Good food, great wine selection, relaxed atmosphere. I've been here many times and have never had a bad experience.

We were attending an art fair in Downers Grove and stopped here for a bite of lunch. The inside looked a bit gloomy (at had been drizzling outside) so we decided to stay outside on the patio since looked like the skies were clearing. I had the green apple and pear salad with gorgonzola and walnuts which I liked very... More

I enjoyed my lunch at this cozy nook of a wine bar/eatery. It looked kind of like a cellar in that it was dark/shaded...not a lot of windows. The right wall was filled with a variety of wines, each one with a detailed description of how that wine tasted. I had a glass of a tempranillo wine which was rich... More

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
