Chicken Pesto Pasta

Amazing dinner! Every bite was scrumptious, the flavors married perfectly together and I could not wait to come back and order the same thing again. It really was that good! And not to mention the portion size was large. Definitely big enough to share with a salad. Highly recommend!

Fried Brussels Sprouts

The fried Brussels Sprouts were perfect! The blend of the seasonings and bacon pair with the wine we selected was a fantastic meal. The service was also very good. Our waiter was kind and attentive. We very much enjoyed our evening and meal.

Pepperoni or Sausage

We came on Saturday evening for the live music! Great time with kids and it's even dog friendly! We joined the wine club (great deal) and loved our food.

Chicken Pesto Pasta

I had this for the fist time New Year's Day. Delicious, perfectly cooked pasta, tender juicy chicken, perfectly seasoned , not too much pesto. Great pairing of flavors.

Chicken Pesto Pasta

Some people like beer goggles. I prefer wine glasses. I came here with my boyfriend. We started off the night with some yummy sweet potato fries and some wine. Then came the Chicken Pesto Pasta with delicious creamy pesto sauce, Mixed Veggie Pizza, and some more wine. Lastly, we topped off our dinner with a bottle of wine because wine not?

Mushroom Truffle Flatbread

This is by far the BEST flatbread I have ever had! Me and my boyfriend make it a point to come here at least once a month (45 min drive) because we love this place so much!!! We also love the strawberry bruschetta, fish tacos, and the Brussels! We sit at the wine bar and enjoy the tastings or get a bottle and sit outside! I love this place so much and have sent many clients and friends there!

Fig Bruschetta

I haven't been to Rancho Capistrano in a while, but I haven't forgotten about the Strawberry Brushetta! I remember every dish I have had here has been amazing, but this Bruschetta stuck in my mind! The perfect starter to any meal!

Pan Seared Salmon

The ambience, and service was top notch. My pan seared salmon was delicious and perfectly prepared, paired by the waiter's suggestion of Monarch chardonnay. We enjoyed a wonderful relaxing evening. A new favorite!

Fried Brussels Sprouts

This is one of my favorite menu items. You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu, it's all delicious! The Brussels sprouts are crunchy and have an amazing balsamic drizzle that makes me want to lick the bowl.

BBQ Chicken Flatbread

The barbecue chicken flatbread is melt-in-your-mouth delicious! It has the perfect amount of tangy barbecue sauce, delicious chicken, and over the top melty cheese. Everything else on the menu looks delicious but we continue ordering the same thing over and over because it's amazing… especially with a glass of Remington 🍷

Ahi Poke Salad

Let me begin by saying that before you get to the entrance you are already filled with excitement and anticipation. Rancho Capo Winery captures upscale and relaxed in their fantastic food selection, irresistible wines and tasteful choices in live entertainment. This is a must visit for San Juan Capistrano.

Chef's Special

Recently, I went to this restaurant for the first time and had a delicious chicken dish stuffed with mushrooms on top of a bed of carrots, broccolini, and mushroom risotto. It was so delicious! I would definitely recommend that dish

Rancho Chicken Caesar

This is not your typical Caesar salad! It's one of the classics with a twist! The sun dried tomatoes then cilantro dressing is the genius idea that keeps me coming back for more. I get this hands down every time I go there for dinner. It's a great dish for a picky eater (like myself) to try new things!

Amorette | Rosé of Pinot Gris

We love this spot. A cute little patio, a nice glass of wine, and a delicious BBQ chicken pizza is what my dreams are made of! Luckily for me I can get all three at the winery! Oh and the perfectly crispy pesto cilantro fries...yes please!

Gorgonzola Apple Flatbread

We love Rancho Capistrano! It's been a favorite spot of ours ever since it opened. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, but we love the Gorgonzola Apple Flatbread. Absolutely delicious! Some of our other favorites are the Brussel sprouts, poke stack, cheese plate, and we miss the lamb sliders. Rancho Capistrano is the perfect place!

Fried Brussels Sprouts

I don't like Brussels sprouts. Never have, thought I never would. This dish made me fall in love with them. That's right, not like, love them! The flavors were magical- crisp, earthy Brussels sprouts with salty prosciutto, not-so-subtle riffs of garlic, succulent parmigiano, and a tangy sweet balsamic reduction that tied everything together. I couldn't get enough of them and fought with my fellow diners for the very last crumb. Try them- they won't disappoint!

Gorgonzola Apple Flatbread

We absolutely love the Gorgonzola apple flatbread! I am a bit embarrassed to say, but we came 3 times in one week and had wine with this flat bread every time. We have since explored other menu options and have not been disappointed. So happy to have a location in San Clemente :)

Gorgonzola Apple Flatbread

We order the Apple Flatbread just about every time we visit. I get it that blue cheese is a favorite for many...but not for me :-) We get it on the side. The blends of apple, grapes, and bacon along with the mozzarella cheese and the touch of honey are delicious with a glass of wine. One of our favorites!

Cream of Tomato Soup

Hello there, fellow internet stranger! You're probably reading this while hungry and wondering, "Should I stroll over and give Rancho Capistrano Winery a try?" I've been there mate. So, I'll keep this short and sweet so that you may indulge in deliciousness. Flatbread is amazing! Cream of Tomato Soup, yum! Wine? More please! Great service, great atmosphere. You won't regret it.

Steak Salad

Steak was cooked perfectly and the salad was delicious with just the right amount of grapes and apples to complement the dressing. A great salad choice with beef instead of the usual chicken.

Fried Brussels Sprouts

Ally was right, Fried Brussel Spouts were amazing. A week later, the dish is fresh on my mind. The Brussel Sprouts were perfectly tender and accomplished by fresh parmesan slices and Bacon. It was a first for me with bacon. This dish took Fried Brussel Sprouts to a whole new level.

16 oz Boneless Hand Cut Ribeye

My husband and I made it a date night by the gorgeous fireplace on the patio, and decided to share the giant ribeye. I'm still thinking about it, so delicious! Always a special time dining at RCW!

Modjestka Peak | Pinot Noir

So smooth, flavorful and tasty. I'm not one to describe wines, especially ones who left a fonder memory of the good time I had last night but suffice it to say, you will not go wrong with this Pinot Noir.

Gorgonzola Apple Flatbread

The combination of flavors in this flatbread is INSANE. I order it every single time I come. It's so light & fresh but completely satisfies a "pizza craving"

Ahi Poke Stack

Fresh poke on diced mango - PERFECTION. Was perfectly balanced in flavors and chop sizes, and was much more filling than I thought it would be. Would definitely order again.

Fall Charred Salad

The Fall Charred Salad and Lamb Meatballs are my FAVORITE dishes. My friend had the Wedge Salad which I had a few bites of as well and it was delicious. Every time I stop in I order a new wine and new dish and it never disappoints. The staff is great too which is another reason I frequent this spot!
