Irvine recommendation sought

A group of friends and I will be going to Irvine tomorrow night, to see Aurelia's Oratorio at the Barclay Theater.

We are hoping to have a leisurely, though not overly expensive dinner, before the show. Can somebody recommend a:
low to medium price
vegetarian friendly
restaurant in which a group can eat and drink wine for 90 minutes to 2 hours.

  1. Britta's across the street fits every req... except it is most definitely mid-priced & not on the low end.

    1. The one and only time my wife and I went to Brittas, my wife found torn plastic from a bag in her salad. The chef apologized, but the restaurant didn't even offer to comp the salad! However, in that same center is a place called Veggie Grill. Delicious I-can't-believe-it's-not-meat salads and sandwiches. They also serve delectable sweet potato fries. Regretably, no alcohol.

        I really like Veggie Grill's sandwiches. The portobello sandwich with quinoa salad on the side were very good. The salad had a vegan dressing that was sooo good.
