“Cute Wine Shop but Very Limited Selection”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

My fiance and I visited this "wine tasting" shop on a recent visit to Idyllwild. We were disappointed with it in terms of tasting-the tasting menu was limited, expensive and didn't have a common thread (region, varietal, etc). We decided to each just have a glass of wine instead and shared an antipasti platter. The antipasti was surprisingly good-nice cheese variety and very large. We ended up buying a bottle of wine to take home with us. We go wine-tasting often and wouldn't recommend this for wine tasting but would say its a good place to grab a glass of wine in the small mountain town.

“Great Belgian Beer & Wine”

The owners are kick back and the music is great. Relaxing place to enjoy food, drink, music, & conversation with locals and visitors. We have met the most interesting people there.

“Super Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

We got a coupon for a free glass of wine at Idll Awhile from our hosts at the Strawberry Creek Inn upon check in Friday evening, so we decided to use it that very night. We walked through the door and saw that every table was full. A very kind couple invited us to join them at their table. They then introduced us to a few of their friends as they were passing by the table and to Sandii Castleberry, who was the musical entertainment for the evening. She played the guitar and sang beautifully, many fun songs that got everyone joining in. It was also someone's 50th birthday and we all sang to him and he shared his delicious chocolate birthday cake with us. Everyone in the bistro made us feel like family! It was a great way to start our delightful weekend! We even ran into some of new friends in town during our stay.

“Nice...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Nice place to find in the mall where many shops have closed. Wine and chocolate plate were a great combination.
