Mostly hotel guests, so not as crowded as their other venue. Menu is limited but food is good. We eat here if the other outdoor restaurant is too busy.

We love Ponte Vineyards and dine in their restaurant every time we are in town. We decided to try Bouquet and are sorry we did.

The service was terrible. It took over thirty minutes to get water for the table. The server didn’t seem to care and was in no rush to extend service to us. We had to ask for Bread which also took way to long to be served. We ordered four entrees three of which were bland. Very disappointed and will not return.

They must have been very under staffed! We went in at 1:30pm and left canceling our order at 3:00 pm because we hadn’t received our food! The Restaurant at Ponte was better.

The service was VERY slow and the people at a table near us complained. The waitress charged us for a bottle of wine that we had purchased through our membership. Just not a good day at Pointe

Was seated in the back /not very picturesque spot. Service was VERY slow - took 30 mins for them to even get us a drink. 2 hours total for lunch so missed our next stop. Was always trying to track down our waiter. Unimpressed with the food - I had the turkey club and there was way too much/too thick bread for a 'triple decker' sandwich. Bread wasnt toasted. Turkey seemed like it was from a package. I wouldn't go back.

The absolute worst service I have ever experienced. From a 20+ minute wait for anyone to come to the hostess stand (with many in line in front of us going in search of someone to seat us) to over 25 minutes to get three simple drinks to another 45 minutes to get food. We then had to wait 20 minutes to get the check. All of this with only 3 tables in the restaurant at the time of our arrival.

Other tables arrived after us and several left due to bad service. Somehow our food and drinks were served far faster than any other table in the restaurant. Everyone around us was complaining of 45 minute wait for drinks and over an additional hour and 15 minutes for food.

The manager was flitting about bragging about being the hotel manager yet no one did anything to improve a very bad situation. All of the tables were left dirty, water glasses empty, our food was cold, and we were never able to order drink refills. It was clear the wait staff was completely untrained. Definitely avoid this restaurant until they get new management!

During COVID only outdoors dining was available and it was pretty cold. More heaters would be nice otherwise really nice and delicious food and wine.

Showed up and the restaurant was closed for another hour till noon switching the menu even though our reservation was at 11. We reserved for brunch not lunch. We did end up at the restaurant and had a nice meal, but this particular brunch and restaurant was horrible and not as advertised at all. Wait till this virus is ever over before eating here.

The worst food and worst value. Very poor service as well. I was very disappointed in the Bouquet as the property itself is very nice and the hotel was great. We will return to the Hotel but not the Bouquet.

Good food, lovely venue, great service, probably more expensive than it should be. If you have your own Ponte wine you can bring it to dinner and they will open it with no bottle charge.

It was a nice restaurant for the Inn. We were a party of 6 for brunch. Service was a little slow. We had to remind the staff twice that the coffee we ordered hadn't been brought to the tablet yet. They did keep that off the check. We wanted to sit outside, but were told we had to be inside. Staffing issue? The food was good and the price was fair. We had a good time, but not someplace you want to hang out and continue having drinks like we usually do for brunch.

Quality of food was not good. Ordered steak and it was so tough and bland. Had to settle for a burger and thankfully I ordered it with bacon and avocado since the burger it self wasn’t very flavorful. We stayed at hotel for 2 nights and overall stay and rooms are nice. There is better food in Temecula though.

If you fix that then this can really be a good choice. The quality of the food is there.

Had brunch here on a Sunday. Nice quiet atmosphere but the food was average at best. We had the eggs benedict which was nothing special but good enough and the pork belly hash which I would never order again. It was served in a bowl that has a quarter inch of greasy water at the bottom and the potatoes were soggy and the pork belly had no pork on it at all-- it was just the fat and it wasn't crisp so it was pretty unappetizing. The service was very good and probably would've taken the hash back, but we never asked them to. This is a great place to come for drinks and sit outside, but there are much better places to have brunch.

My score would have been a five-star, however it took a very long time to get our two dinners. The waiter apologized but that’s about it. A little disappointing for such a nice restaurant.
