Great location, service lacking.

Great location at the base of the hotel I stayed at. The waiter knew a fair bit about the wine list and was able to answer any questions I had. Once the restaurant got busy; the waiter pretty much left us in the corner with empty glasses. At one point, he did return and I was in the middle of... read more

We wandered into this place on a whim, and liked it so much that we came back the next day. It's a neighborhood wine bar, with a decent (not overwhelming) selection of italian wines and and decent mixed plates. We had red wine, and a mixed plate of elk, cheese and olives - they were all lovely. Pricey, but within... More

We stumbled on this gem as we were heading to another choice that both of us were not really keen about. We were at the end of a skiing holiday and looking for something different with atmosphere and 'small plate' menu. We had a lovely evening and ended up finishing a bottle of red while slowly eating a selection of... More

I stumbled upon this lovely Italian wine bar (which also serves food) They staff was friendly, the antipasto and prosecco was very good. I enjoyed myself and I would definitely come back again next time I'm in Vancouver.

Don't bother unless you are desperate for a drink or want to chat to the staff. To start positively: The service was good (staff seemed friendly & competent) however the only other good thing I can say is that the antique looking store cupboard at the front is kind of nice.... Summary: Small and unimaginative wine list which is exceptionally... More

If you are looking for a cozy wine bar where you can talk with friends, this is NOT it. It looks like a fun place with loud music, but was far more cocktail bar than wine bar...

Eight of us walked in for a glass of wine and the place was empty. The bartender was no where in sight and when he did come out he didn't say a word or acknowledge us. We asked for water to start and he served us in dirty glasses. We decided to leave and he laughed in our faces.

Rating is based on the bar alone. Bartenders there are super nice and are quick to make something new for you if you don't like one of their creations. They have some very unique drinks here, as in raw egg drinks, give it a try. Not a bad place, just not my cup of tea.

The wall is covered in bottles if alcohol; how will the barman ever reach, you think. But he does, and he produces some unique cocktails, well blended and a pleasure on the palate. There is a good selection of food too: oyster specials, charcuterie cuts (including elk), cheeses. There is a different special every day.
