ConVino Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
Two couples met here as we all enjoy wine and heard that Con Vino had a nice wine selection. Not only is the wine selection wonderful so is the meats and cheese selection. We shared French Mussels and Greek Mussels for an appetizer (absolutely wonderful). For the main course I had the Filet Mignon and it was tasty and perfectly prepared! My wife had the hanger steak and she said it was wonderful BUT not as good as my filet mignon. Our friends had the lamb burger and fish and they were very happy with their meals. The portions are small for America but traditional for Europe and more than adequate. We enjoyed the service as well as the atmosphere and for a Saturday night the restaurant was not loud so it made it easy to enjoy great food and wine and to be able to talk with friends. I will absolutely come back, again and again...
We stopped by this restaurant on our way home from a trip and hope we can make it back here some day. We had the roast beef sandwich, butternut squash soup, and arugula salad. The food was truly excellent, even the bread that was served with the soup was great. I usually like butter on bread and this bread didn't need anything, excellent. The only thing that may put some off is you don't get the huge portions that most restaurants serve.
My husband and I really enjoyed our meal. Unfortunately, at seven o'clock on a Saturday you have to expect some noise if you're seated near the bar, and we had a large crowd of people standing next to us, enjoying their wine. Also our server must have been very busy, as she forgot some of our order, one of our cheeses came out wrong and she never checked in to apologise, she never asked if we wanted more drinks, and she dropped our check without asking if we wanted desert or coffee. That being said, she was very pleasant and we had a nice evening.
Overall quite nice, but my and my daughter's steaks were both exceedingly salty. We brought this to the waiter's attention but no remedies were offered at all. I would definitely send back if this ever were to happen again. I felt this represented a poor showing by the restaurant. But otherwise the ambiance and the other food was good.
We had eaten there the week before and he steaks were excellent that time, I should add. We just got a bad dinner this time.
I went to ConVino with a colleague and a visiting alumnus of the university where I teach. We enjoyed a couple glasses of wine and ordered some small plates and a cheese and charcuterie platter. Service was attentive without being intrusive, and the food was good (you can order small plates or a full meal). The wine list is the main attraction: carefully chosen, with a broad range of options by the glass as well as bottle. The folk musician playing live was talented and not too loud. It was a Monday evening, so things might be livelier on other days. I had a delightful time and will be back again.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at ConVivo Wine Bar. We sat at the bar where the bar tender took great care of us. He even indulged my request to try 3 reds before making my selection. They had a nice array of starters and we tried several of the Mediterranean spreads with warm Pita wedges and a generous dish of Marconi Almonds. My dining companion had a slice of Spanikopita while I had a few of their slightly too spicy lamb riblets. Food, pretty good, Ambiance better.
Our dining experience at ConVino could not have been more enjoyable or leisurely. The service was friendly and accommodating. The sommelier was extremely helpful in assisting us to choose a delicious wine for our meal. Definitely don't be afraid to ask for her help. We enjoyed a to-die-for cheese plate and two perfectly prepared filet mignons. The place has a relaxed but authentic French flair.
We were here late evening after battling the traffic of UMass Commencement and just LOVED it! The candlelit yet casual ambiance was perfect. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. Our group of 7 enjoyed sharing and savoring a few delicious (smallish) appetizers, then had our main dish. A wonderful evening!
Our waiter was very nice, and personable and they had a decent wine list. We enjoyed the appetizers although on the very small side. Everyone in our party ordered steak except for one who ordered the lamb burger. Across the board everyone's meal was heavily salted, they were nice cuts of meat, but almost to the point of being inedible. The place is very cute and cozy, I think possibly the chef or whoever prepared the steaks had way to much of a heavy hand.
It's a little pricy, and the cheese portions are rather small. That being said, all the food was delicious. My 2 friends and I shared a few starters, some cheese, and a few of their flatbreads. And we each had two glasses of wine. All together, the bill was about $150.
Tasty, recommended for a night out once in awhile, but a bit too expensive for a regular venue.
We had a nice assortment of plates for a very reasonable price, and managed to stay completely vegetarian. We particularly enjoyed the brussels sprouts salad and the special seared radicchio. Our waitress gave good wine recommendations, and the cheese plate was thoughtfully put together. A cozy and fun evening on a cold winter night!
