A great staff that works very well together. From the maitre d' on down, the staff was more like a seamless team. Very attentive, yet not intrusive. The wine captain was extremely helpful and knowledgable. The food was excellent and the presentation wonderful. The location in 'The District' shopping area has some minor parking challenges, but The Winery has a valet up front, so do not waste your time looking for a spot to park. The interior is warm and inviting with dark woods and low lights. Very good for couples or business meals.

Had dinner there for the first time last week with co-workers and it was incredible. Tried the flat steak and it was extremely tender and very flavorful. The best service I've ever had and an incredible meal. I would be comfortable bringing customers, friends and family to The Winery for a meal anytime.

Had a set menu dinner hear for a business function, and was very impressed with the quality of the cooking. All the entrees looked excellent, and the one that I ordered, slow-braised angus short ribs, was just right, with tender, moist meat falling off the bones (actually, it had already fallen off the bones, since it was served boneless). Came with a nice zinfandel sauce and couscous with asparagus. Nice dessert with fresh berries. The pre-selected wines were also very nice, though it was a shame not to be able to order at will from their very extensive and reasonably priced wine list.
Next time in Irvine, I'll be sure to make this a required stop.

Met friends at The Winery for lunch. Very attentive service starting right as we entered. All four entrees were excellent (burger, sea bass, ahi tuna salad, and "Vegetable Tower"). Bottle of wine was probably $5 or $7 more than it should have been @$32, as has been commented in earlier reviews. During the meal, I began to think the service was slow, but then I realized that our server was not delivering our entrees because one person in our group was so busy talking that he wasn't finishing his soup! Once she checked with us and verified that we were "ready", the entrees appeared instantly. What I thought was slow service was actually service that was closely timed to our table's pace! Certainly not an inexpensive place, but we sure enjoyed our meal, and I certainly would return in the future.

The Winery is unmatched because of the atmosphere delivered by the team of partners. The food, serviced and atmosphere are unmatched anywhere that I have been.
