“Homemade Ketchup!”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

The food and wine are amazing here! The service is even better. The fries and the ketchup are a must try as well as the goat cheese cheesecake. Both are a HIT!

“Nice small wine bar!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Two friends and I meet for wine and a few small plates on a August evening. We got there just before happy hour ended and took advantage of trying on of the off the menu wines. I nice idea and a nice wine. We then got a table had a few more wines and some small plates. The calamari was excellent with plenty to share. We also had a selection of 5 cheeses recommended by our server. All very good. A little pricey ($9-$15 a glass for wine) but very good.

“Decent small plates; nice affordable wine selection”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Small place with some pretty good small plates and nice wine selection; sample flights. The avocado on grilled bread was superb. Tortellini also very good but the pureed pea base was cold and should have been warmed up before placing warm tortellini on top. It was pretty packed for a Sunday night so must be popular.

“Quaint, yet Cool”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

Felt like twenty-something when my daughter took me to Cork to begin my birthday celebration. Nice ride in the "Uber" service, (hope spelling is correct), and we sat at the bar to order. Very popular place, even for 6pm on Thursday. Rose chamgagne and prosciutto appetizer was delicious and plentiful. Wine selection was extensive. Seemed the restaurant was short staffed...however, it was still early "for the District."
