Wonderful food, and the chef altered our cheese to fit our taste! Lovely, quiet setting with beautiful gardens and friendly staff.

My wife and I took our daughter and her fiancée to the wine country for a celebratory weekend. The stop at Lynmar started our winery tour. And what a start! The weather happened to be perfect. We were poured a glass of chardonnay as we arrived, and we wandered the beautiful views of rolling vineyards. Once we were seated in the patio, the waiter attended gracefully, describing the wines and food as they arrived.

The service was unpretentious and portions fed us well without slowing us down for the rest of out day. We will be back!

Loved the tour through the garden before finding the same fruits and herbs we saw on trees in our meal.

Both my husband and I loved our wine pairing lunch, had great service. They took into account my dietary needs and the view and outer deck was so beautiful! Quiet and lovely. We took away some wine!

The gardens at Lynmar are gorgeous! We went in early September and everything was in peak bloom. They serve the fruits and vegetables from their garden for the picnic lunch. The 'picnic' lunch was very, very good and the service was excellent. The only reason I didn't give it a five star is because they were really skimpy on their pours. We had to keep asking for our glasses to be filled. When I was there before the gave generous pours of their CH and Pinot. It is a refreshing change from having to order off a menu and it is blessedly quiet!

The wine food pairing at Lynmar is a lovely experience. The wine is rich in flavors, the food is delicious and can't get any more local than picking the ingredients from the vegetables growing right there where you are sitting. Beautiful setting and view. A relaxing, wonderful experience is not to be missed.

Could not have enjoyed our experience more. The Lynmar Estates gardens are spectacular. We enjoyed a warm welcome from the friendly staff and a delicious lunch paired with great wines. Will definitely return and recommend this beautiful place to wine country visitors.

We had been advised by friends to try Lynmar, and their Friday afternoon picnic seemed a perfect opportunity the day before 4th of July. Our waiter, Charlie made our lunch absolutely delightful...great personality and just the right amount of attention without being overbearing. If you are put off by the price when you look at the menu - popcorn, sandwich and cookies - you will be completely surprised. The food is exceptional and the wine was free-flowing. The sandwich might have been the best we've ever had and every vegetable and fruit served was fresh from the garden.

Lynmar Estate Winery's gourmet picnic lunch wine pairing was a great find. The food, most of which was grown on the grounds, was delicious. The chef did an outstanding job of combining unique flavors. The wine pairing really complimented the food. The gardens around the winery are incredible and the views of the rolling vineyard surrounding the winery are beautiful. I would highly recommend this winery to friends. The lunch/wine tasting was a little pricey, $55, however it was worth it.

We stopped by to eat lunch and taste some wines on our way to San Francisco. It did not disappoint. Very good food and a comfortable atmosphere. Not pretentious at all. It was a great find! The wine was amazing. Purchased a few bottles and debated joining their wine club. Definitely worth the trip!

We were welcomed for lunch with a glass of wine and an invitation to stroll the beautiful gardens. We were treated to a truly beautiful lunch with amazing views, friendly service and wonderful food and wine.
The menu is simple but each and every ingredient is fresh, local and delicious. Looking forward to coming back again next time.

This amazing spot is perfect to relax & enjoy some of the valleys finest wines while enjoying lunch or a small cheese selection. When the weather is nice they have an outdoor area overlooking a bit of the valley, vineyards, and their enormously well attended to garden. An absolute "do not miss" you would do well to make reservations and have the attention of one of the staff (sometimes they are great and others maybe not as great; they could do with just a bit of enthusiasm, but in general they are good). The interior is creative, minimal, yet relaxing. All the wines are great!
