My colleague and I were in Irvine for a business trip and decided to skip the chain restaurants for a local place. The reviews on line were good and they had won several accolades so we decided to give it a try. We ordered a few appetizers and were disappointed - The short rib ravioli were chewy and bland and the artichokes were also tasteless. The seafood entrees were much better and we should have just stuck with those and maybe a dessert.
The waitstaff were friendly and helpful but the service was slow. They asked if we were attending a show that evening and since we said that we weren't, it seemed at though everyone else received expedited service and our food took quite awhile between courses.
The restaurant itself was very nice on the inside and well maintained. However, I would not return.
