Need suggestions for birthday dinner in OC area.

We are taking our friend out for birthday dinner in Orange County. What would be a good place to go to? She likes French or Japanese cuisine.

  1. Honda Ya in Tustin for Japanese. Gemmell's in Dana Point for French. Enjoy!

    1. I second Honda Ya and add Shin Sen Gumi in Fountain Valley.

      1. Honda Ya with the disclaimer that you dont bother with the sushi. French 75 and Chat Noir and both good french bistro type food.

        1. Honda Ya is terrible. Poor Fish Quality and Greasy Tempura. Kar won't even set foot in the place after the last disaster.
          Kappo Sui(SA Heights) is far superior for Higher End Japanese Dining.
          For French Dining in OC , Ambrosia, Pinot Provence, and a big favorite BASILIC.
