We could not have found a more perfect place to hang out on a beautiful sunny day. Service was great just not so great for the staff outside. The heavy door made it difficult for them to go in and out of the restaurant. The Sunday Bloody Mary was great, the blueberry with fresh fruit was good but not as... More

Looking for something a little different on my final night in Indianapolis I took the advice of the reviews and visited on a Saturday night. What a unique experience. We chose to sit at the bar surrounding the food preparation area. There is a great range of various wines from sweet white to robust reds to try with a simple... More

Thot the idea of a bunch of tastings was very cool so we went here on a romantic weekend...the prices per 2oz pour were INSANE!!! We left feeling like we should have taken out a loan!! Very disappointed.

Hi Cassie, I would like to personally apologize that your evening at Tastings was anything less than amazing. We pride ourselves on being able to offer quality wines by the taste as well as by the glass, which may have been the more affordable option in this particular case.

A friend and I visited the Indiana Statehouse for a House committee meeting and stopped by here afterwards. Our server (I think his name was Kiernan) walked us around the place pointing out the wines and explaining how tasting works. He was exceptionally helpful and attentive.

This place offers the opportunity to try an amazing array of wines. It's great for those who are not wine aficionados, and the staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. Kelly was our server, and she made us feel welcome and comfortable. Her wine recommendation was spot-on!

Pretty good concept allows you to sample many different kinds of wine that you might not otherwise try. With small portions you can taste many bottles in one evening. The Cabernet and Merlot section is equal in size to the Spain and Italian section and the "interesting red section". So there's lots of variety but limited selection in each category.... More
