Had reservations made and their welcome was very warm. Great little restaurant for lunch. Server was great and the busperson was even better. Everyone was extremely attentive with great views.

The wine is, of course, wonderful. We had the chicken chipotle sandwich and the brie with apples, walnuts and raspberry puree. Every item was perfect and fresh. Wait staff was well-trained and friendly. It was a wonderful leisurely lunch with a wonderful view.

We eat at this restaurant several times a year when we visit Temecula - and it never disappoints us. Great service and the menu has something for everyone. All glass circular windows surround the restaurant so you truly enjoy a spectacular vineyard view while dining.

For the past several years, we have been touring Temecula wineries. About mid-day, it's a good time to take a break from drinking wine. We stopped at Pinnacle and now have a new favorite restaurant in Temecula! The scenery is breath-taking- very nice atmosphere in the restaurant as well. The wait staff is superb- attentive, but not overly pushy. One... More

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.
