Pinnacle Restaurant - Falkner Winery
great food and spectacular serviceOur food was fresh and delicious...our server Chante was a delight and helped us make our afternoon plans for visiting the local wineries including Faulkner where this restaurant is located. The Amante from Faulkner was recommended and was a delicious red wine to accompany our lunch. I would highly recommend this restaurant for lunch when in Temecula's wine district...our only regret was it was not open for dinner.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA very nice dining experienceA very nice dining experience with attentive service. Definitely a repeat for the future.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Food and wineWe had a wonderful lunch - food was extremely tasty, service was excellent, wine was delicious, view was outstanding.

My salad was delicious with a lavender vinaigrette.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNice lunch experienceGood food, great service, nice ambiance, gorgeous view. Their bread is delicious and all our dishes were very good. A bit cheap on the mussels for the appetizer, but they were very good. Would eat there again.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWine Club PerksAs a Falkner Wine Club member, I look forward to the time I spend at the Pinnacle Restaurant with friends. I like that the wine is half priced and served in a glass that designates me as a "wine club member". I enjoy the special appetizer that the chef creates and look forward to hearing about the everchanging specials. The wait staff has always been knowledgable and attentive. My only complaint would be that it can be noisy when there are multiple large group parties celebrating their special occasions.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday lunchI celebrated my birthday here with 5 others.
The food was very good, a bit pricy. The service was very good as well.
We just needed to keep asking for bread because it was only enough for one
slice each with a party of 6.
The scenery was very nice especially since we had a table near the window.

The special fish (swordfish) was very fresh and side items were good. The pasta with smoked chicken was quite good. However, the Angus burger was just so-so...
Pinnacle features many menu items that fit into a Mediterranean diet, which is nice. There is also a gluten-free menu.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Amazing Restaurant - Great ViewI visited the Pinnacle Restaurant with my wife as part of her birthday weekend in the Temecula wine country. The culmination of which was this fabulous restaurant which overlooks the entire wine country and numerous other local wineries. The food (which has just undergone a transformation only a couple days earlier, which added new food options) was to die for. We started with the Mussels in a garlic broth which was excellent. I then had the baked lobster and shrimp with spinach and artichoke hearts, whereas my wife had the diver scallops. Both dishes were absolutely amazing, completely fresh ingredients and awesome flavor. We then finished our meal by splitting the lemon and strawberry creme brulee, which was out of this world.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Lunch StopSeven of us were out wine tasting and stopped here for lunch because the reviews on line were so good. THEY WERE RIGHT! We all had something different and everything was delicious. Ladies it is a good idea to split the sandwiches if your not really that hungry. They were beautiful and tasted great along with the salmon dish, soup, and someone had a salad. Next time we will come for dinner.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed ourselvesThey have a specialty menu selection each month where the same food is prepared a different way each week, interesting indeed. lamb was this months selection and it was delicious. The service is knowledgeable and very friendly. The wines at Falkner arnt bad at all [I liked the Amante] As with most wineries in the Temecula Valley they are trying their best to please but one cannot expect those elite wines in the $150.00 per bottle class and thats a good thing for my wallet. I have tried a number of resterants along Rancho Ca. Rd. and i put Falkner on top of my list.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe attended the Easter BrunchWe attended the Easter Brunch and had a wonderful time. The food was delicious, the view was amazing and the staff were attentive.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentThe waitress was exceptionally good. I wish I remember her name.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMYou must try itWe have been to Faulkner for both Mother's Day Brunch and Easter brunch and were very happy both times. The food is excellent and the service was great! The buffet is one of the best and we love the crab claws, shrimp, and oysters! The live music is lovely and the view is spectacular!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster Brunch at the PinnacleFloor to ceiling glass wall provides a spectacular view of vineyards and mountains. The feeling was relaxed with live jazz guitar playing in the background. Nice backdrop to spend a romantic afternoon. My wife and I were not rushed and spent a couple of hours in great conversation over a wonderful meal. We plan to return for brunch or dinner soon.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is especially wellThe food is especially well prepared in the California fresh style. However, the restaurant is only open for lunch with evenings used for special events because of the wonderful view.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI was there celebrating myI was there celebrating my friends 45th birthday and our waitress Shontae was wonderful!

All our requests were fulfilled. Very noisy inside the restaurant.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA nice find for a quiet mealVisited on a rainy day and the view was still spectacular. Food was very good - cheese plate was a bit sparing on the cheese (3 slices and a small wedge of brie), mushroom soup was a great success. Our waitress, Tina was the best! She was on the spot with service and friendly attention. I will be back again.12/13/2012 12:00:00 AM
