Wente Winery was my first experience visiting a winery in California and it was a lot of fun! My husband's friend took us here as she is a regular. The atmosphere at the winery was really relaxing. We did the legendary flight, which was a mix of white and red wines. The gentlemen that helped us with the tasting, Kevin,... More

Recommendation from our uber driver. We didn't know what to expect And were pleasantly surprised. Beautiful setting , very good service. Soup of the day was excellent. I hesitated at the $22.00 cheesesteak. It was very good.

The Wente Winery Restaurant is always a special place for any special occasion offering excellent foods: salads, meats, appitizers and desserts. Whether inside or outside, Wente Winery Restaurant will have your group remembering this fabulous eatery for years to come! I promise, you (they) will not wine about it. Enjoy! 👍

Photo above is of the restaurant on Arroyo Road, not of Tesla tasting.This excellent restaurant is worth the trip out "to the country". Fresh, organically grown veggies from their own garden highlights the outstanding menu. Perfect for special occasions! And on a nice evening, sit outside to enjoy the view and spot some wild turkeys - and maybe sip some... More

Great atmosphere, great service, and wonderful food! The new chef is outstanding and we are seeing more and more of his dishes on the menu. The favorites are still there, but the new items are outstanding. We usually have to try 2 or 3 appetizers, and the soup is not to be missed either! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

We did both the wine tasting and had dinner at the restaurant. Both were phenomenal. The aged pork chop is definitely a must have. Service was excellent and very accommodating. Highly recommend this place.

We live really close in Livermore but this is the first time that we visited a winery. We visited Wente Vineyards and it was amazing! The vineyard has a golf course and The Restaurant surrounded by hills. We visited the Arroyo Road location (as they have a location at Tesla Road too). We did make a reservation for the Restaurant.... More

We were initially turned away, although the place wasn't yet closed and the place was very busy still. The person in the shop area gave us such a bad attitude, even though I would have been ok with leaving if they were indeed closing, she was so rude. I used the bathroom and noticed there's a separate tasting room where... More
