Really excellent!

Paul, our server made a great meal even better. Love this place, the duck was great, the lobster mac and cheese was great, basically everything was terrific. While not as pretentious as Barking Frog, frankly I think the food is much better.

A romantically-lit corner of Woodinville that gently coaxes you out of your hectic day and gently sits you down to gorgeously prepared food and a wonderful selection of delicious wines. The service was warm, hospitable and not at all intrusive. The food was thoughtfully prepared and presented with care. The wines.....oh the wines! Choose from trio-flights, by the glass or... More

A great and lively atmosphere to sit and catch up with friends. Could have sipped a wine all afternoon. Food was great, service was very helpful for wine novices like us.

Made a reservation through OpenTable and took a friend for a birthday dinner. We were escorted upstairs and had the 2nd level all to ourselves most of the night. Despite arriving at 5:30 and staying until 9:30, we were never pressured to leave and were pretty much left alone after we took care of the bill. The food is so... More

Very nice place to have lunch, noise level was high. Parking is a pain and the mini mall should consider doubling the siz

It has great wines and decent prices and perhaps the most generous and humane practice of allowing patrons to bring a bottle for free if they have it not in stock. The srvice is fine. The food suffers slightly from a vegetarian's point of view but is somewhat imaginative. I found the appetizer dips for example better than the salad.... More

We wanted a quick but good lunch and the locals recommended this place. It was perfect. Our soup and sandwiches were excellent. The rustic yet contemporary atmosphere was hip and comfortable. Incredible wine selection also.

I really like sitting at the bar at this café, ordering wine, and enjoying their tapenade. Their cheese "flights" are really good as well. But be prepared to pay for it... Being a "wine bar," they have a great wine selection, but it's overpriced, as you would expect it to be. Dining here is a bit hectic, as the restaurant... More

The food was well above average. The server was wonderful, attentive but not over the top. The only downside is that it can be a little noisy at times.
