Went there with three friends for beer and appetizers after a round of golf. We just had the flatbread, wings, and fries. the flatbread was just OK. The fries were great and the wings were not bad.

I have eaten here several times, and have always enjoyed the environment, service, and food. Favorite dish is the Double Cut Pork Chop, which is normally set on a pile of polenta, with different fruit based chutneys on top.

Title says it all. This experience is from several years ago, so the portion may be larger now. Nice quiet location.

We gathered with our son's girlfriend's family for a first-time meeting on a beautiful day in June. We wine tasted first, and then had a great lunch. The food at Wente never disappoints, and the setting just adds to the experience!
