The Cat & the Custard Cup is my favorite restaurant in Orange County. If you go at Happy Hour they have great appetizers and drink specials (4:30 – 6:30 pm). The bartenders and very experienced and knowledgeable and the ambiance is cozy old school but not in a dark and dreary way. The service is always excellent, whether in the... More

We went to this restaurant for a friend's birthday. I had never heard of this place before, but I sure am glad my friend picked it! I'd never been so thoroughly surprised. Pleasantly so! From my first Moscow Mule in the cutest copper cup to the various appetizers to my scallop entree and southwestern corn side and the various desserts.... More

I had high expectations about this restaurant, thought it was a fancy restaurant with great food but it was just ok. Food wasn't great but wasn't bad either and decor seemed very outdated.

We went here because both Yelp and Zagat had good ratings on it. The posted reviews were just fantastic. WRONG. For the price the food was OK but by no means great. We were 4 foodies and each had a different entree. The lamb was tender but not flavorful, The pork was juicy but again no flavor, The fish was... More

From the minute you walk in all the stress melts away. We start about a half hour before our reservation time and sit and soak in the quaintness of the... More

Though small this place has a lot to offer. Food is excellent. We have been here 3 times and each time the service was great and we enjoyed what we ordered.

This is officially our newest favorite date place in the OC! All the reviews (and zagat rating) are right on the money! Romantic ambience, fast and friendly service by our server Jennifer, competitive pricing and most importantly, quality of food is fantastic! Bf & I each ordered French onion soup, shared an appetizer: shrimp wrapped in pancetta (love!); my main... More

Based on the prices, this is a special occasion type of place. For the most part, the food and service is well worth the occasional splurge. Four of us had the French onion soup as an appetizer while one had the hearts of romaine salad. My husband and myself gave the soup a thumbs down. It tasted overdone, like the... More

Enjoyed the atmosphere, the service and the three course meal on Valentine's Day was so succulent especially the filet mignon and the sea bass. I AM returning soon and not waiting for a special occasion.
