Great selection of wine and some champagnes. The staff does a great job helping you pick based on your tastes and price range. I love the couches they are a perfect place to hang out talk or listen to the band. Only thing I would say is if you are looking for a quiet place check the band schedule because... More

The food was over-priced. It was put together quickly.. I was insulted that they would even serve it to us. The wine was over priced.. Not worth the time.

The staff is friendly and helpful and the wine selection is good. A recent addition of two large slot machines centered in the front, next to the bar were a poor addition and take away from the feel of the wine bar with it's jazz, eclectic bands and art. It seems to be trying to be both a bar bar... More

New owners who are trying to create an atmosphere to sip on a fine wine while eating small portions of food. The music can be a little over bearing at times. A nice place non the less.

When they have live music this is a place we end up sometimes after dinner to stretch the evening. Light fare to go along with their wine flights.

Has a great selection of wines and other beverages. The waiters are very helpful in assisting you if you're not sure what to order. They also have tasty salads, sandwiches, and cheese plates. The entertainment is usually good, but get there early when there's a band because the place fills up fast. A great place to spend the evening when... More

We went here Saturday evening at 6:45. The first disappointing sign was when I ordered the bubbly flight, 2 of the 3 wines were flat. Then we ordered a hot appetizer but were told the fryer wasn't on and wouldn't be ready for at least 30 minutes. Lastly, when we ordered a cordial "up" it was served chilled in a... More
