Wonderful experience! Pizza is great! Love the live music! Very fun family outing and feels Covid safe w the outdoor breeze! They need to work on their salads! Salmon was great but the salad part was less than good! Hopefully that will change since not everyone can eat bread! Would love a salad w a lot of fresh green veggies that went together! Mine was just iceburg lettus (yuck) craisins and some cheese. The ceaser is a little better but still not great!

The view, ambience, food and wine were all excellent. The only disappointing part was that there wasn't anyone picking up the dirty dishes, utensils or wine glasses. We tried as best we could to clean up our tables but after a while the pile of dirty dishes really took away from the overall ambience.

I absolutely love Cordiano Winery! We live in L.A. and enjoy coming down to the S.D. area for weekend getaways. We always make sure to stop here, because the food, service, and the WINE are amazing! I originally made a reservation for a Sunday at 1pm, but when we got a late start on the day, I called and they were very accommodating in pushing the reservation by a couple hours.

Everything thing is always excellent and we are wine club members. One exception… The Charcuterie board is lacking in value and quality. I have ordered it three times and been disappointed every time. The meat seems sparse and wilted (for lack of a better word) and the cheese was spare and dried out. Charcuterie boards are extremely desirable when drinking wine. I will no longer order the charcuterie board which is a shame. Hopefully they will take this information and update their board to a better value and quality. Other than that… this place is amazing and we visit often. Autumn Monterosso

We always enjoy our visit to Cordiano Winery. The owners, Mr. and Mrs. Cordiano take a personal interest in us. That makes my wife and I feel special. Of course, the food is good and the estate wines are great. I like their Cab. Keep on Truckin.
