Great Vibe

If you're looking for a cool business casual atmosphere, this is the place for you. Their meatballs are made with veil and cheese and are phenomenal. I'm a fan of the pasta, you can't go wrong with any choice. Great for dates as well!

Been to 4 of 5 in Columbus. I really enjoy the subdued ambience. Friendly and efficient service. Selective but quality wine list. Appetizers, flat breads, soups, desserts were all delicious. A bit pricy, but not outrageously so. I'll definitely go back to try the other fare. I would recommend printing suggested wine pairings with menu items.

I was here for a business lunch. I had a seasonal salad and it was very good. They did not balk when I asked for a different type of cheese and dressing on the side. The table also had several appetizers and they were all good. I like the menu at this restaurant. It is diverse and interesting and changes... More

Convenient to the Lennox theatres and big box retail. This is a relatively small restaurant with a limited menu of small plates, and flatbreads, plus some entrees. The chef was NOT flexible in his preparations due to food allergies. Best he would do is leave something out rather than create a substitute. Place was not really busy for a Saturday... More

I was impressed with the decor and vast wine selections. However, the food selection is limited and overpriced. I went with several friends and we all ordered something to share. Disappointing all around. I had to drown my taste buds in order to get the over seasoned taste out of my mouth. Overrated.

You sit in an area where 2,000+ wines are on display and for sale. The menu has lots of diverse choices. I had the lime shrimp which was delicious and a lovely glass of a chardonnay. Our waiter, Craig took care of everything in a timely fashion. And we had a lovely cheesecake dessert that tasted like it was made... More

Celebrated a friend's birthday here. The atmosphere is charming --- like a chic, cozy wine store posing as a restaurant. We dined in a private room. I love wine but am certainly not an expert. Each member of our group selected a different flight, both red and white, and we all loved every offering. We ordered a fruit & cheese... More

If you want a large array of wines to choose from, this is the place to go. But if you're not into wine and are only going to dine, spend your money elsewhere. The food is good, but their portions are small. I left hungry.

It looked like it was going to be a great place with the reviews and how beautiful it looked. However, the food wasn't all that great and the wine had very little taste. Our waitress seemed annoyed after we asked a few questions about the wine tastings. She also kept pushing for the pre-made flights when we kept insisting we... More
