The three partners strive to deliver the best dining experience In Orange County on a nightly basis. Chef Goetz, whose accolades include the AAA Five Diamond Award and multiple Chef of the Year honors, describes his menu at The Winery Restaurant as wine country-driven a perfect match for a wine program that features a list with 650 selections that change weekly and climate-controlled cellars, which can house up to 7,500 bottles!

    Wow...what a great dining experience! Our group of 12 showed up an hour early...the staff was able to seat us right away. Our server was the best!!! He offered up great recommendation and was extremely attentive. We couldn't ask for a better server! The drinks were fantastic...cheers to the bartender & staff/m! The food was awesome. We had one person in our group with fish allergies. The chef cooked her meal separately...even made a fish free sauce. We were blown away! I highly, highly recommend the Winery in La Jolla!!!

    What a kind group of people (and yummy food). My fiancé and I went to dinner there the day after he proposed. I was so excited and distracted by my new sparkly ring that I spilled his drink. Before I knew it, everyone swooped in and changed our table cloth and brought a new drink. They were all so thoughtful and forgiving of my blunder and helped make our night special. Thank you!

    We booked through open table for 7 30 and when we got there there was no reservation for our party . We agreed to sit at bar on high stools . I then went back to double check the booking and the hostess couldn’t find it. The whole experience was rather frustrating and irritating as I had guests from South America with us and after the rave recommendations we were frankly quite embarrassed. . The salad was good , the cioppino lacked flavor and was served without a spoon , The salmon was delicious . We had a quick meal in if we were seated comfortably at a table , we would have had a longer more pleasurable dinner ordering more and providing greater revenue for this establishment.

    Three of us chose very different entrees and were more than happy. The wagyu burger was a savory meal that didn't need sides, the scallops were perfect for my mom's smaller appetite (my husband said they were cooked to perfection), and his fresh catch of the day was very nicely prepared. If you like asparagus, the parmesan asparagus fries are delightful.

    Food was a lot to be desired. I had scallops and risotto, and it tasted like they dumped a box of salt into the risotto. I love salt, and I thought it was way too salty. That also wrecked my palate, and couldn't enjoy the bottle of wine. We also ordered the seafood tower, and the seafood tasted like they had just thawed it out, and really had no flavor. The service was good. The server was attentive. I wouldn't go back.

    The Winery was wonderful! This was a repeat visit after brunch on Easter Sunday. With friends, we enjoyed the stellar service from staff, the tasty food (great calamari appetizer and salmon with quinoa. . .my partner liked his bison), and the open, chic atmosphere. Also, pre-dinner, we had some of the best Kir Royales ever! We have recommended The Winery to many people and will continue to do so!

    Reserved a table for 7 people for my graduation and I am beyond impressed with how fast we were seated and accommodated. I say this again, I love coming here not just because of the food and drinks, but for their customer service. There is not one waiter and waitress that always makes us feel taken care of. I’m usually at the bar with my friends but this time we tried the restaurant part and I would want to come back again! Thank you La Jolla team!

    We did the Mother’s Day pre fix menu and the food was all excellent. But not really worth $65 a person in my opinion. And the kid’s menu definitely was way overpriced at $26 each for a plate of simple pasta and ice cream. But the quality, presentation and taste of the food was all outstanding. We will definitely go back again, just not for a pre fix menu.

    We had made a reservation picking the standard menu, not the Mother’s Day brunch. However, that was the only option we were allowed which was disappointing as it was similar food to what we normally order, but an extra $15-20 per person (not counting tax/tip) with no added benefit other than it being on Mother’s Day. Why was the option to pick a standard menu available on Open Table when it was not available. Feels a little like a bait and switch to take advantage of people on a holiday that not all are able to celebrate on for various reasons.

    We have dined here many times and been very happy with our food and experience, but Mother’s Day was a big disappointment. While service was fine (given a holiday), the food was mostly mediocre and some was down right awful. For the price of a fixed menu, I was very shocked to find that all the seafood was fishy (avoided eating because of fears of getting sick). Overall, we appreciated the ambience and a nice place to gather with a larger group, but can’t say it was worth it for the food.

    Our dining experience was fantastic! Our server was very polite and attentive, the Sommelier came to make a recommendation on the wine that will suit our taste and perfectly pair with our dishes, not only did we enjoy talking with him but really thought his wine suggestions was outstanding. We celebrated my husband's birthday, it was truly memorable! My husband had the Venison, one of his favorite dishes.
