Review of Geisha House

The last day of OC Restaurant Week was amazing! My friend Rachelle and I went to Geisha House in Santa Ana, located across the street from the Main Place Mall.

This was well worth the price and especially after reading all of the negative reviews on YELP! It makes me think to not trust YELP! so much. But anyways off to the review.

We both decided to do the six course $30 menu.

The first course we both had the miso soup. Now miso soup is like comfort food to me. It was served nice and hot just the way it should be.

The next course we both went for the mixed greens with the soy ginger dressing. Soy ginger dressing is already one of my favorites as my mom made it and this one was close to my mom's recipe - I think they actually took it from her.

For the third course I went with the albacore carpaccio which was impressive. The slices of albacore were matched perfectly with the balsamic jalepeno sauce. Rachelle went with the kanpachi serrano a lovely blend of amberjack with a light lemon ponzo sauce. The citric acid went perfectly with the amberjack.

Next up was the white samurai roll. This was just a wonderful blend of spicy tuna and spicy crab with more albacore. Rachelle went with the surf and turf roll and lovely blend of lobster with thinly sliced melt in your mouth filet mignon.

For our main entree with both choose the grilled filet mignon in a soy, garlic and sesame sauce which was to die for. The filet mignon melted in your mouth and the suce was just savory. The side of asparagus was perfect with a nice crunch and more of that delicious sauce that was marinated with the filte mignon.

Fro dessert I went with the coconut creme brulee which was just perfect though I wish the serving size was a bit larger. It was rich and creamy and not very overpowering on coconut flavor. Rachelle went with the crisp fruit wontons which were hot and delicious.

Speaking for the two of us, we will be back to Geisha House! totally worth the prix fixe menu deal and please do not believe the reviews in YELP!
