This is really a great spot for some great food and a variety of great beers. The dishes are simple and satisfying. They also come in just the right proportion.

I was in the San Clemente area for just over 24 hours and Vine received rave reviews both from locals and online. I ordered the pork schnitzel and dumplings with wild mushrooms, a dish about which the enthusiastic waiter was exceptionally enthusiastic. Unfortunately, it was truly a disappointment. The schnitzel was pretty dry and there was almost as much breading... More

A local favorite for us. We enjoy the option of eating in the dining room or bar, both are nice but have different atmospheres. I also like their wine pricing and section both by the glass and the bottle - the mark up seems reasonable (vs. outrageous) and for this reason Vine is a great locals choice because Vine is... More

Vine is a small, charming, restaurant with an old world feel. We loved the brick accents in the arch entrance to the dining room and on the side wall. Our waiter was ebullient, our busboy was attentive, and the host was very gracious. We ordered three appetizers and one entree between us. The Caesar salad came with fresh anchovies -... More

We love going to Vine in San Clemente!!! Starting with the lovely atmosphere, yummy cocktails (you should try the pomegranate blood orange martini!!), nice wine list, delicious salads (the beet salad is out of this world!), and ending with the creative entrees - we always have a good time. Our waiter Greg is funny and always cracks us up with... More

We have enjoyed this restaurant many times over the last 4 years. It is a pleasant space, has good servers, and the menu is always appealing. The seafood is very good, and the wine burger is very popular and delicious. They have terrific fresh vegetables as well. We visit San Clemente every year for a week and always dine at... More

When we first moved to San Clemente, we'd go to Vine for a special romantic meal and really enjoyed it. Then they introduced a more casual, pub style version on one side of the restaurant. If I remember correctly, it seemed that for a while the food was different on each side, but now it's the same. As a result,... More

Last night we enjoyed a variety of Vine's starters, sandwiches and entrees. We started with the Market oysters on the half shell. These came with two sauces (champagne-green apple mignonette, fresh horseradish cocktail sauce) both were competent if uninspiring on these excellent oysters. The non-seafood eaters enjoyed their House Marinated Olives. My wife enjoyed the Pork schnitzel with wild mushrooms,... More

We visited on a Friday night around 6ish. We were able to get a small table in the bar area which is so cozy. I absolutely love the vibe of this place. Signature cocktails were out of this world. Try the Love Potion #9. Yum! We had a clam/mussel in a saffron sauce appetizer that was just amazing. Best we've... More
