We love going to Wine Maniacs! The wait staff is awesome and so knowledgeable about wines. The meals are fabulous (GREAT Chef) and we've never had a wine we didn't like there. We ate outside and were very comfortable!

Had a wonderful experience here. Our waitress was very attentive, and was always on time to take empty plates and refill drinks. Would recommend this for anyone looking to take there S.O. on a nice date night.

This is usually one of our favorite spots for wine and food. On this particular visit we were disappointed in the staff. I had called ahead to make sure our table would be outside as one person in our group has a medical condition and we wanted to sit outdoors. We were assured that it would be available and it was when we arrived. The server asked us if we wanted her to wear a mask as she said they are not wearing them (currently there is a state mask mandate in place). We asked that our server wear a mask due to our friend's medical condition and she agreed. Our server wore her mask for the first part of our visit however half way through she took it off and proceeded to come to our table without a mask on, on several different occasions. This was extremely disappointing. I will not be returning to Wine Maniacs during the pandemic and I will be sharing my experience with other people, so they can decide if they would feel safe visiting when the servers do not wear masks, even when requested by restaurant guests.

Wonderful dinner with attentive enthusiastic waitress in a relaxing atmosphere. Had the wine pairing dinner for 2, 3 course meal with 3 wine samplers. Delightful. Shared glass of wine keeps you from overdoing it and a full house slowed down service, but allowed for more conversation. Look forward to my next visit.

Every time we eat at Wine Maniacs it is a magical evening. Jamie is so attentive and works very closely with their fabulous chef, Jason. They do an awesome job of pairing their wines with their courses. Food and wine taste exquisite!! Jamie is the most fabulous server we have ever had the pleasure of taking care of us!! Highly recommend Wine Maniacs.

We've been coming to Wine Maniacs for the past couple of years and they never fail to offer tasty food and good wine pairings.

Their charcuterie board is one of the best in southeastern Wisconsin and probably a broader area.

The service is always helpful and informative.

We enjoy the atmosphere of Wine Maniacs and the service is good. What keeps you coming back (aside from the really enjoyable wines) is the taste and flavor of the food. Creative - but not for creative sake and well prepared and plated from the kitchen.

My meal was noodles, peas and bacon bits, no sauce and no cheese. The server went missing for 45 minutes after she gave me the food, So I could not tell her that something was wrong with my food. The selection of wine is great. Unfortunately the food is not.

I enjoy a nice glass of wine and this is the place to get just that. We had reservations for 6 pm, we were a little early and we were seated immediately. Then the table next to the fireplace opened up and we were asked if we would like to move over. Thought that was nice. We each had 2 glasses of wine. We thought the wine to be a bit pricy, but then to our surprise, we were charged half price. That was nice. We were disappointed in the food. We had the flatbread, lacked in flavor. I had the risotto, thought it could have been creamier. My husband had bbq pork sliders, he thought perhaps there could have been more sauce. Service was very good, attentive enough. I would go back with a friend who likes wine, I think my hubby was unimpressed

Dinner was good but I thought the food for the Oct. Cool Kids wine pairing was a little flat could use more seasoning. The food is usually outstanding so perhaps it was just an off night.

The food was excellent and the service was great. The only issue we had was the price. It was rather pricey for what you get. I think at least including a salad would be reasonable. Plus provide some crackers or something similar with the wine tasting.

My husband and I had a "Top Notch" Saturday lunch dining experience at Wine Maniacs. The weather was perfect, which allowed us to dine on the outdoor patio in the beautiful sunshine. Our waiter, Rich, was very attentive and friendly.
We each ordered the lunch special with 1/2 of day's sandwich and a cup of soup. I had the white chicken chili, and my husband ordered the tomato veggie soup, which were both excellent.To complement our meal, we enjoyed a bottle of the 2016 Napa Cellars Cabernet; with enough left over for our dinner at home.
All in all, a great dining experience!!

Sampled six different wines with helpful descriptions from our server. She also helped us pair our wine with dinner. Not many diners for a Friday evening, but the staff was very friendly and helpful.
