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.

Our first visit to Sundried Tomato and until I started writing this, I had no idea they were part of a chain (I usually avoid chain restaurants). The food was outstanding! We had a grilled artichoke with parmesan, steamed mussels in the most fantastic, creamy broth, and kobe beef sliders. Everything was so delicious!

We dine here at least once a month and have always had great food and professional service. I do not understand the negative reviews of some. This is an upscale restaurant with nice atmosphere and quality food. One of the top restaurants in San Clemente. Whether you're looking for steak, fish, rack of lamb, or just a gourmet sandwich, there... More

This place is great for happy hour or dinner. They have THE best Dirty Martinis in town, the bartenders and wait staff are great. The happy hour menu is large enough to eat as a meal, and it lasts from 2-7 every day!

Great food, fun atmosphere, but horrendous service behind the bar. The prices are a little high, but I'm usually fored to spend a lot less here!

Of the varied high quality menu items, we liked the soup choices the most. The cream of tomato soup is very creamy with nice tomato taste and subtle seasonings. The wine selection is also good and it has an atmosphere that suits singles and families.
