    If you visit it during the week it’s a perfect place for a date, with delicious drinks and food. And during the weekend it is perfect for spending time with friends.

    The restaurant reported us to Open Table as a no-show despite that we were actually at the restaurant. The gratuity of what we were charged is more that the 18% as stated on their website for a party of 6. Both our foods and drinks took a very long time. It was not a busy time when we booked our reservation. Our food took more than an hour to arrive and it was cold. I had the vegetable bolognese and it was very hard and salty. My friend asked for a well-done burger and it was medium. The rest of the food were fine. I also order the burrata for appetizer, I was charged $24 when it was supposed to be $19. Overall experience is not good.

    The food was outstanding. We ordered the grilled octopus and soba noodle salad. The octopus was tender & loved the sauce/potatoes that were served with it. The ahi was seared perfectly on the soba noodle salad and the fresh mix of veggies in it were a nice balance

    The vibe of this winery is amazing! There was a live band which made the night exciting, yet difficult to have conversation if that's what you're looking for. The waiter was kind and the hostess was very accommodating when we needed to move our reservation due to traffic. The only issues I had were that when we ordered a bottle of wine it was delivered uncorked and he didn't pour or let us try first (I know...first world issues), and we weren't informed they were closing soon so we had to rush to finish the bottle. Also, they were out of a lot of wines and the shrimp scampi was a little bland, good truffle fries though.

    The staff was amazing! I had a party of 8 which ended up changing to 13 and they were so gracious and patient with accommodating us. It’s a beautiful spot and it doesn’t get too crazy busy with people. They make sure to ask if you are celebrating a special occasion to make you feel special with a complimentary tiramisu cake 😋.

    I chose The Restaurant at Mount Palomar due to the numerous reviews stating they served the best food of all the wineries. Now that I've experienced it firsthand, I do believe it is true!! There were 5 of us and we ordered the octopus, shrimp pasta, mussels, charcuterie board, chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries, green salad with salmon and we ended our meal with the tiramisu. Everything was delicious!! There was a wonderful sax player that played not only jazz, but R&B, soul, yacht rock, etc. He totally elevated the already fun and energetic ambiance! We even danced! We had the BEST time and can't wait to return! Highly recommend!

    We had an event at the winery and thought it would be great to eat there prior. We made reservations for 3:45 three weeks in advance. The day before the reservation, they called to say last seating is at 3:30. I said we will get there as soon as we can but may be a few minutes late. We arrived at 3:37 and were told they couldn’t seat us. I calmly explained how I spoke to sometime the day before and said we will order as soon as we are seated. Bad planning and bad communication on their part. If they gave me more notice, I would have made reservations somewhere else where we were more welcomed.

    Our family of 4 adults had a great lunch on a Sunday that reached 95 degrees. We all shared the charcuterie--great-tasting selection, beautifully presented. The mussels, burger were outstanding. Service by Angie and team were gracious and knowledgable. We loved the rieslings and purchased a wine membership and got 10% off our meal!

    Food took over an hour and 15 to come out. Excuse was that it’s because they cook everything “fresh”. Not sure that explains the 45 minute delay on fruit bowls and a child’s grilled cheese. My issue was less the delay in service and more the attitude that that was “normal”. Just apologize and move on.

    The menu is limited, has a few nice appetizers and entrees but not too many choices. They only offer a few wines in the restaurant. I ended up going over to their tasting room to buy a bottle of something better. A little disappointing. The service was fine and the food we ordered was well prepared.
