“Great service for wine tasting”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

We stopped at this wine bar since it was part of the wine tasting card we had purchased in Downtown Napa. At first, the girl that was our server seemed a bit busy to chat about the wines, but then someone else came over to talk about the wine and served us wagon wheel cheese to go along with the wine (yum!). We were allowed to try four wines and were pleased with all of them, but mostly the 40% Grenache (2012 d'Aupilhac CDL Lou Maset from France) that surprised all of us. It would have been nice to have tried more California wines to compare with the other boutiques in Downtown Napa (the wines we were given were from NY, Italy and France). After reading the reviews of the food, I wish now that we had more time to visit the store. It all looked and smelled so good! I will return when I get back to Napa Valley!

“So many options, so little time!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We stopped in here on a tip for a quick meal.....I could have spent the weekend!

There is something for everyone...from wood fired pizza, to tacos, to a t-bone steak. Great wines, great beers, I really didnt want to leave!

Wonderful bar service from the waiters. Excellent oysters, try the Sweetwater. Great California wine but, would have liked a few more varieties from Cali.

“Great Food!”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Don't miss this in the town of Napa! A bazar of food shops. Great clam chowder and oysters, great cheese shop, and there's a little pizza place with authentic Italian pizzas!
