The food is topnotch and so is the service. Quiet, very conducive to conversation and a rest meal with friends. You can taste the freshness of the pasta. Highly recommended!

A must-visit restaurant. Old school fine dining in a very comfortable setting. Superb food. Great staff, management and ambience. The bar area has also a very cozy clubby feeling. Can't wait to go back.

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

There are many salad, meat, chicken and fish dishes that are gluten free so if you have Crliac disease I am sure they will accommodate your dietary needs. They are very customer oriented.
