Cafe Champagne Restaurant - Thornton Winery
We enjoyed an excellent lunch in a very scenic setting. The service was the best.
Not impressive. The food was mediocre.I had the lobster panini. Definitely a frozen and thaw thing. Our server kept disappearing and we constantly had to call a bus boy to find her. Way better restaurants at other wineries.
The food selection I liked since they do offer gluten free options (important for my health restriction). The Cedar Pink Wild Salmon was excellent in taste, with veggies and risotto (gluten free!), ordered the Cafe Champagne Mixed green salad (it was a so good), appropriate food portions. And a Bacon cheeseburger on a gluten free bun! We got to sit inside the restaurant with a view looking out towards the vineyard (social distancing was nice), the waitress was very friendly and helpful with my food choices. Extremely clean and well organized. Made an online reservation, we got there early and we were seated immediately. Great service, in a beautiful location perfect date night with my husband. We are Definitely coming back.
We went with a party of 4 and were seated pretty quickly. We ordered a few appetizers and our bread came out quickly; it took a while for our food to come out and the waiter said the kitchen was backed up for some reason and they comped our calamari. The lobster panini's were great! We also got one of the chocolate flights and were very satisfied with it. Other than the kitchen slow down the staff was very attentive to our needs and making sure we were taken care of promptly. Will definitely be coming back.
The food that we actually received was good - the house salad. the problem with our visit was that our entree never arrived. After waiting an hour after our salad had been served, we inquired as to status and were told oh it’s coming up soon. Another 10 minutes passed and we simply cancelled the remainder of our order, paid and left. Mistakes happen but there were no apologies and the server never even checked in with us to see if we wanted more beverages or water while we were waiting an hour plus.
The food was too greasy for my taste but the service was great.
I’m sorry this place is terrible. Literally like eating frozen Costco food. Service hi s terrible. No one knows what’s going on. Don’t waste you money on this over priced place.
I had an amazing birthday celebration thank you for accommodating my entire group. Dinner was amazing!!!!
Atmosphere and service were great would recommend to others.
Brooke was an excellent server! The ambience was great on the patio with all the lights. Inger is a great manager. We really had a great time!
Obviously it’s very difficult to have the same level of service as pre-pandemic. The social distancing was good, the majority of the wait staff was wearing their masks appropriately. While our waitress was good and offered up suggestions she didn’t wear her mask below their nose which as I understand it is not appropriate. That would be my only complaint regarding her. The noise level was very high as they were large groups that were in the restaurant area and It made it difficult to hear each other in what we thought was going to be a quiet dinner. All in all I definitely will go back again I love Thornton wines especially the Chardonnay
The food was good. Be sure you have a reservation or you’ll have a very long dinner wait
Just because date planned by the hubby. It was calm, relaxing, and had good food. Taste tested 2 wine flights with a salad then ordered dinner. Took our time and enjoyed each other’s company.
Great food, wine, ambiance. Fantastic service especially for a large group.
We had a wonderful time. The food and atmosphere were great.
Great food and staff is amazing.. Great atmosphere.. Our go to place..
The venue was beautiful. We had a reservation and we taken to our table right away. Our waiter was extremely attentive and helpful. Explained the wines available and some history of Thornton Winery. Food did take a bit to come out but when we received it was still hot so no issues. We ordered the Lobster panini and the Steak and Eggs. We tried the Chocolate Wine Flight and let me tell you it was AMAZING! The milk chocolate kiss and kiss of chocolate were my two favorites. I'll definitely be coming here again. Such a beautiful view and ambiance for a brunch date.
Service was slow and unaccommodating. Food was average.
The outdoor patio was nice but extremely bright for a dinner experience. The food was at best average and way over priced. The service started out okay and we were seated on time, however, the food was nearly cold and the waiter did not check back after taking our order.
Terrible service. Our waiter went on break without even telling us. We escalated to the manager and she did nothing. We ended up leaving after waiting over an hour. Worst service ever. Will never come back.
This was the absolute worst dining experience and I was sure to make it known to our server, Scott. The entire menu consists of frozen food from Costco freezer isle, and honestly that might be too kind.
Definently the champagne flight! And calamari the bread was sooo good. Thats spread with calamari and a glass of cab was a perfect combo
I was in 1.5 hours of traffic trying to get to the winery from Fallbrook due to an accident and when I called they understood and we still received our table. Great atmosphere and food.
Nice atmosphere and safe outdoor experience. The lobster panini was a bit misleading as it was really langostino....my fiancé would not have selected that had it been more accurately described. He was a bit disappointed since it was his birthday and it was ~$30 sandwich.
Every time we go to Thornton Winery it has been a wonderful experience and a great meal.
I recommend incentivizing members who encourage others to sign up. During our first time there, there were two people who signed up from our party.
Setting was pretty. Food was mediocre and not worth the menu prices.
Old friends getting together
Always enjoy the champagne tasting and the charcuterie for 2! Perfect lunch!
Good we enjoyed it
Celebrated a birthday dinner. Great experience, amazing food and great atmosphere
Scott was an amazing server if anyone asks me about this establishment I’m going to recommend them to sit in his section
Very expensive for a cement patio without any ambiance or view. The food was ok, but not amazing.
We had a wonderful birthday lunch for my husband at Cafe Champagne at the Thorton Winery in Temecula. Our waitress was super friendly and efficient, the service was excellent, as was the abundance of food. The wine flights are so much fun to sample different types of wine offered at Thorton. I highly recommend the chocolate wines!
Great day all around!
Scott our server was outstanding and super helpful.
Very slow service and either not enough servers (two) or that’s just how they are. Food was mediocre but service was unacceptable.
Arrived early for a reservation and was greeted pleasantly and sat immediately. Nice Terrace view overlooking rolling Hills of vineyards. Server seem to be having to handle several tables at one time but was pleasant and interacting with us throughout the night. Food was excellent especially the warm bread
Thanks for visiting. We appreciate the feedback and hope to see you back soon.
We will never return. Terrible outdoor plastic wobbly seating, noisy, the food was expensive, cold & definitely not worth the price. Watch your receipt, we were over charged!
Was better than expected for a popular place. Definitely recommend trying the chocolate wine flight!
Service was quiet slow, not enough waiter in my opinion. When we arrived we were seated right away and we set there for about 15 minutes before the waitress showed up. After ordering our food it took some time before we were served. It’s not that the place was packed.
