We made reservations last year but had a minor with us, so this year gave it another shot! It is a noisy environment but I suspect we were a part of that! The appetizers (bites) were fabulous. We all shared deviled eggs, bacon wrapped dates...More

I enjoy coming here for wine in the evenings. The outdoor patio has great views. The inside can feel a little cramped, especially if you are seated next to someone really loud.

Delicious appetizers and red wine flights (didn't try the entrees or white wines), beautiful and unique venue, and fun and helpful staff made this the highlight of my trip to Olympia. Can't wait to come back!

Food was phenomenal, it's seasonal so I won't waste time on what we ate, but rest assured, whatever you order will be great. Unbelievable wine selections and the service is unbelievable and so knowledgeable about the various wines and food selection.
