4 of us went to the corner
4 of us went to the corner wine bar last night and we all really enjoyed ourselves. It was my wife's first time there and she found it remarkable. Our server Sam helped us out with a glorious romp through the manager's bin. Topped off the night be slipping down into the cellar for some live music. Very nice evening!

Almost not Quite
Only two observations that would have made the dinner more memorable, one that could be more easily remedied than the other. My tilapia's butter sauce was swimming in it almost to the point where that's all I could taste. I know they're looking for flavor, but maybe a little more seasoning and less on the butter.
The other issue that made the evening difficult was the sound level. "Vibrant" doesn't need to be "can't partake in a conversation." We were seated immediately next to the stairway so a great deal of traffic going up and down so that didn't help. Next time, and there will be one, we will ask for a window table. Flaws excluded, we will be back.

$20 wine bottle surprise
Great food and service. $20 mystery bottle was great selection.

Fabulous wine choices! Food was tasty, my Ginger Honey pork was a bit salty, but everything else was great! We will definitely go back again when we are in Indy!

We went here for dinner as a family of 5 - we chose it because it was part of the Chow Down Midtown and we had never been here before. They have a kids menu - not extensive - but they have one and our son had breakfast for dinner (he loved that). We all chose dinner from the Chow Down Midtown menu and 3 of us had the filet and one had the fish. Everything was delicious - except one of the filets was really tough and not good. Other than that the service was great and so was the wine! I would certainly recommend it and will go back.

Chow Midtown pick
Hadn't been here, and this was a good reason to finally try it. Glad we went early evening instead of later (to beat crowds). Beautiful evening to sit outside. Server was very friendly and attentive. Food options were good and tasty; enjoyed the Chicken with Tarragon sauce. Since I'm a healthy eater, I wished the "Summer Fruit Trifle" had more fruit and way less of the white cake. Didn't try (or even look at) the wine list since I had to drive afterward.

We chose Corner Wine Bar as part of the Indianapolis Chow Mid-Town promotion; therefore, we had a special menu. The value for the money was outstanding! Often, the promotion's menu does not feature a filet mignon, but Corner Wine Bar did. It was a special treat to receive a salad, entree, AND dessert for $19.95 each. Sitting outside was perfect also. We will be back.

Waitress was great and helpful.
Waitress was great and helpful. The filet was great but the lime pie was the star. Light and airy, wonderful ending to a good meal.

My boyfriend and I came here
My boyfriend and I came here to celebrate a special occasion and we absolutely could not have asked for more. The service was spectacular and overwhelmingly the best part of the night. The food was quite excellent, we can during Chow Down Midtown and the amount of food we got for the special price was great. We sat outside, which was quite lovely.

Wonderful Night Out
My husband and I had a very enjoyable evening at The Corner Winebar. We went for Chowdown Midtown. The menu selections were varied. We each picked different things from each category. Everything we selected was well-prepared, pleasantly presented and delicious. We ate outdoors - the weather was perfect. After dinner, we went to the downstairs bar and enjoyed a very entertaining band.

Broad Ripple Favorite
We celebrated a birthday here during Chow Down Midtown and enjoyed our meal. The atmosphere was cozy, the service was efficient and unobtrusive, and the food was delicious. My partner chose the Chicken Pate appetizer, which was his favorite thing about the whole meal. He raved about how creamy it was and how he could eat it as an entrée. My appetizer of tomato and buffalo mozzarella was a bit boring in contrast. The restaurant has a nice selection of wine flights which we really wanted to try, but didn't because of our long drive home. We both chose the same entrée, the Tarragon Chicken, which was juicy and flavorful. It came with sautéed snow peas and a very sweet carrot soufflé. The different textures and flavors melded nicely.

We were there when the outside
We were there when the outside was closed due to a storm. Really was looking forward to being outside.

Glad we visited again!
Been a while since we've been to CWB but the Chow Down Midtown deal was too good to pass up. We were not disappointed & will be adding this place to our regular rotation.

Sweet corn ravioli a must!
Best seat in Broad Ripple, great wine and the most delicious meal. Sweet corn ravioli followed by chocolate cake was outstanding.

It was our first time dining at The Corner Wine Bar and we ate outside. The talapia was excellent. We were a disappointed that they do not offer more of a variety of wine by the glass; after all, I hear it is a wine bar?

Great Broad Ripple spot
Being a wine bar, you expect a good wine list, but this place is extraordinary. Great ambience and plenty of outdoor seating. In a great spot just off Broad Ripple Ave.

Nice evening with friends
Food is very good. Although overall it's pricey, there is a specialty menu with lower prices -- which is great.
Would recommend it for sure.

Our recent visit started out
Our recent visit started out with a bottle of wine and a beautiful selection of cheese. We finished our evening off with the salmon and shrimp po boy...delicious. Service was excellent. We will be visiting again...very soon!!!

One of the best cheese plates we have ever ordered.
Finally someone at the table ordered the chocolate cake. It was worth the wait.
"A Touch of 'Grass" is the house band and always a delight.

Wonderful wine and food
Enjoyed the interesting wine selections. Enjoyable compliment to a fabulous meal. Interesting menu with items like carrot souffle that is to DIE for! Wonderful unique meal.

Best for Wine Food and Conversation
The Corner Wine Bar is a great intimate spot for those who want to enjoy wine, food and company. The wine selection is superb. The food choices are great. We started with the fromage, a selection of three cheeses with apple. The menu has a wonderful selection of soups, salads and entrees. Having enjoyed the cheeses and apple, I selected three of their fabulous vegetable sides for a satisfying meal. We love 2-3 hour dinners to enjoy each other and totally relax, and this is a perfect spot!

On Oct. 24th, my husband and I treated Dad, Daughter, and significant others to dinner. Our server, Matt (I think?...sorry... ) was outstanding: courteous, friendly, and knowledgeable.
GOOD: Baked goat cheese appetizer was a wonderful surprise. Burgers, S'mores and Cheesecake got good reviews.
SO-SO: 1) The chicken was dry in the Tarragon & Champagne dishes; the accompanying Carrot Souffle' helped the Tarragon Chicken, and the sauces were nice (though there wasn't enough); but both still needed better meat preparation. 2) Baked tomato app: disappointing-a bit of cheese over a warm but raw tomato.
OTHER: Ricotta over the Butternut Squash Ravioli was overkill; it would do fine with just sage, brown butter, and maybe some grated cheese.

Always a great pick
With pages of wines by the glass or bottle, wine flights, and specials, Corner Wine Bar is a perfect place for wine enthusiasts. They have a varied menu and a quaint setting. Always a special night.

We have been here a few times now and love it. It is a cute spot. The gemelli pasta is my favorite dish.

We celebrated an engagement at the Corner Wine Bar, and the staff was outstanding!! They made our special event even more special with their care and attention. Many, many thanks to the whole crew!!!
