Seafood | Irvine, South Orange County

Wonderful ambiance and value. There was a table full of raucous and ill mannered businessmen nearby. I guess that would be par for the area. We will definitely recommend and return here on our next trip to the OC. More

Seafood | Anaheim, North Orange County

Thank you to Traci T. for providing excellent service. We always enjoy our time at Roys' Anaheim, and she's one of the reasons why. We also appreciate the kind greeting we receive when we first walk in - and the manager who greeted us seated us in a great booth. Francisco also made sure our water glasses were regularly filled - thank you. My husband and I enjoyed the chicken spring rolls and caterpillar sushi rolls. I also enjoyed the poke bowl. We both thought the stuffed chicken breast was scrumptious - the meat was so tender. Yummy! The coconut black rice was also delicious. We're looking forward to returning. More

Seafood | Anaheim, North Orange County

Overall excellent. Atmosphere and ambiance was really nice. There were many tables that have dividers/curtains that provide a more quiet and intimate experience. We were seated in a nice quiet corner table . The menu had a number of terrific options and our food was excellent. We had reservations and were seated within a few minutes of arriving (we arrived 5 min prior to reservation time). Not our first time at a McCormick & Schmick's but the first time at this location. My only minor complaints would be our main courses arrived 5 min after soups/salads. Service "felt" a little slow at times and empty glasses and plates were not picked up in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend and will come back again. More

As always, we and our guest had a heavenly luncheon. The staff reserved my favorite table for me. Our waiter was attentive. The Sharing Nachos are perfect for three diners. I shared the yummy SF Mission Burrito. Our guest enjoyed the Whole Macrobiotic Bowl. The Hibiscus tea is soothing. More

Contemporary Indian | Irvine, South Orange County

This was by far the best meal we’ve had in all of Orange County!!! The food was amazing - flavors so developed like none we’ve eaten - and we have eaten many different places before. It’s a must! And the service was impeccable. It’s worth the time to visit - don’t be thrown off by its location in a strip mall... they’ve been there over 30 years. Take it from a foodie - don’t let this one miss your palate. Enjoy! More

Pascal is a highly skilled and experienced chef. His food is wonderful. The ambiance is relaxed and more casual than we found in the former restaurant, but I like. What's served is high quality and worth the $$$$. We very much enjoyed. More

The Hobbit4. The Hobbit

Contemporary French | Orange, North Orange County

The Hobbit has been around for a long time and they've undoubtedly been delivering a "unique dining experience" for a long time. As a first time customer, my impression was that the experience is getting stale. The staff stuck me as disinterested. The owner/head chef - who's role is ostensibly to work the pre-dinner room and show off the kitchen - was clearly not enjoying himself. Maybe everyone was having an off night, but when you do a single seating on a limited schedule, there's an expectation that the staff will bring their A-game. That said, the food was good, but they aren't breaking any new ground there. You're getting very good classic French fair. Overall, I came away feeling like the potential was there for a memorable and delightful night, but the vibe from the staff didn't measure up to the promise of the experience. Maybe time for a refresh? More

We want BJ's to be a place where the moment you leave is the moment you plan on coming back. We pride ourselves in our craft and attention to detail.
