Gorgeous views, food was delicious, and an excellent service
The wine tasting in the spiral holder is so cool and we were impressed by the wine this time since the last time we were there. Yum. The food was delicious and innovative as ever. The service was impeccable. Looking out over the vineyard was so idyllic even on a rainy grey day. Hill Top Winery is the top!
I recommend this winery, my understanding is they grow and bottle their own wines. The winery is elevated with a patio area and nice view of the Valley. My wife & I tried the mixed tasting ($20), 2 whits, 1 rose, 2 reds. I’m not a wine person by a long shot, but I did like their 2017 Tempranillo.
They have a food truck set up, the food wasn’t bad, I had the burger & fries ($17), a little on the high side, but taking into account covid and the reduced seating allowed.......
Overall we enjoyed this winery, the wine, the ambiance and view!
The Venue is beautiful. The food is excellent. The wine is good. The staff was very friendly. I have been here a few times and have recommended it to my friends.
Great ambiance and nice view. The wine and food were excellent! Plenty of room for customers to spread out and feel safe during the pandemic. The servers were top notch!
Dinner at sunset was amazing! The view was stunning and the food was delicious. Mybdate and I each did a tasting and the wine was a great pairing with the steak and scallops we got. Would definitely go again and tell my friends!
Great food. Scenic and relaxing venue, but a bit pricey. Wine is okay to good.
Ranch Red Blend wine was nice. The Raclette was yummy and the Cheese and Charcuterie had a nice selection of cheeses, meats with wonderful bread.
The food is delicious, we enjoyed a beautiful charcuterie board and then the bleu burger with crispy fries. Burger was juicy and flavorful. The house blend red was sooo good as well as the Chardonnay Only complaint is that it was a very cold day, there were only 2 other tables seated but we could only have 1 heater. W
Beautiful place! Will come back again! The food was amazing and the wine was delicious
We didn’t eat but the wine, view and ambiance were lovely- a nice surprise!!!! We didn’t expect much from the area
Great food great people
Beautiful scenery and quiet setting. We'll definitely be going back soon.
Really enjoyed the visit. Will be going back again soon.
Celebrating a milestone event with my wife. Really enjoy Hill Top Winery. Delicious selection of wines. Great ambiance. Wonderful service. Food is good. Charcuterie plate & the Bacon Blue Cheese Burger is amazing, especially paired with a bottle of the 2013 Cab. My only complaint is the burger plate is a little skimpy on the fries & the dessert is small & not noteworthy. Potatoes are cheap! Mound ‘em up! As for a $7 chocolate lava cake, either cut the price in half (it’s cupcake size) or perhaps increase the portion & add some fresh raspberries and/or a drizzle of raspberry sauce? Frankly I’d happily pay more for higher quality dessert, especially since there’s only one dessert option. (Perhaps a joint venture with Julian Pies or San Diego’s Extraordinary Desserts? Just a thought.)
21st bday. A wonderful tower of wines to taste. Outdoor area beautiful with a great view!
They did not know what to do with $25.00 OpenTable rewards card
The ambience of the tasting room and the view of the Vineyard and Valley outside from the patio are breathtaking at sunset. The menu was quite extensive, and our dinner selections we’re very well prepared. We particularly enjoy the ranch house red wine. Staff was very attentive and polite.
Attitude needs to be regulated on the workers. Seems as they had an uregency to go home.
Hilltop Winery is just as the name states. A beautiful setting on top of a hill surrounded by the vineyards. We went for Valentines Day dinner and were very impressed. While there are not a lot of main course selections, the scallop dinner and the Wagyu beef steak dinners were both amazing. The scallops were done perfectly and the steak was prepared to perfection. The sides on both dinners were just as good as the main courses. To finish the meal, a special Valentine dessert was to die for. Meringue heart-shaped cookie, topped with fresh raspberry whipped cream and a scoop of white chocolate ice cream. Of course the wine was wonderful, our favorite being the 2017 Muscat. Great job Hilltop!
Really nice spot. The ladies upfront were super friendly and attentive to all guest
Enjoyable Valentines with my Bride of almost 25 years. Great food & wine. Glad we brought a blanket for the outdoor seating. Going again next weekend!
Delicious offerings with good variety, all nicely complementary to the wine selection.
Food was excellent, wines good a little young. We were celebrating Valentine’s Day. The atmosphere beautiful and the view was very serene. It has a big outdoor fireplace wonderful on a cold day. We liked it so much we became members
Great food. Great views.
Love this place. The staff is always so nice and helpful and the food is pretty good. And you cant beat the view.
Very relaxing and great service
We just bought a home not very far from here. After driving past it a bunch of times we finally decided to stop and check it out. We were really pleasantly surprised not only with the food and the wine but the ambience and view from their outdoor area. We will certainly be returning since it’s only 15 minutes from our new home. If you were on your way out to the casinos, Valley Center or Pauma Valley, You should plan to stop here.
Such a great venue! Nice ambiance, great wine! Loved it
Great spot and only 10 minutes from Harrahs! I love their wine tasting vertical flights, when eating with a large party it saves a lot of table space. Food was delicious, but I bit pricey. Recommend the red wine tasting, loved all of them! Beautiful view 🍷
Nice spot. Great view. Beautiful ambience. Good wine.
Had a wonderful time at the winery... beautiful location, nice wine and very welcoming!!
Wonderful, peaceful place to get out of town. BLT bacon was the bomb👍👍
Love this winery! Staff are friendly & make you feel so welcome. Limited menu, but food is excellent. Try the flatbread, you"ll love it!
This was me and my husbands first time at this winery and our first time wine tasting since the pandemic. The experience was great! Would definitely return.
Always great food and wine. Outstanding service.
Great ambiance, food and service. A hidden gem!
Love the food and atmosphere! Everyone is super friendly!
The winery is a very nice, clean and inviting area! Good view, great food!
This place is a hidden gem; everything about Hill Top Winery is top notch. From the charcuterie plate to the flatbreads, salads and of course the wine. And, to make this beautiful meeting place as perfect as perfect can be, the people who work and run Hill Top Winery are friendly, courteous, helpful and genuine in their passion for what they do and who they serve.
This was my second visit, and I plan to go back again and again. I honestly love this place.
