I came here to see Basia’s concert. It was great. This venue is unique since you dine when listening and you may share tables with strangers which is quite cool. But it might be s disaster as well.

LOVE City Winery. It’s intimacy, delicious wines and great sound system makes a great night out destination. Saw Average White Band and Basia there and thoroughly enjoyed both evenings. The seating is a little tight but the performances make up for the closeness with strangers....More

Awesome, intimate venue to see some fantastic artists. I was very concerned about getting the right real estate when I purchased my tickets, but there really wouldn’t be a bad seat. Warm and cozy. Can’t wait to go again!

We sat along the counter facing the river, enjoying the wine and beer while watching the boats. The food choices were limited but tasty, and the scene beats the heck out of staring at walls.

Overpriced, few choices, understaffed and just generally bad. The ONLY positive is the view -the river, the city, etc. We were here last year over Labor Day and it was lovely, now it is terrible.

Nice place to stop for an expensive glass of quality wine. Service was not a fine-oiled machine. Got to sit out and watch river activities on a beautiful day.

I don't know about VIP, but I can say I was pretty far back and the view was decent. It is not a huge venue and most seats (tables) are good.

I suggest going "business casual" as well... I would say a nice pair of jeans, button-down shirt, loafers and a blazer would be sufficient...
