Excellent food, service, and wine suggestion
First time visit and it was great. Entrance is through the wine shop and tasting bar. It is small nut very comfortable. Menue was limited nut there are specials posted. Had scallops which were wonderful. You can ask for a particular wine to go with the meal, ask for a recommendation and try some samples to see what you might like. Can get a glass or half glass. That was a fun aspect of the meal. Really lovely service and evening. Definitely going back.
Great food and a great way to try nice wines that you wouldn't otherwise want to pay for. The owner recommended some great wines to go with our meals. We all got flights so we could try several different wine options. It was great fun and we'll definitely be back.
Nice spot. A bit dated interior. Great service and food was very tasty, however portions a bit too small for price. Great wine options.
As the name would imply Tastings is attached to a wine shop. Flights are readily available & happily customized. The food is consistently excellent with an emphasis on local, seasonal ingredients. My only complaint is that the restaurant area is a bit tired & dated.
Food portions very small and overpriced. Only one server who seemed stressed and over worked. Waited 40 min just for appetizer the waited another 30 for the entree.
Nice people poorly run restaurant
We had not been to tastings in a while and had forgotten why we liked the venue. The food emphasizes local fare and is well prepared. The menu is quite extensive and there are many specials hat change frequently depending on availability of ingredients. The wine selection is endless - this is a retail wine shop. The staff is helpful in pairing wines and open to tasting prior to purchase. The corking fee is reasonable. We will not wait as long to return - Parking also could not be more convenient.
Inventive modern versions of excellent French cuisine and a superb wine list - a quiet overlooked gem - go and enjoy!
Tastings has the best wine selection in Charlottesville and the best guide to tasting, Bill Curtis. The food is creative and wine friendly - the best of New York and Paris.
It is a great place for dinner with friends, nice atmosphere and a great wine shop. You can pick out your own wine to match your dinner. We had great meals with great wine. We will return when we are in Charlottesville again.
