We reserved a table for three which placed us at a small round high top table. Not enough room for wine glasses, water glasses and appetizer plates for three. A glass of red wine ended up spilling all over my white pants. Big prices for big plates with little food.
I do however recommend the winery for the location, ambience, and good wine.

Beautiful pastoral setting at the foot of Mt. Diablo. Modest portions and presentation but the food is delicious.
Shadowbrook has done a marvelous job creating an elegant vibe.

I wish the winery served a wider variety of food. What they have is very good, but quite limited. This is such a friendly place, and beautiful! Right in our backyard!

Ate off paper plates with plastic utensils. Beet salad served in a to go carton and soggy, like it was made days ago. Wine Tasting was too expensive for what you get. Same with food. The flat bread was good but the other foods were not very good. Disappointing and not a good value.

Beautiful venue and setting, great service from Christian. We each ordered just a glass of wine; will come back for a tasting sometime. Tried the Zinfandel and really liked it - ended up buying a bottle to bring home. Their Chardonnay has won accolades, but they are sold out, so hubby had a glass of Chard from their sister winery in Napa - he liked it. Would have liked to try the Cab, but the price point was a little high for my taste! We didn't try the food this time, but what we saw others ordering looked very tasty with beautiful presentation. We look forward to availability of some wine/food pairing events in the future. Tastings and food are pricey, so if you prepare for that in advance, it's an enjoyable experience!

The outdoor seating displays a beautiful view of the vineyards. Outdoor tables are in a patio setting. The day was cooler than expected but felt cozy and comfortable. They also have heaters for chilly days, but we didn't need them. We ordered the combo cheese & charcuterie platter -- twice, margherita and bianca flatbread. Bianca was my favorite, very cheesy with sausage. The wine was delicious -- the Bonneau chardonnay was very smooth so much so one of us ordered two bottles to take home. We were five girlfriends getting together with some of us not having seen each other in over a year, and we had a great time. I would highly recommend and we will definitely be going back.

We had the best experience! This was my second time and had the same lovely and perfect few hours!! The owner Tim is super nice & the chef Joshua is wonderful!! The food he prepares is beautifully plated and tastes sooooo good! I love this winery because it’s in my backyard basically and I feel like I’m so far away! We will be back soon!!!

What a gorgeous Winery it is!! Check-in was easy & then right to our table with NO wait. The server was knowledgeable & very friendly. It was our first time and we went with his recommendations on wine tastings and food. Both by the way were amazing!! You can buy the wine you like on the way out and the olive oil. We can't wait to go back!

This was my first visit to Shadowbrook. Overall, things were good but not great. I ordered a tasting of five wines along with a friend who ordered the same, and it was the first time I’ve ever had a tasting where I wasn’t given a new glass per wine (which seems reasonable for a $50 tasting). Also, the delay between each glass was pretty profound – nearly 30 minutes passed with an empty glass at hand. Our server was fine, but other servers seemed better. Chatting with the owner was a pleasure, and the facility was rather nice (although the gas fire pit was emitting a ton of fumes right onto our table). I will for sure return, but probably will just do wines by the glass and sit in another place. Would recommend a visit anyway!

This is a beautiful place. Unfortunately the wine was not good and at $45 per person we were very disappointed. Our server referred to the vines as Chardonnay bushes. Unfortunately I don’t see myself going back.

Excellent service, beautiful landscape w/views of Mt.Diablo and solid wines. Outdoor seating during a nice Spring afternoon was perfect. Such a wonderful surprise and didn’t have to go all the way to wine country to enjoy! Appt/reservations required and I believe you have to be at least 21.

The setting was very nice. It was good to be close to home but felt like you were far away. Our server was good. However, the hostess was rude and aloof. I her attitude was that she was doing you a favor to ring up your bill. Had they had someone that was friendly and welcoming when you first arrived it would’ve been a five-star place.

It was cold and windy and there was no propane available for our heater so we were stuck...and COLD. The food was...ok but cold within 2-3 minutes after arriving. For the price, it was just not a very good experience. Art was as helpful as he could be but there wasn't much he could do about the weather and, with no available propane, there wasn't anything he could do about that either. Within that the indoor seating should have been available considering...and they should have made sure everything was working...especially for the prices.
