W Cafe & Restaurant is a hidden gem!
Located in Newport Beach just past the back bay, W Cafe and Restaurant is situated in the same center as Gratitude Cafe. Be warned....its actually slightly behind the front stores. You get to it by walking in between 2 buildings. Just look for the W Cafe sign and the sidewalk tents. There is a large outdoor eating area plus a full bar on the inside of the restaurant. Once you get to it, you'll be so happy because its delicious!
This is the second restaurant for W Cafe and Restaurant. The first location is in Irvine. However, only this location serves high tea on the weekends.
The menu is pretty simple. There's a few appetizers, a few entrees and three dessert options. I went for dinner (they just started serving dinner late October). Everything we had was super spectacular. Everything had so much flavor and was beautifully plated. The service was amazing. Everyone was so kind and nice to us. They only and I really do mean only hiicup was the braised short ribs. They were so dry and tough. The potatoes and the sauce that it was served with was amazing so I really do believe that it was just an off night for the short ribs. I would definitely re-order them again as everything else we had was phenomenal!
I very enjoyed myself and chatting with the owner who checked up on us several times while we were eating. Please try it. You won't regret it. Such an amazing treat. I'll DEFINITELY be back.

The food at this restaurant was provided complimentary or at a discounted price, however all opinions are 100% mine. A free meal does not buy a good review.
