Description: Sitting high atop Temecula's breathtaking wine country, Meritage at Callaway offers guests incredible panoramic views of the rolling hills and vineyards. At one of the most relaxing, tranquil and truly unique Temecula winery restaurants guests can enjoy a delightful array of fresh, farm-to-table, made from scratch meals. The menu, which is paired with Callaway's award-winning wines, changes seasonally. Executive Chef, Josh Diamond believes in serving his guests only the freshest, most delectable meals. Chef's cooking philosophy stems from his passion for quality food, creating in the kitchen and farming. This is apparent not only in his dishes but also in the fact that he maintains an onsite greenhouse and garden for Meritage. Many of the ingredients used by the restaurant come from the greenhouse and garden when available, otherwise Chef sources and supports seasonal, sustainable food from local farmers. Come in and taste the difference!

Stopped in for lunch and a tasting. Excellent and friendly service by Ian. We had the ceviche, a house salad and the pig tacos. The food was good and well-portioned. Very nice setting in terms of the view and seating area. While not exceptional, I would return when in the area.

Had a very nice lunch at Meritage at Callaway - a business associate recommended it and with good reason. Excellent service and food was great too. Very large portions - I had the Mahi special which had a very large portion of Mahi Mahi - cooked perfectly. My associate had the Prime Rib sandwich - it was like a whole portion of prime rib served open-faced - he ate about half of it - it was very good too.

We drove up from our family reunion in Palm Springs to have lunch and wine we were not disappointed! The views, the food, the wine all excellent! And our waitress Jamie was the best! She knew the wines, the food, and made our meal memorable!

The food there is good, but overpriced. We had one seared ahi appetizer, and shared a sandwich with one glass of wine each and it was over $80.00 for lunch!

This restaurant is perched on a hill overlooking a beautiful vineyard. However, the menu is very pedestrian and not very inspired. This place has so much potential and it is a shame they cannot improve their menu and offerings (they need to look at what Goat & Vine is doing). Definitely order one of the specials if available. One of the great things is that this is one of the few winery restaurants open for dinner on the weekends.
