Ignore my stars I cant leave a review because it was closed when we arrived for our 5:45 PM dinner reservation. There is construction going on outside of the restaurant and they don't seem to have set hours anymore. We were doing an overnight trip and are not from the area and it was extremely frustrating to drive down there pay to park and walk to the restaurant only to find it closed not sure why opentable let me make a reservation when it seems like they have been operating at reduced hours for a while.

The food was fantastic! My husband and i shared 5 different tapas items and they were all so delicious! Seriously the best deviled eggs I've ever eaten. The night we went, a lical band called tout sweet jazz ensemble was playing which made the ambiance amazing

Happened to go on a first Thursday so were treated to jazz and poetry reading while we dined. Ordered nine tapas all excellent with the possible exception of the spinach which had too many onions for the palates of those in our group. Highly recommended.

Never again will my palate nor my credit card participate in this venue. I was very disappointed with the food. I felt that the ambiance was that of a garage with a make shift restaurant thrown in. We understand it is a wine and hors d'oeuvre bar. But the food was lacking. I felt as if it were prepared by students at high school home economics class. It was recommended to us by the internet. We booked a reservation; assuming that it would be packed. Which was the complete opposite.

Staff was very tentative, BUT THATS IT.. The menu and the food needs to be readjusted if the owners wish to stay in business. We had no problem ordering multiple plates from the menu. BUT after tasting of the first two plates. We opted not too. meat balls, deviled eggs and bread.

We left and walked down the street to grab a slice of pizza.

Good wine selection, with great recommendations. Food was delicious. Atmosphere quiet during dinner then more fun later in the evening with dancing.

We were there on a Friday night when C'est le Vin had live music. Luckily we had early reservations and were able to put a wall between us and the band. It was very loud and since we were there for good food and good conversation with our friends, the "good conversation" piece would have suffered otherwise.

The tapas menu was varied enough for the 4 of us and the half/full plates made it possible to meet everyone's preferences. Our waiter recommended a wine and we ended up ordering a second bottle. Great choice for the price. The food was good, nothing spectacular, but tasty and satisfying.

We enjoyed several of the tapas selections, very reasonably sized AND priced. The live music was enjoyable - tasteful while it enhanced the experience without overwhelming. Service was good. Felt a bit like Goldilocks, as everything was "just right"!
