    I booked this special occassion for our 10 year wedding anniversary since I wanted to try something new. We were lucky enough to have been waited on by Madison and all of her recommendations were just fantastic. She recommended We started with the calamari which was a delight. It wasn't greasy or rubbery at all. My wife chose the "hot pot" and I chose the Maine scallops. Both were tasty and the presentation was on point. Oh the desserts!!! Oh the desserts!! We tried the creme brulee and the pumpkin cheesecake. Oh the desserts!Throughout the night, the staff was friendly and Spike (Manager) stopped by to check up on us. Overall it was a great experience and thanks for sharing in our anniversary experience.

    We took our family to celebrate our twin grandchildren's 16th Birthday. We had four teenagers total and 3 adults. The wait staff was excellent - especially our waiter,David, and the wine stewart. They paid special attention to to twins and made us all feel very special. The food was delicious - our grandchildren are foodies!!!! Although pork belly appetizer was not on our dinner menu, David ordered it from the bar for us. Yes, it was a lovely evening!!!! Arthur Leupold

    I gave this an Overall dining experience 3 STARS because i felt like the food should have been better. I ordered the Duck and was expecting excellence. I have had much better. My girlfriend ordered Surf and Turf which was not on the menu which came out to $85 for an 8oz fillet and lobster tail. Way too expensive in my mind. In addition, the lobster was over cooked. The service was fantastic. Our server Robert was friendly, knowledgable, and offered great suggestions. It was a good experience but i don't know if i will be going back.

    It's feels like going home when we dine at The Winery, from the hostess to the server and everyone in between, we are greeted with smiles and the restaurant has a welcoming feel. Even better is the Chef's nightly delectable delicious creations, I'm never disappointed. Heirloom tomatoes, Lobster Tail over risotto with bacon wrapped asparagus - YUM!!! Enjoy this consistently great dining experience.

    Hands down the best experience ever. 5 years ago I met the person who now is my wife here on a blind date. 5 years later I book reservations on our 5 year anniversary. Nothing like I remeber it but then again I didn't pay attention all that much. This time around we sat inside and from the moment we sat down we were treated like royalty. This place is what I would consider upscale. I had the duck and it was my first time having duck & OMG it was incredible! My wife had the Lobster with Rosotto, just amazing. But the true treat was our waiter Miggy. Hands down the BEST! Recommended our wines and desert and even went out of he's way to give us a tour of the resturant. Next time we go back, & yes we will, I'm requesting him!

    Waiters description of all dishes was second to none! Resaturant manager was truly visible through the evening checking to be sure all was good. Went over and above the call of duty when he brought a special dessert to the table after a guest of ours mentioned it was not on the menu (in jest). Made our night! Great guy!

    Was here with group of 8 to celebrate birthday. Music was so loud, we couldn't have a conversation. The light was so dim, we couldn't read the menu. After 2 hours of arrival, we finally got our food, and it tasted good. It took forever before the waiter took our order. We had looked forward to hanging out with friends but due to noise level, conversations were challenging. Everyone in group agreed to not return to this place.

    The service was superb. Everyone was friendly, courteous, right there when needed but not disruptive to our dining experience. The Ahi starter plate was the best that we have had. The Chilean Sea Bass was excellent and the wine was perfect. A great dinning experience which we will repeat again soon.

    Attentive and friendly service. Food was generally ok however one of the oysters we ordered was dangerously off, steaks got mixed up and went to the wrong table spots and a side order was missed off the order completely. This is not a cheap place so you don't expect these kind of mistakes. I may try one more time but there are a lot of good alternatives in this price segment.

    Great business lunches, two within 30 days. Round tables are excellent for conversing. Both were with five individuals and provided the perfect atmosphere for first-time introductions and to discuss the matters at hand. Lunch menu is eclectic with something for everyone. Soups are incredible. Service from Hostess to Server to Assistants was great, Manager stopped by both times. First class all the way without being stuffy.

    It was our anniversary and we had not been to The Winery in a few years - what were we waiting for? Everything was terrific. The service was great. Andrew our server was attentive and very knowledgeable. Great personality - the manager checked on us - the entire staff looked happy and moved at an urgent pace. The food - everything was great! The oysters - some of the best I've ever had. Lobster tail delicious! Chilean Sea Bass outstanding. Dessert - yum! The wine perfect. I highly recommend The Winery - I won't wait so long to go back!

    Been wanting to try The Winery for a really long time. Celebrated my husbands birthday (date night). Gorgeous decor in restaurant, our server and those who were helping were very attentive, food was to die for--everything was seasoned perfectly--just tasty! We love food and from the presentation to every last bite was awesome. I had seabass--my husband had elk--never tasted elk like that--cant describe it-but just fabulous! Had some appetizers, martinis and a bottle of wine--can't wait to go back.

    The food and service was great. This is the second time however that you didn't have us checked in and open table said we didn't honor our reservation which was incorrect. I noticed the girl at the front desk was a little pre-occupied and she was a little impatient when we asked her if everyone in our party had arrived. She acted like we were bothering her. This was unusual because everyone else was so nice and always is when we are there.

We had the scallops and shrimp over a creamy jasmine rice with saffron and prosciutto. We had the half bottle of the Sonoma Cutrer 2012 Russian River Ranches Chardonay which was a very nice pairing. A special birthday dessert was presented to us. They made the dinner a wonderful and memorable event!

    The staff at The Winery treated us like we were their VIP guests for the evening, with a manager coming to introduce himself to us and chatting with us for a little while. Upon learning we were there for our 15th anniversary, they brought out champagne to help us celebrate while we nibbled at our cheeseboard with charcuterie. They continued with excellent service throughout the night, even creating an off-menu plate for me when I couldn't decide between the scallops and fillet. The risotto was divine, as was the cheesecake. My fillet and scallops were made to perfection, and my husband's lamb was so tender I almost cried. We sipped and dined unhurriedly, talking quietly, listening to the jazzy-acoustic live music, enjoying our occasion.

    For some unexplained reason, I choose this restaurant to celebrate my 25th wedding anniversary at The Winery after never dining here before. It was definitively a wise, or incredibly lucky, choice because I couldn't have asked for a better dining experience. Absolute perfection from the valet attendant, hostess, busboy, waitress, sommelier and the manager. Food, drink, service and atmosphere excellent. Do not hesitate to come her for any occasion, especially special events. Thank you one and all at The Winery in Tustin for making my anniversary a fantastic evening. We'll be back soon.

    Ambiance is amazing and elegant, yet it lacks in many other areas. To being never offered a basket of bread like all other tables around us were enjoying. Caesar Salad was tasteless as there was barely any dressing. My mother and husband had the scallops and shrimp with risotto, scallops were mushy, not cooked and shrimp was rubbery.. overcooked. Waitstaff was informed and one of the meals was removed from bill. ( both meals were the same but they only took off one of them) I had the Rib-eye with bone in ordered it medium rare it was cooked perfectly inside however the outside was chard/burnt. nothing like eating a bite of a $49 steak and having a mouthful of burnt charcoal not pleasing or appetizing. Felt forgotten by staff. It was sad.
