Loved the cuisine and ambience. First time in San Clemente and the food was delicious. Our server, Kirk, was excellent. Very friendly, took the time to explain the menu and his suggestion was top notch! Thank you for a great evening!

Love the uniqueness of the delicious cuisine, and the lavender cocktail was lovely! The atmosphere of the intimate dining room was very cozy and comfortable. Service was first class. So enjoyable.

We visited family in the area and dined at Vine together. The food was excellent and the ambiance even better

Don't waste your money. Overpriced for what you get. I ordered a filet, it was covered in a bland sauce to hide the tough meat. The Caesar salad was worse. Do not recommend this restaurant

The Vine is classy! Great food and atmosphere. Sit at the bar, because the bartenders are friendly, and the cocktails are fabulous. Their menu is impressive. They obviously have a wonderful chef.

Great food and drinks. Classic pub inside with high tops and bar side tables. On the higher end price but well worth it. Perfect for anyone out on a date. My personal favorite local spot.
