“Great Food, adequate server”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

The food at the restaurant was excellent and it is a must when in the area. We ordered 1 of everything on the warm side of the menu. The mushrooms, avocado and steak were fabulous. The ambience is warm and comfortable. Unfortunately we had a very stuck up server with bad breath.

“Small plates and wine”
Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Love the concept: limited choice of small plates cold and hot, good list of wine with pairing suggestion for each plate. Sharing is expected and encouraged. The three of us had 4 small plates; mackerel, duck confit, eggplant flat bread and avocado on toasts. All of them delicious. To top it all, we shared a goat chese cake that was excellent. Prices are reasonable, from 8 to $15 plates, and 12 to $16 for glass of wine. Local is unpretentious, cozy and feels like a neighborhood bar. Overall, very nice.

“Loved the Cider and Tapas”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Very nice casual setting. We only planed to have drinks, then move on, but stayed and had heavy Tapas. The Cider flight was wonderful - dry. The food was very good and easy for the Tapas style we moved into. Our server was a rock star; friendly and very knowledgeable with menu. Such a great time sitting outside and relaxing.

“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.
