We went here on a recommendation from friends - who frequently go there for dinner. We were told the food was excellent in a very casual environment, with the owner being extremely wine-friendly. Our expectations were exceeded on all accounts. Appetizers were wonderful - some of the best fried oyster - moist and tender. Entrees were bison short ribs and a pork cassolet - also excellent. Bill was extremely knowledgeable about the wines - which spanned the globe. He spoke at length to us after we chose our courses to ensure that he choose the best wine to complement not only the foods, but our paletes. The service was also excellent - not intrusive, but very attentive. There are not very many tables, which lends itself to wonderful attention. Bill spoke with us throughout our dinner (and wonderful NewOrleans pecan cake for dessert)...we also spent time with him afterwards looking through the exceptional array of wines for sale. It will be difficult not to choose Tastings for our next dinner in Charlottesville. Thanks to Bill and his staff for making an ordinary Friday - a special evening.
