We eat at Pairings once every couple of months. The service is always good and the menu changes periodically. There are always creative dishes available which are outstanding. The wine pairings are done with a lot of thought, and if you like you can get a "wine flight" which is several small glasses of various wines. The overall experience is... More

This was our 3rd time & to celebrate our anniversary. They just know how to make it special with the food and wine pairings. The food is wonderful and great service too. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for and do not walkout feeling it was overpriced. We had crab soup which was with a lot of crab... More

This is a very nice place with excellent food. The Shrimp and grits paired with a glass of house Pinot Grigio was superb.

We went here for a celebratory dinner and were pleasantly surprised. I had low expectations of its atmosphere since it is in a strip mall but they did a great job. The front section has a nice area where you can buy beer and wine by the bottle with some space to sit and enjoy it. The front dining room... More

Very good gourmet food but not as special a menu as it once was. Very good wine to pair with your order. The Staff/ owner can be rude when she is in a mood. Be ready to drop at least $100 for two for a light meal. It used to be the place to go to find items such as... More
