I was meeting up with a friend I haven’t seen in years. The server was very patient and polite, never rushing us yet always making sure he was available. The food was delicious and presentation was excellent. The ambiance was perfect. Overall, I was very satisfied and glad to have chosen this restaurant.

As usual food was excellent, service was slow - entire upstairs was closed due a private event so perhaps that slowed things down. Unfortunately noise level was very high so our conversation had to be ramped up also.

We really enjoyed our time at The Winery. Really nice environment, great menu and excellent food preparation. The martinis were perfectly made, the filet, short rib and cauliflower steak were terrific. But, what truly made the evening exceptional was the service provided by Nikki! She is professional, knowledgeable and friendly. I'm not sure our evening could have been better with anyone else. Nikki made the evening special and I will ask for her every time I return to The Winery!!

It’s a beautiful restaurant! It’s a great place to bring a date or a friend. The staff was great and very welcoming. Our waitress was a sweetheart and she was very knowledgeable about the menu offers. The food was delicious and super flavorful. We ordered appetizers which was oysters and calamari. The main entree I had the salmon and my husband had the rib eye. We both loved and enjoyed our dishes! I would definitely be coming back.

Late Valentines Day celebration. We ordered crab & shrimp cocktail and Winery salad, then shrimp & scallops entrees. Cocktail was good, salad just OK with smoky flavor to the dijon mustard advertised dressing. Entrees were OK, just not special for this 5 star restaurant. Nice surprise to be treated with a creme brûlée desert for our celebration. View is nice but maybe ordered wrong things. Previous visit was better. Suggest the seafood tower.

Pretty expensive but a great atmosphere. Had 2 lemon drop martinis at the bar before dinner for almost $40.00. Had a 1/2 bottle of wine with dinner and total tab before tip was $185.00.
Sat at a window table with view of the bay--priceless!

We visited this place while staying in Newport for a party. We used to come here many years ago when it was the Billa Nova and had always loved the views and bar. They have remodeled and it’s gorgeous. Great service and good food. Spectacular liar wine list. Had Rach of Lamb oysters Lobster Bidque and asparagus. We’ll be back again!

It was supposed to be a quiet, romantic Valentine’s Day evening and it was quite loud and conveyor belt-ish, and we felt a pretty rushed despite it being a late reservation.

Although the atmosphere was great, I was not impressed with the food at all. We came for dinner on Valentines Day, and the food just seemed very basic for the money you spend. The only thing I enjoyed eating was the soup - lobster bisque. I had the grilled shrimp and steak. Meat did not have flavor, the shrimp was overly grilled and was dry. The dessert after was again uninteresting and very basic. I was quite disappointed because I recently ate at the La Jolla location and loved the food. Unfortunately, it was the complete opposite at this location.

I highly recommend this wonderful restaurant to anyone who really wants to celebrate! The waitress was so sweet, bubbly, and KNOWLEDGEABLE! The blue point oysters, house salad, and entree of scallops with white shrimp served over risotto was OUTSTANDING!!!! Their wine list is what you would expect!!! Too many to choose from! I think this restaurant might be my new favorites place to “live it up”!
