My wife and I have had several meals here at The Restaurant at Ponte. The level of service is outstanding as well as each of the different meals I have had. Last week when we took our daughter I had the Sanddabs and it was delicious as well as the cream of asparagus soup. If your planning on going there on the weekend make sure you make reservations or you will be waiting a long time to get a table.

Everything we had was fresh and delicious. They had a new spring menu started and we have numerous appetizers and main dishes, all excellent. The setting was nice right in the winery with views outside as we were on the patio. Service was great. Recommend reservations as it got crowded.

Really enjoyed our alfresco dining while listening to a acoustic rock guitarist. The duck pizza was unique & yummy. The pumpkin risotto was fabulous. Wait staff was attentive without being intrusive. Great romantic atmosphere.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful experience at Ponte. We sat outside on the covered patio. The weather was perfect. Our server was so nice and attentive, the food was excellent. We ordered the small charcuterie plate, it was rather large and full of great meats, cheeses, nuts and crackers. It really more than two people can eat, especially if you are ordering other items. We also ordered an arugula salad and a Kobe burger, both very good.

I had to try their wines, so I ordered a flight of red. All three varieties were very good expecially the Super Tuscan. The tasting room is really nice too. The people are very friendly.

I can't wait to go back, I definately will, I love going to Temecula and I am so pleased that we decided to try The Restaurant at Ponte.
