What happened to Capital Seafood?? We came for dim sum during lunch time. Food was not good and we constantly needs to get waiter attention for anything we need. Being in Irvine Spectrum, I would expect everything to be alittle better. Very disappointed.
Poor service. Food was alright and nothing special. You are paying for the location. Portions were great.
Love the dim sum. Service is excellent.
It was quite cool because the door to the room was open, but I can understand because of current conditions of Covid.
We had a party of 7 for dim sum. Service was bad ... most of the waiters were not checking on you whether if you need to order, drinks refilled and utensils. Had to flag them down every single time. The prices are outrageous, $20 for a small plate do fried rice. The bathrooms are super dirty and no one cared if it needed attention. Won’t go back!!!
No wait with our reservation. Plenty of sushi options. Staff very helpful and accommodating.
As usual the service and food are second to none! James, Charles & staff gave us all the attention needed for a mini bi celebration! Can’t say enough about how good this place is! Thanks again for making it extra special!
Service is poor.
They did not check my reservation at all.
Delicious food. Would definitely go again
Well executed. Average food for the price
-Overall, very good!
-The restaurant did not confirm our arrival with OpenTable and I received an email about missing my reservation. I believe this has been resolved.
Best chines food ever
The waiter was a bit rude and our of it but the owner is nice chang
He always makes things good And enjoyable
Restaurant is beautiful been going there for 3 years love it
The food was excellent!! The Staff was attentive and meticulous in following COVID safety regulations. Dim Sum is selected from a paper menu instead of from trays on wheels and quickly served. My husband also ordered the pork fried rice and loved it!
Excellent meal and service. The food quality and quantity has remained consistent even during the pandemic. Hard working staff made the staff enjoyed. Rated 4 stars because one dish was missing. Never received it.
Seated quickly and food was good.
The service was great and I especially loved that we could sit outside with the warmers. It brought back that feeling of being able to have lunch out even in these scary times. The place and the food service was clean and I really appreciated the small prepackaged sauces to avoid cross contamination. The food was good but got cold quickly, it’s not anyone’s fault but that’s why the four stars.
It was a good experience. Serving sizes are big and great for families. Any place that offers outdoor dining is wonderful and I will definitely be back!
Service is slow but the food is good!!
Fantastic they are very safe and following all safety requirements. Always a great meal
Last day before 3rd stay home restrictions!!!
Very efficient and great food
Wonton soup, garlic green beans, and pork fried rice were delicious. Food was acceptably warm. Delivery and service was fast, but as the restaurant filled up, we had to flag down staff to clear plates and pay. Despite this, they were professional and polite.
The tables were spread nicely apart for COVID. Food was good but overpriced. Staff was not as attentive as I would have liked. Took about 15 minutes before a server came to take our order.
Best service, corner table, very safe
tasty food, great services, clean environment. Food not salty, nor greasy, but with full and layers of flavors. :))
Too much MSG
Great food, fast service. Love this place.
Horrible experience!!! Service was non existence!!! Sat for 20-30 mins before our order was taken after we had to flag down and scream excuse me for service. Waters never refilled and had to walk up front for the check! Noodles overcooked and soggy, duck over fried! Never coming back here again!!!
Ok but not great food. Service and ambiance were good.
Great food and service
Excellent Chinese food, with all the classic menu items. High quality ingredients. Ambiance was still pretty nice despite the COVID-mandatory outdoor seating. Service was no-nonsense, non-intrusive, and timely. Perfect for hosting my Chinese parents/in-laws.
Great option for dinner outsider due to Covid restrictions.
Poor food quality , expected better dim sum for a Chinese restaurant in California . However then what can we get from a restaurant inside a mall.
Actually the nicest Covid experience to date: it felt nice, almost refined and the service was very attentive (usually not so). The dim sum is a little above average but the choice is good,prices are a little high but still good value.
It felt like well organized dining unlike a few other places I have tried that feel stuck together: give them a break,take some friends for dim sum even on a hot day it was comfortable!
Not enough servers. Never got a single refill of water.
Everything is fine. I booked it at 7:45pm from open table, when I got there. No table was available. I still need to wait about 25mins. I understand it was busy though. Just not set up the schedule time that close to the next available time.
Best Chinese seafood I've had in a very long time. Our waiter was very helpful. The only reason I gave them 4 stars is because when we walked in we had to wait for a few minutes before anyone showed up to greet us and show us to our table and we really wanted to get their bbq pork buns which wasn't available unless we got the appetizer platter.
The food is good but I think they put way too much msg or chicken powder in it, because I can feel my blood pressure rising. The service is good though. I want the food to taste more natural.
It is great that they set up tables outside.
Food was ok, not great. I’ve had better in SF where I live. Service was fine. We ate outside. We had the dim sum sampler, orange chicken, filet mignonette cubes, beef lo mein. All was a little too greasy.
