    The venue is outstanding with calm, quiet, and peaceful views of the vineyards and the shoulders of Mt. Diablo. The food choices are limited but very good, however, there should be more GF and Vegetarian options. We had a Friday 5:30 reservation and were quite surprised when told our food order had to be in by 6, and we had to depart by 7 according to their permit. With some, not excessive, wait time for wines and food, we were eating and drinking in a hurry. This was not the relaxed, lazy experience we thought it was going to be, but perhaps it was in the website info, and we missed it. I will definitely return and suggest not making a reservation past 4:30. Our server, Kevin, was excellent and gave us a nice history of the winery.

    The view, food and wine were awesome. The wait staff was polite but our waitress was not very helpful and knew nothing about the wine she poured us. We did tastings and we got such phrases as “red blend” and she gave the same taste descriptions for all of the reds.

    Beautiful atmosphere with super friendly and knowledgeable staff. We shared the combo charcuterie board along with an order of poke. The poke was delicious! My husband enjoyed the wine tasting while I had the Old World beer flight. The Pilsner and Hefe were my favorite. This was our first time here and we are looking forward to our next

    Early Father’s Day dinner for 2. Reservations required. No one under 21 allowed. You can apply for membership to the wine club which offers discounts on wine and different seating choices on the property. Had the Burrata and Tuna Poke- both fantastic. The prosciutto fig flatbread was amazing and then drizzling honeycomb honey on top ( from bees on the property) was a delight. We also had the steak tacos in a soft shell (you could opt for hard shell). The steak was very tender but lacking flavor on its own. When combined with all the fixings and sauce it was a tasty combination. Unfortunately all the tortillas split apart on the bottom which made it tricky moving them from serving tray to plate and then eating them. I opted for the knife and fork method. We also shared 2 different wine flights and liked all of the wines. We ended up buying 4 bottles! Our server, Lynn, was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. A real treat to have a Napa-style Winery in Walnut Creek. We’ll be back 🍷

    We absolutely loved Shadowbrook Winery! Hands down the most beautiful winery in the east bay that we’ve been to. It’s definitely pricey - more like Napa prices but good food, wine and a lovely place to spend time. The staff was very good as well. Looking forward to coming back!

    We brought out-of-town guests. They said our visit to Shadowbrook was the high point of their stay. Two minor suggestions: 1. It would be good to have brief written explanations of the wines being tasted. 2. On a hot day, how about earthenware water pitchers on the table?

    We sat outside on the patio. It was a cool evening but they had a fierce infrared heater that kept us all toasty. The wine was really enjoyable, and the food was excellent (much better than we expected). A really lovely evening, right in our backyard. Napa vibe without the haul.
