So excited to take two friends that had never been to a Benihana. They totally enjoyed the chef show as well as food. I knew there was a lot of food served so the three of us shared a trio meal. The chicken, shrimp and steak cooked perfectly enjoyed the chicken fried rice. Drinks were refilled in a timely manner. Then to finish a delicious meal we finished with green tea ice cream. Enjoyed by us all.

Small Barn is an exciting addition to the Temecula restaurant landscape offering a casual but elevated dining experience in the form of a modern bistro. The menu is inspired by classic preparations found on bistro menus around the globe while showcasing the bounty of ingredients produced in the region.

Amazing dinner, one of our favorite places to dine at. The food is delicious, the service is outstanding. We had bruschetta to start, the the salad with the goat cheese(forgot the name) I had the Chicken Marsala and my husband had the filet in a red wine reduction. Oh the barrel cab was off the hook. Part of the restaurant’s own wine company. Tartufo for dessert, creamy and delicious . Not too sweet at all. If you’re ever in Temecula definitely make time for Gourmet Italia.

Had a wonderful time! I tried the soup du jour which was a corn soup. It was delicious! Our server Mike was very attentive and the attention we received throughout our day was exceptional. I appreciated the learning we experienced during the wine tasting as our sommelier's knowledge improved the experience overall.
