“Great view & gluten free menu=wonderful combo...”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

Located on hill at Falkner Winery on Calle Cotento in Temecula, this restaurant offers great view of the vineyards. There is a tasting room to prepare for your meal and there is a gluten free menu!
We tried grilled chicken sandwich on their gluten free rice bread which was tasty and the bread was soft,
For dessert we had the molten chocolate cake with gelato and whipped cream (we are not purists about food),,,,This was so delicious I licked the plate! (see attached photos)
Recommended this place to Friends from Oregon who were visiting and they were blown away by the existence of the Tuscany like environment with great food, We will do this again and again as we live in San Diego and it is a day trip for us,,,,YaYYYYYYY!

“Good food with complementary wine”
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”
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.
