We went during Happy Hour; got seated quickly - but when we left; the wine bar outside was packed and the line was nearly out the door to sit.

People seem to go there for the wide selection of wine. With Happy Hour, we got the house wine - which was good, but not great - yet better than the house wine at most places.

They have a good selection of appetizers; as a big party - we tried several - a nice bruschetta, hummus with carrots and cauliflower inside, carne asada flatbread. There were several other choices such as mexican egg rolls, crispy brussels sprouts, goat cheese flatbread - a decent variety beyond - maybe a dozen choices.

The place is big; ceiling is easily 16' up - and can be noisy as it is a wide open atmosphere.

For us, service was pleasant, fast, all questions answered - water refilled regularly, drink orders taken quickly - yet realize we "beat the crowd".

Dinners ran a huge variety and were above average in size - can get meat, fish, vegetarian, chicken - all generally mixed with vegetables and some sort of sauce. Food was filling and tasty.

Was here on a quiet Tuesday afternoon. Had the shrimp and scallop risotto, and it was just okay. I was sort of sad they took the mustard pretzel maple pork chop off the menu - big mistake, that was the best thing ever.
Ordered a S'more dessert to go, got back to my room and later than night went to have it, and it was key lime pie - blech.
This really is a winery atmosphere, and they do tend to push the wines and the wine club, but you just need to say no if you want.

This restaurant is not concerned about a good dining experience. Though excellent food and wine, the noise level is unbearable. Conversations at the table are almost impossible to hear.

We enjoyed a nice evening here. Next time I think we will try the wine tasting before dinner, since that seems to be the shtick of this restaurant.

The food, wine and service were excellent. Our group ordered the filet, the medallions, scallops, and a couple variations of surf and turf. All excellent and although I didn’t try them, apparently the scallops were exceptionally good. Unfortunately, the design and furnishings of the restaurant make it extremely loud so conversation is difficult. Just enjoy the food and wine.
