Come Celebrate Your Senses!
The essence of great dining experience!

We would love to have the opportunity to share with you our passion for food & wine. Come dine with us at Cafe Merlot and take a little time to tour the lovely and provincial Bernardo Winery with its boutique shops, wine tasting room, wonderful rustic charm and temperate weather.

We suggest that you call ahead for a reservation as we do tend to get a bit 'booked up'. Toni or Rick would be happy to take your reservation and answer any questions you may have about our restaurant.
