Fancy Dining in the OC Nov 10, 2008
Ate here for an anniversary dinner with Lisa! The restaurant is located on the top floor of South Coast Plaza, a fancy shopping mall in the OC.

The ambiance was a bit mixed. We were seated outside in a pleasant little patio area. Unfortunately, there was also a speaker playing atmospheric/new-wave/contemporary music right next to the corner where our table was. I'm not sure if this was supposed to help set the mood, but I think I would have preferred if there was no music at all, as it seemed a little bit tacky.

The food was good, but in my humble opinion not amazing. For my appetizer, I had the "Marche Composee" -- a hearty salad which was pretty tasty, but a bit heavy. For my main course I had a Mediterranean fish called "Rouget", which was highly recommended by the waiter. To be honest, I didn't like this dish that much, and it tasted like fish I could have gotten for half the price. Actually, my favorite part of the meal was probably the bread - warm, soft on the inside, and perfectly crusty!

Service, like the food, was good but not amazing.

Overall, good, but I think my expectations were a little bit higher so it ended up being slightly disappointing!
