They play the best music and it is a perfect place to celebrate a birthday or special occasion. The drinks are expensive, but well worth the experience and aesthetics of the place.

My husband and I had dinner here with another friend and all of us really enjoyed it. We sat in the newly opened patio, overlooking the bay. The view was very nice and relaxing, great for any social gathering. We ordered the trio plate as appetizer and it was delicious! My husband normally doesn't eat lamb, but he absolutely loved it! It was very juicy and tender. I loved the shrimp tempura because it was not greasy like most tempuras and the shrimp was very soft and tender. The Japanese sauce that came with it had a light wasabi flavor and it was the perfect combination. All of us shared the Gourmet Slider Combination Platter, which included filet mignon, ground angus beef, cheese, grilled chicken, blackened ahi, pork, and crab cake. The filet mignon slider also had sauted mushrooms in it. All of them tasted good and the presentation was great. My favorites were the crab cake, filet mignon slider, and especially angus beef slider. The onion straws in the angus beef slider was very tasty. It??s very unique, I??ve never been to a restaurant that serves crispy onion straws with their slider. The crab cake slider tasted so juicy and soft that I mistakened it for fish at first. My husband really liked their blackened ahi because of the seasoning. Get the cheese slider if you??re a cheese person because it??s loaded with cheese. The combo platter also came with sweet potato fries, which we all agreed tasted better than Veggie Grill, they??re not too salty or greasy. We also order a side of calamari and it was the best calamari I??ve ever had! It was crispy on the outside but soft on the inside and the sauce was superb! It tasted like an exotic Thai dish. I highly recommend their calamari. Overall, the food was fantastic because you could taste the freshness in the food they serve. Our waiter was really friendly and recommended some of their most popular items on the menu and the specials. The price range seemed reasonable to us. It's actually very affordable and less expensive than some of the restaurants that I've been to in Newport Beach. The ambiance is great, right on the bay, and the interior is beautiful. It's a really fun place to have lunch or dinner with friends and family.

I have never felt so uncomfortable at a restaurant in my life. I came to this place expecting friendly customer service but did not receive that at all. First off I am Asian American and so is my girlfriend, we came in there and immediately get odd looks from the greeter and the young man in the blonde hair. He asks me if I wanted a specific spot to be seated, I ask by the window near the water. He disregards that and looks over a this lonely corner of the restaurant and says, "You can sit here." In my mind I'm going, "Why the hell did you just ask me where I want to sit if you're going to choose for me?" The food was tasty but not satisfying, and was not worth what I paid for, for $25 a plate. The vibe I was getting from this restaurant was horrible. The employees act like rich snobs and look at you like you're an alien if you don't seem like the norm that goes there. Hated it. Pretty place though....

I have been to 3 thirty 3 a handful of times now and I can't get enough of it. It is perfect for any occasion: family, friends, date, alone, even children. My favorite is that they stay open until 2am every night. So if we feel like having a late night bite to eat, we can! They are also open for brunch with an amazing Bloody Mary Bar and build your own burrito. I am a big breakfast person and everything met my expectations. Their drip coffee is fantastic as well.

My favorite dinner choice their is the Nori-Sesame Seared Ahi. All their starters are amazing too. From the Lollipop Lamb Chops, to the Oven-Roasted Dates or even the Truffle chips, you can never go wrong!

The atmosphere is wonderful sitting at the low couch seating by the harbor view is my favorite. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Went to meet some friends and had one of the BEST times i have ever had in Newport. The crowd there was very up beat and good looking. We had some very good appetizers and you can really taste the drinks - they're big and strong. Can't wait to go back the outdoor deck was almost done - this summer will be great, also found out they have boat slips available to use right below the restaurant. THE PLACE ROCKS.

the setting and food quality makes 333 one of my goto spots for a relaxed business lunch. we took a visiting scholar from mexico city there and he loved it, comparing it to restaurants in cadaques, spain. try the thai calamari and don't miss the fries!

I just moved to Newport beach about a month ago. Coming from San Francisco, surrounded by endless gourmet restaurants and tastes that drove my taste buds wild, I can be one tough critic when it comes to food.

After taking a boat ride with my husband on our new neighbors boat for a little welcome to Newport Beach cruise, from the harbor we spotted 3thirty3. My neighbor told us how wonderful the restaurant was, and I laughed inside with disbelief that he hardly knew what he was talking about. Later that week I was tempted to try.

After my first bite of the Lobster Ravioli I was hooked. Of course I sneaked a few bites of my husband's fresh salmon and was in heaven. The salmon was so fresh, it fell apart as I slipped my fork into the last bite. The bed of potatoes and marinated vegetable salad it laid upon was absolutely delicious.

Aside from the irresistible menu, the atmosphere of the restaurant made us feel warm and comfortable. The ambiance lures you in making the restaurant perfect for a nice dinner for two, or even a place to bring family and friends. The view of the harbor as we sat at the booths against the windows really gives the room a unique feel. The low tables and comfortable seats makes it a little more intimate.

And I must credit the fantastic service! Everyone we encountered was very personable, making the night more than just "going out to eat", but an experience in itself.

A few nights after, we had just left a late night movie and were starved! Passing by 3thirty3, we noticed that it was still open. As I Started to get the midnight munchies we went in for a quick bite and were handed a full late night menu which starts at 11:30 pm. I was so excited to see the sweet potato fries and the Kobe Beef Gorgonzola Burger still available! And to top it all off we rant into the manager who we met at our previous visit and he remembered our names! It's those little things that make you want to come back for more.

Pros: best management/service

i went there for the first time the other day and the bartender brought me my drink within the first 5 minutes that i sat down. we only ordered appetizers: the ribs, sliders and calamari. Although they were all amazing, the calamari took the cake. It is INSANE! if u go YOU MUST try it... its not ur average calamari it has a completely different flavor. The atmosphere here was wonderful & there were tons of beautiful people hanging out and i can't think of one thing i didn't like.

Pros: food. environment. energy. people. design.

Seared Ahi Tuna - Pretty basic you would think , but the only thing I could do was soak it in the Wasabi sauce for some flavor. Sauce was weak at best and steamed rice was dry.

Other diners with me - food tough or bland. $200 and McDonalds would have been better.

The only thing that made it worth it was chillin with my girls!

We come here every time we drive in from Vegas - well worth the trip - on our last visit we made it for lunch on Friday (build your own burger or chix sandwich) HUGE, great value and made 2 meals out of one. Then came back the next day for the Breakfast Burritos - well worth saving up the extra calories - and the build your own bloody Mary Bar is the bomb! Keep up the great work and GO HAWKS!!!!

OK....where to begin? I called this place seeing the restaurant looked nice and elegant and decided to dine her for my 4 yr anniversary with my girlfriend. Im from out of town so i was expecting good service and a good atmosphere. However, moment we walked in one of the servers saw us waiting and decided to pass us by and not ask us to be seated. Finally the manager did the same until i had to ask her if we can please be seated! ( there was probably 8 people there not busy at all!!!!) we sat down and they close there full dinner menu at 11pm. we got there at 10:50 and they decided to give us the menu with just appetizers instead. I ordered a cesear salad and it came with anchovies. I told them i didnt like it and i just wanted it taken off and the server rolled her eyes and never EVER came back to ask how our food was or anything. I felt like walking out on her being she gave pooooorrr service. The service is HORRIBLE ..as well as the MANAGMENT! stay away unless you look like ur from "the oc" if u know what i mean theyll give you GOOD service because i seen them helping out all the white people and i happen to be hispanic! i hate this place.

I have been here 5-6 times and each time am shocked at the lack of service when sitting at the bar. It seems as if they hire "model type" bartenders- both men and women- who are in no hurry to cater to the customers. I often wait 10 minutes without even an acknowledgement and then they are not that friendly and service is painfully S-L-O-W. Food is okay but I would expect better service in this price range. Nice ambiance otherwise...

When I try a new restaurant I always have this feeling of optimism that something magical might happen. In the back of my mind I reason that in the worst case I won't love the food or some aspect of the ambience but at least I'll have a new adventure. After a first visit to 3 Thirty 3, I'm forced to extend my definition of worst case to getting insulted by the staff and forced to pay for food that never arrived. Not quite the magic or adventure I was hoping for.

A standard model for the success of a bar/restaurant is to create enjoyable experiences to earn future business. On my last visit to 3 thirty 3, I was hoping to celebrate one of life's small successes with food and wine. Unfortunately my evening was ruined by a rude and incompetent staff. Perhaps they were collectively having a bad day or perhaps the business model is to cater to patrons who appreciate rudeness and incompetence. I won't be returning to find out.

I have been living in Orange County for 19 years and eat out about once a week. I tried this place with a friend a couple weeks ago. The service was atrocious and the food was inedible. We paid the $73 bill for the couple bites required to reach the aforementioned assessment of the food and went elsewhere for some pizza. The best thing I can say is that neither of us got sick. Not recommended.

I found this place thru citysearch and been there couple of times and highly recommend to others. Food is decent and great ambience. It seems more like a bar cause they got a huge bar in the middle of the restaurant but i guess it's good for people watching and hang out. I highly recommend this place except for one waitress named Shawna, she doesn't smile and not so friendly. Other than that, it's all good.

Every time I've been here I've gone with a group of girlfriends and have had the best time. I've had the scallops and the macaroni and cheese (watch out it has bacon on it!). They also have a killer pomegranate martini that I always have to get. There is usually a pretty long wait but waiting in the bar area is not bad. The bar is in the center of the restaurant and is long on both sides. The restaurant is on the water and valet parking is pretty much the only option.

I live in L.A. County but needed to find a decent fun restaurant in Newport for a Bachelorette Party Dinner. We had the best time. It's nice enough to dress up and not be out of place, but not so fussy that you had to have a coat and tie for men. The prices were great and not so outrageous that I broke the bank throwing a party. The service was wonderful from the minute we walked in. The seating is great lots of tall tables and booths that were very comfortable and clean. The view is tremendous and the bar is very pretty. Our food was fabulous we tried three appetizers all which were super yummy. Then for our main dishes, we had everything from the Kobe beef burger, steak, chicken potpie, and a couple different fish entrees. Each girl loved their meal. Our drinks were constantly checked on and being refreshed but never did we feel rushed through even though it was a super crowded Sat. night.
My big sug. is make a reservation because it get's so busy. Lot's of fun people watching.!!!! The only Con is they don't take reservations after 6:30 on the weekend.

This restaurant is a favorite for Newport Locals, if you went to school in Newport you are guaranteed to see someone you know on a weekend late night. It gets PACKED after 11 on Friday and Saturday, good or bad, it all depends on what you are looking for. The food is great, I loved the seared ahi. I went for lunch and it was much quieter and the view is awesome....

My feelings are mixed about this restaurant since it is hard not to love a restaurant that offers a romantic view of the marina. There are tables with high chairs for your viewing delight as you dine. Unfortuntately I didn't care for the menu concept which included a simple name of an entree with virtually no description, for example one entree was potato crusted halibut...that's it! There was no mention of any side dishes, how it was cooked, etc. The dessert menu was vague too and it was in need of updating since it mentioned that they served ice cream but we learned that was discontinued for gelato. I was disappointed that our waitress didn't know about the dessert menu update or what flavors of gelato were being served that evening. It was nice of her to check but it would have been better if she knew that information off the top of her head. As far as our food, well, I enjoyed the trio appetizer (a bit of a hefty price tag at $45 though). I thought my fish was oversauced but the fries in the fish and chips entree were nice and crunchy like they should be. So, you may or may not like the food. Skip the dessert and go elsewhere. But I definitely recommend it for sipping cocktails or some wine, get there early and enjoy the changing colors of the sunset over the marina.
