Everything about Era screams EXCELLENCE. From the food, to the ambiance to even the bathrooms! Lol, the wine was superb and our waitress, Angela was so knowledgeable and helped guide us to our favorite choices (Shiraz for the win!) the snacks we had were delicious (samosas were our favorite and the tamarind chutney OH EM GEE), entrees were to die for (loved the wings, shrimp AND THE STEAK WAS THE WINNER), and dessert (my friend loved the strawberry shortcake, and my absolute favorite was the sorbet steeped in Prosecco!) we ate the food so fast we took no pictures, sadly! But we’ve already started bragging about it to our friends and are SO READY to visit this amazing place and space again! Thank you Era Wine Bar for giving everything we hoped you’d give and MORE!
I really wanted to like this place but I cannot and would not recommend it.
Lovely wine menu and nice decor. Service was sorely lacking and the response from the manager/owner when we addressed our concerns ranged from dismissive to defensive and back to dismissive. What little food we ordered was just ok. The bread for the crostini was not grilled or toasted at all.
Overall, we felt as though we were inconveniencing the staff by being there and then down right unwelcome.
Bad service happens, but for that to follow with a poor response and no remedy from the OWNER is simply unacceptable.
If you’re looking for a good restaurant in that area, I highly recommend heading to Pennyroyal Station next door, where they value your presence, have a great menu, and offer a 5 star experience, start to finish.
Thank you for visiting Era! We apologize regarding the level of toast in your crostini. After reviewing service aspects, we unfortunately witnessed staff being bullied and intimidated by more than one guest at your table. We strive to provide an excellent experience for all customers, but this can’t always happen. We also don’t pit ourselves against other small businesses—this is not our style. We understand if you choose not to return, but will do our best to improve your experience if you do!
My 1st time and I overly enjoyed this wine bar. The food was delicious, the staff was personable/professional and the atmosphere was perfect. The best part is that it's black owned. I'll will definitely be back!
The staff seemed to lack training. I ordered a club soda with lime and was brought a club soda with bottled lime juice; the beverage was green. I wanted a twist of lime. The food was not remarkable and was not worth the cost. The cocktails and wine were average. Have potential but needs work.
Hello Chic413, Thank you for sharing this feedback with us! We apologize for the mishap with your drink order. We've shared your review with our team. Is there any specific feedback on a particular dish, wine, or other cocktail that you would like to share with us? We are continuously evolving and do strive to provide the best experience possible. We would appreciate the opportunity to welcome you again soon. Sincerely, Michelle & Ka-ton
Everything was amazing, from the service we received from Bruce, the wine, the food, just amazing.
The owners are exceptionally personable and their presence ensures food/service are consistently at the highest levels.
My group had a fabulous time! We will be back!
The food was really good and the service was very attentive. I'm really excited to have this addition to the neighborhood.
This is a fantastic addition to the DC area. The owners and staff were delightful and gave us great wine and cocktail recommendations. And the restaurant has a nice, modern yet peaceful vibe to it that’s very welcoming. I’ll be back with more friends!
Great wine selection, fantastic food, personable service. So glad they're here!
Arrived @1:35 to celebrate a friends birthday. We were seated at a lovely table by the window. We ordered 2 omelettes and 1 French toast & 1:50 pm.
Our food arrived @ 2:35 pm , the dining room was virtually empty only 4 tables aside from our table of 2. A young woman came an asked if there was anything else, gave us the check and sent us on our way. No cake, no candle no apology. Perhaps they treat their regular customers better or perhaps it was just post Covid service!
I’ll of course support again and hopefully next time will be better!
Finally made it to the new Era Wine bar last night. Loved the ambiance. Staff were friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. Wine was delish as were the Samosas.
Beautiful… fabulous service….great food…. Huge wine list and help to decide which one to try….local…..loved it
Everything here was really exceptional, from the greeting when I first walked in the door, to the service staff who truly knew and appreciated the offerings, and the food was really delicious. I will be coming again, many times!
The folks at Era know what they are doing, they are doing it well, and they do it while making you feel so very welcome!
What a great add to our local neighborhood. Brunch with my mom friends was fantastic! Great ambiance, food and wine choices. Welcome to the area. We're glad you're here.
We had a great girl’s night here and we enjoyed our server! The ambience is perfect for a date night or outing with friends. I sampled three reds that were all delicious and appreciated the smaller 3oz pour option. We ordered nearly everything on the menu because it was so tasty. Highly recommend the steak crostini, chick peas, samosas and Parmesan fries.
I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT ERA! The vibe, the ambiance, the service, the food, THE WINE🗣 Everyone needs to experience Era Wine Bar.
Brunch was delicious and the ambiance/decor are top notch. Wish our server was a bit more familiar with the wines. I’ll definitely be back.
Lots of interesting wines to choose from with food that pairs well.
Wonderful service and experience!
It's such a joy to have Era in Mount Rainier: the wine is fine, the food is too, and the service is on-point. It was also wonderful to meet the owners who are obviously quite dedicated to their business -- they provided a warm welcome and checked to see how we were enjoying our meal.
My partner and I initially walked over intending to have a glass of wine and an appetizer but ended up getting cocktails and wine and then stayed for dinner -- we were especially impressed by the food menu, which has some spicy twists and turns that make it not-your-typical wine bar fare. Our cocktails were inventive and absolutely worth the diversion from the well-curated wine list. Dessert was excellent as well.
It was the perfect way to wind (wine?) down from a crazy work week, and we're very much looking forward to coming back to this neighborhood spot again soon.
Always a pleasure—great wine, delicious food, and kind staff.
The food and wine were good, but no staff were wearing masks properly.
Eta wine bar is a cute spot for any occasion whether it’s catching up with friends or a date night. The food is amazing and they have an awesome selection of wine. Connor was well educated about the wine and super friendly. Definitely going back
Amazing new wine bar with amazing wife husband owners.
What a gem! The food was delicious and the wine was impeccable. Highly recommend!
The owners did a great job with the design of this new wine bar. Food was great, wine was great. Love the option to select 3, 6 or 9 ounce pours. Perfect date night spot. I will be back!
The food was amazing and the wine list included new wines that peaked my palate!! The owners are engaging and friendly. Looking forward to going back soon.
Wow! Just wow! Great food, wine, cocktails and service. Fabulous addition to the neighborhood
This spot is a gem—great wine, excellent service, and a food menu with some really good options. Highly recommend it for date night or just chilling on their patio with a great bottle and friends.
We loved our first visit the Era Wine Bar. We live in the neighborhood and have eagerly awaited the opening. We went during the first week of operation and overall we enjoyed it! The food is outstanding and they offer a nice variety of wines by the glass. We had to wait a while for our food to arrive but understandably they are still working out the kinks on service since it's only their first week. The owner and server were extremely friendly and welcoming. We'll definitely be back soon!
THIS IS A LOCAL TREASURE!
The atmosphere is phenomenal. It is both upscale and homey! The inviting decor and intimate seating really adds to the appeal. The owners are incredible and the hired an incredible staff! Our waiter was very knowledgeable of all the wine selections and picked/paired many of them with our food.
Go, you don't want to miss out!
Recommendations on wines were on point. Waiter was attentive. Loved the indoor atmosphere. Will visit again.
Food and wine both great, and the three ounce pours are a great way to sample the various wines. Samosas, crostini and "welcome dates" all wonderful, tho I'm puzzled why they'd always come in an odd number for a location that is so otherwise good for couples. Servers were very cool, if still learning the whole ordering system. Be patient, it's worth it. You may even get some free bubbly out of it...😉
This place has amazing wines and delicious food. Get the stuffed welcome dates!
So happy this place opened in the neighborhood! We will definitely be back to sample more wines.
Brunch was great. I'm so happy to have our new neighborhood gem, Era Wine Bar.
Always an awesome experience. Great food and delicious wines.
It’s amazing how much the owners have been able to do within such a short time of being open—the food includes some special family recipes, and the wine includes some fabulous selections. Make sure you ask about their wine memberships!
