Everything is really great here. The streets, the schools, and the people.
This rating is more for the bars/ drinks in Irvine, rather than the restaurants. There are many nice restaurants, mostly of asian decent or a large food chain. Many of the restaurants have nice happy hours. There is only one bar in Irvine, which is located on the UCI campus.
