Enjoyed a wonderful lunch with family from Italy this past weekend, food and wine was outstanding, service was good, it was a busy Saturday at the vineyard, but the staff kept up!

One of the best cheese plates ever experienced. Plus the sand dabs fish was fantastic too, light and flaky. The wine flight was mediocre, we're spoiled in wine country. The service was good and view great. The complimentary bread was outstanding.

The service was really bad. Had to wait many times to ask for drinks, bread... for this type of prices, they should provide much better services to clients.

I had the shrimp and chorizo and it was delicious. Polenta was very tasty and a nice accompaniment . I think overall, a little overpriced but the service and view were fantastic!

We have been to Ponte several times and each visit has been excellent. From the service to the food and of course the wine. Plus, you can't beat the atmosphere and location.

One of my favorite restaurants in Temecula. Great food and beautiful surroundings. As a wine club member they also give priority seating.

First, I will say that Ponte wines are excellent (some of the best in Temecula) and you cannot go wrong with them. As far as the restaurant goes, I have eaten there twice. The first time the food was excellent and the wait staff was...More
