I came here after hearing good things from some friends and seeing the buzz online and I came with some huge expectations... all of them were met. This place is great, its inside a hotel but that would be the only downside. Everything else about this place is amazing, every item on the menu I tried was tasty (my favorite being the goat cheese jalapeño bites) and they had an amazing selection of wines. I was pleasantly surprised by this place and will definitely come back if I am in the area. P.S if you dont like goat cheese go for the truffle mac and cheese you wont be disappointed.

We took some friends from England to Pinot Provence before a performance at the Orange County Performing Arts Center. The restaurant makes this easy by letting you keep your car in their lot; you can pick it up after the show and they don't charge an arm and a leg. The restaurant also doesn't charge for corkage, something I find very attractive since wine prices, even here, are absurdly high. The service was decent if not great and the food was excellent; we chose the $40 per person 3-course prix fix after a round of cocktails. My only problem with the evening came in my short-rib entree--literally, a piece of wire which I found myself chewing on. I am most glad I didn't swallow it. I pointed this out to the waiter who took the object to the manager, who eventually came to our table to apologize a half hour later. I didn't make a fuss or demand anything from him. I just wanted him to be aware of the situation. I asked him how he thought the wire got into my food, and he said something about the cleaning brushes they use, which didn't exactly stimulate my appetite. He told us that he was going to comp us on the cocktails which, since they are expensive there, I thought was an appropriate gesture. But when the bill came, he had only comped MY drink, which I thought was embarrassing--for him. Why bother? I don't approve of people who try to extort free meals from restaurants over the slightest infractions; in fact, I've never done it, and I wasn't trying to do it in this case, but the manager's tepid response in this time shocked even me. I would give the food quality here four stars but the manager's response a one.

so close to chat noir, but miles apart in terms of quality and a genuine bistro feel

My husband had called and asked for a nice, romantic table. We were seated in the main dining room next to a black partition wall, in bench type seating. We tried to move the table out a bit so I could move. It was definitely not what he had requested. After a few minutes we asked and were moved to a very nice small table in front of the fireplace in a small adjoining room. This room had rather bright lighting in the hutch on the far wall, and plates nailed on the wall for ambiance. Extremely stark! The food was very good, but the waiter never cracked a smile. He was extremely arrogant and pompous in his demeanor. Our dinner tab including tip was $160, which for us was a big dinner outing. No, I would not elect to spend an evening there again. I expected a much more pleasant dining experience.
