The lobster special over cous-cous was delicious. The table behind us was a little too rowdy.

A chic and vibrant restaurant with a very warm and friendly environment. Enjoy seating in the bar area which is an open kitchen where the action is! The service is good although definitely on the pricey end.

Great food and really great service on Christmas Eve. The Vine is likely the best restaurant in San Clemente, though there are lots of great options: Nick’s, South of Nick’s, Sol Agave and many more on Del Mar. My only suggestion: when I book a reservation please let me choose between inside dining and inside a tent. The tent was ok, but nothing like dining in the restaurant.

Courtney, our server, was attentive, informative and gracious. Our wine and appetizer were served quickly. Generally my husband and I share the entree but I’m a filet mignon girl and only get it 1-2 times a year. My husband loves a juicy ribeye. We’re older so we don’t eat as much. Therefore, the entree would be the highlight of our meal. We exchanged bites of each others entree. My filet melted in his mouth. His ribeye was CHEWY beyond belief and would not break down in my mouth. I couldn’t believe he had not complained to me. He said it’s Christmas and I didn’t want to spoil the night. What a guy, huh?
Courtney was shocked but naturally apologetic. She was really shocked when I said Stater bros had better ribeyes. She took steak off bill and gave us a great desert. Bless her heart.
If we do go there again, won’t order a ribeye, lol

Our first time at Vine. The outdoor patio was warm and inviting. We enjoyed the oysters and pork belly as appetizers. The branzino was cooked to perfection. Our server was attentive and sweet. Loved the whole experience.

Fantastic food , drinks and service. Only detractor is having to still eat under a tent in the parking lot but that is not their fault. It was nice and warm with music.

Had not been to Vine in a while and it is better than ever. Packed on a Wednesday night. They hit all the right notes--great hospitality, service, well-curated list of wines and creative cocktails. Menu and food are excellent--every dish is a winner. Unpretentious cuisine, well portioned and fairly priced. Great quality. Cozy ambiance.

Two of the party had not been there before and were so impressed. We shared super-fresh oysters, the famous duck wings (with additive glaze), the house-made pumpkin ravioli and charcuterie platter. A+. Got full so we shared the halibut (great presentation) and the stroganoff.

The partner who runs the restaurant, Kyle, does an amazing job, orchestrating everything. Personable with all the guests. That attention to detail and consistency is what makes Vine San Clemente's best restaurant. We'll be back.

We’ve enjoyed the vine on many occasions; this visit was to celebrate a birthday. From start to finish, we had a wonderful evening! The food was exquisite. Three of the four of us especially enjoyed the imaginative and delicious stroganoff, but the fourth member of our party would argue his salmon was amazing! Compliments to the chef and the entire staff!
