    This is a personal favorite of mine! The ambiance, the view, the service all are way above the usual. My pork chop was like butter it was so melt-in-my-mouth! The appetizers were scrumptious, and the desserts were wonderful! The wine list is not huge but the white that my friend order tasted “like an angels kiss”!

    Simply our favorite restaurant experience in Orange County! If you want a great meal at an intimate location this is the place. We started our meal with Pork Belly and Artichoke salad which your both amazing. For our main course we had the Alaskan Halibut and the poached lobster special. The Halibut was light and flavorful and the risotto was delicious. The lobster was sweet and buttery and the perfect texture. Finally our server Tiffany was simply world class. She was pleasant and personal and provided excellent recommendations. We never had to ask for a refill of our drinks and everything was cleared promptly. Just an awesome evening!

    I love(d) this restaurant. But their prices increases are untenable. And frankly the quality of the food--although still good--is not what it used to be. A three-bite Hamachi appetizer is $27 and a filet is $80. They also have the highest corkage fee of any restaurant I've ever been to: $75. I understand they want to sell their wines, and they have a great wine list, but it's the principle. This was our go-to special occasion restaurant for many years. Unfortunately, we'll have to find another. That being said, I would still recommend trying it if you're willing to pay the prices.
