Irvine -- what's open after 10 pm?

I'm meeting my boyfriend for dinner in Irvine tonight, and we always run into trouble there because I can't get there until 8 or 8:30, and our leisurely relaxed dinners seem to get cut short when every restaurant we go to kicks us out at 10:00! Are there any places with a nice relaxed atmosphere where we can enjoy dinner and a drink a little bit later into the evening? Thanks!

  1. Honda Ya in Tustin is open until 2 am. Relaxed, great food, cold drinks.

    Here's a report with pics if you're interested.

    1. Neat Irvine in Costa Mesa is my favorite late night joynt, Oki Doki!


      1. Have you tryed Taleo for nice Mexican;Bistango.or Lucca?Not sure what the hours are,but they might do the trick

        1. Second for Oki Doki. I think they stop serving at 12 or 1.

          1. If you want a nice meal, I know Chat Noir in Costa Mesa is open until 11:30 if you want French or wine and appetizers at the bar. French 75 is in Irvine and owned by the same company and is open until at least 11. For seafood, I'm pretty sure Oysters on pch in Newport is open late. In fact, quite a few of the restaurant in Newport on PCH are open late. The Yard House in Irvine is also open late.
