Contemporary French | Orange, North Orange County

Food was really good. Some of the other guests did not have the best table manners, some double dipping on the apps that are shared. Noise was a bit high given the formal atmosphere. Website indicates some walking around outside option which was the sidewalk of a busy street. More

Pascal2. Pascal

$$$$
French | San Juan Capistrano, South Orange County

Pascal is our favorite restaurant for special occasions - birthdays, anniversary, Valentine's Day, etc. - and it's our favorite destination for dining with special, or out-of-town guests. It's so hard to find a quiet, romantic, small venue restaurant these days where you can hold a conversation without the nuisance of the "High-Vibe" scene that the "see and be seen" crowd seems to thrive on. JB is a great waiter (The only waiter) and he was pretty taxed on our recent Valentine's special dinner because of the 100% occupancy and the special multi-course meal. If you go on a routine, non-featured night (like Valentine's Day), you will be more than pleased with JB as we have always been. More

Contemporary American | Fullerton, North Orange County

Chef Cody Storts has worked with 30 restaurant concepts in Southern California and Texas. Focused on using the best ingredients and classic techniques in a fun and approachable way, Cody creates cuisine that plays on the entire palate, and for which there are few comparisons. The Fullerton native moved to Texas as a child before finding his way back to Orange County in later years. He had a background in theater and front-of-house restaurant experience when he enrolled in Le Cordon Bleu in Pasadena in 2004. That same year he went to culinary school he underwent gastric bypass surgery, putting him in a unique position—he needed to taste the food, but no longer had the room in his stomach to eat full plates or large tastings. This quandary shaped his theory on food—to pack as many flavors into one bite as possible.More

Discover Orange County

Located in the sunny state of California, Orange County is known for its many tourist attractions. Considering that Orange County consists of 34 cities and is more populous than 21 U.S. states, you can bet the attractions include not only the best surfing beaches, the Balboa ferry, and sites like Knott’s Berry Farm and Disneyland but also a huge selection of restaurants. The warm climate enhances the growth of fresh, organic vegetables and fruits, which can be found in many restaurants. Although iconic California foods like Rocky Road ice cream and sourdough bread may have originated in other CA cities, they’re also popular in Orange County. Fast food places, drive-ins, and Korean barbecues are popular in this area, too. Smoothies in the summer, however, take the cake.
