Knowledgeable and friendly

Good selection of wines, and if you tell the guy what you like, he'll use his knowledge to select something for you, let you taste it and if you don't like it, he'll give you something else to try. And he's good at what he does! Friendly, knows his stuff and there's wines not on the list too if... read more

Stopped by with my wife to kill some time before an appointment and we were very pleased with the atmosphere, prices, and customer service. Cozy couches available as well. Met some new friends while there. Will be back.

We were from out of town and happened on this place, did not eat but shared a bottle of wine with friends. The wine was excellent and fairly priced. The best part was banter with the owner/operator who was friendly and enjoyable to talk to. He shared some card tricks with us and we showed him a few too. I... More

We were on vacation staying at the Navy Lodge and found this hole in the wall in Oak Harbor on Trip Advisor and later learned Restaurant.com offers gift certificates here. It is located at the back of the Harborside mall with parking behind the mall. It opens at 3, except Sundays. The bartender recommended some good wines, including an interesting... More

Brian does a wonderful job of making you feel welcome and comfortable. I go to the Terrace every time I go to Oak Harbor. Brian creates and cooks the food he serves. He also has an excellent palate for wine he serves and can recommend a good wine every time. Great place to go to relax and enjoy the company!

This little hole in the wall is wonderful! The owner of the place is amazing. We were made to feel very welcome as the owner doted on us and gave us knowledgeable information on wines. Highly recommended!

Come meet the new owner, Morgan. Rotating wine selection, baked brie, soup, tea... (If you're super hungry, he'll let you order from Cameron's downstairs and they'll bring up your meal)

This is a place to relax with a good glass of wine. Very simply. Small, relatively intimate with a fireplace room (comfy chairs) off the bar area. No sports channels on the one TV monitor, just intelligent conversation by the (new) Brian who took over for the (other) Brian. We were offered plenty of samples before deciding on the right...

We <3 wine! So when we finally arrived at oak harbor on Friday night I typed wine into my google maps app to look for a wine bar nearby. We had a HECK of a time finding this restaurant! We went to the website, but there was no address on the website. Finally, we located the phone number via their... More

The owner was super-friendly and very knowledgable. Made good recommendations on what to try and spent a good, honest few minutes with us talking about what to do around town. Atmosphere was nice, quaint, comfortable...menu looked tasty although we didn't try anything. If you like wine and you are in Oak Harbor, this is your choice, hands down...
