Great Steak

We had the filet mignon; just about the best I have tasted. Good veggies and twice baked potatoes. One down side; pretty pricey. $39.95. We did have a $20 groupon coupon. Salad not included.

It is a steakhouse .. and the steaks are damn good ! Let's just stop at that ... Well, to be fair and objective, let's review the whole picture --- Interesting location (trains zoom close by and you can feel them !). Setting -- You may call it quaint, a bit too dated for my taste. Good wine selection, typical... More

Went to see the the return of the Swallows and ended up at this resturant that looks like a train car. Had breakfast. Staff was friendly and very polite! Food was good and not to bad in price.

The train dining car is a novel idea. The seating is a little tight, but it works. The food is good, albeit a little heavy on the sauces. And for the area, the prices are steep. A nice evening out!

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
