Absolutely fantastic winery great food great wine great service.
The staff makes us feel at home!!!!!
Very good bistro food and the red wines are the best in the Temecula Valley!
whether you are a member, or not a member, Monte de Oro treats you like the neighborhood bar or restaurant. Once they know your name, they dont forget it and treat like family every time you come back. Its relaxing and energetic feel without the feeling of most wineries in the area where you feel like cattle coming through the door. the Food is great! All the servers (wine tasting staff turned into servers due to COVID) has been there for a long time, so when you come back after COVID, seeing a familiar face brings comfort and lets you know the owner did something right for them to come back.
The food and wine are worth the go if you don't mind inadequate service.
Great food, wine and staff. It’s always a great time!
Very nice experience, staff was fun and attentive! Will def go back. Beautiful sunset views.. Perfect for a romantic dinner date.
I found the time limit really annoying. We were not aware there would be one, so we got the 11am time thinking that by 12/12:30 we would be hungry, instead we had to leave. I was there with friends so their impression of Monte de Oro was not a good one since we were rushed out. We had time for one glass each and I even purchased a case of wine, but still had to leave. I will probably close my membership after this next pick up.
Monte De Oro is beautiful and their wines are delicious. I ordered the grilled chicken sandwich on focaccia bread and a side salad. My husband ordered the burger and fries. We spilt a bottle of Congruity. It was all delicious.
First of all my server was rude!!! Second of all there was a HAIR on my pizza, I was so disgusted and disappointed, the server didn’t really apologize for it they did take it off my tab but I was just very upset
Service was fast, food (cheese burger was delicious) , wine was great.
My experience at Monte De Oro was over all ok. I thought the food was over priced for what we got. It was very tasty but unfortunate the sandwiches we ordered were quite dry and barely filled with steak and pork. We were eating a lot of bread since they were not proportionally prepared so that was disappointing to us, again given the price of our meals. The fries however, were really good. I was pleased with the unique seasoning and the Cabernet was my favorite from their selection. Overall, I have had better food and ambience at other wineries nearby so unfortunately I won’t be returning to Monte De Oro.
Nice atmosphere, outdoor dining with a great view. Wine was excellent with reasonable prices.
Our waiter was outstanding! I wish I could remember his name so he could receive some well deserved recognition.
Such a beautiful view. Warm friendly staff and outstanding wine. The Bistro is limited, but delicious.
Dinner and drinks. What an evening. Super chill and Jojo took care of my wife and I. We don’t normally buy wine to take home but we bought three wines. Only two survived the night. Thank you Monte de Oro for the much needed break from reality.
The food and wine was wonderful as always, as was the service. We are always treated so well when we visit.
All tables and chairs sanatized after each seating of people. Very safe place to eat and enjoy wine.
Always great wine and excellent food. Thanks for a terrific experience.
Wines are terrific, the food is great! The staff is super helpful and very knowledgeable about their wines.
Very out standing with CDC regulation. Service and food was good.
We have a wonderful afternoon 😊
our server Faith was quick and excellent !
This is a great place to chill with friends and family and the food has always been outstanding!
Riley and his brother Brodie helped to make our late lunch experience just wonderful. The food was delicious, our service was spot on, and the wine was a perfect compliment to the end of a great afternoon.
The wine was delicious, the ambience was beautiful and the service was excellent! Other than a few appetizers, we didn’t have much food.
Monte De Oro has a large and really nice patio. The food is excellent. My husband had the Farmhouse burger and thought it was amazing. The wines are delicious and atmosphere happy. What’s not to love about enjoying some fine wine outside on a beautiful day. Our waitress, Becca, was an exceptional hostess ensuring we had everything we needed.
Great time. Everyone was very friendly and our group was accommodated with last minute changes. The food was good and the wine. Definitely will go back!
Service was great wine was great food was super good will go back again
Really inflexible about substitutions and had a chunk of chicken in my burger...gross.
I love this winery. They've made it comfortable and enjoyable. The service is impeccable. Our server was Mary and she's awesome. We had a great day. Thank you!
The day was a beautiful not too hor not too cold ...perfect to sit on the patio and drink wine.
The wine was superb, the food was fabulous and the service was delightful. I recommend you go and enjoy!!!
Thanks Becca for a fun afternoon sampling wine and eating good food.
We joined the wine club.
Monte D’oro winery is a terrific place to have lunch. The menu, while not the most extensive has enough choices to satisfy most. Our Bruchetta was without mozzarella cheese, but still so delicious with its pesto and balsamic glaze. The charcuterie platter was fresh and tasty, enough for 2. It had some interesting cheeses and fresh meats. The wines are also terrific, especially most of the reds with our favorite, a red blend called Simplexity, which is a great name for it.
The setting is beautiful with enough COVID space in this outdoor eatery for safe dining. All staff wore masks and were very helpful. 😋
Really enjoyed the venue. Great food. Beautiful landscape. A beautiful fall day
Set up nicely for Covid protocol. Great food, superb wine, great service.
Monte de Oro is a great winery with good wine, food, and staff. Penny took really good care of us as she has for years. Always a pleasure stopping by at MDO.
great food and wine, outdoor seating was wonderful.
Very pleasant excellent service and remarkable burger.
I have never been to this winery… We actually went for lunch, we wanted to find a pretty setting to take my mother-in-law to since she has not been out of her place for nine months! (Not a parking lot with umbrellas) It was a beautiful setting, and the food was excellent. The service was very good and they definitely went by all the Covid guidelines.
And did I say the wine was good too! We will definitely be back!
