Had the Kobe burger and asked for medium. It was served medium rare. My daughter had an unexpected allergic reaction to either the fish or the tarragon infused vegetables and management never offered to bring a different dish. The one food worth visiting the restaurant is their Public fries. Don't ask for catsup. You won't need it.

Came here on a Saturday after wine tasting. We didn't have to wait to sit inside, the patio was a little busy. The staff was very friendly. The food was good, we ordered a bunch of appetizers. The Mac and cheese was amazing. The goat cheese today was good, as well as the brussel sprouts. The only thing I did... More

We took our daughter here because she chose it for her anniversary dinner. She said it was a unique restaurant with really good and reasonably priced food. She was right on all accounts. We set outside on the patio and it was simply delightful. The atmosphere was pleasant and our server excellent. All their entries are unique so we chose... More

We were happy to have a new option for food and drinks. Environment is a little more formal/classy. The food menu is also a little toward the fine dining side. They have some signature cocktails and some good beers on tap. Seating is a bit minimal and parking can be a task on busy days. A few outdoor tables have... More

Have eaten here many times. There is a varied menu of vegetarian fare or dishes with meat, chicken or fish. I tried the mushroom burger with lettuce, tomatoes, and onions ( I requested them). The dressing on the burger was out of this world. The atmosphere is pleasant and casual. Outdoor seating is available. Excellent staff.

Another incredible find. We went during brunch. Our waiter, Caleb, was great and walked us through the menu. Bottomless mimosas and some really cool Bloody Mary's started things out. My wife's eggs Benedict was perfect as was my curried chicken salad sandwich. I also had their homemade cream soda. Outside dining available year around and musters make it very comfortable... More

We really enjoy this spot in Old Town. We always enjoy the outside seating. Weekend nights have live music. Crowd is mellow till around 9pm then it gets a little crazy. For us older folks we just plan on leaving by 9. I really enjoy the seasonal menu. Grilled romain has been my favorite and incredible garlic friends

If you're in the area, this is a great place to try. Their menu changes every 4 months but I think their famous Kobe burger is a keeper! Grilled 10oz of wagyu beef topped w/ cheddar, red wine onion chutney, citrus baby kale on a soft bun dressed w/ black garlic aioli and yes fries - all amazingly good. We... More

Description
PUBlic House roosts in the heart of Old Town Temecula among rustic, nostalgic buildings. Since 2009, we have served the finest fare in a truly unique restored home from the 1950s. PUBlic House is discreet at first glance. As you walk up to our hosts you only just hear the life music and busy, joyful activity tucked out back awaiting you. This aspect of PUBlic House always makes dining an intimate rendezvous. Whether you are having a sweet heart-to-heart in the patio garden or catching up with friends on the balcony, PUBlic House romances with charm.

Our customers describe PUBlic House as "Chill" and "Funky Cool". It's true, Fridays through Sundays you will rock the rhythm of live music 'til the wee hours. Staff say Sundays are especially relaxing due to the clientele vibe and live acoustic music. Throughout the year, PUBlic House's patio garden remains relaxing with the hum of friends and family dining on fine food and drink that uncommonly delight them. You enjoy dining in many different seasons. So, in steamy summers the balcony and patio garden sparkle with mist. In winters we get it toasty with outdoor heaters and warm, rich menu items. Welcome to the family!
