“after five years most reastaurants have closed this one just gets better!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Freinds in the food and wine industy took my wife and I to dinner to BarVino last night. Wow! It
remains as fresh as it was when it opened 5 years ago. There is one small difference- it is a pollished gem. Some of the best food between NYC and Montreal is here. This place cuts no corners, it has the edge of a city restaurant with a the true warmth of a neighborhood place. Mike and his daughter Anna keep the front cranking with a great team while brother Luke and his childhood friend Kevin make the kitchen hum like a fine tuned instrument. They don't take reservations so get there early. Great wine and the beer program could turn a wine person into a beer person.

The best news is there is a great pizza joint right across the street. Just the perfect place to send the kids as this is a place for adults that love to enjoy food and wine!!

“Incredible Surprise”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

This is a fantastic wine bar in North Creek that also has over 50 beers available as well. The wine list is extensive and well thought out with fantastic pricing. Tapas (small plates) of creative for purchase with your drinks. For those not familiar with tapas, you must order er a number of different items if you want to make a dinner of it. Over two days, I tried a fried brussell sprout dish with pine nuts and lime that was killer, Seared Scallops, Blood Sausage over mashed potatoes, and Llama Meatballs. The next day, I enjoyed the one dinner size meal steak and frites preempted by a fresh greens salad. The tender steak is organically grown and the fries were crispy and seasoned with Sea Salt. I look forward to returning soon!

“Excellent food, wine and atmosphere”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

The salads and mussels were delicious. The plates are enough to share. Good wine by the glass selection.

“Absolutely Fabulous”
Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

North Creek has a wonderful assortment of restaurants and BarVino is a foodies delight. The wine bar atmosphere with fireplace is casual, but elegant. The meals were absolutely delicious and the wine and beer selection excellent. Our whole group came from a ski day at Gore Mt. and we're pleased to find such a high end, casual restaurant right in North Creek Village! It was a perfect ending to a wonderful day, loved it!
