Pierside Kitchen + Bar
Kitchen closes daily from 2:30pm-3:30pm.
Our Patio Tables are non-reservable and sat on a first come first serve basis. Waitlist held at the Host Stand daily.
Dogs are welcomed on the Patio Only.
Food was great, location was perfect, and staff was attentive and friendly. They made a very sweet accommodation for us so that we could dine together as a larger group despite having our dog with us. Would definitely return!
Our server was very attentive, and courteous. He turned down the volume on the speaker behind my head. Much appreciated. He also appeared to really want to see that we enjoyed our meal. We did!
Liked Taco Tuesday!
Excellent seating outside looking right out at the sunset and the pier. Dogs are allowed on the outside portion of the restaurant so be aware that they are around and sometimes want you to pet them, etc. Great cocktails! Great service, and food is tasty!
We showed up at our reservation time and the restaurant was completely closed and locked up for a renovation.
Would have been nice to know that our reservation was not actually valid. Upon arrival, we discovered the restaurant was closed for remodel and had to find another restaurant at the last minute.
It was closed and despite getting two confirmations we showed up to a close restaurant. Staff were inside working but not answering the door. So strange!
We booked our reservation weeks before only to discover the restaurant was closed for renovations when we showed up on Valentines Day.
It was closed for two weeks! We didn't find out till e got there at the reserved time! Very disappointing.
They weren’t open. They were remodeling but never mentioned that when I made the reservation.
Despite the website and open table app saying otherwise, Pierside was closed for renovations when we arrived with our out of town visitors. Not Profressional.
Table was ready when we arrived
Bottomless mimosas were refilled nicely
Food was good
Best place to eat beach front at the SC pier. Go there. - you'll enjoy.
service was terribly slow. They were closing the next day for a renovation and seemed to be out of everything. Very little vegan options.
Good food, drinks, location, service!
Wonderful location overlooking San Clemente Pier.
My birthday dinner was wonderful thank you!
Great Brunch spot with a lovely view if you get a seat on the patio. Good menu options, great quality.
Great food! It was NYE, so service was a bit slower than we've experienced here before. Very noisy but again I think that was NYE related. Overall a Very good experience and we will be back.
It's a quaint and busy little restaurant with young waiters, across the street from the ocean view. Indoor and outdoor seating. For brunch, I had Short Rib Omelette that was delicious.
Confirmed our dinner reservation on Monday via text and via telephone directly with Pierside for a special family dinner on Christmas Eve.
Arrived for our reservation to find that the restaurant was closed. No additional contact from the restaurant. Not sure if they have closed permanently or just early that night. At minimum they should have called on 12/24/2019 to let me know OR later this week to apologize.
Proceed with caution....this is typically a pretty good restaurant.
Such a great spot. We had 5 people and they seated us right in view of the ocean. Great service. I got the burger, the others got fish Nd chips. They looked great and a veggie dish was great too.
I recommend if you want a nice cozy spot with American cuisine moderately priced with a view. This is it.
Food and service very good. Would request a table outside next time. The acoustics were not good as we had to talk very loudly as there was so much noise.
Good food with good service in an excellent spot. The view is amazing and the food/drinks are reasonably priced.
Cute restaurant with an amazing view of the pier! Food was delicious and decently priced. Cocktails are amazing as well (try the Pier Pressure - voted San Clemente's best!). The service was excellent, and they had a live band playing light music.
Fun place to go and hang out with family or friends
Go food and good service
Great brunch spot with nice view of the ocean. Our server could not have been sweeter. Definitely recommend!
Delishious food! Great bloody Mary's, their seafood chowder is divine, and that avocado toast, WOW. Plus, gorgeous setting.
Pretty good place near the San Clemente Pier. Steak & eggs brunch item nicely done
Four of us enjoyed a bottomless mimosa brunch. The weather was fantastic, the food delicious, and the service wonderful!
The views of the ocean sunset are the draw for this place. We enjoyed trying something new and were pleased with our evening. Service was a bit slow even to get drinks but our waitress was warm and intelligent. It's also possible to eat healthy here (steamed artichoke) while enjoying live music (that girl's voice has the purity of Dolly Parton's sound). We will go back.
Son and daughter in law in town
Service was outstanding! Bottomless mimosas on point
Made reservation but when arrived it was closed. Should be someway to tell Open Table they were closed
Nice casual place right near the Ocean and pier in San Clemente. The fish and chips were mediocre but the other 3 entrees were good.
Great seat by the ocean. Good food and drinks.
Parking came be hard to find after 11am
Met a friend and her 3 year old for breakfast with my 5 month old puppy. My request for a dog friendly table was accommodated, he was given a bowl of water and we had a lovely breakfast. Only bummer was that their coffee machine was broken. Learned that a new o e had been ordered but would think someone would have bought a tea kettle and a few coffee presses and kept the morning brew flowing.
Cody our waiter was great. He was promote, respectful and friendly. We will come back because of him!
I had the beet salad with greens and fennel with Ahi Tuna. My husband had the burger with sweet potato fries. We split roasted brussel sprouts which were great too. It's a great restaurant in San Clemente. We will be back.
My favorite place in San Clemente, good food and service.
Great place to relax and have lunch. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend Pierside kitchen
