    This was my second time here, but the first visit for my two guests. We split four menu items. Everyone agreed that the food was fantastic! The service was good too. I'm always thankful for the staff that continually shows up to serve. We highly recommend this restaurant.

    I made reservations on line, specified outdoor seating, never heard back. I called the afternoon before the reservation spoke to Carlos the manager and asked if it was marked as outside seating. He said yes. We arrived at the restuarant and they said there was no outside seating available, that it was first come first serve. I said, we would have made other arrangements if that was the case. Since we were stuck we sat inside but they told us that Carlos would come to our table. He did and started an argument that he said it was first come first serve. I said I just spoke to you 2 hours ago and your said nothing. At this point arguing was a waste of time, but he made NO EFFORT TO MAKE US ANY MORE COMFORTABLE. I have never had a mgr. argue with me. No matter who is correct, the customer is always right! Did he comp drinks or desert - NO! We spent a lot and because of his attitude I will not go back!!

    We had dinner reservations for 4, not a special event but we wanted a nice dinner out. The location and atmosphere is very nice but the food was mediocre at best, the steak portion size was vey small and the service was substandard! The server was very inattentive, took forever to take our appetizer order and open our bottle of wine. For the money I expect, and we should get better food and service!

    My friend and I ordered the BOB salad with chicken. The chicken was very dry, the amount of bacon in the salad was laughable. Maybe 1/8” wide and 1/2” long and very few of those. The salad did not taste like blue cheese dressing at all.

    This is now our 4th visit to The Winery. I have to say this is how a restaurant should be! The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. They really focus of providing you with an overall satisfying dining experience. Our server Austin was very friendly, professional and attentive and "read our minds!" The food was delicious! Kudos to the chef! Everyone was happy and we look forward to our next visit.

    A slightly corporate/business feel to this restaurant. Good food. Waiter wasn’t terribly personable, maybe a bit shy. Complimentary birthday dessert. Food was good. Had salmon and chicken dishes with wine. Tried it once, probably wouldn’t return, but it was a pleasant visit. Park near Soul Cycle in parking garage. Two hours free parking.

    The best most friendly professional efficient attentive staff I’ve ever had and the food was delicious and cooked to perfection. It was like having a wait staff of 15 instead of 2. Every employee would glance at out table and check or clear as needed, but in a polite noninvasive way. I cannot wait to go again! They did not rush our party out, but allowed us to truly enjoy each course. Thank you.

    The overall experience was bad. We ordered two appetizers and two entrees. The fried calamari is the best. The pork skewer was too dry and the clams and mussels tasted like they went bad which ruined the cioppino. The short ribs was dry as well. The service was great! We were sitting by the window to have the street view which was also great. Overall, the food tasted unexpectedly bad for the price and we hope people learn from our experience. If you do go, order the fried calamari!

    Wow...what a great dining experience! Our group of 12 showed up an hour early...the staff was able to seat us right away. Our server was the best!!! He offered up great recommendation and was extremely attentive. We couldn't ask for a better server! The drinks were fantastic...cheers to the bartender & staff/m! The food was awesome. We had one person in our group with fish allergies. The chef cooked her meal separately...even made a fish free sauce. We were blown away! I highly, highly recommend the Winery in La Jolla!!!

    What a kind group of people (and yummy food). My fiancé and I went to dinner there the day after he proposed. I was so excited and distracted by my new sparkly ring that I spilled his drink. Before I knew it, everyone swooped in and changed our table cloth and brought a new drink. They were all so thoughtful and forgiving of my blunder and helped make our night special. Thank you!

    We booked through open table for 7 30 and when we got there there was no reservation for our party . We agreed to sit at bar on high stools . I then went back to double check the booking and the hostess couldn’t find it. The whole experience was rather frustrating and irritating as I had guests from South America with us and after the rave recommendations we were frankly quite embarrassed. . The salad was good , the cioppino lacked flavor and was served without a spoon , The salmon was delicious . We had a quick meal in if we were seated comfortably at a table , we would have had a longer more pleasurable dinner ordering more and providing greater revenue for this establishment.
