Very friendly staff and great service. Nice house wines. It was a little loud in the tent once a few tables filled up.

Thoroughly enjoyed our time in the tent with good friends, good wine and good food from Top Burmese! Staff were very helpful and accommodating, I sure hope they continue to accommodate outside seating thru the winter. If so, we will be back 👍

Syndicate is one of our go-to spots in Beaverton. Love the live music on Friday and Saturday nights. Spectacular wine selection. Many great food options close by to enjoy with your wine and it’s fun that the Syndicate wine menu makes some food pairing suggestions for nearby restaurants.

I had a reservation for 6. Upon arrival they sat us at a table in the middle of the biggest tent. We were surrounded by other tables, it was pretty loud and hard to hear the music over the people. It was also hard to hear my tablemates when they were speaking. We hadn't ordered yet, so I asked one employee if we could move to another empty table, it was the same size table but in a smaller tent with only one other table beside it. The volume level was noticeably different over there and would've been much more enjoyable for our group. That employee said, "no sorry." I returned to our table and when the server arrived to take our order I asked him the same question, we haven't ordered yet, could we move our group to the other empty, same size table? He said, "I don't think so, that would be really hard to do." That table I asked for sat empty for over an hour. I understand other people may have had reservations (as did I), but they easily could have been put at our table as it was the same size. I think it would have been very easy to accommodated my simple request, and I'd be here writing a positive review. It is not uncommon in the service industry for a family to ask for a different table, and I've never experienced or witnessed a customers simple request like that being denied. I've also worked in restaurants, bars, and other service industry jobs so I have experience and I myself would have made an effort to provide better customer service.

Thank you for your feedback. In looking back at this night and our reservation system, I see that we had two Club Members request the tables that you wanted to be moved to. Our Club Members receive priority seating. This Club Member table arrived 45 mins after you not leaving you enough time to enjoy your meal had we moved you, per your request.

Great urban setting to grab a glass or bottle of great-tasting wine. Curated selection of varying wine types with custom flights made for a fun experience. Seating outside feels private under their awning setup and the live music never feels too loud. Syndicate does an amazing job showcasing all the food available within the two or three radius around - they encourage and give pairing advice to most restaurants nearby. Service is casual and knowledgeable, giving you space but answering any questions you might have.

Thanks for a good time, Syndicate.

We came in a Friday evening. They tacked on $5/person “cover charge” for the music when we sat down. It would have been nice to know about that in advance.

Syndicate Wine Bar
Responded on August 28, 2021

Thank you so much for this feedback. A notice about our $5 cover charge is listed in our company summary on OpenTable, as well as the Policy and Procedures. We also have 3 signs at the front door, and one on the music tent itself. This policy is also written on the back of every menu. We feel that the music that is provided on these nights more than makes up for the $5 charge. We understand if we are not the right fit for everyone.

I made reservations for 4 but our friends cancelled last minute. It was our first time here and we had walked by in the past and were very excited to sit in the adirondek chair bubbles! I called to let them know of the change from 4 to 2. When we arrived they tried to put us at a huge picnic table (for a 2 hour reservation of sipping wine and listening to music) not our idea of comfortable seating. I asked for chairs with backs and was moved to a back table. The table was fine - but located over an ant colony and I was crawlinging in ants most of my evening.
The musician - while talented and enjoyable enough was excessively loud. the table we were given apparently is one of the loudest - so my partner and I couldn't barely have a conversation while the music played. Not a very romantic date night. I mentioned these two issues to the server when we payed our check (after 1 hour and 15 mins) and the info was not greatly received - very nonchalant. I think the idea of this place is great - but there are some kinks that need to be worked out.

It was a nice set up, music and wine were good, staff was friendly. My only complaint is that I made a reservation for 6 people at 715pm.. When we arrived they said the reservation was only for 2 people so we had to wait a while for a table. Besides that, everything was good. I like that they let you bring in outside food. Give yourself extra time to find parking.

Another great evening at Syndicate! Great live music, Josh Makosky is an amazing guitar player and singer. Staff chosen and chilled white wines; a French white Burgundy blend and a German style dry Riesling. Both perfect for the heat and to go with the Top Burmese Curry Chicken and Rice dinner that was delivered to our table.

Fast, always friendly and expert service to go with the best outdoor experience you could hope for. Great job and congrats to the owners; Dave and Angella! Keep up the good work!

Extremely cute little wine shop that has adapted magnificently amidst the pandemic. They have a large covered tent outside that allows for lots of fresh air. We went on a Tuesday evening an hour before close and were expecting to be one of the only patrons there, but it was lively and fun! David, the owner, knew the wine menu inside and out and helped us choose a great bottle of bubbles to celebrate the evening. Highly recommended!
