Service was excellent and food was excellent. Celebrated our anniversary and they made it very special.
We enjoyed the Winery very much. Service was great. The risotto with lobster was very good. It was a very positive experience.
The service staff is excellent. They know their business and work to make you feel welcome. This was our fifth visit to the restaurant and/or bar. Service and food have been excellent every time.
Excellent food and service. The wine sommelier was quite knowledgable and the manager took the time to come by and introduce himself and then to check on us again later in our meal. The Filet Mignon in particular was perfectly cooked and the Bernaise sauce was lovely.
A wonderful meal for our family. Lots of choices and great service. Wine selections are amazing but few choices for less expensive bottles
Of my many visits to The Winery, something is different. The service was AWFUL. We (table of 8) sat for 45 minutes with only water service. Then we waited another 15 minutes for the bread we had to ask for and for someone to open our bottles of wine that we brought for a special occasion. No excuse because the restaurant was not full, many empty tables. The only time we saw our waiter was when he took our order 1 hour into service and when he brought the bill. Something has changed. This is NOT the excellent experience I have had many time with service/food.
Always excellent food and service.
Our reservations were for 7:30 and no one mentioned closing was 9 on Sundays We were few minutes late and were rushed through our meal, only one other table in restaurant. Aside from that our meal and service were very nice.
We went there to celebrate my birthday and it was great! I felt special from the moment we arrived! I loved this place before, now even more! Super HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
Although the food was very good, the service was average. The wait time with a reservation was long, and we didn't get the table we wanted. The noise level was way beyond loud! If you are looking for a party place with good food, fine. But if you are going on a date or business dinner and want to converse, forget it!! You have to shout and talk very loud to be heard by your partner sitting across the table from you. There is no quiet area. All noise reverberates because of the room and ceiling architecture. I would only go back for a noisy girls night out.
Such a wonderful dining experience as always. We frequently visit this amazing restaurant and love the food, service and gorgeous ambiance!
Very disappointing anniversary dinner. Ordered Filet and King Crab legs. The filet was tough and had no flavor. The crab was very small and looked like snow crab. They were dry and tasted old... definitely not fresh. Server seemed overwhelmed and poorly trained. Service was very slow.
$18 dessert comprised of 4 small stale pieces of cake.
Good for a date. Outstanding food and service. Good ambience too
Good date night.

Rreat food and wine
Valentine Day Dinner! Food Entrees were great and service was excellent. The only drawback was the desserts. The red velvet cake was not as moist as we anticipated.
Great meal and great service !!!!!
Great wine selection, delicious food, gorgeous setting, and fun people!
The staff is very accommodating. The place where we were seated was cold and they turned down the thermostat.
Service was good, timely, friendly, informative.
Food is always great.
The restaurant is always clean and beautiful.
I love that they offer a seafood tower here. However, only half of it is any good. The lobster, ahi and shrimp are great. However, crab legs in the tower are terrible. They are the skinny tips of the leg with no meat on them. No taste either. And I ate one oyster in the thing was so filled with shell I spit it out and could not eat any more.
The service here however is fantastic and I love the wine. And the burger was good.
I would return however I would never order the seafood tower again. I would opt for the lobster and shrimp singularly or ala carte
Amazing for going out, the service is just right, the food is delicious, helpful service, my friend ande had a great time 🙂
We like this place and attend it on occasions as a couple or family.
Wonderful experience as usual
The food is very good. We always enjoy our meals. Love the location. Can get a little noisy sometimes.
