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

We took clients for a celebration dinner and had a fantastic experience. Very good ambiance, great service, good food. Could not have asked for anything more! Will definitely visit another day for lunch.

I really could leave my review at the title, and it would summarize the high point of my experience. Wente is a restaurant that is committed to high quality, locally sourced, and frankly delicious ingredients. Take my advice, and go with the pork chop. Their menu changes monthly, so it will be prepared differently depending on seasonal ingredients. Their wine... More

Love the location! The Gardens and patio are very nice! Usually the service is spot on, but not always. The food ranges from very good to very mediocre. The deserts were not very well prepared, no one at our table was pleased with the taste of the deserts. They looked pretty, but did not taste good. I have also gone... More

Service was very professional. The prociutto salad with fig and the risotto were very nice. The gardens are beautiful, although the temperature outside was a little bit hot.
