The wine bar is small but very cozy . We had a reservation and arrived about 15 minutes early but our table was waiting. We were extremely pleased with the food, service and the prices.

I had a craving for dessert and came here. We ordered the gluten free cake, creme brûlée and cheesecake. Creme brûlée was ok but the cakes were spectacular. The wine pairing recommended by our server didn't work that well but was still ok.
