Been coming here for years, we are members. View is the best in Temecula and new patio adds even more seating. Tried the sandwich special, delish!
We are members and just love the place.
I love this winery! The wine is great, the service is awesome, and the view is a show stopper. I would recommend this winery for any occasion.
Enjoyable wine and Welcoming staff and the pizzas are very good! The grounds outside and the view was beautiful. We enjoyed are visit and will visit again!
This is a known experience for us. Good food, good service and my dogs are welcome here.
Never disappointed when we choose Cougar Winery for an afternoon lunch. Sangio’s Deli has a wonderful menu and their pizzas are the BEST! The selection of Italian wines are also a perfect compliment. My husband loves the beer on tap. And...who can’t love the view!
Staff very friendly. Food was good. We had the BLTA. Many menu items were not available so don’t spend a lot of time going through the menu and then be disappointed. Ask what is not available first. Enjoyed the view. Went on a Tuesday at noon. Just a few people and lots of distance between seating. Lots of white wines. Good selection.
I feel very safe at Cougar which is why we frequent there! They care about sanitation and mask wearing. My pizza was hot and fabulous with my Sangio +. The new deck is phenom but I still like my patio table. I had a reservation and was seated in no time. Our food came about 30 minutes later because they were really busy but we enjoyed our wine and view so it was plenty fast enough. The people next to us pre-paid for their pizzas and they were ready when they arrived for their reservation. Hmmm, I didn't even think of that!! Anyway, it is a pandemic. Thank you Cougar!
Wonderful day very relaxing environment and not pretentious at all
Great view. OK food. Wine is overpriced for the quality.
Felt a bit mislead from listing on open table. No table side service food came from a deli operation and it showed in quality and presentation. Venue and scenery was very nice
Great outdoor seating, wine tasting was streamlined, new patio chairs with a view is a nice update.
Overall it was a great experience. If you’re looking for a low key winery where you can relax, this is the place. Make sure to make a reservation ahead of time to get seats (2) with amazing views! Each seat has a view. The wine tasting has a good selection. The pizza was tasty, however it never came out and was cold by the time we got it.
Out of nearly everything. Order came out wrong.
Great time little chili but we had jackets :)
Worth the drive. Great wine. Great food. Great views. Awesome people. 10/10
Amazing place and wonderful pizza. Can't find pizza and Italian wine in one place anywhere else.
My wife and I visited on Valentine's Day and had a very nice time. We had a reservation at 11:00 and were seated on a quiet but very nice patio. There were only a couple of other people there, but it filled up substantially before we left. We ordered our food at the counter before we sat down, and enjoyed some wine while we waited. The wine was quite good. The food service left a little to be desired. We ordered bruschetta, a meatball appetizer, a salad and a pizza. It took a while to come out, which was fine... we weren't in a hurry, and we had wine! The pizza came out first, and about 10 minutes later, the bruschetta, and 5 minutes after that, the salad and an order of raviolis. We didn't send the raviolis back because we didn't want to wait, and they looked pretty good! I'd skip the bruschetta next time, but the rest of the food was tasty. Not fancy, but hit the spot.
Overall, I would definitely come back. The ambiance is great, the wine is good, and the food makes for a nice experience.
Went for the Valentines Day special, the ambience was great, seating was outdoors but it’s was cold and windy and they didn’t have any outdoor heaters. The food wasn’t great. It came with a small heart shaped pizza which was to be split between two people & it was a disappointment. The Caesar salad was even worse, they threw it together on a small paper plate & that was also supposed to be shared between 2 people some how? The wine was great though! Will definitely be back for the view and the wine.
Pizza was very good. We also ordered a panini and cheese platter that was not good.
However, the Wine was delicious
The wine is very tasty, the pizza and sandwiches are great and the view cant be beat.
Love the atmosphere wine is fantastic and great service.
They finally got a seasonal specials menu! Tried the Inverno Salad and husband tried the Alfredo Chicken pizza...yummy! Enjoyed our wine and the view from the new lower deck. Always a great visit, thanks!
Great service. For the most part socially distanced, I had no worries and I’m a staunch “stay back” person. Loved the wines and the people were great (as always)!
We love Cougar! We’ve been going there for years but now it is always a lunch date! Food from the deli is wonderful!
Prompt, friendly service and delicious wine! Always a pleasure to visit!
Cougar is a wonderful winery! Ambiance is nice, view is beautiful, food is delicious & wine is wonderful!
Lovely outdoor setting with attentive staff. Great place for lunch. The best wine and view in all of Temecula wine country!
I love my winery!! Food is always excellent, wonderful people helping and serving. Jennifer has added a step-down area with more Adirondak chairs providing a great view overlooking the vines!
Visited on a busy weekday and the service was fabulous! Wine and food delicious as always. Met the new wine dog too...Chili or something like that!! Please support local businesses like this one.
The food and wine is amazing and worth a visit. Just don’t expect to feel welcomed, their service has been consistently mediocre at best. How dare customers come to visit or need anything!
Were seated in the Adirondack chairs which is my favorite spot to sit while I'm at Cougar.
Cougar is our favorite place to grab a pizza and a glass of wine. The best bbq chicken pizza around!!! We highly recommend pairing it with the Barbera! So good!
Good food and great wine. The pizza was delicious!
Told them we were celebrating our anniversary and not a word or compliment from the staff. Because of Covid only pizza was available and little choice of wine
We love sitting outside at Cougar and are excited about the patio expansion.
Always a great place to get some good food and wine and relax with beautiful views and great service.
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 ♥️
