We were pleasantly surprised by a really quite excellent dinner last evening at The Winery Restaurant in Tustin. There is nothing spectacular about this restaurant, but everything...food, service and ambiance were all first rate. We were greeted warmly, seated at a comfortable table, and immediately attended to by a very pleasant and competent server. The cocktails were great. Warm and good bread were immediately served.
We split a caesar salad which was excellent. I had an absolutely delicious flat iron steak...perfectly prepared, lean, tender and obviously first-rate meat. Most of the beef comes from Brandt Farms which is the purveyor for Dean & Deluca...clearly a superb product. I had a baked potato side which was good. My companion had halibut which was served with four delicious shrimp and a nice assortment of vegetables. We shared a very good cheesecake for dessert.
We brought an excellent Oregon pinot noir from home. This was decanted for us without having to ask that this be done.
Our table was visited a few times by senior staff to make sure everything was fine...it was! This is definitely a place we'll return to!
