    I took my Mom here for her Birthday lunch. The people who work there are very friendly. The decor was warm and inviting. We both loved our food. My Mom ordered the French toast with duck and I ordered a salad with albacore. We give this place 👍👍👍👍👍

    I feel like Mix-Mix is not sure who it wants to be. It has appetizers/tapas all for $9, small plates, entrees, and about the same number of each (5 or 6). It has a nice wine list and water, but I didn't see any other beverages listed on the menu. It also has a fixed price for a three course lunch that is a bargain at $20 compared to what you'd pay if you purchased separately. My problem was choosing something that wasn't spicy. Many items looked good until I read the description which more often than not included siracha (sp?) or other hot pepper seasoning so if you like spicy, you'll have a larger range to order from than I did. I ordered the goat cheese appetizer ($) which was one slice of toasted French bread, goat cheese, halved grapes, toasted almonds and some fresh herbs -- it was delicious. My friend ordered the lunch special consisting of a salad (very good), a margarita pizza -- almost perfect, but they over-salted the crust edges and the sauce left my mouth on fire. It came with ice cream or sorbet and she requested the sorbet -- they brought the check and she reminded them about the sorbet that hadn't been served. I can't imagine what the service would be like if they were busy. Our server was very nice, frequent water refills, but when we needed someone, we couldn't seem to get anyone's attention. The food is very fresh and the menu changes frequently to serve what's in season -- but they don't always keep their online menu up-to-date with what they're actually serving.

    The food here is very solid—flavor, plating and portion but nothing is over the top or special. The pricing is affordable and reasonable. Cutlery, furnishings and plates used were sub-par and does not leave a good impression.

    This eclectic can't-miss menu is served by a friendly, efficient and knowledgable staff in a delightful, comfortable and quiet environment. I can't recommend it enough. They successfully transformed French toast (my favorite) from a ho-hum brunch staple to an art form. Love it!

    Came in late afternoon pre-dinner for a light refreshment and a dessert. Food was fantastic, waiter was friendly, and general setting was laid back and relaxing. Reasonably priced. And infant in stroller friendly! Had a good time and will definitely come back for their prix fixe menu and chef's tasting menu. You won't regret if you are for fusion food. Hands down my new fave after bazarr by Jose Andres.

    The food was excellent! In fact, some of the best tasting and more interesting food that we’ve tried in OC. (The last time we were this excited about a restaurant was after trying Taco Maria for the first time). Chef wasn’t even in the restaurant during our visit and every dish was perfectly seasoned, presented at the right temperature and beautifully plated. The duck was divine as were the pork adobo fried rice and chorizo potato croquettes. The ambiance and overall branding (signage and finishes) does not do the restaurant justice. Had I not read the write up in Modern Luxury, I would have continued to pass by the restaurant thinking it was a quick-casual salad concept.

    Our first time here and the food was excellent. We selected the four course with duck as the entree and other plates were mussels, tostada, roasted mushrooms. All were great although there could be less salt in some items, especially the mussels. The restaurant is tiny with only 5 or so tables inside and 3-4 outside on the patio. There is a patio/lounge chair area outside as well.

    The restaurant is in a nice location and the staff is very friendly. We do wish our waiter had been able to answer more of our questions about the menu (he did come back with the answers later, but we had already placed our order). I can also understand the “no substitution” policy to a point, but if you are not going to allow me to substitute out a turnip then it had better be the best turnip I have ever had and not the tasteless spongy veggie I received.

    The restaurant is located in the South Coast Plaza side on Bear Street that was formerly known as Crystal Court, on the third floor by the elevator. It was indoor and terrace seating and a modern/minimalist feel with neutral colors. We were early so I can't truly describe the noise level when the restaurant is full, but nice and quiet when we were there. The menu is varied but limited and I think they could do with a few more entrees. I felt the appetizers and small plates were well priced but the entrees seemed high to me. As for the food, I started with the goat cheese toast with sliced grapes, toasted slightly sweetened almonds, micro-greens and a drizzle of EVOO. It is definitely one of the best things I've ever eaten and a generous serving. I went on to have the Raviolo with egg -- a house-made large single ravioli with a perfectly runny egg yolk nestled in a bed of herbed ricotta. I just wish they served it with a spoon (or a single crouton) so I could have scooped up the last bit of egg yolk and ricotta. I swear I was tempted to lick the plate. My last dish was the duck breast with blackberries and served with crispy polenta and roasted turnips (I think). Again delicious. The duck was not as crispy as something like Peking duck, but it was far crispier than any French roasted duck I've had and the fat was nicely rendered. It was done to perfection as was the buttery, light and crispy polenta -- to me, the polenta could also be served by itself as a small plate with a sauce on the side. My companion was well-pleased with the house salad and the agnolotti. She is allergic to tomatoes so, on request, they were kind enough to leave tomatoes out and just add browned butter and parmesan. I tried it and thought it wonderful. I think they are somewhere in between a tapas restaurant and whatever you'd call one that isn't. I was very happy and might just order appetizers and small plates but my dinner companion wanted more choices under entrees.

    The location was perfect for alfresco dining at South Coast Plaza. My friends and I went for brunch and the food was equally enjoyable. Notable choices were pork adobo with fried rice, mussels stuffed with longanisa (Filipino style sausage) and cinnamon French toast which was thick, topped with marscapone cheese and not too sweet maple syrup, lardons and fresh blackberries. Service was attentive yet not too intrusive. This is a great place before, between or after shopping, or simply a dining destination.
