The Wente restaurant is very good but very expensive. It's a nice place to finish up a day of visiting the Livermore Valley wineries. Definitely a special occasion restaurant!

The menu changes daily, so we always get to try something new and different. I've never had a bad meal at Wente. The service is always superb and you can't beat the location. It's a perfect location for brunch, lunch or dinner. I highly recommend.

Everyone say they have great hamburgers. But to me is only ok. The soup is good but not great. Overall all. The 4 star is not for the food is for the service and atmosphere.

After a great day on the golf course here, my friend and I were joined by our wives for a delicious dinner at the Restaurant. The menu has something for everyone and the quality is top notch. The service was great and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

The setting is marvelous, with outside seating available in good weather, food outstanding, and pricing ok. This is one of my favoritr places in Northern California. One of only 2-3 equivalent, high end places that come to mind. Also nice is the golf course grill. Setting very nice, looking out over the greens, food is also excellent, and pricing is... More

I asked for recommendations from several people while I was in town and every person said "Wente is the best restaurant in town." While it was good, it was not the best. Service was attentive. The food was good, but very overpriced for what they provide. The champagne was excellent (the best I found in the Livermore Valley). You will... More

The Restaurant at Wente is a romantic marvel in a beautiful vineyard setting. The restaurant has it's own organic garden and many of the greens come from there, making for not only delicious, but also healthy (some, not all) fare.

Menu reflects what is fresh for the season. Service..Service..Service Leave your cell phone in the car and let Wente pamper you for the night. I mean it...don't even pull it out for the Food Picture that you will want to send to all your friends...Taste meets art....
