The food here is AMAZING! I had a steak and shrimp fajita that came to my table sizzling with peppers, onions, Guacamole, sour cream, salsa, beans, and rice. It was HUGE!. The steak was tender, and everything tasted above average. The servers were all very nice, helpful, and efficient. First time here. I just wandered in, and was I glad... More

Food was okay, but not healthy. I had a colleague that had his order come out wrong TWICE!! My food came out with lots of cheese (1/2 salad). My sandwich was good, fresh bread, meat and cheese.

The food was good, but the waitress wasn't quite as attentive as she should have been. We had to go to the register to get our bill so we could leave. Would eat there again!

This establishment is on the same block as a multitude of hotels. I did check out reviews prior to walking over for happy hour. I was staying at a hotel next door on business travel and not wanting to pay hotel prices for a drink and appetizer. And not wanting to go far I ventured over at the start of... More

I was in the area for a family reunion. Spoons was a block from my hotel, so I thought i'd try it. When I walked up, there were only a few cars in the parking lot and I thought, is the place even open. Usually not a good sign when there is a huge lot with only a few cars... More

Typical sports bar that apparently, but maybe no longer, would convert to a night club late week and late evenings. I had to spend a business night at a hotel just down the street. Not wanting to drive there was not much else close. Staff was friendly, but team service was slow and I had to wait a long time... More

Was staying in the rather large hotel complex near John Wayne Airport and was looking for a place for dinner within walking distance. Saw the previous reviews on Trip Advisor and though I would give it a try. I was very pleased with the location, atmosphere and food. I had the steak, chicken and shrimp fajita dinner.

I have been at Spoons restaurant many times. They have a very good selection of beer and alcohol..... thank you for that! They have everything from Mexican dishes to burgers, and even pasta. The prices are decent. The restaurant is newly remodeled. The CHOCONANA desert is absolutely sinful......get it. Trust me, you'll like it!!!
