    Want to compliment our server, Paul, for his exceptional service. There was a small problem we called to his attention and he made sure the manager was told. All was taken care of quickly. Kudos to Paul and his manager. The manager apologized and offered a complimentary glass of wine and a dessert. Would definitely return to this restaurant.

    OMG!!!!! It is rare to find a restaurant that has it all, but look no further, you can add The Winery Restaurant and Wine Bar to your list!! When I say EVERYTHING was great, I mean it! The staff, the food, the aesthetics, the wine, the cocktails, the owner, did I mention the food!!! It was so delicious we forgot to take pictures! This place made us forget about the outside world and we can’t wait for our next “Restcation” in La Jolla!! Thank you JC Clow, our waiter Sasha, and all your Amazing staff for an incredible experience!

    This was a Birthday celebration. Great service and wine recommendations. We ate on patio and was very comfortable with heaters. Lamb rack and short ribs were excellent. Shared several desserts and all very tasty and worth the calories!

    Our waiter was Paul. He is happy and very personable. The manager Jesse is charming and treated us better than family. The special Sea Bass was delicious and I could change the sides on my plate to really meet my tastes. Unfortunately we made off with all the receipts unknowingly. Jesse call me on my cell phone to let me know and she was so nice. They had our credit card information but not the tip amount. She just needed the total to charge on the card. I apologized profusely but she was sooo nice. I’m sure that doesn’t happen often so I was prepared for a little humbug. Much to my relief Jesse was as lovely as she was when we were having dinner. I highly recommend this restaurant. You won’t be disappointed. And try the butter cake for dessert. It’s just delicious!!!

    It was for my birthday dinner and it wasn’t really a busy night. Our server was kind although the service was horrible , Didn’t really check on us and drinks and food was horrible. We had to ask for our plates and utensils. Over all it wasn’t fair for the price that we paid.

    Had an amazing tasty dinner. Always exceptional service and food is always consistent in flavor and taste. Paul was our server and was very attentive and efficient from beginning to end while also training a new waiter. Jessie (manager) also came over to ensure we were having a great time and see if we needed anything else during our evening. Always a pleasure to see her, she is so friendly and kind. The butter cake is a must.

    Perhaps at its inception, the restaurant was excellent, given the talent that went in to establishing it. However, the food quality was mediocre, the service was brusque and the ambiance felt more like a chain restaurant with menu items priced in the $15-20 range rather than $35-50 range. For the price, the quality does not meet expectations. I would not dine here again.

    Even though we had a reservation for 6:30 pm, we had to wait till 6:50 pm. There was a couple who came much later after us had reservation but was seated before us without explanation to me which irritated us. This spoiled much of our experience that evening. The food was very good. The service was fine.

    My wife and I were gifted cards to The Winery. We decided to have lunch there yesterday and it was a wonderful experience to bring in the new year. We were able to sit at a booth and it was early enough that it was extremely quiet. I had their BOB salad and short rib hash and my wife had the wagyu burger. Both of my items were delicious. The short rib was probably the best I've ever had. The host and servers were very professional and attentive. I would definitely come back for some more short rib. :)

    We were sat at a table by the restrooms. Took 45 minutes to order drinks, 1 hour to order food. Appetizer was good but steak and ahi were lacking flavor. Seemed like an off-night for the entire crew.

    I have eaten here 2x in the past week, once at the bar and once at a table. The bar staff are phenomenal as are the host/hostess team. The server was average. The food is solid but varies depending upon what you order. The ny strip steak was surprisingly very good as was my friendss’ salmon but the scallops/shrimp entree was disappointing and over priced for a what was delivered. The bread was excellent as was the in-house made crème brûlée.
