We're in Temecula fairly often and have eaten multiple times at Thornton, Wilson Creek, and Ponte, all of which have great food and either views or atmosphere. So this was our first experience at the Pinnacle Restaurant at Falkner Winery -- which we chose because we wanted to try something new; because it has excellent on-line reviews; and because it...

My wife and I came here for lunch while touring Temecula's wine country and we're not impressed. We had heard rave reviews of Pinnacle from a balloon tour operator in the area and thought we'd give it a try. The restaurant looks more like a ballroom for events then a restaurant and noise echoes quite loudly, especially when you have... More

Always nice to eat at this restaurant. The view is fantastic, you can see pretty far in a clear day. It has the look and feel of countryside/winery type atmosphere. Food very good, I love the steak salad, bread is fresh. They have a seafood pasta that is also very well prepared. Never had a bad meal there. It is... More

Great variety of food and everything was well prepared. Being a club member gets you an extra little bonus. The prices aren't too bad either. The ambiance is really nice and it's very relaxing. The hours aren't the greatest but it's worth it if you can make it in.

Checked TA for a lunch stop on the way back to San Diego from Palm Springs. What a great experience. Oso Buco was incredible. Service was fantastic. Personal service from the chef was great. We will be back

Located on hill at Falkner Winery on Calle Cotento in Temecula, this restaurant offers great view of the vineyards. There is a tasting room to prepare for your meal and there is a gluten free menu! We tried grilled chicken sandwich on their gluten free rice bread which was tasty and the bread was soft, For dessert we had the... More

Friendly staff, wide-ranging menu, lovely views and comfortable surroundings. The steak salad is particularly good, together with a glass of their own Syrah. We never felt rushed and will definitely return. On a par with Baily's restaurant and slightly cheaper.

We had a lovely lunch at Pinnacle on a very hot day in September. The menu is quite diverse and the food was very good. There are gluten free and vegetarian selections as well. Our server was Tina and she was very attentive to us despite having a large and busy section with some difficult to please patrons. It had... More
