Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Rude & disrespectful customer service from Karen. Our first time visiting Temecula wine country, we tried to do a tasting at Fazeli today and Karen treated us like crap. After standing at the bar for a long time, Karen told us to move closer to her at the bar. We then tried to introduce ourselves from the Napa wine industry and that we were in the process of relocating to nearby Orange county. She cut us off and didn't let us finish our introductions. Complained to us how busy she was and was sternly focused on announcing that we would "get no discount" from her...? We had no problem paying the $25 per person tasting fee, and are members of several wine clubs in various other wine countries, but we were so stunned at Karen's disrespect that we walked out and discussed Karen's behavior with the Manager. We then tried our 2nd Temecula winery, nearby Leoness Cellars. Their customer service was very civil, so we gladly paid $50 for our tastings there, joined the Leoness Gold club, and bought a case of wine. We've been visiting/tasting at wineries for decades in many different states and countries, Karen at Fazeli ruined our first Temecula experience.

My husband and I have visited this winery and restaurant now three times, twice most recently with friends who are members there. And while I really want to like Fazeli, our experience is always the same – a pricey bill for very average wines and mediocre food.

Our first visit was on a slow weekday with only one other table occupied. We waited so long to even be acknowledged that we almost left before getting a chance to order! Our server seemed focused on the other table (perhaps members?), and was inattentive to us even after ordering wines and food. She simply delivered the order to our table with no follow-up, and gave us the bill. When with friends who were members on the two subsequent visits, service was better.

In general, I find the wines to be very overpriced for the quality. While they sell several red wine mini half-bottles (375ml or two-6 oz glasses) for $24, full bottles of red start at $55, and the whites are $30+. If you like sweet wines, which I do not, this is the place for you – they have quite a few. I don’t believe they offer any sparkling wines.

We’ve also been consistently disappointed with Baba Joon’s food. The beef on the steak & blue flatbread was very dry and chewy, and on our most recent visit, I was only able to detect a few tiny bits of chicken in a fairly flavorless chicken ciabatta club which was mostly comprised of arugula and parsley with some undercooked bacon to boot.

So as a Temecula local, I’m sorry to say that Fazeli’s is not a favorite of ours.

Came here for a photoshoot, the wine was amazing however the customer service needs improvement. Upon arriving, the photographer and I asked one of the servers if we were allowed to shoot in the location. She asked and said it wasn’t an issue. Once we started shooting, another server came and rudely told us to shut down the shoot, with no explanation or reasoning. I asked if it was but of my dress because my dress was a little revealing, she said yes so I changed to a less revealing dress. After about 45 minutes of shooting the same server came back told us to shoot down the shoot again with no explanation again. At this point I’m assuming it is because I am a black woman in their space. Never again will I attend this winery ran by a pretentious, prejudice owner.

We came to enjoy a family lunch celebrating our 24 year old’s birthday. When we booked for a group of eight, we were not told we would be prohibited from sitting at one table and would be prohibited from even positioning the chairs at the two tables so four of our eight family members would not be sitting with their backs to each other. Then, our food came out erratically, with one of our orders completely forgotten. And, what on the menu is described as a walnut cream cheese dish was served with some baggers slices and some cut bread of some type. I am not sure if they thought we would not notice? But it did not matter anyway. The dish was so over cooked that it was a dry, bitter brown glob that no one wanted to eat. Finally, they had no dessert to offer. Do not think we will ever return.

Our first stop on our tour & after several other wineries, our favorite! Our server (Corey) was fabulous. He is savvy - knew his wines & guided us to what we preferred. Not too shy on their prices, but wine was great. Started with whites & ended with a rich, bold red. Corey - good luck in school - you have a future in wines!!! Thanks for making our tasting so enjoyable.

Somewhere between Avensole (lower quality) and Gershon Bachus (the best in the area). Some hits and misses. Liked Ruckus and Reisling - some others were even better, but on the expensive side. Label design on some of their bottles was great, service was outstanding. The team here loves their wine and job.

Awesome day celebrating with my friends and family for upcoming wedding. Karen was our server and she was great at explaining the tastings we all received. The grounds here are exceptional and beautiful wih stunning views. The staff so friendly especially on such a busy day. Can't wait to come back and tast with her again.

Pamela provided an excellent description of the wines and went above and beyond in helping us find our way around Temecula. I didn't try any of the white wines, because I know I'm not a fan. But I tried six reds, and there were only two that I didn't love. Tastings were generous.
