We really wanted to love our experience but sadly, it was a big disappointment. Service was incredibly spotty and unprofessional, and wine and cheese tasting was overpriced and consisted of a bite of cheese on a paper plate and a sip of wine. Once we finally were able to order tapas and a glass of wine, it was ok, but... More

By all reports, our Wine and Cheese Tasting was a great success. We feel $10 is a very nominal charge for tasting several Artisan Cheeses and Premium Wines. Nevertheless, we're sorry it was not an event for you. We are always concerned about service. As no complaints were registered that evening, it would help us if you would email me... More

We were traveling with pet and needed to eat where we could accommodate him on warm Florida afternoon. We really lucked out to find this exquisite cafe serving small plates, wines, beers even water and treats for our dog. I had Reuben and veg. soup, husband enjoyed salad with mozzarella, added chicken and balsamic vinaigrette. Too bad we are just... More

I almost hate to share one of my favorite places, but they deserve the review. The wine selection is wonderful and well priced. The tapas are, well....yum.

Vino Loco is located on the corner of W. Dearborn St. and Elm St. right in the middle of downtown Englewood. Loco is a comfy small restaurant with a great selection of very moderately priced wines. They offer an ever changing selection of wines, and many are specially selected, very good tasting wines. They usually offer specials and those specials... More

My friend and I enjoyed a delicious lunch and part of the cost ($25.00 for 3 courses was donated to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, as a charitable gesture). We started off with potato and bacon soup garnished with sour cream and green onion, followed by beef tortellini in a rose sauce, with grape tomatoes and for dessert a dense... More

The other reviewers are correct. Definetly a place to try. We had the dry Rose wine, hummus, Gazpacho soup and Tappas sampler for 2. Very authentic Tappas, and very nice portions. Great pleasant service, highly recommended. Their cigar and wine and cheese store selections are very enticing as well.

I am now a regular visitor to Vino Loco due to the fantastic experience we always have. Every week Chef Katrina creates incredible tapas that are simply the best. Fresh ingredients (No Sysco here), always cooked to perfection. They have a special pour wine every week also to compliment their menu, just $5 a glass! They also have organic and... More

Fun sitting at the bar with Charlie. We learned a ton about wine. Good beer too. Great small plates. We will definitely be back.
