Capital Seafood - Irvine Spectrum
Great for Dim SumGood quality, good variety, good service. The staff that brings the dim sum in the carts seems a little more cheerful than many older dum sum restaurants. Staff is very attentive. And even though it's in Irvine Spectrum the prices are reasonable.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMawesome foodquantity and quality. took employee's family out. still affordable and we were only able to eat half the food. seven people and less than 200$. the food was great but i think i will order differently next time. the family next to us had it down. order one dish, if you finish it order another etc etc. the shrimp was like nothing i've seen before ... they were huge. highly recommend the honey walnut shrimp, the appetizer pork with pickled veggies.
the waiters were very friendly and when i wanted a noodle dish and fish, he said, order the special fish and i'll put it over noodles. It was awesome!!
great atmosphere, great service, great food.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experienceThank you for the great service and for the delicious dim sum! Your restaurant is one of the best! Would love to see more items on the dim sum carts, but overall, a very lovely experience. Will definitely return!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was outstanding.The service was outstanding. We enjoyed the soup dumplings and the house special shrimp. The beef with chinese broccoli was just okay. The beef did not have any flavor, but the broccoli was delicious. We will be back to try other items. We usually order to the lobster but 4lbs was too big for 2. Maybe management will consider 2 or 3 lb lobsters on the weekends.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMYum, dim sum! One of the bestYum, dim sum! One of the best Chinese restaurants in OC - prefer their menu items over dim sum, but always happy to go either way.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was very good. ThereThe food was very good. There was nothing fantastic about anything though. My impression may be slighted because we went in for Dim Sum and were told they only serve it until 3:00.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMalways have a great diningalways have a great dining experience.

Great they accept reservations too!3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, Capital SeafoodAs always, Capital Seafood at Irvine Spectrum has excellent authentic Chinese food - we tend to order their Cantonese style dishes. Their seafood is always fresh - we had sauteed scallops which were fresh,succulent and sweet - and not overcooked. When in season, the sauteed pea leaves with garlic is tender and full flavored without the aftertaste that you get from spinach (from the iron content). We always love the hot red bean/tapioca soup that is complimentary for dessert - deliciously sweet and satisfying at the end of the meal - don't forget to ask for it from the waiter in substitution for the cold almond jello (which is also very tasty).2/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
