Anniversary Dinner in Irvine or Surrounding Area??

My husband and I are celebrating our 6th anniversary this Thursay. Need a restaurant recommendation close to Irvine or near the 5 freeway. We love sushi and seafood in general. Would prefer a more romantic restaurant but will sacrifice romance for awesome food. Was thinking about Bluefin but it's a little far for us but is it worth the trek (we have a little baby at home and can't be gone too long)? TIA!

    If Tustin isn't too far, I'd recommend the Black Sheep Bistro.

    Black Sheep Bistro
    303 El Camino Real, Tustin, CA 92780

      Marche Moderne in South Coast Plaza is typically excellent. The patio outside is very nice.

      Below are some of my favorites:

      Italian--Antonello or Villa Nova
      Seafood--Fish Company in Los Alamitos or Walt's Wharf in Seal Beach
      Steak--Flemings or Mastros or Mortons
      Persian--Caspian or Darya

      Fine Dining--The Hobbit or Five Crowns. Some of the restaurants listed above could fit the category of fine dining.


      PS--Try Fukada [near the Spectrum] for lunch, its amazing and always full, they are closed on Monday.
