Great Find - Definitely a Must - Edit

We had the enchiladas and they were amazing! For dessert we shared a peach and blueberry crumble with caramel sauce and coconut ice cream. Stupendous! Not fancy, but the food here is phenomenal and the service was very friendly. You gotta try this place. It will be a favorite for you.

Pros: excellent food and service , gluten free available

Super creative - Edit

Really amazing, imaginative food. Love the open atmosphere. Great selection of craft beers. The "drumsticks" were outrageously creative (made from artichokes!) and seriously divine. I went a little nuts and ordered WAY too much food but it was really hard to decide. And, I had leftovers :) Highly recommend Seabirds.

Pros: Easy to find location, Ample seating, Creative menu

From Food Truck to Restaurant - Edit

Seabirds Kitchen has great options such as the brussel sprouts, beet burger, and jackfruit taco. I have had them all at different meals there. My first meal with Seabirds Kitchen was when their food truck was at the OC Fair years ago and I had the most delicious jackfruit taco.

Pros: Vegan and tasty, Offers real vegetables along with processed vegs, Love the atmosphere in the quaint anti-mall

Cons: Processed sugar is in some of the foods, Too busy on a Friday night to dine in, Strange acoustics make indoor conversations tiring

Great for Brunch, Can be Pricey - Edit

Went to Seabirds with a friend for brunch (have been there a couple of times prior for lunch) and the options were good. I recommend the flax jacks-they were very good! One of the negatives was that there was a surcharge for extra syrup (not a lot was given to begin with). The Lab has never had excellent parking to begin with so keep that in mind when planning to eat there.

Pros: Good Selection, Interesting Menu, They have Brunch 🥞, Fully Vegan Menu

Cons: Not Cost Effective, Limited Parking

Delicious! My absolute favourite! - Edit

I visit here every time I'm in Costa Mesa, which is frequently. They have the absolute best all vegan menu, which changes seasonally. The food is amazing! My favorites are the tacos, locals bowl and purple taquitos. Last time I was there there were queues to get in both for dinner and lunch. The decor is really cool and the staff super friendly. I really wish they would bring back the peach cobbler as it was my favourite dessert.

Pros: Amazing food, Great atmosphere and decor, Nice staff

Cons: There might be a queue, You will want to eat everything on the menu

my favorite restaurant in the entire world ❤️ - Edit

This place is perfect. Everything I've ever wanted in a restaurant. Everything on the menu is amazing. I come out spending a fortune because I can never just order an entree. They change things often so I never get bored, but they keep the classics. Their grilled cheese is my whole world. The purple taquitos are bomb. The Brussel sprouts make you forget you're eating a vegetable. The strawberry cream cheese scones are completely ridiculous. I literally have dreams about them. The porque Maria (like a vegan monte cristo) on the brunch menu is soooo great. Their pop tarts are awesome, specifically the cinnamon sugar ones. The Chaffle is crazy. I could go on and on. Seabirds is a vegan oasis.

wonderfully delicious food in a cool environment - Edit

The lab is already awesome, but add an all vegan restaurant and you have yourself the raddest concept! A total must if you're in the Southern California region. Go for brunch and get yourself the Booch Mimosa! I also recommend the avo toast dish! Wish I could have eaten everything! Major points, friendly staff! Way to represent the vegan lifestyle! Totally worth the trip!

Pros: ALL VEGAN, friendly staff, kombucha Mimosas

The perfect patio dinner - Edit

I enjoyed dinner with a large group, and the service was awesome. The food was all delicious, and I especially loved the flavor & spice of the Purple Taquitos.
The patio is so cute, and it's the perfect spot to take in a meal at dusk. I can't wait to go back and try more!

Pros: Amazing flavor, Friendly service, Adorable patio space

Broke my cell phone and did not pay for it, bad food. - Edit

I went there for lunch because I am vegan, besides the bread of the hamburgers being old and hard, the waitress accidentally dropped a fork on my iphone and broke the screen. I talked to the manager and gave him a quote of what it will cost to fix it so he could give me the money, he said he would not give it until I fixed it and send him the receipt, I did as he told me and since then he has not answered one phone call to the restaurant, cell phone or email. He did not even make a discount on our food for the inconvenience. I am really mad at his service and lack of honesty and trust, the most expensive vegan food I have had, I payed $125 dlls for the screen and he is not taking responsability and did not keep his word.

Amazing food! Great atmosphere - Edit

My friend told me about Seabirds and I was surprised that I hadn't heard of it. I quickly took my kids there and we loved it! It offers delicious and healthy meals using a lot of jackfruit, which blew our minds! The portions were large and the menu had lots of options so everyone in our big family could find something they enjoyed. The Chaffle for dessert was awesome! Our server forgot our appetizer so it came after our food was delivered. It wasn't a big deal, but it wasn't the best service either. It was also crowded (Sun night) so we had to sit in the back near the restrooms. I'm still giving it 5 stars because the food was that good!

Pros: Incredible tasting food, Healthy variety of plant based foods, Great atmosphere

Cons: Pretty crowded, More expensive than comparable places nearby, Service could have been better

Dinner is great, but brunch is sublime - Edit

The vegan grilled cheese here is second to none. Get an order of that, and some pancakes with almond butter to treat yourself.

Dinner is good, but can get expensive.

Yummy! - Edit

This place is absolutely amazing! My favorite dishes are the beer battered avocados, BBQ jack fruit sliders(great for those that love pulled meat, it tastes just like the real thing!). Also, one of the vegan desserts called the "Chaffle" is a churro waffle topped with coconut ice cream and drizzled with chocolate sauce! It is so delicious!

Vegans and Omnivores alike have to try this place!

Pros: Delicious food

Cons: Parking is limited

Can't Get Enough - Edit

I took my non-vegan parents to this restaurant on my birthday. Two weeks later and this place is STILL on my mind. So good!

My parents had never been to a vegan restaurant and were completely blown out of the water by how good it was. The menu features innovative, fresh takes on classic dishes like sliders, enchiladas, tacos, and more. They didn't even miss the meat at all.

The best part? They use fresh, local veggies. You can really tell that the quality is profound. The other best part? It's super inexpensive, considering that each dish is top-notch AND gives you more than enough food!

Try the $4 street tacos. They're amazing.

I have a hard time eating anywhere else after dining at Seabirds! Probably changed my life or something.

Pros: Great Flavors, Inexpensive, 100% Vegan

Cons: Noisy interior, Insufficient parking

Chaffle is to die for! - Edit

It's allllll about the chaffle! I'd basically crawl over broken glass to get one. It exceeds all of my vegan dreams! As far as other items on the menu, it has been a tad hit or miss. But irrelevant, bc I will forever be loyal to the chaffle.

Pros: Unique Dessert

Cons: Parking

Lovely dinner - Edit

I finally made it here with an out of town friend. We arrived as the sun was setting and sat outside. The patio area is just delightful. We started off with beers along with Brussels sprouts and BBQ jackfruit sliders. Both delicious. For my entrée, I got the enoki reuben which was terrific and creative. My friend got an avo taco with the kale strawberry salad. We shared the peach crumble for dessert which was very tasty. Our waiter was very friendly and informative. The location at the Lab is nice, but the parking is a bit crazy. Overall, we had a great time and look forward to returning.

Pros: tasty and filling, nice atmosphere, friendly staff

Cons: parking

Great place for date night! - Edit

The hurt Brussels sprouts are amazing and spurred a new addiction of mine, although I'm never able to make mine as food as there's. I look forward to going back soon to try the enchiladas! Service and atmosphere was amazing! We love the lab and this restaurant!

Pros: good service, yummy food

Cons: pricey but worth it
