    85°C Bakery & Cafe

    2700 Alton Pkwy Ste 123, Irvine, CA 92606
    42 reviews

    Yay for brick toasts! Not so yay for the long wait. Apparently a lot of people come to bakeries late at night. I wasn't too hungry so my friends and I all decided to share the maple brick toast. Mm...crunchy, sweet, delicious, goodness. Aside from the long wait, I guess it was pretty decent, but I think this is one ...

    Brodard Restaurant

    9892 Westminster Ave, Garden Grove, CA 92844
    32 reviews

    The most memorable item here was the pork spring roll. I'm not bitter about the wait because I went on a weekday late lunch so there was no crowd at all. Had I had to wait 1 hour or so, would I feel the same? Maybe not. Anyways, the pork spring rolls have a huge chunk of meat inside. The ...

    I've walked by here many times over the years and am amazed how this space has been transformed into a warm, sophisticated, and romantic wine bar. They have a nice selection of small bites. The bleu cheese potato gratin is a perfect for sharing. If they have the Shishito peppers on the menu, get them. Spicy, simple, and absolutely delicious. ...

    On the first night of the trip it was just the guys and I led my friends to Beretta located in the Mission. For people not that familiar with the Mission area, at night the area can seems a little dodgy. My friends were a little hesitant about my choice as we walked from the Bart station to the bar/restaurant, ...

    Flour + Water

    2401 Harrison St, San Francisco, CA 94110
    26 reviews

    Flour & Water is just consistently delicious Italian food. Their calamari and sardines are top of the line. I love that the menu is different every time I walk through the door yet I never have to worry that it won't be up to par. Each time is always better than I remember.

    I went here on the recommendation of another Gogobot member, and boy am I glad we went! I got a same day reservation, which seems to be doable on weeknights -- although it was totally packed. They were having a Patio Picnic on their back patio where they were doing a pig roast with sides & dessert -- I hope ...

    AMAZING boston clam chowder!!! Just the perfect amount of clams to cream ratio! The creamy broth is actually really fragrant if that's actually a word you'd use to describe clam chowder, haha! You can even buy a container of clam chowder to go! I'd recommend buying at least a couple because it's THAT good!

    Mission Chinese Food

    2234 Mission St., San Francisco, CA 94110
    20 reviews

    Got a tip to order delivery because the line can be brutal. Good tip! Rich, salty, spicy! Not traditional Chinese but awesome. Cumin lamb was very good. I loved the king pao pastrami. Bacon with noodles also great. The cod fried rice was good but not much cod in it. There was more ham flavor to it. Lives up to ...

    Gourmet waffle sandwiches is what they do, and they do it well. Sweet or savory, you're in for a treat here. Go with a couple of friends and share a few to get the best experience!

    701 Lighthouse Ave, Pacific Grove, CA 93950
    15 reviews

    Sustainable seafood, creative presentations, chewy sourdough bread and a wine list -- wait for it -- priced practically at retail! This is our favorite restaurant in the Monterey Bay area, and we're pretty picky foodies. It's a locals' kinds of place, and the value-for-price ratio is super-high. The chef is super-conscious about following the Monterey Bay Seafood Watch list guidelines, ...

    544 Emerson Street, Palo Alto, CA
    17 reviews

    This restaurant is great. The main reason is because is open until midnight, a couple of hours more than the rest in the area. The atmosphere and the decoration is really nice. At the 1st floor looks more like a pub, but at the 2nd you have tables. The food was really tasty, and the attention perfect.

    The Butler & the Chef Bistro

    155 S Park St, San Francisco, CA 94107

    Don't let the chef scare you -- he's a very passionate French man who isn't afraid to speak his mind and tell you like it is! Don't even think about bringing in plastic bottled anything -- the sight of it will get him all huffy. He takes his green practices very seriously. And don't be rude by waiting for all ...

    Got the Croque Monsieur. It was just okay, nothing memorable about. Same thing can be said for their bread and fries. I like the French bistro decor.

    The Loft at Montage Laguna Beach

    12 reviews

    Absolutely amazing food, ambiance and service! Ask for a table outside - you get a wonderful view of the ocean! I've been here twice for lunch, and while it's pricey ($20+ sandwiches, salads and entrees) it is so worth it. The little complimentary cheese rolls that come in the bread basket is so delicious that people often ask for another ...

    Tasty Garden

    The most fanciest HK style cafe I've ever been to. Already a big fan of Tasty garden, but with the trendy interior and plating...its definitely my restaurant of choice at the moment! Its always busy during dinner time, and even though theres ton of parking down stairs...Its not easy to find during dinner time. I usually just park on the ...
