We ve been there with a few friends and had a really nice evening. Having some wines,beers and champaign. We ordered the cheese and meatplate. The olive plates and a few paninis. The food was excellent. The only thing is that we had to break up our fun at 8.15pm what I personally think it is a bit early especially... More

The 1st time we have tried wine tasting, the place was very relaxing. The guy who served us was very knowledgable about the wines on offer. The food really complimented it. After the 'tasting' we had a bottle of the Pinot noir. A very enjoyable evening. Go early as it closes around 8pm

Great place to enjoy a glass or two of wine. Loved the atmosphere and the wine selection was vast. Staff is very attentive and more than happy to help. Job well done.

We stopped in because of the sign proclaiming $5 sangria. It was amazing. It's a fun little wine bar on the main embarcadero area. Looks like I will be back again soon

Very good spot for a sophisticated but not stuffy evening. We like good wine but are not experts by any means. They have a great selection of wines and they will guide you to what you will enjoy most. Also, the appetizers deserve special mention, as the choices are extremely delicious. The staff is fun and very friendly, too.

Hubs and I stopped in. Nice paninis, crostinis, charcuterie, etc. not quite a full meal but good. Good bottle selection - lots of central coast options. Also have a 5 wine flight for $10. Would recommend.

The Anderson family from the Inn recommended Stax as a fun place to go sit, chill and have a glass of wine. They were absolutely right. Stax is at the end of the Embarcadero, kind of tucked around the corner. We sat at the bar, had a beautiful glass of wine and an appetizer. The staff was friendly and the... More

This place is the bomb. I ordered the flight and it started with a riesling(which I am not a fan of) and I loved it sooo much. The cesear crostini amaaaazing! I loved the anchovies-super fresh and not salty at all. They have a local brewed hard cider that is good too. The server is very attentive and really goes... More

This is my family's "go to" spot when we want a relaxing meal out! It's so much more than just a wine bar. The ingredients of the crostini dishes are always consistently fresh. If wine isn't your thing, they also have a good variety of beers on the menu. The staff is friendly and laid back. A great view of... More
