Haven't been here for awhile but felt like some German food (Chef and owner is Austrian). Wiener and Jager Schnitzle were great (most and not greasy). They have a very varied menu besides German food, ie lamb, venison, duck etc. Waitress was absolutely great even though she was alone.

A very nice and intimate place for a date. Quality food and good service. Not inexpensive but worth the visit.

As I have reviewed Cafe Mozart on several occasions, this review basically concerns an action by a Wait Staff member which was most generous. During another business trip to Corona, CA, my daughter and I managed to dine three times at Cafe Mozart. During an evening meal, after driving up from San Diego on the way back to Corona, there...

Valhalla fulfilled! Due to business, a trip to California was required. This opportunity provided the ability to again dine at Café Mozart in San Juan Capistrano after a 3.5 year absence. On entering the courtyard, Carla saw my daughter and myself and, after a “triple take,” we had a joyful reunion. Her husband and co-owner, Hans, then came out to... More

Tough to find location the first visit but worth the effort. Inside and outside dining - a pretty big place that never seems to be very busy. We've been 10 times in the last 4 months and have had great food and service every time. The soups are great, salads are fresh, entrees always come out hot and perfect. One... More

The day was a scorcher, but it was our 41st anniversary so we wanted to go out to lunch to have a private celebration. It has been 20 years since we went to Cafe Mozart, so we decided to give it another try. There was no one else in the restaurant and we opted to sit in the shade on... More

We have eaten at Café Mozart regularly over the past 20 years and it has never failed to please. The food is European, tending toward lighter German fare, like Wiener Schnitzel, which is perfectly prepare to that the crust is not greasy, but also features fresh fish, escargot, and best of all amazing desserts prepared by their resident pastry chef....

My husband, my 6 year old and I visited this place for lunch on Sunday. The place was almost empty only one table.

Wanted a nice restaurant to take my daughter to celebrate her Birthday. The day was rainy outside with unusual El Nino bringing greatly needed rain. We went for lunch and there was not another patron? I ordered Dunganess Crab Cakes, my daughter had a salad, and my wife had soup and quiche. Another couple came in while we were dining.... More
