    The food is always flavorful without being heavy or high in calories. Also the service is top notch. My drink refills arrived even before I realized I was running out. Our server was constantly anticipating our needs whether it was to clear finished dishes, refills or bringing the dessert tray at the right moment.

    Everything was amazing. From the food, location, service, decor were all fantastic. I would recommend Bosscat. We had the short ribs and salmon dishes along with the Malbec and red blend wine. The food and wine were amazing. I came in from Long Beach and would gladly drive to eat there again.

    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 Orange County

Located in the sunny state of California, Orange County is known for its many tourist attractions. Considering that Orange County consists of 34 cities and is more populous than 21 U.S. states, you can bet the attractions include not only the best surfing beaches, the Balboa ferry, and sites like Knott’s Berry Farm and Disneyland but also a huge selection of restaurants. The warm climate enhances the growth of fresh, organic vegetables and fruits, which can be found in many restaurants. Although iconic California foods like Rocky Road ice cream and sourdough bread may have originated in other CA cities, they’re also popular in Orange County. Fast food places, drive-ins, and Korean barbecues are popular in this area, too. Smoothies in the summer, however, take the cake.
