This place is a really nice upscale restaurant with great food and they are dedicated to wine. Then why is the wine stored at room temp 74 degrees the days I went there? As a big wino I was really disappointed with this. They need to figure out a cool place to store the wine.

The food however, was wonderful. My wife's stuffed pork loin with Brussels sprout hash was great. My funds pasta with ricotta salta and tomato sauce was... More

We recently attended a catered affair at The Wine Bar. The decor is elegant but cozy, the view is lovely, the service is extremely attentive, and the food is outstanding. We look forward to going back to try their regular menu.

You might have a hard time finding this gem of a bar. It's situated between Christine's Italian restaurant and The Harborside Grill. Take the stairs to the top landing and be pleasantly surprised. We were a party of 4 and sat at the bar for cocktails at Happy Hour before going to dinner in Red Bank. The young lady bartender... More

Went for our anniversary. It is a great little space tucked away upstairs on First Avenue. We made a reservation (Friday night) & when we arrived, we were given the option to sit at our table or have a drink first at the bar. We opted for the drink & sat for about a half hour & relaxed. It was... More

From the service to the food to the atmosphere and decor was wonderful. Would recommend for couples and groups. Really enjoyed the whole experience. Can't wait to go back on a night there is music.
