Great Restuarant! I came here with my wife for our anniversary and we couldnt be happier. We walked in a presently suprised at what a fun and lively enviornment it was. We were right away greeted by the manager and only had to wait a few minutes to get a great table, the manager graciously appolgized because of the wait which was very thoughtful. The place was amazing...live music, great waitors and waitresses, prompt service, and excellent food for great prices. My wife and I couldn't believe how affordable the menu was for such great food. I dont know what this first reviewer is talking about...it was a great night... good music...great food....affordable..good conversation...good service, what more could you want? That reviewer must be one of those pain in the butt customers who complains about everything. This is a place to have a good time with good people which you rarely get nowadays with restuarants in newport beach. It was really down home family service blended into a upscale hip atmosphere. Our waiter Jim was great, a young, tall, surfer who was very helpful with everything on the menu....and hes a great singer too! I highly recommend this restuarant for anyone...couples out on a date or young professionals looking for a nice drink and a quality meal. REGATTA is the best.

Pros: great location, great people, great food

Cons: none that I can see

First of all, their waiters are singing waiters - they were so loud you could not have a decent conversation at the table. Secondly, the waiters were so impressed with themselves, obviously there only to be discovered by someone, and made very little effort to service their customers. We waited 1/2 hour just to get our menus and have them ask if we wanted a drink. We were never told of the specials (we had to ask), and we had to ask for water. Thirdly, the food was incredibly disappointing. Not only did we wait for over 1 1/2 hours, but the food was not at all what the menu described. The salads were served with a watered down dressing. The shrimp and scallop with saffron risotto was made with regular long grain rice, anyone who has had risotto would know this, and it was not made with saffron - it was a very light runny tomato base sauce.. The fact it was made with regular rice made it terrible. When we complained about the service and the food, we received only excuses. They insisted we order another dish in which they produced within 5 minutes (why did the others take 1 1/2 hours??) and then they had the nerve to charge the us the more expensive price of the replaced order. Unbelievable - I rarely complain about restaurants and certainly never make it known to the restaurant owner and waiters, but this was the ultimate of bad service and food. Would never recommend this place to anyone. Amy the waitress was incredibly cocky and arrogant which did not help matters. She chose to argue with all of us about the food, which escalated the bad experience even more.
