The Winery Restaurant & Wine Bar has been focused on successfully pairing contemporary California regional cuisine, with a hip, vibrant, sophisticated setting, to create a cutting-edge dining experience. When Partners JC Clow, William Lewis and Chef Yvon Goetz set out to deliver a culinary experience straight from wine county, little did they know that they would also earn the title of Restaurateurs of the Year for their achievements and have their restaurants in Newport Beach and Tustin earn the title of Restaurant of the Year multiple times!
The three partners strive to deliver the best dining experience In Orange County on a nightly basis. Chef Goetz, whose accolades include the AAA Five Diamond Award and multiple Chef of the Year honors, describes his menu at The Winery Restaurant as wine country-driven a perfect match for a wine program that features a list with 650 selections that change weekly and climate-controlled cellars, which can house up to 7,500 bottles!

My friend Elizabeth and I had the best experience at the Winery Restaurant in La Jolla.
The delicious food, along with the ambience, excellent service and attention to detail were the perfect combination for a memorable celebration. I recommend the Winery to everyone who is looking for a extraordinary dining experience.

Food was delicious service was so slow. We had reservations at 7:15 not seated until 7:30. No sign of anyone , no water until 8pm. Server was covering large area, so understaffed? But come on water and a cocktail I can have some patience.

The restaurant was fine, but we are older and the escalator was shut down when we left and it was very difficult to get to our car. Also did not like the herb concoction on the lamb UTC should not charge for parking when you leave after 8

Food was absolutely amazing.

We had a really fun and romantic Date night at the Winery.

Our server and support staff did an excellent job. We really felt welcome and well cared for.

I was super impressed when a supervisor helped clear out plates. I didn’t catch his name but what a class act.

Thanks for being Open.

We made reservations for the restaurant thinking it would be there and they seated us at the wine bar instead . I was confused and probably will not return because they didn’t bother to fix it.

We absolutely LOVE this restaurant! Ambience is nice, food is excellent, and service is great. The music was a little too loud and felt more like a bar because of that. Hard to talk to someone at your own table. I also don't love their change to a QR code for the menu. I want an actual menu in my hands! Scrolling through my phone to view the menu was irritating. They provided a physical wine and cocktail menu, so I just don't buy a Covid excuse. Go back to normal menus (or at least paper) pretty please!!

The Winery does an excellent job of maintaining social distancing and wearing masks. All staff wear masks when at the table with diners and tables are outside and far apart. The food there is always excellent and the service outstanding.
