After we had a wine and cheese pairing in the barrel room, we decided we wanted to eat lunch and although the winery restaurant was extremely busy our host was able to coordinate reservations with an hour wait. We ordered a bottle of wine and listened to music in the barrel room for an hour then our host walked us... More

The food here was amazing!! Enjoyed the cheese board, oysters Rockefeller and Sangria, only problem was the construction which I'm sure is going to make the place even a better place to visit. looking forward to going back.

After a short stop in the cellar, we enjoyed a great lunch at the restaurant. Between the three of us, we split two orders of their outstanding fries (bacon, Parmesan and creole) and each had a half salad. For lunch this was just perfect and of course, accompanied by an excellent glass of wine. One of the ladies had the... More

The restaurant is currently under construction so not serving food. The wine bar was terrific. We bought a bottle of Zinfandel. They had the best wines we tasted in Temecula that day.

Poor service and low quality food encompasses the manufactured environment. I will not come back and as a senior reviewer id recommend you don't step foot.

they have so many unique dining options on their menu. I believe the menu also changes seasonally and is dependent on what the chef thinks up to prepare. The Gorgonzola fries were out of this world!

Don't bother with the Oysters Rockerfeller, there are no oysters! Everything else was just ho-hum. Really hoping for a nice restaurant in Temecula soon. If it's going to compete with Paso Robles, Santa Ynez, or Napa, for wine tasting, Temecula needs to get better restaurants.

Service good, but food not: salty Mac&cheese, oysters were chopped up pieces, instead of whole (not good). We're locals wishing for good restaurants in Temecula. We've had a good experience in the past, but now disappointed.

We had a lovely lunch here last week! There were 5 of us, and we ate small-plate style and ordered the charcuterie plate, the sea bass, and the macaroni and cheese. All were delicious. And the covered outdoor dining area was delightful! And or course, the wine was fabulous!
