My wife and I were at the Vintage, for a pre-Valentine dinner, Reservations are strongly suggested. When you make your reservations, ask to be seated in the antique railroad car, I believe it dates back to 1920? Very romantic, the wait-staff is excellent, the bar maintains a vast selection of "beverages". We always order our favorite dinner option - Hanger... More

We've eaten here on several occasions and I've yet to have a meal worthy of the price charged. They charge steakhouse prices -- expect to pay over $30 for most entrees. However, they don't deliver steakhouse quality food. My steaks were over-cooked and tasteless -- which may be why they offer a variety of sauces to add some flavor and... More

We had a Groupon for the Vintage steak house. Think we paid 50 for a 4 course dinner for two. Food was good and service good. We started with an apatiser to share goat cheese on broiled tomatoes on toast. Then we each had a spinach salad. Very good. The wife had the citrus gulf shrimp with twice baked potato... More

Our second time eating here. The food was good as usual, but our first time waiter was so very attentive and so very knowledgeable on the menu with his suggestions, this time the service was not up to par. At last the food was still great. We had the pork chops and I had the shrimp. both of us loved... More

Had Brunch 2 times this summer. First time steak was perfect second time quality went way down. I always like the feel of sitting in the train car. The service is a bit slow but we really liked the waiter we had both times. The helper was slow and never brought us little sides we asked for so, that is... More

My in laws brought us to this quaint and unique steakhouse to celebrate our anniversary. They have done an amazing job of transforming these rail cars into a truly great dining experience. The attention to detail and way of incorporating historical elements really brings a feeling of nostalgia. The drinks were delicious and the steaks were done to perfection. They... More

A friend recommended that we try this place and what a great evening. We ate in the train car. The atmosphere was so much fun and the food exceptional. The steaks were juicy and perfectly cooked. The salads were fresh and tasty. Vegetables were perfectly cooked, not too soft not too hard. Great baked potato that was light and flaky... More

My husband and I were seating in a restored train dining car. The booth was cozy and lighting soft. The baguette rolls were crunchy with soft interior. My husband ordered a rib eye, I ordered salmon. The meal comes with steamed vegetables, creamed corn and a side of your choice. It is a romantic place for couples . We had... More

This place has great food. Order off the menu for a tomahawk steak. This is a real treaty for anyone hungry. The wine choices are wonderful . They also have a full service bar. You get to dine in a old train car which is really cool.

My wife and had lunch at The Vintage Steakhouse this week and we had a wonderful experience. We had taken the train to San Juan Capistrano and the restaurant is at the place where the train stops. We were seated in a booth in one of the Pullman rail cars which was very comfortable and we felt special. Our server,... More
