After a very disappointing lunch at Montage we were ready for something good and this cozy restaurant delivered. Whenever you're in Orange County you have to be prepared for waits and a busy atmosphere. Cedar Creek is busy on a Friday nite but they are attentive and the food comes quickly. We enjoyed this place for the warmth and casual dining experience. We will come again!

I remember when this used to be a Nursery with Mexican art work. Now its a charming, sightly elegant restaurant. Went with the girls today. We love the crab cake, Caesar salad! The dressing is just salty enough. The, not too over the top, Christmas decorations are very festive. They have a large roaring fireplace. If you are going on a drizzly day, call and ask for a table near it. The house chardonnay is nice, with a mild oak flavor. If its a warm day they offer patio dining under old beautiful trees. Check out the happy hour specials. This is a great celebration restaurant.

My wife and I go here frequently in the evening for a Romantic but laid back glass of Wine, Calamari and Crab Cakes under the trees. There is even an outdoor fire place in the corner.

The staff is always great, even when they occasionally get a bit busy.

The food is always fantastic!

We ate here after visiting the Mission which is located across the street. They have a very nice lunch menu, appetizers, salads, and sandwiches. There is also a kid's menu. The food was well prepared and the service was very good. There is a very nice outdoor seating area, as well as seating indoors. The chopped salads were very good. Fish and chips and burgers were also well prepared. And the desserts were yummy. This is a nice place for adults and kids alike.

Across from the Mission, this is a great place that has excellent food and an equally wonderful staff. Sitting outside on their patio is a treat...and if the weather is bad, I recommend sitting in the bar area by their fireplace. Not an extensive menu, but everything on it is wonderfully prepared. Location is great as you can walk around the small shops and visit the mission. A great place for bringing out of towners (friends or business).
