Four of us had yet another fabulous meal. We each had something different and all was better than expected. Wonderful. Perfect! It was everything and then some of what one expects and hopes for when eating out.

I haven't been to Cave Vin in a long time, and I honestly cannot remember why. The space is small and intimate, perhaps a little dated, but the owners are doing small renovations in stages. My friends and I went for our usual Friday night...More

We made reservations for 31 May about a month ago. We got a call today, 29 May, that they will be closed for a private event. Thanks for all the notice. Based on this terrible customer service we won't bother trying again.
