    The food was absolutely fantastic! Best Veggie Burger I have ever eaten. I went with a friend, but I think it's a great place for a date night. Fantastic Wine selection and great overall vibe (beautifully urban and ecelctic).

    The wine was wonderful, as was our waiter. The food (we had appetizers) was good, but nothing really spectacular. Perfect location and a nice place for some appetizers and a drink with friends or a date. Would definitely return.

    Our waiter was great and knew everything about all the wine we asked him about on the menu. He also gave great recommendations. And the cheese plate was amazing!

    We went there for drinks and dessert to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and loved everything about it. The service was outstanding! The wine selection is expansive and has something for everyone. We highly recommend it!

    We have walked by this gem of a neighborhood bar and bistro several times without taking notice. I guess we were busy. This is a great place for a pre-theater drink or dinner. The portion sizes are quite adequate and while the menu has limited choices, there are several daily specials that broaden the options. We enjoyed the Dorado prepared in a curry broth and served very hot. The wait staff (Mark) was professional, friendly and acknowledged that we were headed to The Academy and needed to "dine on a schedule". The owner stopped by our table as we were preparing to leave. She was very friendly and invited us to return again. We will be taking our foodie son and his girlfriend for dinner real soon.

    A nice place for dinner and a variety of wines by the glass. We had a table by the open window on a beautiful evening. Fun to see folks walking by while eating delicious food and sipping wine. Thanks!

    My husband and I needed a convenient place to meet between the Academy of Music and Jefferson Hospital to meet for a quick bite before going to the Opera on a Friday night. We have a usual spot, but wanted to try something new. The Vintage Wine Bar was in the right spot with the perfect menu. The staff was very nice, the place was very busy and very noisy. I might add it was first Friday. My husband got there first so had a glass of wine and a starter before I arrived at the bar. We each had a glass of wine and ordered the lamb sliders. They were absolutely delicious. The cost was a little high for a wine bar (the wine is high, food reasonable). All in all, it served the purpose well.

    Food was pretty good, but nothing to write home about. Not a lot to choose from either. Wine was a little pricey per glass. if you're looking for a place to just stop by for a quick bite, this is more of a fine dining place.

    The limited menu was quite delicious, but not necessarily beyond what you might find elsewhere. However, the prices are reasonable, and the service is outstanding. No wine is poured without a taste given, and all of the servers and bartenders are educated and knowledgeable about both the wines and the food. Atmosphere is relaxed without feeling juvenile. Highly recommend.

    The food was too heavy, and the wine list was unimpressive. The service was very good.

    First, they didn't have 60 wine by glass. The wine list was nothing special, as was the food and service.
