    Their seasonal ingredients guarantee you a delicious meal. Think modern American, yum!

    Every dish I tasted here was phenomenal! Bite size to perfection where you'll feel every texture and flavor, go for the tasting if you can! Don't worry about the portion because by the end, your tummy will feel nice and full!!!

    I will not go into my dishes's details since it changes all the time. All I have to say is that I recommend to upgrade whenever possible! Wagyu = YES! Truffle shaving = YES! It'll be worth the $5, $10.

    Overall, come here before any performance or any special occasion. You can dress casual to formal without feeling out of place...your choice! Plus, its the perfect place when you want to impress your date.

    Service: Top notch where the chef comes out and personally greets you, yay!

    A+ service, A+ food, A+ decor = 5 stars!

    If attending a show at the Orange County Performing Arts Center, Leatherby's Cafe Rouge is an absolute must to round out a classy evening. However, the show is certainly not necessary, as Leatherby's is a hidden gem that is more than worth a trip out of your way to enjoy some of the finest dining available in Orange County.

    Although every experience I've had at Leatherby's has already seemed quite flawless, Executive Chef Ross Pangilinan is constantly creating new dishes, creatively experimenting with the finest ingredients, and offering mouth watering, limited-time prix fixe menus that are not to be missed. Everything I've tasted here has been something to rave about, and always beautifully plated (if you're fortunate enough, on top of something like the chorizo risotto with shaved truffles, or foie gras mashed potatoes!).

    TIP: Check out the website for the latest prix fixe offerings. As of this writing, there is a 3 course currently available for just over $40. An exceptional deal!

    Although the fancy level is high, the pretentiousness level is surprisingly low. Upscale-casual attire (and above) will allow you to comfortably blend in with this crowd.

    The service is nothing short of stellar too. The wait staff is extremely polite, knowledgeable, and attentive.

    On top of everything else: NO CORKAGE FEE!

    If you haven't made your way in to Leatherby's Cafe Rouge yet, you're missing out!
