I am from the East Coast, but looking for a venue for a rehearsal dinner in or around Mission Viejo or near Dove Canyon for next June. We are thinking fun and festive as the wedding is formal, so we decided on Mexican (many will be coming from areas of the country where Mexican food is not as usual as in southern CA. I read on TripAdvisor that Tortilla Flats has poor service an the food is so-so. Carmelita's has good food, but their patio is not covered, so am uncertain about what would happen if it rained.
Any thoughts on good food,pretty venue, with covered patio, if need be? Thanks.
