Highlights

Tucked behind the historic Port Theater in Corona del Mar, you'll find a hidden treasure that won't be a secret for long. Port Restaurant and Bar is an intimate, elegant and comfortable place to duck into after strolling the nearby shops and galleries. Whether you pop in for a pomegranate martini on the sleek patio - decked out with fireplace, flat screen TV, fountain and plum colored sofas - or you opt to relax in the dining room, you'll find a well-trained wait staff, a palate-pleasing menu and an impressive wine list that boasts 40 wines by the glass. Port's dinner menu is a presentation of all-natural beef, fresh fish, free-range chicken and lamb, prepared by Chef Austin, whose roots are right here in Corona del Mar (he's a graduate of CDM High School). He prepares every dish with only market-fresh ingredients and presents them with flair. The Filet Mignon and Braised Short Ribs are melt-in-your-mouth tender and pair wonderfully with the Silverado Vineyards merlot (Napa). Owner Ali Zadeh has the recipe for success: "The food by itself; the atmosphere by itself is not going to bring people back. The whole experience, that's what will bring them back." Who's the chef: Austin C. George, a Corona del Mar native and San Francisco culinary school grad who's worked at Aubergine and as the chef on Quiksilver's private yacht. Details: The former site of short-lived Svelte, and the beloved Trees way before that, is now Port, offering a sophisticated, modern vibe, a short but sweet menu of beautifully executed Cali-Mediterranean-French dishes, and a nice wine list. Zadeh, who lives in the area, bought the property last June and started from scratch to create a "comfortable place for people to come and enjoy good food and wine and get to know about different cultures and tastes."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Olive tapenade starter was excellent - with three different tapenades served with warm pita. Loved the Greek salad followed by Kabob with tasty grilled tomatoes and rice. Live entertainment is always enjoyable, too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The food was great but unfortunately, the service was not. We waited about 5 minutes to be seated... there was no one at the hostess station and someone in the bar area finally let the bus person know we were waiting. He was the one who seated us. There were only about 10 people that were just finishing their meals at the time we arrived, 2 tables and the remnants of a birthday party, with two waitresses on duty. We placed our order after about another 5-10 minutes and only saw the waitress one other time when she briefly asked if the meal was good. we finished our meal and sat waiting for her to come check on us again to see if we needed any boxes for our food, but she never did. We had already made plans in what we wanted for dessert. After about 15-20 minutes of waiting for someone, I finally stood up and walked over the bus person and asked him if he could please get us some boxes for our leftovers. The waitress came over a few minutes later and boxed them up. We decided not to order dessert... didn't want to wait forever for that too, and left. Food was great but service was very disappointing. Probably won't go back.
