We had one of the best wines ever at this restaurant. The place is nicely decorated. Seating offered outside with gas fireplaces in the middle of the table. Indoor seating has wine barrel tables adding to the wine theme. The food was fresh and tasty. If this location was in the heart of manzanita it would be packed. It is... More

High hopes dashed by mediocre food (crabcakes = crab overwhelmed by onions), poor service and general disorganization despite the fact that it wasn't crowded. Not sure why it was so hard to get silverware and napkins, nor why they serve wine in glasses and everything else in plastic cups, let alone why they seem so unenthused by those pesky paying... More

Sitting on the outdoor patio with a firepit at the table listening to live music made this place! The fresh, steamed crab was also delish! However, couldn't help but feel unwelcomed by the owner. Not sure if it's the fact that we had two young children or that we look young. Regardless, the place was empty when we sat down... More

A wonderful spot to sit and relax and have a bottle of incredible Oregon wine. Service is excellent. A friendly beach town atmosphere.

Great Place however it is closed and for sale. Owner apparently moved out of state. Some fixtures remain so it may reopen.

Sadly this restaurant is closed and the space up for sale. I was really hoping to give it a try, but no luck.

The seasonal source for gourmet viands from Washington and Oregon. Upscale picnic food and the variety of wines to 'go with'. There is a delightful large COVERED outdoor patio, with seating around tables that have small burners in the center. Fresh crab is often available, with appetizers, cheeses, wines and chocolates to delight any tastebud.

My husband and I headed to the coast for the day and wanted to visit an area we hadn't been before. It was a little drizzly on this summer day in Manzanita but that's par for the course in Oregon. The restaurant had a cute patio that was covered and we really loved that each table had its own gas... More

Tried this after reading reviews. The wine selection is good but don't bother with the food. The caprese salad was generic and the salmon and tuna were overcooked, tuna was waaaay overcooked.
