New Business. We will try again

Very pleasant staff with a limited brunch/lunch menu. The fries were delicious and the wine pours were generous. Beautiful setting. It is a nice friendly place to escape to, to avoid the restaurants around the shopping. We tend not to go where the sheep are.

If you are looking for the Old Town Wine Bar, it has moved around the corner, Not only that but it has turned into a comfortable and romantic wine location. The owner, Robert, knows his wines and now has a kitchen to offer some perfect dishes to enjoy. The wine list is outstanding for its value and unique selections. Food... More

They moved to their new location on labor day. This is a great venue for them as they now have a bigger kitchen and more amenities. The paninis are still great as well as the atmosphere. Stop by and give them your support. I guarantee they will be swamped at snowbird season and the staff is great!

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
