Fantastic food (small plates selection) - started off with a martini with blue cheese stuffed olives and had small plates throughout my visit. I only wish I had another day to try more of the menu. Wine selection is great, although the one con is that they lacked a selection of aperitifs and other dessert wines. Based on their desserts,... More

Had a great lunch here the other day with friends. Nice atmosphere and incredible selection of wine for sale. Two of us had kale salads, which were excellent; the others ordered beet salads and said they were yummy.

Great selection of wine and a great place to grab a bite. Very casual but terrific that you can grab a bottle off the shelf and enjoy it at a small table with a date or friends. Would highly recommend.

After dinner I went with a new friend to 3rd Corner for a night cap and a snack for her since she was just getting off work and was starving. She ordered some flatbread in which I had a slice which was amazing! There's a very friendly environment and great service, and it's very open - not a bad seat... More

Hubby and I wanted to share a 10 taste, I would taste 5 whites while he tasted the 5 reds. We were told that we could not share the tasting. Ok, so we would each pay the $10, but I only want white, he only wants red. Do you get 10 tastings? No, you only get 5 for the price... More

One end of this restaurant is a very good full service wine shop, and you are invited to purchase any bottle and they will serve it for a $5 corkage fee. Makes the selection more fun than choosing from a wine list! Food was excellent - don't miss the buttermilk brined port chop. It was perfectly cooked and I had... More

For a casual, relaxed dining experience that offers a great atmosphere and a somewhat eclectic menu that consistently delivers, it really is hard to beat this wine bar and bistro in Palm Desert. Add to that a focus on “farm fresh” seasonal produce and an extensive wine selection, at unbeatable prices, a knowledgeable sommelier and friendly staff and you have... More

The idea of meandering through a wine shop and carrying the bottle back to the table for dinner is new to us. The food was very good although the pork schnitzel could have fed 2 , and the service was excellent. So was the wine! We were waited on by Natalie who was quite entertaining.

Select your favorite wine when you enter - it will then be brought to your table, and you can plan your menu selection go go with your wine - or place your order- and then select your wine to match. Great, helpful wait staff, patio was pleasant, and very nice on a warm Spring night. Varied menu, and selections were... More
