“Fun sometimes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

When they have live music this is a place we end up sometimes after dinner to stretch the evening. Light fare to go along with their wine flights.

“Fun Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

Has a great selection of wines and other beverages. The waiters are very helpful in assisting you if you're not sure what to order. They also have tasty salads, sandwiches, and cheese plates. The entertainment is usually good, but get there early when there's a band because the place fills up fast. A great place to spend the evening when there are no sporting events on TV.

“Mediocre at best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

We went here Saturday evening at 6:45. The first disappointing sign was when I ordered the bubbly flight, 2 of the 3 wines were flat. Then we ordered a hot appetizer but were told the fryer wasn't on and wouldn't be ready for at least 30 minutes. Lastly, when we ordered a cordial "up" it was served chilled in a martini glass. The service was average at best. We were disappointed and did not feel valued.

“Not bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

Salt Creed Wine Bar is a bit of an oddity for downtown Brookfield. It has a very upscale feel, (or it wants to) but, at the same time, it often tries too hard. This is refreshing on one hand but sometimes these attempts fall flat. The wine selection and curation is excellent, the bar has a lot to offer and they do interesting things like have live jazz acts. The service is often slow, the food takes forever, (although it is generally good), and there seems to be some lack of organization. Salt Creek Wine Bar isn't bad at all, but there is a lot of room for improvement.
