The one thing that was bad was they forgot my food. I sat around while the other parties at my table who ordered after me had received theirs. They guy said he would check on it. He came back to the table at least 2 more times before I ever got it... and it was only a salad!!! They never once offered anyway to make it right. Pretty disappointing.

GenuWine is a fun place for a night out to hear live music. The setting is very intimate. Food and appetizers are good and could improve with expanded offerings, but food choice and service may suffer a little because of the limited size kitchen this restaurant has. Servers work hard and do a good job considering the limited kitchen size.

Genuwine always delivers. Great off the path wines to enjoy while listening to live music and eating their delicious drunken goat salad and flatbreads. Don't miss out on their Ruben sandwich one of the best you can get around here.

We were there for the jazz, but found a gem in the process. Amber was very helpful with her knowledge of the wines, one you won’t find in the shops. The food was good and the staff friendly and helpful.

I love this place - one of my favorites! I'm so sorry but the music was awful! I brought a new friend from out of town who is a musician and was sad. All other times I've been there the music has been great. He definitely didn't go with "a wine bar"....

A very enjoyable evening with friends, live music, good food and we always find a great bottle of wine to drink from their selection. The drunken goat salad is delicious, their flatbreads and Reuben sandwiches are the best!.

The only comment would be concerning the serving of the second round of drinks. My husband had a beer and the second round was brought to the table in the can and poured into his glass. Kinda ruins the “specialness” of the beer.

Pretty minor, I know.

Overall, a great find!!!

One server- who doesn't write anything down and is totally overwhelmed. We went at 5:30 with 6 people and told her we had to get to a movie. Super slow on the food and my entree (a salad) was never entered in so it never arrived. Sad- we used to love this place but to see the owners just chatting and not really helping when there was another really big table is inexcusable. You need more help.

We love this place! The staff is a very knowledgeable crew on the wines and are very attentive. The menu is just right with many items that compliment the wine or beer that you choose. And, it is definitely one of the premier live music venues in The Woodlands area.

First time here. Took my date to hear Dan Crump play guitar and sing. What a gem - the place is comfortable and the wine is excellent. Lots of choices and our waiter made good recommendations. We ordered the stuffed mushrooms and the the margarita flat bread pizza - I highly recommend!! Dan played and talked and we all had a good time. The owners stopped by to check on us. I highly recommend!!!

It was a very nice night out. The atmosphere was relaxed and nice. Service was good. I liked the Sangria Special and the Cheese plate was a little scant, but good. The mushrooms were delicious.
It would be nice to have a dance floor area when there is live music. Very enjoyable night.

A very refined wine bar with good value wine and well prepared accompaniments. The cheese plate with good quality brie, nice blue and interesting drunken goat accompanied with fruit arugula was perfect. We topped off with a wedge salad. Half priced bottles were special

It's always a great time at Genuwine. Wonderful service and live music. I love the small intimate setting that basically turns into a party by the nights end...everyone dancing with everyone and chatting up. The owners are always there and that speaks volumes. They are very personable and approachable.
