History
This venue was originally two separate structures: the home of Miguel Yorba Adobe and the Juzgado, or court and jails. The former was built in 1797, while the later was not established until 1812. The cocktail lounge walls in El Adobe were once part of the Miguel Yorba Adobe. The ground beneath the foyer originally served as a passageway for stagecoaches, until it was repurposed for the Santa Fe Railroad in 1888. The two properties were unified in 1910 as a store and residence. The restaurant entered the scene in 1948, opening grandly with a military wedding celebration.

    I loved working with this venue. Herlinda (the events coordinator) was very communicative, organized, helpful, and professional. She even coordinated with the florist directly. The entire process was smooth and the event was pulled off wonderfully. The food is delicious, the venue is gorgeous, and the staff is amazing. I took advantage of the casita behind the venue. It was incredibly useful for getting ready and getting away for a moment during the cocktail hour. I highly recommend El Adobe de Capistrano for any event.

    Our wedding isn't until next year, but we have already booked this location. The service we have received for all of our planning so far, has been fantastic. The staff is very friendly and has gone out of their way to make sure we get exactly what we want. The food is great. I am very happy that we have chosen this location for our reception.
