Hi Bruce, thank you for the review! We're glad to know our wine and food offerings left you happy and full!
Casual setting, great location, terrific selections of wine by the glass or bottle. Our server was knowledgeable and fun. The food was yummy. The jalapeno chicken poppers and "man candy" are delish--went for happy hour and want to go back for dinner.
