You get a card which you load with money and then you can choose tastings of various sizes from a good selection of wines. Food is ordered and... More

This place is a wine store that has a tasting room and a kitchen. It is the best place around for expert advise on wine and Good Food to pair it with. The staff is so friendly and knowledgeable. Don't buy wine anywhere else before you check this place out.

Excellent meal and wine to go with it. Pricing is very reasonable, the staff was attentive and genuinely caring of your service. If your looking for something different and delicious- you need to go The Cave. This was my second visit to the Cave and for the life of me I can't believe I haven't gone back sooner. They have...

I wish we had a place like this near us. When you go in they give you a wine glass and you use a card that you put money on to purchase tastings of different wines. They had very interesting wines to choose from. I loved being able to try one ounce of several different wines, then get a glass... More

We went to the Cave as they were hosting their annual wine party...over 100 wines were featured, but while that was great, the Cave's chef had so many wonderful appetizers that they became almost a focus to the event...way too many to elaborate here, but stuffed pizza, 4 cheese macaroni, chicken skewers,...again, lost count...and all available at their restaurant during...

We happened to be in this commercial area getting our car fixed across the street & the place was recommended by the mechanic. Looks like a cave indoors....dimly lit, music playing, a very unique ambience in a commercial area. We had an excellent char-grilled hamburger on brioche roll, we also tried the chicken salad sandwich (lots of herbs...yummy). Everything is... More

Ok, now that I got the idiots out of way listen up travelers! This is one of my most frequented local places for 2 reasons. They have incredible food and bargain basement pricing in their wine store. While you dine on food that is very fresh and hand crafted, you self serve yourself all the wine you want out of... More
