Nice setting for patio dining. Food was pretty good - interesting flatbreads and a few nice salads. Definitely worth trying if you're in the Livermore wineries area and need to eat while sipping some local wine

4 of us came in for lunch and sat outside. We purchased a bottle of wine at their tasting room and had free corkage. We had an appetizer of 2 bowls of deep fried olives. They are delicious. We had 3 hamburgers with side Caesar Salad instead of fries. 4th person a salmon sandwich with clam chowder. All the meals were delicious. But, we were not surprised because we have been here before.

The food is really excellent here. My friend and I had the ravioli dish and a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. Our server was personable, helpful and efficient. Everyone was friendly and made you feel comfortable. We definitely will come back here and try more dishes.

Although Garre Cafe is only few miles from me, this was my first time and wonder why I did not come sooner.

The food and service was excellent and loved sitting out side. But did not have any wine because I had to drive.

I would highly recommend it.

We ordered the Salmon Risotto, it seemed a bit bland. The service was ok. The place has lost its ambiance maybe due to the pandemic but overall it did not feel like anything special.

The server was not attentive or friendly. The food was not very good at all. The steak was over done, limited seasoning and seemed a touch old. The fish had to be sent back as it was too fishy. Go there for salad, pizza or a sandwich, it’s not a good “nice” dinner spot, but it’s OK for a whatever dinner. The sunset view is lovely.

This is a lovely spot. It's a bit out of the way, but well worth the trip off the freeway. Food was excellent. Outdoor seating is plentiful and well spaced. The service is excellent. Highly recommend the blackened salmon.

The staff was professional and the service was good. The wait staff was adequate but at could have been a bit more friendly and attentive. Over all we enjoyed the restuarant and the pricing was reasonable. Of our party of 6 three people stated the food was ok one ordered a seafood dish but didn'enjoy it and couldn't eat it. One guest ordered jambalaya stated it was very good.

Had the seafood pasta, mussels were not cleaned and was really fishy smelling. Sauce was bland. Steak was overcooked and had to send back. They completely forgot our appetizers... I guess that's one way to make sure we eat under the 90 minute time limit...

Garre has a nice selection of food and wines.
Their fried Castelvetrano olive appetizer are delicious.
Margaretta flatbread is tasty.
I'd select one of their other deserts over the port. It's okay; but you don't need to write home over it.
It's a very nice outdoor dining venue.

Outstanding view, beautiful winery. Good service and very good wine. Food was fair. Had the Nonna's meatballs (good), the Carbonera pasta (not bad), and the Petrale Sole with Risotto (could have been much better). Would come back for the wine and the scenery, perhaps a sunny lunch better suits this locale.

Mostly good, but they shouldn’t take reservations after 6. We felt rushed and our meal wasn’t cheap. Everyone was gone and the waiter offered for us to stay, but we didn’t feel comfortable. There were reservations for 7:45 which is super misleading. They close at 8:00 and it’s the kind of pricing you expect to be able to relax for a leisurely dinner. I’m a former server, so I don’t like to put the waitstaff out.
