Dinning Car Dinner

Love the town of San Juan Capistrano and the Vintage Steakhouse is an excellent addition. You dine in an old dinning car. The atmosphere is great and so is the food.

The Vintage Steak house is situated in a row of old train carriages. The atmosphere is really fab and good for both kids and adults. The food is brilliant, you have to try the steak, as it is a steakhouse and they live up to there name by cooking it really well. If you fancy something else the chicken is... More

A Groupon deal provided a four-course meal which was quite good. Wine recommendation was spot on. The steak sauces were not original, just average. The artichoke appetizer and the desserts, especially the Side Car were great!

The Vintage Steakhouse was an interesting find. Seating is with a 1920's era Pullman dining car. It was very comfortable, and the service was great. We had lunch which is priced at $12.75. The food was quite good.

The Vintage has a nice atmosphere in the old train cars and depot. Our server was very friendly and helpful. The rest of the staff was good too. My husband said his steak was the best he's ever had. But my ahi arrived without the baked potato I'd ordered and the vegetables and creamed corn were cold. I had to... More

My wife and I ate here while in the area. I knew what it was and she did not. That said, she was completely impressed by the ambiance and the server we had really made the meal. This guy was both friendly and professional, someone with real personality. The food was great, the mai-tai was so-so, and the cucumber martini... More

We stopped at the Vintage Steakhouse for a cocktail. We had already eaten, so we did not try any of the food. We will though! The staff was so kind and the service was amazing. A must try if in the area.

Ok, from making the reservation - they asked, "is this a special occasion", thru the food choices - the Mahi Mahi was fresh and prepared just right (some seem to over cook), to the desert - their specialty desert - The Train Car was delicious. Too bad my wife is gluten intolerant, I had to eat it myself (plus she... More

The Vintage is an elegant but casual steak house with very gracious service. My only complaint is that every single dish is covered in rich sauce. It would be nice to have a lighter hand and perhaps balance out a light salad with a rich entree. This is located in the old Train Depot in San Juan so the location... More

On our way to Laguna beach from mission beach to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary, we decided to make a pit stop and have a quick bite to eat. We decided on San Juan Capistrano. I suggested sarduccis but my husband said "why don't we try the vintage." Having lived in the OC for close to 40 years before moving... More
