Always love our time at Ponte! Great staff, great place, yummy wine and good food! We’ve been members for years and plan to stay that way! :)
Just so so. Although it has been highly rated in the past it would not be there present rating. Calamari tasted re-warmed which bummed me out. Brussel sprouts were pretty delicious though. We decided we’d go to other winery restaurants - such as Leoness before going back. The doppietta was also pretty delicious.
Great staff. Nice meal in a beautiful atmosphere.
We always go here when we are in town. Usually things are excellent. Once in awhile you need to wait for a table as they never seem to have enough tables or staff to seat You at your reservation time.
If it was good. However, it took us an hour and 20 minutes from the time we sat down to get our orders. We had a party of five. We were put in the back room and unfortunately the temperature was very cold that night. So we were pretty much frozen as the heaters do not work that well.
Anyway, we will continue to go there however, they did not hit a homerun Saturday night.
The ravioli was fabulous, and the wine excellent. It was a very special evening and the dinner met all our expectations.
It was a wonderful experience and I would eat there again. The service was excellent and the food was delicious!
Great restaurant and winery. It is always a pleasure to come here.
I see the charcutre has changed somewhat, in that it is smaller and the number of selections has gone down from the previous times we have ordered it. Overall it was good and we were pleased.
Best pizza ever. We both ordered pizzas and the crust was amazing I had the mushroom which was delicious and my friend ordered the margarita and she loved it as welll.
we are club members. enjoy wine tasting before dinner.
menu selection is top notch!
The atmosphere at Ponte is the best if your wanting to have an outdoor dining experience.
I gave just 2** because the service was sketchy...we asked twice for more more bread- finally someone else brought it to us. I asked 3 times for salt and pepper for my salad...never did get the Salt and pepper. I ordered the Bolognese and there was very little meat to speak of - short ribs? I think for $26 there should have been more than a tiny sprinkling of meat bits which looked more like ground beef. My friend sent her's back for more meat. The salads were delicious, the Chartucerie was also very good.
Really good wine and food. Would like to visit them again.
Location was great, nice venue, friendly wait staff. Pricing was on par for the food and location. The actual food was not bad, but nothing overly special either.
We have eaten at The Restaurant at Ponte many times and have always had an outstanding experience. The servers are so friendly and knowledgeable. The outdoor setting is beautiful and really pleasant. Somehow they have figured out how not to have a bunch of birds trying to eat your food ... I love birds but not picking at scraps on my table. The food is clearly well sourced and thoughtfully made. This restaurant is one of the reasons I continue to want to come back to Temecula wine country. I strongly recommend you make reservations for any meal here in the weekends. Otherwise you could wait awhile.
Totally enjoyed a leisure lunch. Food, wine, and service were great. Sarah was our server; she did a wonderful job.
The Restaurant at Ponte is a wonderful place to eat. It is a beautiful setting at the winery and the food was delicious. Our server was awesome, great food and great service.
Everything was perfect!
Had a very nice tasting then lunch outside. Service was excellent as always and the food was very good.
arrived at Ponte Inn at 4pm and restaurant closes at 4 but staff were happy to accommodate the 4 of us. Great food, service and seating outside.
Wonderful evening! Dinner was a,amazing, service was good, ambiance was beautiful and music was nice! The perfect evening to celebrate my husband’s birthday!
We live in Temecula and plan to go to Ponte often.
Everything was great!! My meal was messed up but my wife’s was fine. She loved it for a birthday celebration
Beautiful setting, HORRIBLE food.
As usual the Ponte did not disappoint. My friends and I have been going to the Ponte every year for the last few years. We consider the restaurant "our spot". The service and food are impeccable, and the ambiance is lovely this time of year.
I wAnted this to be great but it fell short in so many areas. Cold food, poor service and very hard chairs made for a poor experience. The desert however was excellent
My husband and I took my best friend and her husband to lunch and wine tasting for her Birthday at Ponte. We had the BEST time! Ponte is one of my favorite places in California! It's so beautiful and the food and wine are so delicious! I love bringing friends, family and clients to Ponte!!
Got married here last year, celebrating our one year. Been here a ton and always loved it. This time food wasn’t good (pizza was soggy and sitting in tons of oil, salad was wilted) last time we noticed a difference but thought maybe it was just what we ordered. Hopefully things are working on getting changed bc we notice a difference
They were nice to accommodate our large group on a weekend
One of the most beautiful, relaxing and appealing outdoor venues in the valley. Food is good. Bread is off the chart. Service is great.
The food and wine were great. The vibe in the dining room was positive - like everyone was enjoying themselves. Our server Jackie made our anniversary date memorable by taking an interest in our story.
Highly recommend,service and food-wonderful! Beautiful location viewing the vineyard
Birthday lunch with my wife and kids. We are members and love the winery’s restaurant. A delicious and unique menu with great food and great wine. Great for any time you want a extra nice meal out.
Excellent location for a nice lunch at a winery. Beautiful view and lovely to sit outside. I don't exactly expect great food at a winery but I have to say it was very good and so fresh. We will go back. Vickie was a great server! And the wine is good, too.
For us, ponti is the best restaurant in the Temecula area.
The atmosphere of the restaurant is absolutely stunning. The issues we had was that the wait staff was not very attentive when it came to refilling glasses and a general overall sense of service. Multiple wine glasses were broken.
I had the meat loaf sandwich and even though it was bacon wrapped, the power of the smoke flavor was completely overpowering.
A good, not great experience.
The food was amazing, the wine was amazing, and the service was top notch. This is definitely a favorite lunch spot.
Really great food and a good scenery.
Everything was great! The service, and wine tasting before was great! Twenty five dollars each for wine tasting is expensive, but we did it anyway. The food was great! But the chicken wrap was a little spicy!!!! All in all, the restaurant is a really nice wine country lunch!
Food and service were good. I was looking for better views of the city. I thought this winery was on a hill top. I would come back, however after I visit several others.
My wife and I have been celebrating our anniversary every year at The Restaurant at Ponte for at least 8 years (we’ve lost count)! The food is always exquisite and the service unmatched. It is by far our favorite restaurant!
