    We had a wine flight, a cheese plate, and a few small plates. The cheese plate was the best! For a great price, you get 3 cheeses with spiced pecans, fruit jam, and grapes with crackers and crostinis (4.5/5). Such a great deal! Of the small plates: Spicy Shrimp - 4 shrimp over polenta cake surrounded by bacon/pork - 3.5/5 Pork Belly Corndogs - 3 corndogs served with a jar of a remoulade-type sauce to dip in - 3/5 Crab Cakes - 2 smaller crab cakes over greens and remoulade, pretty tasty - 3.5/5 Service was awesome 5/5!

    Everything about dining at this restaurant on a gorgeous Saturday night was right. They open the front of the restaurant facing the outdoor seating and we sat in the doorway, so we were able to experience both the inside of the restaurant and outdoor dining. The server was attentive and very professional. We loved the spinach salad! The burger and fries were perfect. The shrimp crepes weren't what I was expecting but light and tasty. I think this will be our new " go-to" restaurant. It reminds us of many restaurants in Manhattan. So when we are craving a NYC restaurant we will go to Vino Nadoz!

    Every time my wife and I go back to Vino Nadoz we always ask each other "why don't we come here more often?" Vino Nadoz features a short menu of small plates with consistently high quality food in a relaxed setting. The menu changes fairly frequently and features a lot of seasonal ingredients.

    Two friends and I went to Vino Nadoz while attending a conference in St. Louis. We loved it. We ordered a number of the smaller plates, including the succulent and delicious chicken wings, the delectable cheese plate, one of the flatbreads and several other yummy items. The specialty drinks were fun, especially the Ginja Ninja. We also enjoyed a flight of pinot noirs, which were just terrific with the cheeses. Very comfortable room, small place, very cordial service, terrific experience.

    Love this place. Very creative cocktails . . . and I'm usually a wine only person. We've gone back a few weeks in a row in order to experience each of the cocktails on the list. Wine list is very selective . . . not a lot of options, but everything on it is quality. Food is FUN!!! Interesting mix of flavors and textures. Creative pairings of main course with their sides. I find I only ate from the menu my first time . . . now I just look at the big blackboard specials for the interesting appetizers and entrees. Only area of opportunity that I see is help for outside dining from the mosquito's. I'm not sure if your allowed to spray but it sure would be helpful. After a nice leisurely dinner I went home all bitten up . . .

    Chef DiMercurio always surprises and delights, for example the pieces of pickled peach adorning the arugala salad and the amazingly cold-smoked cherry tomatoes with the perfect sea scallops atop a mysteriously delicious sauce. Knowledgeable service, too. Wish Vino Nadoz were open on Monday evenings, but that's asking too much.

    Had an 8:00 weekend dinner, first time there. First hint of trouble was no waiter for quite a while (repeated apologies from the hostess). Appetizers were plunked down before we were given any plates, leading us to stare at our cooling food for several minutes. Main dishes arrived but two of us had no forks. We eventually swiped some from an empty table. Coffee plunked down with no regard to who had caf and who had decaf (clearly, none of it was decaf) but no cream, sugar, or spoons. Coffee was cold by the time we rounded up some cream (had to get up to find the waiter for that one). No water refills until 5 min before we were ready to leave. Port arrived well after dessert. Food was terrific, but they gave us no reason to go back. Pity.

    DO you ever wonder how some people get in their position? Well...Mike the Manager is a recent example of just that question. Rude-rigid-ready to rumble....are the words that would describe his behavior and demeanor when I called him to our table to question a discrepancy on our bill. Up until that moment--overall experience was good. He kissed the words "great experience" out the door based on how he handled himself in our conversation. He TOTALLY missed any training or classes on CUSTOMER SERVICE. He did not listen and was simply ready to do battle. WOW. We won't be back.

    Dined on 2/28/2013
    We dined on a February week night which likely accounted for the small number of other diners and contributed to our quiet plesant experience. The emphasis was simply the food. Two of us chose the ravioli special and our third diner chose the short ribs. We each also selected an appetiser and shared and all were excellent. We shared a bottle of Califorian C&B cabernet in large wine glasses suited to reds, not something all restaurants provide, but this is a wine bar afterall. We will return.

    We had a wonderful experience at Vino Nadoz. It was our anniversary and we wanted a quiet cozy space and their setting was perfect. My cocktail was fabulous...with whiskey, countreau and a lemon-thyme simple syrup with a sturdy sprig of thyme. Not too sweet, refreshing and warmingly rich at the same time. The brushetta appetizer was spectacular - my favorite food of the night with a variety of mushrooms, carmelized onions and goat cheese. The bartender was very knowledgable and helped me choose a great wine (after some sampling - which was very nice of him) that paired wonderfully with my main dish of scallops. Delicious! I would go back to Vino Nadoz and would highly recommend it. Love the local farm-to-table the

    The food was perhaps a little pricey, but was worth every penny! Our waitress was fabulous: very friendly and knowledgeable about wines. I could see this as more of a "special occasion" place to go. It was a little smaller than I expected, so would think reservations would be in order for a weekend visit.

Not sure what I liked better: The IBC root beer reduction short ribs or the seared scallops As for the wines, I don't remember, we tasted too many.

    Overall, we had a grade B or B minus experience. Nothing really wrong, but not great. The restaurant has blonde furniture and is comparatively brightly lit, so not cozy. The bruschetta is good, but the menu is limited to 6-7 entrees and the same number of salads, so you have to be in the mood for what they have. We should probably give this place another chance.

    Read the reviews and decided to bring my wife here. The restsurant itself is very sleek and well designed. We were sat next to the huge chalk board that had all the specials written on it. Cool thing about it was the addition of the farms they source their produce and such from. The wine list is well thought out and you can take bottles home at reduced prices. The food is what brought it home. Not sure what the negative reviews are about because we had an amazing experience!

    We thought the pricing was uneven and inexplicable: 1 cup of pasta w/ 3-4 cherry tomatoes cost $14 whereas a bowl of chicken livers was $6? A pear salad had literally 4 thinly sliced pears and that cost $8. We had two glasses of wine, one pasta, one pork chop, 2 salads and the bill came to $90 w/ tip. Server had a hard time explaining some ingredients to dishes. The STL magazine reviewer was surprised Vino Nadoz was 'not packed to the rafters nightly.' We were not.

    Vino Nadoz is a little gem that features a nice (albeit small) menu and an excellent wine selection. Our server was personable, knowledgeable and friendly without being intrusive, and the food was very good (especially the evening's pasta special). The only bummer was the lack of energy. For a Friday night, it was quite slow. On the plus side, that meant we had no wait, got a great table and were well attended to...the overall vibe was just a bit flat.

    Normally one of our favorites, we had a disappointing outing. The squash soup had potential, but was served luke warm at best. The meals were uninspiring. The service was inattentive and we had to constant get the attention of our waiter. May have been a new chef or just a bad Saturday night. We've had at least 3 or 4 fantastic experiences prior.
