We were in Irvine for a short vacation and were craving some Asian Cuisine. Someone mentioned the Irvine Spectrum Center and that it had a few good Asian places to eat at. Let me tell you Capital Seafood and Dim Sum will NOT disappoint.
Our waiter was Ben; simply a fantastic man who has mastered the craft of service. Friendly, professional, attentive and extremely patient. We had our 2 year old daughter with us and he has probably been the best waiter we've had since having our daughter and going to eat out.
We ordered the crab wontons and butterflied shimp as starters; simply amazing! At that time we ordered our daughter the kids beef and brocolli and asked to just have it come out whenever ready because our daughter was getting to be a little crazy as she was very hungry. 6 minutes later a piping hot dish of delicious looking beef and brocolli comes out with a huge helping of steamed rice and a spring roll. That quick, before the appetizers! Ben made sure it was the first thing they cooked when he went back there! And it tastes AMAZING!!!
We ordered the spicy beef fried rice, sizzling seafood platter, and the sea bass. I cannot begin to describe how amazing all the food tastes, it was fresh, and the flavors were to die for.
Ben then brought out complementary bowls of their red bean tapioca, and it was just the cherry on top of a phenomenal meal. We asked to speak to the manager about the superb service we received from Ben. Allen came by our table 30 seconds later, introduced himself and thanked us over and over for how we raved about the food and service. He shook all of our hands and thanked us for visiting while on vacation. He told us to come back in soon as ask for him by name, and would ensure we were well taken care of.
This place did not disappoint, and we will certainly visit everytime we're visiting Irvine!!
