“Good food with complementary wine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

Friendly staff, wide-ranging menu, lovely views and comfortable surroundings. The steak salad is particularly good, together with a glass of their own Syrah. We never felt rushed and will definitely return. On a par with Baily's restaurant and slightly cheaper.

“Great View in the Vineyards”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

We had a lovely lunch at Pinnacle on a very hot day in September. The menu is quite diverse and the food was very good. There are gluten free and vegetarian selections as well. Our server was Tina and she was very attentive to us despite having a large and busy section with some difficult to please patrons. It had been a number of years since we had been back, but we will return soon.

“Great Food and Even Better Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

Located at Faulkner winery with lovely views perched above the local vineyards. The grilled salmon on local greens with a cantaloupe dressing was imaginative and delicious. The highlight was the chef made chocolate ice cream which was simply wonderful. Do not miss it. The warm friendly service from Tina and a visit with Mr.Faulkner made for a memorable and delicious lunch.

“Nice views, average food, high prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013

The views were nice, but the restaurant was trying to be upscale and wasn't. The prices are high and the food was good, but not that good. We would try something else next time.
