Great evening. I know the menu changes so this may not apply - pork chop was delicious. Bone marrow appetizer - never thought I would say this or try it - amazing. Great service. Great ambience. Highly recommend.
Wente remains our favorite restaurant in the San Francisco Bay Area. The location is lovely, and the drive there prepares one for a special evening. The servers are gracious, and the food always is delicious. We look forward to our next visit!
Always a relaxing and satisfying experience, all around.
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.
Thanks , we will be back
Great Food. Pork Chops are a must! Desserts are creative and wines are spectacular!
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.
