Charlie Palmer at Bloomingdale's
My first "Dinning Experience"My first "Dinning Experience" there. . . Reminds me of the old days when the "Real Ritz with Hans P." was around.
It was an exceptional lunch for both food and Service. This would be a good place for other restaurants that would like
more business to come and see what makes perfection! ! !
Wow ! ! ! !
(I had the pulled pork sandwich)6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMTaking care of businessWe needed a quick bite before heading over to the Segerstrom for a concert and CP's did a great job of taking our order quickly, getting the food out quickly (but still well presented and spaced out appropriately). The food was above average, nice blends of multi-layered sauces to complement the main food groups. The drink menu has some delicious options and desert was tasty. So Cal folk generally like it safe and comfortable (that's why they live here) and the same is true of most restaurants including Cps. That being said, it was a great experience and I would do it again.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great experienceMy wife and I went for a date night away from the kids. Everything was fantastic, although one thing on the small plates menu, the octopus, just blew away everything else we ate the rest of the night. I have never had octopus to tender and flavorful in my life, and I am hoping the next time we go it is still on the menu so we can order it again. Highly recommend it!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMthe service was not exceptional,the service was not exceptional, we had to wait longer than we should have after we were seated for drink service, and the wait staff was inconsistent.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!Everything about our dinner was outstanding - food, service, atomosphere. Will definitely visit again.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMChose "Chef's Choice". ChefChose "Chef's Choice". Chef Nick's choices were outstanding. Look forward to visiting again.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMInterestingThe menu here is definitely creative and presentation as important as taste. I particularly liked the "Small Plate" options which allowed me to select small portions of a variety of things. I ordered Escargot Dumplings, Lamb Meatballs and Pork Belly. All were beautifully presented although disappointingly unremarkable. The Chinese dumpling with a snail inside was interesting but I guess I prefer the French style where the wonderful garlic butter sauce is left for mopping up with bread after the snail is gone. The lamb meatballs were in a spaghetti sauce and tasted very much like the meatballs I make at home - good but not special. The pork belly definitely required the heavy duty knife provided. Will I return - Yes - won't order same.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMi enjoyed dining there. Thei enjoyed dining there. The food, service, table setting were good.
The only thing I didn't like was the amount of pasta. My friend I thought it was too small.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMCRISPED SKIN MARY'S FARM CHICKENCRISPED SKIN MARY'S FARM CHICKEN and CHESTNUT HONEY-GLAZED LIBERTY FARM DUCK BREAST was perfect!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMService is always superb!Service is always superb! The small plates are a nice way to taste several dishes. We always enjoy every meal whether it is brunch, lunch or dinner.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen we enter thru the enterance,When we enter thru the enterance, it was a little noisy. But when we arrived at our seats, we could understand that it was no problem in dinning area. We really enjoyed so delicious food.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways enjoy going with myAlways enjoy going with my wife to share small plates, a bottle of wine and dessert with coffee. Once we had entrees and salad, but since then only sharing plates in order to get more tastes and really spend a relaxing evening. This is one of few restaurants that still offer such choices. Most have abandoned the concept and are going back to overly large entrees that we do not enjoy as much. The service is excellent and understand that we are not in a hurry.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOur "Go-To" for a great meal.Never had the same thing twice

The manager's reccommended wine pairings were perfect for the mussels, Caeser salad, scallops with pink lentils and citrus, and duck breast.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMenu is a bit pricey, butMenu is a bit pricey, but worth the money! We went here for a friend's 38th birthday and it was the perfect classy venue for the occasion.2/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFine Dining in Orange CountyCharlie Palmers is a true dining experience. The menu is extensive as is the wine list. The ambience is open and airy, however the noise level increases as the bar area becomes more crowded. Although our server was professioanl and very attentive, the hostess staff seemed preoccupied and failed to offer a choice of a dark napkin to match our clothing as is normal practice in a fine dining restaurant.1/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best!Awesome in every way...Food, wine and service all perfect! Great location.12/21/2012 12:00:00 AM
