The Irvine Spectrum Center is located in the southern part of Orange County, not far from the El Toro Marine Corps Air Station. It's where I-405, the San Diego Freeway, splits off from I-5, the Santa Ana Freeway. As you approach the Spectrum, the office buildings that surround it form a skyline. I took the Alton Parkway exit off of... More

Good location for shopping with variaity of brands. Alot of choices for food and drinks. It is not different from other malls in the US. I will definitely visit again if I am in the area.

It has just about every type of shop and restaurant one could imagine. There seems to be enough parking space especially with the parking garage, and one can spend hours walking, looking and shopping or eating

We stopped for afternoon late lunch on Sunday at Enoteca outdoor table. What would have been a nice afternoon was interrupted by a person playing loud, badly, really badly Beatles songs for what seemed like an eternity. Would not do that on a Sunday again. Enoteca yes, spectrum no

When they moved the valet parked across the street they seemed to have complete disregard to handicapped people. One parks for the attendant about 1 block into the facility and then you have to walk out and across the street. Not good.

I'm not a big fan of malls, so this eclectic assortment of major & local retailers was excellent- great food, stores & fabulous seating areas to just relax & people watch- so enjoyed the numerous fountains & flora. Views from the Ferris wheel was great also - a wonderful variety of food & fun & fare for all!!
