Three professional ladies meeting on a Monday evening to download and decompress. Perfect evening. Cocktails were fabulous. The small bites appetizers were so very good. Everything on the menu looked appetizing and judging from what we were served it was a great taste profile. The lounge atmosphere is absolutely beautiful. Lamps were baroque and sexy. Seating is comfortable and conducive to great conversation. Sheer draping is defining yet breezy. We can’t wait to have another outing at this awesome location. Well done Wine Loft!! Thanks Sam and Dan.... Martha, Emily, and Cristina

All the food was very tasty
The pizza is premise so you can’t take anything off you don’t like but they were very good
My only complaint is we asked for a few extra pita chips for the rest of our hummus & they charged us 2 dollars & our bill on the wine alone was over 200.00
Not sure that made much sense

So this place is great if you want a nice, quick glass of wine. Otherwise go somewhere else. It is not a place to have dinner at, maybe some snacks. The furniture was scary to sit on (maybe I went when there was to much light) everything felt..cheap. Service was great however and I did enjoy the wine.

We went for a date night, and it was amazing. The staff was great, the food was delicious, and the wine selection was awesome. We will definitely be back in the near future.

A nice neighborhood place to hang out and have a good meal. The portion of my charcuterie was quite generous and tasted great. The servers were friendly, helpful and professional. I enjoyed my meal and time there. I highly recommend.

It appears that the owner caters to White crowns. I made reservations was enjoying myself in his establishment and then was asked to move from my seat so that a larger group of whites could sit. They asked me to move to where they had another group (who just so happened to be black people) and they sat us all together. The owner didn't try to comp. me for my inconvenience or anything. I spent well over $150 in his establishment, but I wish I had gone somewhere else to spend my money.

Nice atmosphere and music! Also, great staff. However, that is about it. Carpets stink like they have been wet for a few weeks, owner is all over the place to tell the staff what to do, which makes them really nervous, and worst of all, in the 'artisan' meat & cheese plate, largest portion of meat (by far) was pepperoni, and largest portion of the cheese (by far) was cheddar. If you wanna pay $30 for pepperoni and cheddar, this is your place!

Cool place with a nice vibe. Kind of a limited wine selection especially with the Cabernet Sauvignon. Good food reasonably priced.

Overall it was good but considering how empty it was, our service was lack-luster at best.

We were provided free champagne at the end but it took an incredible amount of time for everything to come out.

The Wine Loft is turning to be one of my wife and my favorite places to go for "date night" or a relaxing meal with conversation. The food is excellent, the wine selection are great, and being able to sit on a sofa makes it ideal for couple's conversations. We have spent 2-3 hours each time at the Wine Loft, never felt rushed and always left feeling relaxed and satisfied. It is a little expensive, so we cannot recommend it for everyday dining, but it is a monthly treat for us.

The restaurant has an overall romantic atmosphere, but the seating leaves much to be desired. The section we were sat in had four love seats/couches (were VERY warn and had pieces of material falling off of them) facing eachother so that you would stare at the couple directly in front of you the entire meal. The lighting and music were great, but made for a slightly uncomfortable experience while trying to have a romantic evening.

I took my sister here for her birthday, as she is a vinophile. It was rather disappointing; the down stairs couches were very dilapidated and uncomfortable. The upstairs seatng was a little better, but still very dated (well used). the service was great, but the food was not worth cost at all.

The food was great, their wine list was impressive and the mixed drinks were good. On top of that it was a really cool, funky vibe; a relaxed lounge with dark lighting. Fantastic wait staff and very welcoming and friendly owner. Highly recommend!

We tried to go to a trendy new restaurant that doesn't take reservations (pretty annoying). The wait was 2 hours... for probably mediocre food. I found the Wine Loft on Open Table and I will definitely be going back! Everyone was so pleasant - the server, the bartender, the owner. The food was unique and great. I loved my jalepeno, zucchini, triple cheese panini and my husband really enjoyed his margherita pizza. The server was really knowledgeable about the wine and helped us choose a great bottle. If you're feeling adventurous, try the boubonator- you won't be disappointed!
