    My boyfriend and I came here Saturday night to start off our date night and we were thoroughly impressed! The venue was quiet, secluded and really romantic. The service was impeccable! We had the chef hand pick the meats and cheeses for our charcuterie board and it was fantastic! Great wine selection too, we will definitely be back!

    The wine room is a hidden gem. Very small, so make reservations. It was perfect for sipping wine, nibbling and sharing great conversation. This place is not meant for dinner, but a sophisticated place to be with friends and relax. Beautiful decor and amazing service.

    We were 10 minutes early for our 9 p.m. reservation so we were seated at the bar. We ordered a glass each and were looking to order apps, but were totally ignored. By 9:30, our glasses had been empty for 25 minutes, our table had been given away and the three staff members all seemed surprised that we had been waiting for a table. No apology, no offer to put more wine in our glasses, just "well, it'll be a few minutes then". So, we just paid for our glasses and left. As a former server, there have been only two times in history where I have not left a tip. This was one of them, and it was absolutely warranted. The lovely server at Boston Pizza across the street, whose service put the Wine Room's to shame, got their share of the gratuity.

    Went with friends on the recommendation of a local foodie and was not disappointed. The charcuterie platters were fantastic, the wine was exceptional, and the service was very attentive and friendly. The menu might benefit from a couple of cheaper wine options for the price conscious people that want to have a couple of glasses and sample the food.

    Loved our first visit to The Wine Room! The atmosphere when you walk in is just what you expect for a wine room. The decor looks like you have walked into a Wine Keg. The service and knowledge level from our server was outstanding. His recommendations were exactly what we wanted and expected. The food presentation was creative and interesting. We will definitely be back to sample more wines and the other food items.

    My wife loved a good charcuterie, so for a special occasion about a month ago, I took her to The Wine Room. We loved the wine options and the ability to sample so many great wines by the glass was fantastic. When the charcuterie board came out we were blown away by the variety (and sheer volume) of delicious cheese, meats olives and fresh fruit! We have become regulars now at The Wine Room and have never left unsatisfied. Keep up the great work folks. We will see you again very soon!

    Came across this jem of a location and within a few weeks dined 4 times. It's a perfect place to catch up with a few girlfriends/boyfriends, or spend a great time chatting with your partner. The music will always make you smile, and so will the wine. Enjoying my wine as much as I do, this is a great way to taste some of those "limited" and expensive wines to expand my tastebuds. The charcuterie is amazing.

    Wine list is extensive and bottles expensive, but you can get 1 oz or 10 in a glass. Could use some more malbecs on the list. Hot appys were delicious. Great late night wine and cheese bar. No entrees so don't go hungry. Warm ambience.

    Two girlfriends & I were all 1st-time patrons of The Wine Room on Wed, Aug 27/2014. It DEFINITLEY won't be our only visit! What a wonderful evening from start to finish! The ambiance was inviting & intimate with an old world winery decor with subtle, but convenient, modern touches. Our goal was to sample several wines (there are over 20 wines available by the oz or glass) with appropriate food pairings (eg: the charcuterie boards offer amazing combinations). We were not disappointed! Our "Captain" on this journey, was Kenny, and his knowledge was only bested by his enthusiasm for the varietals on offer! Guided by his recommendations, our epicurean tour was a very satisfying meld of social interaction meets taste extravaganza!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/14/2014
    The food is very good, the wine list is diverse, and everything we've ever had there is very good. It's not a full bar, per se, instead having a lovely selection of cognac and porto. The ambiance is exquisite - unless the part-owner (the male one) and his friends are around. And that's the fly in the ointment every time. This part-owner is a hillbilly. A baseball cap may be tolerable if you're at a sports bar, but in this incredibly fine establishment, which has gone so far to build a classy ambiance, it's a sty. Frankly, it's embarrassing. You just don't feel like ordering a $30 cognac when the guy in the table beside you is wearing a ball cap and a wife-beater.

    I had walked by this place several times not realizing its existence, but when the search for a local Charcuterie led us to find it, it was like striking gold. Its dim lighting and cask ceiling made for a cozy, almost romantic ambience. The servers were attentive and friendly. The selection of fare was focused and tasty. Plan on around $100 for a bottle with food options. I'll be going back.

    We found this gem on open table and were very impressed. They have a good size wine list with some a fantastic charcuterie board, as well as delicious small plates. The room has a round ceiling; lots of dark wood; the lighting is dark and relaxing; the seating is very comfortable and private. It is definitely one of the most classy and authentic wine bars in Edmonton. I was very surprised that on both our visits it was not very busy. The bar that it attached directly to the west was full. I don't know if Edmonton is ready for a for such a quality wine bar - it appears that we are just looking for the cheapest draft beer and pool tables. Kind of sad. I really hope the Wine Room stays alive as it is a trendy complement to downtown.

    This place reminded me of restaurants in Florence. They did a great job decorating using a 'wine barrel' concept for ceilings and booths. It turned out really well. The food was excellent, we started with a charcuterie board (which can be varied according to taste) and finished with classic mussels. The per ounce pricing lets the diner taste a variety of wines. We really enjoyed it.

    We met some friends for a casual visit and it was a perfect spot! Awesome ambience! Great staff for service (knowledgable about wine recommendations - especially when enjoying the "flight" of wine choices). Noise level perfect (lively for Friday but enough to enjoy a conversation)! Tapas food great! Only constructive feedback would be to offer even a small selection of beer for non-wine drinkers.

    750 characters isn't enough to give a good review. Overall my time there was enjoyable. Service was mediocre as it seemed our server not only seemed awkward by our table but somewhat inattentive and dismissive. The owner however was right on top of that when she brought out a charcuterie that was nothing short of a classic piece of art that came with a presentation fit for any foodie! Also bathrooms are usually never a topic of discussion unless you have something terrible to say, here would be quite the contrary. Bathrooms so impeccably clean and beautiful it actually added to the entire experience. I will be coming back there is no doubt about that.

    ReviewManVIP
    Dined on 5/20/2014
    The cheese plate was fantastic but I didn't like the California wines and feel that the selection just wasn't up to the cheese plate. Cavern in downtown Edmonton had better wines which were mainly old world styles with more flavour, though their cheese plates weren't as magnificent. The ambiance is incredible but you have to look left when you enter the 1905 bar to find it.

    I want to tell everyone it was horrible so it never gets to busy. But I cant. This place is fantastic for a chilled out wine night. The small plates were excellent and the choices of charcuterie and cheeses fantastic. The wine list was very extensive and varied in expense for thos who might want to shell out more or less for their vino. Wine by the glass is priced and sold by the oz. This is great as it gives you the chance to try something you may not have otherwise. There is a large "by the glass" menu to create your own wine flights from, or have any size glass of once you find a favorite. The staff was very good. They were very knowledgeable on the wines and weren't constantly hovering over your table, allowing an excellent evening.
