We were unaware of the full menu they had. We enjoyed a fresh delicious dinner by the fire in a quiet spot. The ambience of the bar area is so quaint and the couches make gathering with friends terrific.

Great place to go for a quiet dinner. The food was excellent. They offer ½ portions on many dishes, so you can order halves of two different items, although the ladies found one ½ portion to be plenty.
Great service. We'll be back.

Our server Brianne was exceptionally helpful and professional. Each of the meals ordered at our table for 4 was wonderfully prepared and delicious. They were very attentive to our gluten free require minutes.

Always great service and food. My wife and I go on Thursday evening to take advantage of the 1/2 portion, 1/2 price menu. The 1/2 portion is plenty of food for a normal appetite. There are usually very few other patrons on the restaurant side on Thursday so it’s quiet. The bar is a bit more crowded as they offer $6.00 martinis on Thursdays and it’s a stopping point for folks after work.

Overall it was fine but, the wine selection was less than expected. Wine by the glass had a good selection but only a few in the Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. No flights of wine offered I wanted to do a wine tasting but it was not available. The lounge area was very noisy. The service was good so no issues there. I ordered pasta which mine was over done, and my friends pasta was dry as if it was around for a while. The charcuterie was disappointing with only a few meats and not very tasty. I would not order it again. The cheese board was also lacking. They could have done better. Nothing really bad but also nothing really special. Probably a good place to hang out but not for a special dining or wine experience

Always a great meal and service. We go regularly on Thursday evenings for the 1/2 portion 1/2 price special. Their 1/2 portion is plenty of food and affords is the opportunity to go out more often. Staff is very professional. Have been there numerous times and always have a good experience.

The ambience was great, felt like being in New York. We were greeted immediately and seated in the dining area. Our server, Jen, was very welcoming. The menu selections were wonderful, making tough to choose, and the wine list had excellent selections. We were there on a Thursday evening when the portions could be half and the price was half. There was an ample sized half portion that was more than enough. The service was great. We were able to carry on a conversation without straining to hear. All in all we were very pleased.

Similar to prior visits to The Wine Bar, food was excellent, service was excellent (thanks Brianna), and ambiance was excellent. See where this is going? Every time I've been to this restaurant, I've only had positive things to say. We were six people on a Saturday night. Restaurant seemed a bit quiet but it is the summertime. Anyway, that was to our advantage as the bar area was open allowing us to sit for a half hour for a round or two of drinks and we didn't have to share Brianna our server with too many other tables. I will certainly be back soon...

Food was excellent; a bit noisy being open to the bar area. With having a large flight of stairs, wish they had an elevator for seniors, which I thought was the law for renovated structures.

Fun place to hang out. Our server was amazing! However, there was initially a little confusion. We didn't get our drink order taken for at least 15 minutes. Apparently there was some training going on, but that should not interfere with our order.

Once that was accomplished, everything else was great. The pianist was outstanding. It was a very upscale casual place to stop in for tapas and a drink. There are lots of lounge chairs to eat in at the piano bar. In fact the next time we go, we're going to stay in the lounge.
