Very nice experience.
Our server Robin was extraordinary.
The olive oil was very smooth.
The wines we had were all good.
We’ll be back.
It was very nice and intimate outdoor seating.. everyone was friendly from the two servers the deli man, to the other visitors.. best wine 🍷 premitivo port - dessert wine. It is Devine and I cannot get enough ♥️
Dud to the COVID restrictions, we ordered our pizza to go. It was awesome, as always. We also bought some bottles to take home. The service was great.
Had to wait 45 minutes after ordering for 2 sandwiches. After we advised our waiter we were pressed for time.
We found her near the kitchen pouring a dozen different wine tastings for other tables instead of checking on our food with the cooks.
Extremely poor service. We will not be visiting again.
My friends and I had a good lunch and wine. The pizza’s are good.
My wife and I had a great lunch at cougar the other day. Very tasty pizzas and great wine.
Everything was good about the facility. The people that arrived after us, a group of 5 or 6 were very noisy at first. They were constantly shifting the wooden chairs around making load screeching noises. Never seeming to be happy where they were pointed. If they had attempted to lift the chars or ask for help that would have been better. It was hard to relax and that is what it’s all about right.
If you want to know what it feels like to be sipping wine in the Italian countryside, Cougar Winery is as close as you'll ever get to that feeling in California. The staff are friendly and thoughtful, the food is delicious and well proportioned, and the wines are the best in the Temecula Valley.
Safe and fabulous outdoor seating with delicious wine and a great lunch menu.
We love the Adirondack chairs and fell in love with the wine the server suggested! Fantastic experience!
I feel safer here then I do doing to the grocery store or mall. Makes sense to restrict wineries that are completely outside? Anyway, great service, food and wine as usual!
Had a wonderful time !!!
Yummy prosciutto pizza and chicken ceasar salad. Staff was extremely friendly, accommodating and safety conscious.
Best food greatest wine - everyone at cougar go beyond and out of the way to make you happy - love this place!!
Outstanding experience like always! Excellent wine and incredible service!
Always a great time and great wine! One of the best views in the valley too.
Had never been here before and was disappointed that they were not doing wine tastings on a Sunday because they were “too busy”. They were only selling wines by the glass or bottle. Kind of hard to make a decision when I never tasted any of their wines. Probably will not go back. Had a much better experience right next door at Frangipani. Better patio with better views and actual wine tasting. Bought two bottles because I could actually taste their wine!
Cougar's staff is consistently friendly and helpful. Their set-up for distancing has been addressed well.
Wine is wonderful and Cougar has a lot of varieties. Food is great!
Great wine and cute location
Love the Barrio. Great food and drinks!! Right on the heart of Carlsbad village!
I always have a great time at Cougar. The wines are awesome and the food is beyond good.
The food was good and the service was very good. Was a nice relaxing day.
My favorite Temecula Winery bar none!
Consistently excellent wines from varietal to vintage, great people and Sangios Deli selections are off the chain excellent.
The setting, inside and out, is informal and pleasant. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Wines are excellent and Sangio’s Deli offers delicious pizzas, salads, sandwiches, and other choices.
Nice outdoor shaded patio with beautiful views! The food is always good and less pricy than other surrounding wineries!
Always have a great experience at Cougar. The service was great...thanks Lisa! Food was delicious and wine is the best!
I had requested the adirondack chairs but the person taking the OpenTable reservation did not notice my request. We were given a table, but the service was really slow due to not enough servers to accommodate all the people there. The food and wine were excellent as usual.
Made reservations, outdoor seating was great, good experience
My husband and I LOVE Cougar Winery. Our server Lisa was amazing. The Deli has great food.
Great place, we are members and love the view and the quiet.
Really nice winery, small and cute! Food was delicious and the wines were great too! I love their outdoor picnic area, dog friendly, kids friendly. We will definitely go back!
A beautiful venue to enjoy a fall afternoon of wine tasting.
Food and service were amazing. We honestly couldn’t believe how good the pizza and ravioli were.
We will be back!
Great service, good food, wine testing was ok
Outstanding personalized service and truly enjoyable wine like always!
The staff was so nice and wine knowledgeable. Food was also great, but we come for the wine!!! Thanks for making us feel safe too!
This place is amazing. People are friendly and staff is wonderful and friendly.
We reserved a TABLE and were pointed toward 2 deck chairs on the side of the building. Servers ignored me when I asked for an eating surface. When I pushed, I heard from both of them: I'll see what I can do. Then they continued to ignore us. After 20 minutes we left. We saw a bus turning into the property as we left and they may have been anticipating a crowd but you should give a table to someone who has reserved a table and in no case should you ignore your customers. We felt like members of an undesirable group.
Hi Gail, Sorry to hear about your experience. How did you reserve a table? I looked at your reservation and it only mentions that you were celebrating an anniversary, no seating preferences were part of the reservation. Most couples enjoy the view and the chairs so it wasn't meant to be a bad experience but the opposite. We usually ask if the chairs are acceptable before seating so that seems like an oversight. Do you remember who sat you? We were extremely slow Halloween so I'm at a loss.
One of my favorite wineries in the valley to go to when I want to get away for the day!!
Had a nice patio table with a view. The sunset was AMAZING!
