Irvine Spectrum was awesome 15 years ago... There are some nice restaurants, but on a whole it seems a bit stale.

Lots of places to eat. Not an outlet site, prices are above average. Fun to walk around and browse. People watching at its best. Large movie complex and a fun place to walk around

This is always a fun place to just hangout. Good vibe and great places to eat. Spent a little time shopping, got a bite to eat, then a little desert. Parking was a snap in one of the several parking structures.
