We needed a quick bite before heading to a winery. We had an hour to find a restaurant, order, eat and pay. Meritage was fantastic with nice portions, good prices and great flavors. They were happy to accommodate a last-minute group of three, and worked around our schedule. Don was our server and had fun with us, while helping us... More

Had a delightful lunch on a Thursday afternoon (2pm) in September. Came here with a friend who was a wine club member at Callaway - wine club members get 10% discount when dining at Meritage. Lovely restaurant with panoramic views over the vineyards. Primarily open for lunch until 4pm Mondays to thru Thursdays, and until 8pm on Fri-Sun. Nice menu.... More

We ordered several "flights" to try a dozen of their wines and found a very nice Cabernet Rose (!). We ordered only their Tapas, but a lot of them and they were really nice. We recommend this place. It is not the most coziest or romantic but still very worth it.

Restaurant views are amazing, daily specials are great and you have to try the corn on the cob if in season

It starts off good, with a nice view and a cool room with barrel storage in the background. One look at the menu tells you they are VERY proud of their food. So I ordered the $25 pork belly BLT with avocado. Service was slow and poor. Finally got this sandwich and the pork belly was so overcooked I had... More

We stopped at Callaway Vineyards for lunch (we had done a wine tasting there previously) and had a very good experience. This winery is arguably one of the more well known wineries in Temecula and we were interested in just chilling out for lunch. We were delighted with the service, the food and the atmosphere. We were seated immediately at... More

Friendly staff, a little high priced, we shared the kobe French dip which is impossible to pick up and eat but delicious, the seafood appetizer has a little too much cilantro for me. Our server was very helpful with a wine flight and it was a very enjoyable lunch.

Sitting high atop Temecula's breathtaking wine country, Meritage at Callaway offers guests incredible panoramic views of the rolling hills and vineyards. At one of the most relaxing, tranquil and truly unique Temecula winery restaurants guests can enjoy a delightful array of fresh, farm-to-table, made from scratch meals. The menu, which is paired with Callaway's award-winning wines, changes seasonally. Executive Chef, Josh Diamond believes in serving his guests only the freshest, most delectable meals. Chef's cooking philosophy stems from his passion for quality food, creating in the kitchen and farming. This is apparent not only in his dishes but also in the fact that he maintains an onsite greenhouse and garden for Meritage. Many of the ingredients used by the restaurant come from the greenhouse and garden when available, otherwise Chef sources and supports seasonal, sustainable food from local farmers. Come in and taste the difference!
