Need more staffing. Jose and Peter were attending us. They did a fantastic job but seemed to be under staffed. It was my father's 65th birthday. We did want to ask for a little something more of the staff so we just left. We came from 90 miles away. Good experience overall.

All went well and our breakfast was tasty. Staff were friendly. Only issue I have is the waste as far as automatically giving guests packets of salt and pepper instead of asking if guest will require salt and or pepper. Unused condiments get tossed unfortunately and that is unnecessary waste. Would also like to add that gloves are not necessary and do not ensure any additional safety precautions as far as covid is concerned and such really isn't best practice. This too is another example of waste and an additional burden on Mother earth. I still love you Pechanga regardless of these minor mishaps. 😁

My entire plate of food was cold. The baked potato was not done. The prime rib was cold, firm and chewy. Nothing juicy about it. Yuk! The best part was popcorn shrimp appetizer. The waiter, Jason was excellent. A table of regulars ate at next table and said the food is always poor and they only eat there because it’s comped for them. Eat before you go!!

I visited during Valentine’s Day hoping the place would be a nice place to take my date. The server was not attentive. I ordered a prime rib medium with what I was told was house made Mac & cheese. What I got was a huge plate of craft Mac & cheese. When my prime rib came out it was BURNT. Served with sides I did not order. I over heard the lady next to me, who was served pasta that she ordered prime rib well done with the same sides I had been served. She and I joked that I must’ve been served her plate. The meat was tooo dry for me so I asked to please send it back and get me my order. 20 minutes later my waiter returns telling me that he is so sorry but they have run out of prime rib. While he did ask me if I would like anything else, my date had already finished their meal and I booked other things for us to do after dinner. While it was Valentine’s Day the restaurant didn’t look particularly busy. It’s a restaurant in a packed casino so I’m sure the staff should be accustomed to some kind of volume. If it makes any difference my date had pork chops and said they were very good.

Servers were very attentive and courteous. The food was great and served at the right temperature. It was nice to be able to sit down as a family to eat in a restaurant. They followed all protocols for COVID.

Food and service both good. They didn't seem prepared for our reservation and sat the 2 of us at a table for 6. We had requested a booth. After we left I received a text that our table was ready. I called to explain we had already been there. Was told they couldn't find our name and weren't taking reservations. Very confusing.

Considering it was still during COVID, it was pretty nice. Food and service was good, especially for a Saturday night.

At the present time it is difficult to eat inside at most California restaurants. Pechanga Cafe offers a chance to enjoy good food at modest prices. Staying at the resort made the Pechanga Cafe an obvious choice. I strongly suggest others traveling to Temecula give it a try. I was very satisfied with the food and service.

We had a very nice lunch. The food was good and the service was great. We felt they did all they could to sanitize and make sure it was safe. I had the prime rib panini and my husband had the Reuben. Both were excellent!

It was very easy to sit down to eat because of COVID 19, there were a lot of spaces and a few customers. I know it is not good for business but as customers, it was nice. The food was very good but it was a bit pricy just for lunch but I understand since COVID 19, the price of menu has been raised of most of restaurants.
We definitely go back since food was good.

We dined there for brunch on Sunday 12/06 We were given the opportunity to choose from both the Breakfast and Regular daily menu. I had the Cobb Salad which was fresh, grilled chicken still warm from the grill, avocados ripe, and the vinaigrette dressing was delicious. Service was excellent. Drink orders taken as soon as we sat down, and our food once ordered arrived at our table within 15 minutes. Coffee refills were offered throughout our meal, as well as water. We are always happy when we dine at Pechanga Cafe. Friendly welcoming staff and with the outrageous lock downs , we are finding ourselves eating there several times a month.

Food was terrible I ordered the egg sandwich with hash browns after what seemed like forever our food arrived My eggs were runny instead of over hard and the bread was so hard you couldn’t bite through it. I gave up didn’t want to wait. My husband ended up with over hard eggs with his request for Eggs Benedict OVER EASY. We’re done with Pechanga until things get back to normal.
