Intimate, novel, tasty tapas

Loved the ability to do small tastings. Works like a debit card. Pricing for one ounce glass of wine from $1-3 approx. You can also opt for 2 and 3 ounce tastings for more money. Food was tasty and unusual, but very small portions. Sharing a small pizza is reasonable, but some of the other... read more

We have visited this site a few times; we enjoy the setting and the choices of wine. (You can purchase bottles in the adjacent store). They have a limited dinner selection, and it works fine for us. It does get very busy at times.

Here you are or become your own wine expert with beautifully plated and cheerfully served small servings of creative foods to go along with. Ate my first marigold in a spectacular banana bread pudding. They know what they're doing. An extensive selection of wines and beers cleverly dispensed. Easy ample parking. A quiet area. The night we were there there... More

Came here after a long seminar this evening. It's located in a rather strange area that looks like light industrial businesses. Entrance is through the wine store which has an excellent selection. 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...
