This is very good restaurant at Irvine Spectrum. We visited two days ago for dinner. The food , ambience was very good. Cocktails were refreshing.We had great time, However service was slow as the waiters were busy attending someone's birthday on another table.

Probably a great choice off hours, but during busy times you probably want to choose another option. Even with reservations, we had a 20-30 minute wait for a table. The night we went it was really hot inside the restaurant and waiting area. They don't...More
