We like Sun-dried Tomato a lot! Friendly staff and great meal choices. We had the lamb burger, the salmon salad and the blue corn tortilla duck taquitos. Everything was delicious!
We typically meet friends who live in San Clemente in San Juan because it’s about 1/2 way for us both & usually at Sundried. This time was very disappointing. Although the restaurant was not busy the service was less then ok. Very slow & not attentive. Food came out after a long wait & was cold. Our order wasn’t taken & drinks not brought in a timely manor. Very disappointed!
Charming setting well located in historic neighborhood. Prompt, attentive service. Varied menu.
It was great! The food was delivious and the service was very friendly and attentive
The food is just delicious and the service is great. Every time we dine here it's beyond my expectations !
Seven of us went for lunch recently but I have eaten there often. The food is always excellent and the outside patio is lovely on a warm day. I had the Portobello mushroom sandwich and Tomato soup for lunch and both were excellent. All others at the table, who had never eaten there before, were very impressed with the quality of their meal. One small complaint.....the service was very poor on that particular day. I have never had an issue with it before.
casual dining. our server Angie was very sweet and pleasant! very attendant . and at times even the manager helped out and made sure we were ok which was very nice. I had halibut over risotto and asparagus and was very tasty. so was the kale and romaine salad.
Outstanding experience while celebrating my spouse's birthday. Excellent service and each dish exceeded expectations. This was our second time at this restaurant and we definitely plan to return on a future date.
We were there last Sunday night , wasn’t no busy at all , Great foods, great services 👍👍👍good location , We definitely will go back more ,
My wife had the combo clam chowder with chopped salad. I had combo clam chowder with half chicken sandwich. The chowder was really great we both complimented it. My wife really liked the chopped salad and I liked the chicken sandwich. Even the iced tea was really good. Semi tropical. Service was prompt and good and price was reasonable considering the quality.
Had to leave restaurant before I got much going due to problem with our guests. Seems like it would have been a nice place.
Eaten here many times. Always 5 star. Being with Opentable is probably 1 or 2 stars. Opentable looks for any reason to avoid awarding points.
Great menu and food with wonderful service
The food is always exceptional. The lamb chops are definitely the best in the area, and I have tried them all, but the other items are also worth any efforts it will take to enjoy SdT’s fare.
Location just a two minute walk from the train station makes it accommodating to those arriving by train. Many food options available to suit a wide range of tastes. All in party are always walk out very satisfied. Seating is comfortable and not noisy. Option to sit outdoors and people watch is great especially on warm evenings.
Always delicious food! Service was excellent. We were there for my friend’s birthday and they were wonderful about bringing a complimentary dessert.
Birthday lunch was delightful.
It was delicious and the service was amazing. Overall a great experience!
The food is amazing love you on the streets and you can look after you're finished with delicious food you can walk around such a great place would recommend
Mother’s Day features a special menu, which we’ve had before. The menu still had a good variety of choices. All of us had more food than we could eat.
We were seated in the bar area, but it wasn’t noisy.
First time at the establishment with wife and another couple. Excellent seating outside and they were able to accommodate a dog that was with us. Enjoyed excellent wines and appetizers before our meal. Presentation of each meal was outstanding as was the quality and creativity of each dish. Will be back soon.
Hadn't been to Sun Dried in several years, but on the glowing feedback from a co-worker, my hubby & I decided to try it again.
Lovely little restaurant on the main drag in downtown SJC. Street parking (but on a Fri. nite I parked in the convenient parking structure close to the train depot). Seated right away and our very kind server Alex tended to us immediately.
My husband had their clam chowder and salmon, and both were wonderful. I had their half rack and loved the delicious sauce they use on their ribs. Fall off the bone meat; tender & delish!
My husband's Kamakazi had some issues, but we do understand it's a retro drink, and many are not familiar with the recipe. He ended up with a IPA that was very good, and I have to give kudos to the manager Kelly and Alex who made sure he ended up with a good second choice.
There is outside dining, which is helpful for folks who enjoy have their puppies along during a meal.
Thank you Sundried for a lovely evening out!
We have been dining at this restaurant for years. The food has always been consistently delicious. The servers are friendly and attentive. We will continue to frequent this restaurant. Also, the baked artichoke is not to be missed!
Service was outstanding. Timing was perfect. Food was absolutely delicious!
Had Caesar salad...produce was very fresh, dressing was tasty. Bringing friends next week. Very good!!
Sundried Tomato has been a family favorite for the past 3 years and the food just keeps getting better!
Very enjoyable evening, food was great, root beer ribs, flat iron steak (tender and delicious) and the Halibut special were all fantastic. Service was very good, responsive, timely and very polite. We will definitely go back in the near future.
Nice and cozy restaurant where good food and ambiance go together.
The food is absolutely scrumptious. Hands down the best soup I’ve eaten in a long time. Highly recommend.
Started out good, but the hostess did not smile or offer any warm greetings... just sat us. Waiter came right away to take our drink and appetizers order....and we never saw him again until he presented the check. In between we had the manager finally have our drinks delivered, then take our dinner order, but our appetizers never arrived. When we asked about our app, they had forgotten, but our dinner was ready,so they brought entrees, then app finally arrived in the middle of dinner. The entrees were really good, so at least the cooks/ chef know what they're doing. Manager said she wouldn't charge for the app, but guess what? When our original waiter presented the check, it was still on there!?! We just paid and left. No one offered us dessert.
The service was terrible. I have dined there many times and was joined by a friend this time that had never eaten there before. I doubt she will go back so that is why I would not recommend it to a friend. My chopped salad with salmon was good, the salads are always good. However, our waiter was so unavailable, it made the experience less than desirable. We were sat at the table with water and 15 minutes went by with no waiter. I finally flagged down a hostess to order an iced tea. The waiter came and asked if we were ready to order and didn't even bother to ask if we wanted something other than water to drink. He brought the wrong food to our table. Then later a different waiter brought our food. Our waiter never followed up once our food was delivered. The next time we saw him was to bring us the bill. And the restaurant wasn't that busy for him to have been so neglectful...
Great service. Knowledge of specials, menu outstanding. Did not lack attention from servers.
Constant presence, and professional courteous service.
Lunchtime, noisy. Small closed-in seating area.
Rich, well flavored comfort food. Not your ordinary cheese and tomato soup.
Excellent service - great suggestions and very personable server!
I had the burger and it was scrumptious
Had a great dinner at Sundried last night. We went the route of ordering a handful of small bites. Beef and Chicken Sliders were great, so were the homemade chips and Panko Crusted Calamari. We'll be back for sure!! Thank you for a great experience.
Too noisy for my husband. He could hear the conversation of ladies two tables away but not people at our table
Monday in afternoon. We had very little attention from our waiter. The food was excellent.
It was so good to have the delicious lamb burger again--better than ever. Outstanding service from our patient, gracious waiter Christopher. I miss the Laguna location, but it's worth the drive to SJC. Rob continues to provide a great dining experience!
Birthday. I took two bites of my brunch choice and didn’t like it. I wasn’t asked why I wasn’t eating and was only offered a box. Service was VERY slow. It took 45 mins to get our appetizers and they were really slow with bottomless mimosas.
Very good food and friendly staff ! A little noisy but still comfortable. We are going back.
