Service is often slow and hit and miss. Food is so-so. But I will come back forever due to the ambiance. Restaurants like this are becoming harder and harder to find in Orange County. Its just plain cozy here. Come at Christmas time when they hang the Christmas Tree upside down from the ceiling!

We have been going to Rutabegorz for lunch for years. It is a great meeting place for friends or family, with plenty of dining space and a nice outdoor patio. Favorite salads...Garlic Chicken, Apple Spinach and the seasonal Strawberry Salad. The vegetarian choices are extensive and there are plenty of gluten-free options. The staff is wonderful, and if you feel... More
