We had opentable reservation for Tuesday night, front desk person Joe Luby refused to honor reservation, told he has no table for us, never even apologized for the mixup, told mixup is not his problem and send is away. I never met such rude treatment at front desk. Lousy

I hate to say it, but this is one of my less memorable visits to this national chain, it was either them or me but it was simply not a very good experience and quite expensive. First, I had a glass of Chardonnay that was, at best, average based on the waiter's recommendation. Then, my scallops and beef dinner arrived... More

We visited this place because it is conveniently located 5 minutes walk from Wyndham Irvine hotel. Very big restaurant, they have their own brewery in the back with a special menu, but we ate in the main restaurant. Very good service, food was OK but not spectacular, nice bottle of red wine, quite pricey in general.

The restaurant has a nice warm but rather dark atmosphere. Service was very attentive and pleasant. The menu is alomost all seafood as advertised, with a wide selection. We had almond encrusted Trout, which was very tasty and enjoyable, and a bit off the beaten path. The wine list by glass included a great Mondavi Sauvignon Blanc which I highly... More

Six of us had a wonderful dinner last night. All the dishes were excellent. My Black Cod was perfectly cooked, just translucent. Service was good, attentive and prompt. A good choice for business meals.

The food and service was outstanding. I had flat bread pizza and my friend had a seafood salad. The dishes were prepared well and tasted very good. The waiter was very good also.

Celebrated Thanksgiving dinner here. Service excellent. Crab stuffed mushrooms were excellent. Lobster bisque was delicious and excellent as always. Love the fresh sour dough bread. Filet and lobster was excellent for dinner. Dessert we had the crème brulee and pumpkin pie.

Celebrated Christmas with some of the family and had an excellent Holiday Menu. Had the Mahi Mahi, Stuffed Salmon, Miso Sea Bass, and Filet Mignon. All the fish meals were excellent and cooked to perfection; the Filet was a tad tough, so it may be good to have it cooked on the medium rare side. The other plates were chopped... More

Two friends and I decided to have Christmas Dinner here, this year, and we are glad that we did. The food was excellent and the service superb - thank you Juan Carlos! We each choose different food items - beef - ribs - steak - scallops - and so on - with Walnut salads to begin with. We thoroughly enjoyed... More
