    Cougar has always made us feel at home, whether if it is just a day date or we bring our 2 kids to have lunch and enjoy a glass of wine and the view. They have always made our children feel welcome and that is why we are members and will keep going back!

    We reserved a table for lunch in Open Table and we had a gorgeous view of the grape vines. The wine was yummy and the food delicious while also being reasonably priced. We loved seeing all the dogs which were quite friendly.

    We visited for Mother’s Day and the location is beautiful! The food was well priced and delicious. Sandwiches are fresh made and the pasta salad was lovely. However, our frustration was with the service. We ordered a pizza and two sandwiches and requested that the pizza be delivered with the sandwiches so we could eat together as a family. We understood the pizza would take a while so we were willing to wait. We were told as we ordered that this was fine. However, this is not what happened, the sandwiches came out about 15-20 minutes before the pizza. And when asked about this, our service responded with frustration towards us, saying the pizza takes longer than sandwiches. Then we had to send a sandwich back because it was not made how it was ordered, it seemed to be a disconnect with the ordering system. Unfortunately, we just felt as if we were a bother to the waitresses/waiters and this left an unfortunate taste in our mouth, we probably will not be back.

    Absolutely LOVE this place. The staff is so nice and welcoming. The food is great!! Reminds me of a NYC Deli/Pizza shop style eatery. We've been 3 times now and it continues to get better!! It doesn't feel so uptight and proper. A very relaxed and family friendly atmosphere!!

    Cougar winery is one of not the best value for your buck. They have delicious deli food that goes beyond traditional deli. Is also nicely away from the more popular wineries in Temecula, which makes it refreshing. Definitely recommend it to everyone to visit.

    Staff is rude and not helpful whatsoever. Instead of helping customers find a different table with 90% of the restaurant open, they rudely refused and said that is not possible. It was freezing, had a 10-month old baby and her grandparents shivering outside. We will not support a business run with jerks.

    We love eating at the deli in Cougar winery. The food is cooked to order so enjoy a glass of wine you are waiting! My favorite lunch is the margarita pizza! The antipasto salad is big enough for two! The wines are terrific.!!! There are so many delicious choices but my favorite is Pink Cougar😍

    Very disappointed in the service this time. Did not feel like we were treated nicely. We were ignored. The food service was terrible. However we enjoyed our food. The tastings are for 4 instead of 6. We are going to look at other wineries to join.
