Search this place out. It was only through word of mouth we found it and are we glad. The view of the vineyards is impressive, even though the weather didn't allow us to sit outdoors. Indoors is comfortable and well situated for good views. Our server was friendly, accommodating, and attentive. Food choices are varied and we were most pleased... More

Valentines Day lunch that went bad, so sad. Sirloin steak that couldn't be cut, mushy rice, foamy cake; not good, very unusual. Service (Rita) was excellent. This place is usually good, but don't go with the "specials".

We get to Temecula every 2 months to pick up wine shipments from various wineries where we are members. We have tried other winery restaurants but now eat exclusively at Pinnacle. The food is awesome and the staff treat you like family and know you by name. Tina at Pinnacle and Holly the Wine Club Manager are truly exceptional!

We usually eat at the outdoor winery restaurants when we visit Temecula, but this day was cool and windy, so we opted for an inside meal here. The view of the valley is amazing, and the food and service equaled the view. I had the pasta with seafood in a white wine sauce, and my husband had seafood cannelloni. Both... More

It wasn't bad or horrible by any means- but looking back at the meal, nothing stands out as WOW! You've got to try this! kind of... More

From the restaurant to the view, to the food, great place. Stopped for lunch and split the prime rib which was more than sufficient. I had chicken dumpling soup which would rate as one of the best ever.

Had to decide: (1) lamb lollipops or (2) California burger + the best mushroom soup out there. That burger (with pablano chile and egg) was outstanding w/the soup;-)

Had lunch here with a friend, both our entrees were great, and so was the dessert we shared. Service was excellent. We arrived on a Sunday right when they opened so we could sit anywhere for the great view. Prices were reasonable and the wine was very good. Came here for vacation and this was the second time I have... More
