this is the second time we've eaten here before a show at segerstrom. it's very good food and the service is excellent! they have a limited but very tasty prix fixe menu, and it doesn't seem to change over time, but the bacon wrapped dates are to die for!! my husband got a cobb salad which which was a good portion, and we shared a prix fixed meal. it was a perfect sharing meal. we have another show next month, and i'm sure we'll be back again. oh, the other plus is the parking and validation to go see a show at segerstrom. i love that it's right across the street. super convenient!

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.

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.

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.

The food was excellent. I had the rack of lamb, very generous amount and delicious this was the price fixe and everything prepared su7perbly. My husband had the filet mignon and it was one of the best he ever tasted. cooked to perfection and fork tender. I would certainly go back for dinner. It was a drive from Riverside but was going to Segerstroms following dinner,It was a perfect night!

Staff was friendly. Server was attentive. Crab cakes and soup were very good. Don’t know the reason but both of our salads were served undressed. Chef over cooked one of the filets when both were to be broiled the same. The lobster was over cooked and tough. Service was slow even though the dining room was not full. This is the second time we have dined here and the first experience was similar. I do not believe that I will give them a 3rd chance.

We had a 4 p.m. confirmed reservation before our theatre performance which started at 5:30 p.m., and we actually arrived 15 minutes early for our dinner reservation. It took ONE hour to take our order when there were only 3 filled tables in a large restaurant! The service was terrible except for the person who filled our water every 10 minutes. We had to rush through dinner in order to arrive to our theatre reservation. It is unfortunate as the ambiance and location are excellent; however, the service completely ruined the experience. I also do not appreciate having to be forced to recommend this restaurant when none of the choices apply. You need to add "Do NOT recommend" and define selections as to why to improve the problems.

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.
