Manager was your responsible by not coming to the table after return of two bottles of wine. The food came out cold and the service was mediocre

I hate to have a somewhat negative review, but it is. I got the flat iron steak cooked to medium rare. There were portions that were absolutely raw, and most of it was very difficult to cut into. Very chewy and just an all-around poor steak. The carrots that came with both of our dishes were tough and not very flavorful. Our server, Lee, was outstanding. I wish I could recommend Silver Trumpet to a friend, but given the price and weak quality, I will not be doing so.

The food is pretty good and the drinks are great, but there is no attention to detail. Even though everyone was very nice, It seems like the manager does not understand how to manage and train the staff to provide the level of service you would expect from a nice restaurant. From dirty menus to stains on the table, it makes you wonder if the kitchen is clean. With a few small changes this place could be great, but I can’t say I’d be back anytime soon.

Unusual seating arrangement. We were first going to be seated next to a mom and baby, who were very close to us and felt awkward. Then decided a table further in. Not really a restaurant but for people who wanted a casual drink.

The menu very limited for lunch. Waitress was going to give us our bill and didn't ask if we would like anything else. We ask for a dessert menu. The dessert we choose was Pear Tart (like a bread pudding) with salted caramel ice cream. Ice cream serving was smaller than a ping pong ball. We love the location since we were going to a show at the Sergerstrom Theater and was able to make the short walk over. We will try again with the dinner menu . . . the jury is still out for a verdict.

Been here on many occasions, never disappoints. The lamb is superb, and the risotto is perfect. For dinner their prix fix menu is a really good deal. We were here to celebrate a birthday and it was just lovely. Can't wait to return!

The food was very good. The bread was very good. We got a tuna appetizer that was tasty. I had the Cobb salad and my husband had the salmon and both were enjoyable. The service was attentive and pleasant.

Our experience in the bar prior to eating was outstanding, especially with our server - Brandi. The disappointment came with both my scallops and my husband's fish as both were too salty on the outside. The big problem was with the coffee which was the color of weak tea and tasted like water. Our server brought us each a shot of expresso to fix our coffee and it did.

We had dinner before our Kenny G concert across the way. The restaurant has a cool contemporary vibe. The service is good but not great. Two of us had Chilean Seabass. It was fresh but very bland. I had a lemon slice with my water, so instead squeezed it over my fish & added salt & pepper. That helped! I’m surprised the chef didn’t season or do anything special with a nice fresh fish.

We visited Silver Trumpet before a performance at the Segerstrom PAC, and were both pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food, service and ambience. While we didn't visit the bar area, it looked like a very nice spot to meet for a drink with friends. We will definitely return and will recommend to friends.

The menu looked great. The 3 course meal was a good value. The soup and the bacon wrapped dates were wonderful. The main course salmon and lamb were a little over done and the salmon plate had a odd flavor with the Chards.

Dessert was fantastic! The service was a little off. Waitress was very nice, but would disappear for long periods of time. I think she had too many tables. Had to flag her down a few times, which I hate having to do.

I celebrated my husband’s birthday and the manager Mark and his whole team were absolutely amazing!!! They helped with all our needs, made sure all 24 guests were taken care of and assisted me with the whole surprise! My Husband was extremely happy with everything and every guest was greatly satisfied with the food and the service they got! I absolutely recommend to come to this place, it’s the best brunch spot in OC for sure! Not sure if the staff will see this review but want to take the time to say one more time THANK YOU to All!!!! ❤️🥳

The lamb was very good, however the scallops were very skimpy.
There were3 medium scallops preced at 41.00. Not a good value
The restaurant was very cold where we sat. Although we asked, it never warmed up.
Lastly, our table was changed after we were seated. The ”cold” table was where we were moved. Noone ever sat at the table while we were there even when we were told that there was another party coming.
