                                      Very pleasant experience at Desert Wind from moment we walked thru the doors, greeted promptly and sat in a pretty expansive outdoor setting, very southwest type atmosphere. Had Cod crustinis and wedge salads, both were delicious. Petit Verdot was pretty good as well. Our server was very nice gentleman who took good care of us. They were out of one dish that my husband wanted to try but we so enjoyed our time there that we will be going back soon.

                                      We were in the area for a few days and had been here before when touring wineries. The food was delicious but they have a limited menu. The steak was a NY Strip, it was a little on the grizzly side. Should really rethink the choice and serve a rib steak.

                                      The food was very good. Even our picky eaters enjoyed it. Would have liked a side of potatoes to go with burger

                                      We had Mothers Day brunch - the drinks were good, one plate of food was cold, service was a little slow and it didn’t seem real organized with the waitstaff and it took awhile to get our order placed. We’ve been another time and it was a really nice experience - may have just been short handed or newer staff this time.

                                      Unfortunately we sat for over an hour and never received the last two pours of our wine tasting. We wanted to have a nice lunch and enjoy the space but they were so understaffed we barely had service. We paid full price for both wine tastings and the appetizer. Very nice staff, good food, good wine but utterly disappointed with our overall experience that we were so looking forward to. They should pour the whole tasting at once if there is no staff to manage tables and / or not allow people to book reservations.

                                      We showed up for our appointment that was scheduled almost two weeks in advance and the doors were all locked and no one to be found. I tried calling their number three times trying to get ahold of them including once before we arrived. Finally, someone came to the door and said they closed early but couldn’t be bothered to reach out to their reservation people. She then said she could pour us a glass of wine but couldn’t do a tasting for some reason that made no sense but we awkwardly accepted. During that time she then told us that the entire kitchen staff walked out earlier that day which raised a red flag in our minds as well. The whole experience was just polar opposite of what we expected based on all of the research I had put into it for our trip. Be wary of any experience you attempt to book with them…

                                      Quite disappointing. We had a wonderful dinner at Desert Wind about three months ago, so decided to return. Not what we had before, that is certain. The service was so-so as it appeared that there were not enough servers for the numbers of people in the restaurant and tasting room area. The kitchen seemed overwhelmed, as well. Two of us ordered the steak entree. The flavor was good, but the meat had been cooked to medium rather than medium rare. I had the duck leg. Have no idea where the risotto was, which the menu stated came with it. Radicchio was provided instead. Not a good substitution. Not sure that we will be returning. I notified the restaurant directly about some of my concerns, but I have not heard back.

                                      My reservation was cancelled on the 17th and I was not the one who did it. No one from the winery bothered to call.

                                      This was for a Wine tour, provided by Prosser Wine Excursions. Your menu needs to include what wines they’re getting for their tastings. Customers were not happy with not knowing. Server not very knowledgeable in Dessert Wind wines. Introduction to the each wine - is key to wine tastings if you plan to profit off selling wine, handing the customer a piece of paper to describe the wine is weak. Not sure if I’ll be back for wine tastings, but for food - yes. Food was awesome except for charcuterie board, cheese was dry and meats didn’t complement wine. Nobody likes pate’ - gross. Check out 14 hands or Alexander Nicole’s charcuterie plates for good boards. I take people to places with good wine, good atmosphere and good charcuterie boars and food last…. As most don’t want to eat large meals on the wine tours.

                                      Great restaurant in wine country! We all really enjoyed our meals. Great wine too. And our server was awesome. They even accommodated our friends who were dairy free and gluten free.

                                      Overall it was a great dining experience. The greeting staff were all very friendly, personablee, and we were seated quickly with our reservation. When we entered the dining area, I really enjoyed the large wine barrels that surrounded the room and it really seemed to be an intentional and thoughtful way to keep to the winery theme. The only draw back to the seating arrangements was that I felt that it was a little too open. I felt a little exposed, however, the tables were separated very well. I suppose I would rather feel exposed than really cramped, so it was still good. The wait staff at our table were awesome! Very attentive, knowledgeable of the food and wine, and made me feel like I wanted to talk to them. The food was just as incredible. My wife and I both ordered the steak, and I'd have to say that mine was probably the best I've had in a long time. I'm not exaggerating when I say that my steak was cooked exactly to the doneness that I wanted. Flavor was amazing too. Dessert was a raspberry sorbe with a hardened dark chocolate shell. This was a perfect finish and also matched well with my red wine I was drinking. I would recommend to anyone and I hope to go back for more.

                                      Nov 13. The event seem to take all of your employees energy and so those of us in the regular tasting room pretty much didn’t really get service. In almost 2 hours, we received one wine tasting flight and a half cold BLT. Not ready to rush back anytime soon.
