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

after long conference hours, this place was a great find. As a woman traveling alone I found it safe, pleasant and outside environment was wonderful. I did not feel rushed and very welcomed by the wait staff. They did a great job. Choc truffles are divine with red wine!!!

Visited this fun & cozy wine bar during recent conference in downtown Indianapolis. Excellent selection of eclectic, California, French, Italian, Austrian, German, Chilean, Argentinian wines by the taste or by the glass with a helpful "library" guide to each wine and its features. Best wine "book" and guide I've ever seen in a tasting room like this. Reasonable prices, comfy... More

A few of us ladies spent a relaxing afternoon here. Sampling wines and talking. The food looked very fresh and smelled fantastic. It is small plate food though so do not expect to go here starving and fill up on a meal. The wine selection is over 50 and with 2 oz pours we had the opportunity to sample several.... More
