Rehearsal dinner in Newport beach?

I know you ladies will help with some great ideas for a place! My mind is becomming more and more useless as the big day gets closer, and I can't seem to come up with anything!!! Any of you know of a fun place in Newport near Fashion Island or surrounding area??? Thanks in advance!

I love Javier's!! If you want something casual, "Roman Cucina" has great food.

Wow, that was fast! Looks like I'll be looking at some of those websites here shortly! We want to keep it casual and it looks like some of the suggestions on here could work out. Thanks!


 


*jackieg & khill* - is that the same "Javiers" as the one down in the spectrum? We both love that place !!!!


*jharkins* - we love Muldoons too, just not sure if the rest of the group will. We'll probably keep that as one just for us as one of our "secret date spots" !!!


 


*HMM* - Someone suggested the Cannery to us too, but do they have dishes without fishes for the few people who aren't fans?

Yes, we had all sorts of food... (Its not only seafood- I hate seafood haha)


BUT- we decided to order off their catering appetizer menu to save money- rather then plated dishes- and everything was still great!!!  They are called 'appetizers' b/c they are just smaller portions, but you can still get steak, teriaki chicken skewers, etc.  It allowed for more mingling as we got up and down for food.  Plus with the drinks and bread, we were all full...  Just an idea, it helped us have many options and with the bill! We got half the pation closed off for my bridal shower...

Hi!! What's your budget? I think Roman Cucina is a good option and if you are watching your dollar The Old Spaghetti Factory in newport is a good option too! the restaurant is very nice and I think the food is great!
