Don't bother with the Oysters Rockerfeller, there are no oysters! Everything else was just ho-hum. Really hoping for a nice restaurant in Temecula soon. If it's going to compete with Paso Robles, Santa Ynez, or Napa, for wine tasting, Temecula needs to get better restaurants.

Service good, but food not: salty Mac&cheese, oysters were chopped up pieces, instead of whole (not good). We're locals wishing for good restaurants in Temecula. We've had a good experience in the past, but now disappointed.

We had a lovely lunch here last week! There were 5 of us, and we ate small-plate style and ordered the charcuterie plate, the sea bass, and the macaroni and cheese. All were delicious. And the covered outdoor dining area was delightful! And or course, the wine was fabulous!

We scheduled a tour and tasting at Leoness for 4 PM on Friday and forgot to take into account I-15 traffic... We missed the tour but Gabriel saved the day. A quick tasting (great wine) took off the edge and then we moved over to the restaurant. Caesar was tres magnifique! The sea bass was amazing and the Mac 'N... More

Had lunch at the restaurant on 10/22/16. We had their red blend of cab, Franco, and Merlot. Very smooth and tasty. For appetizer we had oyster Rockefeller which was tasty but for the price the oysters were very small. For the entree I had sea bass $38. It was served over rice with a sauce drizzled on the plate and... More

Great restaurant! Service was good and the food presentation was very nice. Mid week visit allowed plenty of time for casual dining and no hurry to rush us through our meal.

We had wine and we had a win! We flew into San Diego Friday morning. After settling into our motel, we went to check out Temecula for a light snack. Unfortunately, we got there around 3pm and found out most of the wineries took a siesta from 3:30-5pm. The Restaurant at Leoness Winery was serving all afternoon so we stopped... More
