This was our first trip to this great little fish grill restaurant, we were hungry for lunch and stopped by on a Saturday. The line moves super fast and before we knew it we were ordering. We got our drinks from the beverage bar and got a table inside as it was a bit windy outside. Our food came out... More

Great food and reasonable prices. We are clients for life now. Try white fish Cajun style it is delicious and spicy. If you have not been there try it you will not be sorry.

If your in the mood for fish, this is your place. There is a huge selection of menu items ranging from tacos, salads, grilled fish platters and some fried fish options as well. The portions are huge and there are a lot of healthy choices. The reasonably priced food make it an even better restaurant to visit.

I went twice during my week vacation in the area and I tried both the cajun style and garlic sauce swai (or white fish). I thought both were very good but I preferred the cajun style for more flavor. You order the food at the register and then the food is served to your table within minutes. Although the place... More

My son and I came here having read many good reviews. We wanted to eat light and reasonably healthy. I am glad we did. We started with the shrimp taco appetizer right in to the main course of fish and chips. Both were very good. The home made tarter and tomato sauces were fresh and tasty. This restaurant is very...

Not bad for what you pay, slather your fresh fish in garlic sauce or cajun style, the salmon salad is YUMMY!!! You can substitute your side for grilled zucchini

Since I live and work nearby, I have had lunches and dinners here dozens of times over the past several years. It's a favorite among my co-workers. In the realm of casual/quick dining, California Fish Grill tops my list in terms of good food and good value. For 10-12 bucks, the typical portion of fish that is served is worth... More

I was pleasantly surprised that a fast, not too expensive, place existed in Irvine that also had excellent food. I had the white fish served cajun style with cole slaw. I enjoyed it very musc so ordered the same dish the next time I was there. The food was consistently good.

Really enjoy this place, they have a lot to chose from and everything I have tried in the past has been good. Most seafood places are always overpriced or their food isn't the freshest, can't say I've experienced any of that with California Fish Grill. I prefer the salmon but the shrimp tacos are also hard to pass up. Would... More
