    We had a wonderful, slow dinner date and it was a fantastic experience. We did it up with flights, wine, dinner and desserts. Food and wine were truly incredible, we left nothing on our plates. I had the chicken cacciatore and husband had the duck- we will be thinking about those dishes for a long time. Thanks for a great evening, Wise Villa! We’ll be back!

    Had outside seating so we could watch the sunset. It is a beautiful view. They also had a person with a telescope who was very knowledgeable and shared his view of the moon with us! Great food, had the spinach arugula salad with prawns, so 😋 yummy. Of course the wine is always wonderful

    Only Placer winery with restaurant open on weekdays. Food and ambience were excellent; service was leisurely but attentive. By-the-glass wine selection was limited, but wine flights were intriguing.

    Great food, great time. We sat for almost 30 minutes without being greeted. We kept trying to catch an eye but just were smiled at so realized no one was assigned to our table. We got someone assigned to us but then waiting just over 20minutes for our appetizers. That wait would have been fine if it wasn’t in addition to our wait with our server so that was really disappointing. Entrees and dessert were great. Great view and atmosphere. You can see that they have sound absorbing pads on the wall but they need more on the ceiling. It’s louder than it should be inside. Overall, it’s a great vibe with good food.

    We made a reservation for inside for 6:30 pm but didn't get seated until after 8 pm. I think they took walk-ins that they shouldn't have because several reservations were backed up. After waiting over an hour, they kept trying to seat us outside, but it was 90+. They were apologetic and service was good once we got seated but we didn't get to really sit and savor our meal because by the time we got our dinner, everyone was leaving so staff was literally standing around waiting for us to leave. I think a complimentary appetizer, glass of wine, or dessert should have been offered since we waited over an hour and a half, AND it was a bday dinner...but nope, nada. I'd go back to see if the experience is better since we went the day before Mother's Day...but this being our first experience, if it were on a normal Saturday, it would cause us to not return.

    As you approach the vineyard, the gentle rustle of the grapevines in the breeze sets a tranquil backdrop for an exceptional wine-tasting experience. The staff welcomes you with a genuine smile, offering a personalized journey through their selection of fine wines.

    I stopped for lunch and wasn't able to get the outside table reserved, so I chose to sit at the bar. The staff were great and the salmon blt was delicious. I was hoping to get 1/2 of the arugula salad, but they only offered a ceaser side, so lunch was more expensive than expected. The arugula salad was delicious 😋 Over all a fairly good experience.

    Food was fantastic as was Christian our waiter. The wines, however, were so-so. Not so distinguishable, in my opinion, from each other. BEAUTIFUL setting in which to enjoy the vineyard, have a great meal and a glass of wine. If I had to choose I would say the Sangiovese

    This place never disappoints my expectations. From great food, wine, and ambiance it’s truly a hidden gem! The sunset from the patio is icing on the cake. Another layer of why this place is such a great find. This time I went with my friends as an impromptu for wine Wednesday and we’re all so glad we did. From appetizers to dessert every item was exquisite!! Ofcourse the wine was delish!!

    Wise villa was a great place for my birthday lunch. We sat on the patio overlooking the vineyards. It was beautiful! Chris, our waiter, took great care of us and he was funny too! I had the risotto. It was pretty good! The rest of my family had the Caprese Chicken Sandwich, which they said was delicious! The French fries were bomb. We also We had a bottle of Tempranillo which was really nice. I would definitely recommend Wise Villa!

    We had a very enjoyable and peaceful lunch overlooking the vineyard. He had the prime rib and I had the salmon BLT. Both were delicious. For dessert we shared shortbread cookies topped with French vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, blueberries, and a strawberry slice. We will definitely return for the atmosphere and ambiance.

    Went here for a Saturday night dinner. Overall the grounds are beautiful and we usually really enjoy it. The wine is great. However, the service and food were bad this time. Our entrees came out cold, which explains why we waited 30 minutes for them after the salad plate was taken away. Service was generally absent, not follow up, no check in until time for check. So, basically overpriced cold steak and mashed potatoes with no refills and no care. So bad probably will not return.

    Gorgeous venue and delicious food. Unfortunately upon arrival we had to wait 30min past our reservation time to be seated, overheard kitchen workers overwhelmed and frustrated at each other, and then received our food about 45 min after finally ordering. Our waitress was very kind but we maybe saw her twice.I think there was an understaffing issue on the day we came but it definitely affected our overall experience. I was hopeful for better service bc the food and venue was great!

    We arrived a few minutes before our reservation time and had to wait about 15 min because they were short of staff. The table for two was near the bar area of the dining area and next to an aisle. The noise level was high. We ordered after about 30 min and waited another 45 min for the food. The food was good the prices are high. There wasn't much ambience from where we sat. The dining area is very nice but given a choice I would choose another table location. The wine was excellent and we would give it another try.

    We are from ND and this is the second time to Wise. Must be good to do it again. Only one comment, Ceasar salad had very little flavor. So it was an off Ceasar day. :)
