“AMAZING View...GREAT for family or a date”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

Coliseum is the rare choice that is perfect for a date or the family. Amazing views....professional staff and excellent food. The menu options could be better so it is advised to review the menu online prior to dining. Prices were reasonable. I agree that this is a top choice in OC...

“Great views!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

We had lunch with friends by the pool. Very casual and relaxed, with the usual light lunch options. Setting and views were lovely, it is a great place for breakfast and brunch!

“Fine Food - Large Portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

Their food is well above average in preparation and presentation, even if the portions are generally too large. So, order appropriately.

“What a place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

Beauty unparalleled. Great service. Excellent food. If you are a French fries fan...cannot find better than these! Water was heaven and the beer was cold. What more could one ask for?
