Best Restaurant in San Clemente

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

Just moved to San Clemente for the summer and decided to try this place. Bricks was busy and had a 30 minute wait so we went across the street to Vine for a drink and ended up staying for dinner. The food,drinks, and service were all fantastic. The fried green tomatoes were perfect as were the Jalapeño margaritas Gabe made... More

This is what dining out is about. Very professional, friendly, knowledgable and sincere staff, right on! Cocktails are to die for, and very well explained. It's though to pick and it took me a while to make my final decision what to eat. Oysters are perfect. Lentils and leek soup was delicious and made from scratch, rich; exactly how it... More

First, I can't say enough about the excellent service. They were friendly and attentive and really seemed interested in making sure we had a great experience. We shared starters: fried green tomatoes and honey duck wings. Both delicious and unlike anything we'd ever had. Two of us had kobe beef burgers, one had the scallop special and one had the... More

We met for an early dinner on Sunday. The bartender was one of the best I've encountered. Suggested great drinks, made great drinks, modified drinks to accommodate tastes. He knows his stuff. And the food was delicious. The braised short rib and house made pasta had great flavors, all nicely balanced. The burger is so good that one member of... More

great food, stellar service, quaint little nook in the wine room. It was perfect for our party of 8. Private enough for us to relax and enjoy each other's company and the service could not have been better. I ordered pork osso bucco and it was absolutely delicious. Everyone seemed equally enthusiastic about their choices. After dinner ( and several... More

Hubby ordered schnitzel and I ordered lamb shank. We shared a beet salad and a chocolate souffle for dessert. All were excellent. Service was outstanding! Ate outside on their little patio; but our waitress gave us a tour of the inside and their back garden before we left. Drinks and wine were excellent too. One of the owners selected the... More
