We were a party of 6 and everyone's food was mediocre at best. We really had high expectations, because the menu was great, the views as well and we were all enjoying the wine. When the food came we were all a but underwhelmed, but didn't send anything, just wouldn't return.

The restaurant is next to the winery tasting room and it is perfect for a bite to eat before tastings of Temecula begins. I would recommend it as a winery tetaurant as they have burgers, soup, salads, pastas... But not as a must go to restaurant. I have been there twice and both times the hostess have been horrible buy... More

We had lunch reservations for a large party, I called hours before our reservation time and informed them we were running 30 minutes behind and was assured that was not a problem. When we showed up we were told they had a private event that day and we had to urgently put in our food order, all this before we... More

I would highly recommend this restaurant! Their food is absolutely delicious and the view is simply gorgeous! We had excellent service and will definitely be returning. This place was recommended to us by London Black Car wine tasting tours who know the great spots to taste and eat!

What a perfect place for a late lunch! We had a great table overlooking the hills & vineyards, super service, great wine & reasonable, excellent food. Everything about the experience was good. No negatives. We did a little wine tasting and then headed over to the restaurant. Personnel is very personable and friendly. The mushroom soup is awesome!

Ate late lunch here in the middle of wine tastings in Temecula. Loved it! Food was very tasty - we had salmon and steak and they were perfectly cooked. Falkner Wine complimented the meal perfectly. Service was outstanding and prices were reasonable. The wine tasting in an adjacent building was great too! Our bartender was fine and got some cute... More

I really like this restaurant. I want to order everything on the menu, so I'll have to go back. It's billed as a Mediterranean cuisine, and has a number of tantalizing seafood selections. I had the grilled ootopus, and it was wonderful. There are a number of creative choices. I believe their signature dish is lobster mac and cheese. They... More
