Super convenient located right across the street from Segerstrom Center for the Arts. Fabulous service. Exceptional food and wine. Perfect for a meal before seeing a performance!
I was extremely disappointed with the food. Honestly it was rly gross. I’m not a picky eater at all but it was just bad. I got the mushroom flatbread and it tasted like bowling alley pizza. We also got salads that were very bad. I saw this restaurant on a best food in OC list and after, I was genuinely confused.
We waited almost half an hour for our food (mostly salads) to be served and this was with only 3-4 other tables seated. The food was very good and the staff friendly. On the fence about recommending them if this pace of the kitchen is the norm.
Our server was extremely nice, so this review is not negative on his part.
This “restaurant” is a glorified hotel lobby bar. The food is extremely overpriced, the ambiance is awkward and quiet and the photos shown online mainly show the patio which is actually small.
The “flat bread” had to be frozen because it had zero taste, but the worst was the pasta. I sent it back because it was undercooked (to the point of being crunchy (not al dente) and while the server was happy to take it back the manager came by afterwords to let me know “that’s how they serve it” and that the chef was shocked I sent it back. To top it off, she even told me SHE personally tasted it and thought it was fine.
Oh and you will pay at least $5 for parking even if you get validation + a bill of $120 if you order two meals and two cocktails. Not worth it.
It was our first brunch out in a very long time. Seated quickly✅ felt welcomed by our server ✅ CoVid protocols in place for employees✅ ambiance was fresh air overlooking a lake ✅food was good but the waffles should come with more berries and cream- the Cali Benedict was so fresh I should have order two whole servings. The other really good thing is that they juice was fresh squeezed and the mimosas flowed easily ✅ overall this is a good spot and a hidden gem as it’s tucked away with the. Portofino hotel property. We will try this spot again
The ambience was great. Very classy, comfortable and great energy. I'll definitely be back for more great food, drinks and a memorable experience.
Our waiter David was the best ever, very accommodating when we wanted to switch tables. Food was promptly served.
We had a beautiful view of the pond and it was super nice. Only wish they had heaters down on that level. They did give us blankets though!
outdoor dinning available, great customer service.
Best Cobb salad ever. I ordered it with their balsamic vinegrette, ate every bite and wanted to lick the plate (but didn’t). Good coffee. Service was a little slow, but we were not in a hurry, so it didn’t detract much from our experience. Parking is validated, and that’s a big plus.
Lunch was amazing! The food was so fresh. You can tell the chef puts so much love into what he makes. The wine list is exceptional as are the craft cocktails! The patio is so beautiful and relaxing. It's such a hidden gem!
Great service, and food was delicious!
Nice atmosphere and the server was great.
Even though Covid has made things a little different, the service and food was incredible as always.
Good customer service
No long wait to get food
very nice , the food is good and the ambience is really delightful.
Everything was so good, from the beginning to the end . Very friendly services and the food was the best. My husband really surprised me! (It was a late anniversary celebration 🍾). 😍🥰❤️
The bacon dates are a must have as well as the fig fashioned. Mitch is a great server so 🤞🏻 you get him. Both the salmon and the halibut were amazing. We will be back.
Great service. Short dining experience as we just stopped there for drinks. Will try again.
Love the staff. Fabulous outdoor seating!! Great food!!!
Perfect place for a nice outdoor lunch with friends.
To start off they had no bread. A very limited menu. Had reservations but all tables were taken next to heaters.Service was very slow.
Very good. Very cool place great vibe. Had a table of rowdy folks that we're probably over beveraged, but they left shortly after I arrived with my guest.
Very convenient when you're staying at the hotel. The menu is limited, but the food is solid. The service was relaxed but still very professional. I dined there twice: once by myself and once with a guest. James was my server both nights and made my/our experience really pleasant (even when we stayed past closing time - sorry!)
Morning coffee is surprisingly good, too!
We had made reservations for a special birthday brunch and even chose to stay at the hotel. Once we were seated we learned brunch had been canceled. Our whole trip was planned around this and felt this should have been stated more clearly on the website. It really put a damoer on our staycation we had planned.
Their website is not current and they no longer serve bottomless mimosas and bloody Mary’s. That was only reason for choosing this place. The food was not good my turkey burger was plain and gross. I took one bite and did not eat it. The manager removed from Bill. My friend had a seared ahi salad and it was small ahi portion and the dressing was awful. I had two mimosas but only paid for 1 after manager took 1 off Bill and we were made aware they weren’t bottomless. I ordered a cocktail with sparkling wine and Chanmbord liquor and that was really good. So I hade two mimosas one cocktail and shared side of fries with my friend. The bill was $63 and we left $13 tip. So spent $79 on fries, cocktail and friend had her salad with 3 mimosas. Not happy with the value or overall experience.
Great food with excellent service! Outdoor patio is wonderful!!
Lovely setting. Could not deliver on their reservations or food. 10-15 minutes to get seated. 30 minutes for food to arrive. I had a meeting to attend, so they gave it to me to go. Cappuccino, they ran out of whole milk, so they used a mix of cream, much too heavy for cappucino. How can they run out of whole milk during a holiday weekend? Lovely views and outdoor seating area. So disappointed. Had to eat my food cold, after my meeting. :(
Great value for money! Food came out hot & was very good. Servers were attentive but not intrusive.
Hard pass. Don’t even bother
Fabulous evening. Friends came into town & happened to be staying at the Avenue of the Stars hotel where the restaurant is. We sat on patio. Service, atmosphere & food was spectacular. Cheers
It was quite lovely! Nice view and quiet outside.
Everything was great! Even with the social distancing and patio dining we had a great time.
We had heard good things about this restaurant. However, they were not ready to re-open. They should have waited until they were. Their menu on the website read that they were serving Chilean Sea Bass, Lamb, etc. They had a limited menu that did not include their main dishes. They didn't have a dessert chef either. I will say that their bacon wrapped dates were very yummy and so was the Fig Fashion. I think the experience would have been better had they waited and prepared before re-opening. I'm not sure we'll come back with so many good restaurants out there.
Great except for the Covid restrictions. Oh and the limited menu. Not restaurant’s fault. Still a good experience.
We came here for brunch since it received 4-star + reviews. Disappointed. Food was mediocre at best and service was slow.
Great food. The service was excellent...would definitely go there again! Quite a find near the preforming Arts Center.
Terrible service. When food finally did arrive, it was cold. Since manager did adjust bill for poor service, and food quality, we will visit the restaurant again.
First time visit
It was delightful terrific
Brunch Mimosas were good. I think their brunch menu needs some help but overall what I ordered was good. I did ask them to remove some items and add something else. The place was pretty empty when we showed up so it was quiet during out 2 hours there.
