Excellent food with an impressive array of fine wines which the owner will help you select to complement your food.

Once again, great food and wine
Tastings is a regular for us due to the exceptional wine flights and knowledge of the owner about wine. The food is reliably good, but was exceptionally tasty tonight. Service, which can vary in friendliness and efficiency was high on both. Great place to pick a flight and ask Bill (owner) or waiter/waitress to suggest food to go with it. You will enjoy the adventure and maybe learn some new and interesting food and wine information

Worth the ride
We met another couple coming from an hour on the other side of Charlottesville. We gave our sommelier a taste range and a price range, and he served us to two different and equally satisfying reds. The menu was diverse, and we ordered accordingly. All meals were wonderful - meats, seafood, sides, appetizers. The servings were more than ample. We agreed that we would all eat and drink there again.

A lovely place to dine with friends
I used reviews for restaurants in Charlottesville to find a place where the food was good and the atmosphere was one that would allow pleasant conversation. We hit the mark with Tastings! We had a lovely evening catching up with our college son and his friend. We never felt rushed and it was quiet enough for good conversation. The food was also very good and it was fun to talk to the owner about wine choices. We are not wine connosieurs and he never made us feel lesser than because we didn't know our wine. He genuinely wanted us to have a great experience and to help us find something we would like.

Lots of good wine choices; we had four. Excellent wild mushroom entree and Sherwood Farms filet. Service was attentive and we had good conversations with long-time owner Bill.

This is a small hole in the wall place with excellent food and a great wine selection. The owner will come to your table and suggest
wine pairings that are right on the dot. No fuss, no attitude, just great wines and delicious food. We were very happy we came here during our weekend visit to Charlottesville.

We really enjoyed the ambiance and combination of selecting wine from the retail shop to pair with our dinner. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The menu was very eclectic and ambitious, some of our selections were excellent some missed their mark. However it was an overall fun experience and we will return next time in Charlottesville.
