It is a beautiful room. When we went in we were the only people in the entire room. So you would think the service would be great. At best it was average. Bothers me to pay $15.00 for an average martini. I drink them all the time so I know a good one and rarely pay that price. $3.00 to split a caesar salad seems a little nit picky to me. In the end the food was quite good. Not sure I would return.
Great service and an excellent meal make our anniversary special. James and the staff made us feel at home.
We were the only two people in the restaurant, so of course it was quiet. We don't understand how they can stay in business.
Both the salmon and the scallops were very good.
What a fun bar and elegant restaurant for our evening out.
The staff is so friendly and attentive.
We had the bolignese and it was delicious.
Flan for dessert and it was very creamy. The raspberries that came with were the sweetest I have ever had.
Definitely an A+ all around.
Great Sunday breakfast spot. Food was awesome 👏. Will be back soon.
Lovely restaurant in boutique hotel. Both inside and outside seating comfortable and classy. Breakfast was fabulous, with a generous helping of dungeness crab highlighting their Eggs Benedict. Service was competent and friendly.
I’ve been previously and it was a great dining experience. This time around, service was not the best. One of my colleagues food was not cooked all the way. Food items did not arrive at appropriate times.
The lamb was good. Maybe this was a one off situation. We were a group of four and did not have an ideal dining experience.
Expensive for what you get. Food not great. Tip was automatically charged for our small party, which I dont remember seeing and we almost tipped twice for very bad service. It could be that our waitress didnt care because she was going to get her tip regardless. She ignored us most of the time, served us cold food, seemed tipsy, and served us wrong drinks. She only had one other table to attend to but they seemed to be her bffs as she spent most of her time chatting with them and taking selfies.
We wont be back.
As a former chef and "foodie", I was disappointed with my dining experience here. I had something to do in South OC so i researched "best restaurants in OC" and Silver Trumpet was one of the 2 highest rated brunches. The setting was very nice. The menus sounded really good and contains a lot of upscale ingredients. The execution though was a bit pedestrian. I asked if the omelettes were"french style" and very soft and moist on the inside. I was told yes. i ordered a Lobster omelette, It looked nice but for my was far from soft and moist on the inside, It wasn't "bad", but it was far from "great". My son ordered the crab Benedict and the eggs were more"soft boiled" than Poached. He did"t want to complain but after eating them i wish he would have told me earlier cause i would have returned them. His girlfriend ordered smoked salmon and she was very happy with that. Getting back to my sons Benedict and my omelette, the accompaniment was stated as fruit salad and it was just basically not very ripe melons with a token piece of watermelon and pineapple. IDK, Maybe this is considered great for this neck of the woods but i was very underwhelmed.
We felt that the atmosphere was outstanding, the service was great, although for the restaurant style he could have been dressed more appropriately, but the food was way too garlicky and spicy. However, we are older people, and spicy food does not agree with us. Therefore, all in all, we wasted our money on the food we chose....
Really enjoyed our brunch at the Silver Trumpet. Our server, James, was great, even though he seemed to have too many tables. We'd like to return for dinner sometime.
Walking in we thought it was more upscale than it turned out. The only thing I saw that looked cheap was the patio tables everything else was very nice. I had the rack of lamb, very good! The cocktails we ordered were unique and tasty.
We had a great experience eating here. The restaurant was cozy and romantic. The food was excellent! We highly recommend the filet mignon! The server, Rebecca, was so nice and on top of it. My husband and I had tickets to see The Phantom of the Opera. Our server was watching the time so we wouldn't be late to the show. Overall we made a nice memory and highly recommend this place!!
Everything was lovely. Except the giant beetles. One flew into the butter and got stuck.
The Chilean sea bass was cooked to perfection even the grilled vegetable accompaniment was amazing. My son’s medium rare steak cooked to order & lamb lollipops were also perfectly seasoned & cooked as well. Will be dining here next time we stay @ the hotel.
We go to the Silver Trumpet quite frequently, and it never fails to satisfy. We love the ambiance, the decor, and the food is always prepared very well. The staff is warm, welcoming, and know how to interact without being intrusive. I would recommend this establishment to anyone who wants a fine dining experience in a relaxed environment.
My dear friend Diane and I had never been to the Silver Trumpet. We chose it because it was a half way point for the two of us to meet in-person for the first time after working together for 15 years via telephone and email. It turned out to be the perfect spot ... so peaceful and serene. The welcome was very warm, the service was of the utmost, and the food delicious! We hope to meet there again. Thank you so much for making it a lovely occasion! Jenny
Great food. Good service. Very quiet on a Sunday evening. We had pre fixe. Excellent value. Highly recommend!
4 Went for brunch. Half were pleased with crab benedict and lox bagel dishes. Half were disappointed with Turkey panini and lobster omelet which was fishy & cold. Nice room, excellent service. They gladly replaced omelet.
Expensive. But a handy place to go when you are going to a voncert at Segerstrom. Parking is validated.
The Silver Trumpet is always a pleasure! Views onto a lake and lovely park from both the dining room and patio dining area, good menu choices including a fixed menu, and sometimes live music. Easy walk to the Segerstrom Center.
Great for pre theatre!
They are a first rate restaurant with attentive service. Great for a quiet business lunch or pre-Symphony dinner.
Always excellent service, Jorge always takes great care of us. The food never disappoints
Amazing!!! Loved the service, food, outdoor seating!!
Silver Trumpet is definitely a tucked away, secluded hidden gem
2nd visit to this location. Outstanding.
convenient location, very professional service staff and good food.
Lovely venue, great food and service - a tad pricey but worth it for a fun night out.
Nour provided thoughtful service. The food was excellent and the restaurant is quite beautiful. A lovely experience.
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.
Great spot for a nice meal. Quiet location. Easy access to park. Food is consistent and portions are reasonable.
Just o.k. Service was extremely slow. Could imagine atmosphere being delightful at night but don't think I'll be seeking it out anytime soon.
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.
Great service, food and atmosphere!
I highly recommend it to anyone! Nice place to visit before a show at Segestrom.
We love this restaurant. The food, the service is always spot on. It is a very beautiful place.
Great place for Prom dinner!
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.
