Soif Wine Bar Restaurant
Soif presented the best listSoif presented the best list of wines by the glass I can recall. We enjoyed four French wines (including a Sauterne dessert wine). The list of beers was about as good. The food was first rate. We hail from Los Angeles. If this meal could be replicated here (perhaps a handful of places could match the wines by the glass), the tab would easily be about $150 higher.
We try to frequent Soif whenever we are in town.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExperience SoifSoif is a small local restaurant that offers a wonderful wine selection/wine shop, and very delicious food. I always find some very delicious meals and dishes at soif, and the paired wines allow me to try a larger selection of wines than I would find on my own. Highly recommended.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favs....We have eaten at Soif many times; it is one of the best places in Santa Cruz, in our opinion. We feel as though we are in SF or some other big city setting when we eat there. We have never been disappointed and the vast wine list and the wait people's knowledge makes for a perfect evening every time. Soif always has something new on the menu and always something unique that you won't find elsewhere. So glad they are there!!!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA wine bar with a top qualityA wine bar with a top quality chef. Food is consistently excellent, from first to last course and from one visit to the next.

As alwaysFantastic all around. As always the small plates were amazing - the piquillo peppers and melted manchego cheese are wonderfully rich and perfect with the homemade bread and top notch olive oil. The tarte tartin dessert with a little scoop of vanilla ice cream was great. Wait staff always have great wine suggestions - but go for the pairings suggested on the menu.

The Windy Oaks pinot noirs paired with each course were diverse and interesting. It was nice to meet and chat with Jim of Windy Oaks.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
