The food is ok, generous servings. Overall 3 food 3 service 4 ambience 4. This is one of my favorite restaurants but it has been awhile since we were in the area to go to it. I like be to come with family and grab a bite to eat before a movie. Both food and bar service while watching in comfy seats in the theater.
I asked what happened to the girl and he said, oh, she just moves around This is one of my favorite restaurants but it has been awhile since we were in the area to go to it. It is even better than I remember!! The food is outstanding and tasty. Not a large menu but everything on it is beautifully Lunch today was a real disappointment: All of your saved places can be found here in My Trips.

Many things did not meet our expectations regarding our first experience Saturday, October 13 at your Fashion Island location.
Let me begin with the restaurant which was barely filled with customers when we arrived for our reservation at 1 PM. We were promptly seated however it took to 1: Ok so that certainly wasn't up to any restaurant standards however what followed was worse.
I had purchased our tickets online for the 2: Upon arrival my wife and attempted to locate our seats which was poorly marked-both the row and the actual number of the seat. I went to the concierge desk and spoke with a man dressed in a suit behind the desk and told him I had a problem locating our seats, however I said, if I was correctly guessing which they were, I would like to change our seats to a row lower such as rows E or F.
I was then told by him that that was impossible because the movie was completely sold out-he said this without even checking. The venue was about a third full. Unprofessional, insulting, questionable character for what seems to have been the supervisor of The Lot. A great place to grab a bite before the movie.
Great Food, Flatbreads and Drinks Sounds and feels like a cafeteria. Carpeting would help but overall, just not very appealing. We had breakfast prior to an 11 movie. Servuce started off slow but then picked up. Excellent espresso from the coffee bar. The assortment at the coffee bar looked great.
We had egg dishes and they were very tasty. The frittata woth goat cheese had good flavors. Our waitress gave us a bag for our leftover croissant and waters to go for our theater experience. We wanted to know what the brass colored stand pictured was for — tohang your purse! Everything was great except for the service.
Hopefully that was the issue. This was my second visit. The first time the food was good. This time, for breakfast, I was disappointed after placing my order for lox and bagels, just to find out that they couldn't serve the bagels because they were not defrosted. A bit concerned about what else is frozen and not fressh.
Always enjoy hanging out at the Lot and seeing a movie. Love the atmosphere and very relaxing. Love the fire pits. Other than the website, this is a 5 star experience.
We often go to Sunday Brunch and decided to try their Sunday Brunch. The restaurant is beautiful, and there is good energy. We had a reservation for 1PM the 6 of us and were seated right away. There were not many tables occupied, but the table that we were seated at was so close to another occupied table that my chair was about 6" from our neighbors and the wait staff couldn't maneuver around our table without going around the adjacent table.
The brunch buffet looked impressive, but the french toast was hard and dry, the pancakes were stuck to the tray and came out as torn pieces, the enchiladas were dry, and the bacon was greasy and limp. The server was nice, but not very attentive as they stood around and chatted with each other instead. We will not return for brunch. There are many other more economical and better quality brunch options that we would go to, like Taco Rosa, El Torito, or Acapulco. Unfortunately, my dinner was not very good but I love the concept of a movie and dinner in the same location so will return and try a different item on the menu.
Our server did a great job but the food just was not up to par. The food is American comfort with vegetarian options and well done. The service is exceptional with great and involved management. Great casual fun place. Had a great breakfast with my husband then saw a movie!!
We love going to The Lot. Excellent location and food quality. Manger, Evan Hopkins was extremely courteous, friendly and helpful,. We will not return to this restaurant. There are management problems and the food is not what it was when they opened. There are many other good options in Fashion Island. The food was very good, but the music is way too loud and the service is pretty slow.
Very comfortable and nice atmosphere, but overpriced. I love the food and service from here. I like be to come with family and grab a bite to eat before a movie. We had hoped for a terrific first time visit but it did not pan out to be. The bartender made the wrong cocktail. And one of the entrees arrived incorrect. Bummed that we had a no so great experience because as locals we are always excited to support our community businesses. No air conditioning at 4: Did not stay for our dinner although we had made reservations.
The music was insufferable. Too loud for conversation. Great fun place, good casual food and service with the added benefit of being able to go straight into the theater and order off the same menu during the movie. Both food and bar service while watching in comfy seats in the theater.
The Island Cinema, closed for business awhile back. Now, it's reopened as The Lot, and features a restaurant in the former lobby. The theater part is still my favorite, but the restaurant experience was disappointing.
Repetitive, electronic club-style music thumped loudly and repetitively the whole time. The server was frustrated and overwhelmed, and the bar and kitchen were slow.
