Capital Seafood - Irvine Spectrum

PLEASE CALL IN FOR LUNCH RESERVATIONS
Welcome to Capital's newest restaurant concept. Located in the heart of Orange County inside Irvine Spectrum. With much success in its other location in the Diamond Jamboree center, Capital decided to launch another location in the O.C. Capital is most known for its award winning dim sum and fresh seafood selections. With over 100 dim sum selections to choose from daily and great fresh seafood offerings. Dim Sum favorites such as Sui Mai, Shrimp Har Gow and Baked B.B.Q. Buns are customer favorites to name a few. Live Seafood offerings from our 300 gallon tanks consist of Alaskan King Crab, Maine Lobsters, Dungeness Crab and Catch of the Day. This new concept offers a full bar with an outdoor patio dining experience. Reservations are suggested and offsite catering and private dining are available.

"Location is awesome! Eat and shop afterwards or vice versa. The food is ok everything just seems super salty. Food is definitely overloaded with MSG so if you have sensitivity towards MSG I would suggest to avoid this place. The good thing about this place is its not overly greasy like usual Chinese food."

"Been here on many occasions, mostly for dim sum. But the dinner we had to celebrate our Fathers 80th birthday was very disappointing. Everybody thought the food and service was terrible. Capital Seafood lost its way. Unfortunately I will not waste my time and money and not return anymore.."

"Everything was great, until the place got a bit of a rush and at least four tables (in the same area) were left unattended for 40 mins. Meanwhile a large engagement party was constantly being attended. The house manager had to check us out, never saw our waiter again. Food was great, portions were large, saki was on-point."

"It was Chinese new year and the place was packed. The service was a bit slow but good for the circumstances. The special new year menu was excellent. 90% of the patrons were Chinese which is something I love to see in a Chinese restaurant. I really enjoyed sharing this holiday with them and watching all the families together. I plan on going every year from now on."

"We had two appetizers, one noodle dish, one main dish and all were not only tasteless but also heavy and gluey. The noodles were inedible, a barely warm clump of food. The dim sum platter was also heavy and doughy, without much filling. We had heard good reports but would never return."

"Always love the dim sum. Not having to wait with reservation through Open Table is a plus. Mentioned it to our friends and they are sold as well."

"We eat at this restaurant every time we visit Irvine. The staff is extremely courteous and efficient. The food comes out hot and fast and its very very good. I recommend the Peking duck and any of their fish dishes."

"Overall, we highly recommend Capital Seafood. They have both great dim sum and regular dishes. Also, if you have a large party, I recommend them as well. Please keep in mind, this is a larger than average sized restaurant and yes, it gets quite noisy. They also have two locations. I have been to both many, many times with both business lunches and large parties. Generally, everyone has a good time, enjoys the food and tries something new. Each locations has a different vibe. The service is better than average Chinese restaurants but sometimes you still have to work hard to add to your order, get a beverage- especially when it is packed or an off hour."
