California Fish Grill

3988 Barranca Parkway, Ste. B Irvine, CA 92606 | Irvine | 949-654-3838

Location Description:

One of those middle-class mini-chains common to Orange County-fancier than Knowlwood or Natraj but a step below Sage or the Daily Grill. The massive charbroiled fillets feature deep grill marks, and shine thanks to a powerful garlic-butter coating. Everyone should also order the grilled zucchini and its juicy, smoky innards.
