                            This restaurant is a hidden gem. It is the perfect dining spot anytime and especially before a Segerstrom event. It is within a short walking distance of the theaters. We ordered the rack of lamb and it was best one I’ve ever had. The large portion was prepared perfectly resting on risotto. We were celebrating my birthday and they treated us to a choice of dessert. The apple cobbler a La mode was delicious.

                            Overall, our experience was good, but the menu they have online is SERIOUSLY outdated and the average entree price is much higher now. Most of what they show on the dinner menu is no longer available. The restaurant wasn't very busy (even on Mother's Day) and so was a quiet alternative to most restaurants that have gotten so noisy that it's hard to have a conversation at the table. Definitely a significant plus. They validate self-parking and the restaurant has a separate entrance from the hotel lobby.

                            Staff are great , very nice ambience. But food is just not special , you could be at Claim Jumper and expect same meal.

                            Delicious food great service. Would've liked to see more options at the carving station. They had steak and lamb lollipops. I like the classics prime rib Turkey and ham. For the price they could've thrown in a free mimosa or two. Desserts were amazing.

                            The best offering on the dinner menu is their rack of lamb! It is so good and superior to any other restaurant's that we find it difficult to order anything else. The room is beautiful and relaxing, service very good and friendly.

                            Brandi, our waitstaff, was exceptionally attentive yet unobtrusive. Our dinner guests thoroughly enjoyed the seasonal cocktail menu along with the date appetizer. The lamb chops were perfectly cooked as requested and the most generous portion I have ever been served. The risotto was also a big hit, enjoyed by all.

                            When you walk in, the attention to detail is apparent. The food is the main attraction. Thankfully, the taste lined up with that! Some nice touches like the cute designs on the desserts. Our server was awesome. Elizabeth? Receipt says Chere. She was dark-haired and in her 20s. Also wonderful was the guy making the omelets. Both very personable. It’s pretty pricey, so I wouldn’t do this more than once or twice a year. Still, money well spent.

                            My group had an indoor seed with a beautiful view of the patio and courtyard. Our waiter did an excellent job and was very attentive even though he had responsibility for a much larger party in the other room. Food was very good but OpenTable said entrées were typically $30 and less. That was the main reason I chose it for our company dinner but we found out that only a couple of items were under $30. Most were $40-$50 and higher.

                            Beautiful restaurant, great service and great food. The Silver Trumpet is a great place for a romantic dinner or meeting place to gather with friends. I’ve been here for a before the theater dinner and most recently to celebrate a friend’s birthday in the patio area. Food is tasty and recommend this restaurant.

                            restaurant very nice and service good but food fair. Way too expensive for quality of food. Walking distance to the theatre a plus and validated parking.

                            Our expectations were very high and Silver Trumpet exceeded them! Silver Trumpet is now at the top of our list for dinner before theatre.

                            Everything was great. However they dropped the ball with my Caesar salad. It should not have been served. My date got just the opposite a great Caesar. My fault. I didn’t send it back

                            Good was ok-service was not. Despite telling our waitress that we were attending a matinee at the Center, she did not bring our order in a timely manner. Had to flag down a gentleman working there who brought our food over right away. Apparently it was ready all along. Place was not busy so don’t understand lack of service.

                            I brought my grandson and his fiancée to brunch before we attended a performance at Segerstrom Center. We had a very delicious relaxing brunch and the service was excellent. WE appreciated being able to park our cars at the hotel, enjoy brunch, go to the performance and walk back to pick up our cars. We will definitely do this again.

                            For the $, the service was a bit lacking - and the food was just okay. 4 scallops on top of what felt like an overcooked pile of bacon and potato dice for $41.00. Best part of the meal was the wine, ambience and location. Not sure I would return for dinner - maybe just cocktails.

                            The food and service were very good. We were a little disappointed that there wasn't a larger selection of vegetables since the steaks are a la carte. The Silver Trumpet is a great place to dine if you are attending a performance at any of the Segerstrom Center for the Arts venues. It is an easy walk across the street and they provide a validation for complimentary self parking.

                            We gave only 3 stars for ambience due to the temperature in the dining room. It was very chilly. Our server brought over a space heater which helped. However, it wasn’t powerful enough to warm the space. The overall ambience was lovely.

                            Really lovely place I hadn’t known was there. Great staff. Attentive. Food would have been a 5 except the steak and lamb did not come out medium rare, and closer to medium/medium well. Flavor was great. It was not a big enough deal to us to point it out, but service was so good I imagine they’d have fixed it immediately.

                            My friend and I enjoyed a light dinner before seeing a Cabaret performance in Samueli Theater at Segerstrom Center. It was a nice bonus to park our cars at the hotel, give dinner & then cross the street to the theater. We appreciate having validated parking with our dinner. We both enjoyed a delicious Cobb Salad. Service was excellent. I will be dining at Silver Trumpet again very soon.
