Expected more. The fish was overly fishy and salty. The burger was over cooked. Meh

As usual Sapphire did not disappoint! Had the special which was Lobster tails and it was delicious. I absolutely love their veggies they serve, always fresh. Food, view and service was wonderful!

Highly pretentious. Hostesses were overwhelmingly rude. I thought I was in high school again. I walked up, was ignored, had to speak up and let them know I had reservations. Rudely told me to wait outside-like where? I waited, a guy who must have been the front of house manager walked up to me like there was going to be a confrontation. ? I’m 5’3” and female, dressed like I’m in Hawaii with a nice skirt and summer top. Apparently the hostesses let him know there was a derelict awaiting a coveted table (over 50% of their tables were empty-hmm wonder why?). Was ignored until again I flagged someone down. The waiter chose not to tell me what the specials were so I had to change it once I overheard a waiter for another table rattling off a long list of things I was looking for but didn’t see on the menu.

Food was great however, kitchen and back of house staff are stellar but seriously if you don’t want to be judged for what you’re wearing or how you look by pathetic hostesses who think they’ve made it in life at their high school level jobs then maybe just wait to skip it. Life is too short for mean girls!

Lovely evening dining on the terrace. The service was excellent, the fish courses (we had salmon and halibut) were perfectly cooked, with a tasty combination of ingredients and beautifully presented. A very enjoyable dining experience.

This was our first time back since the restaurant was bought by another restaurant group. We've been going to Sapphire for over 8 years as we live in Pasadena and use to love and rave about everything that was Sapphire. Sadly, that won't be the case anymore.
Sapphire WAS our favorite restaurant. We won't be going back.

Nice to have an open air place to go to. Food is different from the original Vine Wine Country Cuisine in San Clemente. Not as carefully prepared. Clams, mussels and shrimp dish was overwhelmed by loads of cubed chorizo. Scottish salmon dish was pretty good. Salad was basically lettuce with a sprinkling of nuts & goat cheese....hardly any dressing. Kind of disappointing overall

I can't say enough great things about this place. They were kind enough to seat us on the patio per request, and we got stuck in LA traffic on the way down and they were also kind enough to seat the people meeting us. The food and service were fantastic. Definitely cannot wait to go back. The view is spectacular as well.

This was our first time back to Sapphire after a year. The service was very good, and the outdoor setting is very nice. But unfortunately we were disappointed in the quality of our food. I had the healthy scramble. The scramble was fine, but the melon in the fruit bowl had the appearance and taste that it was sitting in the refrigerator for awhile. My husband is very fond of the chicken sandwich, but this time he described the chicken as very dry and the fries overly dark.

We were here with a friend from LA. We wanted to show him a great place as we were here a few days prior to,this visit ( restaurant week).
Our waiter was rushed a bit and the noise level was ridiculous. A few table with loud chatting ladies.

We ordered off the special restaurant week menu. Our salad and tomatoes bisque was very good. The dessert was yummy as well. I enjoyed my cream brûlée and cleaned the dish. 2/3 Ribeye steaks were fantastic. Mine was terrible and should not have been served. It was 80 fat and sinewy. We mentioned to our waiter and he said , “oh sorry” Not the type of response we expected. I was hoping he would take to chef so no one else would let a steak leave the kitchen like mine. He did not. I should have taken a picture and posted however the other steaks were good and I decided to leave it.

Had we not visited Sapphire previously, we would never come back.
So let’s hope the team stays on top of their meat.

The waiter was unattentive. We had to keep searching for him to bring coffee etc. The hamburger was dry and the meat tasteless but very salty. We asked for no special sauce but it came with it anyway. The coffee was lukewarm. The fruit with my egg dish appeared and tasted old.
The venue, however, was very nice. Very attractive with comfortable seating.

We weren’t a bug fan of the appetizers (the one with goat cheese but it’s not called goat cheese:(. And the bread was cut too thick and not toasted properly. But my steak was amazing. Service was very good. Thanks

My husband and I came for my birthday & because of the “restaurant week” menu & we were not disappointed! Great cocktails, the tomato bisque was fantastic, we loved our entrees -the halibut & the steak -, topped off with delicious desserts. We had a great time and definitely ate too much because we didn’t want to miss a single morsel! And I wish I could remember our server’s name -he did an excellent job!
