We stopped in during some down time, waiting for show time at the Hilbert Theater. Nice surroundings. Great place to taste a variety of wines without mortgaging the farm to do so! Great appetizers. Also, they have some wonderful "wine"-related artwork on the walls that is also available for purchase. My husband surprised me a couple of weeks later with... More

It was a wonderful experience - comfortable leather chairs and couches. There was also bar seating. Stupendous wine menu. Excellent selections. Cheese/fruit platter was good. The service was very slow. We were there to relax so it didn't really matter to us. There was only 1 person on the floor and she was chit chatting with the bartender. Overall it... More

This is a great place to try wines that you would not necessarily order a full bottle of. Cheeses, small flatbread pizzas and appetizers that go with wines of every region and varietal are served to you while you are in comfortable couches and chairs. Excellent atmosphere good place to people watch.

Great interior, huge selection of wines and cheeses and excellent service. Cheese platters are made right in front of you, when sitting at the bar.

Had a very nice evening at Tastings. You pay a few dollars for each sampler of wine. Simple. Nice food and great wines on display for choosing.

I was at Tasting alone so my rating of food and wine is limited but I can comment on the décor and service. It is a beautiful spot with wonderful ambience. The lighting, seating, artwork and other features make this bistro a place you want to visit. The extensive wine list with the option to sample wines is unique. The... More

Wine by the glass was somewhat pricey, but my coworker and I ended up splitting one of the less expensive bottles (about $30) so it wasn't bad. Since we were just visiting, the whole card and tasting thing didn't seem like the best option for us, but it's a cool idea. The food we had was great too! I got... More

Somehow my friend and I stumbled upon this cool, fun atmospheric wine bar. The wine they have to choose from is great, the tasting samples you get with a paid card is nice to be able to try out and find the right one that is for your liking, then you can enjoy a full glass. Cheese selections to pair... More
