As always, a great meal, excellent cocktails and the best service. I've been coming here for years and have never been disappointed. I highly recommend.
Whenever I come back to San Clemente I have to go to Cedar Creek. One if my favorite restaurants.
Always enjoy Cedar Creek Inn. Food consistently good.
One of my faves in SJC. Lovely outdoor patio seating. Indoors is also lovely. Best thing on the menu: Cedar planked Salmon!
Wonderful lunch with our grandsons today. Excellent ahi tuna salads and delicious beef dips. Consistently appealing menu and excellent service. Thank you.
It was really enjoyable, food and service was great. I just think charging $3.50 each for 2 soda waters with lime is outrageous. We didn’t even have a refill! Our bill would have been much more reasonable if not for that😩
We came to San Juan Capistrano to celebrate our daughter’s bday. It is difficult to go out to restaurants because our grandbaby has severe allergies. Cedar Creek is always a great choice. They are so careful and always cook safely for our grandbaby. The manager was so helpful and caring. Thank You Jennifer
We asked when the bread was coming, we were told “it’s by request”, so we made the request then see a $1.00 charge for bread on the bill. What’s happening to decent restaurants no longer providing basic bread with entrees? Bad form in my opinion.
And we were sat next to a table of 8 or 9 who were very loud while numerous tables and booths sat were empty.
Our servers are always attentive!
Enjoyed lunch with a friend. I had the turkey, Brie, strawberry sandwich with a Caesar salad on the side. The sandwich was very good, but quite large! Took half home. My friend had the French dip which she said was delicious. Our server, Ruben, was attentive, friendly and funny. My only complaint was the table of a group of women who all had small dogs with them! They barked frequently, and if I had to be seated nearby I would have asked to be moved. And, I would also not have liked to be seated at that table after the group left! Who knows what they let behind! Too bad they allow dogs (except for service dogs) as that has spoiled it for us who frequent this restaurant.
Great Mango Curry Chicken Salad! Slow service, but good food.
When we first walked in they had a nice large outdoor patio with umbrellas shading all of it. We sat by the waterfalls and fireplace which was very nice. Our waiter was good. The food was only fair. I usually don't go for American style cuisine. The price was pretty normal for the area. The onion rings and coleslaw I liked. Our party had a salad and the crab cakes and they were not impressed with either one. The pastrami sandwich was good. I had a BLT. I just thought the cheese should have been sliced thicker and the aioli tasted too mayonnaisy with not enough flavor. I did not like the bread.
This is an excellent place to celebrate girlfriend's Birthdays! Our waiter Reuben was absolutely fabulous!
I am very much about service and he went above and beyond. Can't wait to come back.
Sitting on the patio was very nice, but I wish the food and service were better. We sat for a very long time before anyone took our order. I had the ahi salad. The greens and the dressing were fine, but the ahi was not. It had zero taste. I don't know if it was poor quality or seared for two long.
The best food Brest variety and the staff supberb!!
It was a good one. The food and service were excellent.
Always a delicious meal and a friendly, welcoming place.
Thanks to Reuben and the rest of the team.
I had their crab and scallop cakes with jalapeno tartar sauce which were wonderful. The sauce was spicy and a great complement to the cakes. They also came with a small Caesar salad, a perfect accompaniment
The service was very efficient, friendly and totally accommodating. I highly recommend this restaurant
Not enough servers on patio, 4 of us constantly without water, food not prepared correctly with no time to wait and fix it...... for the price I was disappointed. Been to Sunday brunch indoors and it was fabulous......what changed???
We were in San Diego and we were meeting people from Santa Anna. This was a great 1/2 way point to eat at and it's just off the freeway. It is good food at reasonable prices.
It was great as usual
Great gluten-free menu! Our waitress, Nora, was beyond amazing. My daughter has food allergies and she would double check everything. The kitchen was able to accommodate us and made a delicious birthday dinner!
Food is good
We ordered he French Dip and the bun was not cooked correctly and was very doughy! Not enough cheese either.
Loved it. Prime rib was delicious and don’t forget the coconut cake .
We made a reservation for the patio. It is simply lovely! They had live background music which added to the al fresco ambiance. Nice menu, good drinks and the apple sauce is to die for!
Great food great service as usual
The food was good, the patio lovely, and our server, Reuben, was charming and attentive. My friend and I meet for lunch here a couple times a year and will continue to do so because the place is so good.
Food was average, service was good.
Great food and service. Lots of variety in the menu. A bit pricey but we still thought it was worth it. Pretty generous servings. Garlic bread at beginning of meal was excellent.
Most amazing coconut cake!
We sat in the bar area, which was not crowded at all.. nonetheless the service was slow. My friend and I both ordered the turkey burger. It was dry with a grainy texture.. it tasted like a vege burger. The french fries were average. The meal was a disappointment.
The location is just across from the beautiful San Juan Capistrano Mission, so very charming views. The food is most excellent, large portions so I always split. The ambiance is so charming as well, outdoor patio has a big fireplace when the weather gets a little cooler. They have a warm coconut cake thats out of this world, and the staff is very friendly and attentive, even when its crazy busy.
Service was very warm and attentive. Good selection of wine by the glass allowed us to enjoy what we felt like. The food was good portions, prepared well, tasted great and served quickly.👍
Both my wife and I had the halibut which was incredible! Our server Tanya was the best.
Cedar Creek was great except for the fact that they did not have our reservation that we made on line with Open Table even though I did receive a confirmation number. If I ever use Open Table again I will call to confirm the reservation, but that of course just defeats the purpose of booking a reservation online. Cedar Creek did seat us very near to our reservation so it did not turn into a problem.
The ambience service the food the whole atmosphere five stars
Love sitting on the patio.
our favorite outdoor dining restaurant. Great food and service.
Have been here many times. Great place to meet old friends coming down from Anaheim area coming up from San Diego. Love the food and outdoor patio anytime of the year.
