This place has it all...good parking, plenty of choices for food/shopping, and entertainment for all ages. Beautiful Morrocan decor, fun fountains, and rides/skating for the kids. I brought my sister and nephew all over Orange County when they visited, but they loved this outdoor shopping mall the best.

Most shopping malls are just that. The Irvine Spectrum is number one an "Outdoor Mall". With the great So. Cal weather there are few days you can't be outside. Most malls to me are too noisy and too busy. This place is wide open and has a great selection of anchor stores and smaller shops. We often come more for... More

Need more stores and better way if getting the place tolerable in summer. More shades in the alleys. There was live music which was nice and Chipotle food was good. Panda express wasn't as good though and made us feel sick. Ice Creams and cool drinks helped with the heat but we found ourselves in more stores than we needed... More

was stopping by Spectrum to pick up a toner refill from Skinfood, and my boyfriend remembered seeing a "Coming Soon" sign for Urban Seoul the last time we were here, so we decided to swing by Pieology to see if if Urban Seoul is now open...and it is (but just not officially)! AMBIANCE As previously mentioned, Urban Seoul 2.0 is... More

If there is one thing to solve, it's the parking. I see so much construction what I think is meant to ease the parking situation. Hope it happens sooner than later. It's becoming a frustration going to the Spectrum and slowly becoming a bottom priority to visit versus some other shopping options around Orange County.

This was the second time we've been here at this location and the service, once again was just okay. We visit our home Chang's often, so we know, or possibly expect the same kind of service. Today we ate ate the bar and the bartender was busy, so I completely understand this. BUT, please don't take my dish away with... More

This outdoor mall has plenty of restaurants to choose from and some decent shopping, however, it is so crowded, I live and work close but avoid it because parking is atrocious.

There are a multitude of stores and restaurants. A neat place to walk around. There is something for everyone. Tere is also a movie theater and a comedy club. All around fun. We love shopping and eating here.
