a cocktail after work, it's great, otherwise choose something else for lunch. Service was extremely efficient. Parking is free when you get it validated by the restaurant.
