“Surprise in Punta Gorda”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Had a nice time with our friends at the "The Orange House Wine Bar". The food was just what we were looking for, enough to zip on the wine and enjoy the nice atmosphere. The wine I decided on was tasteful and my German friend of course had a Riesling wine.
We sure will return.

“A great find for wine lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

This is a new restaurant in downtown Punta Gorda. It carries, with no doubt at all, the finest array of wines anywhere in the area. It also offers many craft beers and fine espresso drinks.
The food choice is limited because this is a place for smaller bites, shared plates, and assorted tidbits. The scallops are beautiful, the Greek Salad On-A-Stick is a treat, and there are several others. We enjoy the various meat and cheese selections. Think of appetizers, not full meals, when you go there.
The wine list changes from time to time, as it should. So if you go a few times, don't expect that the food or wine selection will always be the same, because it will vary. It's always a new experience. Wine prices are surprisingly reasonable and you can buy by the glass, bottle or case.
The atmosphere is mellow and it's a wonderful place for quiet conversation or to meet friends. There is often some live jazz of very high quality that suits the surroundings.
We have gone to the Orange House several times, expecting that we would have a nice glass of wine and an appetizer, then go to one of the other area restaurants for dinner; more that once, we have stayed there and split several appetizers and another glass of wine.
