Nestled in the heart of Corona Del Mar lies the Bungalow. This charming Craftsman style restaurant is minutes from the heart of Newport Beach's premier business and shopping center, Fasion Island, yet it feels miles apart. Rich tones, dark woods, and private booths have made The Bungalow a dining favorite for residents and visitors alike, known for serving PRIME steaks, excellent seafood and magnificent martinis. We also feature an award winning wine list and proudly pour over twenty premium wines by the glass and over 220 premium bottled wines from our wine cellar.

My husband and I always enjoy the bungalow - friendly staff, perfect bartender (Eric), and good food - can’t go wrong. Reminds us of a perfect higher end neighborhood pub!

Bungalow is such a special place... the outdoor patio is beautiful and very safe feeling. Tables are spaced and air is flowing freely through the area. Cocktails and wine list are both amazing ... starters (highly recommend the calamari and grilled artichoke) are delicious ... the corn chowder is infamous (and deservedly so) ... and this is, bar none, the BEST place to have lobster! Perfectly grilled with warm butter on the side ... yum. Steaks are also great and will not disappoint. Service is impeccable. Friendly and attentive.

What a great Happy hour! I loved the scallops and my friend loved the beef tacos. Both soups, French onion and corn chowder we excellent. Great variety of food to chose from. Very friendly and accommodating waitress! PCH does create some traffic noise, but other than that, it's fantastic!

Our meal was the very best we have had in sometime, and we go to a lot of well known restaurants.

it was a little crowded and a little noisy, but times are difficult with the virus.

We will be back!

We love The Bungalow. The grilled salmon salad is outrageously delicious. I ordered it the two weeks in a row along with the grilled artichoke. My husband loved the steak and so did our kids(well 43 is not really a kid). Looking forward to our next dining experience at The Bungalow.

On NYE it was a pre fixe menu. The bone-in ribeye was outstanding. Service was fairly good. The Crème Brule was not very good. Wine choices were good.

We love the Bungalow — but not the dining experience during Covid. Tables are a little too close together and large parties accepted— so when inside their usual (permanent) indoor/outdoor patio or inside the temporary tent - it feels a little too close for comfort.

The food is still delicious as always - but we are less apt to go there during this “pandemic season” for the above reasons.
