New Years Eve

  • j

Any suggestions for New Year's Eve (early seating) in Orange County. Looking for an elegant setting with preferably a great prix-fixe dinner and of course superb service. Last year we did The Ritz Restaurant & Garden and it was perfect.

  1. Jerry,
    Look at the Sutton Place Hotel in Newport Beach. Their restaurant (the name escapes me now) has terrific wine cellar. I have attended winemaker dinners there and they are very well done and the food was great. They do promote a New Year dinner party.

      Aubergine in NewPort Beach would probably meet your criteria.

        Thanks Mike. A couple of posts last month indicated that their service is very poor when they're busy.

        To quote, "Sadly, service suffers at Aubergine on the weekend when they are inevitably booked wall to wall. They are to some extent victims of their own success."
