My husband and I made a brunch reservation at Wente Restaurant as a small Valentine's Day celebration/promotion celebration for my husband. Our reservation was at 10:30, right as the dining room opened. The hostess led us to a small room away from the large family ahead of us, which was considerate. Our waiter's name was Kevin, and when we had a question about making a small change to the brunch pre fixe, he was able to accommodate us with no issue. He also gave us great detail about the various menu items, which are changed monthly.

My husband and I both loved what we chose on the menu. For drinks, he had the mimosa and I had the red sangria. The next course was an apple cinnamon muffin, but Kevin was able to get my husband a small plate of fruit in its place. Afterwards, I had the baby beets while my husband had the ceasar salad, and the for the final course, I had the eggs benedict and my husband had the Berkshire pork chop. We were thrilled with every single course. The portions were generous during the final course, but we were able to pack up the leftovers no problem (and had them for dinner the same night!). We loved our experience overall and we plan on going back for the next special occasion!

The meal and service was average and expensive. This was historically I nice special restaurant. The menu is now limited and our food was warm, not hot. Scallops fishy, pork chop had too much carbon and fat.

Sorry to see this gem deteriorate.

Great food but only small number of choices compared to the past. No longer any local olive oil nor can you order a single glass of the Wente Champagne to start the meal with. Ambiance and service all to the very good Wente levels.

We sat at the bar for a drink first. Top notch bar service!

We were seated and the service was excellent!

My girlfriend had the butternut squash ravioli with truffle and I had the tasting menu. The highlight was the butternut squash ravioli for both of us! Excellent dish! We had the beet salad which was also excellent but a bit heavy on the rich goat cheese. The tasting menu was good with one minor issue with an undercooked flank steak dish but it was corrected quickly (and they gave us a free dessert). The dessert that came with the tasting menu was the chocolate mouse pictured below and was top notch! The other dessert was a very pretty panna cotta dish but the gelatin was just too over powering. It needed more fresh ingredients to cut the gelatin or lighten it, like some fresh fruit, and certainly they need to remove the extra gelatin on the plate used as a garnish.

The interior and ambiance were delightful. We'd definitely go back again.

As always, Wente provides excellence in wine, food, service and ambiance. If you want a special treat away from the normal restaurants, give Wente a try. My Husband and I have been coming here for years and are never disappointed. Become a Wente Entertainment Club Member and start enjoying the extra’s when you visit. The card is well worth the price if you make Wente one of your favorite Restaurant destinations. 😊

Always a treat, and always a "special occasion" to visit and dine at Went Vineyards. Very happy with beautiful location, attentive and friendly service, and first-class food at Went. Treat yourself.

Entirely unsatisfactory this time. Ordered the prix-fixe for brunch, started with a sweet muffin, we all decided to save that for last, which we mentioned to the waiter as he brought them. Then we waited. And waited. And waited. 45 minutes after sitting I had to go to the front desk to ask for our salad course. Finally arrives. Cleared. Then we wait, and wait, and wait for our mains. Its now one hour and twenty minutes later and we are getting our eggs. 1:20 for eggs! By then we had more or less finished our wine on an empty stomach, which made us feel a little blah, and we had pretty much lost our appetite. Left us feeling grumpy the rest of the day, for 300+ for 4 people. Never again. To top it off, we wandered into the winery building after since that's where the member tastings were last time and were more or less told we were trespassing on private property and to leave immediately. Went to the tasting room and it reeked of stale sweat. Picked up shipment, got home, terminated membership.

Service was outstanding, nice to see people still care about customer service. Food was excellent as well. If you are Wente wine club member, this is a must do. As a bonus we got to witness a marriage proposal. Very nice

I was there one Saturday to propose to my GF. I called very last minute and everybody was so nice and helpful and totally helped me out with everything. Staff was super friendly and very low key with keeping everything a secret. It was a amazing experience and i totally recommend this place (tasting and restaurant) to everybody!

Service is excellent, ambiance is also excellent. You should go during daylight to take full advantage of the vineyard setting. Food ranges to quite good (appetizers) to just fair (my main entree consisted of a huge slab of meat placed over a small bed of vegetables).

Decided to try Wente again after a few years. I’ve always liked the atmosphere but the food has disappointed me every time I go. This was no exception. Pork chop was 1/3 fat and the steak tartare was terrible. The chef needs to pay attention to what goes out of the kitchen.
