"Love the food! Love the service! Love the location! But not a comfy cozy place. The tables are so small and the small wooden chairs make it impossible to just sit back and relax. We will go back but will try the patio next time."

"My daughter ordered pancakes and got waffles. My mom ordered waffles with bananas foster and got plain waffles. The coffee my husband got was cold. My mom and I ordered coffee with our dessert and never got any coffee. When I mentioned it to the server, he did nothing and could care less that our entire meal was a giant disaster. Horrible service."

"Food was great! Service was good. Felt a bit disconnected sitting outside in the front entrance area. They were proactive in leaving the water pitcher so we wouldn't have to keep asking. Presentation was very nice and taste was excellent! Sauces were very tasty and well thought out. We tried the Calamari, Artichoke, Egg Rolls, Sun-Dried Tomato Soup, Mussels. And they were very liberal with the bread which complimented several of the dishes that we tried."

"You are better off buying a premium steak and preparing it yourself. I have dined here about 6 times and I can tell you that each experience is hit or miss. There is no consistency. I think 6 times is enough to opine about a restaurant. I won't be going back.
I went there again last Friday with a friend and the server did not know what a "torte" was although it was lighted on the menu. The server did not know what a "Long Island steak" was this was listed as a special. The server could have been employed at Denny's for all I know. The food was mediocre and so was the service."

"Sun dried Tomatoes was one of the first restaurants I visited when I first moved here almost a year ago. I loved it. I sat outside on a beautiful warm day and it was lovely. They have terrific wines and a great deal. It was my favorite restaurant. We were finally able to return, and I walked away less than impressed. The ahi tuna that had been so good before, lacked taste. The steak my brother had was tough. The service was good, but the food was sadly lacking. I don't believe I will be taking guest there again."

"I've dined on a weekday for lunch at sundried in SC and it was fabulous. Sunday in SJC not the case. Met a girlfriend for mimosas and lunch. Could barely talk over all of the screaming kids. Definitely not a place to relax, dine and chit chat. Had to flag down the waiter to refill the Bottomless mimosas. Waiter was not very attentive. Food was good, not as great as I had remembered. I had the half chopped salad with tomato soup. I'll choose someplace else next time I want to meet a girlfriend for brunch"

"We visited during OC restaurant week. Ate off that menu. It was very good, and measured up well. The wine was good (from the happy hour menu) and the dinner was very nice. The chocolate dessert was a bit dry, but this was ok after such a large meal. Love going to the Sundried!!!"

"Great food...the tomato soup is sooooo good! The service was a little slow, but it was the Swallow's Day Parade & street fair day."

"We went for OC Restaurant Week and really enjoyed it. There was something for everyone on the menu, and the drinks were great. I highly recommend the San Clemente cosmo, which was citrusy and tart with just the right amount of alcohol. The menu had lots of options--I got the "noodle-less" vegetarian lasagna, and my coworkers got the lamb and steak. The desserts, chocolate cake and key lime pie in a jar, were just the right size. We liked the steak, the lasagna and the key lime pie best.
We ran into one problem which is that the food came out late. We waited for about 15-20 minutes for the main course and the waitress was largely absent, so we couldn't get a second drink. The manager came out and apologized about the wait due to the OC Restaurant Week crowd. She also gave us a discount on the bill without us having to ask. Definitely worth coming for a nice dinner out."

"Took our Mom here for her Birthday lunch. Surprised to learn it was restaurant week so we each enjoyed a starter, entree and dessert for only $20 each. We were short on time because my Mom had to get back to lunch, so we asked our server for speedy food service. He was accommodating and understanding and the food was great."

"I go out so I can have great food and service! If I don't get those two things what's the point of going out? Lately it's really hard to find any proper service or good food even! Rarely do you get both! And here we did!"

"I met my girlfriend for lunch and we really enjoyed ourselves. The wait staff was attentive and the food was delicious. The tomato soup is so creamy while the chicken salad has this yummy dressing over tender chicken and mixed greens. I would definitely go back."
