Great outdoor seating.
My favorite place to go for wine and food. Great service and good people.
Our server Tyler was great. Friendly, quick, knowledgeable. It was a beautiful night, the food was perfectly done and creative, and we enjoyed that we were able to take home what little of the Bordeaux was left at the end of our meal. Ambiance only gets a 3/5 because our conversation was interrupted multiple times by outbursts from an intoxicated guest at another table. Otherwise it was pretty much perfect.
Wine Flight night is always fun and informative. The food and service are excellent as always!
We had to wait about 10 minutes past our reservation time for a table but that's not too bad for a Saturday night. Our server was excellent, knowledgeable and attentive. All our food was very good from starters to entree's to dessert.
As usual the food, wine and accommodations are excellent.
We were told that the kitchen was overwhelmed and our food would be late. But that was not an issue for me as I did not think they were late. The albarino wine seemed to have been opened a while back and was acidic.
The crostini that came with the gazpacho soup was burnt and I had to cut the burnt piece off with force and break other pieces and put it in the soup so that it would soften -- but the taste of what was on the crostini was gone. I think the crostini was made beforehand and when got to the table it was old and in poor condition and it was like a cardboard.
The filet mignon was ok, but lacked flavor. However, the quality of meat was good. The asparagus was good but a tiny bit overcooked.
The bread pudding would have been good, if the top part was not burnt.
There were limited wine selection by the glass for a place that calls itself Winehouse.
I like to think that this was a one off. But for the price they charge, it was not worth it and I could do better elsewhere.
It was a great place to meet up with friends. Staff were friendly and so helpful with wine selection and food was excellent.
This is an amazing restaurant where food and ambiance complement each other. Filet mignon was delicious, asparagus soup was to die for, and the fresh made warm banana pudding was paradise. The wine from their vast collection paired well with the food. The service was impeccable and fresh flowers on the table made us feel special. I’ll drive here from NJ next time just for this experience!
Dinah and her team made our anniversary dinner extra special. Great wine pairings and salmon filet was fantastic.
Such wonderful people! Fun (and educational) conversations about wine and impeccable service.
We really enjoyed our first dining experience. My husband didn’t love either of the two red wines he tried but my Sancerre was excellent. My asparagus soup appetizer was bland, my husband’s green salad was typical and good. My cod entree with couscous cooked in a Mediterranean style was delicious. My husband’s steak frites was very good - the steak was cooked a perfect medium rare. We will definitely be back.
This was our first visit to the restaurant. It has a very nice wine-bar atmosphere and the service was excellent. On the other hand, the food was uneven. The seared tuna appetizer was very good, as was the green salad. However, the portions on the cheese and charcuterie plate were tiny and the pate was mediocre. Similarly, our entrees were inconsistent. The cod was delicious, although the bed of couscous, vegetables, olives, capers, etc. was a bit of a jumbled mess. Finally, the shrimp and grits was not good at all. It tasted like everything had been pre-cooked, assembled and warmed. In spite of that, the grits were cold and gloppy. Moreover, the andouille tasted like sliced pepperoni and the sauce was uninspired. Finally, the steak frites was ok, but the cut of the steak was not the traditional cut one sees with the dish. In sum, for the price, the food should have been much better than it was.
Hi Steven, thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are disappointed to hear about the inconsistencies with the food and we will be addressing it with our kitchen staff. As with most restaurants at the moment, we are also struggling to find ingredients that are regularly featured in our dishes. That being said, the kitchen staff do pride themselves on the preparation and consistency of the menu. We all look forward to our regular purchasing channels opening back up to normal. TWH Team
The service was very slow. There was only one cook and one waiter for the entire restaurant, so it was not the fault of the waiter — he was doing the best he could. Go if you have plenty of time … like 2 hours … for your meal.
Hi Janice, thank you for taking the time to write a review. Yes, we are short-staffed at the moment, as are all restaurants. We apologize for the slow service. Hopefully, there should be more people available to work in the restaurant industry and things will get back to normal. The Wine House Team.
Wonderful restaurant! Always great food, wine and service.
I have never been to a restaurant where service was as good as this place.
They were very friendly and the food was good!
Lovely seafood menu, delicious wines. I've been there twice, will return, and always am telling people about the food, wine, and outdoor seating. A definite place to wine and dine.
Excellent lunch experience. Food was delicious, beautiful, and interesting.
What a wonderful restaurant! Food was delicious, portions were perfect and service was very good. Wine list was very interesting and had a great variety; price point by the glass was very affordable. Overall, we enjoyed our experience and will definitely return in the near future!
The Wine House is a favorite of our family. The menu is large and varied, the food is consistently good, and the service is great.
Go for the Wine, stay for the food. Especially the rack of lamb.
The patio is the best! Such a nice atmosphere. Food here is always good, nice range of choices. Wine is very good.
First visit there and ate outside. Beautiful evening, excellent bottle of wine (Poppy cab), food was excellent and the staff friendly, knowledgeable and professional, service excellent as well.
Great as usual but so cold inside. Brrrrr
We have dined at The Wine House many times since it opened. They always do a nice job on all of their dishes, most of which we have tried. Their wine offerings are varied and reasonably priced. Parking is very convenient and free. Highly recommended.
Great food! Perfect setting. Wish they did flights of wine to taste, but otherwise this is a perfect place for date nights!! The staff is absolutely lovely - welcoming and friendly.
The service was exceptional. The waitress made us feel like we were long-time regulars even though this was our first experience. I will definitely return!
Great Restaurant! I would recommend this to anyone!
We enjoyed our dinner at The Wine House. There were several tables outside with umbrellas which we enjoyed on a nice evening. No problem with cicada noise. One person had the cake cakes and the other person had the pork tenderloin. Both were well-prepared. For an appetizer we split the pate which comes with French bread, a lettuce salad, cornichons and spicy mustard. For dessert we both had the crème caramel. Service was relaxed and we were not rushed. Waitress particularly helpful with wine choices. It was an enjoyable evening.
I not only listed in my reservation that it was a birthday celebration but mentioned it to the host as well when I arrived. There was NO acknowledgement of it at all during the meal. That was my biggest disappointment.. loved the food but something to make it a special night would have made it perfect. Why ask if it’s a special occasion if you do nothing?
Love it! Food is delicious.
Great food, also great bc of Restaurant week FFX prices!!
Our server was very attentive and very nice! We sat outside and it was a lovely place to sit.
I'll be back on Friday for a lunch with some ladies!
The beet salad was delicious and the Duck Confit was great also. The smoked salmon tapas were good too.
All in all, a very nice place to dine
Always love going here especially on mussels monday
Great customer service! Felt taken care of. Food was scrumptious! Will definitely go back.
Always a fantastic meal here. The wine list is always amazing. We never pass up a chance to dine here or just stop in for a glass and a snack.
I've been going to the Wine House for years. Always great!
In spite of retracted requirement for masking, the restaurant was fairly empty. We enjoyed the crab cake and cod entree.
Wine list was reasonable,
Casual environment but upscale experience!
You cannot.go wrong here. Perfect service, great meals and dessert with french pressed coffee. Service is immaculate. I had the best chicken ever here and they know how to prepare everything perfectly with awesome sauces companion Vegies. You cannot go wrong. OH ....let them suggest a wine .... awesome!
