Old world atmosphere in the west
Nice selection of menu items, the specials are worth paying attention to, service attentive but not pushy or rushed. Other than a very loud table of 4 the last time I was there, this is generally a restaurant where you can converse with those at your table easily.

The ambiance is great--fairly
The ambiance is great--fairly quiet, cute decor, very nicely decorated. I had the Shrimp Tempura--wonderful!! My husband had the prime rib special, but was disappointed in the meat which was tough. This is the 2nd time he had prime rib there and it was not tender. Otherwise, a great evening and a real treat.

Flavorful food, stuffy waiter
Our party of 6 enjoyed every mouthful of our perfectly seasoned food. The macadamia nut crusted salmon was quite an experience and my vegetarian choice of marinated portable mushrooms on pasta was delicious. The stuffy, odd waiter wasn't needed and was quite out of place in this old Grand Junction classic. When my 19 year old son (whose birthday we were celebrating ) asked if he was restricted to a salad with his steak, the waiter replied, "That's what the menu says" with quite an attitude. He was neither jovial,welcoming or even pleasant to spend an evening with. If we come back we will most definitely request someone with a little personality and kind presence. Please advise him to lighten up a little!

My wife and I were celebrating our 56th anniversary. We were meet at the table by the owner and the waiter who explained that our dinner would be paid for by our children. Our son lives in Illinois and daughter lives in Delaware who had called ahead to surprise us by paying for the meal. We were also present with a card signed by the owner and all the employees. The card also included a special gift for us. We had a wonderful meal and a great atmosphere for our anniversary.

My husband and I were in Grand Junction on a business trip during the week of our wedding anniversary and we wanted to eat at a nice restaurant......not your average steakhouse food chain! I googled area restaurants and found The Winery in downtown Grand Junction. I checked out the menu on their website. I must say that this place was Superb! The food was very tasty, the waiter was excellent and we loved the ambience. A great place to celebrate our anniversary. We will definitely eat at The Winery the next time we are in Grand Junction!

My wife & I returned to The Winery after quite some thanks to an Open Table birthday gift from my sister. We had not patronized under the assumption that the quality just didn't justify the fare based on our past experience. Much to our delight, the food and drink was outstanding with the service to match. While still a little on the high $$$$ side for Grand Junction, we will definitely return. The stuffed portabella's were divine!

Jacob, our waiter, was fantastic. Food was outstanding. Definitely a great place!

Our waiter Jacob was appropriately attentive and allowed us to enjoy our time together and catch up on news. We never felt rushed or that we were neglected. We chose to dine on the outdoor patio to enjoy the live entertainment despite the unusual humidity for Grand Junction. Summer cocktail specials were refreshing, appetizers were delicious and meals were enjoyed by all at the table.

We celebrated our 45th anniversary at The Winery. It was an outstanding experience! Our son lives in Clifton and he recommended this restaurant having dined here previously. It was everything he told us and more. The ambiance is warm and inviting, our service was fantastic and the wine list and menu notable. My husband and I both had the mixed grill consisting of beef medallions with a great sauce and seared scallops with an amazing pesto sauce. Both were delicious. We were also very pleased with our salads and sides. We opted for an incredible dessert to top off our celebration. We highly recommend this wonderful restaurant.

The restaurant had a wonderful atmosphere and the food was superb with generous portions! It was our wedding anniversary and we requested a quiet table. They seated us in a quiet corner that was perfect. Julie and Nick (our servers) were very attentive to our needs and took good care of us. We both had the sirloin steak - which was wonderful. We were treated to a free dessert because of our anniversary and we chose the Palisade Special - a delectable layered chocolate dessert. Although the prices are a bit steep for us, we would definitely recommend this restaurant.

been returning to the winery for special occasions since its opening in the 70's its a classic

Food is always wonderful and service is the best you can find in GJ. We always eat early to ensure a quiet experience. Two of us had steaks, and they were cooked to perfection. The peach martini was wonderful! We be sure to go a few times every year.

LOVE the winery!
My husband and I love The Winery. Outstanding food! As well as excellent staff, they are all so personable, and curtious. A very nice resturaunt for a romantic, and enjoyable evening.

the food was excellent as always have never had a bad meal here. service could have been better. the waiter was slow on basic service. the busy boy was very good. the waiter needed several reminders to bring bread, no offer for after dinner drinks instead of dessert. Other waiters in the restaurant seemed to be much more attentive to their customers.

Nice complement to CO MTN WINEFEST
We selected this restaurant since we were in town for the Colorado Mountain Winefest. The chef had prepared a selection with a wine pairing to offer customers as well as their usual menu items. The food, wine selection and service was excellent. I would definitely recommend this restaurant especially for their wine selection. The atmosphere is very pleasing inside as well as outside.

Lovely spot for outdoor dining
Enjoyed the patio tucked between buildings preventing any wind from disturbing the experience. The duo on the keyboard and guitar were just right to set the ambiance

The Winery Restaurant
My wife and I had a superb dinner at the winery. The beef tenderloin was tender, flavorful and cooked to perfection. Our server suggested an excellent bottle of wine to accompany the meal. I will definitely return on any future trips to Grand Junction.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We sat on the outdoor patio and enjoyed every second of it. The service was top notch, and our waiter was wonderful. He had a great personality, and was very attentive without being overpowering.
The wine selection was great, especially considering our group being really into wine in general.
The food was prepared with great care, everything was very fresh (from apps through dinner).
I wouldn't hesitate to go back or to recommend the restaurant to anyone looking for a great dining experience in Grand Junction.

Definitely one of the best restaurants in the country! Both my husband and I strongly recommend The Winery.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my third time to the restaurant. It was spectacular--from the bar tender to the wait staff, every element of the experience was great. We even got to sample Rocky Mountain oysters! In how many restaurants can you have that experience? The bar is relatively small and quaint--perfect for a pre-meal drink. I don't really have a complaint.
