This is now our third time coming here for Valentines Dinner and we have always enjoyed our visit and dining experience. We were celebrating our 1 yr engagement anniversary and waiter Ayoub was attentive and really was outstanding. This is definitely a place we plan to continue to come with a quality of food, service, care and attention to detail continues to be there, it’s a winner!

Silver Trumpet offered a delicious Prefix 3 course menu with or without wine pairings. Everything we ate was delicious especially the rack of lamb with thick succulent chops. We notified our server that we had a Segerstrom Performance to attend and he was most attentive to our needs. Silver Trumpet is my favorite place to dine when we have Segerstrom tickets. They will also validate your parking if you park in their parking structure.

Excellent, quick, and courteous service. The prix fixe menu was a good arrangement and the food was delicious, including bread and dessert. The restaurant is on the street directly behind the Segerstrom Center for the Arts so you can park once and go to both.

Wanted to love this place. Went for a nice dinner on a Tuesday prior to attending a theatre performance nearby. It is certainly Beautiful, modern, and a unique place. Before we were served our dinner we were thinking this could be a new favorite to add to our list. We arrived at 530pm to enjoy a drink and maybe an appetizer before our 6pm dinner reservation. The HH wine was decent but the HH appetizers were lack luster in our opinion so we stuck with just a glass of wine. Oh, just FYI...We were the only ones in the bar and the restaurant had one couple seated when we arrived and that didn’t change much even by the time we left. My husband ordered a New York steak after the server recommended their high quality steaks. Nothing about the steak seemed high quality. Nothing plump or special about it for sure except maybe the two side sauces they brought out to enjoy. The steak needed sauce. I on the other hand wanted a lighter meal and ordered an Australian white fish. I eat a lot of fish and this fish was terrible. Flash fried white fish ( I knew this going into the order) with skin on one side that could not be removed without scraping away most of the very thin fillet along with it. It was flavorless but thank heaven for the bed of puréed peas underneath the fish that gave some flavor. Sides are ala carte. We shared a scalloped potato casserole which had decent flavor but the potatoes were crispy not al dente as I would expect them to be. Needless to say we won’t be returning despite the beautiful ambience.

This place is terrific. We go before and after the theater for morning and matinee shows. The brunch is excellent and the free parking is very helpful.

Had a wonderful dinner with my colleagues. There were great pre-fixe menu options with wine pairing that was a great deal. The bacon wrapped dates were to die for, and the chicken was so delicious. Loved the ambiance and the service was great too. I definitely would go back.

We have eaten here a few times and have had delicious food and wonderful service!!..This time the food was great, but the service was TERRIBLE - EXTREMELY AND UNREASONABLY SLOW. Everything we ordered came after way too much time. The entree arrived 75 minutes after we arrived and we had told the waitress we had a concert to attend. We had planned 1 1/2 hours to eat, which has always worked great in the past at this restaurant....We will go there again for dinner, but do not want the waitress we had this last time.

Wonderful dinner of pan-seared scallops with artichoke slices over risotto. To die for.

Quite noisy restaurant--a bit uncomfortable. Our server was good. Our salad was just enough for dinner.

I have been coming here for many years for lunch and dinners before theater and business. Great spot to have a meal and a short walk over to the theater! Food is always good(and they change up the menu) and the service outstanding.

Very chic place. It wasn’t as busy as I thought it should be but the location is not visible. My friends I took Drive that area all the time but not that street and they thought it was just a hotel. It would be nice to have such a cool place near the water or more exposure.
