Diner Reviews
  • "Tusca restaurant is located in the lobby of the Hyatt Regency hotel. The lobby is impressive because of its soaring atrium; the restaurant is located in the atrium. The quality of the food and service is what you would expect at an upscale hotel. The price was reasonable. Tusca is not a destination fine dining restaurant but if one seeks a reasonable meal at a reasonable price, then Tusca can be recommended. Complimentary valet parking is available at the entrance to the hotel."

  • "I hoped this would be a lovely restaurant, but they were not prepared for the convention which was in town in the moment, which is totally bonkers because it is when they had a half empty restaurant and it took over an hour and a half to get soup and an order of chicken and a pizza. The waiter was kind...but we sat waiting for him and had to ask the maitre d to find him for us so we could order. It was not relaxing....because it took too long for everything."

  • "We dined at Tusca on 12/29/2013 and we were VERY DISAPPOINTING. The food tasted terrible. The service was not so good either. I choose this place as we were staying at the hotel and the reviews i read on this place were 4 stars. I don't know who would rate this place 4 stars as it is only a one star or below restaurant. I would not recommend this restaurant."

  • "We dined at Tusca with two kids because of the kids eat free menu, and we were very disappointed with the service and the quality of the food. Three pasta dishes we ordered were around $20 a dish, and they came out cold and dry. The roast chicken was fatty and tasted re-heated. The kids meals were very bland that even the kids didn't want to eat them. Our server forgot to bring out the beers we had ordered. Overall we will not be going back and would not recommend this restaurant."

  • "We had dinner here because we stayed in a hotel close by. The service, quality of the food and ambience was just okay. Nothing special."

  • "I dine at Tusca quite often for mainly breakfast and/or dinner. This location is inside the Hyatt hotel in Garden Grove. It is open and airy and the food is always cooked to my liking. In addition to the great food, the service is definitely world class. Our server was beyond attentive and **everyone** we came into contact with was incredibly friendly, caring, and willing to accommodate us in anyway possible. It is just an overall wonderful experience when we dine at Tusca, which is why we continue to return."

  • "Went for girls night out dinner, party of 4. Awesome experience! Service was outstanding, server was attentive, made great recommendations, brought all the extras we asked for, kept our table clear and our glassed full. Perfectly paced meal! Had calamari and white bean soup for appetizers, both were yummy. For dinner, we had the braised short ribs, the pan seared scallops, the clam linguine and the frutti de mare pasta. All prepared as described in the menu, all delicious. They know how to make the sauces for all these dishes and seasoned them well (you know that's what can really make or break a dish!). For dessert, had the caramel apple tart, tiramisu, and pistachio cake. All quite different, all quite good. Recommended!"

  • "My husband, sister and I dined at TusCA on November 2, 2013, since we were staying at the Hyatt. Made reservations for 6pm (right when they open for dinner), in order to catch a 8PM concert at the Honda Center. Our server Taylor was made aware that we were catching a 8pm concert, and we wanted to finish our meal before 7PM. She went out of her way to make sure that our food was delivered in a timely fashion, and when the soup I ordered didn't come out in time due to a kitchen ingredient glitch, and both our server and the TusCA manager both went out of their way to make sure that we were satisfied with everything even though we completed the meal before 7pm. All the food that we ordered were delicious - We will return!"

  • "Tusca should advertise their breakfast buffet on their website. I went to Tusca with my boyfriend for breakfast and was pleasantly surprised to find out they offered a buffet breakfast that included coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice. Everything was great. They even offered a made to order omelet bar."

  • "I don't expect a lot from a hotel restaurant. This one is located right next to the lobby, so that is why a low score on ambience, although it does look nice enough. The food was very good. I had risotto with scallops and prawns and the portion was large! Great bread with a sampling of olive oil, roasted garlic, and white bean puree for spreads. Excellent service! Overall I was surprised how good the food was and how much I enjoyed my experience."

  • "The atmosphere is very open and beautiful. I did not feel like I was trapped inside a small building. The food was aptly priced and was very delicious (Tiramisu was to die for). Service was excellent, did not have to wait long for a waiter to come help us. Would definitely return again!"

  • "We ate here on a Travel-zoo deal. We started off with the Antipasti Misti. So glad we did. We enjoyed the smoked Italian meats and sampled some unique cheeses (including one with truffle dust... yummy!) The Misti came with an assortment of "condiments" including fig paste, walnut halves, honey on the comb, sweet baby gherkins, house-made mustard, and more. What a treat to the palette! We both ordered the grilled salmon (artichoke capanota, potato gnocchi, micro basil). Very well presented and tasty. Salmon was nicely seared on the outside, yet still moist and tender on the inside. Dessert was homemade and wonderful, too! Our waiter, Kamar, was provided excellent service! Atrium atmosphere is upscale and modern."

  • "Had some awesome drinks. portion size is small. we are vegetarian so the options are limited. food is good.....little on expensive side but worth the ambience and service."

  • "I took my mother for mothers day 2013, we had never been to TusCa before and she really enjoyed it. The dining area is inside but you fell like your outside. Its an open layout inside the Hotel, but all the windows floor to ceiling make you feel like you are outside. The staff was amazing, the food was very good, more meats at the carving station is my only complaint, they only had pork.... I would go again especially for mothers day. It was reasonably priced and for 10$ more you get unlimited champagne for mothers day brunch. I would recommend this place, and I eat out quite often, i would say BELiSIMO!!!!!"

  • "This place was definitely a good find. The whole experience was a positive one."

  • "I absolutely loved this restaurant and the menu options. Their tiramisu without a doubt has been the best BEST I ever had in my life. I appreciated the staff addressing me by my name. It made me feel appreciated and wanted - not as if I was just another guest."
    Dined on 4/11/2013
  • "Tusca is located in a fabulous and sparkling 17-story atrium. ambience is casual/elegant. cozy booths. The menu is small but well chosen. I ordered the roasted beets salad, and the short rib torn pasta. They were equally delicious. Drinks (i had a cosmopolitan) are well made. Desserts----we ordered several-----are to die for. We were a party of four, and everyone loved what they ordered. Surprisingly, our meal was not extremely expensive! We are definitely coming back!"

  • "Great meal. Best Ordervers in Orange County. Don't miss the TUSCA."
    Dined on 3/8/2013
  • "Read the reviews from past guests and expected the food to be better than it was. Spagetti sauce tasted like it was out of a jar and bland. Meatballs and sea food were unimpressive. Pork chop dinner was good. Overall - a hotel restaurant."
    Dined on 2/14/2013
  • "It really didn't deliver based on all the reviews I read. It's located in the lobby of the Hyatt which really isn't a great location. Supposed to be an Italian restaurant, but besides a few pictures on the wall it's tough to determine how it's Italian? Food was just ok, nothing special, prices were reasonable for the location, but I prob wouldn't return. I tend to support non-chains that offer great food selection and signature dishes"

  • "Breakfast buffet $19.99 was high with a little more than a continental breakfast offering. Is cheaper and fresher to order from the menu"

  • "The staff went out of their way to make everything wonderful. We were staying in another hotel and saw that others had rated this place very favorably so we tried it and were very pleased."

  • "We came down to celebrate a 50th birthday...the food was excellent quality and the service was notably polite and attentive. Even with a party of 8 adults, 2 children and 1 toddler, there were no issues and we were able to enjoy ourselves as a result of the waiters oversight. We were even given our desert as a compliment to celebrate the big occasion."
    Dined on 12/2/2012
  • "yes, I know a hotel restaurant is not suppose to be good...but guess what, there's an exception to every rule. Each time I stay here, the meals are great and Hyatt proves that it pays to invest in the kitchen. The service has been great each time"

  • "Hosted business dinner. Seating areas allowed for small private groups, good central location for travelers. Ordered appetizers, drinks, dinner. Food was very good. Service could have been more attentive."

  • "Tusca was bad! From the Internet it looked appealing. Friday nights option were depressing so I ate at the oc bar. I even made reservations at opentable!"
    Dined on 6/22/2012
  • "This is very much a classic low end hotel style buffet breakfast and not memorable in any way. The restaurant ambiance is very outdated and open to the hotel lobby so all the hussel and bussel of hotel guest is heard through every bite. This would be a great place for families with big appetites on a budget. Otherwise, don't waste your time!"
    Dined on 5/13/2012
  • "Everything was amazing! How would have thought that hotel food could be so flavorful! I would absoultely recommend this place to all my friends and family! Cant wait to dine there again.."
    Dined on 5/4/2012
  • "The food is good and we drank nice wine. It is noisy due to the acoustics of the open atrium but we could still hear our party so worked out well. The service, however, was slow. Slow to take our order, slow to bring the drinks and slow to bring the food. It was a busy night with lots of full tables but there was a trade show in town so that should have been expected and more staff brought in accordingly."
    Dined on 3/10/2012
  • "We ate at TusCA for breakfast. Our reservations were basically useless; this resturant does not distinguish between guests with reservations and walk-ins. We all had to wait in the same long line that snaked well past the hotel's front desk. Worse yet was the rude hostess who marked us as a "No Show" on Open Table--despite my direct inquiry regarding our reservation. We had to write back to receive the OT dining credit. Melody, our server, was much more pleasant. We won't eat here again unless they provide guests holding reservations a way of by-passing the line for walk-ins."
    Dined on 2/18/2012
  • "Service was friendly but slow. Appears as though only one server worked to whole floor. Appetizer was given as complimentary so that was a plus. Air conditioning was too cold for comfort."
    Dined on 2/14/2012
  • "Very good food. Our only complaint is that the atmosphere was cold. Everytime the door opened, a blast of cold air blew threw. There was no escaping it."
    Dined on 2/14/2012
  • "TusCA is a great restaurant with beautiful presentation on their dishes, however while they definitely shine in the presentation department sadly they fail in the quality department. They were out of the Pork Loin and served me Pork Chop instead. The chop proved to be quite tough. The pizzas are a bit overpriced as well."
    Dined on 2/13/2012
  • "I found this restaurant to be appealing due to the setting, good food and excellent service. It is a good value for the money. I will come back."

  • "Basically a little bistro/dinner spot jammed into the lobby of a hotel. We grabbed a last-minute reservation here for lack of anywhere else nearby. The ambience wasn't great (though certainly good enough for a biz meeting), but the food was surprisingly decent."
    Dined on 1/19/2012
  • "We were at Tusca on a night when they only offered the buffet. It was $23 per person for adults and half price for kids. The problem is that we aren't big eaters, so it ended up being a really expensive meal for not much food. They didn't offer an option to eat off the menu. In retrospect, we should have walked across to street to a different restaurant. I think their food would be better for us on a night that allowed ordering from the menu."

  • "The selection of the Thanksgiving buffet dishes were very limited.....Closer to Cafeteria style. The food tempeture was warm a best, but not hot. Butter for the rolls were not refilled timely. The pies were limited as well and they appeared to be store bought. Right out of a box. The bread pudding was good. Overall very Disappointing. Not what you would expect from a hotel Buffet, this was like Caeteria sytle buffet."
    Dined on 11/24/2011
  • "I love this place! The menu choices are limited, but the food is very good. I really love that for the most part this restaurant is very quiet and relaxing (something hard to find in Orange County, especially in the Disneyland area)."

  • "We came here for my mom's birthday. My dad got the pizza with shrimp, my mom and brother got the whole wheat pasta with chicken, and I got the sea bass. I loved the vegetable farro that came with my sea bass. Everyone else enjoyed their meals. The portions are small, but that's just because people are used to getting tons of food. It's actually the perfect amount. I wouldn't go here without a coupon, though. They didn't mention our free appetizer for reserving a table on Open Table, but when I asked, she brought it right out. Our waitress was very nice and attentive!"
