Ysidora pays homage to the Mission's matriarch Ysidora Forster, and invites guests to relax, unwind and indulge in authentic Spanish flavors in a contemporary setting. Enjoy wood fired grilled seafood, hot and cold tapas, local meats and seasonal, locally sourced produce. San Juan Capistrano's moderate climate mimics that of Spain's, making for a perfect match of culinary offerings. The bar offers Spanish wines and Spanish influenced cocktails that honor Spain's olives and legendary gin and tonics.

    It was a rainy MLK day. Not crowded. Cheeseburgers were yummy! Caesar salad was on the plain side. We also had “Pan con tomate” 👍🏼👍🏼 everyone seemed satisfied with their drinks. It was a close 5⭐️ Will go back!

    This was a nice treat. Great food. The bar is a great setting and worth going for drinks. I would go again. Two issues I had with this restaurant. First, it is connected to a hotel and there is no self park. It is a $10 valet fee plus tip. I was not counting on that. Also, it is not clear but there is not table service in the bar.

    Hostesses were not at all accommodating and borderline rude. They were going to send us away… we had to negotiate our way to a table in the bar which was empty at 5pm that was being held for a 7:15 reservation. The restaurant is losing money with the current staff. Our waitress was knowledgeable and very sweet and we made every effort to relinquish our table by 7pm but the waitress told us not to worry about it, because there were several vacant tables available in the bar.

    We reserve to celebrate our anniversary. We expected a quiet setting, but unfortunately a large party of 20+ people took over the restaurant area and the loudness was unbelievable. The food was ok. Not much to choose from the menu as main entrées. Spanish dishes but more “tapas” options should be available. Thank you for the servers who were outstanding on making us feel pleased.

    The establishment, hotel restaurant, is still requiring employees to wear a mask! It is a very loud venue and it is difficult to hear especially when you can’t see the server or hostess mouth while they are wearing a mask! The service was fine, but the food was marginal and over priced. We ordered a steak medium, and it was delivered rare. No accommodation offered. Ordered an extra dirty Titos martini at the bar, which was served sans olives because “no one was available to retrieve the olives in the basement”! Beautiful venue, but over priced and less than average cuisine!

    We own restaurants and we’re impressed with the level of service at the restaurant, however we had one complaint with the bar. Prior to our being seated with a reservation, we waited sitting at the bar for 10min without anyone saying a welcoming, “hello” or even acknowledging us at all. Finally we were asked if we wanted something after a awkward 10m or so. Besides that we enjoyed our first time experience at this restaurant.

    Check your bill. We were a party of 6 and a 20% gratuity was added but we weren't told, perhaps it's on the menu in fine print. Fortunately, we caught it before we left and removed the tip we were going to add, which was more than 20%.

    I found the menu to be very limited. And the dessert menu very very limited. Apparently they were short staffed because it took a very long time to get anything from the kitchen. The waitress was lovely and very accommodating as for the entire staff. One thing I would have liked to have had was complimentary parking for someone coming in for a meal. It was very busy in town yesterday and hard to find parking outside of the hotel

    This was a Christmas Eve fixed menu which I thought was good as far as food quality but not worth the price. I would’ve preferred to have choices from their regular menu than what was served which was either short ribs or shrimp/scallops.

    What a beautiful place !the menu has improved since I came here several months ago. We enjoyed a fantastic night celebrating a friend’s bday and had the most delish appetizers we all shared. Brought a bottle of wine from home ( cork fee is $25) while others loved the house made margaritas. Looking forward to coming back for Sunday brunch.

    The food is not good at all. Ordered the Octopus Tapa and it looked like it had been sitting out for a while. You can tell it was prepared hours before. Not tasteful and and bland. The Patatas Bravas were terrible. Prorates were hard and not cooked all the way. They were definitely not Patatas Bravas. The sauce was bland and barely any taste. Patatas Bravas are suppose to have some crisp and slightly spicy sauce. The server was nice and attentive. No issue with the service staff. It is strictly the food. They need to change it or else I don’t see this place standing a chance. Which it’s too bad for a place with a nice ambiance.

    A few other mentions.... their paper menu is printed in such tiny font, bring your magnifier! The font is the tiniest font I've ever 'not' seen. Also, the server was well informed, excellent. We had no issue with the hostess, waiter, servers. The FOOD is just a huge thumbs down! The food needs to be vastly improved, or the locals who live nearby will not be returning. The hotel guests will eat and leave and there must be a lot of them to keep this restaurant serving this below par food; the locals will go elsewhere! Shame, as it's a nicely appointed interior. My Shirley Temple drink came and the entire glass was crushed ice. There was probably one teaspoon of Grenadine in the drink; shaved ice and spritz water. You have to watch literally everything food wise here, as I am certain they have a ton of food returned, remade. It's just big thumbs down food wise.

    The food was BLAND! I wouldn’t call this a Tapas restaurant, it was more Mexican without any flavor. I told the server but she didn’t seem to care. Overall, the hotel grounds were beautiful but skip the restaurant or you’ll be very disappointed. Also, very expensive.and very loud.
