We have been to The Vineyard Rose three times, and have always enjoyed the experience. The food and overall ambiance are great, but service was not up to par on our last visit. We checked in with the hostess 5 minutes early for a 7:30 pm dinner reservation, and were asked to wait just a minute while the staff sets up the table. Not a problem, that is totally normal. We were not seated for 15 minutes - in the meantime, at least 5 couples checked in for 7:30 pm reservations and were seated immediately, with the hostess telling us each time she would be right with us. Around the 7:40 pm mark, the hostess was walking around the bar area, asking every table if they had been helped, or if they needed anything. Meanwhile, my wife and I are standing in the reception area still waiting to be seated for our 7:30 reservation. The hostess finally came over to us and asked me to (for the third time) remind her of the name on our reservation, at which point we were finally seated at 7:45 pm, with no apology or explanation.
Once we were seated, our server was very pleasant, though she only stopped by our table every 10 - 15 minutes. We were not able to order our food until almost 8:30 pm.
As I said, the ambiance and food were great, but the service was lacking. We typically are patient and flexible, having both worked in food service, but it was disappointing and frustrating to wait 15 minutes for our reservation when other couples with the same reservation time to walked in after us were seated immediately. It was not as though there was a big rush that would explain our wait - parties trickled in one at a time, were seated immediately, and the hostess would only reappear when the next party walked in so she could seat them immediately.
Always the best. Fantastic food and great service.
We had an amazing experience. It was our first time here and the service and food were beyond our expectations. We enjoyed the Pork Loin and Sea Bass. Added a Wedge Salad, which was the best Wedge Salad I have ever had and Caesar Salad.For dessert we had the Infused blackberry brownie. Our evening was peaceful and the waiters attentive and accommodating at all times. Would highly recommend. We will be back.
Great anniversary dinner place
Interestingly, our only negative comment about the evening is the coffee...My wife had a Cappacino and I had a decaf coffee...both tasted like dishwater...not bad...but HORRIBLE!
There are many quality coffees available and some fairly local roasters as well...my suggestion is that you upgrade your coffee and instruct your servers how to properly brew.
I'll test it on our next visit...
Honestly, I felt the food was expensive, and basic. The ambiance of the venue is very nice and clean. Also, If you're going on a weekday you don't have to worry about making a reservation. I wouldn't recommend eating here unless you want to lounge for hours and get tipsy on wine.
The grounds surrounding the restaurant are beautiful. We ate outdoors on the terrace, a party of 5 that included 2 children. The menu was interesting, the prices were reasonable, and the food was very good. The service was outstanding. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Great Brunch. Beautiful atmosphere. Fantastic service
Great food, wonderful ambience. Perfect setting for a night out (or for breakfast too!)
Booked early dinner for two with a request for a quiet spot in the restaurant. Yes we did get perfect table, comfortable seats and quiet corner( it was Super Bowl night-not too busy).
Waiter Christina? was super nice and very attentive.
Food was good but not exquisite, definitely with a lot of room for improvements.
My husband got lamb of rack dish, meat was done to his liking but the rest: polenta and ratatouille was just ok, nothing spectacular for the price
I had mushroom risotto, taste was good, but it was too creamy (waitress mentioned that it’s creamy, before I place my order)it could use more spices/herbs to my liking. We also had two side orders, wild mushrooms and roasted Brussels sprouts, both dishes were excellent. For dessert we had créeme brûlée (it was too thick more like putting not cream, but with a nice thin layer of caramelized sugar) and complimentary (for a birthday guest) ice cream with whipped cream(not home made for sure)
I would give 3-4 for food but 5 for service.
Everything was perfect. Probably the best prime rib I’ve had ever.
The food and the service was outstanding. The pork loin was the best I have ever enjoyed. Everything was prepared perfectly! Our compliments to the chef and the entire staff.
Very good, beautiful ambiance
We make the vineyard rose our yearly anniversary dinner place. Food is great, as is the wine. Never have had a bad experience
Very nice dinner in all aspects. Good menu.
This is your typical high end restaurant with big prices and small portions. I would expect in a place like this that the food would be great, but it wasn't. My wife had a Caesar Salad and asked them to take it back. She said it tasted like store bought salad dressing. I tasted it and it was very bland. I've had much better Caesar Salad dressing at other places. I ordered the scallops which cost $38.00. I got 3 large scallops on a flat patty made of carrot with a ton of lettuce on top. The scallops were a "B" and the portion was certainly not enough. My wife ordered the Sea Bass. She said it was "OK". I tasted it and it was very bland and had a fishy taste. Again, it was a small portion with a couple of gold yukon potatoes. It was my birthday so they gave me a scoop of vanilla ice cream. That was nice of them but vanilla ice cream in a high end restaurant. Really (that made it special (Not)). The service was good and the waited friendly.
First time for dinner-did not disappoint. Excellent service, beautiful dining room! Will definitely recommend and return. Thank you
Have never, ever been disappointed when coming
to this fine restaurant . So sorry we missed visiting when the VR is decorated for Christmas.
We have been coming here for several years now and the food and service have always been outstanding. Only once, there was a very large conference tying up the kitchen staff and creating a longer wait time for other diners. Manager came by to apologize and offered to comp dessert.
Recommend highly for their food , service and lovely ambiance.
If you want to seat in a booth and enjoy a romantic dinner, you will have a great time!
We found The Vinyard Rose overpriced for the quality of the food. I had chicken that was overcooked and chewy. The staff were excellent and the ambiance nice but the food is just okay.
Excellent food. Very nice quiet, romantic atmosphere and ambiance. Superb service by Philippe.
Loved the ambiance of this restaurant! The food was delicious and the service was excellent! We will definitely be back!
Have eaten here many times. Always great service and great food!
Excellent venue and ambiance! The dinner was superb and so were our waiters.
Vineyard Rose is always a class act!
Only complaint I have is that we were seated in the back of the restaurant. They were not that busy because the restaurant was going to be finishing up for their lunch service, with a New Year’s eve party to follow a few hours later in their ballroom. One of us faced a wall & the other the front patio. I didn’t think anything of it at the time but when I noticed we were settled in so I didn’t say anything. The main reason we came there was to enjoy the beautiful Christmas decorations… The only decorations that we could see sitting at the back of the restaurant were visible if we looked over our shoulder at the Garland that was draped around our booth. There was plenty of seating in the festive area, and with a reservation, to which we arrived early, I thought it was pretty crummy that would be seated at the back of the restaurant. They were not full.
Beautiful ambiance with delicious food and drinks and the service was excellent. Definitely will continue to come back.
Great service and atmosphere. Bacon was overcooked
My prime rib was excellent! A wonderful place to go during the holidays-dining room was decorated beautifully!
The food is amazing! The scallop fries have been the best scallop appetizer I’ve ever had. Very soft and delicious! Very lovely experience. It felt like if we were at our home in our dining table. It’s a great for a nice romantic dinner. We are definitely coming back!
Food is amazing , service is great. One of our favorite places to eat. We dine there every time we go to Temecula.
Christmas with my family.
Perfect spot for a romantic, Christmas dinner! Decorated beautifully, the restaurant has soaring beamed roof, and seating is mostly cozy semi-circular booths. We enjoyed the roast turkey and prime rib dinners. Our server was excellent and well versed in the vineyard's wines, even comparing vintages of different years for us.
We went for their Christmas special menu. It was a lovely evening. Service was great food was good we’re glad we went.
They are so accommodating! Part of our party had to cancel at the last minute and the restaurant was able to take just the 2 of us at a much later requested time. The bartender went way above and beyond to find us the perfect Christmas wine. Staff was pleasant and surroundings were festive. Our 2nd Christmas here and couldn't have asked for better food or service.
I was disappointed in the service. The table wasn't completely set. We had to wait for our server. The food was excellent.
Had Christmas breakfast because it was one of the few places open on Christmas Morning. Really appreciated everyone who was scheduled to work that morning. Service was fabulous, food was great.
We had an amazing Christmas Eve dinner experience. The food was amazing and a very good portion on their special menu! Between the 4 of us we had all 4 dinners and all were very good. there were Christmas Carolers wandering around that filled the room with music and made it very festive. I have loved eating at this restaurant many times, so we were excited to have a very special dinner there for the holidays and it met all our expectations and exceeded them!
Wonderful way to spend Christmas Eve. We really enjoyed our evening at the winery.
