Just a great place. Bar is
Just a great place. Bar is fun and have great happy hour specials. Dinner is great too. Can do a bunch of small plates to share or large entrees. Also has a smoking room for those that like a cigar after dinner.

We went from seven to five
We went from seven to five people and they still sat us within minutes. We ordered a couple of appetizers for the table and then a few small and large plates and no one went hungry. Everything was great, especially the scallop special and the tagliatelle on the menu.

The Wine Bar is Saratoga Springs'
The Wine Bar is Saratoga Springs' best kept secret. The food was delicious and so well prepared, and the wine list was thorough and offered a variety of quality selections. The atmosphere works for any occasion. A celebratory dinner or romantic date? The Wine Bar is the place to go. Or would if you're simply looking to enjoy a class of wine or a cigar with your scotch, there's a place for you at the Wine Bar as well. Most people are thrown off by the name - why would we go there for the food? But don't be fooled, the Wine Bar serves wonderful dishes that compliment their wine list.

Our family of 8 had a great meal at this restaurant. We shared a variety of interesting appetizers and cheese platters, so we really appreciated that the menu offered "small plate" options for most of the entrees. Our waiter Nick was very patient with us, and the service overall was attentive without being obtrusive. The wine list was extensive and in addition to by the bottle and by the glass, smaller tasting portions were available. We were seated in the lower level of the restaurant, which was attractive and comfortable; the outdoor patio, which had smaller tables, would be a great place to people-watch.

Great wine, good food
Party of four had dinner at the wine bar on a Saturday night. Waitress was very attentive. When we couldn't make up our minds regarding wine choice she brought several to sample. Food was very good, beef was prepared exactly as ordered. The only complaint was the noise level-A bit loud for easy conversation. Other than that it was a great dining experience.

Fun with friends
The Wine Bar is a dependable downtown spot. Reasonable wine by the glass and small plates and entrees to share. The staff was very friendly and helpful, very apologetic when there was a short delay seating us.

We came because the wine list appealed to my husband. We were pleased to discover excellent food. Everything we ordered was great in terms of quality of ingredients and preparation. The half portions offered were just the right size for us.

I've been dining here for years and the food is consistently excellent. The food is freshly prepared and seasonal, so there isn't a huge menu. Of course, it is known for its wine list, and there is an abundant selection of wines by the glass if you don't want a whole bottle. You can order a selection of appetizers and small plates if you like to sample more dishes; many of the appetizers are also available in an entree size, but I find the smaller one sufficient. The salads are also excellent.
The service is very friendly, don't be put off by the sophisticated décor.

This place was perfect for a wonderful tapas-y dinner. Food and service were both great! Our reservation was well-handled. And Monday night was perfect for a quiet romantic time.

A good find
We have been meaning to try The Wine Bar, but it was always so busy during the summer season. We found a less busy weekday evening in Autumn. A great "go to" place for dinner or just several appetizers and to try some great glasses of wine.
