I have always loved this restaurant. The food, location, ambiance & staff have always been outstanding. When I had lunch there recently I was not very happy with the food. I had pasta and a salad and they were just OK. I'm stunned that lunch is now the same price as the dinner menu for food that is only adequate.... More

We dined at Wente last night. The service was quite good. For a starter we had the avocado and prosciutto devil eggs. Yummy! Next came the clams but they were over cooked. For entrées I had the duck with house sausage. Definitely try any of the sausages. The pork chop was good but it was a tad to the medium.... More

My husband and I were just passing through from Yosemite to San Francisco. We spent the night in Livermore based on reviews for wineries. We stopped at the winery next door and decided to have dinner here for convenience. The appetizer, salad and dinner were all divine...absolutely delicious and fantastic. If we lived in the area, we would definitely be... More

Wente is an amazing place. The food is very good ( try the smoked pork chop) and the service is usually very elegant. This place is known for it's wine so be sure to try either red or white. We liked the merlot and the pinot. The wait staff is almost always very classy. We have been here about 5=... More

The view of the golf course in early morning even if I don't golf at this point in my life is outstanding. Food is superb. Wait staff is outstanding also. Not many people know about this place and that is fine with me. It is peaceful and serene overlooking the the course. Sun has not risen with a little chill... More

I usually go early in the am. I enjoy sitting outside where it is very peaceful looking at the golf course with no one on it yet. The sun has not risen over the hill also. I bring a newspaper to read waiting for a nicely prepared breakfast and a hot cup of coffee. Meals are varied, but you have... More

The terrace at Wente is a beautiful dining place, especially when the sun is setting on the neighboring hills. We had an excellent meal. The two soups, melon and tomatoes, were colorful, pretty, and tasty. The duck breast was excellent. The service is good.

Having had a number of excellent dinners at this restaurant, my wife and I decided to try it for a relaxed Labor day Lunch. We were more than pleasantly surprised. The menu, which changes monthly, had just the right mix of fish, fowl, meat and vegetarian dishes. All were quite unique abut, most pleasing, was the relatively reasonable prices. Couple... More
