We had dinner for 3 couples. The food and service were excellent. The staff was very knowledgeable about all the food in the menu and had several suggestions. We had a wonderful round table and it was not noisy.

Food was excellent. Service very good. A little pricey. Fairly extensive wine list. We were a large group of friends. The night went very smooth for a large group. Everyone enjoyed the food and service. Will go back for sure.

This is not far from the Santa Ana Civic Center which has the Orange County and Santa Ana government offices. Many government leaders go here for lunch and dinner, especially with lobbyists. Décor, service and food are outstanding

We had not dined here for a few years and decided to have dinner on New Year's Eve. First, they had their regular menu and prices and that was refreshing. Our waiter was very fun and helpful. The food was excellent, especially the lobster ravioli...More
