Gemmell's Restaurant

Rich soups, seafood in butter sauce, filet mignon, creamy desserts—the high points of French cuisine are well-represented at Gemmell's Restaurant. Chef Gemmell uses that tradition as a starting point for a menu that reflects the multicultural techniques you might expect from a chef of his background. Born to a Scottish family living in Guatemala, Chef Gemmell moved to the United States in 1971 and landed a job as a busboy serving famous cartoon characters at the Disneyland Hotel. He soon began working his way up in the kitchen, opening his first eatery by the age of 30.

Today, at his namesake restaurant, Chef Gemmell smokes his own fish, quail, and goose, and devises his own recipes for ice creams and pastries—skills that lead Gayot to write that the chef is a "rather underrated restaurateur in South Orange County." The menu celebrates Pacific Coast seafood, along with the tender meats and vegetables given classic French preparations. Once you enter past the palmettos and white ironwork that guard the restaurant (tucked away near Dana Cove), the ambience is equally Old World. A carved wooden mantel and tall chairs and tables create a setting that imparts an eclectic homeyness without losing a drop of elegance.

Great spot! Food was amazing - had a very nice walk around the marina with all the lights.

The service was great! A little deceiving on Groupon it said this was a 245$ value, there were no exceptions on the menu (I read the fine print), but I guess there's always a catch. It was more like a 120$ value. Overall good food!
