We stopped here for lunch while exploring the neighboring wine country. The food is fabulous and the staff takes very good care of their customers. And the view of the surrounding landscape is just spectalular. We liked the suggested pairings of wines with various food items - and we utilized this suggestion with gusto! Great service - delicious, freshly prepared... More

The Pinnacle restaurant is excellent. I have always been treated with a warm greeting, great table, attentive service, excellent food and generally a great view of the Temecula Valley vineyards. The wait staff is friendly, promt and fun to talk to. I usually go during the week, so it is not overcrowded and it is a very relaxing setting. Nice... More

I liked the presentation of the entres and wines paired to delight the diner. What I did not like is the exterior parking lot dust due to the restaurant being next to the vineyard. Other than that annoyance that is part of the experience, let it be noted that "wine country experience" in Temecula, California is at par with the... More

The last couple of years my wife and I have been making the Pinnacle restaurant our lunch stop and we've never had a bad meal. Service is great, the view outstanding and the price is very reasonable. Pair up the meal with a glass of Falkner riesling and enjoy the rest of your day.

If you're looking for a wonderful place for lunch in the wine country of Temecula, you might want to try this restaurant. It has plenty of parking, is spacious and nicely decorated and the food and service are first rate. We've eaten here several times and it does not disappoint. The servers are very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu.... More

I convinced my husband to try it out based on all the raving reviews I read on here, and boy were we in for a not so pleasant surprise.. Regardless of the much nicer winery restaurants we've tried in Temecula during our yearly 24-hour wine tasting getaways, this place needs serious rehab! My hubbie's medium-rare burger came beyond well-done and... More

My family and relatives decided to try one of the restaurants in Temecula wine country. We are not wine drinkers so after living here over 6 years, we have never had the interest to visit. After checking TripAdvisor, we decided on Pinnacle. I can tell you that as soon as you see the Pinnacle restaurant at the top of the... More
