This is such a unique place! You can sit on a couch, drink wine and visit with your friends. The servers are very friendly too!

Extensive wine selection by the glass and bottle. Also has full bar and food menu. Delicious selection of cheese/meat plates and other tapas style food.

Me and DH have been here twice. Food was very good to excellent, and the wine was awesome. They have the wines vacuum sealed for freshness. We still ended up spending as much as we would in a regular restaurant, but it was nice to eat a plate, decide how hungry we were, then order what we felt like. The only negative: the first time we were there we were seated next to a lively birthday celebration in one of the corner booths and asked to be moved; the second time I was seated under a light that felt like I was being interrogated - they dimmed the lights and it was better ;)

The wine selection is good for Jacksonville. It is a nice location to converse comfortably with friends and have a drink and some small plates.

Ovinte was an excellent tapas place (although it's a tad pricey). I would definitely return there for a special event. Our server was great and the staff made an extra effort to make sure we were warm enough (we were sitting outside on a chilly night. 2 thumbs up!
