    Lovely neighborhood spot with a small but focused menu and a well-chosen wine list, many available by the glass, starting with 3 oz pours, which encourages experimentation.

    Went for brunch on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, so everyone sat outside. Dining room was empty. But inside was brand new and lovely. Brunch menu was pretty standard, but food was good. Host (owner?) was very nice. Helpful and attentive, but not obtrusive. Seems like it would be a really cool vibe in evening. I definitely plan to go back for dinner or happy hour.

    First time patronizing Era and it didn’t disappoint. They had wide selection of rare international wines and offered 3,6 and 9 oz tastings. The food was amazing and our server Nicole was fabulous! The decor inside was chic and they also have outdoor seating with umbrellas for shade. We will definitely come back soon!!

    This was our second trip to ERA Wine; our first one was for brunch on the weekend, which was very good. We wanted to try the dinner service; if you are not a fish person, there were limited choices. One a huge ribeye, the other a burger. My partner got the burger, which was a little overdone and could have used some seasoning. I tried the pesto pasta dish with shrimp; the shrimp were well seasoned and cooked just right; the pesto sauce could have used some seasoning. We did the service and our server was very well versed in the wine and food, though she did allow that our two entrees were the two she had not tasted yet. we will give it another try, as we enjoy the neighborhood and the atmosphere.

    This is going to be one of the crown jewels of Prince Georges County. The food, the wine, and the environment was perfect. My husband and I went there for the first time yesterday night and as business owners every expectation was met. The staff was friendly, but still exercised the highest level of dining hospitality. It's a down to earth vibe but you can still come dressed up. The menu has a Mediterranean feel about it being the owners are from Zambia. Try the dates!!!! I have never had dates until I ate theirs. And they also have a South African wine list selection. Highly recommend.

    1st time at Era. We will return. The ambiance was perfect for us; quiet despite a full house. Lovely wine selection but seemed overweighted with expensive options. We choose a French bottle which was delicious. The samosas were delicious. We had a lovely wait staff who was very pleasant but a tad overwhelmed. It is a family run operation which we liked a lot. Overall a very nice evening

    Had brunch this past Sunday. Arrived promptly for 12 noon reservation. We were taken to our table, but they appeared to still be setting up. Ordered shrimp and grits which was quite tasty, but the mimosa was blah. All of the wait staff was very friendly, though there was a time we needed salt and our waiter was no where to be found. The restaurant is very pretty and intimate. I would return.

    Wonderful food and drink. But pretty sure my sister and I were a product of age and color discrimination because we looked younger. Not to mention my sister looks very young and they didn't even card her. We made a reservation for 8pm. We walked in and stood at the door for a solid five minuets before being greeted. Not to mention three waitresses passed us up. Finally someone sat us down but they didn't clean our table properly. They just cleaned it with a rag. *this is of note because afterwards we saw them clean plenty of tables with spray and a cloth. After ordering the food and drinks came out very fast. But as we sat by the door, we noticed that as soon as other guests came in they were greeted promptly. Especially if the guests were non black. Which is sad because I wanted to support this establishment knowing they were black owned. We never received water nor napkins until our meal was done. Our server would spend a significant amount of time away from us also. What really put the nail in the coffin was when it came time to pay. Our waiter literally stood over me to watch me pay as if I was going to run out on the check. Weirdest moment ever. Will never go back despite how good the food and wine was. Not to mention all staff consistently bent over backwards to appease other races....such a slap in the face. Would've gladly tipped accordingly but whole night was trash.

    Celebrated Valentine’s Day…on February 15th LOL. Delicious food. Wine pairing suggestions from our server Bruce were perfect. One suggestion: get an espresso maker for people who want/need a caffeine jolt after enjoying wine. We love supporting great businesses in Prince George’s county! Will definitely return.
