Visited WP's Kitchen for lunch with a party of three and we were not overly impressed. Service was less than satisfactory and the young Lady L. who served us could do with a lot more training - she spilled our wine, did not pour the wine to taste and did not clear our cocktail glasses until we finished the meal. Main courses were served while we were still having our appetisers and all that in an empty restaurant. I can understand that WP wants to make as much money as possible by opening these types of franchises, but it definitely does not help his reputation. Since the restaurant is located within Macy's at the South Coast Plaza shopping centre, there are a lot better choices around.

The restaurant is no longer in operation at south. Coast plaza. We went before a concert but the signage is gone. They are out of business. So check other locations of operation .

Always a favorite. Have eaten there several times, never fails to please. Calamari always good, meatloaf too!

Pucks restaurants have been around a long while and added a lot of locations. You might think they would get tired like so many chains do. Well, if you're at South Coast Plaza and crave a gourmet pizza this is still an excellent choice. The furniture in the restaurant could use a refresh (the seats in the booths were literally torn up so you have to sit on the stuffing). But the kitchen still turns out a satisfying pizza at a decent price point.

This Wolfgang Puck's is in the Macy's Department store and has indoor and outdoor eating. The food is consistently good.
