This place is well worth the slightly pricier cost. The view and ambience is amazing. The service goes above and beyond. You leave this place feeling like you've been to the best of the best.

All top notch. Great selection of red wines and vodkas. Flaming skirt steak was perfectly done and delicious. Mud pie was also amazing.

We visit this place every so often, but this time just was different. First the hostess offered us a large table so I could elevate my foot, and then we had RICHARD that took care of us, the right words would be, we felt pampered ! Thank you Richard!

Unfortunately they did not honor our preference in Open Table to have a window seating. We were put in the back. Vintana needs to redeem themselves to us before we return.

Vintana has gone downhill over the years. The service was slow, the food was mediocre, and the staff seemed disinterested.

We went for brunch, and had a wonderful time. Our server, Jillian, was personable and on point with her table visits. We never had a "...but wait..." moment. You know when the server does a drive by, but doesn't actually ask if you need anything? Nope. Not from Jillian. She was attentive, but gave us space to catch up with one another. Perfect! The food was delicious! We tried the lobster grilled cheese (the hint of lemon in the mascarpone was perfect), crab hash, pork belly benedict, and chicken salad with togarashi pecans. We left full and very happy. Plus: bottomless mimosas!

We really loved the look of the restaurant, and it was also a bit of fun that it was situated on top of a car dealership. While the food was decent, I have definitely ate better food at Cohen Group Restaurants, so that was a bit of a shock.

Took out of town guests and they were amazed by the location over the Lexus dealer. The food was wonderful and if you get the correct table, the view of the mountains us very nice. The salmon salad for lunch is always excellent. The waiter was very friendly and helpful in making food choices.

The hostess deleted our reservation and after 20 min of waiting and speaking up we were seated. Everyone else who came in was seated right away. Not a good first visit and won’t be returning.

The food and service were excellent. I noticed that the diners were spread throughout the facility, thus keeping the noise level down. I really appreciated that, since I usually have a hard time hearing my dinner partner. It was a very enjoyable evening. Thank you!

First off we are foodies; we take our dining experiences seriously and have visited many San Diego restaurant venues. "Vintana's" is fine dining done right. Attentive, friendly knowledge staff; good open air type dinning room, high vaulted ceilings with an open fire pit area. Great culinary choices, with an extensive wine, vodka and other spirits menu. Upscale but not unreasonably priced. Pleasant atmosphere with panoramic views. Highly recommend for all occasions, specially when you want to "try something new".

Unusual location but it works!! The is on top of the Lexus Dealership in Escondido which seems like it would not work. But it is great. It is a great atmosphere with wonderful food selection. It has a large lively bar area and out door patio. You are not just looking at beautiful new cars but also the hills and mountains of East County.

Food is great at a very reasonable price. Waiters are accomodating and not hovering, unlike other fine dining restaurants. Will surely comeback and recommend to friends.

The service was superb, service person made suggestions and welcomed our questions.Substitutes were ok.
My only suggestion would be to advise there are the red hot peppers in the Calamari.

We had drinks in the open-air patio area. No wait staff for this. You had to get your own drinks. Waiting 5-10 minutes at the front of the line at the bar dampened the experience.

Once inside the restaurant, everything was great. Service, food and ambiance were superb. The inside service made us change our rating from a 3 star to a 4 star evening.
