I am NOT a Newport Beach rich lady, but come from lowly Huntington Beach, am retired, and live on a meager pension. I've been to the restaurant several times with friends and we did not find it pricey; enjoyed the food. (Have you tried having a decent lunch at Mimi's or an Olive Garden lately?) I've ordered the tuna tartine, with 5 slices of bread, and was wishing I could take part of it home-almost too much to eat. Will return again and again. Service is always good. Perhaps restaurant reviewers are like music and film critics...I usually love what they hate!
