“Waited forever for our food and drinks”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

Dining with a group of 8 and everything came at different times - we all ordered at the same time however some in our party were served their flights of wine right away and others waited over 15 minutes. The dinners came out over a span of 30 minutes - so some in our party were long finished before others at our table were served - and the restaurant wasn't even crowded! And the server didn't even offer us another glass of wine when we had empty glasses - ahh such lost opportunity.

“AWESOME”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2011

Every question I asked about the wine was answered and more, I learned so much that day about wine. Nicest bartender ever and knew his stuff! Great food, just an awesome place all around.

“Great place if you can put up with the service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2009

I really love this place because of its innovative way of serving wine. You can a 'flight' of three different samplings of wine. Most of the food is just appetizers, but they are VERY good. The only bad thing about this is the wait staff. They are friendly, but inept. I've waited for drinks for 30 minutes, but seen them sitting at the bar as if we are supposed to get them ourselves. If you go, you will have a wonderful time, just order everything you will possibly want as soon as you see a waiter because you might never see them again!

“Cozy downtown spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2009

Nice place to go for a glass of wine before dinner, or a wine flite. Very nice servers - agree about lighting, if you sit at the bar the light is way too bright - couches seem to have better lighting. Frequent this locally-owned place - we need more like this in downtown!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2008

A decadent place to spend the evening, and you will part with more money than you had hoped. and you will thoroughly enjoy yourself. It's a great place to unwind and enjoy flights of wine. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. My only critique is they aren't open very late on weekdays.
