First time to new location. It was nice but not as quaint as old location. Happy hour 2 appetizers + 4 drinks ~$60. Food was tasty.

We were there for a special event (Mother's Day Brunch) and I know that they are new, but we unfortunately experienced the same very slow service that we did when its predecessor (Coabana) opened. Seemed like they were very understaffed.

Mother’s Day brunch, waited a long time for the food and some menu items were not available. The staff was open and honest that they were trying a brunch for the first time and still had some kinks to work out. The location and patio are amazing so we would like to try again for dinner.

Unfortunately the service was horrendous. After 15 mins our server finally asked if we wanted a beverage. Also, we placed our order and one hour later they told us that they were out of an item. I really want this place to do well but they need to fix their service levels fast or it will be another failure at this location.

Was supposed to be a birthday celebration. We sat for 15 minutes before anybody even decided to wait on us.
Next we ask specific questions regarding the cheese plate as there was food allergy concerns we were told we would get three different chefs boards minus blue cheese. All three came with blue cheese when we brought it to their attention they brought us back one with goat cheese on it which was another concern.
Next we ordered to flatbreads after another 17 minutes waiting they told us they forgot to put them in.
When I asked if they would be taken off the bill the waiter rudely responded I'll buy her a drink.

We had been there so many times in the old location and not sure whether the big location is too much to handle or just bad service but don't know that we will be back :-(

Wow, the gluten free pizza-not the cardboard crust, rather, soft, chewy, a good crunch ratio. So. Damn. Good. While a tad slow the service is friendly, food came out relatively quickly, and the atmosphere is fun and lively. Just wish this small town didn’t go to bed so early-we could’ve easily stayed another hour.

We absolutely love this place! The service is amazing. We are always greeted and welcomed in like old friends. They put TLC into creating your food and cocktails. The owner is very in tune with the customers and staff, which makes for a great experience. I highly reccomend Por wine house and its staff for any and all occasions. Oh, and they also have a venue for private events! I cannot say enough great things about this place. You just have to come and check it out for yourself! Cheers!

Our waiter was horrible and rude. He never checked in on us, he made sarcastic comments, and handed us the computer at the end with no directions. The new place is beautiful, the wine and food is great, but the service is awful. If they could hire good servers it would be perfect.

Very strange - went on the last night before moving locations and it was not great. Had reservations far in advance, but we were sat in the tasting room which didn’t have tables to eat on. We asked to move and the only other table was located in a room without heat. We froze all dinner long. The service was slow; it took a while to order and then one meal was forgotten. On the bright side - the food was tasty.

Our Valentine’s Day celebration with the three-course pre-planned meal and wine pairing was our first experience here. The wines all went nicely and it was fun to compare their taste with and without the food.

The food was delicious and if I want to be really picky I would note that the corn crab jalapeño chowder and braised short ribs, although also delicious, could have been warmer. The beet salad was excellent and the ahi tuna and kale were delicious as well with a beautiful presentation.

We will look forward to going back.

A cozy and romantic atmosphere with a wonderful menu. The arugula salad was delicious, bacon wrapped dates were amazing, and the cheese and meat board was good. Unfortunately the night we went the service was pretty slow and we ordered a mulled wine that never came and finally the manager came over to say that “it wasn’t prepared” which meant they didn’t have it. We ordered a bruschetta that took more than 20 minutes to arrive and then it was burnt. Our overall experience was positive though.

Mary was our server & she was great! We enjoyed the music, too! The cheese plate, which I always order, was very tasty, but the amount of cheese is less than it used to be. Much smaller pieces, and less baguette, as well.

Great little spot for tapas and libations. Enjoyed the mulled wine on a cold evening while chatting with friends and munching on some tasty food. Live music was good, but being such an intimate venue it ratcheted up the volume of the place a little and made speaking a bit more like shouting to compete with the speakers. Still good and would recommend!

Everything was fantastic, the only issue being how incredibly cold it was inside and the doors being open constantly. They had a space heater near our table, but because of the open doors and thin walls, we had to wear our winter coats while eating.

GREAT place when the weather is nice outside!!

Came in excited to get mulled wine. Got our table right away but sat around for OVER 10 minutes before a server came by to take our drink order! No apology, no acknowledgment of the oversight. Our server even walked away before we could tell them our food order.

I have been to Por many times. I don't think I will be back. Terrible service, and we ordered a $30 chef's board (charcuterie), and I swear to you, I am not making this up—it had BOLOGNA on it. I have ordered this board half a dozen times, easily. It has never had bologna on it. The board was pitiful, the portion had diminished from previous purchases, and the server, while not busy, would be unseen for 15 minutes at a time. We were her only table.

You’ll find /Por/ tucked in an alley. Signs lead you relaxing patio dining. Excellent service. Interesting cocktails. Glasses and bootleg of wine. Had warm olives and found them spicy. Loved the ahi tuna nachos which came served like TexMex nachos on a huge platter. These were quite tasty.

Take cash, Visa or MC. The meal is worth every penny. They just don’t accept American Express.

Service was very slow. We were there/seated for an hour and a half and only had one round of wine and two small plates. We wanted to order more but time did not allow. The location was not very busy and appeared to be well staffed, just not urgent. The food was sub par as other reviewers stated. Would not pay full cost for the items (outside of happy hour). Hopefully they can turn some things around as the location and ambiance are wonderful!

Fun place and Johnny O provided some great music! Wine selection is great and prices are fair. My only criticism is the service was slow. Perhaps they were short on help that night and it was busy. I would recommend more help on anticipated busy nights. All said though we love the venue and will be back!

This was a perfect venue to meet up with an old friend. Our waitress (Mary) was wonderful and had a great sense of timing. She knew my friend and I had a lot to catch up on and she did not rush us at all. We both liked the atmosphere and the music was great. I liked that we could still have a conversation as the music played. Overall, this was a great experience. Thanks!

Really cute place. Could use some cleaning up, a little dirty and run down.
Service was VERY slow, so don’t be in a rush going here.
The food was a little strange. We had the tuna nachos they were huge and they got soggy very fast. The hummus platter was fine, nothing new or exciting here.
Drinks were good, but bartender was slow.
