    Really enjoy having this restaurant nearby. For special occasions, brunch, lunch or business meetings, nothing beats it in this neighborhood. The entertainment can be top shelf at times, and is always excellent.

    This has always been a great spot for dinner but I had not thought of it for a lunch meeting. It is very quiet during the day and it's easy to get a reservation even if you have a larger group. The location is great if you need to meet with people who are coming from LA, OC or Long Beach. The food is always great. The only drawback is that it is pricey.

    We had not been to this restaurant for quite some time. (Over the years we have been there many times.) The menu has changed since our last visit. Not nearly as interesting now. Seems more limited also. We only found a few items we would order. Used to be we had a hard time choosing from many. Prices have gone up substantially. $50 for halibut and salad. Up the street at The Original Fish Co its $28 and you also get two sides. I am sure the Spaghettini fish is good but I know the TOFC fish is excellent. Other menu items seem over priced; maybe why tables were available on a Saturday night. We will probably not return.

    Food tasted and looked both very good. Waitress very nice. Lounge had live band to listen to after dinner that didn't invade dining area so no interference with conversation. Seating comfortable. A little dark, which I liked. Entrée order separate from soup or salad so dinner expensive. My salad, pasta, and desert and soda, no alcohol, was $65 plus tip. For the price it would not be a weekly event but only special occasions that I would go there.

    We dine at Spaghettini's about one a month, and never have we experienced anything but stellar service and awesome food. the place is CONSISTENT in all aspects. We love, love dining here—whether it's for a special occasion, or simply because we need our "Spaghettini fix." The rack of lamb is amazing, as is the parmesan-crusted sea bass, horseradish crusted halibut....I could go on. Our favorite server is Danny. He is so personable, and really takes pride in customer service when serving his tables.

    Spaghettini has been around for years and continues to be an excellent restaurant with great food and outstanding service. I met a friend for dinner and we were afforded all the time we wanted to chat, without being rushed. We both ordered different fish dishes and the preparation was perfect. Our waiter suggested a dessert that we could not resist and it was delicious. Don't miss an opportunity to dine here!

    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!!!

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.
