I love this mall. A lot of cool stores. Restaurants are spread out and the comedy club is great. Plus the movie theater has all of the options you would want (IMAX, 3D, etc.). The only problem is parking can be a bit of a problem. But they offer valet so if you are willing to pay then it is... More

If you want to shop or dine in relative ease, try the Irvine Spectrum on a week night. There are so many places to eat and shop or just sit and people watch. In the winter you can ice skate. In the summer there is a fountain to play in. At night the Spectrum is magical...the lights, the businesses, the... More

The Irvine Spectrum has everything for entertainment, theaters, restaurants, shops, etc. The only concern is that during the weekends is very crowded and the parking lot is a problem. If you really want to enjoy the place visit during the weekdays or Saturday morning. After 1:00 PM on Saturdays and Sundays is very crowded

This is a great outdoor mall with all type of stores, including Target and Macy's. They meet all different types of shoppers. Also they have many dining places, including low cost fast food and many nice sit down locations. Also there are plenty of places to just sit and watch people. It is a fun place to hang out.

This was the largest outdoor mall I think I've ever seen. It was huge - almost like Mall of America, but outdoors. Great major retailers as well as smaller boutiques. And dining options were fantastic.

This is my first time visiting the Spectrum Center and my first impression is liveliness. The mall is huge and the halls are outdoor. Very crowded on a Friday night. We didn't go through the entire mall as we don't have that much time. We just went there for dinner and stroll around for short time. I would love to... More
