The Grill at Wente Vineyards
Food was delicious even though limited. Setting fabulous.
We will miss the Entertainment Club perks. With those perks, it is a much better value.
I took a friend there for her B.Day lunch as I always rave about the 1883 burger so she wanted to try one. It did not disappoint - she thought it was soooo delicious!! Our server, Monica, was very pleasant, attentive and cordial and provided excellent service! My friend and I stayed quite a while so when Monica ended her shift, another server who I had the pleasure of her service in the past (JanAnn) took over and made sure we were still o.k., checking in from time to time. We couldn't have asked for a better experience - it was ever-so-delightful!!
Great place to stop for a nice lunch. The weather was beautiful so we sat outside and enjoyed lunch while watching the golfers go by.
Wonderful place for outdoor seating on a good weather day. Good food and relaxing atmosphere.
Our group had a great reunion and a very good lunch. Everyone was very nice and did not rush us out.
Relaxing, beautiful view. Great place for visitors.
Best friend in town from Hong Kong. They loved the place. We had an awesome time!
We celebrated our friend's birthday on the deck at the Grill. Our service was perfect. Very accommodating - we asked to move to a more shaded table and this was done immediately. The lunch was very good. Our server helped us with the birthday cake we brought. Lovely afternoon!
Location is fantastic. Service and food is very good overall.
Parking was easy and very convenient.
New menu that is for sharing. Outstanding shrimp and chicken dish. Enjoyed their Chardonnay
I had a reservation but due to traffic I was unable to keep the arranged time. I called the restaurant and they were happy to accommodate our circumstances. We started our first time dining there on a good note. The food and services was excellent. I would eat there again.
We were able to have a group work and eat with no disruptions and enjoy a wonderful view.
I made reservation through Open Table and mentioned it was a Birthday dinner. We sat out on the patio and enjoyed the beautiful view. We ordered the steak which the waiter said was the best thing on the menu. Unfortunately it was smothered in a heavy sauce with a really strong flavor that totally overwhelmed the taste of the meat, although the salad, veggies and potatoes were fine. However the wine was totally overpriced. Practically all of their wines were over $20 a glass and many of them were up to $30 or more. There were hardly any wines at a reasonable price for those of us who prefer to have choices in the $10-15 range. The wines were okay but not worth those prices. Also, they never acknowledged this was a birthday dinner.
Birthday lunch with the girls
Good is always good.
The Thai salad was really boring. They should go back to their Chinese chicken salad.
Nice outdoor location for a casual lunch, although both lunches (SW salad, mini quesadillas) both had a bit too much spiciness for our taste. Great wine selection tho.
Very disappointed in the quality of the food -extremely salty, salad limp and brown. Pricing high for food not even up to standard of a fast food place.
3 couples had lunch and split the bill 3 ways on credit cards. All of us were double charged. We contacted the restaurant and left voicemails to try and correct. None of us received a call back. All are currently disputing the duplicate charge with our credit card companies. This is on top of the And let's not forget that I don't think anyone ever heard back from the restaurant manager other than someone saying they were having a problem with their System that day and someone would call is back. Never happened. Add that to the mediocre food, less than stellar service and mediocre minus wine.
Wonderful lunch next to golf course. Great hillside view with beautiful trees !
The service was good. The food was OK, but not great. Burgers were good, the quesadilla was not. I am sorry Wente closed their main restaurant. The grill is as good as any other place in Livermore, The Grill offers a nice view of the golf course. It is a place to go after a round of golf, not for a lunch with friends.
A very beautiful place for lunch. Very relaxing.
Amazing setting and incredible food! Everything is shareable which allows you to try a few different options on the menu. You will want to try everything!
The food was decent and service was ok. We waited for a long time for each item luckily we were not in a hurry. The view was beautiful from were we sat. Probably will not come back again it's not worth the price and view.
Nestled in a quiet valley, Wente by the Golf Course has always been my favorite place to chill with a glass of wine. The restaurant is perfect for a casual or formal dining.
I thought the charge for small portions was a bit much. Good service, though.
I found that the Wente grill was way too expensive for the cuisine that was offered. Unfortunately, the cuisine was uninspired and very low brow. $24 for a hamburger that wasn't that good tasting.... If it was a good tasting hamburger I would give a better rating.
Enjoyed our lunch with out of town friends. They were impressed with the food and service and so were we. Thank you
Beautiful Livermore day on the patio. Excellent food, service & ambiance. We love time spent at the grille with dear friends every week!
The Grill not up to par on my latest visit. I made a reservation, but was greeted with "There will be a 45 minute wait time at lunch today." When I mentioned a reservation I was immediately taken to a table. BUT, I learned the 45 minute wait was the time it would take to have food arrive at the table! Food quality wasn't up to par either. I ordered a Reuben sandwich. I expected fresh cut meat from a freshly cooked corned beef brisket, what I got instead was thin sliced deli meat! The only really good part of lunch was the appetizer (hot cheesy artichoke dip). However, location and view was outstanding overlooking the golf course & mountains, and the service was good. So, I will try again but maybe change the time of day for the meal.
Service was terrible and the food was meh for the Wente name. I thought the food would be decent since the restaurant is closed maybe the grill should step up their game a bit.
I have to say, it was a gorgeous day and we sat outside,...when you're having a glass of rose, eating a great lunch, and overlooking the hills of Livermore what more can you ask for? The food was very good. The artichoke dip was TO DIE FOR if you are an artichoke dip fan, otherwise the other appies are great too. Also, the portions are a nice size. Ladies, if you live in the Tri-Valley then you should give it a try - ou wont be disappointed.
Meal great location great. Gratuity included and we were not advised. Tipped on total. Once I realized the mistake I’ve been trying to speak to manager. No call back.
The Grill is a lovely setting. The food is mostly good but not with the prices in my mind. I got the Reuben sandwich. It was large and tasted fine but the bread was grilled so crispy it sliced my mouth all up. I started to dread each bite knowing it would cause more pain
We enjoyed our after-tasting lunch at the Wente Grill. The menu was rather limited. I ordered a hamburger with no bun, since there weren’t any real gluten free items. It was good, but not great.
The food is really good and fresh, the prices may be a bit high for a sandwich or burger, but definitely very good.
It is always a pleasure to dine at the grill. Good food and friendly service. We live close by in the Beautiful Livermore Valley. We were celebrating a dear friend’s 70th birthday.
Wobbly table legs and air compressor to wash golfers shoes was unacceptable. We moved ourselves to another table.Food not worth the money. Charged $3.00 for a slice of bread, really.
BBQ pork was bland. French fries were good.Asian salad uneventful.
There were 4 dining and none were impressed. I expected so much more from a Wente facility.
We live this place for lunch or brunch. They gave a full bar snd if you’re a member, you get a glass of Wente wine with each entree. Service is OK, but friendly. I think it’s a staffing thing. Love the outside seating overlooking the greens.
