Disappointed in our Valentine Dinner. Expected more European fare but was just the ordinary food I could have had at any steak house. Not much on ambiance either - we were seated next to a table of 16 on what was to be a romantic evening.

A great find in San Juan Capistrano. Quiet and delicious. The best dumplings! We really enjoyed the music.

I came here for a weekday lunch in April. I was pleased to find plentiful free parking in the adjacent lot. I sat outside on their patio, which was lovely, with a fountain, umbrellas over the tables to shield from the sun, and a really cool mosaic accent wall. But that is where the positives stopped. The waiter was sullen... More

It's not often that you find a good European/German restaurant anymore, and this accidental find, really hit all the right marks. The room itself is nice, comfortably quaint,at the backside of a complex and parking lot. (A bit mom-and-dad-ish,our teenager thought,but that's not a bad thing!) The service was attentive and warm, in spite of the fact that the waitress... More

Intimate restaurant with excellent food. They always have unique items to try for the adventurous, like alligator or frog legs to name two. Great service well priced

Great lunch with German and Austrian selections. My Beef Stroganoff was delicious with perfect seasonings and sour cream. My friend's Spaetzel was right on. The chocolate cake dessert was scrumptious, which rounded out a delightful meal. With their perfectly prepared selections, the homemade lemonade and the attentive service, we shall be back to this quaint, charming restaurant. If you are... More

We recently hosted my mother-in-laws 80th birthday party at Café Mozart for 40 people. Hans and Carla were wonderful to work with and made sure everything was perfect for our guests and Mom...The wait staff were amazing and so very accommodating! To a person everyone enjoyed their meal immensely! We had cocktails out in the courtyard first and then moved... More

We had lunch today on the patio of Cafe Mozart, the interior was lovely and great for a romantic dinner, but today was a picture perfect southern California day. Two of us had the duck salad and it was delicious. The Duck breast was cooked perfectly, a little red in the middle, warm and juicy on a salad of greens,... More

Just south of the mission in San Juan Capistrano, you will find Cafe Mozart. I think it is a husband & wife team that put this together. The salmon w/ lobster sauce, scalloped potatos was wonderful. My only complaint was the rather small portions. Desserts perfect.

We had a nice, low-key lunch on the patio prior to a visit to the Mission. Service was good and sandwich and salad were tasty. The patio is a courtyard and you are well shaded from the sun.
