    I went mainly to hear a friend perform and had dinner as well. The service was top-notch and the decor warm. The food, while very good and cooked to perfection, was very expensive. The bill for one person with a 20% tip was over $100.00 and I did NOT have the most expensive item on the menu nor was there any alcohol involved. I'll go again for the live shows but will probably skip dinner.

    Spaghettini is one of my favorite SoCal restaurants. The service, food and entertainment is consistently top-notch. It's awesome to see couples on romantic date nights, girlfriends enjoying a fun evening out and families with young children in the same place! The bruschetta and pommery shrimp are my personal faves. Kudos to this awesome establishment!

    I was drinking at the bar, transferred to dinner table after my party showed up. Waitress somehow forgotten, food & drink was removed and we waited. Manager came up to apologize and replenish with a new order plus a couple of drinks no charge. Server was exceptionally friendly and courteous every step of the way. Just love it, I've been there before and love it but this is unforgettable. Now, I'll go out of my way to go there more frequently even though I live in Newport Beach

    That's place was excellent. We went for Sunday brunch. We booked the reservation on open table, but we didn't know that the jazz lounge was a totally separate purchase. However, the manager hooked us up with seats in the veranda. We were still able to experience the jazz, but have some privacy also. The service was top notch. If you want to seat in the lounge, make reservations early. They book out weeks ahead.

    We've enjoyed the fabulous brunch at Spaghettini, but went there for our "date night" dinner. The jazz was playing in the lounge, but the atmosphere in the dining room was quiet enough to enjoy each other. Natalie was our server who was attentive to all our needs. It was a busy night for the restaurant, so what a pleasant surprise to meet Cecil the GM who had no hesitation about diving in to help his fine staff. The cocktails were exactly to our liking, the food was divine. Fresh halibut and a perfectly cooked rack of lamb with tasty and creative sides made this a wonderful dinner. Chef Victor came out to introduce himself, and treated us to the lightest tastiest chocolate chip cookies. This truly was an evening to remember.

    We thoroughly enjoyed dining at Spaghettini. The menu was creative, yet unpretentious, and the portions generous. We began with cocktails and shared a perfect classic Caesar salad as well as a great corn and lobster chowder. Our entrees included a braised beef and a pasta dish. Wine recommendations paired nicely. We did not remain for the jazz performance, but look forward to doing so on our return.

    The good is great, but expensive. They've raised their rates and now won't allow you to bring your entree home. After tip, our brunch for 3 was $215. I think they should reconsider their take home policy. I've been going there for years but will not be visiting again for another year.

    This was a great dining experience for a Sunday Brunch. The only thing that would have made it better is if the buffet was organized differently to avoid a long line got food just to get food. There should be food specific stations so the lines are shorter. Pasta section, salads, seafood station, etcetera. Overall great experience & the band was terrific!!!

    Met a girl friend here for catch-up dinner after not seeing her for a long time. Great food and WONDERFUL service. Our waiter was incredibly attentive and even took our picture and gave us a photo each as keepsakes. Since I don't live in Southern California, it was a nice experience to return to a restaurant that I have dined at many times in the past and see that food and service were still top shelf.

    Everything is perfect, except the food. Don't get me wrong, the food is great, but it doesn't live up to the best of its hype. I mean, the lamb was great, but it wasn't something I couldn't get several other places. The best dishes are the bisque / crab cake appetizer and the rabbit, which are a bit more inspired. So, my point is the food is very good, but uninspiring. I think it's great for business dinners and dinners with groups of people where you don't know everyone's taste because the menu is generic enough that everyone will find something they like.

    Food was not quite on par this time due to a change in chef. Starting with the bread, it was stale and hard so I asked for another batch and it was better but still not the quality and deliciousness as before. Not sure when they got a new chef but even my short ribs wasn't as good and the sea bass was just ok. Both plates used to be mouth-watering fantastic!!! Trying too hard to make food more contemporary but I like old school, traditional food since that's what spaghettini is. Truly disappointed in the food this time. Calamari, Apple martini and service was still excellent though!

The ambience was excellent. They have a couple guys that work there, James and Gerald who make Spaghettini the great place it is. They will do anything to make your evening the best it can be. I can come here with friends to party in the lounge or come here for a great dinner, either way, you can't lose.

    The food was outstanding; however, the service was a bit poor....our waiter named Luke didn't even offer us bread. One of the additional servers offered us bread 5 minutes after our main courses were served to us despite having ordered an appetizer and salads. We ordered wine and he didn't even to put in in a chiller for us...we had to ask for it.

    I've eaten at Spaghettini Restaurant many times, and it has never let me down. Last night, my date and I had the Chilean Sea Bass, which was melt-in-your mouth superb, and the Salmon which was outstanding as well. The wedge salad was delicious as were the grilled brussel sprouts. We chose a bottle of Benvolio Friuli Grave Pinot Grigio to accompany the meal which was perfect.

    Spaghettini is a restaurant/Jazz Club. I took another gentleman for a business dinner and it turned out there was live jazz that night. We found that there are three large dining rooms distant enough from the music that our conversation level (and that of the surrounding patrons) was normal. Our waiter exceeded my expectations, which as a restaurant professional are high. The food was food very good and they had some unique desserts which is hard to find.

    As always, Spaghettini pleases. The anniversary special was delicious per usual. A wonderful addition, however, was the pats of salted butter with delicate fresh chives sprinkled atop. I lathered that on the fresh, hot bread and jeopardized my girlish figure by eating far too many pieces.

The food was outstanding, as usual, and the service was impeccable. We had several managers (Kim, Rob, and Gerald) stop by our table to greet and congratulate us, which we greatly appreciated. Executive Chef Victor stopped by our table to offer congrats. Our server, Danny P., was outstanding. He was very attentive and knowledgeable and gave us some nice menu recommendations. Thank you all for making our special dinner memorable!
