I found this place on a walk through the neighborhood a few months ago. The ambiance is very warm and it's such a cozy place to go in the winter. Their house wine selection is quite good. Their happy hour is one of the best in the neighborhood. The house wine is quite cheap but delicious and of... read more

I enjoyed a well prepared almond dish with a lovely Macon Chardonnay. The dessert was three Creme brulees-- the Classic was excellent, the espresso delicious but the pistachio not so great..

I travel to Arlington fairly regularly for business, and this is where I go when I have to eat solo and can't be bothered to go further afield. I usually sit at the bar for a glass of wine and a small plate or two. The wine selection is very nice. My only advice is to skip the house selections... More

Having never visited before - a friend and I ventured one chilly night in early January 2015. Having arrived with a reservation - the hostess wanted to seat us immediately in front of the door. My friend asked for another table - pointing to one in the corner, however we were told that it was a 4-top and we weren't... More

After reading the reviews, I thought I found something really special, more than just the high end chains and well known places. What we had was very good food, but overall the food and experience was not as good as I hoped for. The location is not easy to find as others commented, and on a cold rainy night that... More

We arrived and it was empty which didn't bother me....I was early...5pm. I learned from reading the menu that you can order wines by the glass or if you got the bottle, you can get it from the selection of wines they have on display with a corkage fee as the wines in the place were there for "off sale"....

Good food, good wine, good service. A little noisy as it seems to be very popular. Wait staff was attentive if not totally knowledgeable. Didn't matter, and we were very satisfied with the dining experience. Wonderful bread and well prepared food.

Lena did a fabulous job putting together a happy hour and dinner menu for a family birthday party with many generations attending. The food and wine were great and the atmosphere was casual but elegant. It was good to have the fountain outside for some people to escape to with a toddler! Been there several times for outdoor dining when... More

Had a lovely tapas and wine dinner. They have a fairly large wine bottle collection that you can walk around and select your bottle(s). Waiter was very nice and efficient.
