Choose the attractive, fire-pit patio for the best ambience at Irvine’s retooled business hotel restaurant. The kitchen offers global-accented California cuisine starring simple and satisfying dishes such as fried-chicken oysters, house-cured pickle boards, chimichurri beef salad, and miso cod on a bed of black rice. Happy hour is hours long, with deep discounts on snacks, craft beers, and cocktails. Kids eat dinner free on Tuesdays. Note: Star rating reflects a former chef.
