Four of us ordered at the same time. Two were served, but the others had to wait about 15 minutes for their food. No explanation, no apology, no acknowledgement. It’s obvious they only care if you pay the check. Never going there again.

Yeah, ok but way too expensive for the quality. $8 valet parking or park in the dirt. COME ON! The Temecula thing has gotten out of hand. Most of the wines in the valley are not worth it.

Since most wineries in Temecula close door between 17-18:00, we chose to stay in the wine country as opposed to going back to the coast. It was an excellent idea. We have just finished a wine tasting in the winery hosting the restaurant and found...More

The restaurant has had a major upgrade, making it more than what I want when I go wine tasting. Leonesse has made a major upgrade to the entire winery, making it less appealing to casual wine tasters having lunch at a winery. We had the...More

Lunch in the dining room was beautiful, service was excellent, food was tasty but quite pricy. Views were amazing. Very relaxed.

Was very disappointed with the food quality. Kobe beef appetizer was loaded with fat and soy sauce. Price was $ 25.00. Service was excellent. The chicken dish was very good as was the scallops. No wine for lunch. With tip & tax it was $100.00....More

Nice setting, beautiful Decor, tasty food, but overpriced. The side of french fries was $13, the $19 tortellini entree only had five or six tortellini. They were delicious, but certainly an appetizer size. (The restaurant lists these as entrees, not small plates.) My "Caesar salad"...More

My wife and I have eaten at the “old” Leoness many times. The food was good, a little over-priced but that is a common problem in Temecula. It was always worth coming for the fries though, which were delicious. We decided to go out of...More

Being locals, we've been wanting to try it out since their extensive remodel. What a disappointment; (1)worst Caesars salad EVER, (2)lamb tortellini that smelled like fish. Patio views only for club members, which used to be so homey; however, restaurant patrons get to view a...More

Who knows? They are normally open on the weekends only. Saturday unitl 8:30 pm. Nothing on their website about holiday hours. I guess you can phone them and leave a message for their restaurant, and someone will call you... More
