  • This is my go to for when my husband and I actually get to enjoy a date. The food is fabulous and worth every penny. It's the sparkling flights that get me though. Don't forget to try the chocolate wi...  more »
  • Attended the winery for a jazz concert and a meal. The music was good however my view was obstructed by a huge fountain in the courtyard. I'm not sure this winery has the appropriate configuration for...  more »
  • You get to choose your wines and they bring them to you. No discussion about the wines. I think they are more interested in selling tastings than they are in selling their wines. I will not go back  more »

  • Good wine. Food was over priced. $22 for a burger, it was good but not worth $22. My friend got the fish and chips. It was horrible. The meet & cheese appetizer was really good. We all enjoyed that, we almost got another one. We should of and not ordered off the menu.
  • Purchased a ticket for Sheila E. as the headliner. This is how they got their tickets sold. Turns out it was only featuring Sheila E and the headliner was her father Pete Escobedo. Good show but I was so disappointed. Then they served SHARK for dinner! I don't eat fish at all. Allergic to the stuff and the waitress says well we're out of chicken, the only other choices are salmon and steak but medium rare only!! Unbelievable! I paid $160 per ticket and you can't grill me a piece of chicken! I normally love this place but not any more!
  • Above and beyond! In 1997 we were married at Thornton Winery and last month we returned to celebrate our 20 year anniversary and had an absolutely wonderful evening. They had a choice table set aside and tastefully decorated with a rose and rose pedals. The staff was incredible and really made our evening relaxing and enjoyable. The food was top notch. My wife claims her lobster ravioli and shark was the best seafood dish she's ever had and my steak was cooked bang-on. (And i give the chef lots of credit here, Chicago Medium-rare is not an easy task.) Also, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon was excellent. A really nice bottle of wine to go with steak. Overall a great evening, great food and great service. Compliments to all the staff and thank you for making it special. Jeff
  • Even amid the busyness Thornton Winery still managed to be a peaceful and serene location, we were a large group and we had a very nice time and we had the pleasure of enjoying our wine within the view of a bridal party that was getting ready for their daughters wedding.The father of the bride shared a lovely note he had just received from his daughter and we raised our glasses and toasted the happy couple. Many other guests stopped to chat with us. A lot of activity and the staff definitely had their hands full, and yet It was still rather magical...
  • We have developed a taste for decent wines over the years. We found the wines here okay. No "Wow" factor for us. Not bad wines, but not excellent either.
