I've eaten here on several occasions throughout the year. Each visit was superb. Weather permitting you should sit outside to enjoy the city sounds, people watching, and the nearby fountain. The service has always been excellent; friendly and quick staff.
Chances are, if you're coming here it's for the wine. That being said, don't overlook the food menu! Surprisingly this little place cooks up some great dishes. Their soups are always delicious and I've had the potato gnocchi (red onions could have been cooked perhaps a bit longer), crab cakes, the warm brie & honey, and the roasted chicken breast. All of them were very good.
Now, the most important part - the wine. Normally you'd expect a markup at a restaurant, but I'm fairly certain these bottles are marked up only a dollar or two, if anything at all. Earlier this week I had a bottle of 2010 Duckhorn Merlot and the cost was the same as any wine store. The selection isn't gargantuan but it certainly has variety -- some local VA wines as well as the Napa Valley staples, plus others from around the country/world.
I wouldn't call Grand Cru cheap, but it certainly is a bargain for what I feel you get. Definitely recommend.
