My wife and I live in the area and although we really want to like this place we really can't. The prices are high and the food quality is average at best. There's nothing special, no specialty, nothing to make you want to come back. Living near by we were really hoping for a place we can frequent but there's... More

Pretty knowledgeable bar tender with a careful approach to serving non-stale wines. Very few wines for under $10 a glass. Most were $13 and higher. $18 for a side salad and microwaved "freezer to table" cheesy lasagna didn't provide much satisfaction though the portion size was huge. The other food choices all seemed spendy, though the small plates might have... More

I met two friends here for dinner before going to a movie at the theater across the street. I enjoyed the wine flight option. I'm not much of a wine drinker and prefer the sweeter varieties. This is one of the few places that had several sweet options. I had crab cakes which were very tasty, as was the slaw... More

This is a nice neighborhood wine bar and restaurant. We had an early dinner. I had the beet salad with chicken breast. My husband had the butternut squash and roasted pear soup. They were both good, but the salad was overdressed. It would have been nice to have some bread served with the salad and soup. There is a large... More

So relaxing in a quiet neighborhood. Sit outside in summer for nature and a pleasant breeze or inside n the winter for a cozy escape. The wine is phenomenal and so is the food and the service! Beats any restaurant in the neighborhood.

My son and I came here for dinner because of the restaurant's proximity to the Riverview Theatre where we planned to see a movie. I was pleasantly surprised by the wonderful meal! We sat outside on the patio. My son had the Pan Seared Salmon and I ate the Grilled Beet Salad (amazing!) and the Gorgonzola Pear Flatbread Pizza. The... More

Not sure I agree with TripAdvisor label. They do have some good pizzas, but a friend and I had a great burger with portobello mushrooms, blue cheese, and a tasty balsamic reduction. Seems like truffle oil was part of that as well. Add some nice wine and a live trio with just the right volume so we could still visit.... More

I recently visited the wine bar and realized they've expanded into a former antique store, so now more tables. They've also expanded their menu. The food is always good, great wine selections and now more seating. Yeah!! This is a great place to visit prior to movie night at the Riverview Theater. One of the best kept secrets in S.... More

I met a friend who just raved about this wine bar (on one side) and coffee bar on the other side. Looking at the wine list I saw a bunch of fringe wineries. Most of which I was unimpressed. So when in doubt get a wine flight. Three out of the four were good. The other was average. We added... More

When I think about wine bars, this is the wine bar others should measure up to. The atmosphere is relaxing, the staff is great, and wine selction is extensive. And they have recently added a much fuller menu in addition to their really good thin pizzas. The wine flights are a great way to get some variety, either by country... More
