Capistrano’s Restaurant – Embassy Suites – Orange County Airport North1325 E. Dyer Road Santa Ana, CA
The Embassy Suites Hotel, located five minutes from the John Wayne Airport, is an all suite hotel boasting a ten story high atrium with glass ceilings. The Gazebo, an open-air structure with a vine-laden canopy, is a favorite of brides for ceremonies.
This Mediterranean style atrium is full of lush greenery, waterfalls, bridges and koi ponds. A perfect location and setting for your wedding ceremony and reception. Wedding ceremonies are held in our atrium gazebo amongst this romantic setting. Our ballrooms can accommodate up to 300 guests. Guest parking is free.
On one side of the Atrium is Capistrano’s Restaurant. It provides an extraordinary indoor dining experience that makes you feel like you’re outdoors. Its most arresting feature, the Gazebo, is an open air structure with a vine-laden canopy that’s large enough to accommodate a ceremony or a few tables and chairs. A wide corridor with more tables shaded by green market umbrellas links the Gazebo to the restaurant. During the event, you can wander over to the adjacent Lounge for a cocktail or for some evening entertainment.
The Lounge’s white, pressed time ceiling contrasts with the glossy dark wood bar and pale peach walls. In keeping with the Colonial Indian theme, there’s an eye catching mural of an Indian jungle safari, complete with elephants, a maharajah or two and a wary tiger. Potted plants, brass ceiling fans and a comfy sofa give the bar a casual feel.
Capistrano’s is so beautifully decorated; it’s hard to take in the multitude of nicely designed details. Striped awnings over doorways, hand-sponged peach walls an Indian jungle mural, carved black enameled chairs, gleaming faux-marble columns, painted ironwork…. the list is longer than we have room for. As you gaze around you, the air gently stirring beneath brass ceiling fans, it’s not too hard to imagine yourself in a more exotic time and place.
