Go there with an open mind. They have a very interesting & diverse menu. Some items are very good & some not so much so. Just look at it as eating at a culinary school to be a different & fun experience.

They are a teaching facility where the students are learning to be chefs and do all the different jobs associated with running a restaurant. They are not always the most polished so give them a break. They are learning. No take out here. All sit down. I enjoyed the experience. Food was good.

Everything was delicious and well-prepared. Be sure to go hungry; it's a good-sized meal without being too big or too small.

From Our Editors

One look at the food at 5ifty Forks Restaurant and you'd think you were in the hands of cooks with decades of culinary experience—which is true, in part. Two professional chefs oversee the kitchen, but the lion’s share of the work—from menu creation to presentation—is carried out by students of the culinary program at The Art Institute of California - Orange County.

Drawing on what they’ve learned, the chefs-in-training run both the on-campus eatery's front-of-house operation and exhibition kitchen, where diners can watch their meals being made. To create the frequently changing menus, students rely on locally sourced ingredients, including many grown in the restaurant's own garden.

Recently, those fresh items have found their way into dishes such as roast quail with fig marmalade and desserts such as chocolate caramel tart with malted milk chocolate ice cream. In the dining room, natural light illumines seasonal installations by local artists, creating a warm atmosphere where patrons are invited to linger and provide students with feedback.
