The Spectrum has it all! Dinner out with your significant other or family. Movies, dessert places. And plenty of parking on non holiday days.

We enjoyed a great lunch here; seriously good Mexican food, fun and friendly staff and left enough behind for another person (you could have taken the left-overs home for lunch the next day!) Seafood enchiladas were a particular standout, and the house Margherita was fantastic.

I went to the Irvine Spectrum and was amazed at the number of shops and restaurants. The facility is spotless and they are just completing a major renovation which should make the Spectrum even more appealing.

Probably the nicest mall you’ll ever see or experience. Irvine Improv comedy club is top notch. Restaurants are diverse and amazing. VIP movie options and lots of palm trees. Clean and super nice outdoor mall.
