It's on a main street, but still nice to sit outside when the weather permits. Good choice of wines. Food is ok, but I wouldn't say great. Unwind here on a Friday night. Parking is tight on the street but there is a large parking garage close by.

If you expect to enjoy a glass of wine and a "Flight" of cheese, while watching the world go by (weather permitting) get there -- well, actually, an empty table is a challenge any time of day. The space is small and the patronage is large but they offer a limitless variety of wines by the glass, or bottle. And,... More

Awesome little wine bar with a beautiful outdoor patio... really nice place to relax and enjoy a glass of wine in the shade on a hot summer afternoon. They have excellent beers available too, if that's what you're int he mode for and some modest menu items if you're hungry (I've heard they've recently upgraded the menu). They could do... More

Great area spot for a glass of wine and to spend some time with friends or that special someone. Huge wine selection and you can order up some appetizers. Always a popular spot especially on a weekend and when the weather is nice.

Small local eatery with a great name. It is not in a cellar but the variety of wines make you think your are in one. They also have a large selection of beers. The restaurant makes you feel cozy but yet not crowded. There are about 10 small tables that will seat four each and a couple for only two.... More

Nice to sit outside. Drinks are nothing special, beer selection is poor. Food: pay more get less....

My best friend and I ordered wine and the 7-cheese platter. We did not realize the cheese platter was going to be so huge, compared to other restaurants in the same category! We had more than enough for days after. We ended up not liking one of the cheeses the waitress recommended, so they swapped it out for us, which... More

Great place for a night out to catch up with friends. Great selection of wine, tasty sandwiches, salads and snacks to share. Wed night is trivia night - lots of fun.

Cute street dining with a wine bar feel. Tidy menu with expected pricing. I had small un-creative salad and a decent Cuban sandwich. It was all fine but didn't give me the "I gotta come back and try other stuff" feeling. It wasn't full but the service was really slow and frazzled. They gave us a check for 1/2 what... More

I like to come here with friends or solo on the way home from work. The food is excellent, especially the grilled chicken BLT! They use a really smokey bacon. This place is more than just a wine bar. They also have about ten craft beer taps and a decent selection of beer, mead and cider bottles. The staff is... More
