"Good food, portions. A little on the loud side, service isn't that great. Wine pours are small."

"We've lived in the area for about 9 months and never ate at Wence's until this week. What a find. Who Knew! The menu is limited enough that the food is really, really good and very creative. While I had the fish and chips - how mundane - my wife had the sea bass which was served on a bed of shrimp, clams, and mussels with a nice broth. How decadent! We will definitely be going back to this neighborhood gem - and soon!"

"Love the food! We have tried many dishes here and everyone of them have been most delicious. Fish is always fresh. Filet Mignon melts in your mouth as the Ribeye steak. So many different flavors keep your taste buds wanting more. The lobster chowder is fantastic, you actually get nice bite size pieces in it. The specials are never a disappointment.
The chef has done a fantastic job in his creations and the staff are always friendly!

"We live locally and have had many fine meals here. But brought friends for dinner and one of our party had a good meal but the others were not great. First problem was they brought three salads out but our friend who ordered oysters had to wait until we were all almost done. Then two of us got our entrees and it took Almost 10 minutes for the other two. when it did come my husbands steak was not only super rare but cold. My steamed clams were so small you couldn't taste them over the heavely seasoned Sauce."

"From the warm, welcoming waitress whose experience, attentiveness and thoughtfulness precipitate the diner's needs before the diner even perceives them; to the simple but satisfying menu, Wence's is a comfort spot for local convenience and old-fashioned good food. The salads are freshly made with flavors produced by fresh herbs and hand-picked ingredients. I had a mac & cheese entrée that melted in my mouth. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal and the price was a bargain."

"We were a group of 6 and two were kids. We were seated in a reasonable time frame but no one came for quite a while to take our drink orders. The service was very slow in general. No complimentary bread offered and then they didn't put the kids order in so when our food came, there was none for the kids. Server didn't even notice. We were seated at 6:30 and no food until 7:25. That is a long time for kids to wait. I would not recommend this place for kids, however, it would be nice for a night out with friends where you wanted to take your time. The food was beautifully presented and all very good. They did not charge us for the kids meal and gave us a complimentary dessert."

"Heard good things, decided to try them on New Year's Eve. Menu on the web was useless. They changed and shortened everything for the holiday -- giving only about half the choices... AND THEY RAISED ALL PRICES ON EACH DISH! Not cool, considering we had less to choose from than what we thought when we booked. I have seen other restaurants do this for holidays, but it's usually for a chef package with a deal on good foods, or they give to charity. This restaurant did neither -- just cut choices and raised prices. Not impressed. Also louder than I expected for a "candle light" type restaurant. The service was pretty quick and the food itself was excellent... but they should have updated their website with what they intended to do on the holiday."

"This is one of my favorite restaurants. I was unaware that they had a special Christmas Eve menu. It was not mentioned on open table and I didn't see it on their web site when I looked at the menu. Our reservation was for seven people and I felt bad that they were forced to purchase a starter and a desert. It's simply too much food for a lot of people and more money than they were planning on spending."

"Wence's has been a favorite for several years. The food is nicely prepared and some is fairly inventive. Prices are very reasonable. The ONLY qualification we have (and we have commented on it in prior reviews) is that due to a variety of factors of restaurant design/surfaces the ambient noise level is very high. When my wife and I dine there we generally sit next to each other rather than across from each other to make conversation easier. For some reason the ambient noise level is a problem even with relatively few tables occupied. Open table only has "energetic" as the highest noise level. This is above energetic - it is LOUD."

"We had a lovely time and wonderful food. We were so happy to see oysters on the menu. I have been to lunch at Wences but not dinner and the menu was great as were the specials. They also have some nice small plates. The location is great for after an early movie in Pleasant Hill."
