A last minute decision for a family dinner found us on the patio of The Vine. The smaller kids enjoyed the hamburgers - 2 choices - one very spicy so they stayed away from that. The lamb shank was a popular choice. Starters were very tasty duck wings - actually legs and a plate of marinated olives. Desert was split... More

Wonderful menu, but the burger is absolutely AMAZING. You wouldn't expect that, but it is a standout. The menu includes fish, chicken, and steak, and a very large array of wines and beers.

My husband and I ate at Vine on a recent trip out to California and enjoyed every aspect of this restaurant! Very busy but we were able to make reservations in advance so were seated promptly. Our waitress was very friendly and made us feel at home. Good wine list! I ordered the pork schnitzel and it was outstanding! My... More

I can't count the number of times we've gone here, and spoiled out of town friends when we have the chance. Great drinks and food in the bar, dining room or outside. We usually eat in the bar, great atmosphere and servers. Try the duck wings, my favorite!

The Vine Restaurant in San Clemente is a true treasure. It caters to the late twenties to early forties just by design and ambience. So even if my husband and I skewed the age range we had a wonderful meal with our goddaughter, great nephew and their spouses. The food was wonderful, the service was even better and the wine...

Good luck to find a parking spot on week days and week ends. They have none. That's the only negative about the place. As you can imagine, it is very busy since it is the new place "in" Tight tables, the best spot is at the bar where you can see and observe the show . It is a show,... More

I've been to Vine many times for dinner and have walked away every single time feeling extremely satisfied. The menu changes seasonally and is a mix of Californian cuisine and gastropub fare. There is an impressive beverage program with delicious craft cocktails. My favorites are the clams & Israeli couscous and the pork schnitzel which is paired with spaetzel!

I go to the Vine usually every 6 weeks or so, it is a very good restaurant and bar, with good food and excellent service, I wish they would change their menu a bit, but overall it is very good.

I was lucky enough to dine at this fine place while visiting a local of San Clemente. The food was amazing and the service was impeccable. We had the private room in the back which I recommend if you want a less lively scene. The steak was perfectly cooked as was the lamb shank. I will be back! Oh and... More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary by dining here for the first time. Cocktails, appetizers, entrees with a bottle of wine, followed by dessert and after dinner drinks. A $200 bill. All was great, that is until the manager stopped by and told us we need to hurry and LEAVE! He had someone else with a reservation that needed... More
