Great meal on New Year's Eve. Service was great and the food excellent. We were inside, where the tables are not too close together which was nice. Prices were variable depending on order - I had the special surf and turf which was pricey but very good. Portions were more than adequate. We will definitely be visiting again.

The ambiance in the dining room was great. As we were leaving, I saw the bar area had plenty of diners, who were there by choice, as there were own tables in the much quieter dining room. I guess some people like the noise, activity, TV. Each to his own! The salads, at over ten dollars, were good, but too... More

A friend who is a local took us out to this place. We ended up in a private area adjacent to the bar, which was perfect. Our server was excellent. The food was inventive and very good. If we were local, we would eat here regularly.

The wife and I always take our out of town friends here, as it is a good reflection of the California dining experience. They have a really nice wine selection, and the wait staff is great at recommending meal/wine pairings. 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
