We had tickets for "Wicked" and wanted to make a special evening. The Silver Trumpet did not disappoint. We had great seating by the window, enjoyed a beautiful meal with all the trimmings then just walked across the street to the theater.

The food was very good as was the service. The restaurant is very pretty but only three tables were occupied for the pre-theatre dinner time.

We enjoyed the food and service
We enjoyed the food and service immensely. Though the menu is limited, the preparation is excellent. I've occsionally chosen the Silver Trumpet for pre concert or pre theater dining. I love the musical instruments décor and the background music. The only downside is the food is a little pricey running over $100 for the two of us with tea as the only beverage. Kathleen

Pre-show dining at Sliver Trumpet
Sliver Trumpet is still in the process of embellishing it's interior decor. The soft padded seating around the perimeter is wonderful and gives a very relaxed feeling. Food it great and fresh and well portioned. Allow at least 90 minutes for pre-show dining at any venue at Segerstom Center. The service is good but you have to take into consideration the preparation time in the kitchen. Everything is freshly prepared and well worth the wait. The Silver Trumpet Lounge is fantastic for quick bites before a show and a nightcap after the show. Parking validation with dinner or lounge is a welcome added feature.

This is our first time back
This is our first time back since the remodel and were very pleased with the results. My date could not stop raving about the decor and the food. She loved the bar as well. The service was top notch and the supervisor stopped by the table foa a delighful chat. Great evening we will be back.

What a find
We went here because we had a Travelzoo certificate. We dined on the patio overlooking a small lake. The bacon wrapped dates stuffed with chorizo were amazing. We both had the pepper-crusted filet, cooked to perfection and the herbed topping was delicious. For dessert we had the tiramisu cake, this was a little dry. We also got Salted Caramel pot de creme--a little too watery but very tasty. Fairly limited wine list. I think the $20 corkage fee is a little high. The place was very quite for a Fri evening. We were they around 7 pm and only saw about 6 tables of people the entire time we were there.

Great lunch spot
Menu selections for lunch will please everyone in your party. The wraps are outstanding.
The atmosphere is relaxing and gives you a welcomed break after business meetings.
Service is excellent from hostess to all the servers.
This is a true local gem.

Best Kept Secret in Orange County!
What a great restaurant! The decor and atmosphere is spectacular! Great outdoor setting by the lake and indoor, where we sat, is so unique and inviting. Food was fantastic! Loved the filet mignon! They have a new pastry chef, the warm pumpkin bread pudding was outstanding! Service was awesome, our waiter Alexander was top notch and we were visited by the manager who made sure our experience was the absolute best.

Wonderful pre theater dinner
We ate an early 5:30 dinner prior walking across the street to the Segrestrom Venue. The atmosphere is modern and
Very attractive. Several tall tables, but also Booth and small table seating. Very comfortable bar seating and patio seating too.
The entrees seemed limited to me, but the shrimp pasta primavera was cooked perfectly and absolutely delicious. Nice selection of salads appetizers, recommend the Zuchinni blossoms. Service was almost too attentive. The manager, and server checked on us numerous times. Wine selection ok with generous pours. The corkage fee was quoted at $30, a bit high, considering there are two Patina restaurants in the area.

Before Theater Gem
Truly enjoyed our lovely dinner. Crab cakes were full of lump crab meat with very little filler and delicious garnishes. Filet was very tender, flavorful and perfectly medium rare. While they were out of our preferred dessert, the pineapple upside-down cake was wonderful, carmel goodness. The setting was beautiful, upscale, modern, and relaxing. Service started out a little slow and I felt overlooked. But it improved during the meal and I was satisfied. Quite a nie way to start an evening of dinner and theater.

The foods were great. We both ordered the prime rib from the special menu for that day. The slow cook fib was juicy and tender. I would like to add that the crab cake appetizer was fantastic. The service was great. It is good place to go to for dinner prior to attending a play/show/concert at the OCPAC nearby.

This was our first time at
This was our first time at Silver Trumpet on a recommendation from a friend and we were pleasantly surprised. When at home, we normally don't dine at hotel restaurants because, in many cases, the food is dull and substandard. Not the case with Silver Trumpet. Kuddos to the chef! Tthe food, from appetizers to dessert, was creative and very tasty. There were four in our party and not one negative comment among us. My favorites were the chorizo stuffed dates and the skirt steak with chimchurri, purple mashed potatoes and creamed corn polenta. Delish!!!!! The décor is hip modern with an upbeat vibe yet quiet enough to have a conversation. Loved this place and will definitely go back many times.

Took my groom out for dinner and a show. The entire evening was better than we could have expected. We would recommend this to all our friends. We will return.

This restaurant adjacent to
This restaurant adjacent to the Wyndham Hotel in Costa Mesa (and across the street from the performing arts center) has been open just under a year, and I think they're on to something. The service was excellent (My server Alex, and the food and beverage supervisor, Saida, could not have been more helpful, professional or friendly)! The place is gorgeous; very well designed and thought out . There's a big ma- made "lake" in the rear that can be enjoyed from the patio in warmer weather. The food was quite good, and tries hard to be adventurous and non-pedestrian; maybe they're trying a little TOO hard to be trendy, and should stick with some of the basics, BUT what I did have was quite good.
