I joined with friends for a night out for dinner. I had the venison and it was so flavorful and beautifully plated. We also had the fries with truffle oil which I had not had before. Pretty sure they were gone in under 60 seconds as we devoured them.

Had the pleasure of dining here on Thanksgiving & we were thrilled to be seated promptly, enjoyed the best cocktails and meals!! From the moment we walked in the vibe was pleasant - server was efficient and couldn’t have asked for more ....
Our first time there but definitely won’t be the last!

We went for Thanksgiving dinner at the high top tables. Service was sparse yet the servers and the sommelier were very nice.

I booked the Winery for Thanksgiving dinner. The food was excellent the pre fixed menu had something for everyone. The apps were adequate in size and left you wanting more. With 4 choices in entrees, my guests and I had three. The turkey dinner was fantastic. The scallop and shrimp risotto was perfect and the flatiron steak was cooked perfectly. The food could not have been better and the service was fantastic. We were lucky to get any reservation and sat in the tall bar seating. The bar tender catered to our every need and with such a large section I was more then pleased with her service. I didn’t get her name but she had a cheerful smile and a shoulder length hair cut. Being that it was a holiday she had such an amazing attitude and made our time memorable.

Our server Troy was great as always. We request either Troy or Sky as they are attentive to our needs and very courteous. The food offerings are always broad and excellent quality. Great wine list or bring your own for reasonable corkage. This restaurant never disappoints.

One of my personal pet peeves is with the pace of the meal service. Ordered the meat/cheese board right after seating. Long delay in serving it, but even worse, they served our main course and we had not finished half of the appetizer. This is not acceptable in my opinion. Disappointed, although the food itself was very good.

Didn’t realize we were there for the brunch menu, which was not as good as the diner menu. Beautiful view of the harbor!

We went to The Winery Restaurant on a Tuesday night. The view of bay is lovely, the service and food both good. The only down side was the noise level. There were several large parties and it seemed everyone was seated in a small area with many empty tables. Perhaps if we had been more spread out, it wouldn't have been so troublesome. That being said, we will definitely be back.

Great service and view! Food and presentation were fabulous! My rack of lamb was slightly (VP very tiny bit) overcooked for medium rare. It was tasty so I did not complain.

First off CJ (or CT) our server was the BEST! We did wait for about 25 minutes before we received any water, but they were busy and appeared short staffed. But our server made it worth the wait and as always the food is amazing and the ambiance, as well.

Another great night at the Winery, our favorite place. We brought friends from out of town to show off our favorite restaurant, and overall it was lovely. Just one minor disappointment: we had made the reservation well in advance and asked for a table by the water, but when we arrived were told by the hostess those tables were "reserved"...? Not sure what she meant, but didn't want to complain in front of guests.

For our first time, we were impressed. If you want to sit by the window to see the dock/ bay I recommend you make reservations in advance and request. Though we were able to see the the dock and watched to yachts pull up to there slips the view was still wonderful from where we were. The restaurant also serves the one yacht that pulled in.

The food was amazing. We order oysters on a half shell. Fresh and delicious. Venison and king crab legs.. sorbet and cream brûlée for dessert.. valet parking was reasonable. We decide to try to make it our go too spot we loved it that much.

Troy was our server. Great job!

We were celebrating a new job and our server made sure we had everything we needed.

We ordered the filet mignon and lobster - both were fabulous. We were given a free cheesecake dessert which was amazing.

We love this place and the view is always perfect. This location is one of our all time favorites.
