To start off they had no bread. A very limited menu. Had reservations but all tables were taken next to heaters.Service was very slow.

Very convenient when you're staying at the hotel. The menu is limited, but the food is solid. The service was relaxed but still very professional. I dined there twice: once by myself and once with a guest. James was my server both nights and made my/our experience really pleasant (even when we stayed past closing time - sorry!)
Morning coffee is surprisingly good, too!

We had made reservations for a special birthday brunch and even chose to stay at the hotel. Once we were seated we learned brunch had been canceled. Our whole trip was planned around this and felt this should have been stated more clearly on the website. It really put a damoer on our staycation we had planned.

Their website is not current and they no longer serve bottomless mimosas and bloody Mary’s. That was only reason for choosing this place. The food was not good my turkey burger was plain and gross. I took one bite and did not eat it. The manager removed from Bill. My friend had a seared ahi salad and it was small ahi portion and the dressing was awful. I had two mimosas but only paid for 1 after manager took 1 off Bill and we were made aware they weren’t bottomless. I ordered a cocktail with sparkling wine and Chanmbord liquor and that was really good. So I hade two mimosas one cocktail and shared side of fries with my friend. The bill was $63 and we left $13 tip. So spent $79 on fries, cocktail and friend had her salad with 3 mimosas. Not happy with the value or overall experience.

Lovely setting. Could not deliver on their reservations or food. 10-15 minutes to get seated. 30 minutes for food to arrive. I had a meeting to attend, so they gave it to me to go. Cappuccino, they ran out of whole milk, so they used a mix of cream, much too heavy for cappucino. How can they run out of whole milk during a holiday weekend? Lovely views and outdoor seating area. So disappointed. Had to eat my food cold, after my meeting. :(

We had heard good things about this restaurant. However, they were not ready to re-open. They should have waited until they were. Their menu on the website read that they were serving Chilean Sea Bass, Lamb, etc. They had a limited menu that did not include their main dishes. They didn't have a dessert chef either. I will say that their bacon wrapped dates were very yummy and so was the Fig Fashion. I think the experience would have been better had they waited and prepared before re-opening. I'm not sure we'll come back with so many good restaurants out there.

Brunch Mimosas were good. I think their brunch menu needs some help but overall what I ordered was good. I did ask them to remove some items and add something else. The place was pretty empty when we showed up so it was quiet during out 2 hours there.

The Silver Trumpet is lovely and I generally enjoy the food very much. The fixed price dinner though was just okay. Selection left something to be desired and the price was a little much for what we had. Recommendation to self: check menu before hand on holidays if coming in future.

Easy access following concert performances
at the Segerstrom. Promptly seated by friendly staff. Enjoyed the stuffed date appetizer. Both myself and husband had a seafood entre: generous portions. Shared berry crumble dessert which was plenty for sharing. Extensive wine list included bottles from Spain which we enjoy.

Very pleasantly surprised! The food and service were wonderful! I ordered the salmon, which I usually hesitate to do at all but the finest restaurants as it is usually overcooked and dry. I ordered it medium rare as I always do and it was absolute perfection! I wouldn’t hesitate to eat here again. My only complaint would be that the lighting was a bit bright for dinner.

I have dined at the Silver Trumpet many times prior to seeing a show at Segerstrom Hall. Unfortunately, last night we arrived for our 6:15 p.m. reservation. We were seated immediately. It took a while for us to get our drinks. The unfortunate part is that we never received our meals. By 7:40 pm, we said we had to go as our show started at 8 p.m. My husband stayed behind to pay the bill while my friend and I headed over to the theatre. The restaurant comped our drinks and my husband's salad to try to soften the experience. The people in the table next to us didn't receive their food either. I realize that there are times when a restaurant receives more guests than expected, so I will probably come here the next time we see a show. I will just ask to be served promptly instead of thinking that 1 1/2 hours enough time to be served. Their food is delicious and our waiter was very nice. Just a sad experience.

This restaurant provides free parking if you are having dinner there and then going to the Segerstrom Center. That’s the only reason to go. The service was good and the restaurant looks good but the food was bad . I am not that picky but this was just.... bad. I was actually surprised about this. I would not return even for the free parking.

The restaurant was lovely, and the food was excellent. The pricing is on the high side, but the fixed price 3 course menu was a good value. Atmosphere on Saturday night was quiet, which is what I was looking for, and service was excellent. No problem getting to 8:00PM show at South Coast Rep following a 6:00PM reservation.

Super cool atmosphere. Great people watching spot. Our server was outstanding. Always there right when we needed her. The two of us shared three appetizers, the ahi poke which was scrumptious and a generous serving. The stuffed mushrooms were hot and flavorful and the charcuterie board had a nice selection of cheeses (it just could have been a little more). Anyway, we enjoyed it and decided to bring our spouses back for a nice dinner. Thank you.
