Every Aspect of this dining experience was awesome. Yes, awesome ... & expensive!! So go prepared. Our initial bill for 2 was $175+, before tip ... then a coupon took off $50, and a memership card took $25 more off. It does raise a question, what is the true value of these awesome dining experiences ... if you value a truly complete dining experience - wine, food, setting, service, etal. go The Resturant at Wente Vineyards.
We enjoyed a brilliant Fall evening (the eastern hills held a warm golden glow in late afternoon), a fixed price dinner and another entree, a few glasses of wine, coffee and dessert. Read the other reviews to get a full appreciation of various courses. You will not be disappointed - especially if you value your own value and plan ahead.
We based our 20% tip on the initial bill ... hopefully it made the service staff as happy about the experience as we felt. Bon Appetit!
