Excellent food, excellent service! And consistent. Seafood special (scallops) was the winner, but the short rib is a knockout, the ribeye amazing, and we love the burgers here too. Barbara has been our waitress for multiple visits and has always offered wine suggestions and great service

We went to the Vine for the first time on Friday night for our Anniversary. We have lived in San Clemente for 7 years and had never tried it. Boy have we been missing out on a local gem!!! The atmosphere is great and the food is fabulous as well as the service! This is our new favorite restaurant!

The food was fantastic & the service was the best! We dine out frequency & it's so refreshing to have a server that knows how to explain what's on the menu, how it's prepared, make recommendations & have personality at the same time! Seems simple but many restaurant owners are so unaware of how their staff can make a difference in a customer returning to their restaurant or not. It's not just about the food. It's about the whole dining experience. Alexis was our server & her attention to detail was great. My friend was not sure about having another glass of wine & Alexis offered to bring her half a glass. Very accommodating. That being said...again back to the food, it was excellent, we'll be back & I would recommend "Vine" and Thank you Alexis for an enjoyable evening :-)

We had a 7:30 pm reservation. Unfortunately, the diners at our table prior to us sat around until 8:00 pm, 30 minutes after paying their bill. The Vine's management was very apologetic and comp'd part of our meal. Everything ended well.

If you’re going for a nice dinner, ask to be seated in the dining room; otherwise you risk being seated at a community table in the bar.

Great food! Awesome service.
My husband and I went for our 10 year anniversary dinner. My husband loved the ribeye, it’s to die for. And dessert was on the House. We’ll definitely go back.

This is our go-to place whenever we feel like going out for dinner. The food is great! It is clear that the menu and the dishes are made with great care and skills; plus they serve a can't-beat chocolate souffle. The service staff is always courteous and attentive. Prices are not cheap but are reasonable for the quality of the food and the level of service. We spend almost all of our special occasions here. Highly recommended!

My wife and I went to the Vine for her birthday and asked for a table outside (thinking it would be quieter than inside). Although there were only 15 people outside, the noise level was high requiring us to talk in a very loud voice thru dinner. Food was good.

Our first time going to the Vine. It is on the pricy side in my opinion. That aside, we had a very nice dinner there. Brought our own bottle of wine for $20 cork charge. Had cheese and cured meat plate. It was very good. We split the Ribeye, very tasty. Then they brought a chocolate suflee for my wife's birthday. A very nice touch and the suflee was amazing!!

It was my boyfriend's birthday and he said it was the best birthday he ever had. We started with a great Ceasar salad. Then the ribeye steaks that were to die for, huge and cooked to perfection. For his birthday they served a chocolate souffle with ice cream on the house. Very special. We had a very positive experience and will dine there again for sure.

Seated at nice outdoor table. Server did a fine job. Nothing wrong with food, but at same time, the meal didn't "pop" for me. I put value at 3 - perhaps it was a 4. But the meal paled in comparison to a similar meal the night before in Dana Pt ( Harbor Grille)

I love the fresh seafood at
Vine, so that's what I always order. There are many other good choices. Companions have told me the steaks are delicious.
Every starter we have had has bee special as are the salads.
Each experience we have had has been positive. I prefer dining
On a week night. Weekends tend to be hectic. Staff is knowledgeable and very helpful.
Cocktails are great. The wine list
Has some lovely selections.
