Best

Every course was fantastic, I ate until I almost exploded! I highly recommend their special salted fried and their tiramisu. The interior is classy...

Worst

Very young crowd, so loud, too expensive. Just not a very great place.

I wasn't impressed 6/7/2011

iLounge is really not my scene. The people there seemed to be having a good time, but they were also 10 years younger than me. (Am I getting that old!) Anyways, the food was ok, nothing special. The service was very good. more

The hired new management, and redecorated and it is gorgeous! Changing the name to Chateuax! So cool! Better crowd and music and the new chef is great. Can't wait till it is all complete.

This was still a great experience even though the crowd was a little younger than I would have liked Pros: Great Music Cons: Young crowd more

Great on the outside, terrible on the inside 5/5/2009

It takes forever to get in once you figure out which line to stand in. If you don't know anyone there you have no chance, female or male. Once you're in, the wait for the bathroom is 20+ minutes and the lines at the bar are even longer. The girls there are wearing ridiculous clothing and the guys are sketchy. The dance floor is great but beware of nasty inappropriate rubbing of bodies against each other on the padded walls of the dance floor. The music is ridiculously loud....you cant even communicate that you are getting the next round of drinks... Drinks at the bar are $10 minimum and don't be surprised if you drop $120 on you and your friends, and then get escorted out for being drunk after coming in from the smoking patio...picking no fights, spilling no drinks and minding your own business. Pros: Great Dancing Cons: Everything else more

degenerate bouncers 3/6/2009

all the bouncers are on a power trip looking for a fight , save your money anywhere is better then here!!! sutra, code, mexico anywhere! Pros: u get abused by low life degenerate bouncers Cons: if u get bottle service they woulnt be complete F ing prix more

horrible crowd 3/4/2009

cheesy & Hollywood wanna be's everywhere. It was sad. Girls were wearing no clothes. Guys were brainless. Really? Awful more

Be early or Save your time 1/23/2009

Where: iLounge Pros: The inside decor was nice looking Cons: music was simply Just Okay, the door men were jerks and do an amazing job at making sure you know you are not a valuable customer more

Cheesy and Lame 1/6/2009

This place is just another cheese fest in Orange County. The decor, the lighting, the staff...all of it. No originality and an 8$ an hour staff at the door that behaves like people owe them something. Robert at the front door is a complete d*ck. We arrived at 945 pm, the club was empty, and he made us wait like it was midnight and we were in Hollywood. Pros: The two brunette bartenders Cons: The doormen, and the unoriginal club. more

Bartenders 12/18/2008

So the first time I went to ilounge I thought maybe I was charged too much on my bar tab and when I confronted the bartender she told me that other people were ordering off of my tab. I understood and paid the tab. Idiot! Second time I opened up my tab and I counted my drinks. I counted maybe 15 to 18 drinks. Don't ask I'm an alcoholic. And it was later confirmed with one of the blonde bartenders that I ordered 17 drinks. But my tab was $170 . So could this be that my drinks were ten dollars each. Well do the math. 4 Cranberry vodka' and 8 shots of vodka 4 were 10$ each and 2 rum and cokes and one beer. That is for sure the amount on the tab. So does this club actually charge 10 and more per drink. I don't know but I paid my tab because my bartender was nowhere to be seen. Pros: Great music and atomosphere Cons: New Club more

Fun Times! Great food & a ""mean"" martini! 12/17/2008

I recently visited ILounge for the first time with some co-workers. It was a great place, nice decor and really great food (especially the artichoke pizza & the crab cakes)! YUM...Our server (wish I remembered his name) was TERRIFIC. He was friendly and never let our drinks get too low...he was also a great sport when one of our gals started dancing with him!! Everyone we met that worked there was wonderful (thanks Leslie for your wonderful care & attention). I only wish I'd saved more room for their desserts... Pros: Food, Great Drink menu, Decor & music!! Really an asset to the OC... more

Nice place but Bad service 12/16/2008

My friends and I got a table with a pretty waitress, but she had no idea what she was doing. She didn't wipe are tables which were sticky, and failed to give us enough menus. She placed our orders on the dirty tables and our utensils were dirty too. The service is terrible, the food was good, and the place itself was nice. For an upscale lounge the service was definitely not. The pizza and Halibut is delicious. The price is reasonable. I would recommend just to check out the place, but they really need to work on their service. I go there to dance and hang out, but the staff seems to always be changing. They certainly will not get any regulars here. There were a lot of other clubs around Ilounge and they were not as difficult to find. I would check those out. The ladies are a lot prettier than at Ilounge. Pros: reasonable price food, nice interior Cons: terrible service, dirty tables more

Best Hot Spot in the OC for food, drinks, dessert, nightlife, events and parties 12/15/2008

I went to the iLounge for a Christmas Party on a Wednesday night and the service was amazing. They made sure we were well taken care of. The food was delicious. I highly recomend the Pizza appetizer, crab cakes, Sea Bass as main entree and if you love chocolate you have to go for the chocolate dessert. Oh my!!! Pros: Atmosphere, Food, Drinks, people & Service. Also weekends cabs can take you home if needed. Very safe more

Rudest Door Staff EVER 10/19/2008

We decided to go check out Ilounge because our friend is tight with one of the guys who promotes on Fridays. Well, location is a bit strange, so I suggest navigation at at least mapquesting ahead of time to avoid the annoyance of driving round and round. So we get there, mandatory valet, stupid if you have to wait in a long line to get it, but we were ok with the $5. So we get to the door, and OMG can you have a ruder door staff?? We were on the list, but the promoter wasnt at the door so we dealt with a blond chick, Naomi I think her name was, not sure. What an attitude on this girl, with no right whatsoever, snappy and rude. That already started us off on a bad foot. So then some little dude (not surprising) with a clipboard, Im sure the same guy as the other poster, was just as rude. What a bad way to make an impression. Once we got inside, after the promoter came out, club was packed. Little problem with the a/c in certain areas, but overall a decent crowd, good music. We had bottle service, but unfortunately our blondie dingbat server was too busy socializing, and doing shots with her other table to pay any attention to us. Bottle prices are reasonable with a few bottles under 300. All in all not a bad club but they need to seriously reconsider what good service means. Pros: Hot crowd, good music, cheap bottle service Cons: RUDE door staff, unnattentive service more

damn this night was awesome.... 10/17/2008

I went last Friday and had a blast, the lines were long and i was thirsty. it was me and my boys ready to have a good time and hopefully get something to go home with. we tried waiting in the line but after about 5 minutes and watching this little guy with a clipboard take pay offs we decided if you cant beat them JOIN them. We walked to the front of the line and got told to stand to the side. When i got a chance i slipped the bouncer 120 for 3 guys, thats a pretty good deal i thought, this guy handed it right back and said no i needed to wait, you gotta be kidding me. This dude was retarded, so we waited and when the due with the clipboard came by we gave it to him and he ushered us right the dumb bouncer, that guy couldve made 120 but stupidly said no. WE got inside and the first thing was the crowd we had to practically kick and scream to get through the front door. some other dumb fat bouncer was chilling with some females. once we finally got in its was alright the crowd was cool, lots of females. The music was cool and the staff wasnt bad. overall this night was cool. but if you want to get past the lines and start enjoying the night sooner then later look for the little guy with the clipboard. no list or table just kick him some cash and its cool. i think his name was brandon. be slick and smooth or he wont do it. enjoy the night. Pros: you can get in if you are a high roller Cons: dumb bouncers at the front more
