“Excellent wines and great atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2015

My husband and I love to go to The Loft Wine Bar whenever we are in Benicia. We either go together or bring a group of friends. Jason and his crew have never disappointed us. They know what they are talking about; the wines are excellent and the atmosphere great. An unexpected find! We would definitely recommend checking this place out.

“Great wine, good food and friendly service ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2014

This is long overdue review on a great place that I frequent often.
I love wine mostly cabernet and like the wide and ever changing variety and that they have that you can't get at the supermarket or other bars . They also serve food 5 days week and I love the homemade hummus and the pitas . They even have beef Wellington which I haven't tried yet. They owner Jason is Greek so there lots of Mediterranean inspired items on the menu. Nelson the Chef ( bar tender and dishwasher very creative in the kitchen and very personable. Morgan is the manager and is new to the Bay Area and to the loft. She is quick and efficient as a server, and also takes time to get to know he customers who are regulars, She is also great at getting new people walking down the street or coming in for a quick look to stay for a drink, snack or meal. I feel very welcome there and part of the family.

“Upscale Wine bar.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

It has very modern furnishing and the a great wine selection which changes from month to month. It also serves snacks although the menu is limited. Interesting beverages for someone who doesn't drink alcohol. Stays open until 11pm which is late for downtown so it is a great place to go and get an after dinner drink or come after a meeting at city hall.

“Great menu, excellent wine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

I stumbled across the Loft while I was looking for a place to eat and do some work. I was pleasantly surprised. Not only did the Loft have fast internet, I was able to get one of the best meals I've had in a long time. The champagne chicken is fantastic! The wine menu does not disappoint either. I had some great wines that I have not had anywhere else other than Napa. All in all a great place!

“Great service, nice wine selection and decor,poor beer options.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

We had a glass of CA wine that was very good and two bad 1664 drafts that were horrible. The draft was turvy and tasted bad like non-pasteurized beer gets when open too long. The bottled beer option were very poor. Due to the sun we could not see anything on the giant screen. Worth a visit though.
