Calamari was like eating rubber bands. Soft beets in the beet salad. Main course of salmon and green beans was decent but nothing special. Passed on dessert. Overall average food. Service was attentive but also nothing special. Will not return and will not recommend.

The atmosphere was perfect, quiet and not too busy. The food was delish, as was the suggested wine. Highly recommend, but should make reservations prior to avoid a wait.

Came here for the first time to celebrate my sister’s engagement.

We had wine tasting reservations at 11 and cafe reservations at 1215.

They said wine tasting would only take an hr so it would be fine. We ended up at the cafe at 1220 and had to wait an additional 20 mins for our table. It was a bit of a bummer.

Over good experience but had to make semi drunk hungry women wait to eat.

Date night for us, paid way too much for a filet mignon though. Can’t say much about it though, since the market price is so high now.

My hubby order the Chicken Marsala not knowing there were onions in it so he only ate 1/3. We ordered the artichoke dip for the appetizer, the crunchy oval breads were okay but the dip was great. I would've like chips or a different kind of crunchy bread. I had the Caesar salad and tomato soup for my meal. Soup was good. The salad had croutons with an unusual spice which I had to put aside. We got cappuccinos for dessert which were really tasty. Service was great. Water/bread girl had a flat affect. I like going here because it's far enough from the busyness of Livermore, beautiful sceneries, ambience is outstanding, so relaxing over there. It's clean and inviting. Although, the last time I went there, it was about 5 weeks after my shoulder surgery. I ask the server to put my food in a to go box for me and my arm was clearly in the sling and I couldn't do it myself-- she replied NO. So, I didn't go back there for sometime.

Lovely patio. Staff a bit overwhelmed, but I get it. Pulled pork was a bit on the sweet side. Cajun chicken great. Not spicy.

Our group of six had an excellent lunch with great service. Our waitress was very attentive and offered to give us separate bills. Blackened salmon, jambalaya, and seafood rigatoni were thoroughly enjoyed. We shared the tiramisu and left very satisfied.
Note: the menus were sprayed and wiped down after each use.

Disappointed in the scallopini dish. Lighting too bright so ambience was not good. Hope these two things are helpful to make things better.

Once again, a great lunch at the Garre Cafe with friends. Appetizers - fried olives and baked brie were outstanding. All of our entrees, three flatbreads and the risotto were excellent. Service was attentive without being obtrusive. Definitely one of our favorites.

Our server was not very attentive. For example, we did not get the complimentary bread at the beginning, she never came back to fill our water glasses, and never checked whether we needed another round of drinks (I had to tell the busboy to call her).

The Maytag Blue salad and beet salad were delicious, as was the risotto with salmon. The eggplant parm was a little undercooked. The affogato and bread pudding were tasty. Knowledgeable service about dietary restrictions. Extensive wine list.
