“If not for the owner this place would be great”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Been coming here since they opened, tonight we parked in designated parking spot for bar-we came out & were boxed in by a car. We asked in wine bar if they knew what was up since someone put a sign on our car saying "leased parking only". We were not parked in front of any sign that said that. Finally the owner of the wine bar came out laughing! Saying we were parked in employee parking. ....huh??? It said wine bar parking. Well she said they'd just put the sign up. That doesn't make any sense since it said wine bar pArking. Just laughed, never apologized. Loved this place, won't be back. Seems trivial perhaps but this is the owner. Could have asked in the bar if the car belonged to anyone.

“Great food, fantastic service!!”
Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

Showed up with a big group, little kids and grown ups. The staff ensured we all had a great time and all found something on the menu. Pizza for the kids, Pasta and salad for adults. Extensive wine list. Very accommodating. I guess this is why it's my favorite place in alex!!

“Big step forward for Alexandria”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

This is a nice wine bar, great ambiance and a big step up from most Alexandria bars/restaurants. Good selection of both wines and beers (but all the beers are bottled, no draft beer at least in May). Appetizers are great but don't try to have a meal here if they are busy - long long wait.

“I love this place!”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

This is one of my favorite places in town to meet a friend over a glass of wine. Some nights it can get a little crowded and busy in there. The decor is very nice and the owners are too.
