Birthday dinner recommendations - Orange County

Hello - I am a native New Yorker whose husband's job required us to move to Orange County (Irvine) recently. My 32nd birthday is next week and I'm looking for a really good celebratory meal. I don't have a specific cuisine in mine and it will just be the two of us. To give you an idea of the type of restaurant I'm looking for, my favorite restaurant in the whole world (ok, my limited world) is Blue Hill, Dan Barber's restaurant in the Village. I love everything about it. A few other NY restaurants that I like - Balthazar (yes, it's touristy but I've loved it for more than a decade), Bouley, Convivio, and Tartine. In Orange County, I've already tried Sage, Stonehill Tavern, and Old Vine Cafe. I feel bad about saying this, but I didn't think any were in the least bit memorable. Can you provide some recommendations? Thank you in advance!!
