“Excellent food - service Not so much”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

We were seated only a few minutes after our reservation time. The person who seated us was not too smooth in removing the extra place settings at the table and the we waited just a bit too long for attention from the waiter and even longer before getting a glass of water - not to mention the wine. The food was excellent and served well -- but (and this is a particular peeve of mine) my water glass was only re-filled when I asked and the completed dishes were only picked up after I set them aside and pointed to them. Just not quite up to snuff for a place attempting to project a "top of the line" image. Of course, you might want to go for the view - of the parking lot, Dick's sporting goods and a strip mall.

“Great ambiance!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Vintana is a very nice upscale restaurant in Escondido. There really aren't any others in the area that offer the true dining experience that Vintana does. It is on the third floor of the Lexus dealership. While I have not dined outside, they have private cabanas that look as though they would accommodate 6-8 people. The service and food were excellent. We have been twice and both times I haven't gotten the filet. It is delicious. I overheard a patron come in while we were waiting to be seated and he requested a table for 4 and was told there was a three hour wait so if you are planning to go, make sure you call in advance for a reservation. You will not be disappointed

“Nicest restaurant in Escondido”
Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

Simply put, Vintana is the nicest restaurant in Escondido. The quality of service, food and ambience is unmatched. Sure, you need to pass a bunch of beautiful cars to get the restaurant. They aren't trying to sell you one so just enjoy the view. I have eaten there a couple times and have been increasingly impressed with each visit. It is a beautiful and classy restaurant with genuine, warm service. And the food and wine selection are amazing!

“An Unusual Setting for an Upscale Restaurant - But it Works!”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

The views, ambiance, architecture and very creative food that is pleasant to the palette makes up a great dinning experience which is very welcomed to Escondido and to North County. Vintana is a great place to celebrate special occasions and take in a beautiful sunset while dinning. I highly recommend reservations for the weekend crowd. Vintana is not a place for casual beach attire.
