I've been a few times to thus establishment. Great atmosphere, food is pretty good. I've really enjoyed them during festivals over the summer and early fall. They've had a great live music and entertainment they have done in the padt. Thinking of planning a friend's dinner there soon

Very nice wine selection. Attentive but not intrusive staff. The night we were there they happened to have live jazz. Best of all, they responded and readily accommodated requests for gluten free dishes. Thee food was excellent. I regret not having visited before now.

We wandered across this little wine bar and stopped in. The service was good with an average selection of wines by the glass and bottle. The wine was very good and we also shared a spinach tortilla which was better than expected.

Good wine. Great food. Excellent service. Best item we ordered was potatoes bravas. Delicious. Accidently misread our groupon and the server helped us out even though she didn't have to. Will come again :)

As my husband is a big fan of small plates and wine, I thought this place would be a great stop after our canal cruise. For a nice, convenient location in the 17th Street Farmer's Market area, I originally was worried that I did not have a reservation for dinner on a Friday night. But when I got there, I... More

First Tapas experience for us. Waitress, Genet, was pleasant, patient, and informative. Food was delicious. We had the garlic shrimp, pancetta tortilla, empanadas and shrimp brochettes. Small plate enough to share. Every dish came from kitchen piping hot. We ordered 2 items at a time. Meal nicely paced. Also, one of the few restaurants we've visited lately that has a... More

I'm kind of on the fence between 3 stars and 4 stars. C'est Le Vin came so close on so many things, but didn't really nail any of them. Ambiance: Love the decorative ceiling. Love the rotating art gallery. The table cloths are in desperate need of an iron/steamer, and the banquet chairs don't jive with the rest of the... More

Service was terrible. I don't know if the server there was left stranded, but she was worthless. We walked in and stood at the front for far too long before she seated us. Sat for 10 min before bringing us water and menus. water had floaters in it, and when I asked for new glass of water she brought back... More

My daughter and I really enjoyed our February evening at C'est Le Vin. Our server was attentive, we ordered four different tapas/appetizers and enjoyed all three. The wine (which I unfortunately cannot remember the name of) paired beautifully. This would be a really fun place to go to with a larger group, and there was a group of about 10... More
