Food was excellent
Drinks too pricey
Get the short ribs. Order a smoke show. Go home and sleep.
We love Vine. Food is consistently amazing as is the staff. Highly recommend.
Great food and service! The outdoor patio was warm and comfortable
I went with three friends to celebrate two birthdays. We started with four appetizers, mac & cheese, brussel sprouts, fried green tomatoes and a Caesar salad. All four were delicious. The entrees were good, but the sides were all lukewarm, the polenta, mashed potatoes and pasta that came with the entrees. The one entree I was excited about, the bone in rib eye was a disappointment. It was not tender and not seasoned enough. Other than that, we enjoyed the night. We were comped with a delicious creme brûlée and chocolate cake which were good.
First time I had been there and it was a lovely experience. We had oysters, the pork belly and the fried green tomatoes appetizers and they were all delicious. For main I had the sea bass and it was cooked perfectly. This is a great place, can't wait to go back.
I highly recommend the Vine, I indulged the chef specialty.
evening specialties always excellent canot go wrong on the chicken
As always great all around
We had such a nice time that our friend want to fly his wife in and take her here to show her how cool San Clemente is.
Great experience as always!
My husband and I went there for our Anniversary, our first time there. We sat at the bar and was serviced by the best bartender ever!! His name was Chris. He doted on us and made our dinning experience the best!! Food awesome. Service awesome. Atmosphere awesome! A definite must try! We can’t wait to go back!!!
Foods good. They got a few things wrong on our order an
Everything was delicious
We loved our meal at Vine - go, it’s wonderful!!!
Joshua was our server and from the moment we arrived he ensured we had a lovely evening. We had two birthdays at our table and he made sure that they received just the right amount of extra attention.
The food was excellent. I had the trout special. Others had the salmon, always a good choice and the short ribs, equally delicious. The Vine is my favorite special occasion restaurant and they did not disappoint.
I also felt they took all COVID precautions and it was a safe dining experience.
Sea bass was good, special rock Cornish game hen could have been cooked more
Excellent all the way around! Food was great, service was great.
Ate outdoors in their covered area. Very nice setup. Cozy. Food was outstanding. One of our party got the sea bass, one got the salmon and the other two got the special which was a short rib ragu over pappardelle. All were excellent as was the meat and cheese board and the cocktails
It is always a pleasant experience dining at Vine
Excellent service!!! Ate outside and felt well spaced. Perfect weather too! Food, as always, was wonderful. Had an appetizer with goat cheese, apricot and balsamic vinegar that was fantastic!!!
Never disappointed with this restaurant.
Lots of temporary outdoor seating for COVID-19 restrictions.
Can be noisy inside when full because dining area is on the small side.
Joshua was our waiter and he was wonderful. We were treated like valued customers even though it was our first visit. We will be going back for sure!
Margaritas we ordered for $14 were extremely underwhelming. Honestly didn’t taste any tequila. My wife’s scallop plate was really good but the short rib plate had absolutely no seasoning and was very bland. I wanted to say something but I didn’t and now I regret it. Very disappointed, especially with how pricey their food and drinks are. Probably won’t be going back for a long long time. Bummed because we were very excited to eat there.
Awesome variety and preparation of food, great service. Waiters were on top of everything and food was fresh and perfect. Excellent cocktails and selection. Highly recommend
As always, great food, the pumpkin ravioli appetizer was amazing, the scallops were perfect, and I always love a good Rescue Dog.
It was great, celebrating 23 yrs and from beginning to end was amazing.
First time going to Vine and it won’t be the last.
Service was above and beyond and very helpful and knowledgeable about the Wine and foods on their menu. The Chilean Sea bass was cooked perfectly and was very tasty. Their outdoor dinning area was set up very nice and that ambience made you forget that we were sitting outside in what used to be their parking lot.
I excellent experience!!
Great place for special occasions! The service and food was delicious.
Vine is always one of our favorites in South Orange County.
Great evening with excellent food and service! Outside patio area is very nicely done.
I get it. COVID-19 has affected dining. I went to Vine to enjoy dinner with my family. We were seated under an “easy up” in the darkest corner of the parking lot. Chairs had no padding and were uncomfortable. Appetisers were tasty but took a lengthy amount of time to arrive. After a long wait our waiter came back and asked if we wanted desert. I said we would like our dinner. Perhaps he was over worked or had a bad night. Main course was good but I’m not sure we will return.
Always great going to the vine! He’s tonight out in a long time.
It took 23 mins ( I timed it ) for a server to approach our table to even place a drink order. I was just about to walk out until a waitress noticed our table and jumped in. Our waitress was fantastic and made a birthday dinner very special and made up for her slow runners and host putting her in the hot seat. Ill be back though.
The food is always fresh and delicious. I eat here every chance I get with friends and family.
Food was delicious! Joshua was our waiter...very knowledgeable about the menu, wines and beers. Very personable. A really great experience!
Enjoyed the outdoor seating arrangement. We were halfway through our appetizers before we realized we were sitting in the former parking lot. I hope they keep it this way- it's nice to be able to eat outside. Food was delicious- just wish they had more vegetarian/vegan options.
Under these extreme circumstances it was fine. Sitting in the parking lot was ok, but our table was up (touching)against an adjoining wall where a drainpipe allowed ants to freely walk around on our table during dinner- nobody’s fault but there it was. They were especially obvious on the white table cloth. Also, we immediately noticed the strong smell of the dumpster in these hot weeks 25 feet behind our table- again, no where else to put it & I get it. Food was great, service great, and again - under the circumstances - hats off for pulling it all together- we’ll be back.
great food. however we had a reservation and were told our table was given away so we were seated in the bar. it was so loud. people kept bumping us. and it took over an hour to get our main course. it was really yummy when we got it tho. service was eh
They observed COVID-19 safety guidelines well. The food was very good and so was the service. I’d recommend a visit.
