Had another good experience here. Danielle was our server & took excellent care of us. This time I had the shrimp & grits plus shared the beet salad with my husband. They were very good.

We had an amazing New Years Eve dinner! Everything was spectacular from the service to the food and presentation. Our only request is more California Pinot Noirs. Well done chef!

We had a reservation and were seated immediately. Service was prompt and attentive without being intrusive. Food and beverages were excellent. We noted that when other diners departed, the staff made a special effort to sanitize their tables. A negative was that the restaurant was very noisy because diners spoke very loudly without regard for other patrons.

Went out with some friends for a long leisurely lunch at the Wine House. We had an appetizer of french fries and champagne. An awesome combo. Had the Wine House Salad with Salmon, which was delicious. My friend liked his Monti Cristo and another enjoyed the salad with flat iron steak. The wine selection is superb with something for every palate. The inventory turns over quickly and each time I go there I find something interesting to try and a reasonable price. The wines we had were delicious, the Pence Ranch Pinot Noir and the Fableist Zinfandal (206) made the meal. For dessert we had W&J Grahams 20 year old tawny port with a chocolate grenache. Awesome! The server, Teresa was also outstanding and we lingered most of the afternoon without feeling rushed to leave. Overall a great experience.

It was a cold evening and I was sitting next to the window, so a bit chilly. But the appetizers were good, entrees very good, wine too. All the displayed wine bottles, wood tables, floors, etc., made it welcoming.
Family in town so was great fun seeing what they enjoyed too. Kitchen and staff were busy but we were well attended to. We would definitely go back again and try other entrees.

Went on a Monday night and the place was packed. That will tell you something. The food is delicious, Monday is mussels night. I highly recommend the rack of lamb as well. But really it’s the wine selection that just goes over the top. Wines priced at all levels. The staff is very knowledgeable and very friendly. They really make it fun trying different wines

Been wanting to dine there for over 15 years and wondering why it took so long to do so. The mussels were outstanding as was the appetizer, the wine, the service, the ambience.

There were three of us on a Sunday night. We had reservations but we probably didn't need them. The food portions were a reasonable size, not to big or too small. It is probably a little more expensive than our usual choice of restaurants.
The music was a little loud for our tastes but not unreasonable for the age level of the majority of the people there (they were quite a bit younger than two of us).

The ambiance is nice and the wine selection is varied and reasonably priced. It is relatively small, so your server is never too far away and service is not an issue. The crab cake special had more filler than any other that I have had. Tasty, but not crab. Overall, food is good.
