About The Winery Restaurant
The Winery Restaurant has been an icon among western Colorado restaurants for over 35 years. The restaurant makes its home in a 95 year old building that used to house a horse drawn fire station. A gas lamp lit, grapevine canopied alley frames this romantic location perfectly. The beautifully remodeled building contains flowered stain glass windows, barn wood and bricks.
Steve Thoms acquired the restaurant in late June of 2004 after taking a couple of years off from his previous restaurant. His mission at he Winery is simple: Show the restaurant and its patrons the attention that they deserve. Use only top quality ingredients, and establish The Winery as the premiere restaurant in the Grand Junction area.
The Winery provides a variety of steaks, chicken, pork and fresh seafood specials nightly in an atmosphere that can not be rivaled anywhere!

The Winery Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We celebrated my wife's birthday there. The restaurant has nice ambiance - exactly what you expect for a restaurant called "the Winery". The food and wine list, as well as the cocktails were made with local ingredients. The have a patio for those who wish to dine outside. We chose inside due to the temperatures that day. Inside we sat in a very quiet area where we could enjoy the meal, and converse without being interrupted. Our server was very good, and knowledgeable.
We will come back the next time we are in the area.
It's simple. The winery is consistently excellent. My first dinner there was 16 years ago, it was outstanding. Have gone many times since and it is outstanding every single time. When I want a nice night out at an upscale restaurant, with excellent food and amazing food, The Winery is always at the top of the list.
Went to this restaurant while visiting family in the area. I live in a city known for great restaurants, and was pleasantly surprised at the variety on the menu, the quality of the food, and the extensive wine list. Our food was cooked perfectly, and portions were generous.
The food was excellent as usual. I must say I was dissapointed that salads no longer served with meals but must be ordered extra. Also they used to serve incredible brad and we were not served any bread with our meal. For the increase in prices salad and bread should come with the meal
First meal at The Winery in many years. I was thrilled to see the restaurant has maintained fine quality dining while also providing some updated cuisine. The staff was superb in caring for us. We will return and recommend to friends.
I took my wife for our 15th anniversary, we had been here when we first got together and hadn't been back since. The food was great, the cocktails were very good, and the waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and drinks. The noise level was very low and we were able to have a nice conversation. I hope to have a date night here again soon.
Our meal was an extremely enjoyable experience. The menu and nightly specials were all tempting. My husband had a filet and I order scallops from the appetizer menu plus added veggies. Both were outstanding. The wine list was varied and affordable. Our waitress was knowledgable and attentive. Just before dessert a party of 14 was seated in her section. The manager came over to introduce himself and tell us not to be concerned about the large party. He would personally be sure we had the attention we deserved. Now that is something we have never experienced and truly appreciated. We will be back!
As usual, our visit to The Winery was stellar! It is our favorite restaurant ANYWHERE, & we applaud Steve Thoms on leading/training his wait staff beautifully. He even serves his patrons sometimes, & ALWAYS comes to each table at least once to welcome his guests, making us all feel very special. We don't live in Grand Junction, but whenever we are there shopping or attending a movie, we plan to have dinner there, & have NEVER been disappointed! Obviously, we highly recommend this fine restaurant to everyone. We were there celebrating our anniversary, but we don't need a special occasion at all! As to "Molecular Gastronomy", I have no idea how much scientific research Steve & his staff are conducting along these lines, so you'll have to ask them! :)
Wonderful evening. Visited based on hotel staff recommendation.
The entire Winery team was awesome from hostess to our wait person, Brooke. Especially enjoyed the visit from the manager, who my Manhattan, which was excellent. The warm spinach salad was excellent as we're our filet and rib eye. The cheesecake was a great finish. We will return!
Service was great, food was good and cooked to order. Large portions it would be good to split. I really liked the flavor of the potatoes and how they cook crispy bacon around my salmon dish was quite special. I wish they had seated us away from a view of the bathrooms since we were on of the first tables seated on an off night. But other than that last item the experience was very nice.
Good wine selection too
I have had many delicious meals at the winery over the years and this one was no exception. However, coming from the San Francisco Bay area, I continue to be surprised at how expensive it is there, considering it is in Grand Junction! I am also surprised that after several decades, there have been few upgrades in the interior which is rather dark inside. However, if you want good food in Grand Junction and can afford their prices, this is the place to go.
My daughter graduated from college and we went there to celebrate. It was a very nice time and we loved the food, the drinks, the waiter, and the whole atmosphere. It is definitely worth a trip there and the $. Thanks for helping us celebrate this milestone in style. P.S. The chocolate mousse dessert shared by all four of us was the best we have ever tasted.
My wife and I were there for our anniversary. We both got the filet, and were not dissapointed. So tender and flavor to die for! The sides and salads were excellent as well. Great service too. Wil, our server, was awesome! For that special occasion, The Winery is THE place!
I took my wife there for our 22nd anniversary. What great service and food.! The owner actually let my wife wait in the back while i went to get the car because it was raining. I would highly recommend the Winery for any occasion.
We love the Winery for Special Occasions. You can dress up or go casual it's just that kind of place. We have been a number of times and have never been disappointed. Great food and the service is excellent. All the staff are friendly and I just can't say enough good things about this place. We love the atmosphere which is a big plus for us when dining out. I highly recommend that you go if you've never been.
We enjoyed dinner at The Winery Restaurant as we celebrated our wedding anniversary. We have been there before, and it was once again a delightful experience. The food was excellent, the service friendly and professional, and we appreciated the personal attention of the owner. All around, a wonderful dining experience. We wil certainly return!
The service, food, atmosphere was outstanding -the best of everything!
Loved that it's a quieter place and that you can have a conversation - our meal was wonderful and we had a very attentive server, and the manager welcomed us - it was a very enjoyable evening. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
I wanted this place to be good, and it was decent, but my experience wasn't stellar.
The food was cooked pretty well but the steak was very underseasoned.
The server, while trying his best, just couldn't get it together.
There are other spots in Junction I would choose over this.
Enjoyed another meal at The Winery. The Italian margarita is really good. The menu is varied with good choices and tempting appetizers and salads. Our table was private and quiet enough to enjoy our conversation. This restaurant is one of the best on the Western Slope.
