The place is just beautiful, but so noisy that we gave up having much of a conversation. Next time maybe outside would be better. Our service was great and food great but a little pricy!
Viviana was a pleasure and as always the food amazing
So very good, every time we go.
Everything was amazing and delicious. Waiter knew all the best recommendations
Great food! If you love Gabbi's, you must try Chaak. On a sunny, warm, Sunday, I was looking for light, airy and good food with a lot of depth. If you're a foodie, this place is a must. Great interior design and aesthetic. My chilaquiles had an egg at top for brunch. The chicken was moist and the flavor was smokey with a red slightly spicy sauce. The white sangrias are sweet so it was a nice dessert after brunch. They're known for margarita's but I had already tried most.
Best drinks! Loved coming here for brunch. Can only imagine what dinner would be like! 10/10 would recommend.
Our server JJ was amazing!! He provided us with world class service. The Ceviche was delicious.
Favorite restaurant in Orange County
Atmosphere, food, service all great
Brandon is the best! He helped to navigate through the menu and his suggestions from food and drinks were always on point! Amazing experience.
Good unique dishes. Fun vibe and delicious cocktails.
Delicious food, really enjoyed cocktail and great ambiance.
Great food. Interesting combinations.
Our favorite restaurant in the world. You can compare the quality to some of the best restaurants in Europe, Mexico, and South America. We come here for every special occasion and even just when we need to fill the craving. Don’t come here if you don’t want to become OBSESSED. 11/10
Every dish was perfectly prepared with the unique Yucatán flavors.
Birthday dinner with my wife and a group of friends. The food, service, decore and overall atmosphere were exceptional. We ordered a series of plates and shared them with the table. I really think that the best option since they have many unique dishes that everyone will want to try. Can't wait to go back.
Great food! Love the ambience.
Food and service were both excellent. Spencer was great. Came for my mom's birthday and she had a lovely time. Will definitely be back!
The food is STELLAR: delicious, complex, deeply satisfying. I’ve been here twice in one month, and both times the food was impressive, the waiter friendly, the dishes well timed. Chaak is my fave restaurant right now. I already have reservations for a third visit soon.
Had the most wonderful birthday dinner. Antonio and Don made the night unforgettable. The Texas Quail will blow your mind. Not to mention the drinks are to die for.
Loved the pulpit appetizer and parrillada plate. Skip the empanadas, we’re some of the worst I’ve ever had. Great drinks and dessert!
Been here many times and never been disappointed. Consider yourself lucky if you get Dominique as your waitress. Everything is good except the smoked chicken salad. Great red sangria that is different every time you order it. Expanded outdoor seating that you can reserve. Annoying loud music indoors.
I've heard a lot about this place since moving to the area so I popped in after work for a bite at the bar. The food was delicious, had the ceviche campeche & the salute pato ahumado. Both were delicious, definitely one of the top 3 ceviche dishes I've ever had. I would order each item again but I'm excited to return and try other menu items!
Vibe was cool in general, relaxed and trendy, I'd probably return with friends. However, the people near me at the bar gave me a few side eyes lol, other than that everyone was friendly.
Management was visible and filling in the gaps which was nice to see especially since I've noticed a significant decrease in customer service while dining out lately.
All in all great experience with the food, service & ambiance & I can't wait to return.
Spencer was excellent! The food is served family style and the cuisine is unique.
Fantastic service and food
The menu has a great fusion of opposites. I ate the green broth clams with chorizo. Great flavors the drinks are also very flavorful hmm mezcal rocks.
Delicious dinner for 4. We started with small plates of grilled octopus, ceviche, and shrimp, moved on to duck tacos and cheese empanadas, and finished with branzino. Great place for sharing. Service was extraordinary, margaritas delicious. Good place for a celebration. $$$$
Very good food but service was wildly inconsistent for a restaurant with aspirations to be high calibre. Our mains came out 5-10 minutes after we ordered them, drinks regularly empty, and then our dessert took 20 minutes to come out. Drinks so-so but have had more refined and finished cocktails elsewhere.
As always our lunch was delicious with great service in a comfortable setting. Chaak is one of our favorites!
Food is amazing! We especially loved the ceviche. Perfect portions for sharing. Will definitely come back and try different items on the menu.
Delicious food as always. Some pre-pandemic menu items are missing and the menu is much smaller. Hoping they bring those items back...roasted cauliflower appetizer, full selection of panuchos and a few other items. What we ended up ordering was delicious though!
Loved the space and an interesting menu. Glad we chose this place to meet
Food is good but not sure if it’s worth the price.
Great experience, nice setting and such good food. Restaurant was very busy!
Unique dining experience, nice open atmosphere. A bit over priced. Good exotic drinks
Service and ambience was great. The menu was interesting but the food was bland, no heat, no soul, boring. The cocktails were the bland, super sweet with very little alcohol.
Overpriced and apparently there is a kid menu but my waiter failed to mention that so I paid for an adult entree that was too spicy for a child. When we did find out there was a kid menu we ordered the chicken cheese quesadilla and they forgot the chicken. Also, ordered a juice drink without ice...it came with ice. Nice ambience but for this price point I would have expected better service.
Great food and ambiance. Service lacked a little as our waitress didn't inform us when they were out of something (happened 2X). We only found out when the item we requested just didn't show up. Her response when I asked where the food was was"oh we are out of that" Don't know why she couldn't just say that when we ordered it.
All in all very good experience and we'll be back.
Tapas style dishes. We tried empanadas, cochinita pibil (highly recommended), Pollo pitiless and parrillada yucatan. Everything was delicious!
Great atmosphere and not too loud so you could have a decent conversation. There mixed drinks are excellent!
Delicious Mexican food with authentic Yucatan seasoning.
Upscale restaurant - Lunch: 1 Enchilada, 1 Empanada, chips & salsa, Iced tea - $40

We had a delicious dinner in a perfect outdoor setting. Also, a special shout out to Antonio, our knowledgeable server, who brought the fun and great suggestions for a tasty meal.
