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.

Noisy but Good

Restaurant tends to be noisy. The food is very good and there are lots of choices. I have allergies and they are very accommodating about making their dishes without my allergens - one of which is tomatoes. The staff is friendly and helpful.

We were heading back to Grandmas house after a full day at Disneyland. We were tired and hungry. They close at 9:30 and we feared the kitchen was closed when we walked through the door at 9. Our waiter was extremely accommodating and helpful. I was intrigued with the soup of the day, creamy jalapeño, but they were out. Darn!... More

I have been to SDT Cafe in San Juan Capistrano but I prefer the San Clemente location. It is a larger restaurant and the bar is great. We usually sit at the bar for dinner and get our drinks from Paul the bartender. Best Margaritas and Chocolatetinis anywhere. Oh YUM!!! He is super nice and very professional. Everyone seems to...

Five cousins in 70-80s getting together for a long catch up meal. We wanted a warm atmosphere and good food. And that is what we had. Portions too large, but so good that there was no choice about finishing them. Interesting combinations of foods. Many that we had never had.

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 non-alcoholic beverage was included with... 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...
