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!

Prior visit had outdoor table and everything was perfect. This time sat indoors- could not hear one another without shouting. Good and service were excellent.

The set up required a little walk from reception to vows back to outdoor dinner. A quick look at restaurant dining had a Screaming Eagle Cab on wine list. Reception fare was very good quality, prawns to look for. Buffet meal was also well prepared. Grounds are vary soothing. Well maintained.

Nice ambience! Way overpriced lunch menu with too heavy food for lunch. Confused service. The beet salad was very strange. The coffee in it didn't work. The truffle risotto was way too salty and therefore disappointing.

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.
