need rec's for special birthday dinner near san clemente

Looking for a unique, special place to take my Mom for a special birthday. She loves Beach Fire and Vine. I want to try something different. One idea is to go to Iva Lees. She doesn't want to eat Mexican or Sushi. She is open to anything else. Thanks.

  1. For higher end "special occasion" dining there is always the Michael Mina "Stonehill Tavern" in Dana Point. Also "Studio" restaurant at the Montage resort would be another choice.
