This was a pleasant surprise.
This was a pleasant surprise. The food was outstanding - I enjoy the "small plate concept" The wine I found a little pricey but very good. I will return

Great little spot with a fun tapas menu and excellent food.Wine list by the glass was light and I would have liked to see an oakey Chardonnay on the list. Location is not great as there is alot of construction in the area and it's not very easy to find.

Excellent food and wine, Tapas gem
For me the best way to get the most out of eating at wine bar is enjoying the recommended wines with each course. This really enhances the flavour and the experience is very complete - and as intended! This makes for a really great meal, especially dessert! A full meal enjoyed this way will be much more like $50-75 per person after tax+tip (not the $35 I see mentioned some places). I've also found there are usually enough items on the menu to satisfy a vegetarian, without a lot of choice however, but probably not a vegan as various excellent cheeses are featured throughout the menu. A warning... some of the plates are very small and leave you wanting more.

Great but portions were much too small for the price. Mushroom poutine was fantastic.

Good quality but portions small
Very unique flavours and tasty, especially the crime brûlée. However, the portions were just a tad too small.

A Golden Gem
The Wine Bar was recommended by a co-worker. I've read other reviews regards to portion sizes etc. But remember it's a Tapas Restaurant, so the sizes will be small. The food is very flavourful! 4 of us dined and ate to our hearts content for just under $150. The prices are reasonable don't let any other review tell you it's not. You are getting what you paid for. Wait staff was great and knowledgeable on the food they were serving. This will definitely be a place I will visit again.

I hesitated before choosing The Wine Bar because some reviews were bad. But I was pleasantly surprised to find great food at a reasanable price. The service was also great. My mother, who complains a lot, told the waitress that other than one small thing it was all great. The waitress came back with another plate of the same tapas but with a different swing to it. This time, my mother couldn't complain at all. Don't rely on the other bad reviews. I've been to tapas restauranss in Montreal, California, New York and Europe. The size of the portions are like any other tapas restaurant.

I found this restaurant on Open Table. After looking at the menu and some pics of the place, I decided to check it out with a friend. When we were arrived we were immediately greeted with a warm welcome and promptly seated. The restaurant is small but seats a good number of people. There a bar and an open kitchen that you can sit in front of and watch meals being prepared. The noise level is energetic, but you can still here the music, and hold a conversation with those sitting with you. My friend and I had almost everything on the menu during our evening. They've done a good job with combining flavours and presenting it very well. I don't think any of you would be disappointed with this restaurant. Enjoy.

I always enjoy the small plates,
I always enjoy the small plates, the ever-changing menu, and the great wine selection. It's my go-to choice for pre event dining, if I'm attending something at the St. Lawrence Centre, the Sony Centre, or Canstage Berkeley St.

I'd walked by this place a dozen times and never noticed it. After finding it on Open Table this past week and dining there on Friday night, I can say that I'll never look past Wine Bar again. The service was great. Our waiter had excellent character and took great care of us. He had great recommendations and made us feel at home. The location was subtle yet tasteful. The wine bottle-wrapped wall and exposed brick made for great ambience. The food was some of the most delicious we've had in a while. Even the drinks (a Caesar and a Pimm's & Ginger) was top notch. Don't leave without trying the Brie Phyllo. Wow! Best of all, including a drink and several tapas, we spent around $65 total for the two of us. We will be back!

Went as group of 10. Admittedly we were a bit loud and a bit difficult. The service was amazing and patient. Thank you to wine bar

Wine Bar Rocks
I'm a frequent patron of Wine Bar and will continue to keep going back. The food is amazing and changes daily with a seafood, red meat, vegetarian and poutine option each night. Great atmosphere and an incredible wine list. Service has been incredible and make sure you opt for the chef's bar to watch you meal taking shape.
