Alley Restaurant & Bar
For over 22 years, the Alley Restaurant and Bar in Newport Beach is the local's favorite for a dining destination. Specializing in only the best on-site cuts of beef like Filet Mignon and New Zealand Rack of Lamb. And don't forget the freshest seafood like Chilean Sea bass and our famous Sanddabs. The Alley serves as a casual, yet elegant dining experience and by late night as a high energy "Cheers" bar of Newport Beach. Come join us at the Alley and become part of the family!
I recently went back to The Alley, I was shocked to see how much it has changed. I had heard that some things had changed with the new owner, I was hoping the changes were for the better….but come to realize the restaurant is nothing to what it used to be. The Alley is horrible, the service and the staff were awful. The food which was the best part of The Alley doesn’t compare (TERRIBLE!!!). I would not go back! and it saddnes me to say....
hahahaha...sounds like jeff to write a review for himself. lol, you are too much. But in his defense he has truly made the alley a killer place in the last year. The food is amazing and service is perfect everytime. I live on the peninsula and I try to make it here at least a couple times a week. The scene is always friendly and it may be one of the last remaining great local restaurants left.
came in here one night after living in the area for about a year. always was curious about whether or not this place was a neighborhood hangout or actually a good restaurant. either way, went in and came out surprised. from the service with super friendly wait staff and bartenders to impressive food i will make this MY local hangout. had an artichoke to start...cooked to perfection. then had a filet with blue cheese melted on top. one fo the best cuts of meat ive had in a while. the cocktails were nice and stiff and at $6 bucks it was well worth it. i can see why this has become a haven for the locals.
So I went in there for the first time in about 2 years, and wow have things changed. After new ownership the place is just cleaner, the staff is friendly and upbeat, and the food is amazing. Can get pricey for some of the steaks and seafood, but its worth it. The drinks are still nice and stiff as they always have been!
