Very pretty views, great service

We had a very nice time at Pinnacle. They had some great vegetarian options too, which I really enjoyed. The wine selection of course was fantastic, being that we were at a winery. Will definitely visit again.

The restaurant situated on a hilltop has a nice view over look the surrounding area. Enjoying the lunch here; Mediterranean style food are good(although it's not excellent if u compare with those in the metropolitan areas), the 2013 Falkner Chardonnay is quite good. Overall, we had a very relaxing lunch with good memory.

The Pinnacle is a fantastic restaurant to enjoy great food, a beautiful view and spectacular wine. The service on the day of our visit was top notch. After our wonderful lunch we did a wine tasting and enjoyed the view for a few more hours with live music to listen to. All the sommeliers were very friendly. If ever I... More

The panoramic view was awesome. I was disappointed in the food so I will hesitate when invited to go again. The food had very little flavor and lacked enough embellishments to make it appealing.

A restaurant, high on a hillside, in the midst of vineyards all around, relatively new, with faux Italian columns---what's not to like about this setting? So the visitor is in a good mood from the get-go. Lunch was pleasant and the food generally tasty. However, the soup, while good, was not as hot as soup should be when served. A... More

The Pinnacle Restaurant is located at The Faulkner Winery in Temecula, Ca. Wine Country. The restaurant is high on a hill and there are lots of windows overlooking the vineyards of Temecula. There is a wide variety of choices on the menu and something for everyone's taste. They serve Faulkner wines of course to compliment the very good food.

I had read and heard that this place was THE place to go for excellent food. My husband's pork chop was the worst and he was sick all afternoon which really cut into our 2 day trip to Temecula.

I am so pleased to find such good food to enjoy with a breathtaking view in Temecula. I had the Wild Mushroons with Grilled Chicken Pasta paired with Falkner's very pleasing Sauvignon blanc wine. We have many good winery restaurants here but the chef, coupled with this photogenic view, are a must-see. Did I mention the view? 😁
