Lovely catered affair

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.

Food was great, bartenders were awesome, space was beautiful. This was my first time at The Wine Bar and I was impressed. The wedding was on the upper level.

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.

From the outside you can't tell what a gem awaits you on the inside. The décor is inviting and relaxing. The drinks are imaginative and very tasty!! The food is very enjoyable as well. This would be a great place for a small, intimate gathering (i.e., wedding, etc).

Found this place after taking a stroll through town on a Friday late afternoon. We were curious what the wine bar looked like inside and was pleasantly surprised by the sophisticated decor. We were immediately greeted and welcomed by the staff. I decided to sit on the comfortable couches and order some delicious cocktails and tapas. All were refreshing and... More

I felt like we went back in time to the 40's, The food was devine, The atmosphere was serene. The music took me back to another space and time. Trish Mata has a way of singing that is truly unique and yet not a copycat of other singers from that era. She makes you feel like you are in that... More
