Orange County friends... Need a little help :)

So I have noticed I've been going to the OC (Irvine, Lake Forest, Costa Mesa, Garden Grove, Anaheim.... etc) quite a bit recently (once a week?) and I don't know too much about the area, always relying on my friend(s) to pick spots.

I was thinking I'd pick some spots for once! As that is usually the case whenever someone comes to LA or the Valley.

Curious to hear everyone's recommendations for:
- Sushi (not AYCE) [Don't kill the pocket...but be fresh and good)
- Lounge (relaxed, chill, not crazy loud music... think like the W Hotel up here, maybe even The Edison? Not like J Lounge as it is a bit too loud and club like).
- Nice spot for dinner (maybe with a view? good food, good staff... Think Yamashiro, Odyssey, Castaway, Providence even, Il Forno Caldo, nothing that's really a big chain)
A tapas bar would be tight

- Seafood!
- Nice drives? (Like Angeles Forest, Malibu Canyon, Stunt Road..)

If you're not from LA... sorry if my references don't make sense).

I got a couple ideas for each through yelp and friends, but I'd love more!!

Thank you
