A favorite in Livermore

The food is excellent, but I have to say something about the service during our last two visits. They have not been up to the standards of this restaurant. Twice, we have received free items because something in the service has gone wrong. My husband and I enjoy this restaurant, the location... read more

We had a memorable dinner at Wente Vineyards. Started off with craft cocktails and each course that followed was delicious. The yellow tail crudo and beet salad followed by the New York Steak and Tagliatelle were awesome. The Scallop dish was a bit on the small side. We were able to take our dessert and coffee by the fire pit... More

We celebrated our son's 53rd birthday outside on the veranda...it was magical! The ambiance was exceptional, the service suburb and the food was wonderful. I would recommend the Riva Ridge chardonnay while eating outside. It was excellent! Try the pasta, since it is homemade and the pork chop was divine.

We went to the restaurant for brunch after a number of recommendations. The waitress was friendly and after changing our table we were comfortable (the sun was too hot for us to sit in direct sunlight). The food was not bad but it did take a long time to arrive. As it took so long we decided against doing a... More

We have dined here several times over the past couple of decades; so we had high expectations. The setting in the old ranch house rooms is exceptional & elegant as always. On this occasion, a friendly business luncheon, the food quality was very good, but for the most part, not outstanding. We had cocktails, champagne & wine preceeding our meals... More

Another great meal at Wente! Consistent every visit with excellent service and great food. Appetizers were incredible and meals were great. You have to sit outside!! Great view of vineyard and great grounds. Not much to say except that we are never disappointed with our visits here.

The wine is good and the food is great. The outdoor deck is stunning! It is a great place for a romantic date night. I had the prime rib and it was excellent. My only hint of advice is to make sure you make reservations!!!!

We attended the Lyle Lovett concert and had dinner at the restaurant. We had informed the restaurant that my husband has a gluten allergy and we were assured that he could be accommodated. The starter was a popover which was good but certainly contained wheat, no substitute was offered for my hubby. The beet and mascarpone salad was great but... More

I have dined at this restaurant many many times sense it opened years ago. It was once a top 10 rated restaurant. The last two times I have had dinner here it has been less than what I expected. The food is good but not excellent as it once was. The service has been the worst I have ever seen... More

This winery offers a variety of monthly events including guest chef and wine pairings. We have never been disappointed in the meals or the selected wines for the pairings. A 5 course meal would offer 4-5 different wines. Also, the Resturant is available for private functions. My wife and I had my USNavy Captain "capping" dinner here. There were over... More
