The food was slightly above average but the servers were fantastic and personable! If you are hungry it will be better than fast food.

I do not recommend. I went there only once last year bc I was starving after working over 16 hrs and too tired to go further. Waiter was helpful and nice, but I only ordered tacos which took about an hour. greasy, soft, flavorless, stringy meat. I threw them in the trash when i returned to the hotel

We have been going to this place for awhile..it has delicious food. It's a bar/restaurant BUT has great seating for casual dining. The salmon is so wonderful..the ribs are wonderful..the ribeye steak is wonderful..AND they have a TexMex spaghetti that taste just like Steak and Shake(which are not in California) and it is WONDERFUL-MMMMMM...great service ALWAYS.

The service was the friendliest we have ever seen and the food is excellent. Be sure to try the Margritas; best we've had . Inside needs a little work but what a great little find.

I had been here once before-food was fine but decor was dark and worn out. Tonight was a pleasant surprise. They put new lighting in and appeared to make an effort to brighten the dining area. Help staff attentive. I considered the special and also was considering the salmon. Server steered me to salmon-incredible. Veggies, rice and sauce all great.... More

Spoons is a Mexican style restuarant offering reasonable value for money. A useful place to go when staying in one of the local hotels. Usedit several times during a recent trip to Santa Ana and I will certainly use it again.

We were here for late dinner and even it was not outstanding food, it was good and the service was always very attentive. We had the wings and a couple of burgers and they came out very nice. There were severa games on TV, so everybody was cheering for a different team. Nice game atmosphere.

Good little bar and grill on Hotel Terrace, so close to all the airport hotels. Decent beer selection and good food.
