Sundried Tomato American Bistro - San Clemente Ratings and Reviews
We got there early and they accommodated us understanding that we were in a hurry and had to be somewhere in an hour. We got our appetizers and food very quickly and our waiter was wonderful. She was attentive and knowledgeable. Very good experience with the food and dining experience.
We ate at Sundried Tomato once about 3 years ago and enjoyed the meal. This time was a different experience. The restaurant was very crowded and the noise level is quite high, which is tolerable if you're prepared for that. Service was fair and the food mediocre. Spring roll appetizers were too crunchy and nearly flavorless. Lamb chops were tasty but the accompanying potatoes were under-cooked and not very tasty. Overall a mediocre dining experience.
We wanted to go to dinner near the beach, but all of the restaurants there were crowded. So we put in open table and Sundried Tomato came up. I didn't know there was one in San Clemente. It was a bit of a drive inland, but was just what we were looking for. No wait, good food and quiet place that we could visit!
2 hot teas, 4 street tacos (2 plates) and one cobbler with ice cream split, no appetizers and no alcohol = $60.00.
Location is convenient and staying open late is a good feature. I will come back because of the location, but the meal was very expensive for the food we received.
Food tasted good.
We don't live in San Clemente, but were looking on Yelp for a place to meet half with with our north OC family. The reservation was easy to get and the entire evening was a pleasant surprise. The menu was excellent-something for everyone. The outdoor patio was lovely! Our server was knowledgable and attentive! If we lived closer, we'd frequent here often!
This was my first time dining at Sundried Tomato and it will more than likely be my last. I ordered the chicken and pesto sandwich and it left much to be desired. It is sort of my go to sandwich if I see it on the menu at lunch or early dinner. I don't know how they messed up something as simple as chicken and pesto but they did. My friend had a burger and said it was ok but could get the same quality and taste at a less expensive establishment. We both enjoyed out fries and drink, I had red wine she had a sofa. We ordered the seven layer chocolate cake for dessert and that was good, however the scoop of ice cream on the size was freezer burned. Our service was good, he came around enough to keep us refilled on beverages.
Maybe this place is better if you're just going for drinks and appetizers, but not for a meal.
Server was a little slow but very nice and courteous. We got our wine before our water and bread. Had to ask twice for water. Don't like that. We had the bacon wrapped scallops as an appetizer. Had the New York strip Special with mashed potatoes and asparagus. It was excellent. I love the peppercorn sauce they put on it. Wife had the seared tuna as usual. Had a side salad but got the wrong one. We ordered the ceasar and got the mixed greens. Rather than wait to get the right one, she just ate it. He apologized, but he should have taken it off our bill. My son had the ultimate burger for Hamburger week. Very good! We always love this place but it was a little off this night.
I thought I was going to be disappointed since this was not located by the beach. We were pleasantly surprised. Light breeze on a very hot day, made us a fresh pot of coffee instead of giving us the bottom of the pot. I was disappointed at the price of just a regular cup of coffee...$3.50!..we ate off the brunch menu and had a fried egg sandwich which was exceptionally good....cooked just right and our servers were great.
Took my mother to Sundried for a last minute dinner. She had the lamb chops at 25 dollars. Only two chops. but for 5 dollars more you can add a chop. I liked that because two is not enough. She loved it and it satisfied her appetite. As always, everything else was wonderful. The scallop and poke appetizers are amazing.
When it's too hot to cook we head to ST. The happy hour menu is available restaurant wide until 7:00 pm and there is a nice selection of appetizers and smaller entrees. The staff have always been friendly and professional.
P.S. If it's cold and rainy this is a great place too. The tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich will warm you up.
Whenever at the last minute neither one of us wants to cook dinner, we are lucky to have Sundried Tomato almost in our back yard. The food is always very good. We prefer to eat outside as inside the TVs are all on and the bar is noisy. The server and kitchen staff is always VERY good about avoiding onions due to allergy one of us has. Great deals on small plates during Happy Hour.
The family got together for father's day. We sat on the patio and Brittany was our server. She memorized our orders for 5 people and got all of them and our little requests (dressing on the side) right! Food and ambiance were great too! I will definitely be back.
Here you can always expect excellent attention, excellent food and overall inexpensive and great dining experience! You can go outside if you like which is always nice AND Happy Hour is throughout the restaurant so you don't necessarily have to be at the bar, which is great!
We found this place via OpenTable, as we'd planned to be in San Clemente but knew no restaurants there. We weren't expecting it to be in the midst of a small mall and worried the place might not be special enough. (We were taking relatives to supper.) But it was perfect! The food was delicious, from the salmon with quinoa to the mac and cheese for the child to the signature burger with the works. We tried the sinful homemade potato chips for an appetizer, and shared two desserts--the crème brulée sampler and the . . . was it? . . . caramel cake--both too much for one person but both delicious. The service was lovely. We would certainly recommend it.
We came here for their Mother's Day brunch buffet. There was a nice variety of food. Most of the choices were winners, especially the pasta salad, cream cheeses for the bagels, crab cake egg item and desserts. The french toast and waffles were tasteless, even with syrup, fruit and whipped cream! They did have some delays in keeping items stocked, but overall it was a pleasant time. It would be nice if a non alcoholic beverage would be included in the price.
