“Great for shopping or people watching!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

Variety of shops and restaurants! They even have a kids playground that is under a canopy and a water/splash zone where kids can take off their shoes and have a ball!

“Easy to spend an entire day here - And I don't even like to shop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

This is an amazing place to see. I love walking outside while being "inside" - something that we don't usually get to see here in Illinois. There are always entertainers to watch, windows to shop, and lots of good food. I have eaten at the Cheesecake Factory twice and would definately go back any chance I get. Super service and great food!!

“Fun shopping experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

Great variety of stores, restaurants and entertainment. It is also a fun area to walk around and browse. In the winter season there is an ice skating arena. Frequent entertainment by various musicians can be found around the shopping area which makes it a very pleasant atmosphere. There is something for everyone at the Spectrum. Great place for families as well.

“The Place for Dining and Shopping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

My home is 3 miles from Irvine spectrum and I live in Irvine for 20 years and I go to Irvine spectrum everyday because there is a 24 fitness center. There are 21 Movie theaters and there are fine Dining places! Coffee shops-- live out Door music-- shopping -- Indoor game places live Dave & Busters. Irvine Spectrum is the place to be for the Weekend. Only catch is parking, sometime it gets difficult to find parking-- In that situation use Vale parking it is much easier

“What's all this excitement about malls?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

This is just an outdoor mall. I'm not very sure what the fuss is about. There is an overpriced ferris wheel and carousel... Almost always busy. No special or unique stores. Just the same stores you find at any other mall....
