Vine Restaurant & Bar
Overall 100% Perfect!
one of the best restaurants in south orange county. a bit dark but perfect for a romantic dinner with your partner. there are three two tops in the front, nice tables.
the bar area too frantic for me but if u r a millenial looking a partner, thats the place to be.
food is extremely good, well prepared, flavorful and reasonably priced.
when i leave there, cant wait to go back. if u go, u will become a regular
Great food. Patio a bit noisy
Went for the first time and really enjoyed it. They brought a nice appetizer on the house for it being our first time. It was our anniversary and they brought desert on the house. Nice touch!! We will definitely go back for a encore.
The Vine is always phenomenal. The food is consistently delicious and the staff is the best. One of our favorites
Always a treat and our favorite spot in San Clemente. Great service, fantastic food and inviting ambiance.
Great atmosphere and server was outstanding. Not sure why dishes were served on cold plates.
What a romantic way to celebrate two years of marriage! My husband and I both had the daily specials. Delicious! Thank you for your warm hospitality and wonderful meal! We’d recommend this to everyone and definitely will be back!
Vine is just outstanding--a winning combination of great food, and friendly, capable service. They were very accommodating of our group, and truly made Dad's birthday a special occasion. I would not hesitate to recommend Vine. 5 Stars!
This is one of the best restaurants in San Clemente. Food is always terrific. Just wish they would up their game on their beer selection, very pedestrian and largely unchallenged from previous visits. No craft beer enthusiast would be satisfied. Put some effort here and it’s 5 stars
The beef shanks on the dish was fabulous. Best ever! But the rest of the dish was mush. Polenta runny with sauces. Vegetables drowned in mush. The fish special was ok but also disappointing. The beet, crab salad was a joke. $19.95 for 3 slivers of grapefruit and 1/2 teaspoon of avocado was a joke. The flavor was good but ridiculously priced and too gourmet. Sorry. But we won’t be back.
The Vine is a must-dine if you're looking for a yummy, fun, or romantic evening. Great ambience, great food, great experience 💥
Food and service were great. Did not like sitting in the bar. They need more seating. I was disappointed since we were celebrating my birthday and I thought we’d have a nicer ambience experience. Too loud and crowded in the bar and wished they seated us somewhere else.
Parking is horrible too. No parking.
Amazing food and service. GF loved her salmon and the short ribs were very good too
Food and service was great
We were happy that we couldn’t get a decent time slot for dinner at South of Nicks(which we truly enjoy). This allowed us to come to the Vine. We’d heard of it. Looked it up and realized we’d enjoy trying the Vine out. So happy we did. Our new favorite restaurant in San Clemente. Definitely will be returning. Have told several of our friends who live in San Clemente and South OC a MUST place top on they’re list to try.
We had the best fish I’ve had in a long time. The vine never disappoints.
We had guests from out of town and wanted a seaside community dining experience. From the bartender, wait staff and our server - it was a wonderful experience. Will definitely do it again.
Delicious as always!
Delicious and romantic. One of our favorite restaurants for dinner!
Vine is a go-to place for locals in San Clemente, and we are regulars. The burger is the only one my wife will eat. The mac and cheese is so good I order it and take most home. The servers and managers are welcoming and are real pros.
We have always loved The Vine. Great food and wonderful service. Thanks!
Love the service! The staff makes us feel welcome and at home!
It was amazing. The Mexican shrimp with broth was more than words can describe. Great people and atmosphere
Celebrated boy friend’s birthday day. Waitress was so sweet and gave great recommendations. I really enjoyed the Basil and vodka drink and Branzino. Bf had ribeye it was charred as he requested, he loved it.
Waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu, very good service, food was delicious!
Great food and service couldn’t be better.
We love, love love 💗 the Vine. Carrie and Michelle are our FAVORITE peeps🤣
The Mac and cheese appetizer was awesome. The duck wings were more like tough fried chicken drumsticks with spicy orange sauce and were underwhelming. The blood orange cocktail was awful. They do a great steak though and the service was outstanding.
Excellent food. Great choices. Service was very good. Everyone was so attentive.
A total enjoyment from start to finish. The wine and food were excellent and service was friendly and fast. Staff really made us feel welcome and special. A 100% recommendation anytime you are in the area.
Best restaurant in San Clemente!
Great staff, great food, and fun bar
wonderful spot for dinner. One suggestion: my companion ordered the chilean sea bass. The fish itself was wonderful quality; however, the fish and the vegetables were smothered in a some type of green sauce. The sauce was okay, it was just that there was so much of it, it ruined the dish. Lighten up on the sauce please!
Our food and our server Barbara were both excellent! The noise level was a bit loud for ease of conversation, but it was a Saturday night and the restaurant was packed. The one negative is the parking, which was difficult. We had to park blocks away in a public lot as street parking was impossible and the building-adjacent lot had only a few spots that all were taken. Again, a Saturday night experience. I’d go again, but try for a weeknight which might be easier.
Everything was wonderful from the staff, to the food, and craft cocktails! We will definitely return.
Maybe our favorite restaurant in the area. Food is excellent. Very good wine selection. Ono special spectacular as is everything on the menu. Great service and ambiance. Can get somewhat noisy but not prohibitively so. Very popular. Good place for foodies or to celebrate.
Very poor quality food, I had the chicken dish, a fine restuarant would never pound the chicken breast to a thin patty, bread it then fry it, the spitazle had no flavor but the veggies were decent. They were out of the wine and it took them way to long to tell so the timing was way off for appetizers,wine and dinner. Overall a very poor dinner not sure were the 4 and 5 ratings come from.
Food was very good, service was good, excellent desert.
