Sable Gate Winery
This is a true wine bar. Szilvia provided a great experience. We purchased a bottle of Pink, if you like sweet I highly recommend it. Another friend did the flight and the knowledge & expertise of Szilvia was fabulous.
What a wonderful place! The owner was very attentive and paired wonderful wines with amazing food recommendations! Great place!
Very bad experience. Wine tasted like juice, had to leave more than half of the bottle. The people beside us also left their glasses half full. The charcuterie board was very disappointing. There were cheerios on top of the brie cheese. Also, the cheese was not well cut, the bread was very soft, the prosciutto was thick and rubbery.
Very welcoming atmosphere - I've been to two tastings now and enjoyed it a great deal. The owner/winemaker always takes time to explain the process and each wine. They have a great selection and a very affordable monthly membership. I look forward to my next visit.
Relaxing environment, a great place for wine tasting. Very in depth about the types of wines, they have to offer. Even bought a bottle to take home, that's how good it was. This spot will definitely be on our date night list.
Loved my trip there. Sylvia is the owner and very personable. She knows her stuff and is very friendly. I would go there again just for the experience. Food was delicious. Try the truffle fries. Worth every penny.
The owner visited with us and spent most of our visit with us giving us lots of information on the wines. Loved this place. Would recommend. 5 stars!
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening! We will be there again soon.
Great music selection and flight choices. I didn’t care for the fries. The server was very knowledgeable. Had a great time for my first visit in Houston.
Waitress was extremely rude to our bridal party. We had reservations weeks in advance. When I spoke to someone on the phone over my reservation I emphasized we were a bridal party wanting to do the “wine tasting.” The waitress did not want to serve us the tastings because there were too many “groups.” Her attitude towards us was unnecessary and very rude.
I wish we could say we loved this place, but unfortunately they fell short, very short of any expectation we had for a local winery. We always walk past The Sable Gate Winery, but have never went in, but based on the few positive reviews it had we decided to give it a try. I made a reservation. When you walk up to the establishment the outdoor seating is all put away and stacked- does not have a welcoming feel, makes you think they are closed. The outside electrical features are not finished, for example outlet hanging off, not properly installed.
When you walk in, there is no host stand or anyone to greet-hence reservation- where do you go for your reservation...? There was one server working, but she was not very knowledgeable about any of the wines, she was on her phone majority of the time, she took a few phone calls on her phone; which fine, maybe they don’t have a phone policy for their employees while taking care of customers, but we were trying the red wine tasting and kept waiting for her to realize our glasses were empty repeatedly so we could try the next wine. Also the food is not worth it, I promise. We ordered a “flat bread” which looked exactly like a French bread pizza and it did not taste any better then a frozen pizza from Randall’s. We also ordered a 7 item cheese/ meat board. The server knew some information on the meats and few cheeses, but once brought over she didn’t show which were which. Maybe we’re use to other wineries that are able to explain what is on the cheese/ meat board. The meats were okay, nothing fancy and the cheeses are not worth it. Believe me I love cheese! The inside area behind the wine bar is messy and the area to the left of the wine bar. The music kept cutting out- loud then soft then loud repeatedly; which was very unpleasant.
We really hope they are able flourish because they are in a great location and we love wine.
I hope this honest review helps you with your decision to try Sable Gate Winery.
Went on a Friday night, it wasn’t too busy so can’t attest to a busy night there. All the workers there were very friendly. I ordered a pizza and some wings, food was great and came out piping hot. Had a flight of red wine and a couple of glasses. Nice place for a relaxing evening.
Visiting from out of state and treated a friend for her 21st here and we fell in love! Hands down would go once a week if I didn’t live so far away. The owner is so knowledgeable and friendly.
Absolutely Fabulous!! So happy we decided to visit.
A great experience, Bob and Szilvia are amazing hosts. Great wine and food. I'll be back on the regular.
Our first time at Sable Gate was a great experience. We went there before a performance at the Match. They make their own wine with grapes that are purchased. We had a couple of wines and a cheese board. Both wines we tried were great. We will definitely return for more.
This was so fun. Owner was so nice. Great food. Loved the wine!
My sister and I had a wonderful time celebrating her birthday here.
Really. Wonderful. And a fun adventure in high quality wine tasting and learning.
Host was outstanding and friendly.
My wife and I came to The Sable Gate Winery with 2 other couples to have a wine tasting before going to dinner. The services was awesome. Our server was so knowledgeable about the different types of wine. Because we where not from the area he suggested places for us to go. The owner even came to our table to welcome us to her place. Next time we are in Houston we will differently visit Sable Gate Winery. Thank you for making our Anniversary even more special.
Second time stamping in with my wife. Excellent choices of wine and food. Had a lovely cheeseboard and a nice flat bread. This is truly a hidden gem in downtown Houston.
We ordered a 7 item cheese and meat board, a bacon flat bread pizza and a bottle of pinot noir. The food was delicious and the suggested wine was a nice pairing. All wines are made in house from grapes that are imported from around the world. FYI: During happy hour on Wednesdays, everything is 20% off. It is nice to have a winery in Midtown. We will definitely be back.
I must say this was my first time at a winery and I was impressed by Kate she was able to tell me about every wine and I enjoyed the Chef Scotty all the wines and small plate foods were to die for. My favorite wine was called Big Daddy it was a very beautiful red wine! I loved the owner very nice ,sweet lady!! I will be back soon.
great spot for wine/drinks with good food as well. the brunch is fantastic
Sable Gate Winey was amazing!! The owner Sylvia was great, her staff Kate & Katrina knowledgeable and so personable the chef Skye was great as well, the food was amazing. They just gained a regular.
The owner greeted me by name when we came in, showed us around, and spent extra time with us explaining the wines. When it came time for a light snack she let up pick our pairings according to what we learned and guided us to great pairings. My experience was so delightful, I am joining their wine club!
Great service, good wine and good selection of food. I will definitely return and tell friends,
Excited to see a winery in Midtown near our home.
