Gulfstream, Newport Beach - Go for the Crabcakes!

torta basilica | Jun 1, 2003 08:21 PM

Formerly Cowboy Seafood, in the Corona del Mar Plaza, is Gulfstream. Friends asked us to joing them, wouldn't have been my first choice, but...

Got there at 7:15 - waited 2 plus hours for a table for 9. At least the patio is fun & big comfortable Adrionack Chairs & great people-watching. Poor selection of wines by the glass. One very harried waitress serving all of us. Finally got the table & it was 2 fixed tables separated by about 2 feet. Not exactly what I would call friendly service. Calamari were ok, not super flavorful. But the crabcakes were awesome - huge chunks of crab, barely any breading, in a wonderful whole grain mustard sauce. Entrees pretty unremarkable, but those crabcakes were just terrific!
