    The food was excellent. The charcuterie board could have been better but the filet mignon and seafood pasta was very good. Cooked beautifully! I don't have great thoughts about the wine itself. The view is beautiful. The sun can get you we had to move a couple of times. I wish it was closer. But, I think the food makes it worth the drive. We were constantly battling flying insects. There was a man playing his media without ear phones.

    The wine is okay. The restaurant is half inside and half out. The food is expensive and not bad. $25 for a hamburger and fries. I had Chris as my waitress who is also serves wine and wine tasting. She was very nice and very accommodating. If you go to a show at one of the casinos in town this could be a good stop off for you. Just an alternative to a Casino type of environment. I am not familiar with Valley Center’s restaurants.

    Wine tasters holder Presentation was unique and beautifully arranged. I have told all my family that Hill Top Winery food is the best I have tasted, the salad was so fresh I could not recall when I ever had such a great salad. The chief did a great job with the hamburger as well, and next time when I am in the area, I will definitely return because of the ambiance, and especially, for the food.

    Overall great experience! Sunset tasting an awesome way to go. We live 45 minutes away and had a 5:45pm reservation, so if you have a little bit of a drive leave early enough to really enjoy the experience. Because the food service ends at 6:30pm. We loved it! PG & AG

    It is a really beautiful venue and the people that work there are friendly and helpful. We had lunch at the winery overlooking the hill top of growing vines. The lunch we had was fresh, light, healthy and a perfect accompaniment to the wine flight we tried. Oops, I bought eight bottles to go and joined the "Club."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Hill Top Ranch Winery! This is a gem in Valley Center, the tranquil view transports you to a place of relaxation. The food was outstanding and the wine flights (5 Whites, 5 Reds) were creatively presented and we enjoyed them so much we became wine club members on the spot. Service was attentive. We look forward to a return visit - and another beautiful sunset view!

    I have visited Hilltop multiple times. I absolutely love the ambiance and the view! The food is delicious, but quite costly. We had a mistake with our food order, but we ate it anyway since the kitchen was closing. It’s too bad they don’t stay open a little later since the sun wasn’t down yet. It’s a stunning outdoor experience.
