We arrived at 11:20, 10 minutes before the WINE TASTING schedule of 11:30 and found only 1 other car in the lot, and both doors in were locked. One door to the restaurant and the main door were shut. We left after not bring able to enter. NOT IMPRESSED .

Food was undercooked. It took two waiters and the manager to come and speak to me about what was wrong. I told them that I ordered a hamburger and asked that it be cooked well done, no pink inside. They finally agreed to bring me a new hamburger a half hour later when the others at my table were already done eating. The manager also insinuated that I may have mistakenly thought the Thousand Island dressing "made" it look pink, and put it on the side so I didn't confuse it with the pink meat! Very rude of him to think it was my vision that was the problem. That is not good customer service. And, unbelievablely, the meat was still undercooked despite not putting Thousand Island dressing on top of it. The three other people in our group agreed that it was undercooked. No one came back to check on how it was, and the item was not removed from our total bill.

The girl at the hostess desk was not friendly at all. You order your food at the hostess desk and then they bring it to your table. Everyone got their food except me. The waiter said that was all the food on the order. I said well I ordered my meal with the girl. He said I will go check, if it's not on the order do you want me to put it in? Ah... yes! I got my meal 10 min after everyone finished eating. All of our food tasted like warmed up snack bar food.
We were extremely disappointed because the pictures show the food looking so good.

Came out for lunch. They ran out of shot glasses but Diana was friendly and informative about the area. Enjoyed talking with Penny and Jordan as well as we’re black label members. Better experience with those 3 around than the last time we came out to Monte in 19’

Monte de Oro is the perfect venue to taste amazing wines, try outstanding food and enjoy conversation with friends and family. I enjoyed the Cabernet Franc with my pizza, while my wife had Bolle de Oro with here salad.

Penny served us and was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Please try this winery when in Temecula.
