The Chipotle chicken was excellent. The brie cheese appetizer and the spicy catalan shrimp appetizer were great for sharing. Our server Scot was very knowledgeable and attentive. Definitely will do again.

Its been 4 years since I last visited here and a few things have changed. They have gone to a lighter style of cooking and have added Gluten free items to their menu.

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.
