“Delicious with a view!”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

This restaurant was recommended to me, and I will continue to pass along the recommendation! We originally went for wine tasting, but there were only a few on the list that were my style (sweet whites). So after looking around the beautiful grounds & vineyards, we sat outside for lunch. For starters, they have cute little baskets for each table so that you do not have to dirty your purse by placing it on the ground. The mist allows you to enjoy the outdoors and the sun without getting uncomfortable. The only downfall was there were alot of bugs around us, but nothing that could be prevented by the restaurant. The view is amazing, and the food just as good! They bring out a large loaf of bread for starters. My mom and I shared the med. wrap with fries and the chicken pesto pizza and both were delicious and we even brought some home!

Thanks for taking the time to post about your great dining experience at The Restaurant at Ponte. We're so pleased you enjoyed the view and your meal.

Regarding the bugs, this time of year it is common to see a slight increase of flies due to the agricultural surroundings. This is just temporary and will dissipate very soon as the season progresses.

Thanks again!

“30th wedding anniversary”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

We did the wine tasting which is in the front of this restaurant and then wandered out the back of the building where we found an outdoor restaurant. It was a very hot afternoon but we decided to give it a try anyway. It is nestled in between the beautiful gardens they have in the back and the buildings where they have weddings or other such events and they are very a serene and peaceful area. I had the chicken sandwich and it had an amazing flavor hubby had a burger and we had Ponte vineyard wine of course that was wonderful! Flies were a problem but we were eating outside!

Wonderful review, thanks so much for sharing with us. We're pleased that you chose to dine at The Restaurant at Ponte for your 30th wedding anniversary.

Regarding the flies, they are common in wine country and the farming community this time of year, but are a temporary by-product that will disappear very soon.

Thanks again!

“Pricey and tasty”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

The food is delicious. They offer a wide variety of foods... and wines obviously. The grounds are lovely and misters are available for those really hot days. Try the meatloaf sandwich.

“Birthday Dinner”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

We had dinner here for my birthday. We are wine club members so we had a special appetizer which was great. There was live music playing which was very nice. There was a wedding reception going on but this did not interfere with the experience. We had a great view and our food was outstanding. We both had the special which was a crab ravioli. They were outstanding and fresh and it was a large portion. They gave me a nice sundae for my birthday which was nice. We had the calamari appetizer which was outstanding and a very large portion.
