A simple menu and great service within a relaxed setting of the extended lobby. There is also a bar and you can mingle with other patrons.

Located beside the lobby, there is a long bar with ample seating and extra tables surrounding the bar. The hamburgers, salads and sandwiches are fresh and tasty. Nothing fancy, but just fine for an airport hotel/restaurant.

Best hotel restaurant food we've had and the service was outstanding. We ate three meals here in the three days we were there.

It's not cozy. It's so public you get the feeling you are the entertainment in the lobby. People checking in can stare at you eat and drink. It's freezing. The air conditioning is going wild to make you feel you're anywhere but Southern California. The food. Ugh. The flatbread pizza I ordered was just not good. It was like eating... More

I ate here twice (dinner and breakfast) while I was staying at the Hilton Irvine/Orange County Airport. For dinner, I had the fish tacos and ruscan tomato soup...which were both pleasant. For breakfast, I ordered the veggie omelet with potatoes and toast....which was pretty good. Service was great. No complaints. Since there's not much by way of walking distance in... More

I had food and drink at the bistro, checked my bank account and found out that they had double dipped for the tip, as the tip that was included was charged and then the tip amount was charged AGAIN separately! Of course, had to call a couple of times just to find out that anyone that could help was not... More
