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

My granddaughter and I celebrated my birthday at this restaurant yesterday. It was fantastic. The entire staff was so nice. I had a glass of wine and they made my granddaughter a mock cocktail that was I incredible. We were a little early for dinner so we had a drink in bar area and then moved to the outside patio....

Not having eaten at Vine in several years and finding ourselves in the area we were happy to re-discover this place. Vine reminds me of a place I'd find in Sonoma. The food is very good and portions are generous. The caesar salad was definitely enough to share. The scallops at $32 were prepared perfectly. My one comment and it's... More

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
