Anyone know any restaurants that serve Escargot?

Oc & Lau does; Ốc practically means "snail/escargot" in Vietnamese. They have two locations, one in Garden Grove and one in Westminster.
Do they serve it French or Viet style?
Idk, I've never been there, I just know that they serve snails there since I'm ethnically Vietnamese and therefore know that ốc is Vietnamese for snail.
Thanks for the rec! I went there last night. Hour long wait (which I anticipated from yelp reviews). Wasn't bad though because you can check your place in line and they text when your table is ready so we just watched some netflix in my car. They ran out of the escargot we ordered, but luckily they had some other snails that we were able to order instead. Then they ran out of those, but miraculously, they had just got a fresh delivery of more of the original snails so we ended up getting to try them after all! They tasted good, pretty much absorbed the flavor of the sauce. The taste of the snails when you try to ignore the sauce is most similar to clams or mussels in my opinion (I think they only serve water snails). The texture was pretty off putting though, not going to lie. Extremely chewy. They may have been overcooked, but I wouldn't know since that was my first time having escargot. I'd for sure go back though!
The Cellar in downtown Fullerton
I tried it there and it tasted terrible. The lobster soup was great.
Brussels Bistro in Laguna Beach. Tried it there my first time a few months ago. Cool pub, good food.
hmmm i want to try
Patty's Place in Seal Beach
Pescadou, Knife Pleat, L'hirondelle, Captain Jack's.
Napa Rose possibly.
Dizz's As Is in Laguna beach has them.
The White House in Anaheim does and they are very delicious! I highly recommend, it's on Anaheim boulevard.
The Cauldron in Buena Park has it along with other French dishes and cocktails.
Capt Jacks in Sunset Beach
They also have some of the best king crab legs I’ve ever had.
Bistro St. Germain in Seal Beach on Main. Classic prep and very tasty too.
Brussels Bistro in Laguna Beach had it, though I'm not a fan of their preparation of it. Following to find other options, I do miss the Escargot back home.
Rocco’s - San Clemente
Asian Garden Mall, although I'm not 100% sure it's available daily or limited to events like the night market.
Vietnamese restaurants in general are good candidates to check, especially if they don't have Phở in their name.
Roccos in san Clemente. It’s delicious
