Tannins Restaurant and Wine Bar

Oct 28, 2015

South County locals looking for the ideal destination for fine wine, delicious cuisine and live entertainment need look no further than Tannins Restaurant and Wine Bar in San Juan Capistrano. Located at 27211 Ortega Highway, Tannins is characterized by a blend of Old World charm and rustic décor artfully enhanced with a modern flair – from its strong focus on wine and food pairings to its expansive menu of Northern and Mediterranean and Southern Italian cuisine along with delectable desserts and specials prepared fresh daily.

002tanninsI personally love Tannins for a few reasons; the food is exquisite, the service always exceeds expectations and the ambiance is unforgettable. On a recent visit, my friends and I enjoyed our meal in the restaurant’s “Cave,” a dining room that make you feel as though you are sampling Italian fare in the roaming hills of Tuscany.

Fragrant fresh from the oven bread and a flavorful olive tapenade arrive within minutes of seating.

Tannins features one of the most comprehensive – and extensive - selections of wines by the glass in the region with over 40 different varietals from which to choose. And its menu showcases a vast array of signature starters and salads, seafood, poultry, lamb, beef and pasta dishes.

For starters, the Artisan Cheese Board arrives with goat, Brie, blue and cheddar cheese, grapes and berries, candied pecans and honey crostini – perfect when paired with a glass of your favorite red or white. Other popular picks include the

Braised New Zealand mussels braised in garlic and white wine sauce and the bruschetta which tops lightly toasted Italian bread with chopped tomatoes, olive oil, vinegar, capers, Kalamata olives, basil and mozzarella.

003tanninsEntrees range from a lamb chops grilled to perfection and accompanied by red roasted potatoes, asparagus and lamb au jus and the risotto paella which combines fresh clams, green-lipped mussels, Tiger prawns, scallop, fresh fish and Spanish saffron rice.

With Happy Hour all night on Mondays and a menu that keeps your fork in hand long after you have had your fill, Tannins successfully pairs memorable moments, fine dining experience and friendly service.

More of a pizza person? Tannins pizza menu offers a plethora of possibilities – including gluten- and dairy-free accommodations. The Gourmet Veggie Pizza - topped with Roma tomatoes, artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, roasted garlic, spinach, goat cheese and a light pesto sauce – immediately caught our attention and didn’t disappoint.

The Butternut Squash Ravioli garnished with sage, hazelnut and truffle oil butter and the Fettuccini Toscana served with sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, basil and grilled chicken are among the restaurant’s most popular pasta creations.
Whatever you do, save a little room for a sweet treat – the Chocolate Bomba Spumoni is decadent strawberry, pistachio and chocolate gelato delight coated in hard chocolate.
