Uncle Yu's at the Vineyard

Reviewed By dnwrlw - nelson11

I visited Unle Yu's in December, 2017 with my wife and son. The restaurant has a great atmosphere, and the service is very good. I was very disappointed with my "Beef Aged with Orange Peel" because, other than greasy tasting, it was pretty much flavorless. However, my wife loved the "Lemon Chicken", and my son spoke highly of his "Mongolian Beef" dish. Perhaps it was an off-day for my order. In any case, I would certainly give them another try.

Denica's Real Food Kitchen

Reviewed By Danielle D

Other than no mimosas (no alcohol at all), it's the best breakfast place in Livermore. The Rome via Paris is our favorite by far. There's a great outdoor patio, where they allow dogs. The only downfall is that they will not let you reserve tables...MoreThank you for your great review and rating, Danielle. I am so happy to hear that you find Denica's to be the best breakfast place in Livermore! I hope that you will join us again soon. With Love, Denica (Owner)

Beautiful grounds with several spots to walk or just sit. For those into wine they have a tasting room near the restaurant with a terrace to sit and sample or just sit. The restaurant is beautiful as well..I would give 5 ***** for service from the lounge thru till the final goodby. Food I Think depends on what you order. Seafood dishes weren’t special. The pork chop on the other hand was incredible as were the accompaniments. Tried several deserts but wasn’t up to par. Stay with the sorbets. We will absolutely return when n the area..

Campo di Bocce

Reviewed By gregt1657 - Livermore

On Friday January 12, 2018 I arranged for our company's executive team to participate in Bocce starting at 5 PM followed by a group dinner at 6:30 PM. We had 8 for Bocce followed by 10 for dinner.

We were expecting to have to play Bocce on an outside court (due to the indoor courts were booked all week) however when we got there indoor court 4 was available so we didn't have to play outdoors. The execs were from Tokyo, Taipei, Chicago, Raleigh NC and Honolulu and had never played Bocce before. They ended up having a great time along with an excellent Italian dinner (individually ordered) so the event was a great success.

Waiters and assistants at Campo di Bocce in Livermore were very helpful, attentive and flexible. I can strongly recommend holding corporate events at Campo di Bocce in Livermore.

First Street Ale House

Reviewed By Em M - Livermore

Excellent location in downtown area. Plenty of seating inside and outside. Some seating in the bar area. Quick and efficient wait staff. Atmosphere can be very loud during peak lunch and dinner times. Nice variety of menu selections, brews and beer. Weekend breakfast buffet is OK. Kitchen closes early. Don't miss trying the onion rings. Family friendly and even when busy my wait time has been less than 30 mins.

Demitri's Taverna

Reviewed By JQuilter - Noblesville, Indiana

Opa! Start with saganaki, the classic flaming cheese. Then try the lemony chicken rice soup. Creamy and tasty. The rest is up to you but we chose the gyros sandwich with pasta salad and the Greek seasoned burger. Both were great. Friendly and efficient service. Beer and wine offered with several of each from Greece. Sadly, no room for dessert

Sauced BBQ & Spirits

Reviewed By Barbara L - Albuquerque, New Mexico

Went here for lunch. Shocked when I opened the menu. Everything was extremely expensive. I think the main problem is that they don't have a lunch menu. The 2 meat choice was $25, but one of the meats could be 1/2 a chicken - certainly too much for lunch. They also have absolutely no healthy choices. I opted for a burger with not bun. It was very good, but I probably won't eat here again.

Zephyr Grill and Bar

Uniquely inviting with an "aroused Americana" presentations, Zephyr Grill and Bar invites you to sample creations by Executive Chef Jesus Martinez. Atmosphere, warmth and hospitality that will soon become a Livermore Valley icon.

Reviewed By Hitokiri_Battosai - Brentwood, California

Based on reviews on this site, I went to this restaurant expecting a much better meal than the one I ate. The food was not bad, but it was not good either. I got the burger and my medium burger was tasteless. I got the butter squash soup and that was tasty. The service was very slow. The place has a nice atmosphere and the restaurant is very clean.

WOULD'NT RECOMMEND - Livermore has lots of good options. I would recommend going down town. This was not very good. I chose the best cut - COWBOY - it is a bone in spencer cut steak that was very fatty and grizzly
