We sat in the patio for a sunday brunch. The food is always good here regardless of what you order and the portions are also pretty good. The drinks are very good as well. The service is always good and the patio area is a great area for dining. This is directly across from the Mission. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

What a fantastic building, beautifully decorated and an amazing ambience. Service was very good (thanks Joel) They have martinis on the happy hour menu for $6.00! Such a deal. I had a pomegranate one, and my gal pals had a cantaloupe one and a silk one, all were equally delicious. We also indulged in a piece of coconut cake, was heavenly!

This place exceeded my expectations. Food was good and the fire place den is nice! We have limited Fine Dinning Options in our historic small local town. I recommend giving this place a try.

Had lunch with my husband on a Saturday and we expected to wait a while for a table. The place was full but we got a table right away. You can choose from indoors or outside patio seating. The place is beautifully decorated, clean and uncluttered. The staff are friendly and professional. Our waiter described the lunch special so well it was hard not to have it! He had the fish and chips and it came with a delicious jalapeño creamy sauce that was worth the trip from Cucamonga. I highly recommend this place. It's right in the heart of Capistrano historic district and across the street from the mission. The only slightly annoying thing is that the women's restroom only has two stalls, but they are clean.

We had brunch at Cedar Creek during a very busy time and everything (service, attentiveness of our waiter, food presentation) was spot on and amazing. People were hanging out the door and the outdoor patio was packed when we arrived. But from the moment we sat down for our reservation (via Open Table) nothing could have been more perfect. There were a handful of large groups but the timeliness of ordering and our food appearing was perfect! Would definitely recommend the strata and lemon pancakes. But we saw many other dishes that looked very good too. The setting is quaint and lovely for both couples, families and special celebrations!
