We've been coming here for many years with excellent results. Apparently there is a new chef as the food is not as nearly as good as it used to be. Service is still pretty good, but not great. We had to pay $5 for a...More

I rushed to get to the theater at 6 only to learn that the show was at 8. So, someone suggested I go to the "cafe". Located right next to Segerstrom Theater, it is a lovely restaurant, light and airy decor, spaciously placed tables, excellent...More

Perfect location for a pre-theater dinner or drink. The restaurant has huge windows that overlook the courtyard of Segerstrom Performing Arts Center so it's nice to watch the hustle and bustle of people. Leatherby's is white linen dining but it fits the area well. For...More

Great dining experience. Food is excellent and service was friendly and attentive. If going to the theatre or a concert try to get there early as it does fill up. Modern atmosphere and good wine list. Will definitely go back. You need reservations.

We've enjoyed both lunch and dinner at this restaurant. It's located on the Segerstrom Hall site so very convenient if you're attending an event there. They validate for $10 off the $20 Valet Parking charge. Best of all, the food is excellent and the service...More

Beautiful location with excellent service. The booths feel very private. The vegetarian meal I had was good, not excellent. The person I was with had seafood and said it was excellent.

Lousy service, food and attitude. When Water Grill opens, they will pay the price of their convenient location. There are still enough decent restaurants near by. Skip this!
