Diner Reviews
  • "The wine selection is fun but don't come here hungry. It's not a lunch spot for sure. They have small/tiny expensive plates just as a little food to go with the wine."

  • "Great find in the Livermore wine country. It has a great atmosphere and the food was excellent. We loved sitting on the little love seats while sharing our small plates of food. Great lunch place as it is not that busy at that time."

  • "Noticed that the menu changed.Before the menu was geared for people to share and was more user friendly,now it's geared to the individual and not easily shared.Items are too exotic and require. Utensil use!"

  • "Toured Concannon Winery then had a wonderful lunch experience at Underdog, Outside seating featured couches for a relaxing leisure eating venue. Food was small plates, several to choose from all were well prepared and tasty. We were able to enjoy the view and watch several families playing games on the lawn while we ate---nice seeing parents and kids playing. Would definitely recommend it to friends."

  • "We are members of the winery but had never tried the wine bar. Tried it Saturday and we were very gad we did. The service was great. We just had three types of cheese with warm bread and Rosmary Almonds, It was a great way to relax and start off our Saturday afternoon."

  • "Made reservations but didn't need them. Root vegetables on endive leaves for an appetizer. Excellent , much better than it sounded. Next up duck sausage for me followed by the meat loaf. Excellent! Wife had lentils soup and the pulled pork, since we shared I know these were very good also. Dishes came a little too fast but that's better than too slow. Also had glass of wine, diet coke and an ice tea. $71 without tip. I'll go back."

  • "We tasted wine in the Concannon tasting room and followed up with dinner at the Underdog Wine Bar. The experience at Underdog Wine Bar was enjoyed by every one in our party. Voni provided us with excellent service to compliment the food. We will definitely go back to Underdog Wine Bar."

  • "Went to Underdog early on a Tuesday night, so was not crowded (we were the first to sit at 5:30). Food was great -- had the shredded BBQ pork, and shared the big cheese plate. Both were yummy. Great service and help picking out wine, which worked out well for all 3 of us. I had the bubbly flight -- recommend if you like sparkling wine/champagne."

  • "We travel quite a distance to dine at Underdog and it is always worth it! Great ambience - we love to sit outside in the comfy, welcoming patio. We enjoy the menu - big fans of the small plates concept - allows us to experience a variety of tastes. Especially liked the flatbread and the desserts. Actually we wanted to order every item on the menu! The wine pairings are on target and we also liked the flights. Heaters and blankets combat any chill in the air. Always friendly and accommodating staff with great service. A Northern California favorite - and a great place to take friends and family who are visiting. Food and service you can count on!"

  • "Good experience. No issues with using Open Table. Overall enjoyed food but thought very overpriced. Also seating at round center settee very uncomfortable. Would be hesitant to return because of cost of food , but enjoyed wine flight."

  • "Turkey meatballs were very dry, little flavor. Baked apple crumble was missing the crumble, and the apple was not sufficiently baked."

  • "Underdog is a well situated gem in the Livermore valley. nestled within a beautiful winery, this place had space for days! The views were open and yet intimate backing up to the grape vines bursting in autumnal tones. We had a very plush table on the patio next to a one-man band that totally set the tone for the evening. Our waitress was attentive and suggestive to our party of 6 and we really enjoyed the cheese platter, which was assembled by our waitress' picks. So, whether you are just looking for a glass of wine and a nosh before you move on to your next destination, or you want to catch up with old friends and get cozy with a bottle of wine and artisan tapas, Underdog is a great place to explore. Thanks!"
