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.

This was our 2nd visit to GenuWine. The 1st visit was outstanding. The 2nd was dismal. The 1st visit was packed, but service was good and pleasant. The 2nd visit was not packed, but same staffing level, but hte service totally sucked. Drinks were slow, food took forever. We are not sure if we will be back. There are places we go that are consistent in service.

We came here to check it out with minimal expectations. From the greeting to the exit GenuWine exceeded any and all expectations. The service was outstanding, the food was outstanding and the music was good as well as not too loud so we could converse without yelling.

We will be regulars there now.

This is a cute little place! The food was good, a little overpriced, but good and perfect with wine. The wine list is a little small for a wine bar, but the wines we did have were good. The band was great, however, a little loud. We were the table right in front of the stage so it was a little hard to talk. We ended up having a party of 8 instead of 4 last minute and they were able to accommodate us, which was great! We will definitely be back!

Fabulous food excellent venue for the acoustic singer. Owners came out and greeted everyone. Our waiter Chris was attentive just enough to not be a disturbance. Wine selections were unique. We had the Cabernet Franc from Chile. Smooth dry red with a hint of spice.
