Not sure I agree with TripAdvisor label. They do have some good pizzas, but a friend and I had a great burger with portobello mushrooms, blue cheese, and a tasty balsamic reduction. Seems like truffle oil was part of that as well. Add some nice wine and a live trio with just the right volume so we... read more

I recently visited the wine bar and realized they've expanded into a former antique store, so now more tables. They've also expanded their menu. The food is always good, great wine selections and now more seating. Yeah!! This is a great place to visit prior to movie night at the Riverview Theater. One of the best kept secrets in S.... More

I met a friend who just raved about this wine bar (on one side) and coffee bar on the other side. Looking at the wine list I saw a bunch of fringe wineries. Most of which I was unimpressed. So when in doubt get a wine flight. Three out of the four were good. The other was average. We added... More

When I think about wine bars, this is the wine bar others should measure up to. The atmosphere is relaxing, the staff is great, and wine selction is extensive. And they have recently added a much fuller menu in addition to their really good thin pizzas. The wine flights are a great way to get some variety, either by country... More

We checked out this little wine bar, conveniently located across the street from the local theatre, and were pleasantly surprised - good selection of reasonably priced wines (by the glass and bottle) and a variety of good food options as well. The place was busy on a Friday evening, attracting a mixed crowd of young and old, couples and groups... More

We have been going there since it opened. The wait staff are like friends when we go there & are always very knowledgable about the beer, wine & food to help us make great choices for a fun & delicious dining experience. Portions are perfect & there's always a homemade touch to the things that they offer. Thanks!

I love wine flights!!! Lots to choose from here. The wine list is great as well. Several cheeses to choose from and we ordered the chèvre which was served warm with caramelized onion and bread. Also ordered the plowman's platter charcuterie plate which was amazing. Delicious and extremely generous. Will definitely go back and recommend to others!!

This is a great spot in a lovely South Minneapolis neighborhood by the Riverview Theater. They have a nice wine selection, a knowledgeable and friendly staff and a small but interesting menu. Great outdoor seating and a warm and inviting interior.

The Riverview Theater - kitty corner from the Wine Bar - is the best movie value in town! So having purchased $2 movie tickets we thought we could splurge on a glass of wine and a light dinner at the Riverview Wine Bar. It was a very cold (we're talking Minnesota cold) evening and after a brief wait we were... More

I have been to this restaurant a few times, the last time just last Friday. I had one of the specials, a burger with oven roasted potatoes and a wine flight from Spain. Both were good. I also tried the chocolate mousse and my friend had the apple crisp. My mousse was too sweet, but the apple crisp was still... More
