My husband & were greeted upon entering. The owner Joan was helpful in choosing a white wine for a warm evening. They had accoustic guitarist playing classic rock...great evening with a cozy feel. Try the roasted beet salad with grilled chicken...delicious!

A local friend and I ate here at his recommendation. We ate in the bar area which we thought less crowded than the dining area. Excellent experience. Fun atmosphere.

.....we had considered eating in this Bistro on a number of occasions and finally decided to go for dinner. The menu is very limited but that a side, when the food was brought out to us it we were both very disappointed. The food was ok tasting but lacked imagination and presentation. With so much strong competition in the area... More

We enjoyed picking out our own bottle, Force of Nature, sitting down to a table catching up with some friends in from out of town.The wine was priced at a premium but far better than a typical restaurant would charge. Our mistake was in ordering food. The tri tip sandwich consisted of a rather small piece of thinly cut meat... More

Stopped by this inviting place with high top tables, a bar, and outside seating for lunch. The place is a restaurant/bar on one side and a wine shop on the other. The servers were very friendly and the experience was positive enough that we came back the same night for dinner. The lunch and dinner menus are limited, so if... More

We loved this place and went twice. Fun spot with lots of energy inside--obviously regular patrons enjoying the atmosphere. We sat on the patio both times and had great meals that were flavourful and full of fresh tasty ingredients. Salads and sandwiches were creative and well presented. Wine list extensive, flights of varieties of wines available were delicious! Wine store... More

This is a nice bar attached to a wine shop. You can actually select a bottle of wine from the shop and drink it in the bar with no corkage fee, so it is very reasonable. They have a limited menu but our flat bread pizzas were delicious and served quickly. I had a "flight" with 3 different tasters of... More

Service, wine, food, setting all very good. The four of us each had a flight and shared a lot of small plates, all for $115- pretty good value. They also sell what they serve retail at very reasonable prices. We all really enjoyed this and it was a great night out. Highly recommend the Zin flight (the Opollo is tremendous),... More

The wine was good, but the clam chowder was the best I've ever had; huge chunks of clam & lots of them. I wish we had sat outside instead of near the bar as some of the locals got too rowdy, & a music groupy took flash photos most of the night.
