Upbeat California cuisine, served in a smart casual environment. the restaurant has a long and creative wine list, at reasonable pricing. Black and white photos of Hollywood gone by adorn the walls while jazz and aromas of garlic waft through the air.

Mother's Day Brunch was very nice

We had Mother's Day brunch here and the selection was good, the quality of the food was overall very good and the service was good despite being very busy. The waffles and french toast were bland even with syrup and fruit. The rest of the food was tasty including the desserts. I wish that a... read more

The restaurant has been around for awhile and the menu is getting a little stale. The portions are as big as the prices but the food is flavorful and most times the meal is satisfactory. A few years back there was much more innovation and pizazz in the restaurant and menu. A few adjustments and seasonal specialties would enhance. We... More

As far as the bar area goes, it is nice and there are usually a lot of locals enjoying drinks. The beer selection is poor, but they have televisions and a cool outdoor area for eating or happy hour. There are better places to enjoy a game and go to happy hour. The food is average but the menu is... More

There are very few restaurants/bars in San Clemente that I would highly recommend because for me they have the perfect combination: service, food, and drink. In my recent experience, Sundried Tomato in San Clemente has this combination. During my visit, they were especially good with service. I sat at the bar and was served by Jordan. Not only was he...

This review is based solely on or experience this evening. It was so bad I was motivated to create an account to warn others! We have been here numerous times and always had a decent experience, until today! We knew that with bringing our two children time was of the essence, and already had a game plan and our menu...

We have eaten at this restaurant before, but it seems tonight was an off night for them. The server kept forgetting what we had requested, pint glass for glass beer, bread, different olives for our martinis, etc. The club sandwich was awesome, but the steak salad was not good.

Loved the Sundried Tomato Cafe! We sat at the bar and ordered drinks first. The beer selection wasn't that large but what they has was pretty good. They also have an amazing cocktail list. I have one of the special cocktails of the month and it was fantastic. I ate the "comfort combo" which is grilled cheese and a tomato... More

Whether I’m dropping in for Happy Hour at the bar or sitting in the dining room for lunch or dinner, I’m always satisfied with the menu at Sundried Tomato. My last visit was an impromptu quickie at the bar one evening with a friend and we feasted on Happy Hour menu appetizers (Crispy Stuffed Artichoke Hearts and Prime Angus Sirloin... More
