Wow! Best, relaxing thanksgiving dinner I have had at a restaurant. Service and atmosphere were wonderful. We have gone to the wineries in the past but this was much better. We weren't rushed at all. Turkey, and primerib were perfectly cooked as well as hot. We will be back.

This is my favorite place to eat in Temecula. Always well staffed with efficient courteous people. The food is awesome and the prices are reasonable.

Had a late dinner at this fun restaurant last month. Parking was a little bit of a challenge, but the restaurant was great! It was close to Halloween, and the place was decorated really nicely.

Sister order end cut of Roasted Prime Rib - giant and gorgeous! My wife had Prime Chateau Sirloin with a side of Béarnaise sauce, she loved it. I had the Roasted Filet of Ribeye, it was... More

What a wonderful experience! Amazing Food! Don't forget the libations. This was a night that both my wife and I will remember fondly. If you can, get seated outside when the sun is setting. Oh, and you gotta try the desserts ... yes, that's plural ... as in, more than one!

Had dinner in the bar area this week with five others. I was pleased with the choices on the menu and had their bone-in filet (special) which was perfect. Our server was good and the environment was just what we needed. Quiet enough to have a conversation, but still active.

I eat here quite frequently, especially when visiting the Hotel Temecula which is right around the corner. Good bar and good food.
