The food was alright, not
The food was alright, not the best, and not the worst either. Our waitress forgot about us for a good 15 minutes after we were seated, but overall it was a good experience. They have a few kinks to work out, but have a great idea going. Bottles of wine are 50% on Sundays!

Great wine list and appetizers.
Great wine list and appetizers. While the selection of the main courses was somewhat limited, the food was very tasty.

s l o w ...but GOOD!
We were a party of 6 and non of us had ever been there. The place is tiny but they do have outdoor seating. Large wine list, everyone enjoyed there food. The only thing that they can work on is the service, pretty slow. Overall I will go again!

Fantastic Tapas and Wine Bar
Fantastic wine list and the service staff are great at picking out wine if you aren't so good at it. We had a hard time picking out what to eat because everything sounded so delicious! We'll definitely be back.

I appreciated that the wait
I appreciated that the wait staff was attentive and considerate. Since there was no demand for our table they allowed two ladies to talk way into the night without "suggesting" that we might order more food or beverage. The food was very good, too!

We loved our experience there
We loved our experience there and the food/wine were wonderful, made all the better by a coupon we had for free corkage. Slower pace, small plates and relaxed atmosphere made for a perfectly comfortable, unhurried and pleasant experience. We will be back and next time with friends! We heartily recommend this unique and lovely little find. And believe me, we are extremely picky about where we eat out as my husband is an excellent cook and we find it difficult to find a place worthy of our money and dining expectations.

A wine lover's paradise
A friend suggested the 4 of us meet for dinner at Red Room. It's a tiny place, and even though its close by, we'd never eaten there before. The food was lovely, and is largely focused on tapas, but what sets this place apart is the wine list and the owner's knowledge of it. Appetizers were great as were the main courses. Even the deserts were superb. But the wines were to die for. They even have some great ones by the glass, so if you don't want a whole bottle, you can still have a great glass of wine with dinner. Highly recommended.

Dined here 3X in last few wks
This is a great wine bar with good food too - small plates and regular dinners. Short ribs - tender and great. Salmon was prepared perfectly. Flat breads - we have had several of them are great too. Lamb meatballs and brucheta were very tasty. Good wine list and very friendly service. We have sat inside and outside - outside is nice during the summer though does overlook parking lot. Would definitely recommend.

My favorite neighborhood restaurant
Love this place! The wine list features wines from around the world hand picked by the owner, all great and reasonably priced. We usually let the staff pick the wine for us after explaining what we're in the mood for, and a few tastings. The food is excellent, especially the kale salad and the rib. This place is small and usually full so make reservations, even if it's just a few hours before you want to go.

This one is a regular on my list.
Been here 5 or more times. Always pleasant, good wine, good ambience, good service. It is very small and intimate which I like.

Love this place!
Love the ambiance. Dimmly lit and Romantic but also good times with a few friends around the fire pit. Excellent short ribs and salads. Wine and beer lists from around the world. I had a Cab from Argentina! So incredible! My friend loved her beer from Spain. Staff always friendly and attentive. Great low key music. And it's in the VALLEY! Can't wait to go again!

The Encino Hide Away
This place is a little gem with great food and wine with a really romantic and intimate vibe... Trendy and fairly priced will go back to choose from the more than 100 wine selections and have a tapas along with it. Loved it!

I was looking for a small romantic evening with my wife and chose the Red Room at the recommendation of a friend. The indoor dining area was small but cozy, and they had a large outdoor patio. We chose to sit inside and immediately decided we would stick to tapas and a bottle of wine. My wife is a little picky with wine so she described her preference to the server. He recommended a bottle of red that opened up nicely and complimented everything we ate. The tuna tartar was awesome, and the kale salad to die for. We also got the asparagus flatbread and added chicken to half and prosciutto to the other. Towards the end of our evening the Sommelier came over and talked a bit. He was a friendly gentlemen and extremely knowledgable. Eat here!
