Great winery. They have timed seating so reservations are a must. Good variety of wine and food selection.
Monte de Oro is a great place for wine and food. All staff is great. Mary our waitress is the best.
The food and wine were great. Our server, Riley, was excellent. Overall an outstanding experience at Monte De Oro.
Excellent as always. Mary was her usual friendly self. Wine and food were great as well. Thanks for a fun time.
The winery is beautiful but the wine itself was only OK. We went to several wineries and this is one of the only ones that I did not buy a bottle of their wine. The food was good, not great. The server was great. Overall, 4 out of 5, would likely not return
Amazing view and excellent service the whole staff was kind and helpful was my first visit definitely will come again soon
Mary was wonderful as always! I’m a member and have been for 5yrs. One of the biggest reasons I always go back is for the amazing service!
Great food, great wine, in a relaxed outdoor patio atmosphere. Loved it!
We are wine members here so we obviously love their wines. Our lunch was very tasty. I had a pizza with goat cheese and honey and salami. Each ingredient is great on their own, but put together is a delicious experience with every bite. My husband had the pulled pork sandwich that he described as tasty but small. Good thing my pizza was big enough to share a slice or two with him.
Food was amazing, wine delicious, and server was nice. Only complaint is they didn’t have outside heaters like most other places. We went for Valentine’s Day and it was very cold. Since it is outside, my only suggestion would to add some heaters to keep guest warm, we probably would have stayed longer and ordered more wine if they had them. ❤️
Beautiful winery with sweeping views of the hills. Service was great and all the wines were delicious.
The service here is awesome. The wine is great. The children sandwich was delicious. The Margarita pizza tasted like a store bought pizza. I live outdoor dining, but this one was not a good experience. The fact that there were no heat lamps when it was very cold and windy outside was not fun at all. All I could do was wish the server would hurry up and bring us our check so I could get to my car and defrost. I was miserable and that was no way to spend Valentine’s Day. We rushed through our food as fast as we could and got out of there.
Mary was an amazing host as always. We ate lunch and all food selections were awesome!!!!
Valentine’s Day lunch and wine tasting
Service was excellent and found some great wines!
The winery, service, view, wine were excellent. The burgers (seemed to be what everyone ordered) delicious. Saw an amazing looking cake at another table, gotta try that next time. Server - I believe Riley was awesome. Been looking for a new winery/club to join and I think I found it. They handled Valentine's Day and reservations very effectively, no problems at all. Very welcoming and helpful trying to acoomodate people without reservations
Another amazing time at Monte De Oro! We love coming to Monte and cannot wait to come back!
Celebrating our 30 anniversary
Valentine’s weekend in wine country . Our waiter was so nice, the ambiance and view was beautiful. My only complaint would be the wine flight was served in plastic rubber container which for this place was kind of cheap looking and not nice. First time I didn’t take a picture of my flight because the presentation was ugly. Wine, cheese board and goat cheese pizza was delicious.
With this outside eating due to covid restrictions. They didn’t have any heaters, and it was cold, uncomfortable cold after 45 minutes. We didn’t enjoy the food, the menu was like a fast food restaurant, sandwiches and burgers. The food arrived and 10 minutes later they were taking the order for the wine. Long story short, I think they weren’t ready for the reopen but they couldn’t missed the Valentine weekend sale. We’ll wait for summer time, maybe the experience will be different, I did enjoy the Cabernet.
Fine winery to visit. Beautiful views. Best to go mid-afternoon for snack and wine flight.
Riley our server was awesome!!!!! As was Austin he seated us. the entire staff was great!!!!
Everything was fantastic!
Monte de Oro went above and beyond to make our afternoon outstanding!
Had an amazing time... The wines were great and the scenery was beautiful
This is a great outdoor spot for lunch with friends or family.
The staff and patrons are practicing social distancing, and the tables are set up far greater that 6 feet apart, so no worries!
With outdoor dining in chilly weather, space heaters would be appreciated.
We seriously enjoyed the wine, the fountain, and the view. The food was very good. We would have preferred if the kitchen were willing to respond more flexibly to individual requests (toss the salad or change regular fries to truffle fries, for an upcharge), but we plan to return.
We had a great experience overall. The wine was very good and the few appetizers we did have were excellent and good portion
21 year old son ‘s first wine tasting
My wife and I are wine club members. Both of us a glass of wine and lunch. Meat balls and a salad. Great food for the price. Our waitress (JoJo ) took great care of us. Nice conversation.
Enjoyed our day at the winery even under COVID regulations. Outdoor patio with nice views. Delicious wine, fantastic appetizers and terrific service. Even met David, the winemaker as he stopped at each table to greet guests. Can't wait to go back!
Great time and our server was amazing. The food and wine was great.
Monte De Oro really made our party of 6 feel comfortable during these COVID times. Everything was clean, all staff and patrons were in masks, and our server was very attentive. Our food came out quickly and was shortly followed by our tastings. The changes they’ve made to adjust for COVID made sense and were helpful. Great experience overall!
Outstanding wine, amazing food, top notch service and a view that won't quit! What more could you ask for?
Great food and great wine. Great experience.
Mary was the perfect person to recommend wine tastings for our meal. Chef Alfred made and amazing Honey and Goat Cheese pizza and a wonderful Cobb Salad.
The added umbrellas provide much more shade and a colorful ambience. Monte de Oro has a huge patio with lots of seating. Reservations are recommended and easily made on the Open Table app. Excellent food and great wines.
It was a well organized experience from check in, to place food order, to seating on the patio. The food was very good. It was a beautiful afternoon with a gorgeous view from the patio. Mary was our server and she was outstanding. We will do this again when restaurants are allowed to have patio dining again.
Great atmosphere. Great service. Great wine. Always a great time.
Always love visiting your winery. Wine is always good.
Monte de Oro is a beautiful venue for wine tasting and snacks.
