Celebrating our First Date Anniversary. We eat here a few times a year and have always had good experiences. Including the concert series. The setting is warm, lovely without being too stuffy feeling. We eat on the earlier side so we can see the outdoors, which is lovely and get to see the setting sun with the view and lights. We always find the food very good but this evening the food was above and beyond excellent. The service, with Mark our waiter, was also way, way above and beyond. A super experience!
Chris was wonderfully attentive. We really enjoyed the sublime sea scallops and crudo appetizer.
When we arrive at 5:15pm on Monday night, the restaurant had a very odd smell---something between sewage and Clorox.
Food was mediocre, not terribly warm when it reached our table. Scallops were very salty. I have enjoyed many meals at Wente in the past that were outstanding and truly a memorable dining experience. Something was really missing. Monday night was simply mediocre at best.
Great food and great service, only complaint was I table was next to a large piece of furniture, one of those table that some restaurants stuff in to take full advantage of the space. My wife and I both had the pork belly to start with and the filet . Taste is so fresh and well paired.
Our family gathered here for a post-holiday get together. Most had never been before and all were impressed with the the food, service, wine, and ambience.
Wente has been a favorite of mine as a place to lunch with friends especially in warmer weather outside. It is always a pleasure to linger over the wonderful food.
We especially enjoyed the fish appetizer, the cheese and charcuterie plate, and pork chop, but everything was tasty.
New Year's Eve fixed menu, great meal with great wine pairing.
We celebrated our anniversary at Wente for the 2nd year in a row. This time we had the tasting menu. The food and the wine pairing were good with a couple of exceptions. I was not fond of 1 of the wines and the dessert was a bit heavy for our taste. The pork tenderloin, which was not on the main menu, but only with the tasting menu, was beyond fabulous. Great stuff.
Visit the Tasting Room across the courtyard before 6:30 pm. Elegant restaurant atmosphere for special occasions or just a fine dinner experience.
Excellent food. Loved coming here until they stopped selling gift cards at Costco! They had raised their prices, now too expensive without the Costco gift cards.
We've been going to Wente's since they first opened. For years it has been my favorite restaurant in the Valley. Now, every time we go the portions seem smaller and the price is higher. The food is still great but the value is not so much.
