Ate here a few times for dinner and although food is good, I feel the service is subpar and the meals overpriced and not a good value.

This was the second time my husband and I went to Wences for dinner. We were seated promptly and the restaurant was moderately full. It took about 5 minutes before the server came by to greet us and take our drink order. She came right back with my iced tea and said she'd be back with my husband's wine. I... More

It was a little bit of a wait but we had no reservations. The place was very alive but a little on the loud side. Food and service were great. Would recommend the lobster tacos!

My hubby and I went here for date night and enjoyed ourselves over all. The wait staff were attentive and the food was good. My only wish is that they had more than one pasta dish for a vegetarian option. Otherwise I would recommend

Not only did they remodel and warm up the interior, the menu got an overhaul as well. The new additions to the menu are great. The three mini soft tacos are really good as is the lobster chowder, fish and chips and the balsamic chicken on the dinner menu. We have been back several times the past month and will... More

I've been here 4 times and each time has been great. Bar could be more generous with their pours, but the food is really good! I've had the crab stack salad more than once as it's really delicious! Try their french donuts for dessert - YUM!

My 2 friends and I ate lunch here. It was quiet enough for us to talk for 2 hours over a delicious lunch. We each had a glass of Pinot Grigio, shared a delicious plate of calamari and ordered wonderful salads. I had the Caesar with chicken. Tasty!

Decided to try Wence's for dinner with friends last night, made reservation online and very glad we did as this is a super popular and busy restaurant. Parking is free but challenging as several good restaurants share this strip. We all ordered soup, and all three kinds were absolutely delicious. Lobster bisque was the best, perfectly seasoned and served with... More
