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

We had a wonderful dinner here as a result of receiving a gift certificate. We were impressed from the first look outside, at the restaurant itself, to the impeccable service once inside. We were seated in the 1927 Pullman car portion of the restaurant, at a lovely booth. Service was top notch. Our server John. along with several other staff... More

We ate here Friday Sept 12 using an Amazon Local coupon. The service was excellent. Charlie was our server and made sure we did not wait or want for anything. Our drink order was taken promptly. His recommendation for beer (Xingu) was perfect. We were given a special menu since we were using a coupon. We chose one appetizer to... More

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
