                                Love Shadowbrook! Service was a little slow but we didn’t mind. The tastings were delicious and the food was good. It’s so nice to have winery in Walnut Creek

                                Shadowbrook is simply spectacular. It's incredible to have a winery of this quality right by Mt Diablo. The setting is beautiful, everyone is friendly, and the food is great with the wine. Highly recommended

                                Lovely spot, nice to have food while you sip. Service wasn’t great but she was probably really busy. They close so early but I think that’s due to city regulations maybe!? It’s so gorgeous and close.

                                They were out of our first choice food item and the cheese plate had very little cheese. However, we loved the ambiance, vineyard view, wine quality and wonderful service (thank you to our server, John!) and will definitely return

                                Beautiful views and location in Walnut Creek (the foothills of Mt Diablo). Great food and service, fun to see the vineyard the grapes in your bottle came from. Thought the tasting fees were comparatively steep ($45-$60 for 5 tastes). Would definitely return again and just order wines by the glass for the ones we now know we like.

                                Our 4th time visiting and another fantastic experience. The wine is excellent, the food very good and our server Kevin amazing. Brought two friends whom had never been here, and it was so much fun to see their jaws drop as they looked around and kept saying “ who knew that a winery this good was in our backyard!” The big extra bonus…. we were back in our home in 15 minutes! No grueling Napa traffic!

                                Beautiful grounds, excellent food. Wines taste good, some reds were a little pricey. There was a very loud group behind us but maybe it's usually a little quieter.

                                We had such terrible service at Shadowbrook that I will not return unless I am with a member. The server brought the wrong wine (twice) and then brought the wrong food - I figured she was just having a bad day - but then she was rude - missing a pour in our tasting - and aggressively insisting she did not, arguing with my 87 year old mother, not telling us anything about the wine when we asked : only "petite means small" about the petite sirah (OK, thanks), dumping the dregs into my tasting glass (my wine was decidedly chunky), giving hideously small and pours, and being inexcusably inattentive. We left without buying any wine (why would we - we didn't even know what what we were drinking). We had a lousy time, and will not risk returning.

                                Disappointed with the table options on a rainy day. Would have been much better experience if weather nice.

                                It’s always a lovely afternoon sipping wine and being with friends. I love that it is so close and yet feels so far away!

                                We had such a great time at Shadowbrook!! Highly recommended. Our server was Kevin and he was awesome, knowledgeable about the history of the place, the menu and very pleasant. Wine was great, we have different taste so we ordered Pettit Shira and Chardonnay, both great. The food was unbelievably good. Even though the food is appetizers style, it is tasty, fresh, good portions, excellent!! The ambience outside makes it a very enjoyable evening. You have the look of the vineyards, sunset, no need to go to Napa. We had a reservation at 5:30pm on Friday, which it was a bit too early for us but was the latest available. We learned that 5:30 is the latest they have all year because the neighbors will complain if they go after 7 pm. Wine and food orders stop at 6:30pm.
