I frequent Thornton and Cafe Champagne frequently. Relaxing place to dine and wine taste at the same time. I highly suggest the hamburger and the steak sandwich! Staff is always friendly.

Four of us met in Temecula at the Cafe Champagne to have lunch. One couple drove up from San Diego and we came over the mountain from Palm Desert. This was a great place to meet for lunch. We started with a nice glass of their Brut Reserve Champagne. It is very nice. Our entrees were: spinach salad with grilled... More

The restaurant at Thornton Winery always has a selection of great food for the refined palate. The executive chef adds a bit of elegance to every plate, and the service is always great. Pair these with Thornton's wines and sparkling wines, and life is good. Be sure to check out the Champagne Jazz series, too.

As my wife was not at home, I went to the Cafe Champagne with some good friends for Thanksgiving dinner this year. I had rarely gone out to a restaurant for Thanksgiving in the past and did so with some trepidation. What a wonderful surprise. The restaurant was full but by staggering the times for diners,the staff was able to... More

We enjoyed a delightful Sunday Brunch. Food presentation and taste was excellent. A great outside location to relax and enjoy the meal. Service was good. We will be back.

Nice place for a bite to eat and a way to get settled into the wine tasting mode before starting the tasting. Right the beginning of the trek, so great place to stop on the outset.

We liked the name of the restaurant so decided to have lunch here - whilst the decor is dated and old-worldy- the staff are very pleasant and attentive - Jordan and John took great care of us - we chose to do the champagne tasting and choose dishes to share - so calamari, the tomato and mozzarella and the fromage(cheese)...

My wife and I have eaten many times at this restaurant but this time we came away disappointed. The white wine flight was excellent and served with gusto. However be warned; price creep has overtaken the menu. My wife's striped bass entre was $28.00 solo. Adding a dinner salad would have increased the tab by $14. Finally we were charged... More

Driving down winery row we saw their burger banner. The awesome big bacon burger on a soft fresh bun was the best burger we've had in a while and the first worth writing about. Served with a glass of their really good champagne and great crispy fries; it's the best brunch!! Lisa is the best, friendliest server! Worth asking for... More
