“Great food, cocktails and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012

Had a great dinner at Old Vines Wine bar this past Friday. Great food, killer cocktails and a nice relaxing atmosphere. We had some cheese selections and the duck prosciutto, all were wonderful. Friend had the meatloaf panini and I had the flatbread pizza. Both were really really good. Just right after the long drive up to Maine from southeastern Mass. The cocktails were just wonderful. I had the rye manhattan, ok, more than one...maybe 3...friend had something made with blood orange juice that was very nice also. Friend switched to a beer that was like 10.3% so he had a great evening! Went back for drinks the next night. Wish we lived closer!

“Great happy hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2012 via mobile

We were lured in by $5 martinis and wine from 5-6:30. This is a very civil happy hour for those who have to work and don't want to go out at 3 or 4 pm just to get a bargain. Perfect touch on the dirty martini and the paninis are big enough to share. Very nice experience. Scott the bartender is very knowledgeable and a lovely host along with the owner.

“Great fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2012

We stopped here for a glass of wine before dinner at another restaurant and had so much fun that we cancelled our reservations and stayed here for tapas! The bartender gave us good recommendations for wine and food and just enough attention. We sat at the bar and enjoyed meeting a few of the 'locals'...great evening for us!
