“You Just Gotta Sneak Through the Wind Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

The wine bar is nice and well attended. If you didn't know there was a restaurant attached you would miss a great meal. It's through a darkly lit hall sort of thing. The food is great the dining room is cozy and comfortable. The staff is very professional and of course the wine cellar is huge. Try this place and you will be coming back.

“Hard to find but worth the search”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

The address is supposed to be 102 West Front Street, but the sign and entrance are actually around the corner at 111 N. Higgins Street, the entrance to the old hotel. Once before we tried to find this place and gave up, but figured it out this time.

We ate in the wine bar, not the "fine dining" restaurant area which has a different menu. Varied selections and we were happy with our choices, but they were out of the entree I really wanted to try. Excellent wine selection, and knowledgeable servers, although once we ordered they seemed to vanish except for delivering the meal.

We arrived about 5:30 and the place was basically empty, and we worried that we may have made a mistake, but about 6:15 it started filling up rapidly, so it is a popular as the reviews indicate.

Not sure if we will be back, or try something different next time we are in the area, but the Trip Advisor reviews are usually extremely helpful.

“Classy Wine Bar and Heavenly Dessert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

We stopped into the Red Bird strictly for a glass of wine but especially for dessert. First of all, we were impressed with the old Art Deco former hotel entrance, even with old rotary dial phone booths. We did have to wait about 20 minutes for our dessert but WOW was it worth the wait! The presentation was pure art but even now as I remember it, I am salivating. Heavenly!! It's a great old-world atmosphere. One slight negative...the background music should be from an era that befits the decor.
