“Excellent service and great food”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

We enjoyed a meal here last week. The service was top rate, friendly and attentive and he made an excellent wine recommendation from Spain. The small plates food offerings were very good and were a nice change from the standard restaurant fare.

“Excellent food, wine, service and atmosphere...but pricey”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Great tapas style spot in the market. Very selection of wine, and even an Amarone for only $75. The food is great but rather expensive. None the less...thoroughly enjoyed it and shall return.

“Amazing lunch deal!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

The 2 plate for 20$ at lunchtime is great value for what you get. For example I had a steak frites, and a seafood dish. The wine was excellent and the service too! I will definetly go back!

“Perfectly paired!”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

After an afternoon at the spa, a girlfriend and I decided to head next door to Play Food & Wine while our toe nail polish was drying. We ended up staying for a couple of hours! What a great find! The staff was very friendly and helpful. They were able to recommend some wine for us based on our preferences. We also had the cheese sampler with their home made crusty bread. Delish! The perfect way to spend the afternoon!

“NYE delight”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

A visit to Play is always a treat. We enjoyed New Year's Eve at Play this year and they rung us into 2013 with great wine and excellent bites.
