    We each had the grilled peaches with prosciutto for starters. We found all the ingredients used for this dish to be good and a nice combination. We both ordered IPA Brisket based on the servers’ comment that it had been braised in IPA beer for 13 hours. Our friends both had the New York Steak. We found the briskets to be surprisingly tough and my wife asked for a steak knife to cut hers. Since it was braised for 13 hours, I was expecting something closer to fork tender. On the plus side the sauce was good, the other items were tasty and the dish was nicely presented. Our friends found both their steaks to be cooked just right and favorable but they encountered a lot of gristle in their steaks. Service was great and on the mark.

    Enjoyed the ambience of Pub Thirty-Two. It was a fun place to watch the Angels game. We started off with the bacon wrapped dates with goat cheese which was pretty good. I had the IPA brisket. I didn't like the sauce that came with it, and the brisket was stringy and a bit chewy, but the mashed potatoes were rich and delicious. My husband had the pub burger and really enjoyed it, but would have enjoyed it more if they would have had regular French's mustard. He a pretty simple eater and doesn't like all the fancy stuff like homemade ketchup and grainy mustard. Will definitely go back to try other menu items that looked good passing by on the way to someone else's table. One thing, make sure the beer glass is empty before taking the glass.

    After reading the OC Register review, I was excited to try Pub32. While I will give good reviews to the food (we had the brisket and the half-chicken), it is by NO means a romantic place to bring your wife/girlfriend. Whereas Dublin4 Gastropub is a top-notch place for food and ambiance, Pub32 is really JUST a pub/bar that serves very good food. The décor is bare bones, cement floors, even on the restaurant side, so it is a bit loud and echoes a bit inside.

    Finally a great restaurant in Mission Viejo and not a chain! Great interior decor, wonderful and attentive service and fantastic food. We had the white peach salad, brisket and lamb tenderloin, and all were superb. The owner was very attentive and met all the guests. I really hope this place makes it; a great find!

    Read some good reviews, was excited to try, no booths, husband sat facing a wall through our meal, ordered bottle of wine, husband opened cause sever could not, server never came back to pour more wine, left to do ourselves, asked what was good on menu, server suggested a salad?? as their favorite. Based on reviews read we ordered: lamb meatballs - but very hard, dry, overcooked, pork loin was so full of mesquite (not noted in menu) everything on the plate tasted the same, mesquite. We didn't finish dinner, paid check and hit McDs on our way home. Took a long while for the mesquite flavor to subside. Don't think well try again, not at their prices.

    A friend of mine had been here twice for lunch from a local business and said the food was fabulous visit #1, but not as good visit #2 (same entree). She said the service both times was sketchy at best. The service Thursday night was very good - we had at least for people check on us, inquiring about the food, wine, etc. We had spiced nuts from the bar menu - needed a teeny bit more heat to the spice, and the charcuterie and the cheese plates (no combo available). The selections were fresh and a nice serving size for two. I would have loved some fruit on the cheese plate. We arrived at 6:20, left around 9:15. Place was packed! I hope they keep up the service since lunch is an important time to shine. Business people refer for dinner.
