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.

We had a fabulous birthday celebration here! The cocktails were excellent, as was the food and service. Ask to sit in the outdoor room w/the fireplace, as the tent doesn't have much ambience.

Good service, good food, but not with the money. We went for a special occasion (as mentioned at time of reservation)(Birthday) and wasn’t acknowledged by waiter about the special occasion. There was also a $7-8 processing fee for card card payments, so with that being said, this visit was our first and definitely our last. There are lots of other steakhouses where I can get better service (ie: acknowledge bday celebration) w/o the up-charge for a credit card transaction.

Been here a number of times and the quality just wasn't quite up to expectations this time. Steak was a little too fatty and unevenly cooked. Asparagus almost cold. Still a good spot but didn't get it right this time.

Positives:
- Miso glazed sea bass was amazing!
- Ahi tuna salad was very good.
Negatives:
- Butternut squash ravioli were impossible to chew. Since they blistered them on one side, it made the skin on ravioli non chewable. The staff removed it off our bill which was nice (we tried only 1 off the dish).
- Service of the waiter could be better, MUCh better. He was rushing with taking our order, rolling his eyes on a small and simple request about food. I don't seem to grasp why was he rushing if they are at 25% capacity... He did however spend more time and even smiled at his clients at bigger tables.
And the last but not the least he brought out our appetizers before even asking for our drinks order... I have no comment about that.

This review would have been 5* except the owners have decided to add a 3% surcharge for using credit cards and are disguising it in an incomprehensible way, Don't nickel and dime me when I am paying to eat in one of the most expensive restaurants in the area!!

Food was very good. Our server was excellent. We requested seating through Open Table to be placed by the outside fireplace to celebrate our son's 30th birthday. We arrived and were told to wait at a table in a tent that was set up in the parking lot. We ordered drinks and waited for our seating. The waiter and hostess said it would be about 5-10 minutes. The manager ( an older rude man ) finally came to our table and said it would be at least 90 minutes to get seated near the fireplace. Given we drove from San Juan Capistrano, we reluctantly decided to stay. The older rude man consistently visited all the tables in this tent asking patrons if they were ok. He never came to our table, so my wife stopped him and asked why he did not visit our table? He was extremely rude and said "I am done with you".
It's a shame. The food was very good, and our overall service was good, even in a parking lot tent. The old man ruined our evening and we will NEVER go back.

We went to The Bungalow for our anniversary, and the staff made us feel special. We got the best “front row seats in the house,” and service was excellent...consistent with our last visit. We got the sea bass and the scallops dishes, and they were both delicious. We got the sea bass the last time, and it was JUST as good this time around.

My first time returning since March 2020, and I can’t tell you how rewarding it was! It was wonderful to see the safe environment and smiles behind the masks, and food that seems to have improved if that’s possible! Great to see you all and I’ll be back very soon God bless and stay safe

Had an early reservation and seated promptly. Food was served hot and fairly quickly.
Both dishes were very tasty (Pork Chops & Salmon). The whole onion, served with the chops, could have been cooked a bit longer but still good.

This was only our second time there, the first time, about a month ago, was amazing, food and service were excellent. Last night was just average, didn’t have the wow factor we had last time. We are not giving up, trying again next weekend for a birthday celebration, hoping last night was just an off night!
