This was our first dining outing since the Corona virus shut down so we were excited to say the least. The service was prompt and very attentive. The food was excellent and perfectly prepared and we did not mind being seated in front of the bar.
The disappointment was that we we told the Open Table featured special happy hour pricing was a mistake and not honored. No compensation was offered. This was very disappointing and we will be leary of future Open Table offers.

Beware this restaurant is doing no social distancing. They had people crowded in like always. They removed no tables. Considering the bulk of their clientele is elderly, they should be sensitive. I won’t go back.

Rothschild’s is a beautiful restaurant with wood trimmed walls, old fashioned paintings on the wall, and a very old money kind of vibe. The service was first class and in an elegant tone. Our wine and dinners were fabulous! We tried the calamari steak and the Fettuccine Bolognese, which were both delicious!

owner and hostess gave my party of two a very warm welcome. spicy shrimp appetizer and my companion's beet salad were tasty and enjoyable. my veal dish was beautifully sauced and presented but the veal itself did not taste fresh to me. My son enjoyed his lobster ravioli and creme brûlée. service was very attentive.

Great Italian spot in CDM, the best I have experienced in Orange County (born and raised in the northeast so I am annoyingly picky). It was one of my last meals out prior to lockdown and am looking forward to going again, hopefully soon!

We were celebrating two Birthdays. The waiter was not overly friendly or attentive. The garlic bread was not it’s normally crispy garlic bread. The veal cutlets were thick and tough. they are not usually prepared that way...2 thick pieces. The salmon and scampi were good. The ice cream pie is always delicious.

The food is always wonderful. The service usually is too. This visit however was severely lacking in the service portion. Our server was scattered all over the place. She took my tea from me and never brought it back. She kept asking us if she took our order yet. Forgot which fish I ordered multiple times. Just not on par with the usual level of service we receive. We will be back. Maybe it was a bad day for her.

I know it was Valentine’s Day BUT No excuse for mediocre food and service at these high prices! We go out every year for Valentine’s Day and I have never had an experience this disappointing. For starters I had the Rothschild Caesar salad which I thought would be fantastic there but frankly I have had better Cesar salad out of salad bags I’ve gotten from Gelson’s. My wife had lobster bisque and we had to send it back. I had the halibut for a main course. It was merely OK and the sauce that went with it did nothing for it. Vegetables were overcooked and soggy. My wife had a pasta dish and it was very disappointing. Once our food was placed in front of us no one came to check on us.
The only reason I gave it two stars instead of one was the ambience. Is truly a lovely restaurant but I would never go back there again.

Ambiance was outstanding in the wine cellar. Service not ad good ad usual but,it was Valentine's day. Only thing really bothersome was a very LOUD women at the table next to us. As a matter of fact a gentleman at another table had to take his hearing aid out!

The restaurant didn't do a very good job of managing their time. We had a 6:15pm reservation and had to wait 50 minutes in a restaurant where there was no place to sit and standing was difficult because you were always in the way of people trying to get by. Then we got the WORST table in the restaurant right near the door and people were standing all around us when we tried to eat. The food was exceptional, the service was OK based on the chaos that existed and the Matre" De consistently gave us FALSE information when we were going to be seated. We will try the restaurant again under a different scenario.

We were in a corner table,which was fine. However, it was very tricky to get out because there was no room to get out once all the diners sat down and didn’t make a path for people to get around them.

I’ve been here many times. Tonight the service was horrible. Our server acted like she was doing us a favor by bringing our food and drinks. This has NEVER happened to me before (I’ve been to this restaurant over 20 times).

The food was also not as tasty as usual. It could have been a result of the poor service.

Food was good with the exception of the pork chop that was pounded down into a thin steak and then breaded. It was dry and there wasn’t enough chutney sauce to help with the dryness.

Ambiance was great and the other dishes ordered were delicious.

We were 5 people.

Four of us had salads and appetizers.

Three of us got out dinners and the other two got their food literally 10 minutes later.

The first three dinners that came out, had ice cold plates, which obviously made the food cold.

Our friends tried to wait so we would all eat at the same time, but it took so long that I told them to eat their food.


My friends told me that their food was Luke warm, so I touched their platters and realized that they were ice cold.

I told the server that if my friends were not with me, I would send all three plates back and that I want to make sure our plates are hot.

Our food was already delayed, but our friends were basically done with their food by the time we got ours.

Our plates were hot, but they were too hot. The food was literally boiling in them.

I had the Pistachio Pesto and cannot say that I was impressed.

The server tried to make it up to us by giving us free desserts, but that is not what we wanted. We wanted hot food and we wanted to eat at the same time. Getting free dessert does not make up for it.

I am shocked that a restaurant of such caliber would serve their food on cold plates.

We are not going back to this place. Very disappointing.
