“Excellent food and service, but atmosphere / views are lacking”

Meritage Restaurant
Ranked #58 of 430 Restaurants in Temecula
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Compared with some of the other winery restaurants in the area, this one is lacking in views and restaurant atmosphere. There is a lot of cement, the tables are close to one another, and there is nothing warm or cozy or even nice about it.

What the restaurant lacks in character and views it makes up for in service. Our server was outstanding and the food was certainly better than average.

I prefer the small personal service wineries myself. If you like the big flashy overly crowded hip places, Then this is the place for you. This is definitely a mass production winery. It was very difficult to get a place at the bar to even begin the tasting. I like sweet wines so we ended up taking home a bottle of the Muscat Canelli. The grounds are beautifully kept with great views and very clean. They had what looked like a nice restaurant, but around the restaurant area there was a terrible smell. We were thinking about having lunch outside on the patio there, but the smell deterred us.

WE are wine club members and enjoy having wine on the balcony of the winery. There are great views of the vineyards and it is relaxing.

Good food, great setting. Feels like you are eating in an old green house. Great for late afternoon as the sun is going down. We have eaten there 3 times.
