Fantastic staff. Good selection of wines. Sitting by the fire pits is the only way to go on a chilly day.

Terrible experience. We arrived just on time for our reservation. The place looked overbooked and the staff overwhelmed. They ignored us completely for about 25 mins. I finally had to approach them and we were able to sit down. They ignored us for another 25 mins. So almost 1 hour in, I had to approach them again and they finally served us wine. Next thing you know - they ran out of one thing on the menu we wanted. Really disappointing and unacceptable customer service.

This is our new favorite neighborhood spot! We felt very safe dining outside both times that we have been here in the past few weeks. The happy hour deals are amazing, and everything we have tried on the menu is fantastic (cheese board, chips & guac, artichoke dip). The full-priced cheese board is even an amazing price - the cuts of cheese are so large, I don't even think I could make it at home for the same price! We love the happy hour rose (only $6/glass!)

Staff was a little slow both times but is very friendly. This place gets really busy during happy hour, so I'm understanding. Will definitely continue to go back :) The perfect spot to start or end your evening in quaint downtown Larkspur.

We went for a wine tasting for a friend's birthday on a Saturday evening. The interior of the bar is beautiful, the outside is cozy and there was a table reserved for us when we arrived. We had a charcuterie platter and tasting flights. Our server was so nice and patient and took the time to answer our many questions. Our group of five really enjoyed the experience and would love to go back.
