    A bit of something for everyone on the menu, delicious health consensus options. I loved the Chilean sea bass, and addon crab polenta, meatball appetizer is great, and their desert shots are awesome size and taste. Our server Felix was very helpful and accommodating. We'll definitely be back.

    Food was incredible! Perfect place for a cute dinner with friends or a date night. Drinks were good and definitely strong, but no complaints on that. Service was good, our server lagged a bit at the end but the majority of the time he was quick and helpful. Will definitely be back!

    The sides have reduced in size and quality of ingredients. Bread is now a fee and less of it (hardly enough for 2 people). Although the steak and Chilean WSB was on point. Will come back, but will be making new decisions.

Discover Costa Mesa

Home to the largest shopping mall on the West Coast as well as Orange County's airport, Costa Mesa is also one of the OC's favorite food destinations. Sample fine French dining on the roof of huge South Coast Plaza or taste European-inspired small plates with exotic ingredients in a trendy eatery. Seafood restaurants aren't plentiful, but you'll find some of the county's Asian-style hot crab and shrimp restaurants in this Costa Mesa neighborhood. Eclectic restaurants gather near John Wayne Airport where surprisingly excellent breakfast spots are hidden in anonymous-looking office parks and grand sushi restaurants share parking lots with high-end Mexican food establishments.
