Also, they will remind you that the chocolate souffle cake takes extra time to make, so to order that early... More

Many San Clemente restaurants survive, I am convinced, not because they are so great, but because there are so few decent ones that average gets upgraded to above average. This was our forth visit to Vine in the past 5 or 6 years. The first two were both disappointing so we didn't go back for years. Then, a friends told... More

If you are looking for a real culinary, fine dining experience, this is the place for you. My husband and I came here last night and were truly impressed with this little gem of a restaurant. The ambience is perfect. If you are looking to mingle with the crowd there is a great little bar and tables inside. The decor... More

This is one of the most under-appreciated great restaurants in San Clemente. The food is excellent and creative, with daily specials and a good variety of choices. I have been at least 10 times, and I have never been disappointed. The bar area is very nice and has an area of tables for a nice dinner or happy hour and... More
