This restaurant REALLY needs a makeover. The moment you walk in you can smell the old filthy ripped up carpet. The tables are sticky so are the salt/pepper shakers etc! Everything needs to be cleaned. I can only imagine what the kitchen looks like. Went...More

Give it a try and see if you like it. I found service to be poor and food that wasn't anywhere near my expectations. Staff was busy chatting with each other, but friendly. Had to wait a long time for food.

Penfold's has agood-but-not-exceptional fine-dining menu. It is pretty, and eating on the balcony affords a lovely view of Old Town Temecula. However, we have always felt the prices were inflated beyond the relative value of the meal.

Used to be one of the best. Fresh prepared food, quality ingredients, prompt service. Last 2 meals there were cold and tasted like they had merely been thrown together in haste. When I commented the manager got snarky. Avoid.
