We had dinner at this sleek, modern restaurant that fits perfectly into the Segerstrom Center's style. I had an excellent martini before I enjoyed the duck I had for dinner, while my guest had lamb chops that were expertly prepared. The only criticism we had...More

The surrounding venue is so beautiful at night but don't miss your reservation by walking around for too long; one can continue to indulge the view while dining in the all clear window setting of the restaurant. The mediam-cooked duck breast is just as good...More

A month ago, my wife made a reservation for dinner at Leatherby's. When we arrived last week, the restaurant's doors were open and the lights were on...but the place was empty. No diners and no staff! We checked Leatherby's website and it showed the place...More

After hearing so many raves about this place my three girlfriends and I decided to give it a try before a Segerstrom event. From the beginning we felt rushed, not attended to, forgotten at times and just not good customer service. We brought our own...More

Pricey but excellent food and incredibly convenient for pre- or post-Segerstrom concert/theatre events. $10 valet parking for the restaurant includes the Segerstrom event with validation. The food was wonderful. I have never seen halibut so brilliantly white before. The filet mignon was incredibly tender. Rick,...More

We've been coming here for many years with excellent results. Apparently there is a new chef as the food is not as nearly as good as it used to be. Service is still pretty good, but not great. We had to pay $5 for a...More

I rushed to get to the theater at 6 only to learn that the show was at 8. So, someone suggested I go to the "cafe". Located right next to Segerstrom Theater, it is a lovely restaurant, light and airy decor, spaciously placed tables, excellent...More

Perfect location for a pre-theater dinner or drink. The restaurant has huge windows that overlook the courtyard of Segerstrom Performing Arts Center so it's nice to watch the hustle and bustle of people. Leatherby's is white linen dining but it fits the area well. For...More

Great dining experience. Food is excellent and service was friendly and attentive. If going to the theatre or a concert try to get there early as it does fill up. Modern atmosphere and good wine list. Will definitely go back. You need reservations.
