The Restaurant at Ponte Ratings and Reviews
Great food. Service was slow but we were notified of that when we sat down that the kitchen was behind. Setting expectations makes a big difference. Our server was great and really helped us with choosing a wine that met our interests.
The food was very good and the live classical guitar added to the atmosphere as did the lovely grounds. My only regret was that I hadn't discovered this gem for dinner sooner.
The food was very good with good size servings. Service by Spencer was excellent. And we enjoyed the live music and delicious wine . Although it was a chilly evening, the heater kept us comfortable throughout the evening on the patio . If your preferred dining time doesn't appear on the Open Table app, I recommend calling the restaurant . They were very accomodating in changing the time we had booked.
We all had a wonderful experience at this restraint.
The service was great. The foods were great. The taste of course and the amount were just perfect.
Another thing I really liked about the meal was well thoughtful for having with alcohol. Didn't disturbed the taste of the wine at all.
We definitely want to come back here to see a beautiful scenery and having some wine again.
Thanks ponte!! We love you!!
I could have not been more pleased by my experience at The Restaurant at Ponte. The food was great. The service was wonderful. Loved the complimentary garlic bread! The ambiance with out door seating was superb. It's a great place to unwind, eat out for two or dine with friends. I can't wait to return.
The meals on the lunch menu were overpriced. The fish (Sand Dabs) and the fries were frozen then heated up I believe (Mushy as opposed to a firm texture). My brother and mother were happy with their meals. The environment was relaxing and friendly. The staff was cordial and helpful and we were able to be seated at our reservation time. The crowds are always heavy on the weekends when the weather is nice, so make reservations.
My husband and I are wine members from out of state. We met our California friends there for lunch before leaving the Temecula area. I love the restaurant because you dine outdoors. My husband and I had salads which were delicious and our friends had the Verde pizza which they liked. We had glasses of the Vermentino and Angry White wine to compliment the salads. I would recommend the restaurant. The staff are friendly and attentive.
My husband and I had a disappointing experience on March 21 when we went for lunch. We were expecting a restaurant that offered more finesse not pubfood. Some of our food was cold, the portions were far too large, and the waitress was slow to respond and inattentive. We would not recommend the restaurant.
We've been wine club members for over 10 years and have dined at Ponte dozens and dozens of times. Over the last year or so we have notice a decline in the food quality. After this last weekend having lunch there when we left my wife said "we need to find a new lunch place when we come down here". It sucks because we live the ambience there but not the food.
I love just about everything at Ponte, so I will give a five star review today, even though the vegetarian choice I made was not to my liking. The "stack" was flavorless, and although I often make vegetarian choices on a menu, this particular one was lackluster. I will continue to love the entire venue and the good service, just not this particular dish.
Put it on your list! The Restaurant at Ponte satisfies in a large way. From the captivating views to excellent dining entrées, this place gets it done. Travelled from the inland empire to this gem in Temecula on the Winery grounds. Arrived slightly late for my 1230pm reservation and was greatly surprised that there was no fuss and thankfully no waiting. My wife and I were immediately seated in the canopied patio section (which was much appreciated on the hot Saturday afternoon). Our waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly and didn't crowd us or intimate any pressure to order. We were meeting a business associate for a brief bite so we only ordered apps as we talked, however, everything was delicious. Definitely try the mussels and lobster stuffed mushrooms. Change your life type of eating for sure.
The restaurant was unusually quiet compared to our last visit. We were seated close to a heater so we were all comfortable even though the outdoor temp was only 58 degrees. Our server was friendly and attentive. Our food came quickly and everyone seemed pleased with their entree.
