    We went to Tangled Vine a lot in its first years and then stopped going because the menu got a little old. It has been refreshed with some great additions, without throwing out the old standards. This is the unusual wine bar/restaurant that is good at both wine and food. The wine list is extensive, remarkably so by the glass, and the food is top notch and affordable. We'll return again soon.

    The restaurant is cute and in a great location/neighbourhood. However, it was quite noisy and thus, difficult to have a conversation. The waitress was a bit slow, and therefore, seemed neglectful. It took quite a long time for her to come to our table so we could just order drinks. We order a bottle of white wine which was not cold and needed to be put on ice before it was drinkable. Our red wine was delicious. The food was only fair; nothing to write home about and difficult to share.

    Terrific find! We went for an early dinner found a very friendly wait staff - kudos to Whitney for making us feel so welcome. Happy hour from 5-7 had some great wines on the list. My husband and I shared the Prosciutto and pears, cerviche and ravioli All were delicious! Can't wait to go back and try some other dishes!

    Went for dinner with my family and decided to stick with a selection of small plates. It was all good, and the seviche was absolutely excellent.

    I found Tangled Vine through a ScoutMob coupon. So having $20 off was great. The hostess was wonderful, but our waitress basically forgot about us for 30 minutes. My guest and I were having a great time talking but then there's that point where you wish she would have checked upon you already. So we had to flag her down to order. But the food was GREAT. Reasonably priced, fresh ingredients, diverse menu, and affordable. I would definitely go back.

    Food was really good. Service was very slow - took 20 minutes to order a drink. I think they were short staffed. Would go back.

    We live 16 blocks away, and we had never had the opportunity to venture inside. What a mistake. It was well worth the walk on a Sunday afternoon. Appetizers were great, and the wine list perfect for the low-key neighborhood establishment. Excellent staff, and an overall delight. We plan to return soon!

    excited to see this gem on open table! the wine selection is great, but they make wonderful cocktails. The best small plate is definitely the mushroom arancini -- i could eat them all day! The baked ricotta and veal meatballs were terrific as well. I love the ambiance here; it is cozy but not tiny; they offer suggestions and check in but definitely don't rush you or pressure you to order more/certain things. totally love this place!
