went to Pieology for dinner and then on to Creme for desert

Both were excellent and worth a repeat at a later date. The pizza I had I chose the ingredients myself and it turned out perfectly. The sausage was great.

Why would anyone want to go here? Crowded grounds? Crowded, loud restaurants? Kids running wild. It's a zoo with only two-footed animals.

It amazes me that parking never gets any easier here. I only go if I know I'll be hitting a store or restaurant near a valet stand. If you do manage to park in a lot or the structure, you've got quite a hike to wherever you're headed. It's a beautiful outdoor mall with a variety of shops, restaurants, and... More

I visited from Australia & managed to avoid jet lag by staying awake all day browsing & buying great things here. It was sale time & although the AUD was poor it was still affordable shopping & I found gifts for everyone back home. Great good choices & a variety of places to sit & relax with a juice coffee...

Irvine Spectrum is a great place for families and if you're a multi-tasker like me you can accomplish so much in one day! You can have your car washed while you shop with the family, entertain the kids with a movie at Edwards Theatre, and grab some lunch or dinner at Javier's or Cheesecake Factory to reward yourself for your...

Poor mapping. What's wrong with some yellow brick road mapping for the major tenants so one can walk in the right direction without having to stop and ask or unfold a tiny print map (since the board maps are now advertisements) How about more "free" places to rest your weary feet? Commercial is fine, but let's give people a more... More

First and foremost tons and tons of POKEMON stops, but I digress 😅 Tons of great food, movies with an IMAX option, bars, comedy club, great candy stores, and a Bookstore with real books, Ferris wheel, etc.... I bring out of town guests here all of the time for something Californian and lots to see and do. This is a... More
