Cedar Creek continues to be a favorite restaurant in San Juan Capistrano. On the majority of days when weather permits, dining on the patio is perfect. The historic San Juan Capistrano Mission is a walk across the street and from the patio, one can see the remnants of the church which was destroyed by the earthquake of 1812. Both the grilled salmon and the salmon-spinach salads are favorites. Many main dish salads, sandwiches and entrees are available. We dine here about 3-4 times a month and we have yet to be disappointed. Don't miss their famous coconut cake with ice cream or the fruit lush; both strawberry and peach when in season...large enough to share!
Our get-together at Cedar Creek Inn was great, as is every experience at this wonderful restaurant. The food, service and ambience can't be beat. The decorations are magnificent!
Lovely location and ambiance. Food was just okay.
Always love the Cobb salad. Our waiter, Reuben, was very entertaining and we got very good service. Will be back.
The food is always fantastic and the service was outstanding.
The bread pudding is to die for and the meals are great. We use it often as a midpoint meeting place when we drive up from San Diego to see Orange County relatives.
We were seated before the table settings were complete, had to ask for additional settings. Our waitress seemed overwhelmed, we had to repeat requests. Also , had to ask for her to check the bar for our cocktails. The food was very good as always, and the restaurant is beautiful. We will go back.
Ruben was our waiter and is fantastic he always kept an eye to make sure our ice tea was always full. To us a big deal! Lol it’s Resturant Week so for 20 dollars we had soup, the chicken Marcy salad and coconut cake. We sat outside and it was just so nice!! Thank you Cedar Creek always a hit!!!
Reuben is the BEST! Love this place!!!
Lacks service and food prices too high !
Go else where!
I’ve even contacted the manager she really didn’t give crap what I had to say!
One of our favorite places! Good atmosphere and great good. Love the coconut cake!
Kind of a half way drive for friends from Huntington Beach and San Diego. Friendly service and a nice warm fire on a chilly day. Just delightful.
Great waitress, serve a little slow because of some large groups in the restaurant. Surprised to be charged for birthday dessert.
I took a friend for lunch at the Cedar Creek Inn on a weekday. We had reservations which I am glad we did as it filled up quickly. I ordered the Seafood Salad which was excellent. My friend ordered the French Dip sandwich which she said was good. The service was very good.
The only complaint I have is that it was very noisy. Perhaps it seemed noisier than usual because a large party were seated close to us. However, my friend said that the noise level was always that loud.
Other than the noise, I really liked the Cedar Creek Inn. I am going back for the Seafood Salad!
Our server, Emma, was very personable and helpful with the menu. Sorry to hear that you do not have carrot cake on the dessert menu anymore.
This was the first time for a party of four. I was called ahead of time by the staff to ascertain if I wished to sit outside or inside. I chose inside. Two of us arrived and we were immediately escorted to the bar area with rather small tables and an all together small area for "inside" dining. When finished I ventured past the entrance area and found a nice dining area they called the "Main Dining Room" in full swing of many tables in use and a few that were not. I expressed my displeasure at not being told of or shown the other facilities which, of course I would have chosen. Please be careful when you make your reservations that you wish the outside or the main dining room and not the cramped bar area.
Delightful. Met a friend coming south from LA. Easy freeway access
Favorite spot, service outstanding, beautiful setting, consistently honest and well-prepared fare. Been coming to Cedar Creek in San Juan regularly for seven years and have never had a bad meal or experience.
Always a tried and true favorite. Great staff and ambiance.
We went to dinner on Sunday evening, ....staff was overbooked, food was slow, Bread came After entrees, server worked Very hard, did good job, but was scrambling to keep up with entire room he served..... when bill came, we noted prices were somewhat higher than menu, and when we inquired, prices were redone properly, and apologies given...(..we were told the computer was still set for Valentines Day prices. ) So, ....that means you were overcharging diners from Thursday to Sunday.....Shame on you..... I can not recommend your restaurant to my friends...
The food was excellent and our waiter Javier was very attentive and very fun. So was the server that kept replenishing our ice tea. I didn't catch his name, but he was really funny and we enjoyed our afternoon immensely.
Cedar Creek is always a good choice. Their been is varied and send to have something for everyone. Their sandwiches and salads are delicious, and their wait staff is pleasant.
Our favorite place for the seven years we have been in San Juan. Food, service, and ambience is consistently top drawer. Could not recommend it more highly.
We enjoyed our meal. Made a last minute reservation on Open Table for a Friday night and was easily accommodated. Staff was courteous and attentive. Food was very good. Comfortable outside dining area with fireplace. Based on this experience would recommend it for almost any occasion.
Great food and service.
Food was excellent. We had scampi, prime rib, and sea bass for entree’s. Warm coconut cake and vanilla ice cream for desert. We enjoyed our meal very much. Service was very good as well. We will be dining here again soon.
Great food and excellent service
Great service. Food was wonderful...coconut cake to die for❤️
We went on Valentine’s Day. The food was delicious And service great. We had a server who was in training. She did a great job.
Lovely Valentine’s Lunch with the hubby. Our halibut was tasty and the chocolate ganache dessert was rich and decadent. Had a cozy table by the fireplace. Great food and ambiance!
Medium rare salmon was prepared just right.
High quality, fun experience with good ambiance and a reasonable price point
Great food. Great service. I overall love this place.
Had a great dinner with friends (6 of us) , but were sat at a table that was meant for 4! No other tables available even though reservations were made well ahead of time. Still a great place to dine.
Great evening with friends. Food was delicious! Great ambiance! We'll be back.
Always a nice place with good food to go to. Patio is very inviting and comfortable dining
Wonderful time, had salads and they were perfectly served.
Great atmosphere. Sat outside on the patio. Waitress Michelle was very knowledgeable.
I dine often at Cedar Creek Inn in SJC and the birthday dinner I reserved recently for a friend was a happy success. The service and the food is always superior. The atmosphere is always pleasant. While we requested patio seating it was a cold evening when we arrived and the staff happily accommodated our request to move to an inside table, even though they had already brought us menus on the patio. We'll definitely be back soon!
Enjoyable experience as always... Relaxing and unhurried dining.
