This outdoor shopping mall has grown a lot ever since it opened in the 1990's and has added a lot of great things to see and do other than just shop. It's always felt safe, unlike the Block, and the public areas are clean. There's a good range of restaurants, from cheap, quick eats to sit down restaurants where you... More

Typical for southern CA weather, they built this mall outdoors. Very nice, upscale. many restaurants and shops. Even has a comedy club and a mega screen movie theater. Recently upgraded the lighting on the giant ferris wheel, LED lights really changed it up. Worth the stop for sure

Everything you need at the Spectrum. Be it good food, great clothing stores or Blockbuster movies. Kid-friendly and clean. Irvine' s own 'pièce de resistance'

This outdoor mall has a wide range of stores. Variety of food places. Only problem is parking can be hard when it is crowded.

The Irvine Spectrum is an easy place to find and is almost central Orange County. Great restaurants, shops and one of the largest movie theaters in Orange County. Has a gigantic ferris wheel that lights up at night. Plenty of inside parking.

Great place to visit if you like shopping and eating! A good movie theater is there but what I liked about it is the restaurants, the shopping and the all around "downtown" feeling of the place. You don't get that feeling in southern Orange County.

As the subject says. Nice place to visit if you are in Irvine since the county is small and not many things to do. The Spectrum is a nice place to chill and has some nice restaurants in an open space. Nice place for couples or family to enjoy there time.

I went there for the first time. It's like the Disneyland of shopping centers. Lots of shops, restaurants an a gym. I'm looking forward to going back. Oh and there is a Ferris Wheel and Merry Go Round in the middle of the complex.

I have been to this "Mall" or Center 5 times. We have had good food and I wish I could remember the last 2 restaurants we ate at. The 24 Hour Fitness is clean and for me a great place to workout. It is clean. Parking is free. :-). I would recommend you go here if you want to shop,... More
