In an non-descript shopping center in the North part of Irvine. Sister restaurant with Zov's in Tustin but without the full bakery. Nice variety of brunch items including gravalax, corn beef hash and eggs, and pancakes. All very good. Nice patio as well with heaters...More

I have always enjoyed Zov's. For whatever reason I didn't like traveling to Tustin. I finally discovered Zov's in North Irvine. It has the same good food and service, but for us a nicer location. Eating outside was great because even though the parking lot...More

Used to be great breakfasts, and service. A couple of recent visits for dinner and breakfast were disappointing. Awful service, and the cook, if there was one, couldn't do the job. Staff seemed to be mixing drinks, serving and working in the kitchen at the...More
