We always love coming to cordiano . However, the salad tasted as if it was premade and was somewhat wilted. Also, as we came in we were told we must leave at a certain time w our reservation ie no more than two hrs at restaurant. This was the first time i have ever been told this at restaurant. Quite a turn off comment and request. Otherwise , a pleasant experience.

Your lasagna was really super! Also, one of us had a birthday and it was noted on our reservation ... but nothing "happened." Why have that as an reservation option (Are you celebrating any thing special?) if nothing is going to happen? It didn't wreck our time, we just kind of ... wondered.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Cordiano Winery. I had the wine flight and it was a nice selection of whites and reds. My husband had the Portofino which was also wonderful. They were very conscientious about following Covid sanitation procedures and I felt very comfortable relaxing and enjoying my wine. The only change I would suggest is allowing the customer to choose the wines, from a selected list, for the wine flight, since we can’t do tastings at this time. Overall I would rate this experience a 10. Thank you Cordiano for a nice afternoon.

This is a beautiful, family winery. The owners are lovely. I have celebrated two birthdays here. Even with the proper safety precautions in place, this was a wonderful location for my small group to go. The food is great and the wine is wonderful too. It's not too pricey and the view makes it all the better. Thank you!

We love coming to Cordiano! The overall experience is never less than 10. The pizza and wine are amazing. My only disappointment was in the wait time in line to order. We came at dinner time and of course it was busy. An additional person to take orders would be helpful.
