"Dinner at Broadway is a unique and ever changing experience - the only constant being outstanding food and service. Tonight was no exception. I asked my always knowledgable server, Jan, to select three courses with wine parings. In a restaurant like Broadway, the staff have the experience and discretion to really steer diners toward the best and most seasonal items on the menu. The dinner started with a refreshing chilled English pea soup accented by a rich crab fritter. Next, the crispy Beelers Pork Belly was rich and decadent with accents from a sweet miso caramel, and a nice texture from the smoked heirloom carrots and crispy sugar snap peas. The main course was a rabbit done three ways - sous vide loin wrapped in prosciutto, braised leg re-formed with a swiss chard gratin, and a leg confit with a rabbit jus and parsley root puree. It featured seasonal fiddlehead ferns and rich morel mushrooms, which trumpeted the feeling of spring! This is a short term seasonal dish - and you should go there NOW before this amazing dish goes off the menu! Dessert was a delicious chocolate waffle with ice cream, beautifully presented. One of my marks of a truly great restaurant is leaving completely satisfied, while already thinking of my next meal there. Broadway consistently delivers both, in a warm and inviting family atmosphere."

"i was very impressed with both the food and service at broadway. we were lucky to be seated at the chef's table where all the action is. i recommend the brussles sprouts, pork belly & steak. all were cooked to perfection. the manager stopped by several times to make sure all was going well, and our glasses were never empty.
thank you!

"Broadway by Amar Santana is worth all the great reviews and comments. It is clearly among the best, if not the best, restaurants in Orange County. We went there for a special occasion and were greeted promptly, enjoyed a few moments at the bar with extraordinary creative cocktails, and then were seated at the Chef's counter because of them knowing of our special occasion. It ended up being a Top 10 lifetime dining experience for us. Watching the food being prepared was the highlight - that is, until it arrived, when the taste exceeded the show! The pork belly and the heirloom beet appetizers were delicious bites. We had the fresh alaskan halibut and the lamb tenderloin, both of which were cooked perfectly. The lamb was even enjoyed very much by one of our party who normally flat-out rejects lamb because of its stronger flavor - not this loin. The panna cotta dessert was to die for - refreshing and perfect - not too sweet, just right. The wine service was outstanding, and each of the many people who shared in providing service were friendly, timely and excellent. The Chef himself came and spent a few minutes with us congratulating us on the special occasion and talking about his "baby" the restaurant. Clearly the care put into everything from the ambiance, the wine list, the food preparation and the service is all part of his team's commitment to excellence. While a little expensive for a weekly indulgence - the cost is worth it for such an excellent meal and dining experience. We'll be back!"

"The entire experience was wonderful, from our interaction with the bartender and selections of cocktails, to the description of the menu courses, and each of the delectable dishes. We're already looking forward to our next visit and congratulate and thank Chef Amar for a job well done."

"Everything about The Broadway is great. We love the changes in the menu plus keeping our faves. We are locals and this is without a doubt the BEST restaurant in Orange county!"

"2nd visit to this restaurant. The first visit was remembered as a great food experience, but on this 2nd visit the food was pretty average. I had the roasted chicken breast and it was strangely spiced, not too hot or spicy, but leading to a weird taste.
We ordered also a serve of brocolini and they were again so overwhemlingly spiced with garlic, that we left most uneaten. Such a pity if you could have just fresh food.

"The only reason we didn't give the restaurant the full five stars is that my pork chop was a little overcooked and dry. They did offer without hesitation to re-fire it, so that was good. Everything else was exceptionally good."

"Came here on a Monday night to celebrate our anniversary. Greeted by friendly staff upon our arrival and had friendly and attentive service the entire time! We sat at the Chef's counter and Vince (Amar's brother) was our friendly server that suggested some of the signature dishes. Had the Octopus appetizer (Very tender!!) ...the best we've had! And, we are foodies that dine frequently at high end restaurants . I had the branzino .....it was delicious and cooked to perfection! They also had a Monday night pre-fixe dinner at a good price, however, we decided to order from the regular menu. Tony the GM knew it was our first visit and took the time to introduce himself to us and asked if everything was OK! Very thoughtful and classy! Sure wish Broadway was a bit closer to where we live.....we would go often but will be back soon!!"

"Absolutely INCREDIBLE food served in an amazing ambiance with some of the most attentive staff I've ever encountered. My husband and I ate here on a Thursday to celebrate life (why not?) and the place was packed even for a weekday night. We were fortunate enough to be seated at the 'chef's table' where we had front row seats to watch Omar and his chefs in action! Highly recommend asking for these seats when you visit, it wasn't too loud that we couldn't hear each other but rather was a really nice blend of intimate + entertaining seating. Their drinks were incredible and the food was delicious - such a nice mix of options including highly decadent choices (Raviolo) and lighter just as flavorful ones (Sashimi). Definitely save room for dessert - the Chocolate Praline Crunch was out of this world. We can't wait to go back!"

"Our server was a dream come true. She was educated on the menu and offered me so many gluten free options. The restaurant is energetic and fun, with a nice range of clientele. Food was really tasty. I had the Escargot (without bread crumbs), Rabbit, and Panacotta. Would definitely eat there again. Even better, we got to meet Amar Santana personally. He was on the floor expediting food, which was really classy in my opinion."

"We dined on a Monday to sample the 3 course prix fixe menu, a good value for $39. Every staff member was friendly and professional and was clearly invested in us having a pleasant dining experience, which we did despite the fact that our chosen entree was not available at the last minute. We were given the choice of any entree on the menu, a fine offer. The stuffed calamari first course and signature skirt steak were delicious, as was the branzino and the mini cannoli for dessert. We will definitely return."
