Lovely spot under umbrellas - may have to wait, but worth it to savor a leisurely lunch. We did not have wine, but enjoyed the lunch and a delicious Bloody Mary!

We had a small lunch/brunch here. They have a very large assortment of wine. We had free wine tasting. We bought a bottle of wine and a cheese plate. We sat outside and had a great time. Convenient for people watching.

A nice spot with tables outside under sunshades. The Ceasar salad was excellent. A good place for a lunch outside.
