    Overall a fantastic experience from start to finish. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious and the ambiance was amazing… But the drinks were outrageously expensive, why is a martini with only 3 ounces of vodka $39… That is ridiculous and needs to be addressed but everything else was PERFECT…

    I was only disappointed we were put at a table in the corner, near where employees go to the kitchen. We were the first guests arriving, so I would’ve liked a better view, as requested. Overall everything was fantastic, the service, the food, all amazing! We can’t wait to be back!

    Food is great but service was just okay that night. The lights were broken so went on and off and we had to move table. Not entirely their fault but it made dinner less enjoyable.

    The best overall dining option in south Orange County. Been coming here for years. Love the food, the drinks, and the vibe. If you don’t have a reservation then just sit at the bar and enjoy. All staff are excellent. Tried the Mishima ultra tonight it was like heaven.

    It’s memorable experience. The receptionist asked us if it’s special occasion for us when we checked in. It’s our 26th anniversary since our first dating. They offered us a patio table with a breathtaking sunset view and glasses of champagne. Great food quality and great service. An amazing experience. Definitely we will come back again.

    We dined here on the last night of our honeymoon. Everything was fantastic! Beautiful table outdoors, overlooking the pool and resort with an ocean view. Very professional and attentive servers. Our dinner was beautifully presented and so delicious! We had the ahi tuna tartare, beet salad, filet, frites, the best Brussels we have ever had, truffle Mac and cheese, and chocolate pretzel bar for dessert. A truly special night and fabulous experience!

    The service was fantastic. Our booth was perfect for a couple celebrating a birthday. The restaurant was rather crowded for a Thursday night and a little noisy. The complimentary food items delivered to each table were a nice plus. The shrimp cocktail presentation and taste was terrific and the highlight of the meal. Our filet was just OK. We have had better at most of the other high end, or even moderately-priced, restaurants in the area. Prices are very high and do not result in the expected food quality. Our large baked potato side was cold inside and the butter would not melt. It's appearance seemed to denote a potato baked several hours earlier. The extensive wine list is very over priced and borders on gouging. The beignet and creme brulee dessert is very good. It is a shame that the quality of the main course did not live up to the five-star reputation of the hotel. I certainly don't mind paying exceptionally prices for quality. Bourbon Steak only got it half right.

    This is still be best steak in SoCal. Attentive excellent service. They are much better at preparing their meats. If they have the wagyu ribeye cap as a special, it’s well worth it.
