Beautiful, quiet and elegant French restaurant on the 3rd floor of South Coast Plaza. Food was excellent, service was excellent, and I would recommend Knife Pleat to everyone I know. Five stars.

Amazing review! Thank you!
Knife Pleat is a fantastic restaurant. The food is exquisite--French with a California lightening--and the service is friendly and attentive. This place is a keeper. Long may it thrive.
Thank for dining with us and sharing this awesome review! See you soon!
All of our dishes were beautifully presented and delicious. All four of us look forward to returning
Delicious. Wonderfully executed. Lastingly good impression. However, would not add the black truffle to risotto again as it has almost no taste. We expected a slightly mushroomy taste to the slices of truffle.
Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Thank you for the feedback and for dining with us!
food was good but the food menu and the wine selection were limited.
Thank you for the feedback! Chef Tony will be changing up the menu for spring soon. Make sure to come try some new dishes.
Any occasion is perfect:) food is to die for
Agreed! Great Review!
Lovely ambiance, exceptional cuisine and amazing service!
We're very happy to hear that you loved the experience. Thank you!
The truffle Brie and lobster salad are must haves!
2 of my favorites for sure!
Stylish French - style restaurant at South Coast Plaza. I like the 3 course lunch menu and from today’s menu the sea bream as main course and panna cotta as desert were excellent.
Beautiful kitchen. Menu
Very limited and for the talent in the kitchen would have expected greater flavors. Dining room staff professional and courteous but in a hurry. Forgot one of courses. Overall, for the glam, need to work on menu.
Thank you for the feedback!
1. Great service from entire staff.
2. Food was well prepared and worth-a- try good. Filet mignon was tender and flavorful, but was under seared.
3. Don't care for the under informed 3% BOC. Should be handled among the owner, management and staff.
Great feedback! We are excited that you had a great time.
Amazing menu for a Valentine’s day Thank you Tony and Yasmine for very nice evening
So nice having you in! Thank you!
This was a true fine dining experience, undertaken on Valentine's Day. Each dish was plated beautifully, portioned just right, and in the end, delicious.
Great to speak with you the other day! Thank you!
Our experience for dinner at Knife Pleat was outstanding on every level. I will be back for lunch.
Lunch is always a great choice when at SCP!
Very disappointing. We had to send dishes back and it was extremely over priced.
Our apologies! Did you speak with a manager while you were here?
Knife Pleat is an exceptional dining experience. The quality of food is magnificent. The atmosphere calm and the chef Tony and his beautiful wife Yasmin make you feel like a valued guest.
It was an absolute pleasure having you dine with us! See you soon!
This restaurant is just beautiful ... felt like I was in NYC! The food & cocktails were all excellent, & the service was friendly. My complaints are that there was a looooong wait to get our cocktails, & the same to get the entrees. Also, it’s crazy expensive for a restaurant in a mall!
We get the comment about feeling like NYC rather often! I wonder what it is?
I enjoyed our meal, but did not look at my bill until I was checking my statement and discovered I was charge for a Martini, that I didn't order and did not receive. My second surprise was the 3% BOH Service Charge, which I don't recall be advised.
It's a shame as the food was very good, but I'm not sure we would return.
Good Evening, We would love to look in to the martini that was over rung on your check. Please call the restaurant at your earliest convenience to speak with a manager. The BOH appreciation charge is completely voluntary and in print on the bottom of our menus! We hope to speak with you soon. Thank you!
Service could be worked on. Attention to custom needs were lacking. We ordered the same martini’s at the same time and one perfect the other was not. I will still return for the excellent food.
We're happy to hear that you enjoyed the food and always appreciate feedback in regards to the entire experience! We will gladly remake any drinks until we get it right for you so please don't hesitate to let a manager know. Thank you and we hope to have you in soon!
It was wonderful food & perfect day for sitting on the patio.
The patio can be majestic at times! Thank you for the review.
Chef Tony and Yassmin have created an outstanding restaurant. The dishes for both lunch and dinner are excellent. The servers are attentive and friendly. Knife Pleat is a great addition to the Orange County dining scene.
The TEAM has worked extremely hard to receive reviews like yours! We appreciate the support so much!
Knife Pleat has a casual elegance that is not to be missed. Outstanding service, delicious food and still unpretentious. The lobster salad was quite large, filled with hunks of luscious chunks. The three course offering was also a wonderful option. Don't skip the bread, if only for the butter. Dessert is a must! Can't wait to return!
Delivering outstanding unpretentious service and delicious food are our number goals at Knife Pleat. Thank you for your patronage!
Elegant French restaurant in South Coast Plaza, very attentive service and great food. I like the variation of dishes with a changing menu next to the a la carte items. From the Chinese New Year menu I had the duck dumplings, which were very flavorful, and the pineapple tart, which was excellent. My favorite dish here still is the duck cassoulet, at least for the “ winter” .
The Duck Cassoulet out sells any other lunch entree! Thank you for supporting us!
This is a great place for gathering. Great value for lunch pre-fix!! Quality food and service.
Lunch pre-fixe menu is a great value! Thank you for reviewing!
Enjoyed a late, leisurely lunch with a friend. The cuisine was inspired --delicious and beautiful visuals. We started with an amazing brie "Napoleon" that had layers of black truffles and was served with toasted baguette. It was recommended by the chef and very unique. The lobster Caesar salad with avocado was one of the best entree salads I've had in a long time. Generous portion. My guest has the steak tartare and enjoyed it. The French pastry chef here is a talent--we shared a pineapple tart with almond cream and a touch of orange that was perfection. If you're looking for a refined lunch experience in a lovely ambiance, Knife Pleat is a find. Sure to impress.
The Brie Napoleon should not be missed by anyone dining with us. Truly amazing! Thank you for the review!
Thank you for adding some additions! The ambiance at Knife Pleat is unmatched! And don’t forget to see the gorgeous restroom!
Restrooms are definitely photo worthy of the gram!
Food and service were good but it is quite expensive for lunch ($140 for 2 not including tips). Moreover we were charged with another 3% for back of house service. I never heard of this charge even at 5 star hotel or great restaurant.
Thank you for joining us and taking the time to review us!
