Last evening was my first visit to this wine industry gastro-pub. The restaurant is sited in a brand new industrial building used for the local grape crush and stainless fermentation.

Arriving at Terravant Winery restaurant my husband and I were both impressed with the looks of the warehouse transformed into a beautiful wine bar/ restaurant. The hostess was friendly and our server arrived to explain how the self serve "Wall of Wines" worked, we were still excited and impressed. While my husband was exploring the many wines offered along the... More

Good atmosphere! They give you a card to try different wines from a tap, very cool! You can select a taste, glass, etc. Futuristic:) We went at 5:00..not too crowded, new waitress, kinda slow....We ordered appetizers, yuppie crack...delicious & bacon jalapeno also good! I didn't think the prices were good...pricey:(

After the customer is seated, wait at least 20 minutes before serving the first drink order: check. Feature unique self-service wine dispensers, but verify that many of the bottles are empty and unavailable: check. If a guest orders both an appetizer and an entree, be absolutely certain to deliver both to the table at exactly the same time: check. Never... More

We've dined here yearly for 4 years now and been amazed by its decline. It started as a hip wine bar and restaurant serving Tapas - small meals to share. We loved it and the self-serving wine bar. Now the tapas offerings are very limited and the rest of the menu isn't very expansive. The choices are fewer and yet... More

Wine bar? Foodie food source? No, it's both. We just returned from an evening at Terravant and really enjoyed it. Their "wine wall" has a good line up of mostly local wines. We appreciated that we could select from three portion sizes -- taste, half glass and full glass. That meant we could easily get up and select a different... More

This was a really cool place. Loved the idea of the tasting wall where you could pay by the tasting or half or full glass. With a big selection of local wines was really cool. The food was good too. The Yupie Crack was really really good and the tuna tartar was good. Needed a little salt but was good.... More

For us, the main attraction is the Wine Wall - you get a class and an ersatz "credit card" and you get to pick tastings from a selection of about 25-30 different wines. The price differs based on whether you want a 1 oz., 3 oz. or 5 oz. pour (or something like that), you insert your card, you press... More

Visited for a SatUrday dinner. Did not have a reservation, but were able to be seated immediately. Service was satisfactory. Food was very good and reasonably priced. Salad was huge--enough for two! Live music was a bonus. Overall, very good experience.

This restaurant looks and feels like a very trendy warehouse with wine bottles on the walls and big windows overlooking the large stainless steel tanks. However the food is fresh and tasty, service was good and the the wine card that allowed you to taste as many wines as you liked was a great idea. There was also a great... More
