This venue is probably the BEST & most AFFORDABLE in the O.C. area! I did a ton of research and Five Crowns was the best one we found.
Alison is extremely professional, gives great tips and responds very quickly. We booked our wedding date just 4 months before the wedding, and she did it on the fly over email! (We had already met with her a few weeks prior).
The venue is adorable and has AMAZING food. All of our guests LOVED the food and how efficient the wedding was =). I loved the part outdoor/indoor ceremony & reception. We spent a total of 11k on food & beverage (after tax & tip), which is extremely reasonable, considering that we had 130 guests. Each dish was ~$60 for lunch, and it was SO DELICIOUS. & the best part is, THERE IS NO VENUE FEE! That's UNHEARD of for wedding venues, but considering the fact that it was at a restaurant, it makes sense, and it's exactly the intimate wedding we wanted! The service was incredible! We were able to reserve a small room upstairs for our bridal party to freshen up before the ceremony and such - it was right next to a restroom and had a huge mirror, which was convenient as well.
Not to mention, you can apply for VIP Rewards with Lawry's, and for every $10 you spend, you get a $1 back on dining points. So we were able to treat out our dear friends who helped us at our wedding to an extremely nice meal back at Five Crowns!
This is probably the best bang for your buck for those of you who want a nice intimate wedding! The ceremony and reception were all at the same location, and we were out by 3:30PM to enjoy the rest of our day at Corona del Mar beach! My husband and I took photos at Little Corona in between our ceremony & reception, and we were able to do it super quickly (~30 min!) It was incredible. I absolutely loved our wedding day and I'm so thankful for Five Crowns & Alison for making all the magic happen!Sent on 07/30/2018

Perfect intimate venue!
We are so glad we chose the Five Crowns for our wedding ceremony and reception. It was the perfect venue for our intimate celebration of 40 guests. Alison was so helpful throughout the process and made planning from afar simple. The service of the staff the day of was amazing, and all our guests thought the food was incredible! Alison and her team take care of all the big items, which takes a lot of stress out of planning and coordinating, and the venue is already so beautiful! Thank you to the Five Crowns team for a wonderful day!Sent on 11/04/2019

One-stop shop for the Perfect Wedding Venue
We just had our wedding reception at Five Crowns the first weekend of September and couldn’t be happier with our decision! We booked the green house and patio for 80 people and it was just the right size. Not only is the venue STUNNING (which requires minimal decor), you don’t have to rent a single thing because they are a full service restaurant. That means tables, chairs, linens, silverware, etc is all taken care of. Basically, you just have to pick your menu items and you’re good to go! Bonus- the food is amazing! That’s really why my husband and I picked Five Crowns in the first place. We’ve always loved the food and we didn’t want people to have to suffer through horrible pre-plated hotel wedding food. They truly exceeded our expectations because our meal and the service was fantastic and so many guests kept raving about how good it was (and are still talking about it!). The servers were so attentive and everything came out right on time according to our timeline. Everyone always had a full drink in hand and I still can’t believe we came in under our open bar budget of $4000. Even so, everyone ate and drank to their hearts content. Another thing we loved was that Five Crowns doesn’t charge a venue fee, unlike almost every venue in Orange County. You just have to hit the food and beverage minimum and after all was said and done, we only went about $1500 over the minimum. We were OK with it because we signed up for their Lawry’s rewards program and they gave us $1000 credit to eat dinner there for almost a year! WIN WIN! Their event planner Alison was great to work with. She was super responsive the year before and was really flexible and accommodating to all our special requests. If you book Five Crowns, take Alison’s advice and hire Unoaked as your event coordinator. Adam from Unoaked used to have Alison’s job so having those two work together really was the dream team! In summary, if you are looking for a venue that doesn’t require a lot of work and offers great food, drinks, service, and atmosphere, Five Crowns in your one-stop shop for the perfect wedding!Sent on 10/17/2019
Five Crowns Restaurant Price Rates
Five Crowns & SideDoor is proud to offer no venue fee nor room rental fees to book your next private part!
One of the truly unique locations in Orange County for your ceremony & reception. The beautiful, intimate garden is the perfect setting for an outdoor ceremony year-round. The layout of the facility is that of an old English manor...very warm and inviting. Excellent menu options & great food. Very accommodating, friendly staff. Margo Brask coordinates everything for you & is one of the best in the business.
I have been working with Five Crowns now for 6 years and I am always pleased to see such happy brides!. Margo works with the bride and groom from day one to the final day. She gives them her all. The gardens are gorgeous. The Chef is gifted. The buffets are beautiful. I have also had the opportunity to provide flowers for many different parties there. It is a great local intimate hideaway. LOVELY!
We had the opportunity to perform for a wedding at this beautiful venue. It's a wonderful location and lovely venue that can accommodate small intimate weddings or moderate groups. I would have to say this has been one of our favorite venues to perform at thus far. We would be honored and delighted to return to this venue here in the near future.
