Bio
Aside from Dine.Com, I have been writing reviews for Zagat and other services since 1977. No, I don't get paid for reviews. I make more than enough money in my regular job, and it allows me to travel and discover new places to eat. My policy is to remain an anonymous customer. I will only reveal to a restaurant that I am a reviewer after the end of the meal -- and only then if the restaurant was terrific. Hope you enjoy my reviews! Dave Mori

Nieuport 17 Restaurant Tustin, CA
Good quality but just average restaurant. Part of a chain of family restuarants which includes the 94th Aero Squadron in the San Fernando Valley. Nieuport 17 has a world war I theme and aviation theme.
Macaroni Grill Irvine, CA
Just OK chain of upscale Italian restaurants with locations all over California. The first thing you will notice walking in is a very strong scent of garlic. Nothing much here, but an acceptable change of pace.
Vessia Restaurant Irvine, CA
Just OK new Italian cuisine restaurant. Not recommended
