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!
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 :)
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?
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!
Amazing flat bread and wine. Cooked just right and lower carb due to the flat bread.. Really recommend this dish..
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!
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!
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.
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 🍷
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.
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
Wonderful atmosphere, wonderful wine, delicious appetizers. Enjoyed the happy hour thoroughly on my Birthday. Great way to meet new people in the area.
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!
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!
Holy Heavens was the strawberry bruschetta delicious!! We are returning on Wednesday for my Dad's birthday and can't wait to eat this deliciousness!!
Every dish I have had - I have LOVED! I love the ambiance, the wine, the music, the fire at night, the service, the different niches and dining spots...it's all fantastic at RCW! My fave is your tomato soup and grilled cheese combo followed by that bomb cheese board - YUM!
It's delicious! Paired it with a pizza and salad as lunch for 2. Great wine, great food, great patio seating.
I really enjoyed my visit, from the beautiful and romantic atmosphere, excellent service, impeccable wine and delicious flatbread. I am allergic to mushrooms and the flatbread was still delicious! The chef was kind enough to accommodate. Such a great place to enjoy your time. I'm thinking about joining the wine club!
So delicious! One of my favorite plates here at this great eatery. Cant beat a summer evening with a little music, a little wine, and fantastic food!
Amazing. From the fig jam to the gorgonzola to the argula and balsamic. My taste buds are satisfied. Light and fulfilling.
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!
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 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.
This is just one of my fav...everything on the menu is amazing, extremely well prepared...
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.
What an amazing dessert and great way to end a visit to my favorite winery! Its the best lava cake filled with hot chocolate lava...yum!
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!
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.
I could eat these EVERY DAY! OMG! They were perfect - crispy, smoky, salty, parmesany! The PERFECT combination. Best I've ever had.
Awesome service and wine! Ahi Poke stack appetizer was delicious!
The steak is cooked perfectly. This is my favorite salad at RCW
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"
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.
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!
I'm totally guilty of craving the strawberry bruschetta and a glass of the Sangiovese practically everyday! And my husband is happy to oblige and get his own fried Brussels sprouts (though somehow I always get him to share a bite or two or three!) and beer flight. A sunny afternoon on the Rancho Capistrano Winery patio is the perfect start to my Friday evening!
Absolutely amazing! The service is over the top and take their time to explain all the different types of wine. LOVE Aly
So fresh ! Big enough to share and extra delicious.
