“Small shop, big experience”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

I have been to Barrel Thief many, many times with my husband or with girlfriends. Each time the wine selections are great (although available from a specific region each night.) and the snacks yummy! The staff are VERY knowledgeable and helpful, allowing multiple tastings to help you make the right selection. Love a great wine the shop doesn't carry? Ask and they will move mountains to order it for you!

“Nice but....”
Reviewed July 30, 2011

The wine selection and knowledge of the staff is excellent, but the food service is painfully slow. The food choices were quite unique and were a good compliment to the wine-by-the-glass options. Other than the slow service, a good experience.
