Lovely Napa style local place

Delicious menu. Great wine selection. Fun bar. Trendy decor. Try to get a seat inside....the outdoor seating is a tent over the tiny parking lot. The interior is very NAPA Valley. We always enjoy the food and wine.

We visited Vine solely based on TripAdvisor reviews, and wow, what a gem. For weekends in particular be sure to reserve a table (so easy with Open Table). Parking is limited (just three narrow spots just past the restaurant if traveling north), but we snagged one. If not, look for a place on the street or in the nearby lot.... More

Excellent Napa/french style cuisine that I've been visiting for years. The cocktail and wine list is among the best for San clemente. Always satisfied with the meal and the service.

Vine has an excellent menu but if you go during their winter menu, you have to try their bone marrow appetizer!!! I'm not a big meat fan, but the extraordinary flavors that are encompassed in this divine ensemble are amazing! Their menu has something for every palate. Their wine list is top notch, and if you are inclined, I would... More

If you are looking for a classic dinning experience then Vine is the place. The service is excellent (server Nick was attentive and knowledgable without being overbearing). The food is seasonal and extraordinary with an off the beaten path menu and large portion. This is a must dine experience in San Clemente.

It had been a while since I had been to The Vine, so I decided to go with a friend. Candidly, I was a bit disappointed. The food was pretty good, but not great. The selection of wines by the glass were poor and the service was mediocre. Given their price point, I think it will be a while before... More

This is a cozy little bistro that is owner operated and the chef is creative. Food is consistently good to great. I think it is the best restaurant in San Clemente.

The vine is awesome! Always has consistent great service and amazing food. I always wish their menu was larger and more expansive because they have some great dishes. Great wine and cocktails, too! A must when in San Clemente. Their bone marrow appetizer is one of the best apps I've ever had (still).

My now husband took me here on our second date. He wore a shirt that I have since thrown away, but at least he has good taste in food! Ha! Great little gem of a place with excellent and creative dishes. We got the specials and they were fabulous. Great bar as well, although we don't drink, the drink menu... More
