Amazing food great service. Kid friendly.
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!
Britney is the best ever!!
14 of us gathered for Sunday brunch. The food. selection was diverse, tasty and well priced.
We were able to hear each other speak as the noise level was just right. The service was right on.
Excellent brunch choices! We ordered the Omelet with Brie and Carmelized Onions! Delicious!
I started with the bacon wrapped scallops. They are always very good. I had the shrimp pasta in a cream vodka sauce that was amazing. Very good dining experience for the price.
We went for thanksgiving at the last seating, so we felt a bit rushed. The wine did not arrive until we were almost finished our entree. Food was very good.
The food wasn't good and wasn't tasty at all, and the ambiance was depressing and dark without any decorations.
Food was decent. The chicken spring rolls are fantastic also the French cat martini is delicious! Calamari had no flavor and artichoke was overlooked.
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.
I've been to this restaurant twice and both times the food was not prepared correctly. My steak was well done instead of medium and my husband's burger was well done instead of medium rare. Not worth the $ they charge. We won't be going back.
I had the lamb chops this time and they were great. For an extra 5 bucks, I added a chop. More than enough food. The chops were served with green beans and mashed potatoes. All was very good.
Always excellent in food, ambiance and service. I ordered the Daily Lunch Special which was recommended by our server, Ruben. The Clam Chowder and Lobster Tacos were delicious! Ruben is the best server! Will always return to Sundried Tomato!
really enjoy the food & service here
Never have to wait very long & the staff is very attentive
The Seared Tuna steak over mashed potatoes was phenomenal. I was cooked perfect and a nice portion. I was very hungry and was opting for a steak. But they were out of New York strips. This was a great choice.
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!
We always enjoy it here as the service and food are great. We are never disappointed. Its close to home and among our favorite go-to places as the ambience is nice and we always leave happy!
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.
My wife and I just love their lamb burger! Everything is always wonderful rarely do we have to wait to get in, love this place!
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.
Our server, Ruben, was fabulous! We were a group of 14 Tennis Ladies there for lunch! Service was perfect as always. Food is always consistently good. It's great to have a Sundried Tomato in San Clemente!
This is our favorite go-to place when we are not up to cooking or have something going on and want to have a fun time out where we know the service will be good and the food great.
Enjoyed the Brie & carmelized onion Omelet! Delicious and served with slice avocado and roasted potatoes. The Brunch Menu is wonderful. Highly recommend!
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.
Delicious food and the service was fantastic. We arrived during happy hour so we enjoyed half off a great bottle of wine also!
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 we feel like going out locally this is among the first picks! We always have good food, the location is nice AND the service is always always exceptional!!!
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.
We've been to Sundried Tomato several times and are always pleased. The menu offers quite a variety of unique meals that are always so delicious! And it's a great place for a big group to meet. We've met here often for family birthday celebrations.
I have had dinner and lunch at Sun Dried and its now open for brunch on the weekends. The food is great.
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.
This place always offers good food and outstanding service . It never fails to provide an overall excellent dining experience. It's a GREAT Go-To place!!!
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.
Happy hour has great options and value. We like that they offer organic chicken. Lots of vegetarian options, too. Service is usually good, though there has been the rare occasion where we get a slow server.
Nice spot to have a casual dinner. We had grilled cheese and tomato soup with potato chips as a starter.
