“Lots of fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

I would recommend this location for lunch or early dinner after wine tasting. If weather permits sit outside. Also at this site is the golf course grill. Very good for lunch ...
I live in Livermore and take guest to this restaurant all the time as well as going there with local friends.

“Beautiful Atmosphere and Delicious Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Though a little on the pricey side, the food here is quite good and if you can score a table outside on a sunny day, somehow the experience goes from 'quite good' to 'fantastic'. The restaurant is nestled back into the base of a foothill, surrounded by trees on one side and vineyards and their golf course on the other. The beautiful tasting room and conference area is in the back and adjacent to a large grass area reserved for weddings and concerts, so every seat has a view. You do feel as though you are fine dining in Napa and the 'house' wines are excellent. If you want to impress someone, share a great time, or just want to feel pampered, Wente is the destination for you.

“Tasty, innovative meal in the vineyards”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

We had been to this restaurant two times before, and it did not impress us at those times. However, on our third try at this restaurant (motivated by consistently good reviews recently), we felt that the cooking had reached a new high. We started out with eggs stuffed with crab meat; for the main entrees, one of us had Walu and the other Grouper. Both dishes were cooked perfectly with an interesting blend of ingredients and ample portions of fish. The wine list was extensive. We chose a pinot noir from Oregon. All bottles on this particular Saturday were sold at half-price--so we drank half of our bottle and took the rest home.

The service was very good--a little intrusive but fine.
