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!
Always a great visit and enjoyed my Montepulciano with my friends. Great job by the servers and deli!
Cougar has things flowing well. They take you to a table and take your order and deliver your food and wine. Food is great and of course love their wine!
We belong to the wine club here and always enjoy our visits!
We arrived on time and our reservation was for outside and it was COLD. Cougar was able to accommodate us in the barrel room and it was amazing! Food, service and of course the wine was wonderful!
The Italian Grilled Cheese sandwich is one of the reasons we keep coming here when we are wine tasting in the area. The other reasons are the wine and the great view from the adirondack chairs.
Delicious and peaceful atmosphere. Thank you.
Always happy with Cougar winery! The deli has amazing food!
This was our first time visiting a winery in Temecula. We had an amazing time at Cougar winery celebrating our daughters birthday. I would highly recommend this winery. Wine tasting was a fun experience for all.
The servers at Cougar are so nice and they know their wine!
Such beautiful views and amazing tasting selection
Very nice patio with a great view. Food is inexpensive and great wine.
Location was beautiful. Service was really bad ex:
They forgot the cheese on the caprese salads.
It took 30 minutes between the first tasting and the second. They gave us the 3rd tasting of wine forgetting about the 2nd wine tasting.
We finally got up to leave before even having the final tasting.
However the manager did realize this and gave us our last tasting in a plastic cup to go and free brownies.
Great views, Great wine and a Very friendly staff.
My ceasar salad was delicious. Hubby had the classic Italian sandwich, got extra dressing for the pasta salad and it was great too! Sat in the chairs with the view. Relaxing with a glass of wine and beer!
Cougar Winery is one of our favorites. The view from the large Adirondack chairs is amazing, the service is friendly, the deli meals are always delicious. And, the wine is wonderful. The prices for the wine and deli food are very reasonable. They request reservations for Covid reasons, so it is always a pleasant experience. Because we live in Temecula, we go during the week when it is not “weekend busy”. Highly recommend!
Really like the vibe here. Great view from the Adirondack chairs out back. Wine was above average, including varietals not familiar to most American casual wine drinkers. Would definitely recommend.
The food, the wine, the service.....all outstanding. We were there Sunday as well. We just love Cougar Winery. Rick and Jennifer did an excellent iob with the winery.
Cougar had excellent wines and excellent food. I found Cougar Winery 15 years ago and haven't left.
Fabulous food and view, and very Covid safety-conscious.
Service was subpar. Staff was okay. Food was okay. Will not be back.
