This is an upscale restaurant but with reasonable prices. The fresh made bread is a great start to excellent food. The three mushroom soup is creamy and never enough although the serving is generous indeed. The salads are fresh and the dressing not overbearing and comes on the side. The Catalan Spicy Shrimp were cooked to perfection and lived up... More

Wonderful lunch menu, great wine and beautiful view. Good selection of salads and sandwiches, even burgers and flatbread choices. If you like full bodied red wines, the amante is a great choice.

The view from Pinnacle is an added plus to the dining. We annoyed a wonderful lunch with excellent service on a visit to wine country in Temecula. It is a bit pricey for lunch, but well worth it, and one of the nicer winery restaurants open for lunch.

We loved it for lunch today. Excellent food, reasonably priced, and super service. The chocolate dessert was as great as the view!

Nice selection of food and wine. Stopped in for lunch after wine tasting at the Falkner Winery. Very upscale setting, which would be perfect for any special event.

This restaurant, at Faulkner Winery, is set on a 1,500-foot hilltop, and offers a panoramic view of the valley below. Equally stunning is their brunch menu especially if you are a sea food lover. Shrimp cocktail cooked to perfection, crab claws, smoked salmon, and tuna sushi are just some of the sea food dishes that were prepared. The more traditional... More

Food was good and service was excellent but we thought prices were high for lunch. Almost went for the $20 "restaurant week" special menu with optional dessert for $6 but decided on small plates plus dessert instead. When we were ready to order dessert, we were told the $6 dessert was only available with the special menu, so we had... More

As my friend and I were trying to find a place to have lunch after our weight watcher meetingwe were recommended to try The Pinnacle restaurant at Falkner Winery. The small plates on the menu were very delicious and a good serving for a small plate. Yay! Price was reasonable. I had the spicy shrimp served with grilled ciabatta toasts... More

We recently had a celebration for my mother's birthday at the Pinnacle. It was in fact a nice place for lunch. The food was by everyone's account very good. I had a steak salad which was excellent with a very tender cut of steak. Others had the seafood portifino, a mushroom pasta, and a salmon dish that my mom said... More
