TOO BAD THIS RESTAURANT CLOSED ITS DOORS ON SAT. 21, OCTOBER. WE LOVED THE HIGH END STEAK CUTS.
Thanks for the fine dinners over the years ... your restaurant will be sorely missed.
Our first visit and we really enjoyed our dinner! Too bad the Steakhouse is closing this Saturday after the many years in Murrieta. We wish the owner and staff much success in their next endeavor.
I went on line to see the menu for dinner. My husband was looking for prime rib. We have never been to Vail so I was excited to go. The price rating was $ but it should have been $$. It was much more expensive than what was advertised.
We will go back again but only for a really special dinner.
We spent 1 1/2 hours there but mostly waiting for our drinks, salads and dinner. The waitress gave us two free desserts for wasting our time.
Sadly, the best steakhouse in the area, Vail Ranch, is closing.
The steaks, beverages, sides, deserts and after dinner drinks are great, as they have always been. The last day of service is 10/22. So sad to see the best place in Temecula, Murrieta and Elsinore for steaks is closing. : (
Go while you can for your 'last supper'. Ask for Carmel as your server. She has always been so awesome.
We have always had a great experience at Vail Ranch Steakhouse. Both the steak and the fish were done to perfection. We will miss them.
We will miss Vail Ranch Steak House as they are closing this month. The food and service have always been excellent. Best wishes and good luck . And thanks for the wonderful experiences
The aged ribeye was a delicious, generous portion. Side dishes were tasty, the baked was generous and the grilled vegetables were crisp and tasty. The was moist and flakey. Waitress was very attentive.
Our server and the 4 meals were excellent although it took a long time to get our food despite it not being very busy at our 5:30 reservation on a Friday
The food and service were both great. Steaks cooked to perfection. Prices are very competitive in comparison to other steakhouses. I wouldn't say as high end as Ruth Chris or Morton's but definitely higher end and much better quality than places like Black Angus or Outback.
The food, including the vegetables, was excellent. We did ask to be moved to a quieter table because the piano was to loud. Because it is pricey, I will save this for a special occasion.
We were disappointed . . . we have been there many times for special occasions etc. and always had good food. That is why I decided to take my husband for his 7 nd birthday. He ordered the 12 oz filet and it was very average and in fact he complained it had no taste whatsoever. Mine was Ok but I have had better at Black Angus. We expect better from the Vail Ranch. The waitress was very good though.
You Guys Are Spamming Me To dealt.
I will never, ever come back.
The steaks were very good. We had the ribeye and the prime rib special which is great value on Monday nights. The wine selection is good and I also recommend the fried calamari. There was a live piano player during dinner which was very pleasant.
Dinner was ok, but nothing special. The prime rib was over seasoned and had some issues with their beers.
Was disappointed this time. Bone-in ribeye was actually not very good at all, even though cooked to order. The meat just tasted...worn out and old. Service was decent until they forgot to bring back our leftovers to take home. Music was annoyingly loud. Rather than soft background, it was more like a concert and got in the way of conversation, even though we were about as far away as one can get. It's a shame, but the place seems to be going downhill with each successive visit. We've been here many times for special occasions, but I think we'll be looking elsewhere from now on.
This was our 1st time to Vail Ranch Steakhouse. The waitress helped with suggestions and the food was incredible. The $10 add-on lobster tail Tuesday was a great bonus.
Our table was very well situated that it allowed intimate conversation . The live music was appropriate for a couple dining out . Our waiter was outstanding and made our dining experience memorable. The food was excellent too!! I ordered the Chilean Seabass and it was to die for! We will definitely be back here.
First visit for our family. High quality food. Prices slightly high, but was a very good meal. Not typical of your standard steak place. Been in Temecula for 9 yrs now. Wish we would of came in sooner.
The steak had good flavor but the lobster seemed under cooked. They were out of baked potatoes and the New York strip that came with that combo special. Instead of giving me the slightly larger strip for the same price as advertised they charged me more. It wasn't my fault they were out of the smaller strip and baked potatoes. Drinks were also delayed. Not even close to being worth the money.
We had a very good dinner and our server Steven make my Mother's 88th Birthday a GREAT one!
Steven is a great server and took care of our special requests and needs...he s a keeper!
DRY AGED STEAK WAS SCRAPPY & OVER PRICED FOR THE CUT I RECEIVED. THE SERVER LIKENED THE LESSER PRICED STEAKS TO WHAT YOU BUY FROM THE GROCERY STORES...THE LAMB COULD NOT BE CUT WITH THE KNIFE WIFE WAS GIVEN. SERRATED KNIFE HELPED THE UNDER-COOKED MEAT. FURTHER COOKING AT HOME DID IMPROVE TENDERNESS. GRILLED VEGGIES WERE TOUGH AND UNDER COOKED SO I DECLINED THE OFFER TO BOX THEM UP TO TAKE HOME. WE HAD A SIMILAR DINNER AT BLACK ANGUS A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO THAT WAS EXCELLENT IN EVERY WAY AND IT WAS 35% LESS EXPENSIVE!
Best steak so far in the Temecula-Murrieta area. Great experience.
Food was very good and a good value However, even though they have remodeled it still feels dated.
This is the second time going with the same waiter and it was great service and food both times. Every time we are in town we plan on going.
I took my husband here for his 61st birthday. Had a great meal. I eat very little, so could downsize my meal - and we had a lovely choice of wines.
My husband and I had our second trip here this evening. Again, service, food, and staff didn't let us down! This place is wonderful; from the moment you walk in. Everyone is so nice. The food was amazing! Ordered the clam chowder not realizing it had bacon (I can't eat pork), the took it off no questions. Our water glasses never got empty as a waiter continually filled them, which to me was a little strange not used to that type of service.
It was a tired and rather old steak house. There were very few people and the food and service was mediocre. It was food but nothing special
So so food, Steak best bet. Sea Bass fair, music too loud too close to dining. Pricey$$
I truly enjoyed the medium rare steak,however, it was my husband's birthday and he should have ordered his well done. The waitress tried her best to make our eating experience a good one and for the most part she did. Overall, the food is good as well as the ambiance with a piano bar player and beautiful romantic songs to listen to. Definitely great steaks and home made fries to die for.
Ordered prime rib baked potato and red wine. You ran out of both prime rib and baked potatoes. How does that happen in a high end steakhouse?? Wine took 20 min to arrive at table. It started out frustrating and turned laughable. Almost as is you never wanted us to come back.
poor service, sea bass was great prime rib not good
The filet I ordered was dry as a bone . The crab was not fresh at all. Our calimari was super greasy. The best thin
This is the second year we go with another couple to celebrate our 50th and this year 51st wedding anniversary.
The piano player is excellent, the waitress very professional and helpful, good food, and a genuine "adult" place to enjoy all of the above without children running around or fussing.
Had a great time. Thank you.
for the price, not really worth it. the food was good, steaks were prepared well.. I just wasn't seeing the value. I've spent less for better.
Food was OK, but the noise was extremely high. The service was overbearing and interruptive to our dinner. Many jokes, constantly coming back to talk. Felt rushed.
We celebrated our 37th anniversary here because of the good experiences we have had in the past. We had the seared ahi, and the pork chop entree's. Both were just plain deliciouse. The ahi was very well prepared. The service was friendly and knowledgeable, and right there when needed, without intruding. Our server made excellent suggestions for pairing wines with our entree's. It has a casually elegant ambience, with a live piano in the background that creates a relaxing comfortable experience.
It initially took a great deal of time to be waited upon (10 min)
Bread was hard and stale and was uneatable. Second set of bread was perfect. Entrées came out a bit later and were delicious. Wine recommend was good. Overall a B + rating for a Sunday. I would come back.
Came here for my birthday. Sat in the bar and asked about ordering off the happy hour menu as we missed it by five minutes. Our server was very nice and made and exception for us. Had the prime rib sliders, asparagus, mac n cheese, onion rings, burger. Everything was delicious and arrived hot.
Our server made my birthday dinner special. Will return again.
Food was OK. Broccoli was bland and had long stems which was not appelling. Prime rib was not over exciting and was not very flavorful. We were disappointed as we have been there in the past and the food was great. Maybe a bad chef night. Waitress messed up the order.
