We have come here many times and have always had dishes that we're tasty and healthy. Then we came on a Friday last winter and my wife both love claim chowder so were ordered same. It was so tasteless that I had to check to see if in fact we did have claim chowder. We just were speechless and left... More

Located right in the middle of "old town" Tustin, Rutabegorz is a unique of blending old and new. Though it has a bit of Italian in it, it certainly will provide a taste of enough variety to interest any palate. It is always busy and a little on the noisy side (especially if you choose to eat on the patio).... More

I'm a huge fan of the laid back atmosphere, full of locals (you're bound to see someone you know), and the great food. The building is "old local market" shop and the booths and tables are right out of a 1920 soda fountain scene. Servers are about as friendly as they can be and still manage to be really efficient....

We were in the mood for a nice salad and some healthy fare and this trip did not disappoint. I had the chicken walnut salad - with extra nuts of course - and it was excellent! I always forget how happy i am after eating here. The atmosphere is local and the food is consistent. Service can be spotty since... More

I love this restaurant and go here regularly. Have a couple of staples that I always order like the 1/2 sandwich and soup, or one of the fantastic salads. I can't resist their specials. The last time I was there I had the butternut squash ravioli, it was fantastic! Their baked goods are a great way to end your meal... More

Wonderful restaurant in charming, downtown Tustin. Huge list of items on the menu, all of which are healthy and tasty. Sandwiches, salads, hot entrees are well prepared. This has become one of my favorite places to dine.

Rutabegorz is one of our favorite places for lunch in Tustin. We have been here numerous times and the customer service and delicious food just keeps getting better! Andra was our server and she was friendly and the best. I had the butternut lasagne and it was delicious as usual. This is a seasonal special and I wish it was... More

I live in Tustin, and while I don't come here often, when I do I like it. I'm not sure that all of it is super healthy though-there are some pretty high calorie options!
