Diner Reviews
  • "We had friends in from out of town and remembering previous dining experiences here we felt this would be a great choice for lunch. We arrived at our reserved time of 1 PM and were dismayed to find the place practically empty. We sat at an outside table and noticed there was no one in the main dining room at all and saw only one other couple at an outside table. That made our guests a bit skeptical. The meal was good, as was the service so no complaints there. Perhaps some good advertising would bring in more trade."

  • " We enjoyed our evening. The service was great, the ambience was wonderful with the piano in the background. The food was good, however I think I would try something different. I had the Wiener Schnitzel hoping for something close to my Mother's delicious veal dish. It didn't happen although the veal was good, it had too much breading. The spatzle and red cabbage were very good. We upgraded our salads and while they were good, they were a bit small. I will go back and try something different because my husbands salmon was excellent and I can see the possibilities."

  • "Food, service and live piano all excellent. All 6 in our group ate everything on their plate. No doggie bags this visit. Home made dessert pasteries were the best."

  • "We visited with a party of 5 so it was easy to order all 5 of their appetizers...not one of them disappointed! The house salad as well as the endive salad and the french soup were outstanding. The Wiener Schnitzel was authentic, delicious and both tender and crispy. Australian Lamb Rack Provençal (huge portion) was moist and tasty as was the Beef Wellington which was well worth the wait. We also enjoyed the Pan-Seared Crispy Duck Breast; tasty and well prepared. Even though the restaurant was hosting a wedding party of 150 in the outside court, our table was quiet and we were able to enjoy the pianist providing classical background music. Service was outstanding. We will definitely return!"

  • "Cafe Mozart is directly across the street from the San Juan Capistrano Tesla recharging station. If you make a reservation you can dine in style while you wait. Fresh food, great menu, friendly service and above average wine list. Beats the fast food choices by a mile."

  • "We took our 93 year-old Father here for lunch. Atmosphere was perfect. He has a hard time hearing with a lot of noise and it was fairly quiet at 12:00. It got a little noisier soon as families started arriving but it was still fine since there is a lot of room between tables. We had 2vegetarians in our group, one being vegan. Only one choice for us - the veggie-grilled sandwich. It was delicious but wish we had more choices. My only complaint, and it's a little one, is that my father ordered French Onion Soup and French Toast (delicious by the way) and they arrived together. It would have been nice to have the soup first."

  • "We had a reservation for 1:30 and didn't get served until almost 3:00. Very slow bring out our main course and then it could have been warmer. The food tasted great as usual. Just disappointed in the service. We had are 4 year old grandson with us and the wait was really difficult. Maybe it was slow because we chose the patio rather than the dinning room. "

  • "Rack of lamb and beef Wellington were both medium well but ordered medium rare. Quite a long wait for the entre after eating appetizer and salad."

  • "All I can say is that we will be coming back to Cafe Mozart soon, and often! The food is absolutely exquisite! Also, we dined on Friday night and had a beautiful piano performance as well. I highly recommend this restaurant!"
