Were were able to cozy up to the bar and grab a nice glass of wine and a beer prior to our concert starting at Segerstrom Hall- even though I thought we were cutting it too close! Service was great and venue is nice, relaxing and easy for a quick pre-concert drink. We did not eat but those around us were enjoying some tasty options that seemed to be well reviewed.

Located next to the Orange County Performing Arts Center and the Renee and Henry Segerstom Concert Hall it is the perfect location for a pre-theatre meal. Excellent decor, outstanding service and menu selections that are updated to coincide with each theatre performance. I selected the Steelhead Salmon and my wife selected the Lamb, both were prepared well and were delicious A full bar on site with an extensive wine list. Unfortunately the restaurant is only open when there are performances scheduled in the theatre and concert hall.

After a string of disappointing meals we had low expectations when we booked Cafe Rouge for a pre-theatre dinner. It was full, the staff were professional and the food was excellent. There was a bit of a delay in bringing our entree's but both the manager and our server kept us informed, and they even threw in a free dessert to make up for our wait. Altogether a pleasant experience and we will definitely go again

The service was impeccable. We sat by the window and looked out on the theatre lights.The dinner was beautifully served and presented. Creative menu. Perfect for a birthday celebration. Each menu item we had was delicious. Chocolate dessert rocked!

Had great Thanksgiving dinner here with super delicious and moist turkey that withstood reheating the next day. Three-course dinner with great selections to choose from. We started with the diver scallop, ordered additional parsnip soup, and had one turkey and one fish. The portions were more than generous, we were so full we had to pack half the entree and both desserts.

Service was good, attentive, and friendly. Will definitely be back for dinner and show package.
