“Breakfast outside at Bouquet”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

The waiter was on top of everything, so I'll start with great service from him, however I recommend eating inside, the flies were terrible. The food was good and had a variety of selections, we had a vegetarian in our party of 5, so he was able to find a couple of things on the menu. The food service was very slow for not being busy at all on a Sunday at 11am. The grounds are gorgeous and the atmosphere very nice, but I gave the outdoor seating rating a "terrible" because we had to eat with one hand and shoo flies with the other. We would go back and eat inside next time.

Thank you for posting your experience at Bouquet. We're so pleased that you had a wonderful meal and great service. Regarding the flies on property: Ponte Family Estate is surrounded by farmland on all four sides. At this time of year, it is customary for farmers practicing sustainability in agriculture to farm with fresh compost instead of chemical fertilizers. The flies are attracted temporarily and then dissipate quickly. This is simply a temporary, natural by-product of staying in the country-side. We apologize for any inconvenience and invite you to come back again anytime.

Reviewed May 29, 2014

We were staying at the hotel and had brunch on Sunday morning before we headed out. We are wine club members which made this even better since we receive a discount on our dining. We sat outside on their patio which was very nice. It was a warm weekend but there was a good breeze and shade on the patio. The food was delicious and filling. Everything tasted very fresh. We would definitely come back again. We ate breakfast at the restaurant next door at South Coast Winery and found this meal much tastier and the prices were about the same. The service was better as well.

The food here is the best. The restaurant is so pretty, but they will need to make it larger serving such tasty food.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

I ate here for breakfast with my cousin who was getting married that evening, and I was the matron of honor. We chose to sit outside to just have a quiet morning before a full day of activity, and to enjoy the spectacular views. Our waiter was kind enough to turn on the heater since it was a relatively cool morning, and that made it perfect. Since we didn't want anything heavy in our stomachs, we chose what we thought would be smaller meals, though I would have loved to have tried some of the other offerings (I'm a sucker for crepes). I ordered the lemon beignets and my cousin ordered the wild berries & vanilla yogurt with granola. We both definitely got a lot and we could not finish our food. And both meals were absolutely delicious. The orange mascarpone cheese and strawberry glaze were perfect complements for the beignets. I tried some of the yogurt and all the flavors blended together so well. We both also ordered watermelon juice, and that was probably the only let down, but only because it was served room temperature, and it would have been much better if served chilled. The waiter also kindly prepared a presweetened latte to go for me. Food was delicious, service was wonderful...my only disappointment is that I live in another state and won't be able to return any time soon.
