My sisters and I (6 of us total) had the 10:30 am brunch time frame, which is the first time slot of the day, and we were able to witness a small wedding ceremony outside of the mansion. Additionally, it was not an issue to find parking, though the folks that came in the later afternoon must’ve had issues since the parking filled up when we left around 12:30 pm. The property is very beautiful and perfect for weddings. We ran into the groom that had his wedding there last night and he also gave awesome reviews of the place. Many beautiful spots to take pictures. The hostess and workers were very nice. Greeted all of us and encouraged us to tour the mansion (before and after the brunch). The food was pretty good. The pear vinaigrette and salmon were delicious! The vinaigrette goes well with anything, not just the salad. And the salmon were perfectly cooked. I went back for seconds and didn’t event care for the chimichurri chicken because the salmon was just perfection! Would definitely go back with my husband for a brunch date!

Wise villa was a great place for my birthday lunch. We sat on the patio overlooking the vineyards. It was beautiful! Chris, our waiter, took great care of us and he was funny too! I had the risotto. It was pretty good! The rest of my family had the Caprese Chicken Sandwich, which they said was delicious! The French fries were bomb. We also We had a bottle of Tempranillo which was really nice. I would definitely recommend Wise Villa!

I always enjoy coming here and I did come in on a playoff game which I was surprised. They had no happy hour and they also had a limited menu which surprised me because during all the other Kings games it’s not like this but all in all I still enjoy it, and definitely will be back

Entire staff was welcoming and supportive. Our reserved table was ready and we were seated immediately. Our server was very knowledgeable about our menu choices, patiently answering my questions about ingredients and how dishes were prepared. He was very attentive to how our dishes were presented to us. To the chef; the plating of the food was very attractive and arrived at perfect temperature, ready to be devoured… and we did ! Delicious to the last bite. We enjoyed our special night out. Thank you all :D

Great late lunch experience! We stayed longer than expected due to an intense, passing storm, but not a bad place to hang out and wait out the rain.
