The food is Great. Appetizers through Desert The preparation and flavor are outstanding. Try the smoked pork chop, even if you don't normally order pork. It is well worth it. The Atmosphere is Great. On the grounds of the Wente Vineyard estate. Beautiful grounds. The restaurant always has fresh flowers. Very romantic. The service is exceptional. The waitstaff are very... More

Caesar salad is the best I've ever had. I've eaten here on several occasions while traveling for work. I'm always alone and the service is great. The view from outside is amazing. You will not be disappointed with anything you order.

Fine dining in the vineyards of rural Livermore, CA. Excellent atmosphere, ambiance, and menu selections with ample seating on the patio or indoor dining rooms. The attentive service, wine selections, and the food quality are top notch!

The location in the open countryside is excellent both the external and the internal parts of the restaurant. The service, from all members of staff is friendly, efficient and professional. The menu is long enough. It is disappointing that there were no vegetarian options however. Nonetheless the food was tasty and of high quality.

What a treat! We were visiting family who live the area and they took us to Wente for Sunday brunch. I ordered a burger (which was among the best I have ever eaten) and the beets--delicious and fresh. The service is top notch and they were patient with our young children. Walking around the property after lunch was lovely. I... More

The kitchen at Wente definitely has much to recommend it but they need some training from an Italian chef. We ordered the chicken salad entree', the mushroom risotto and the grilled chicken breast with a fresh corn salsa. The chicken salad was exquisite.... bountiful with garden flowers, tender chicken pieces, and frisee' lettuce. Excellent, too, was the chicken breast but... More

Perfect place for dining, You will be between vines and a magical restaurant with very good food. Try Wente wines, from a vineyard founded 125 years ago. Place offer golf carts to practice range & overview of Livermore Valley.
