we went to Park Avenue with another couple and brought one special bottle. We were told by the hostess that it wasn't allowed and that she could hold the bottle for us. It was as if they didn't trust the customer to even keep it in hand. Even after telling them that we were going to order a white and another red we saw on the wine list, they still didn't let us open the special wine for my friends b-day. I can understand a limit on bottles or laughing at those that bring in grocery store wines, but I think it's a big mistake to not allow people to bring in a special bottle for a special occasion, especially when we explained we were going to order 2 more bottles from the list. When so many good places allow BYOB in Orange county, it's a mistake in my opinion. I have already heard from 3 other friends that will not go back for this reason.

by the way, Rosine's in Anaheim Hills does it right. No corkage if your order a bottle from the list. Plus his prices are very reasonable.

I recall receiving a curt email newsletter from Park Avenue regarding their decision to disallow BYO. It was so off-putting that I have not returned since. I like their food, but there are too many good restaurants out there that allow, even welcome, BYO, and I'd rather patronize those establishments instead.

I must say I have no interest to know anything about Park Avenue. Pathetic.

Also, I consider it perhaps the best & most interesting list in OC. Hagoop has a great palate and gets some great finds.

plus Hagoop and his family along with his staff are awesomely good people. And the menu that Mama rosine has come up with is the bomb.

Does anyone know if Fratello's is still $0 corkage?

Last couple times at Steakhouse 55 (Disney Convention Center) no corkage. But I also gave the Som some wine and old Ports to try :)

Oh, and a really good steakhouse too.
I'm a Port drinking fool!

a'roma ristorante (la palma) has $15 corkage...
they are also able to sell the bottles on their wine list at a discount (i believe 40% off their wine list pricing)
i was able to cop 2 bottles of 08 opus one at $160/btl last time... might go back for their insignia next time :P
the line separating being obnoxious and sarcatic is not as thick as you think... especially on the internet.

No. We went there recently and they charged. Since I don't go there much any more, Frenchie, I didn't push it. I think Robo may have got a few waived but they did charge us for some of them (we had about 5 or 6 on the table).

ARC Food & Libations (Costa Mesa) offers free corkage (1 bottle per couple). Not sure how much they charge per extra bottle though.

We had a very good lunch there last week. That burger is insane. Btw did you catch their corkage on additional bottles? They waived ours on the three bottles we brought in because "You said $0 over the phone."

We also argued that we WERE three couples, though our partners were not in attendance, and thus should be granted the "1 bottle/couple" exemption.

Maj. Franks, the food was very good, not just the burger, but also their interpretation of a Cubano sandwich. And the beer place across the way, Iron Press, is a nice stop after eating.

Selanne Steak Tavern in Laguna Beach. $20 per. Teemu's new restaurant, been open for only a couple months. Took over what used to be the old French 75. Place looks awesome. Starters were fantastic. Steaks, not so much, which is a shame since that's what they're supposed to specialize in.

Fig & Olive charges $35 for the first bottle, $45 for each subsequent bottle. The restaurant itself is gorgeous, but the food and service need work.

Yikes. But since they only do a 150%-200% mark up, why would you need to bring your own wine [wow.gif] Looks like a pass for me.

I see a 300-350% markup on the wines I looked at. But there are some "deals." The 2000 Krug is $495 for example.

Cork changed at 370 Common. Now $15 each, max of two (from zero, only one). I don't mind the change, as before with only one bottle, for say 4 people, it didn't pencil. Now, 2 couples can each bring a bottle and share the wines and cover a reasonable cork fee.

free corkage and very good food... incluing a dish titled ???? ????
supposedly they only allow you to be there for 2 hrs/reservation. but perhaps having one of the later reservations made it ok to stay longer....

Shuck in Costa Mesa is corkage free at the moment. It's owned by the same guys who run ARC Libations, which limits free corkage to just 1 bottle per couple.

At worst, they'll just move you to their outdoor patio. That's what they did to a friend and me, but most of our party had already left anyways.

Went to Noguchi last week. I forgot about the OC Wine Mart deal. Thanks for the reminder. I hope you are joking about the Sushi being meh. Head and shoulders above anything I am aware of in the immediate area. I mean you can get a terrific piece of fish that is not deep fried, topped with mayonnaise and finished in a pool of ponzu.

The first time I went to Noguchi, I enjoyed it. As for my subsequent visits, they were a bit lackluster. I mean, just look at the bluefin tuna I got last week. Stringy, poorly presented, and tasted as boring as it looked.

I prefer Nana San and Sushi Koto (not in immediate area, as Noguchi requires a special trip for me). Noguchi's food and decor feel more minimalist, so I can get why people like it. To each their own! [cheers.gif]

Oh! James, there's a 29 course meal for $150 at Sushi Zo in LA. So, 29 pieces of sushi or hand rolls. I hear it puts almost all other sushi joints to shame and it's actually a really good value.

Something to look into, because I sure am :D

That fish does not look too attractive. I admit I have had a few dishes that were on the boring or out of balance side but I haven't yet run into a bad piece of fish. Although I don't go there too often. Too hard on my pocket book.

$30 at Oak Grill in Island Hotel, former restaurant named Pavilion. Irritated me so I didn't open the wine I brought and ordered tap water. Ordinary meal, too, though a good lobster Cobb. Won't return and plan on a Yelp complaint re corkage.

Zov's Anaheim - $15 (waived Sunday and Monday).

Good location for pre-concert (City National Grove of Anaheim) dinner. You can park in their lot (validated) and leave the car there as it is a short walk to the Grove.

King's Fish House at Stadium Promenade--free corkage. Don't know if it applies chain-wide but Muscadet and oysters were great tonight.

OC Mining Company. Started with a bottle in the bar and it was $15. Then moved to dining room with another bottle and it was $10. Not sure if that's the actual policy or just a server's mistake.

Rocco's in San Clemente is $15 - well worth it, as their wine list is pretty suspect, but Rocco's a good chef.
Apparently I'm lazy, have a narrow agenda, and offer little in the way of content and substance (RMP) (and have a "penchant for gossip" -KBI)
