Nicely hidden yet public. Fun band, great local art, scrumptious groupon deal and food. Great for a date night if you want something cute different upscale feel without being stuffy.

1) Red wine should NOT be served at room temperature!! Particularly not in Richmond, Virginia in July, and especially not if you call yourself a wine bar!! If you can't afford a proper wine cellar, at least store the wine in a dark place and chill it slightly before serving it to get it down to cellar temperature. A few... More

I usually love visiting this wine bar for my voulet. It is owned by a mother and son I lieve. The mother is very nice and usually make me feel welcomed. My last visit, the son waited on my dinner party and was extremely rude to the customers. I was shocked and disappointed to say the least. He was very... More

Visited on Friday date night, early before a movie. Greta small plates and interesting wines. We split the cheese plate, the seared polenta and the seafood lettuce wraps. All were nicely presented in perfect tapas portions. Lots of places claim to be doing small plates these days, but there's a difference between small potions and a tapas menu meant to... More

Interesting location, the food is good but the service very poor. A lot of wines on the list not available, the waitress knew nothing about wines. The evening was saved by the manager.

My fiancé and I have been to C'est le vin two times now, and both times have been superb. I love the tapas style of eating, and being able to sample tons of items. Don't miss the cheese plate or the amazing garlic shrimp. It's has great ambiance and is the perfect spot to be able to talk without it... More

We made reservation for Friday night at 7pm. We were seated right away. The interior is simple and could use a bit ambience. The hostess was super sweet and we were provided a flight tasting after we checked in using yelp! The menu comes in small plates and larger shared plate options. The food was good, but not amazing.
