Tradition by Pascal is really an excellent traditional French restaurant in Newport Beach. Although located in a strip mall, the dining room is very quiet, pleasant and beautifully adorned with fresh roses; the service is very professional; and the food is very well executed contemporary, but yet traditional French cuisine. we went there this evening to celebrate an anniversary and were very well pleased. This is a first class place and highly recommended. The Zagat recommendation of 27 for food is spot on!
