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.

We had dinner at Leatherby's before attending Carole King's musical "Beautiful" since it is so convenient to Segerstrom Center for the Arts and have never been disappointed with the food and service. They offer a variety of pre-theater prix fixe options and we chose the market option as we brought a killer Napa Cab rated 96 by Parker.We really enjoyed... More

We've enjoyed both lunch and dinner at this restaurant. It's located on the Segerstrom Hall site so very convenient if you're attending an event there. They validate for $10 off the $20 Valet Parking charge. Best of all, the food is excellent and the service great.

What a gem! I would go back there even if I were not going to the theater! Our entrees were delicious, a great menu variety, excellent presentation, delicious cosmopolitans, and Arsolon (not sure of the spelling), our server, was very professional. I wish they were open for post theater drinks and desserts. Bravo to Leatherby's

Beautiful location with excellent service. The booths feel very private. The vegetarian meal I had was good, not excellent. The person I was with had seafood and said it was excellent.

If you go to the Orange County Performing Art Center for a play, this is the place to eat. It is so close to the venue, but make sure to make reservations. It is very busy on play day. Their pre-theater special is wonderful and priced right. Great value , excellent food and service

Lousy service, food and attitude. When Water Grill opens, they will pay the price of their convenient location. There are still enough decent restaurants near by. Skip this!

We had dinner at Leatherby's before a show at the Segerstrom. Our waiter and all staff we've encountered were friendly and helpful. We had 2 desserts and they were amazing....however the other dinner food items we had were just ok. We ordered from their a la carte menu which one would imagine would be their brand-and-butter and therefore should be... More

We wanted a nice meal before our show at Segerstrom and Leatherby's came highly recommended. It is a lovely glass filled spot with incredible service. We originally planned to eat off the a la carte menu but found that many of our choices were on the "show themed menu" at a lower price. We had three wonderful courses -- my... More
