Port Restaurant in Corona del Mar, CA

Dining out with my dinner group.  We have been getting together for dinner once a month for three years and we've only repeated two restaurants on the list. This week we went to the Port Restaurant in Corona del Mar.  My friend Ann brought this lovely bottle of red wine.  On Monday nights, the corkage fee is waived if you order 2 entrees. 
I had a side of fresh vegetables and Gnocchi over a bed of spinach.  It was delicious, with just the right balance of flavors.  My friend, Jacquin also had the Gnocchi and a side of bleu cheese mashed potatoes for the ultimate carbo load.

Ginger had a filet, fresh veggies and get this - bleu cheese mashed potatoes.  Beautiful presentation.

Ann had the fish special.  I think the presentation of this plate is amazing, how your eye moves from the green sauce to the top garnishes on the fish.

Here is a view of the inside of the restaurant.  We sat as far back as we could from the nightly entertainment that starts at 8:00pm.  We're are more into having a marvelous meal and conversation, rather than listening to loud music and not being able to hear each other.  We left just as it was starting.
