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.

Came here for vacation and this was the second time I have... More

This is an upscale restaurant but with reasonable prices. The fresh made bread is a great start to excellent food. The three mushroom soup is creamy and never enough although the serving is generous indeed. The salads are fresh and the dressing not overbearing and comes on the side. The Catalan Spicy Shrimp were cooked to perfection and lived up... More

Wonderful lunch menu, great wine and beautiful view. Good selection of salads and sandwiches, even burgers and flatbread choices. If you like full bodied red wines, the amante is a great choice.

The view from Pinnacle is an added plus to the dining. We annoyed a wonderful lunch with excellent service on a visit to wine country in Temecula. It is a bit pricey for lunch, but well worth it, and one of the nicer winery restaurants open for lunch.

We loved it for lunch today. Excellent food, reasonably priced, and super service. The chocolate dessert was as great as the view!
