I don't do a lot of negative reviews but while the setting was great. So many bottles of wine all stacked correctly. The place was empty. It was a Thursday night and there was only one waiter working. He was not busy as it was...More

Great wine selection and wonderful food. Friendly professional staff and beautiful atmosphere. A little pricey but worth it.

This restaurant had been recommended to us by our hosts, and we were definitely glad we had taken their advice. The restaurant is more 'fine dining' than we were expecting, but the service is excellent and the restaurant is lovely. They seem to have a...More

Ideal setting, quiet, intimate, and classy. Wine selection has to be Cuenca's best. I'll never get the Sushi/Italian fusion of menus. The cook must have been in Kyoto for the past few years, even though his lineage is Italian. Sushi was complex yet delicate (salmon..incredible),...More

This is a wonderful restaurant with a varied menu and marvelous wine list. Wine is used as the decor and you feel you are dining in the wine cellar. You could walk right by during the day, but at dinner, the outside tables are set...More

It's a shame this place isn't more busy as it has a great riverside setting. Huge wine list with some real bargains on there, we tried a couple of appetizers that we're good but a bit ambitious - a Serrano ham dish that read well...More
