My wife and I returned to Chateau Faire le Pont after a near five year absence. We never considered a swift return to the winery, since the wines then were mediocre, at best. Happily, the five years between visits was kind to the wine. The selection is broader, and far more drinkable. Several of the wines are actually very, very good and almost worthy of their price-point.
The winery's restaurant, on the other hand, is less memorable. A handful of the items we had (Manhatten Clam Chowder, and the Prime Rib) were fine/average, but rest (Bacon-wrapped Scallops, Steak Medallions, side vegetables, salad and dressing, Bread Pudding desert) were poorly cooked to the point of being amateurish. First year Culinary School students do a far better job.
This is a decent winery playacting as an eatery. It's not a place I could ever recommend for the food, but is worth a quick stop to try the wine.

We checked out the Winery's website and saw that they offered a picnic lunch in the vineyard. The setting was great. While it's just a demonstration vineyard (and not the source of grapes for their wines), the small table on a platform surrounded by gardens and vines was fantastic. The picnic lunch started with a delicious Gazpacho (cold, spicy soup), followed by chicken salad finger sandwiches (with nice cheeses) and a freshly grilled cod wrap with crunchy vegetables. The dessert was a very nice creme brulee with a special surprise of chocolate pretzel truffles. An off-dry Riesling was paired with the soup, while two reds -- a Carmenere and a Malbec -- were paired with the main course. One of us had a glass of the Apple Ice wine and the other had the Syrah port to go with the dessert. The Carmenere was our favorite. A great meal for $25 each.

I grew up with a father who was a chef of 17 years. I have always had a good variety of AMAZING food. But eating out in Wenatchee, this has got to be the best food I have had made for me. Great service. LOVE the environment. Music. Definitely the place you want to go if your looking for some great Steak Seafood or Pasta! Salads are Great too!

What an amazing meal! The plating of their ozzo bucco was exquisite and the pork dish was more than I could have expected. Along with the bottle of malbec wine, our anniversary dinner was one to remember. Service at the winery is always exceptional with their wine stewards remembering your names and your personal particulars making the evenings more memorable. Thanks for another reat evening.

We were recently in Wenatchee, WA for a trade show and the staff at the Comfort Suites Inn. recommended dinner at Chateau Faire Le Pont winery. We had Dinner the first evening there and Lunch the day after. Both meals were superb. We did the wine tasting before dinner with a wine tasting coupon compliments of the Comfort Suites Inn. All of the wines tasted were very good. For dinner we had a bottle of the Cabernet and for lunch tried the Petit Verdot - Excellent. Dinner for two with desert and bottle of wine was $89.00 a real bargain. Ihad a beautiful rib eye steak and my wife tried the Prawns salad -superb. Our wait person Shallee was very pleasant and was very knowledgable and helpful when it came to wine selections and provided impeccable service. Jeremy hosted the wine tasting bar and was also equally helpful and a very pleasant fellow. This is probably the best restaurant in Wenatchee - don't miss it.
