Saturday night dinner

Great service. We were seated right away, but in a very small booth. I asked our hostess, Noemi, for a bigger booth. She came back 5 minutes later, and rambled, her sentences did not make sense, she was very nervous, and just rambled incoherent words and I was too embarrassed to ask her to repeat... read more

My dad is a super picky eater, so sometimes I dread going out to eat with him. He can be pretty hard (demanding) with wait staff. But he loves King's! Great service, good food. They keep his coffee hot and his cup filled. The food is fresh and well prepared, and the bread is to die for. This is a... More

I had high expectations for great fish because my husband and I had just eaten at the Carlsbad kings fish house last weekend and the food was so delicious we thought a 20 mile drive to kings in Orange would be worth it. We got a seat on the patio right away and our server was very attentive.....didn't bring the... More

We went there with a convention group and was really looking forward to it cause it was a seafood specialty restaurant. Boy was I wrong. The mixed assortment of fried calamari, shrimp, was right out of the fryer without being drained, all I could taste was the grease, my taste buds went AWOL. The Pacific Swordfish was a bit better,...

To be honest, I can't even remember the food I ate. It was very average. I do remember the Sourdough bread, and that was delicious! The service was fine, the wait was fine. But for the price we paid, I'm sure there is better seafood elsewhere.

I have not had bad food here, but I haven't had great food either. I like the restaurant and will continue to go because I like fish. Great service!

The last time we graced King's with our presence, I got a steak that was HALF the size of any steak previously ordered there, and it was tough, chewy as a Kevlar-reinforced bicycle tire. Add to that the cost of two drinks, and you could visit GEM meats, pick up a superb 16 oz. slab o' cow, visit The Wine... More

Liked ease of getting reservation; fairy fast service; macademia nut crusted halibut was excellent. Would definitely dine here again. The only downside was finding a parking place. There are several eateries here and on the weekend parking is not easy.

The hotel front desk clerk told me this was an upscale great seafood place. Well, I have eaten seafood all over the world and this was not great. It was really just ok. I realize everyone has different taste, but I ordered the charbroiled trout and it was very dry and overcooked. My husband ordered the shrimp and scallops and... More

Been here for business lunches with larger groups and always impressed by their service. Love their Seafood Chowder. Lots of other great app choices (fresh oysters, sushi, etc.). Desserts are primo also. Their grilled fish dishes are always great too - just seems portions are smaller than expected. But never a bad meal here and servers look after you -... More
