Service was fine. Hostess was slow and seemed disorganized. Not happy that reservation was made through Open Table to learn that they don’t accept points.
Always a pleasure stopping by Ponte for a delicious bite to eat and amazing wine!
The food is really good. The environment is very relaxing. Service is superb. Ruby, our server, was very friendly and attentive. We order the mussel tomato broth, lobster pasta, farmer salad and the Bacon and Clam Pizza. All very tasty. But the pizza trumped all. My wife was so impressed that she wanted to come again as soon as possible. Thank you Ponte.
Mother's Day with my teenage sons...perfect way to celebrate. We arrived early for our reservation and were seated immediately. We only just ordered our beverages when the staff changed due to break time. Both servers were lovely. The support staff were a bit busy and we had some delay with refills, etc. The food was fabulous and the view and ambiance were thoroughly enjoyable. The one downside was that after enjoying our after lunch coffee we got up to take pictures in the gardens just in time to see them all cordoned off for a private function. We had to stand on the sidewalk and try to block the signs with our backs in order to get family photos with the flowers in the background. Maybe someone could have politely gone around the tables to give advance notice. We could have done our photos during meal prep. This was the only 'glitch' to an otherwise perfect day.
We had a very BAD experience at this visit. We waited over an hour for our food to come, which was only burgers and one salad. We asked our server many times when would our food be coming out. She said she would check on it, but never got back to us. After a full hour we asked to speak to a manager. The manager came over and we still had to wait another 10 min. So it was an hour and ten minutes before we received our food. When the food arrived our orders were not even correct. The food was cold and it was hardly edible. The manager offered to make new food but we were out of time and needed to return to work. The worst part was one of our guest found a hair on her plate. We were so disappointed with the food and service that we didn't eat and just left. The most unfortunate thing was that we were there to celebrate a special occasion.
My second visit to Ponte. Loved it again. Beautiful setting. Outstanding service. Delicious food. Thank you so much. I’ll be back next time I’m in town.
The wine at Ponte is great. We enjoyed a nice meal. There was live music and we were sat right next to it. The music was good but too loud for a conversation.
The restaurant was really great. The ambiance was very relaxed. It felt like your eating at some place out in the hills of Italy.
We enjoyed our experience at Ponte! The live music was a great addition to the ambiance! The service was excellent! My only complaint is we felt the food prices were over the top for what we got, considering everything is a la carte.
Food delicious, wine refreshing, a beautiful outdoor setting great service from Reece twice. Same menu lunch and dinner but varied choices. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.
We had a delicious lunch in the lovely outdoor patio of the Ponte Winery. The waitstaff was very attentive yet not overpowering. We are looking forward to returning.
Ponte always delivers. From the absolute best wine around to there insanely amazing food. I had the chicken and it was incredible.
The outside setting has a beautiful view of the vineyard.
Always a pleasure to have a meal at Ponte. Great food and service and the views of the vines are fabulous.
Easy check in with reservation from Open Table. Nice seating. Cheese tray was amazing and so were their wines.
The filet was the worst filet I’ve ever had. It should not even be labeled as filet. Such a waste of money.
Great place and great food. Wonderful experience!!
Menu was new and some dishes were not good. Service was outstanding.
ALWAYS a staple to come to when I’m in Temecula. From the sweet hostess to the wonderful serving staff to the deliciousness of the food. It’s an A+ in my book :)
Food and service were great, we were late but they still accommodated our reservation.
Busy Friday evening with lots of folks and a nearby wedding event, but still enjoyed the scenery and ambiance. Most of the 5 people at our table loved their meals, the appetizers, mussels and calamari, were excellent and the main courses, margarita pizza, farmers salad and scallops were very good. The seafood paea however, was too salty and the lobster pasta was not as good. Our dessert, cheesecake and raspberry brûlée, were delicious. Best part of the restaurant was the service. Our waiter Kyle was outstanding, personable, charming, funny and professional. Would definitely recommend others to enjoy this lovely restaurant.
Great food! Great Service! Beautiful landscape and scenery. We had a wonderful time.
Food is always soo good. Service was just okay. Our server wasn’t very attentive she had 5 tables but it was if we were present. I dine at ponte often the worst service I’ve ever received.
The food was very good. We ordered antipasto (which was excellent and the portion was really big) and calamari (which was very good, but if I really want to nitpick it was a tiny bit chewy). They also serve bread with olive oil and balsamic which is fantastic. I will definitely go back
I have wanted to try this restaurant for months. It was superb. My hubby had the Filet and I the Duck. Since I'm Gluten/Soy Intolerant, this place was wonderful. My meal was delicious, the services was nice and quick.
Food is great, service is outstanding and the ambiance is chill!
Get together with out of town friends
Great food and ambiance
We have eaten in a number of five star restaurants in NYC. Frankly our lunch at Ponte yesterday was as good as any we have in NYC and at a much better price. Recommend making reservations and on the weekend try to get there when they open at 11am.
Great atmosphere, food, and Service.
In my book it was pricey, but maybe
$200 for lunch for 3 is not to some.
Excellent meals... can be a little pricey but you certainly get the quality for what you’re paying for.
Staff is friendly and attentive.
I recommend making reservations during spring and summer. It can be pretty busy.
I love Ponte’ and I love the Restaurant at Ponte’. Everyone is so friendly and being a Member, I feel right at home. I had the chicken and it was delicious. My husband had the bacon burger and he couldn’t eat it all. My cousin had the salmon and she at every bite. I was so happy the weather was perfect as we celebrated my cousin’s birthday and our 36th wedding anniversary. It was a great day!
The outdoor seating was nice. I would dine there again.
Wonderful meal with friends and family. Food was outstanding and our service was spectacular! We will return for certain. We all had a good meal and a great time. Thanks to everyone at The Restaurant at Ponte.
It would be appreciated that you are welcomed with a smile when checking in. It was a put down when the other hostess suggested to the other that "That's for reservations only" when indeed we have a reservation. That hostess didn't even bother to ask. No smile. No apologies offered. She almost made me lose my appetite and patience. Needs retraining please.
Service was great. Food was excellent. A lovely evening with live music. We’ll be back.
Everything was amazing. Food was a little on the expensive side BUT is was SO good. The musician was very good and set the mood. Service was perfect. I can’t wait to go back!
