We have dined at the Wine Bar numerous times and I must say that we enjoy stopping by for cocktails and appetizers. The bartenders make some pretty tasty concoctions and it is a treat when they have live music. Our last visit was on a Friday after a long week of work. We enjoyed stopping in early before it got...

Went to Atlantic Highlands looking for a place to have a couple cocktails, opting for The Wine Bar as a new place to try. Very relaxed. Kelly and Katie were attentive without being overbearing. Kelly did try to help with selections when my wife's chosen wine was unavailable. It's a limited , but good, menu of wines, liquors and a... More

We came here last week and decided to sit down at the dinner tables and have some appetizers and entrees. BAD DECISION. We started off with the Mediterranean spread, which was weird but good. I believe it was hummus, mixed with tzaziki, and avocados. I never tasted anything like it, but it wasn't bad actually. My husband got a pasta... More

Stopped at The Wine Bar for a cocktail before our dinner at another location. It's a flight up from the street and a very nice relaxed atmosphere inside. We sat at the bar and ordered some drinks. Not impressed with the list, expected it to be expansive. Bartender was not attentive, which always puts a damper in my opinion.She did... More

Drinks are always great here. Upscale feel with a casual crowd. It's great on a nice summer night with a light breeze. We always come with friends but it's nice for a relaxing night for 2. You can't go wrong here.

We love going here on a Friday or Saturday night and having a dinner of appetizers while listening to the piano. Love the nice big and comfy sofas. We were there once in the spring on a nice night they had open the windows and the breeze off the bay is wonderful. Service has always been very attentive. This is... More

This place is a really nice upscale restaurant with great food and they are dedicated to wine. Then why is the wine stored at room temp 74 degrees the days I went there? As a big wino I was really disappointed with this. They need to figure out a cool place to store the wine.

We visited the Wine Bar on a Saturday evening for dinner. They had two very fine jazz guitarists playing. Lovely. The wine list was interesting and generally well-priced. I had a lovely Spanish red. The food however, was wonderful. My wife's stuffed pork loin with Brussels sprout hash was great. My funds pasta with ricotta salta and tomato sauce was... More

We recently attended a catered affair at The Wine Bar. The decor is elegant but cozy, the view is lovely, the service is extremely attentive, and the food is outstanding. We look forward to going back to try their regular menu.
