1st Class Dim Sum!
Delicious, authentic dim sum is pretty much the main reason to go there. If you're looking for a place to sit and soak up the atmosphere, this is NOT the place. Not that the decor isn't beautiful or that the seating isn't comfortable, but this place is PACKED when lunch time rolls around. So you're meant to get in, eat, and get out so the next party can get sat. For American diners, definitely try the egg rolls and fried wontons which have large, whole shrimp wrapped in them. For Asian or more adventurous diners, the tripe is cooked perfectly, not too tender or too chewy and the daikon stewed with the tripe is sweet and soft without melting into nothingness.

Great food, worst parking lot.
Still had to wait 15 - 20 minutes even with an Open Table reservation.
Overall Excellent Chinese food. Our group ordered a wide variety of meat, seafood and veggie dishes and we were happy with every plate.
Be forewarned: the plaza parking lot is a complete nightmare. As great as the restaurant is, finding an actual parking space is such a royal pain (especially on the wknd during dinner hours) that it dissuaded my family and friends from ever wanting to return there again.

Group dinner at Capital Seafood
Our group of nine people chose Capital Seafood for our meeting and it turned out to be a great choice. The food was delicious and the portions were huge. The noise level was a little high for us to actually have a discussion with everyone at the table, but it was an excellent atmosphere for socializing. We will definitely be back.

Tasty, traditional, favorite
Love the seafood here, prepared in the mostly traditional style. Fresh seafood for a family friendly price. We were a group of 12 celebrating a birthday and thoroughly enjoyed the lobster, thai basil clams, and peking duck!

We were there few times and we will come again. The food is the best!!!! The service is superb and always friendly.
We always make reservation ahead of time so we never wait. Parking was a bit of a problem.

Took our family to dinner, everyone loved the food and service. Will be back soon. Only downside is the traffic in the parking lot and the difficulty locating parking.

A Great Dim Sum Place
This restaurant serves great dim sum and delicious desert. The restaurant is clean, beautiful, spacious, and affordable. I think it's the best in town for dim sum and Peking duck. I go there frequently with my friends, co-workers, and family.

American Chinese Fusion
Has most of the Asian favorites like har gow and siu mai and a few fusion items like a green spinach har gow like skin with mushrooms, baby corn, bamboo shoots, and a few other ingredients. Not bad for Irvine. Would still recommend it. Great for non-Asians too. Please keep in mind that this is Irvine so the prices will reflect this. Service was outstanding! Felt we were well taken care of. Thank you to the staff!
