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

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
