From the very beginning, great getting greeted as we walked in, all the staff from the maître d’, to our excellent waiter, Mitchell And the wait staff (gentleman that served water and bread)Just superior service. We had 2 short rib dinners which were excellent and suggested by our waiter; my daughter’s scallop dinner was also excellent and Desert-also suggested by Mitchell- the flan-Simply scrumptious. I also drink quad espressos on a daily basis And my espresso was fabulous. They served warm milk for my daughters coffee also a Very nice added touch. More

Mexican | Orange, North Orange County

This was some of the best "new" Mexican food I've ever eaten. Rather than plain old chips and salsa, Anepalco delivers a basket of freshly toasted, crispy corn tortillas with two kinds of salsa and an addictive creamy chili dip. My friend and I split some very untraditional yet delicious sopas with bone marrow and great pork tacos. Portion sizes were just right. Also, a creative cocktail menu. All this in a small unassuming restaurant in a hotel off the freeway. Plenty of parking. I highly recommend. More

Irish | Brea / La Habra, North Orange County

The food and drinks are always exceptional. We came on a Tuesday evening and were pleasantly surprised that it was Karaoke Night, so the entertainment added to the value of our experience. The calamari tacos were delicious! My only complaint is that service has been on a steady decline since we started coming a couple of years ago. It took 15 minutes for our server to take our drink orders. He rarely checked in with us, and our drinks sat empty for more than 20 minutes. We had the same experience on our last visit with a different server. More

I always enjoy coming here for lunch and sitting out on the patio. The food is delicious and the service is amazing. My only problem is the noise of the airplanes as they fly over. Still, I enjoy coming here and recommend it. More
