We ordered appetizers and desserts for our at home party and they were delivered as promised and so yummy. I got the cold appetizers- asparagus wrapped in roast beef, deviled eggs, cucumbers with shrimp on top and caprese skewers. We had 50 people and I ordered a tray of each- they were gone! Would do it again! For dessert the... More

Based on Trop Advisor reviews, we had a late lunch at this restaurant. We focused on the appetizers with glasses of wine. The Sampler and one additional entry were generous enough for us...in fact, we skipped supper because they were so good and satisfying. These were possibly the best appetizers we have eaten in a long while. Service and suggested... More

My wife and I stepped in for lunch and received a brunch menu. We like the normal menu but decided to try brunch. Of course we started with an order of their signature tomato bisque and as always were highly pleased. My wife ordered a side of risotto and a side of quinoa and vegetables which is not included on... More

My husband & I were planning on watching a basketball game at J Serra High School but wanted to eat in the picturesque downtown which is a stone's throw away. We were very impressed with this restaurant. It was cozy and the staff was welcoming, knowledgeable, and efficient. Best if all, the food was delicious. As our Canadian son in... More

A lot of good eats here (as well as a good wine list), but one of our favorites for a light dinner ("light" relatively speaking!!) is the Comfort Food combo - a bowl of the incomparable Sun Dried Tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. Trust me, it's a meal! A nice glass of wine just tops it off perfectly.

This intimate little restaurant is excellent. It is quietly classy and serves very good food. I enjoy an elegant presentation of well-prepared classic dishes, with a twist of uniqueness, and this is an accomplishment of just that.

We sat outside on the small patio and watch people walking. The salad and soup for lunch was good. I would go back

Enjoyed tasty chicken pesto sandwich with truffle french fries after an adult cucumber cocktail at the bar. Bar and table service were prompt, courteous. Bartender brought drinks to our table 6' away. Lively vibe indoors.

We live in San Diego and our daughter and son-in-law live in Irvine. The Sundried Tomato Bistro is our favorite place to meet for brunch and I love trying new brunch items every time we meet. I also take a taste from my family's selections so I have tasted a wide variety of their delectable delights! Make a reservations so... More

This was delicious! It was a warm day and I still ordered their signature "comfort combo" of their creamy sundried tomato soup and one of the most amazing grilled cheeses (add the bacon) I've ever had! The business casual atmosphere was calming and a great place to be able to sit and chat with friends. They also had a really... More
