Food good, but not awesome. Should have had more garlic jalapeno potatoes on the plate, but, they were very tasty. The salsa is the best I have ever had. My husband's short ribs had some grisle. Mine were good. The desert was delicious and free as it was my birthday. I think they are sweet fried donuts with chocolate and caramel dipping sauce. Maybe called churros. Music was terrible. Nothing but drums and no melody. MoreOpenTable Diner -

It’s like being in Italy! And they have a garbanzo based gluten free pizza, which is great for me as I don’t eat bread. Cocktails are awesome! I asked them to make it a little less bright in the dinning room and the place looked really romantic. It’s worth the drive to go try some house made mozzarella. The ingredients are fresh and the olive oil it’s the real deal! MoreOpenTable Diner -
Diners' Choice Winners: Best Overall
South Orange County's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
We met Pascal through his dining experiences at Sherman Library and Gardens, and after enjoying several dinners there we went with our 4 co-diners/friends to Pascal’s restaurant. From Pascal’s personal greeting when we arrived to JB’s attentive service to the amazing food, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. We especially recommend the grilled octopus, beet salad, duck a l’orange, sea bass, lamb chops, and any of the desserts. They also have a pastry case in front so if you just want a snack or dessert to go, I’ll bet you will be glad you stopped in. Side note: I personally wish he wouldn’t offer foie gras due to the inhumane treatment the ducks/geese endure so I hope he will reconsider this. MoreOpenTable Diner -

With more than a thousand restaurants to choose from in the Orange County area, there is something to suit every taste when dining out.

Orange County restaurants serve American fare as well as international cuisine like Thai and Japanese dishes.
