Omakase by Gino 304 N Main St, Santa Ana Sushi • $$$$
304 N Main St, Santa Ana

“What a lovely chef, and an unbelievable meal. This was one of the best restaurant experiences I’ve had in my entire life. The service was attentive, the food thoughtful and inspired, the atmosphere comfortable and clean. On its own, the menu was incredible. Every single plate was well-described and beautifully prepared. I may never recover.And Gino… was LOVELY. I have met many chefs, and dined in fine-dining/Michelin-quality restaurants around the world. This was a superior experience. Gino was knowledgeable, kind, and friendly in a way that is truly rare. We would have come back for the food alone, but Gino made it a memory and an experience. He also personally (and kindly) chased us down to return my purse — the food was so good that I completely forgot it.Thank you — from a couple of new Canadian transplants who felt infinitely welcomed and well-fed.”

The service is very different from what they provide in the USA, if they clean your table between meals and offer you additional items. Highly recommended”

This 13 course diner show included the absolute best bread in town, duck, steak and ravioli amongst others, finished with three different desserts. Chef Justin told story with each course served, the wine was not just served, Trish gifted with love. So did the deserts, you can tell that Kyle had poured his heart and soul into the sweets.Be on time for your reservation and bring a hungry appetite. It is worth it.”

My husband got the OG Platter which came with two tacos, a quesadilla, and a mulita and he was happy with the portion size. I got the Birria Ramen and man was it full of meat. They normally put cheese but I didn't want that with my ramen. The broth is so good and not too oily like other places. I really enjoyed that the meat was not too fatty so you are getting good quality. We also got a churro with lechera and strawberry ice cream which was so good I forgot to take a picture. I enjoyed everything so much I can't wait to go back!”

“⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ I’ve got to admit, this has to be one of the freshest seafood places I have EVER tasted in Orange County. It’s a must for anyone that is looking for the best tasting and freshest seafood around. Every single time I’m here, the food has never let me down. Highly recommend but come ready to spend with inflation. The plates are full appropriately and the atmosphere is great if you’re looking for a good time. Don’t hesitate and come try them. Try the 7 mares and you WILL NOT be disappointed.”

“I haven't been to Black Angus for several years. Mainly because I'm a vegetarian. However I was meeting a client who did not know as a vegetarian and they wanted to go here. I was actually pleasantly to surprised to see that there was a couple options on the menu for me. The people that I were with were very happy with the food and the service was Top Notch. The place could use a little upgrade in upholstery, but overall even the atmosphere gave that feeling of that hometown ranchville.Vegetarian options: There's not a lot but there are definitely some options for us vegetarians so our meat eater family and friends can enjoy their meet and we can still eat with them.Wheelchair accessibility: This place is definitely wheelchair accessible from parking lot to table”

“After living in Santa Ana for so many years, I failed to try this place before I left. Oh what a mistake that was! My mom and I gave it a go today and it was one of the best experiences I have had in a Mexican restaurant out here. We had the Molcajete Los Arcos and it was spectacular! Hands down one of the best I've had. We used to drive to SD to have molcajetes in Old Town, but didn't know we could find some in our hometown. The waitress was awesome, the homemade tortillas were awesome, the amount of food in the molcajete was awesome, the salsa was out of this world, and the overall taste was amazing! Please, please, please give your taste buds a thrill and try this place! Will be back for sure!”

1526 S Flower St, Santa Ana

“Went here today, my girlfriend and I were very hungry and didn't know where else to go since we're not from around here. We stopped by and saw that they had pizza and tacos, so looked interesting! Their menu consists of pizza, tacos, torpedos, tortas, aguas frescas, pasta, milkshakes, all sorts of things. We settled for pizza and got the "combination" which is another word for supreme. They have different sizes, so we got Large and it was a lot more than I expected, I thought it was X-Large when they brought it over. The lady told me it would be 20 minutes, and it was ready on time, since they make and bake it from scratch and all.Combination has bell peppers, onions, olives, mushrooms, pepperoni and Italian sausage. The total came out to $21.85.I like how they take the pizza over to your table, I was not expecting that but Giovanni himself brought it over.Good experience! But the atmosphere was very hot, they have a fan on the ceiling but the restaurant felt like a sauna since they are cooking plenty of pizzas. The workers very nice and friendly and are on it. Definitely recommend to people who are having different cravings for different things!”

Mala dish was my favorite, the more I ate the more numbing my mouth got.The service was fine in the beginning but later the servers stopped coming over to check up on us.
