Silver Trumpet Restaurant & Bar Ratings and Reviews
Had an amazing time with a group of friends to celebrate Christmas .The place look sooo festive ,staff was right on point beginning with the hostess and ending with the GM Mario . Very professional and knowledgeable servers amazing food and delicious cocktails .Made us feel very welcomed
From start to finish consistently bad service. The server was very inattentive. The whole feel of the restaurant was negative. Many of the people sitting around us were not being served and ignored. The food was bland and unexciting. In general a poorly run restaurant with terrible food.
What a great place to get together with my friends .The place is decorated for holidays and is just magic .Everyone is smiling here and just makes you feel very welcomed .Delicious cocktails at the Bar ,amazing wine list and well prepared food .Cant wait to go back
Thanksgiving buffet was delicious, fresh and organic. Patio dining overlooks lake but currently there is construction next door so not the best view. One of the chefs visited our table to check on us—very nice. Waiter was friendly but not as attentive as I’d like, given the price paid. For example, no cream provided when coffee brought to the table and had to wait quite a while for him to appear again to ask for it. Was not that busy then, so not sure why better service not provided. But overall, very friendly and helpful wait staff.
Setting: beautiful. Parking/location: easy and convenient. It was a very quiet and not crowded Sunday brunch which made it easy to talk and catch up. My friends and I had a few issues though. One of our side orders did not arrive so we reminded our waiter. No apology. It came and was dropped off by someone else. When we received our check, we were charged twice for that order. No apology. Things happen and I understand but when we are the only diners at the restaurant why can’t you do a good job? It wasn’t busy at all! We saw gratuity was already added on our check... maybe our waiter didn’t try hard because they knew they were going to get a good tip regardless. Pathetic.
This is a great place to eat when you go to a show at the performing arts center. They have wonderful food and wine and great service, as well as a prix fixe menu which is a great value. The servers are excellent and they were able to accommodate my change requests (food allergies and preferences). I also got a free birthday dessert which was really good (toffee cake).
They create a very welcoming atmosphere. I will definitely be back!
Caesar Salad was made with older lettuce. Lamb chops so tough barely edible. In the past the food had been fairly good , but this last occasion was just ok. Great location for theater so we will try again. I hope the chef has better food suppliers the next time.
What an amazing night ,started in the Bar with some amazing cocktails ,one served in a copper pineapple mug ,very impressive . Moved to the dining area and had the best service in Orange County .The GM/Wine Director recommended some delicious wines ,we liked the fact that he never pushed expensive wines like most of the restaurants do .Very knowledgeable staff and very attentive .Short rib was melting in your mouth and very flavorful ,our guests Lamb and NY strip steak were done to perfection .Great experience cant wait to go back with our friends.
Decent food, wonderful server, but it wound up being a bit expensive for a meal that was good enough, but not particularly memorable. We went to see a play at South Coast Rep, so it was extremely convenient. They validate parking, so you don't have to pay to park at the show.
Unfortunately the restaurant was not up to it's usual level of excellence. Seat at a table for 6 our group of four found it difficult to talk across the table. The food was not prepared to order and the service was slow supposed due to a problem in the hotel. We had to skip dessert to make our concert and arrived as they were giving the two minute warning. The manager did comp our meals only after I seriously complained.
The salad was excellent. The scallops and shrimp were done well, not over cooked. The rack of lamb was seasoned well, a bit much salt but very tasty. There were 8 ribs with quite a lot of meat on them. The risotto was one of the best we've had. One of the diners found it too chilly inside, but otherwise all was great.
Have eaten here several times but this last visit was disappointing. Steaks were definetly not cooked as ordered...well done vs rare on one which the kitchen did redo. Way too much pepper on the grilled tomatoes. We allowed plenty of time to eat before the symphony but arrived with just minutes to spare. Will probably try in again in hopes this was just an off night.
We love Silver Trumpet for pre-theatre suppers as it is a 4-5 minute walk to the theatres of Orange County Performing Arts Center. They also validate parking in their garage. Our server, Stephanie, was delightful and efficient. We love the menu. They also have a good Happy Hour but it ends a little early, 6:00. They do have outdoor seating as well.
The Grill Chicken with Mashed Potatoes was an awful dish. I could not eat the chicken which was not properly cooked. It was just boiled and served with mashed potatoes and some sauce on my plate. no taste at all. moreover, the chicken was also not good. I ate mashed potatoes and left the restaurant, never to return. Till the end of my stay in Avenue of Arts, I went out for my dinners. never even thought of returning to Silver Trumpet.
However, the staff was very cordial and sweet.
Hotel restaurant. Don't really know much about it. We were shopping in the area and found it on line. Planned on sharing a turkey burger but went with the chicken quinoa plate after a bread basket was delivered. My husband liked the lunch, but I thought it needed a bit more seasoning. Rolls were rubbery. Turns out they're kept in a warmer all day. The server replaced it with a very nice foccacia - which arrived at the end of the meal. We ate several pieces out of guilt at it being brought special for us and because it was good. We ate outside facing the lake. Excellent service. Parking was validated. If we're in the neighborhood again, we'd probably give it another chance.
It was the most enjoyable dinner I shared with my family. We were outside in the patio area & the staff went above & beyond with service. Bravo! Great food, great atmosphere, amazing dessert & have recommended ur restaurant to all of my business entrepreneur friends & family all over the world. Bravo!
Look forward to our next visit in the near future. Thank u.
