About the restaurant
Rockwall native, Chef David Hoffman and his wife, restaurant and wine industry veteran Jenni Hoffman, opened The Downing Bottles & Bites in order to bring their experience and expertise home to historic Downtown Rockwall. When you stop in, you'll be greeted by our retail and tasting area, where you can purchase wine and craft beer by the bottle to enjoy at home.
Or stay awhile in our cozy café, where Chef David and his team serve up the very best small plates, sandwiches, and salads, desserts. Our full-bar offers seasonal and classic cocktails, fine wines, and craft beer. With both indoor and patio seating, it's the best spot for a date, girl's night, family dinner, or quick weekday lunch in Rockwall.

About the restaurant
Established in 2012, I started Urban Grill and Wine Bar to add a quality restaurant with a full bar and boutique wine list to an area that is in desperate need of something unique and family operated. Having spent most of our adult lives in the restaurant business, my wife Jaylene and I understand the importance that our food be of the highest quality and our service be very friendly and professional. Our menu offers a variety of dishes from simple but delicious sandwiches to the best steaks and seafood around.

About the restaurant
We serve up tasty farm-to-kitchen dishes and cocktails, all made from scratch with ingredients sourced from local and regional farms and markets. We use slow-cooking methods on our wood grill and spit and in our smoker because it tastes better that way. Come dine with us at our communal tables, in one of our booths, on our sofas or rocking chairs, or perhaps on the porch next to the fireplace.

Nice ambiance. Great food and service. We had reservations and on Saturday evening there looked to be significant wait sans reservations. Did take a bit to get our meal but was very tasty. Deserts were incredible!

Service was great. Our waiter Mark takes his job very seriously. He felt a bit stiff and rigid. We chuckled cause it felt like he had his routine and spiel and was gonna stick to his service plan. It was kinda apparent he has a way of doing things. He certainly takes his job seriously. The food was good but not outstanding. I got the featured scallops. They were cooked perfectly. The risotto was tasty but nothing spectacular. My date thought the salmon was good. The martinis were good. Overall it was good. Didn’t blow us away but it was good.

Denton
About the restaurant

In 2001, Hannah's opened its doors in the heart and soul of Denton. Now, over two decades later, our establishment has grown with support of our community. What once started in a simple space on Hickory Street now resides within these historic walls that was formerly a blacksmith, fostering an eclectic cuisine that mirrors the artistic essence of Denton. Locally owned and operated by the same owner, ensuring unwavering commitment to Hannah’s and support to community outreach.

We take pride in collaborating, as much as possible, with local farmers, ranchers, and businesses to bring you the finest offerings. Our dedication extends to the selection of wines, coffee, spices sourced from smaller producers to provide our customers with a distinctive and curated experience.

Chef Anton, with 25 years of global culinary experience, leads our kitchen with creative mastery. Trained in Europe, having worked internationally, he now calls our local community home. Enjoy his inspired creations.
