Peaceful Livermore winery features daily menus with locally sourced ingredients. We went in late March and the weather was perfect for dining outside. Quiet atmosphere, good service, great wine, beautifully presented dishes.

My husband and I dined at the restaurant at Wente for a night out after getting a sitter. The atmosphere is quiet and charming. I highly recommend going early and getting a special cocktail at the bar. This bartender makes fantastic drinks! Our waiter was attentive but not overly so. The food was flawless and very elegant. I had the... More

Eat outside and it will be great. It is pricey but excellent food and service. Good (not great) job of accommodating food allergies.

I started dining at Wente in 1990. For twenty years I never ad a bad meal and the service was always exceptional. Over the last 3 years it has fallen a notch or two. For me that food is now good instead of amazing. The service is hit or miss, Of course the prices have gone up. While Wente is... More

Excellent meal. Steak with lentils perfectly prepared. Blood orange pannacotta for dessert was outstanding. We came as a business group and were placed in our own room. This worked out very well and our group had a great time. Highly recommend to any business thinking of hosting a dinner here.

Our party of four ate outside and we were delighted, as usual! We started with Wente Chardonnay and it was delectable. Everyone ordered hors d'oeuvres, including a wonderful cheese plate. The Foie Gras was some of the best I have ever had, including France. The main course of pasta was phenomenal and it was perfectly cooked. My wife ordered the... More

If you want to spend a day of wine tasting and enjoy a good Jazz venue, this is your place. They have great concerts indoor and out. Also good food and spirits.

Wente Winery was my first experience visiting a winery in California and it was a lot of fun! My husband's friend took us here as she is a regular. The atmosphere at the winery was really relaxing. We did the legendary flight, which was a mix of white and red wines. The gentlemen that helped us with the tasting, Kevin,... More

Recommendation from our uber driver. We didn't know what to expect And were pleasantly surprised. Beautiful setting , very good service. Soup of the day was excellent. I hesitated at the $22.00 cheesesteak. It was very good.
