    I had a wonderful experience at Era. The ambiance is upbeat & smart. Katon’s customer centric service was top knotch and brotherly. The French toast was heavenly. I highly recommend Era- bring friends and settle in for a good time. Good Grape, good food, & good service is good for the soul!

    They went all out for New Year's Eve and it was phenomenal! The food was fantastic and the wine pairings on point. The complimentary bubbles were icing on the cake, and we purchased an amazing bottle of Champagne to go with everything as well. Era is a must visit!

    As always, this restaurant offers guests the finest selection of food, wine, and cocktails. Our party of three shared 4-5 items and there was plenty for everyone! The wine enthusiast (Shannon) was extremely attentive. She provided excellent guidance regarding the food as well as the wine list. Then, made certain everything arrived at the table as requested. A wonderful and elegant dining experience!

    I like going on Wednesday there's usually a couple of chairs open. The food is complimentary to the fabulous assortment of wines. The location is perfect to avoid traffic going home. It's never too loud...it's an intimate setting for a date or just to make new friends. The wines are amazing...Katy or Mel the on site wine matrons are very knowledgeable of the assortment of wines. It's definitely my favorite place to frequent in the DMV. Smitty

    I had previously recently eaten at Era Wine Bar and had a wonderful meal and experience. The Spanish chickpea dish was delicious. I was disappointed, however with my most recent dining experience on this past Friday, 9/15 during which I had the Salata Aribya. There was very little chicken in the salad. Fortunately, on both occasions, I had excellent service by the same young man. Despite the disappointing food, I would return and try a couple of the other menu items.

    It's a cute venue that I really wanted to like. Food was okay, nothing amazing. It took a while to come out and one plate came out way ahead of the rest of the meal even before the charcuterie board, which you'd think would be quick to put together. Might be because kitchen is tiny. So they have free tampons and wine stain remover in the bathroom (plus+), but charge for refills on coffee (big minus-).

    My mother and I went to Era Wine for brunch. It was her birthday, so the occasion was special. We ordered the following dishes: French Toast, Eggs and steak, Shrimp and Grits Bellini I asked for medium well steak, but I received a well done steak. The grits were overcooked. The Bellini was good, but not worth $13 for the amount given. The wait time to receive food was a little long too. It was average at best. There was only one server and he was very friendly.

    Had a lovely time here on a solo dinner. The food was great. The ambiance was beautiful and loved that it was pretty quiet; a very intimate setting. Mariah was my server me and she was sweet, patient, and attentive. She also recommended a really good sweet red when I couldn’t figure out what I wanted. I’ll definitely be back for a girls night.

    My wife and I went there on Valentine’s day. Didn’t order from the special menu of the day, since it seemed way overpriced. Ordered from the regular menu. The food was uninspiring. The choices were limited. Given the location, the quality of the food, and the service, we felt that the restaurant doesn’t provide adequate value.

    My girlfriend and I wanted to eat Era Wine Bar because it was local and they are participating in restaurant week. The server was very knowledgeable and courteous. We were placed by the bar which was lively when we enjoyed our meal but it wasn’t too loud. The food was prepared to our exact specifications and it was so tasty. The wine we had with our meal was a perfect temperature and very good as well. This being our second time here, it is solidified as one of our go-to places to enjoy a meal.

    The fries were quite “reheated” for 9 dollar fries. Also quite a small portion. The pricing and portions do make one feel “squeezed.” I enjoyed my wine, at least.
    Era Wine BarResponded on January 19, 2023
    Hi Jimmy, Thank you so much for visiting Era, and for providing this feedback! We're sorry that we didn't meet your expectations during your visit. All french fries are cooked fresh to order. We do understand that you were offered another fresh order and might have changed your mind. We are a small plate wine bar, but there are larger entree options on the menu in addition to the fries. We hope you will visit us again in future for another bite or drink so we can make it up to you!

    This is my second visit to Era Wine Bar and it was lovely. This time we ate inside rather than outside. It began as a quiet evening with not too many tables taken and then seemed to explode with customers while we were there. So good to see. The mussels were great as was the steak. We got excellent and kind help understanding and selecting our wines. A great evening out!
