This place seems like the restaurant is more of a hobby in relation to the wine shop. The food is good but not amazing. Fried oysters delicious but served with mayonnaise and cocktail sauce. Brussels sprout “salad” was roasted, not shaved and served warm. And $18 ! For “large” serving of “salad”. Server very nice - but food was slow coming out. Wine selection is awesome though. I remember why I don’t come here regularly. For the price many better restaurants in Cville.
The mushroom soup was superb and his wine options are unbeatable.
Disappointing meal last Saturday: fatty Hot Pot meats, tasteless Texas Red Deer special, odd "mushroom soup" that was more French Onion and soggy bread than mushroom. Salads were simple but perfectly chilled and refreshing, roasted veggies with deer were delicious. We opted for a bottle that the owner, Bill, suggested, but were disappointed (flat taste, thin feel). I'd advise ordering by the glass.
Dinner was absolutely delicious and the wines amazing.
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
