The Garre Cafe is a real jewel. So glad we have discovered it. Very competent chef. Our Sunday lunch was perfect. Very good service too. Definitely not fancy and it’s a small lively place, but I think an excellent value for a nosh while winetasting in the Livermore Valley.

I bit noisy for individuals with all the large parties. Our waitress did not offer a 'taste' of the bottle of
wine we ordered, just started pouring full glasses for everyone....training needed . Nor did she smile the entire lunch.
The flatbread was pizza dough, not flatbread.
I would come back again, but only if the patio was open to give the cafe one more try.

I had the best Caesar salad I've ever tasted. The server was so nice and accommodating. I will be recommending Garre Winery to all my friends. It was recommended to me and now I will be praising Garre to others. The friends I have will be delighted when they dine at your restaurant.

I knew this restaurant was there and very close to my house but I never seemed to make it there. Big mistake! Beautiful setting, lights were a little bright, very good service and the food was outstanding. My brother in law was with us. He has lived in LA and New York and he thought it was the best meal he had ever had in a restaurant. We went on a Friday night and the place was half empty. Our server told us on Saturday's they are normally packed. We will definitely be going back.

First time we've been disappointed with Garre ...
They only do their delicious duck/mushroom flatbread/pizzas for lunch but, we've always been able to order for dinner. This time we were told they can't make the delicious dish that we were craving :(
Food and wine are always great but, our server had no personality and was absent most of the time.

First time visit here and loved it! The ambiance was great and the food was delicious. The only ding I would give them is that when my daughter gave them her debit card to pay for the meal, the server brought back the card and said it wouldn't go through. My daughter was quite surprised because she knew she had more than enough in her account to cover our check. Fortunately, we were all family and we just laughed it off but imagine how embarrassing this could h ave been. My daughter contacted her bank and was told that the restaurant tried to process the card using the magnetic strip and not the chip. They must have tried this 3 times and caused the account to be locked. This was a major inconvenience for my daughter as she had no access to her account until the next business day. This sounds like a training issue that management should address.

I have eaten here several times but with varying results. For one of the only wineries to serve food, this cafe should up their game. My friend and I had the half sandwich with soup for our lunch. Her bun looked like someone had cut off the outer edges-she had pulled pork. The turkey in my sandwich could have been straight out of a prepackaged container, with iceberg lettuce, a slice of tomato and Dijon mustard. Subpar for this kind of a restaurant. Sorry to say but In the future, I think I’ll skip it.

Overall, a great venue for an evening with friends and/or family. You have a wide selection of menu items well-complemented by a superb wine list. The restaurant was family-friendly with both indoors and outdoors seating. Set in the middle of the Garre vineyards, you could not ask for a more beautiful location-and the sunset will be a highlight of your evening. Go for the Veal Parmigiana and their great selection of dry-aged steaks, but treat yourself as well to their mac and cheese! Great evening!

This was our second experience at Garre cafe. We were promptly seated on the patio. Wine and appetizers were excellent. Menu items are still the same as our last lunch. Everyone was very pleased with their selection. Staff members are very attentive. Surroundings are very scenic. This place is highly recommended

Very nice venue with excellent knowledgeable wait staff. Relaxing outdoor seating. Varied menu with something for everyone. We enjoyed the Garre wines very much that our server recommended when we asked. The only thing I didn’t like was the loud clatter that seems to be common in most restaurants these days from having no tablecloths or carpets. I know it looks clean and modern but it’s no good for conversation. Other than that, it was a wonderful experience. We plan on visiting again soon.

We have been there before and went for lunch on my Birthday
Lovely table on the patio. Service was painfully slow had to go inside to get bottle of wine we ordered 15 minutes ago
Food was good but it would have been better if we had our wine to go with it.
They were crowded but still no excuse

It's a wonderful experience to sit outside, enjoying good food and watching the sun set. However, the last two visits there were marred by terrible food delivery, and going forward I must remember not to order a baked potato to go with my meat course. In both instances, the potato arrived as everyone (myself included) were finishing their dinner and thinking about dessert. How hard can it be to bring a baked potato in a timely fashion?

This was my 1st time at Garre. Its a beautiful venue and the cafe was a great place to watch live music. However, the wait staff was a bit clueless and unorganized. We were the only people in there and the waitress had a bit of a problem taking, and bringing our order. Very nice and pleasant, just a bit confused. They also tried to bring us food that wasn't ours. Three different times. It was all kind of bizarre. Otherwise, we had a great time. We will be back if the right entertainment is there. Wolf was outstanding! . Thank you.

My sister and I ate lunch at Garre Cafe recently. This is a very attractive restaurant, and the food was absolutely delicious! The service was very good as well. Garre has a tasting room for its winery on the same site, so we visited that and enjoyed tasting a few of their wines and talking with the person working there that day. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience!
