Nice selection of food and wine. Stopped in for lunch after wine tasting at the Falkner Winery. Very upscale setting, which would be perfect for any special event.

This restaurant, at Faulkner Winery, is set on a 1,500-foot hilltop, and offers a panoramic view of the valley below. Equally stunning is their brunch menu especially if you are a sea food lover. Shrimp cocktail cooked to perfection, crab claws, smoked salmon, and tuna sushi are just some of the sea food dishes that were prepared. The more traditional... More

Food was good and service was excellent but we thought prices were high for lunch. Almost went for the $20 "restaurant week" special menu with optional dessert for $6 but decided on small plates plus dessert instead. When we were ready to order dessert, we were told the $6 dessert was only available with the special menu, so we had... More

As my friend and I were trying to find a place to have lunch after our weight watcher meetingwe were recommended to try The Pinnacle restaurant at Falkner Winery. The small plates on the menu were very delicious and a good serving for a small plate. Yay! Price was reasonable. I had the spicy shrimp served with grilled ciabatta toasts... More

We recently had a celebration for my mother's birthday at the Pinnacle. It was in fact a nice place for lunch. The food was by everyone's account very good. I had a steak salad which was excellent with a very tender cut of steak. Others had the seafood portifino, a mushroom pasta, and a salmon dish that my mom said... More

My wife and I stopped in for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Both the food and the service were excellent. I will note that the menu is very heavy on the fish/seafood, so if you're looking for an entrée and not a burger or salad, then just be aware that there are only a few non-fish/seafood options are...

We visited the Pinnacle after a session of wine tasting . The reputation of the chef for being the best in the vineyards area didn't disappoint. Three veggies in my party and the chef was happy to accommodate them with alternatives to the menu. I can see why many would flock their for the weddings here. Great overlook for the... More

Please do yourself a favor and try this restaurant while in Temecula. I highly recommend the Lobster Mac & Cheese for lunch - it was mind-blowing! The servers were very accommodating and friendly, and prices were reasonable for the area.
