The place could have been great if the service was at least ok. However, from getting seated to paying the bill was unspeakable. The server took a long time just to get our drinks. When drinks were brought to our table, there 3 drinks missing. Food was served one at a time. We have 2 little kids and 1 food was served and the other one kids meal was served late. Server do not check if you need anything or if meal was even ok. You have to stand up and raise your hand and call him to get the attention.
They were really short servers. Food took a long time & getting things like plates & extra napkins was a mission. Food was cold by time we actually had plates to eat it.
We were encouraged to sit outside. We were promised a free dessert, we even weren’t offered one. Felt as we were used to attract costumers by sitting outside (it was chilly, and the outside heater was not working). But the food was good.
The food was plentiful and flavor excellent! The restaurant was quiet. Service was a little slow but pleasant.
Very friendly staff and comfortable place to eat prior to going to the movies or going to Burke Williams spa. The owner, Jim, was extremely attentive to us.
I took my son who is in college at Chapman and 6 of his friends out for dinner, and we had a great time! We wetre seated at a perfect table outside. The host wqs lovely! Our first waitress did not seem very interested in serving us, but we soon learned that our "actual" waiter had been on a break, and when he took over, the service was wonderful! The food is fabulous, fresh, and interesting. This is the third time I've taken a large group to your restaurant, and have not been disappointed except for the small annoyance of a "stand-in" server not being on her top service behavior because she was covering for someone else.
Great place to people watch while having some tasty appetizers.
Excellent service and good food. Will continue to dine there.
We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio on a Friday night. We ordered the hummus as well as the pear salad for appetizers. Both arrived quickly along with our Sangria. The sangria was good, but a little watered down. The kids loved the pizzas and the meat kebabs were delicious and cooked perfectly. We had great service and look forward to coming back soon.
We went for a girls night out. It was fun, yummy, and just plain different. Exactly what we wanted! I really love the Cuban skewers they are my favorite. I recommend this restaurant to everyone in Orange County who is looking for something that is a little different.
While our waiter was very nice and accommodating, he disappeared for long periods of time (asked for a heater to be moved close to us and had to ask another waiter for help, dessert took forever, asked for check and never saw him again - had to track him down). Our reservation was at 6pm and planned for a little birthday shopping afterwards, but wasn't able to leave the restaurant until 8:30pm (stores closed at 9pm).somewhat disappointing
A must have is the Chilled Mediterranean Spinach dip and the Ceviche. Both great to share.
Came here Mothers day around 10:30 am. Greeted at the door and given a gift for Mothers day and seated immediately as we did have reservations. We sat on the patio our server was friendly and came right away to take our drink orders and tell us about the buffet.
The food was yummy had a little bit everything the desserts seem a little too sweet and rich for my likely especially the mousse. overall experience was awesome and def will be back as we do frequent this place often for happy hr and the Easter brunch :)
Lobster tacos dry and tasteless. I have had so much better tacos for half the price.
Love the service, good food, great setting. We will meet there every month.
Good spot, good food, great service, will visit again.
Service was great! Paella was awesome! They had a good selection of cocktail drinks. I liked how the place was not so crowded on a Friday evening.
Love the energy and overall vibe of the restaurant. The service is fantastic and servers very friendly and entertaining. The menu selections are varied and delicious and reasonable. The Spanish anti pasto salad served on a painters pallette is generous and quality meat and cheeses. The meat and shrimp skewers were really good as well as the Cajun egg rolls. A great change from typical cafe food.
We couldn't hear ourselves over the music, our waiter said he asked someone to turn it down three separate times yet he still had to yell for us to hear him. Some of our food didn't taste very fresh, and we had to send it back. My food didn't come until everyone else was almost done eating, and I'm the pregnant one, I ate an entire basket of chips and salsa while I waited. Our saving grace was that our server was very apologetic and sweet and we all tipped him heartily because despite all the mess he was very polite and tried to be as helpful as he could. Would come back for chips and salsa.
Met up with people i havent seen in a decade we all ordered a dew small plates and shared everything it was a slow night. The only issue was our drinks would empty and we would have to actually spend time and effort flagging someone down to get water or sodas refilled. But regardless its a great little place very unique.
