Great food! We will be back! Let’s bed the pork and a fabulous lemon cake dessert 😋😋😋
The food and service is amazing! It’s our new favorite spot in old town Temecula
We showed up 1/2 hour early for our lunch reservation yesterday. Chef Jay was very courteous and seated Us in the restaurant until they opened. He was very attentive, describing the various items on the menu and personally serving us through the courses of the meal. I very much appreciate his genuine interest in our experience and look forward to a return visit for dinner. Thank you Chef Jay!
We had brunch there and had a "typical" item, eggs benedict, which was anything but typical. From the foccacia to the house cured ham, it was without question, the best eggs benedict I've ever had. It was served with a small kale salad, which was the perfect palate cleanse between bites. We also had the "not so sourdough" cinnamon roll. This was also amazing! We'll definitely be going back to try dinner there.
The food was delicious! It felt like the chef tailored all the dishes for our personal tastes. Which means the service is also spectacular.
The waiter was fantastic. Our drinks (IPA and Agave Sunset) we’re delicious. The food was great and very creative. Having the chef come out to thank everyone after their meal was a very personal touch. My only ding for the place was that I felt the flatiron needed more seasoning. It was cooked to perfection but it felt under seasoned IMO. However the chicken dinner was great as well as the sashimi appetizer.
This was our second time at Latitude by JR. Just like the first time the food and service were impeccable. I love the relaxed atmosphere with elevated cuisine. Because sometimes you want fancy, yet delicious food without the stuffy environment. Can’t wait to go back!
Excellent - favorite place in town!
Of the three meals ordered only one had good flavor. The chorizo dish was bland and poorly matched with gnocchi pasta. The Caesar salad with chicken was pedestrian. The Ham handwich was tasty and nicely prepared. The macaroni/potato salad combo was also very bland. Pairing the pasta with potato led up to think that it might be a combination of leftovers. The furnishings in the restaurant were nice but the vibe is unclear. Are you a sandwich shop, wine bar or restaurant? The menu does not match your decor. Our server was excellent. She was friendly and attentive to our needs.
Thank you for your recent visit. We also wish to thank you for your feedback. We are always looking to improve and better ourselves. We are happy to hear that your service was excellent, but I want to personally apologize that your meal missed the mark. Not living up to your expectations means we did not live up to ours. Please see the private message sent for more detail. Blessings, Chef J
Really great new restaurant in Old Town Temecula. Quaint interior but the FOOD!!!! - just excellent and perfectly prepared. Chef JR is funny, friendly, and man....can he cook! Good wine selection and reasonable prices. We'll definitely be back!
Food was unique and delicious. The service was excellent and the Sangria delightful and refreshing. We enjoyed the Pork, Rib eye and wings as well as the smoked appetizer...all were excellent. Temecula has recreated itself with some new exciting places to dine and this is one of them. Not to be missed.
Food was amazing and the service was impeccable
We ordered the Fig French Toast and Eggs Benedict! Both dishes were delicious. The Eggs Benedict was the best I ever had! I would go back again just for that. The portion sizes were large.
Had a cedar pressed aged steak that was the best steak I’ve had since my Fiorentina ( T-Bone) experience in Florence! I’m still licking my chops when I think about it! It was cooked to perfection exactly as I asked:).
This is a gem of a restaurant to find in old Temecula! The owner greets you, and takes great pride in his service. The food is outstanding, and the ambiance is unexpectedly elegant. We will definitely return!
Good to see JR and all the JR's doing well in this new endeavor. Food, service, people, price, etc. all exceptional. Love what they do and all they are attempting to create.
Very enjoyable. Deliciously unusual items on the menu. Best pork chop ever!
On our arrival, we were greeted by Chef J who showed us to our table and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Our high chair was already in place per our request on OpenTable. The menu was unique and we really enjoyed our drinks, a Mimosa and Bloody Mary, while we looked it over. Three people ordered their breakfast burrito and I ordered the Bibimbap, it was all thoroughly enjoyed and plates cleaned! Not only did we enjoy the chefs conversation, the awesome service, pleasant atmosphere and special menu but we enjoyed our family. It was obvious that the chefs and staff truly care about their customers dining experience and it was very refreshing.
Second time going here and I will absolutely be back. The waiters/waitresses are very knowledgable about the menu. Me and my friends had an absolute blast at the bottomless mimosa brunch. They're all talking about going back already!
Great find in Temecula...if you go get the fig toast
The food was excellent and the service was superb. The mixture of some of the different flavors together made for a unique combination on two of the dishes. The dishes could have been hotter when they arrived. The best part of the meal was the desert. We got three of the six options and loved them all.
Great from the time we arrived. Fresh quality ingredients make for an amazing meal. Very creative dishes!!!
We stumbled across this gem coming in from AZ. Not busy, we were seated immediately. Ordered fig & honey focaccia, split the Caesar salad, pork chop, and chicken entree. Topped off with Desert a la mode. Everything was amazing. Perfectly cooked and presented at our table. Service was wonderful and felt at home. Co owner came to ask to enquire how dinner was and we passed on our praises. Definitely looking forward to returning when in the area!
Awseommplace and people:)
Breakfast was great, Creative and delicious. Would like to go back and try the mimosas, but that day we were going wine tasting. 6 of us and we all liked what we were graciously served. The chef came out of the kitchen to check on us. Great service.
One of the most outstanding dining experience I’ve ever had. The food was amazing, the ambiance was perfect, the service was impeccable. The owner, whom is also the head chef came over to every table and personally thanked them. 10/10 would recommend without a shadow of a doubt.
Went for my birthday & they greeted my whole party with a glass of delicious Wycliff Champagne ... Like seriously, a champagne toast before we even got our waters!!! This is my NEW FAVORITE PLACE in Temecula 🥰 The food was eclectic & tasty & beautiful.
Great service and amazing food!!! Nice ambience as well. We will definitely be back and I’ve told many friends.
Very good flavor on all four different brunch meals we ate.
First time bringing my in-laws for Mother's Day and everything was perfect! Our server Beth answered all our questions and was especially patient with my elderly in-laws. Chef J came out to check on our experience. We never felt rushed, even though the restaurant was fun and busy. The food was FABULOUS! I can't wait to go back and try more things off this ever changing, seasonal menu.
Very interesting and good food variety. The menu has many items you won’t find at other restaurants. But we’ll worth trying.
Service perfect. Choices on menu are different and really delicious. Will be back again as there are really unusual dishes with different take. Chef very talented.
The cauliflower appetizer was so good. My salmon was delicious. The chicken and pork were also great. Our waitress was very helpul and friendly. The chef stopping by to say hello and talk a bit was a very nice gesture.
Always the best experience and the food is delicious every single time.
We had a great experience for our first visit on Friday night to celebrate a friends birthday. We had special dietary needs due to allergies and the owner JR came out and was absolutely accommodating.
Latitude brings a refreshing new menu to the Old Town Temecula dining scene. I look forward to returning to sample more of their menu. If you're interested in good, clean food with unusual flavor combinations then I recommend you visit. The menu changes from lunch to dinner and in between the two dining times the bar stays open for "social hour". From what I can tell, the owners are ever present and very willing to engage in conversation over food, culinary creativity, and community.
Outstanding cuisine in a sea of mediocre Temecula restaurants. Service was personal and impeccable at this small family run establishment. Menu is innovative and wine list includes some good local wines. I highly recommend Latitude as a great place in Temecula to enjoy good cooking with a personal touch, while avoiding the hard drinking crowd.
Excellent Brunch. I would recommend this restaurant when in Temecula for sure!
We were in Temecula for our 5th wedding anniversary and while we wanted to participate in the bustle of Old Town, we were looking for something a little more romantic for dinner than all the gastropubs and speakeasy's. We decided to try Latitude and it did not disappoint. The service was top notch, everyone who worked there was very passionate about working there and the food there. The food was AMAZING. We had a really great time and really enjoyed our interactions with the staff. We look forward to heading back there again next time we are in Temecula.
Wonderful new restaurant in Temecula. The service was impeccable. The owner was so accessible. The food was oitstanding!!!!. Great place!!!
