Wine list is the best in Orange County both for diversity and value. Both of us got the halibut special and it was 10/10. They have a new singer/guitarist in the bar who is amazing. We didn't leave until Jay was done with his set (10pm on a Saturday). Can't wait to go back.

We had came here to celebrate a special occasion. My little sister finally finished her year long process of chemotherapy.I come here often alone so when I brought her I introduced her to the staff when they greeted me at the table they asked if we were celebrating anything tonight and when we told them they went out of their way to make her feel special. She left there and cried in happiness it’s been so long that she felt such hope that everything is finally going to be okay. With the similarity of the stories that the staff had explain to her with similar situations she left grateful. Our meals were amazing per usual and I couldn’t have picked a better place for her first night back into the world since her diagnosis. Thank you Rachelle and Ilene along with our server and staff for creating an environment filled with hospitality. This restaurant goes above and beyond I highly recommend them for any occasion.

Great window booth - did order an appetizer and drinks, appetizer showed up - drinks didn't come until after we finished the appetizer - disappointing. Short rib was a bit dry, however rib eye steak - cooked perfect and delicious. Server seemed to want to engage in conversation as soon as our food arrived -which seemed a bit odd. Overall good, just not as high end as we were expecting.

The service started out ok but quickly went down hill. It was our first time dining there and probably won’t go back. Our wait person was very nice and knowledgeable. I needed substitutions and was offered many. However, we were then left without anyone checking on us. It took 20 minutes to get more water and wanted bread and sauce for our steak and it took at least 15 minutes to order it! It seems like the expensive restaurant was nickel and dimming it’s customers. Bread was extra and steak sauces were extra.

Overall we had a good experience but the Calamari was a big disappointment. If I read on the menu Fried Calamari, I expect to be rings and tentacles not Calamari steak strips. We ate some and left the rest. Personally, I think that on the menu they should
specify that they are Calamari Steak Strips (but maybe that does not sound fancy enough for them). We mention that to our server and she seemed not interested in listening to our disappointment. That left a sour note with us

This was our second time eating at The Winery. Everything we had was delicious. Calamari best I’ve ever had. Filet mignon cooked perfect to my liking. Great atmosphere, lively but not loud. All in all it was a great experience! Highly recommend.

Great location, good ambiance, steak was dry??? Pretty odd for a $60 steak. Only wine by the glass that you can purchase is American. Not that it’s a big deal but if you call yourself the winery, let’s do a bit more

As always, the Winery didn’t disappoint. Service is top notch, ambience and views are very special and the food and wine were outstanding. This is our “go to” spot for special occasions, but it’s a worthy rotation for any night out. Our server and sommelier were attentive (but not over-bearing) and very helpful. The floor manager came by to check in, which was appreciated. We have never had a bad experience, and last night was no exception.

We had a table by the window, it was an amazing evening, so we were super happy to have the view all evening, we stayed until 10:15..we arrived at 7:15..3 hours at a restaurant is not the normal for us. All the dishes we ordered were delicious, and the 2 bottle of wines, were amazingly good. Our table server was very attentive and very nice. Thank you Winery for a fantastic dinner experience!

This is my go to steak place. They are amazing at their service, food quality and Having their patrons receive their food in a timely manner. The sunflowers and hostesses are exceptional. I commute all the way from Palm Springs that’s how wonderful this place is I highly recommend trying them out for any occasion.

$35 corage fee. Rediculous!

Also, the annoying hip hop sounds coming out of the bar was off putting. This restaurant has class but that just doesn't work.

As you would expect with a name of "Winery", the wine list is impressive. The food is top notch and the service attentive and friendly. The chef's game creations (venison, quail, etc) provide a chance to taste rare dishes that please the palate and are not soon forgotten.
