Sat at the bar with my wife for a glass of wine and appetizers. Settled on the charcuterie (sp?) With cheese. Very enjoyable. The bar is sort of in the middle of the entry way to the restaurant and was a bit chaotic. Stephanie was our bartender and did a great job. She was upbeat and gracious and patient with... More

Our birthdays are only one month apart and we like to do a quiet lunch together to celebrate both. I have gone to the Wente Vineyards over the past 16 years and never been disappointed.

This is a combination review of restaurant and theatre performance. Should you have the option of the buffet and performance, which is quite nice, but the outdoor restaurant seating and then the performance is highly recommended. The service at the restaurant, not to mention the delicious dinner was excellent. Being out under the stars and watching the Diana Ross production... More

We had a wonderful meal out on the patio. We especially enjoyed the cheese and charcuterie platter. I had the scallops which were to die for and my guest enjoyed the pork chop. The Morning Fog Chardonnay was delicious. The only part of the meal that I didn't enjoy was the dessert. We ordered the peaches and cake and it... More

My friend and I enjoyed an outstanding lunch here today!!! I chose the beet salad with Pt. Reyes blue cheese which was delightful as it paired wonderfully with the Wente Whip white wine!! My next course was the Grass Fed Burger with thick bacon, sautéed red onions, aged cheddar and perfect fries!!! My friend truly enjoyed the exquisitely prepared pork... More

I recently went here to celebrate my 50th birthday. The setting is scenic and Wente is an iconic winery in Livermore. They have quite an extensive concert series every summer as well, which may need some planning for or around depending on your interest in the concert. I was there with a larger party, but our reserved seating was available... More

I went to a banquet for a conference held at Wente Vineyards. There was a wine tasting with cheese and charcuterie, and that was excellent. I enjoyed all of the Wente wines I tried, and the cheese, etc. was great. The meal was chicken, salmon, on a bed of wilted greens and potatoes? I can't remember. I loved the greens... More

Had a family lunch celebrating my mom's birthday at Wente Vineyards. We had a wonderful table outside in the shade. The scenery is really nice and the Service was attentive. The food was very good - I had the mushroom risotto and a nice glass of Chardonnay. I ate here years ago at night with my wife and it was... More

This is a wonderful restaurant, good food, good staff, lovely setting. If you require a special diet (gluten-free, dairy-free, etc) you may have to work with the menu a little bit... Twice I've I asked for vegan options and the staff hasn't been very helpful, they don't cater to special diets... Other than that, it is an outstanding restaurant and... More
