They are a first rate restaurant with attentive service. Great for a quiet business lunch or pre-Symphony dinner.

It's a shame that this restaurant/bar can't be at the same high level of quality as the hotel in which it resides. The hotel is absolutely first rate...great staff, lovely rooms, etc..
However the Trumpet Bar is another story. I was told they would be serving food until 11:00PM, and so planned to eat after my work. When I arrived, I was told they stopped around 9:30PM. I then asked if there was any way they could find some food since it was my only option at that point. They brought me a menu, but when several other people inquired about food, the server said that no food was being served, and that included me. This is not the first time this has happened, and is why I checked earlier in the day to make sure there would be food until 11:00PM. I don't know if they're all confused, or just dishonest. They need to take a lesson from the excellent hotel management team and get new restaurant management.

As always I made my reservation through Oepn Table but received a call from the restaurant to confirm the reservation. I was unable to call back so when we arrived we were told that we could sit in either the bar or outside. We chose outside and even though we had blankets and a heater, it was not comfortable, due to wind, however the noise level outside was much better than we noticed in the dining room.

Key lime pie was outstanding and the restaurant is convenient to the Segerstrom complex but we will not be going back.

Featured French Onion soup was served lukewarm, greasy and poor taste. Salad greens were not fresh and poorly constructed. But the wine was expensive.

We had a great experience here -- top to bottom. Graduation brunch with 10 people ranging from grandparents to toddler. Bright, airy dining area. Manager went out of the way to give us a large table to ourselves (on relatively short notice). Service was attentive and professional. Food was well-prepared and presented and menu selections were varied enough for all tastes in our party.

When you do it right the first time you don't need to have a review but I feel it is my privilege to let everyone know how fantastic it is to go to a restaurant that does it exactly right! So if you are looking for the best date place or take a friend to dinner place search no more you have arrived at your destination. The Silver Trumpet!

Our first dinner at the Silver Trumpet and we will definitely return! The overall experience was excellent and the timing perfect to catch our 7:30 show. We both opted for the 3 course meal - one with wine pairing and the designated driver without. Everything was perfect and unique. Our server Lala was a delight! I would highly recommend this restaurant and will return again. Oh and if you are seeing a show, they validate your parking next door which we did not know, so that will save you $12 on parking!

One of the best secrets near south coast plaza. You can have a wonderful dinner with creative cocktails and walk to the theater or south coast plaza and your parking is comped. We eat there every time we attend a play. Saw Fiddler on the Roof this week and had a delightful dinner before hand. I am not sure why every theater goer does not eat here and park for free.

Had the lamb chops but flavor of the meat was completely disguised by some spice/condiment that was used on chops. Had previously had same meal and it did not have spice/condiment and was much more flavorful.

Mother’s Day & theater event. The location to Segerstrom was great. Charcuterie plate was ok, cheers not explained. Slow service for a drink, decor is a bit random, Dinner overall was good all of our main courses were seasoned well, cooked well and delivered timely.

Everyone is entitled to a bad day, but the Silver Trumpet had more than a bad day on Mother's Day. Overwhelmed with an event, they were off for those of us in the dining room. My son had completely raw chicken tenders (not even sure how they could have been golden on the outside and raw on the inside). My other son's roasted heirloom potatoes were also raw. The worst of it was that they then tried to lie about the chicken tenders and brought out cooked and hot ones (30 minutes later) to show that we must have been mistaken. Luckily, I had a picture of my son's bite mark into a completely raw tender. When I confronted the manager/chef about the lie and asked to take a picture of the one he was trying to pawn off as ours, he couldn't run back to the kitchen fast enough. Bad choice.

The Open Table reservation was misleading in the sense that when I made the reservation, at no time did Open Table or the restaurant mention that it was solely a Mother's Day Brunch at $70/head with tax and service charge $87.50/ head and bottomless mimosas were extra! Really???. This was way over our budget, the restaurant had a rating of $$, we were expecting to pay $50/ head tops! Not to mention we were asked to leave by 12 noon because there was another seating. It was Mother's day, we had my 85 year old Mother we us, who I did not want to upset so we just went along like everything was ok. Needless to say I am very upset.

Ambiance very nice. Servers quite friendly. Enjoyed Sunday brunch, however, buffet line didn’t not progress well and patrons waited an uncomfortable amount of time to receive made to order omelets, waffles etc. On that same thread, drinks from the bar took forever to arrive. When I pay a premium for dining, I expect timeliness.

Salad was good, raviolis had no flavor on their own but the sauce was nice. Seemed a bit expensive for 4 raviolis. our waiter was phenomenal and took care of us when our main entree came out too early. Would come again but would try something different that seems more appropriate for the cost.

From the very beginning, great getting greeted as we walked in, all the staff from the maître d’, to our excellent waiter, Mitchell And the wait staff (gentleman that served water and bread)Just superior service. We had 2 short rib dinners which were excellent and suggested by our waiter; my daughter’s scallop dinner was also excellent and Desert-also suggested by Mitchell- the flan-Simply scrumptious. I also drink quad espressos on a daily basis And my espresso was fabulous. They served warm milk for my daughters coffee also a Very nice added touch.

We've enjoyed the bar in the past but this was our first time dining. We enjoyed Easter brunch (four in party). Brunch was wonderful: good selection of typical breakfast faire such as made to order omelettes, chicken n waffles, hash browns plus salmon, cod, roast beef, lamb, pasta, sliders, and more desserts than you can possibly eat. Wait staff were on point, friendly and attentive as they kept our bottomless mimosas full. What I enjoyed equally was the price. Most brunch spots up their price for major holidays, not Silver Trumpet! The price was very reasonable. Highly recommend enjoying The Silver Trumpet.
