We took the train to the San Juan Capistrano station and upon exiting we noticed this restaurant. It looked pretty cool since you can sit in a train car and since we didn't have breakfast yet we thought about eating here. After looking over the breakfast menu my wife ordered the French Toast, I got the eggs with ham steak.... More

Fantastic dinner! LOVED the decor, friendly service, awesome menu. A little loud when it got crowded, but overall a really nice dinner with the family.

The food was outstanding. the ombiance is great. Too bad the service was well below average. I guess good servers are hard to find. However, better no server than one that is weird and unattentive. "John" with his huge head of tied up hair needs to learn how to be attentive to his customers

We decided to use a restaurant certificate here and were so pleased we did! We shared a great shrimp cocktail plate (sauce is served on the side), followed by an amazing 'chef's choice' wild mushrooms in a creamy, wine sauce appetizer-mmmm. Dinner for us both was poached salmon béarnaise, perfectly sauced, with crisp-tender veggies and flawless mashed potatoes. The bread... More

Greeting by the owner was welcoming and benevolent, made me think he really cares about the service. Wonderful ambience as no one was in there when I was seated. Rolls were too crusty but the butter was soft and tasty. The House Artichoke Bottoms were amazing and the sauce on the side was out of this world; saved some to... More

Interesting how most had a very good experience yet very few had bad...shame really as we went as a family to celebrate my mum's birthday. All four of us really enjoyed the meal and honestly there was a ridiculous amount of food. I'm still stuffed a few hours later. I had the pork chop and it was a bit overdone.... More

More than a meal! This was an adventure! I was searching through Groupon for a restaurant to visit while we were in the Laguna beach area, and came upon The Vineyard Steakhouse. This restaurant is partly in a railroad dining car, and the other part is an addition to the dining car. Even though this was a Groupon, everything from... More

Had tried Vintage Steakhouse during a Taste of San Juan Capistrano walking tour and really enjoyed it, so when the Groupon deal came up we jumped on it. Had a reservation for 6:00 on a Sunday evening, not crowded at all. Nice table for two in the dining car, too bad the only view is the parking lot. Service very... More
