Had a great experience. We ordered the lavender chicken, short rib, pasta and salmon. Chicken and short rib could have used a little more seasoning. Sam our server was really nice, but wasn’t as knowledgeable about all of the wines. She was very attentive and had good suggestions. The owner stopped by to chat and was very personable. Would definitely go again when visiting the area.

The Winery is quickly becoming one of our "go to" places. Our son bought a new home around the corner and whether we are grabbing a wonderful glass of wine and a snack or having a wonderful meal, the restaurant is perfect. Their handling of the Covid crisis was on point. Would recommend The Winery highly.

I cannot say enough about the food &staff (Alexis & Kelly thank you again) at this restaurant. Ihave been battling getting all of my sense of smell and taste back since contracting Covid-19 back in December and every item we had i was able to really taste and enjoy immensely. The Harrisa Brazed Lamb Shank was extraordinary and I highly recommend to anyone trying to redevelope their senses back to normal. The duck was great as well

During this pandemic, it was nice to get out and enjoy a meal. First time here which did not disappoint. We came for a nice little dinner for a birthday. The restaurant was nice and accommodating for our dinner. Tables were spaced out which was nice. Just like everywhere, mask is required when entering and when waking through, ie restroom and so on. Staff was amazing. Very attentive and so patience and friendly.

The meal was great. Everything was amazing and of full of flavor. Amazing list of cocktails and wine on the menu to go with your meal

Kelly took amazing care of us on our first date night in over a year! She walked us through the delicious menu step by step and made great recommendations based on the questions she asked. Oysters and heirloom tomatoes to start (both fantastic), followed by a delicious split house salad, and finally the grilled shrimp over scallops and the braised short ribs. Both dishes were served with imaginative and excellent sides. The short ribs were far and away the best we’ve ever had- savory, fork tender and perfect temperature- still pink on the inside. Magnificent! Kelly paired each course with the perfect glass of wine, ending with a phenomenal tawny port (30year!) and a creme brûlée. William, the manger and sommelier, stopped by our table multiple times to graciously check on us and chat, and all the staff were friendly and eager to make sure we wanted for nothing. It was the perfect night out!

We went for OC restaurant week but ended up ordering off the regular menu. We ordered the charcuterie board as a starter and almost got too full to order more. There were four of us in our party and we all loved it. David our server was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. The food was fantastic and we would go back again.

We were seated immediately when we arrived at our reservation time. Service was prompt and courteous. The food was very good. The only element really not in the excellent category was the noise level. It was moderate, but when spending almost $200 dining, we expect a more subdued noise level. This is a place probably most enjoyed by the younger crowd who don't mind the TV sets back of the bar or hearing the conversations of those around them. All in all, it was a good experience.

Sat on the patio and appreciated the partitions and distanced table arrangements.

The food was amazing as always. Ordered the venison special while others took advantage of the OC Restaurant Week Prix Fixe menu. All enjoyed the food and time at this place. The staff was friendly and helpful with suggestions on wine.

I have very fond memories of going to the winery shortly after it opened years ago. The service, food, and ambience used to be the best in Tustin and rivaled some of the best restaurants in orange county.

A couple of the appetizers were good, but none of the main dishes were worth writing home about. The menu has been substantially pared down as many restaurants have done, and both the service levels and ambience have suffered as well.

I am torn in writing this review, because I know restaurants are struggling so much during Covid. But when you want to charge me $50 for a steak, it doesn’t really matter if you are suffering or not… It better be a five-star experience. Sadly, this was not.

My boyfriend and I had a great time at the restaurant on Friday night. The service was great and even with COVID precautions we still had a great dinner. The only thing I would say is they should update online what the menu will be so you know in advance. I thought I was going to order one thing and when we got there it wasn’t on the menu anymore.
