Anniversary Dinner in Irvine or Surrounding Area??

annabananaoc Jul 1, 2008 10:05 AM

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!

    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.

      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.
