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

Recently met a business colleague here for lunch and, while the food and service were still very good, the restaurant was excellent at one time. Maybe just a slightly off day. I owe it another chance but I wonder whether the loss of key people...More
