This place was great. But don't try to go there now -- it's closed. Let's see, I have to make this 100 words ... Try the Vaca restaurant across the street on Town Center. It's owned by the same people.

Charlie Palmers is no longer in business in Costa Mesa at South Coast Plaza. It was too expensive and not warm and inviting. The attached bar was often taken over by a quite young and not particularly friendly crowd.

Charlie Palmer's is truly one of the finest restaurants in Costa Mesa. Situated at the west end on the mall, there is ample parking available, and it is a short walk from there to Segerstrom for shows or concerts. Whether you go for lunch or for dinner, you will not be disappointed.

This is a great restaurant. I like their food and their service, but curiously enough I do like their take on burgers. It is a great place to have lunch when you are shopping.

Charlie Palmers has closed! And to be replaced with yet another hamburger place. How many can a city have? When it does open I'll give it a try and review it. The new place will be called Holstein.

Great lunch menu, food is always fresh and delicious. Great setting while we enjoyed a champagne before ordering. They always have a lovely salmon dish/special. Relaxing and enjoyable.

This place is beautiful, and you feel beautiful being here, even if you're shoving a pork taco in your face from their small plates menu (which, by the way, is fantastic, but just one? Le sigh). to be honest, I'm not sure if these are still on the menu as I can't find them online, but I'm sure their small... More

My wife and I had lunch at Charlie Palmer at Bloomingdales. The restaurant was not crowded. They have a 2 course lunch special for $20. The salad was excellent. I had Bolognese pasta and it was also excellent. My wife had the open faced steak sandwich which was also excellent. The service was very good. I would eat here again.... More

This restaurant operates under the name of DG Burger. It is located in a large shopping center in Costa Mesa, CA. Unusual in that you order at the cashier station, them you sit down and they bring the food to you when it is ready. The burger was fresh, hot and was very good. The next time I am in... More
