If you like wine this is it
An opportunity to try a VAST variety of wines from all over the world. Nice surroundings, good service and an interesting menu. Always a FUN night.

Noted chef change
This was our first time visiting after the chef change. Congrats to the promoted Exec Chef. The food was still quite good but we noticed the changes in the menu. There are less "foodie" options and more mainstream dishes (pizzas, typical desserts, etc.) I get it... give the people what they want and stuff. The soup du jour was disappointing (tomato with seafood ceviche). The lamb was decadent and savory. Great location, decor, and vibe. The servers are friendly and helpful. Overall, we'll return, but we're not in a rush to do so.

The food was outstanding!
The food was outstanding! Everything we ordered was amazing. My only issues would've been the menu online is different that the actual one. Not a lot of vegetarian options and the portions were rather small on some items (mainly the non meat ones, the meat portions were pretty large). My husband said the best part was the meatballs, so that is a great choice for an appetizer. Great service too.

We always enjoy!! This time,
We always enjoy!! This time, our server was invisible and we were left alone to enjoy a wonderful dinner without interruption every two minutes. Head chef was not present, but the #2 chef was DELIGHTFUL. Kitchen works VERY smoothly, with food delivery exceedingly well-paced. Staff understands the menu very well, and the self-service wine bar allows sampling of various wines, to find "just the right one." We shall return!!!

Fun wine tasting and a 3 oz.
Fun wine tasting and a 3 oz. pour is half the price of a 6 oz. pour so it's nice to taste various wines without the guilt of having to feel like you're getting more bang for your buck for the larger pour. It's nice to see the bottles in case you want to buy the bottle or drink it again later. Tables against wall were cramped and hostess sat all patrons along same wall when remainder of restaurant was empty. We kept having to move the table to avoid scraping against the chairs of other people dining nearby. Food is good. Portions are somewhat small.

Exceptional menu. Everything
Exceptional menu. Everything is prepared with the utmost attention to detail from the co-mingling of spices, heat and sweetness in perfect portions! Hats off to the chef!

Very nice experience. The
Very nice experience. The food was very good and the ambiance was quite nice. It's very nice to sit outdoors on the patio for dinner. One strange thing for a fine dining experience was that they didn't replace silverware between courses. The waiter took the fork and knife off the used plate and set them back on the table. Not what you'd expect. The wine list was great and the overall experience was great. We would go back again.

My husband and I had dinner Saturday night, our first time at Two 40 South. It was amazing! The ambiance was romantic, modern touches and very knowledgeable staff. Food was beautifully prepared. Let me just say...this is a TRUE find! We WILL be regulars at the wine bar!

AWESOME 60th Birthday Dinner Event
Reservations for my wife's 60th birthday were easily made via the internet. We actually arrived an hour earlier and were accomodated with our table immediately into a cozy shell booth with soothing music. Our server Mahyar made us feel most welcome and provided us with a informative tour of the menu as well as the wine bar. My wife chose the wine bar sips via a automated card, during which she chose a few delicious wines from appetizer to dinner to dessert. We shared a French Onion soup (with wonderful bread) which is a must, and did separate caesar and beet salads. I did the lamb duo and wife had the steelhead salmon which was eye candie, delicious, and generous in portions. We topped this meal off with a creme dessert. Thanks Mahyar!!!

Excellent place, food, and wine
I love this place, we frequently come for dinner - and this time, we tried their brunch. It was excellent - we will definitely come back for brunch to try other items on the menu. They change their menus frequently, so it's always nice to try other items which always excellent.
The wine selections is always good too, either from the menu or from the wine machine. They never disappoint us and each time we always looking forward to our next visit.

Delightful, as always! The
Delightful, as always! The roasted beet salad is divine, as well as the pizza (the crust especially). Kitchen staff is FUN to watch...true professionals at work! We are becomming twice-a-month fans, and will return within a fortnight. Until then.....

Excellence Service & Good Food
We celebrate my friend's birthday at this restaurant last weekend. Late sunday night, not too many customers. We ordered 2 filet steak and a bacon wrap duck. The food was great. Highly recommend people come here to enjoy a nice dinner with a glass of wine.

Great food, service needed work
Took my wife here for Mother's Day Brunch. The food was great and the desserts were even better! However, the service definitely needed help. We were sat 30 minutes after our reservation time (they opened at 10a. and our reservation was at 10a.). We had to wait an additional 20 minutes to receive any drinks, and even then we had to pull a waitress aside and ask if she could bring us drinks. Other servers kept passing by us and seeing that we had no drinks, yet none would offer any. It didn't seem like any servers were in charge of our section at all. Aside from the drink delay, everything else was very pleasant. They're spaghetti was great in flavor and as was the salmon. The cheesecake was my favorite of all the desserts!

If you like fine wines and great food, try Two 40 South. The food is excellent and they are set up to allow you to try any number of different wines either with or without dinner. The Mother's Day brunch was outstanding and we'll be going back for the Father's Day brunch. The staff is great and the ambience is outstanding. We travel a lot and see a lot of different restaurants, so we are picky. To find this restaurant right in our backyard was awesome.

Outstanding food & service
Visited Two 40 South with my daughters for Father's Day for the special 5 course meal. The food and service were outstanding. Every course was excellent! Will definitely go back!

Great Place for Date
Girlfriend and I went here for our one year anniversary, food was great, and service was even more amazing. They definitely went the extra mile to make our night special. Upon completely my reservation on opentable, i had explained in special requests that it was my girlfriend's and my anniversary, and the restaurant was kind enough to set up an amazing ambiance with extra candles at our table, along with every employee who served us wishing us a happy anniversary, it was definately something i will remember and be appreciative of, as they made our night that much more special. I would recommend this place for anyone looking for a nice place out, were the food and service is great, but still without killing your pocket. Great barrel wine

Great Food and Wine
I dined here with three friends last week for dinner. We ordered an appetizer that included pita bread, hummus, salsa, and guacamole. It was very good. We also enjoyed a great bottle of cabernet. We tried it first from the self-serve wine tasting machine. Two of my friends hadn't been to this wine bar before so I showed them how it worked. You are given a card to put into the machine which keeps tabs on your pours. You can choose from 40 or so white and red wines. It's a lot of fun to try different wines this way. The service was great, too. I definitely suggest that you try this restaurant!
6/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good place for a date night with the wife or Gf! Will be going back.
6/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice restaurant with outdoor space!
I'm not a wine connoisseur, but if you are- I think you may like this place. The foot was great. Had the filet and beets.

I took my girlfriend here for date night. The food and service was excellent, but I was a little let down by the lack of live music that was supposedly present on Saturday nights. Overall great experience, and would highly recommend!

Better than before
The new owner, manager & chef at The Barrel Room have breathed life into a restuarant locals fears would not survive. Dinner with friends was excellent, all 4 of us enjoyed our meals and agreed portions were able, a good value overall. Next visit we plan to sit on the side patio. The environment looked even more inviting than the previous layout. An enjoyable experience, we will definitely return.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
I'll be back!
We love The Barrel Room (Two 40 South) -- Dylan is a fabulous head chef!! Always creating scrumptious dining options. The wine has been re-priced. . .or more accurately. . .less expensive wines have been included in the Machine (Diners get a card and can 'help themselves' to a taste, a half glass, or a full glass). At dinner this time, we had wines that cost $30 and $25 per glass, and a $6 per glass wine -- all good choices. Nice, quiet atmosphere where conversation is encouraged. Outside on the patio, we noticed a painting class happening; we thought the amateurs were fabulous (with a bit of encouragement from the talented teacher). Next time, we'll have some wine and do some painting! Or, just sit and eat, drink and enjoy the merriment!

Loved our experience dining
Loved our experience dining in this neighborhood gem. Wonderful variety of menu items for lunch and especially enjoyed our pasta, gaspaho soup, wedding soup and caesar salad. Not only is the food incredible, but the service conducted by our outstanding waiter, David was noteworthy. We truly felt we were dining in a 5 star establishment with the fine service David provided us. Job well done

We were there to celebrate a special birthday. The service was very good and made my 16 year old niece feel very grown up. The food was good, and the pacing between the appetizer, entree and dessert was just right. The Black Forrest Cake was excellent and the perfect size to share. The only complaint we had was that brunch wasn't available on Saturday, and the web-site hadn't been updated.

We are patrons of this restaurant
We are patrons of this restaurant and am so glad that they have started to focus more on the quality of their dishes by slimming the menu. The food is definitely improving; much better appetizers, especially the southern shrimp which are outstanding. However, they need to do some tasting of their main courses. The scallops are great, but the bedding sauce is tasteless and not very pleasing to the eye. The side sauce with the shrimp is also tasteless. The ribs are still too dry. The burger is true to its name; it is the best I've had; truly great as are the fries. The deserts are also very good. The wine is priced fairly and the staff really works hard. Oh yes, the bread is outstanding. Keep getting better; we remain loyal.
