Seafood | Anaheim, North Orange County

We were a party of eight, celebrating two birthdays. The food was excellent, as expected, but we choose this restaurant not only for its reputation but because it had a dedicated vegetarian mini-menu. The vegetarian dish was elegant, delicious, and a hearty portion. Service was fun, friendly and efficient, and we had an early dinner so it was still relatively quiet. Great place for a celebration. The only thing I wish it had was valet parking or equivalent parking option for our older members. The parking structure was a little too far of a walk for them. More

Roy's always provides excellent food with special to the table service - the selection of fresh fish is varied and appetizing - the service is a little over the top with frequent table visits - the noise level is uncomfortable and the tables need to be farther apart - More

Brewery | Tustin, North Orange County

Great and Quick on service. They don’t excessively check on you and don’t forget either. Drinks and food were very quick as well; didn’t really need much as everything was already given. Food was good even though what I wanted was already out but was recommended for something else still came out great. The veggies even had a lot of flavor even though to seem have a lot of butter and the garlic bread as well but can’t really complain. It’s a bit dark but didn’t mind it considering going on a date. It’s nice for a date or to have a few drinks. Wouldn’t mind to come back to try something else. More
