The preset menu was for 2 course and it was 65.00 per person. I know it was Valentine's day but still would have preferred the rest of the menu

Our meals were delicious. Service was pleasant and attentive. It was quite noisy, making conversation difficult but over all a very good meal.

Love the sangria! Food is always solid...wish they still had the gnocchi! Always a great experience...plan on sitting and sipping awhile...they are not a place to go if your in a rush but that is part of the wine bar experience!

Of the four of us who went to dinner, one said their food was good. That was the French onion soup. Everything else was just ok, not awful but not good. We tried the bruschetta, the crab and cheese dip, the escargot, the Fish special, the fingerling potatoes (VERY heavy on the garlic). The service was very good. It was so loud in there we couldn't hear each other at all. The good service doesn't make up for bad food relative to the price. I had eaten here before but now I know why I hadn't been back in three years, unfortunately.
