Need OC Champagne Brunch for Sunday
Hi. I am looking for a Sunday brunch place in Orange County for a small birthday gathering of approx. 8 people. The Hacienda is booked up and I don't think that I can handle the wait at Ramos House. Do you have any ideas? An all inclusive brunch would be great or just an a la carte brunch with a bottomless mimosa option would work well also. Food is the priority, but a nice atmosphere would be great as well. Any feedback would be great!
If you are seafood people, Rip Tide in Mission Viejo has a bottomless champagne brunch. They have breakfast items but the focus is on fresh seafood, crab legs and sushi. Not one of my personal favorites since I'm not a seafood person, but the people I want with easily ate their share of $29 per person in seafood.
If North OC is fine with you guys, I'd suggest Taps in Brea - $32/pp for buffet brunch and bottomless bubbly. Good seafood and standard breakfast fare.
The French75 in Newport Beach also does a decent brunch -- I think it's also around $30/person for 3-courses and a bottomless bubbly also (you may also order a la carte), but call & check.
The Harborside in the Pavilion in Newport Beach has a Champagne Buffet from 10-2 on Sundays $22.95 /person
Newport Landing just along the boardwalk also has a Sunday Buffet lunch . 10-2 $25.95 . I think they have champagne accompanying.

I have to strongly second the St. Regis. We took my Dad there for Father's Day, and it was a spectacular brunch. I think, I'm not sure, the restaurant is called Motif. The other retaurant is called Stonehill Tavern. I'm sorry I don't remember 100% which one it was, but I'm pretty sure it was Motif. Play it safe and call both. It was a few years ago when I went.
