The Captain's Table Restaurant

The Captain's Table Restaurant is located on the Campus of Orange Coast College, in Costa Mesa, CA.  It is a Culinary lab space where Culinary students are applying the skills learned earlier in the Culinary Program. This experience is the first time students are actually cooking for waiting guests.  The dining room service is also provided by students in our Dining Room Service class.  We offer lunch and dinner service, on Thursdays when the school is in session.  Special diets may be accommodated upon request – if made at the time of the reservation.

In the Fall

During the Fall Semester the format is one seating for lunch and dinner.  The Culinary Principle 3 class is learning "banquet-style" service in the context of American Regional Cuisine.  In a traditional banquet service, guests are seated all at once and are served the same items (there may be a choice or two) course by course.  We offer a three-course meal, with a choice of first and second course. The menu is changed each week, offering Regional cuisine from the around United States. We ask that our guests please show up on time as service begins promptly at the times below. 

For more information or reservations, please call: (714) 432-6896


Fall Seating Times:

  • Lunch:  12:00 (doors open at 11:45)

In the Spring

In the Spring we teach the "Ala Minute" cooking class.  The class is one of the last classes students will take before graduation and emphasizes a restaurant style service of World Cuisines with food items being cook to order throughout the meal period.  We offer a three-course meal with choices for each course and the menu changes to examine a different country each week.  Guests may make reservations at various times throughout the meal period.
