What a very special experience we enjoyed from start to finish! We thoroughly enjoyed visiting with Jeff in the tasting room where he helped us discover Nth Degree Pinot Noir. We had a special Happy Birthday menu which was a nice touch and complementary sparkling wine toast before we even ordered. Mark C and his service team were first rate! Fabulous service and of course exceptional food the signature pork chop with seasonal preparation. All in all a very memorable evening, thank you all for making it so special!
Visit of friends from Germany.
Meet up with friends
The food, wine pairing, and service was very good. I had actually called the restaurant and they did advise me that they are no longer serving brunch on Sundays, which was a disappointment as we have been going there for 20 plus years etc. In fact, several customers actually left since they did not know about the change in menus. So I would recommend that the restaurant advise them of the changes.
That being said, both my wife and I had an enjoyable experience and would recommend it to the customers.
Paul was fantastic. Wine Pairing Prix Fixe lunch was a pleasant and totally enjoyable experience!
Delicious food paired with delicious wine! Pork chop with peach chutney was very flavorful!
Just amazing !
We enjoyed wine & a dinner outside under the twinkle lights with the sweet sounds of wedding music just over the divide. Very romantic night to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
My favorite restaurant in the bay area!!!
Great attentive service, not too overbearing. Pork Chop dish is definitely a must have, however, they went a bit heavy on the sauce today. Would definitely recommend this dish along with a few appetizers
Wente never disappoints. We devoured the ribeye and pork chop...both amazing. Big salads to start. Gave us a glass of bubbly to start as it way my wife's birthday. Such a lovely setting!
We celebrated our 33 anniversary dining on the patio, while watching a couple who were celebrating at their wedding reception on the lawn area. It was a beautiful view! The food was amazing. We started with salads. My husband had the wedge with a very tasty dressing, I had the yummy beet salad. The beets were fresh from the nearby garden. For our entrees, my husband enjoyed the pork chop, and I had the delicious filet mignon. The filet was served with a barley based side dish that was amazing. After dinner, we were served a special anniversary dessert. The service was great. It was a memorable meal.
Wonderful Prix fixe menu with wine pairing under the mottled shade of large trees. Attentive service and tasty food.
My wife and I celebrated our 15 year anniversary at Wente. Excellent food, we found our favorite wine on the half price list, and service was spot on. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a romantic dinner, quiet, and staffed by people that know every dish.
The restaurant at Wente is outstanding. The Prix fix was well designed are very good. The main choices were a duck breast over polenta or a beef short rib pasta. The wine pairing was perfect. The pork belly starter was nice as well. Our only complaint is that the optional cheese course was poorly conceived with very little and poor quality cheese.
Great location, food and Service.
Food is good but overpriced. The service does not match the quality of the food. We asked for a wine list and the steward came right over and start telling us about there reduced price wines which were still $100 a bottle. We felt we were getting a high pressure sales pitch like a car dealership. After we order a $60 dollar bottle of wine we received extremely slow service. It was really disappointing as the restaurant has so much potential but does not live up to it.
Wente has found itself again, and the cuisine is back to its level of excellence. But, wow, is it pricey. This will have to be a special occasion destination. The service is impeccable and the ambiance lovely, so we will be back. But, at those prices, only for something really extraordinary.
We have celebrated four straight anniveraries at The Restaurant at Wente and plan to continue indefinitely. The food, wine and staff make it the best restaurant in the East Bay at minimum, possibly the whole Bay Area.
Enough cannot be said about the food, atmosphere, and outstanding service. Dine Tues Weds Thurs and choose one of the half price high end wines. We always walk to our car with happy faces.
Wente had a new wine and food pairing brunch. It was a great experience; and wait staff was excellent
As always, the meal was FABULOUS, I have never been disappointed! Every time the dining experience has always been top-notch and have been well attended to however on this past visit I was disappointed with the waiter. He pushed hordeurves on us three times and three times I had to tell him we were not interested. He then tried to push the wine. We weren’t drinking that night. We asked for bread (took forever) and when it arrived he had brought us three pieces on a plate... on a plate! Not on the standard wooden cutting board. Then he was no where to be seen. We had to ask the “bus boy” for more bread and water, after which the bus boy was very attentive to us... he got the majority of my tip! I’ll go back again but if we get the same waiter as this past time I’ll ask for someone else. Still, great atmosphere, great food and wonderful ambiance.
We were celebrating our anniversary everyone knew and was very polite.
Love Wente Restaurant. One of my favorites. Amazing wine list, great food. Heard your mot doing lunch or brunch anymore.😢 I loved the polenta with the pork chop. I want more.
Dined at Went for my boyfriends birthday. Such a wonderful evening. Warm greeting right when we walked in. I had requested a perimeter table near the window, which they accommodated. Complimentary champagne was served as soon as we were seated. And the menu was personalized with “HappyBirthday”. Nice touches! Food was amazing and our server suggested the perfect wine pairings. Marc, our server, was knowledgeable, friendly, attentive and fun. And, didn’t hurt that his name is the same as the birthday boy. :-)
Great experience all around. Thank you, Wente, for a memorable evening. DH
Wente is a beautiful place to go for special occasions. It is a bit of a drive so we go early or for lunch to take in the bucolic view. Great wine and fabulous food. It never disappoints.
Fantastic waiter and supportive chef as one diner could not eat garlic or onion
Welcoming staff, great menu, attractive venue, noisy but manageable for conversation. Delicious bread, beet salad, Caesar, smoked pork chops, Wagu rib eye, and risotto with shrimp. We loved all our dishes, which were beautifully presented. Old school service that's attentive without being obtrusive. Dinner at the Restaurant at Wente Vineyards is a perfect way to end a day of wine tasting!
The space is absolutely gorgeous. The food options and quality as well as quantity were also superb. And the sommelier and server both demonstrated a knowledge of the wines and proper pairings to our palates which was appreciated. Overall a great experience and a reminder of how much I enjoyed the place before. I won’t need to find an excuse to go back. It is appropriate for a business dinner but also special occasion, date night or just simply lunch/dinner on a tuesday. Ha!
Took my daughter here to celebrate her 10th birthday. It was memorable...food was great and they even printed a personalized menu for her. Great service. Kinda pricey but you get what you pay for.
Delicious food, great atmosphere, exceptional service
Lovely setting amidst the vineyards and huge oaks of the Livermore hills... well worth the drive from EBay...and absolutely wonderful service and wine list. Cocktails were awesome, appetizers fabulous and so were the main courses. In all, a lovely place for a special occasion!
Great experience from start to finish.
A very nice time, food tasty, service was excellent
Everything was fabulous
Excellent service, food always great. however, dessert (Marshmellow/ chocolate cake), just ok. Cake was dry and Marshmellow was stiff and seemed dried out.
Enjoyed our meal very much! Excellent service and food recommendations. However had planned this trip specifically to try the tasting menu for a special birthday and was disappointed it is no longer offered.
Still had a great meal and enjoyed our meal. Everything we had was outstanding
great food and great service as expected at one of our favorite local restaurants.
