Located inside the Embassy Suites in Irvine, this is the lone restaurant in the hotel. While it’s styled as an Irish pub the place takes a “jack of all trades” approach to dining with a menu featuring Mexican, Italian, and American dishes to please the masses. I typically don’t like dining at places like this, but my late arrival and desire to not drive anywhere forced me here. The beef tacos were surprisingly good. The three street tacos were small in size but big in flavor. Add to that a crispy edged texture to the beef on top of delicate corn tortillas and it was a winner all around.

They’ve got a kids menu with lots of typical stuff. My kid opted for chicken tenders, which were the usual premade frozen variety found at any grocery store for a fraction of the cost.

Service was slow and spotty. We didn’t see our guy after he dropped off the food and we had to flag someone else down to get our check. I’d only recommend this place if you’re staying at the hotel and are too lazy to leave. Otherwise, get out and explore!
