Went for our anniversary dinner while staying in Southern California. We had a ocean view table which allowed us to enjoy the ocean and a wonderful sunset. The food was delicious and our service very good!

One of our Favorite Restaurants!!
A great venue for inviting friends from out of town to enjoy the beautiful view and have a wonderful meal. The service is stellar and the food is always worth the wait. Sparks is one of our favorite restaurants downtown Huntington Beach.

Great selection for buffet
Great selection for buffet style brunch. Some of the food was cold, but everything was very tasty and our server kept the champagne glasses full. I was impressed with the selection of seafood: from ceviche, poke, cajun shrimp & oyster shooters! The crepe station and eggs benedict were favorites among our group. With all that and a beautiful beach backdrop, we will definitely be back!

I'm so glad I ate here. The food was outstanding. If you want to sit outside on the patio you can have a great view of the ocean. I would recommend the filet mignon. The service was fantastic. The location is great.

Best View/Buy Brunch in HB
Spark has a great brunch every Sunday, food is good and very similar to the many brunch spots I have experienced, omelette bar, carving station, bottomless champaign et al., but for a very reasonable $25 per person! Further, they have an great whitewater view of the Pacific and the Landmark Huntington Beach Pier. Oh and their live entertainment is excellent, not too loud, Mike sings and plays guitar covering many hits classics and modern day.

Our server Gina took extra special care of us, food was great. Only problem we had was being stuck in the parking garage for 10 minutes while the attendant went to subway and left the gate closed!

Great view of the beach at
Great view of the beach at sunset from the patio. Steaks never disappoint. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

We sat outside where you have the best view in Southern California, of the HB pier and all the beach activity. My husband ordered the prime rib and said it was possibly the best he ever had. Some kind of smoking technique made it wonderfully flavored. My salmon was perfect. We love to come here after a hard day's work and de-stress.

We have returned to this restaurant for our wedding anniversary. We had our wedding dinner at Sparks on the day we got married.
We chose the restaurant for the view, however the food has not disappointed us either.
Everything you order off the menu will most likely not disappoint you. Wait staff could use some training on the menu items as
well as attentive service. Over all a great place to dine and look at the ocean view in Huntington Beach.

Spark has a great location for sunsets. Food is usually very good (and it was on this night) - service is usually better (a little uneven on this night). Good options on kids menu and adding dessert is a plus.

We have been coming here for years. One of our favorite restaurants.

Menue changes were disappointing...
In the past 7 years, we have loved Sparks. We went this week for my birthday. The menu changes were disappointing to us. They took off the lamb dishes. And they seem to have added more casual dishes...hamburgers, ......!
We had the calamari appetizer and it was very good. We also had the blue cheese wedge salad and it was very good. We also had the shrimp appetizer and it was very good...3 shrimp. We were full and decided to skip the main entrees. The bread is also very good.
We also noticed that the patio windows are in need of cleaning.

Had a very nice dinner for 2 with my girlfriend. They had a wide selection of champagne and we enjoyed a romantic dinner near the fire.

Went to Spark on Saturday night to watch sunset and have light dinner - I like their new charcuterie and cheese options, and they have a good beer and wine selection by the glass.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed the food. Never an empty glass. Great music.

Love the prime rib!
Friday night is prime time. All four us enjoyed it very much. Kevin did a great job with recommendations. Always a beautiful view of the beach.

This is one of those restaurants
This is one of those restaurants that you might not think of when you're looking for a nice place to go in HB but is really worth your while to check out. Nice outdoor patio area with a great view of the pier, water and sunset.

Had a wonderful dinner, we had Gina for a server she took great care of us . Food was great , love the view of the ocean, off shore wind blowing on the waves as the sun sets. My wife loves the bread pudding for desert. Thanks

HB Resident Spark Grill Lover
We've lived in HB for over 20 years. We've always enjoyed the location when it was a "different" name. However, the food is fabulous now. Great menu! Street noise a little loud but, it's Surf City! Always take guests there!

We happened upon Sparks on 4th of July about 6 years ago while visiting S.California from Indiana. We been back to the west coast a few times since then and each time we have to include Sparks into our trip. The view is amazing, the food is delicious, and the best part is the consistency. My daughters favorite is the Honey Peppered Atlantic Salmon... I personally could have had an entire meal of the corn chowder!

a nice evening, as always
Spark has been a favorite of ours for a few years now. They have a martini list that is full of tasty choices and the food is always good and well prepared.
We like dining out on the patio and it is especially nice when the fire pit is lit.
We are downtown quite a bit since I work there with the public as a local photographer. We always recommend Spark to the travelers we meet for a classy, quiet dining experience that is different than most of the other restaurants in downtown H.B, always putting emphases on the martini list and great food.

I took my wife here for her birthday. This was our 4th or 5th visit. The food is always good and the occasion memorable.
