The restaurant food and service were impeccable. It's a bit pricey but is worth it! Also have a good wine selection, including non-Wente wines.

The Restaurant at Wente Vineyards with its outside seating looking at the vineyard is a treat. The food is farm to table. Slow-Roasted Chicken Salad with buttermilk dressing sprinkled with herbs from the back garden is exceptional. Caesar salad is delicious. Little touches like tomato...More

We went for a wine tasting but decided to get brunch first. The food and service were outstanding. We will definitely visit for dinner another time. Great dining experience.

The views are beautiful, and the food is quite tasty. I went here on a business dinner and had the Halibut. It was quite tasty. However, even for California, the prices are quite high. The service was excellent, though.
