A CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION

As one of Orange County’s best restaurants for special occasions, we’re honored when birthdays, anniversaries or any of life’s celebrations are shared around one of our tables. Especially now, with our richly remodeled Irvine steak house ready to welcome you.

Modern elegance with a pioneer’s spirit.
Irvine may be in the heart of Orange County, but that heart still pulses with a pioneer’s spirit – something our founder, Ruth Fertel, knew all about. Where tech and industrial pioneers now flourish, local artwork pays tribute to Irvine’s early role in ranching and zeppelin aviation.

Today, a more open floor plan, a stunning sculptural crystal chandelier over the atrium,
vibrant pops of color and lively bar come together to create a refreshingly modern
take on the traditional steak house experience.

All with that signature sizzle.
While our world-class USDA Prime steaks, bone-in cuts and their signature sizzle helped us earn recognition's including the Best Steak House in Orange County, you’ll also find our chef’s three-course seasonal menu, fresh seafood, scratch-made sides and decadent desserts, along with handcrafted cocktails and award-winning wines.
