Have been here a few times a year for the last five years, for both lunches and dinners, either for family or work events. Very consistent and above par for it's price.

Watch out they add a gratuity and don't tell you. Food is not as good as the price. I'd go somewhere else.

Absolutely Wonderful. Golf course is Outstanding. Winery is one of the best in Livermore CA. You will not be unhappy. The wedding we attended at Wente was one of the best I have ever participated in over my 56 years. Food quality was spot on and staff service was prompt and courteous. I would recommend this facility to anyone for... More

I was treated to the best meal of my business trip by friends, here at Wente. One of the few places with decent organic wholesome food in normal portion sizes. The plating was great, the flavours delicious and all from the farm. I even had beef - as it is grass-fed, hormone & antibiotic free. The wine was really good,... More

The setting is quite lovely with the green hills and golf course. Our meal was delicious-pork belly, scallops, hamburgers-everything was cooked and presented beautifully. Service was friendly and attentive. We had a table with a loud child nearby so that certainly detracted from the experience but not the fault of the restaurant-it's a high-end spot so I'm not sure why... More

This is relatively new place in Brentwood. Lots of ambiance, very good food, very good service. Either the best restaurant in town or one of the very very few. Not inexpensive but food, service and ambiance worth it.

This is the best meal I have had in the States this year. A lovely salad was an alternative to a fantastic soup. The signature pork chop was great although way too big to finish. The puddings looked nice and our meal was complimented by the house wine (which is made here). The only reason I would not give it... More

Good food is served here without hesitation. Service is OK but highly compensated by the sorroundings of this nice restaurant. Deserves a reward for their bar efforts!
