  • I'm a local here and have visited about a dozen different wineries. What brought me to mount Palomar was their live music on a Sunday. What's better than a band in a winery? Well the band was good - s...  more »

  • The cave for tastings were a fun surprise. The staff was fun and awesome, but the wine lost the good rating for us. It was either REALLY dry or syrup sweet. Neither my husband nor myself could find a good happy medium wine.
  • I am writing this review solely because I've never experienced a rude manager like Kevin at this winery. After we were told to order our drinks at the bar, my mom goes up to the bar to do as she's told and the manager rather than kindly tell her they changed their minds, yells at my mother to get back to her table so her server can take her order. It was so embarrassing our server had to come over and apologize. The two female waitresses we had were so nice and accommodating, but if Kevin the manager is an indication of the way the owners would like their winery ran I will gladly spend my money elsewhere.
  • Having trouble editing so forgive the typos. Very disappointed bringing family out of town It is Memorial Day- butttttttt wow our service was horrible. We waited over an hour for our food. It was good- not excellent. Sangria is amazing not served in the restaurant- why? To be difficult? Make thThe burger is $17?! Think that's the outrageous won't be back
  • Grossly overpriced, inconvenient and arrogant. Why would I want to stand in line twice - - - once to buy a "drink ticket" and a second time to order my wine? But that's what you must do at this arrogant enclave. Two glasses of wine and a salad set us back more than $40. Really? We later left for a more intimate setting several miles down the road. Fantastic! No ticket taking. No arrogance. No crowds. We will NOT return to Mount Palomar and we will NOT recommend that anyone do so.
  • We visited at the end of our day. The winery had outdoor patios with areas of seating. We had to order the featured Cantaritos Tequila Margarita which was citrusy & pretty darn good! Maybe that is why duplicate photos are posted.
