We thought the place was terrific until the bill came. The halibut Special was $55.00 for the entree. Shame on me for not asking the server when I ordered it and shame on The Win Bar for overcharging their customers.
The lounge area was 2/3 of the the room while the restaurant part was 1/3. There is no wow factor to the restaurant side as far as decor/ambiance. The food was a little on the pricey end, but was good enough. I thought the lounge side was very nice, but had 8:30 reservations on a Saturday night and was surprised to see that they had a nice baby grand piano, but no one playing it. I would not go back for dinner a 2nd time, but would definitely hang in the lounge area!
First time here & everything was very good. It's only open a limited number of days a week, but would definitely go back.
Not a huge wine list but well price. Food is ok, stick with apps.
Great food, service and atmosphere
The Wine Bar has the whole package - beautiful vibe, excellent service and great wines. The food was expertly prepared and delicious! We started with the Tuna Tartar and Sausage with Broccoli Rabe. The Lamb Chops, Rib Eye and Sea Bass were amazing!
Fun place, upscale decor, great menu. Food was excellent
Food was really just average nothing special. Atmosphere was very nice, the music was great but the service was terrible. Would recommend going for drinks if you can get a seat at the bar otherwise I wouldn't recommend.
This was my first visit to the Wine Bar and I was so pleasantly surprised at how beautiful it was inside. When you finally make your way up the flight of stairs (WHEW😜) you’re greeted with a beautiful lounge area filled with seating groups with couches and chairs set up around the bar and overlooking the windows onto First Avenue. To the right is seating in the dining room with a nice fireplace roaring against the back wall. There was nice ambient lighting and music.
We were seated by the hostess and greeted by our waitress who was very nice but didn’t seem very experienced. I would have scored higher on the overall score but the service was lacking and that dropped the score but it was just inexperience not inattentiveness or rudeness that was the problem.
Lastly, the food was delicious!! We ordered a special appetizer of filet mignon crostini with a horseradish sauce that was delicious and fried calamari which was also very good. Our dinners were equally as delicious with my husband ordering a special steak, my daughter ordered scallops with risotto and I ordered rib steak with risotto. The only thing I would say is that if my husband had ordered the scallops and had gotten the amount of food on his dish as my daughter he would not have been happy but everything was extremely tasty.
I would definitely recommend The Wine Bar and I will definitely be back.
Food was very good
Went for date night. Arrived prior to our reservation and was able to sit at bar and enjoy happy hour prices for a couple drinks and an appetizer.
We enjoyed our bartender and waitress. Food was good and creative. Love the ambiance of The Wine Bar!
Love love this place.. will be regulars and would love to have an event there..
I have been to The Wine Bar many times and plan to return in the near future. The staff is friendly and helpful as well as polite and mannerly. While the menu is limited, the food is outstanding. I have yet to be disappointed.
There's a beautiful full bar to satisfy your thirst and a comfortable lounge area in which to sit and enjoy your cocktails and/or apps.
In my opinion, the only thorn is limited onsite and street parking. I realize there is a municipal parking lot a short walk away, but during a rain or snow storm or freezing weather, it's no fun.
To sum it up: Try it....you'll like it.
Service wasn't great but the food was all fantastic! We would go back.
We had an enjoyable meal at The Wine Bar and Restaurant this weekend. Unlike so many other places, where the noise level is fierce, you could actually hold a conversation. I had the scallop risotto, which was very good and my husband had the pappardelle, which was a bit salty for his taste, but tasty otherwise. The bread was fresh. Our server was friendly and attentive. I would definitely go back again.
Thursday night Happy Hour is a great deal. 1/2 proces apps and 1/2 price for 1/2 entrees. Great deals on select wines, beers and cocktails. Bartenders are always awesome.
A wonderful fine dining restaurant with an excellent menu. Wine Bar is a must go to if you are in the area.
Excellent food and very smooth service.
ALL of the food was amazing!
We saw Tapas on the online menu and assumed they were available for dinner, but they are targeted for the lounge. We were able to order from the lounge menu (Tapas) as our appetizer. We ordered six for the three of us, all were amazing. Dinner was fantastic also, my rack of lamb was the most tender and flavorful I have ever had. My guests loved their risotto and pasta dishes.
Our waitress was doing her best, but she was the only server handling the dining room of 17 tables, that had ten tables in use.
Bar did not have watermelon for the specialty cocktail on the menu, bar was out of ginger for the second drink, but sourced it from somewhere eventually. And the expresso machine was broke and could only provide decaf expresso.
Food and décor was great! If management could fix the other issues, this would be one of my top, go to restaurants, even though it’s a 45 minute drive for us!
Sophisticated experience. Music a little too loud for close conversation. Service a little spotty. Excellent tapas. Definitely recommend and will go again.
The place is beautiful - but I wouldn't return for dinner. Come here and sit in the big, comfy couches - listen to live music - have some wine and eat some tappas. That's what this place should be for. The sit down dinner part of the restaurant was nothing special. Despite it being almost empty, service was not great and we were never told the specials - only realized it after we heard our waitress telling another table after we had finished!
We really love the food and ambiance here at the Wine Bar! It's a local GEM!!
My husband and I dined 7/22. We love the Wine Bar. It feels like NYC, but close to home. Amazing decor, awesome bar staff, terrific server (Sandra) and fantastic food. I highly recommend the White and Green Asparagus Soup, as well as the Mojito Pork Loin (so delicious!!). The Sweet Pea Hummus was also delicious. My husband loved the 10oz Sirloin with Port Wine Meunière sauce. Amazing. Always a great experience.
We love going to this restaurant. The food is excellent. Very creative dishes prepared well. The staff is lovely. It's also a beautiful restaurant!!
One of our favorites! The food, atmosphere and staff are all great. Nice place for dinner or just drinks!
Been to the Wine Bar numerous times always good meal and good service
The food was very well prepared. Both my husband and I had a very enjoyable experience.
Great atmosphere! Food was very good! Our server Katie was outstanding. Definitely recommend for a date, or drinks in the lounge.
The Wine Bar Restaurant was truly a wonderful surprised. We visited on tasting menu thursdays and sampled a number of dishes. The lamb was cooked perfectly and the house rub is delicious. The seared sea scallops on risotto infused with bacon, peas and cheese was outstanding. The grouper served on a cauliflower patty with a tropical chutney was great. And the toasted sesame ahi tuna was superb.
Food was fresh, and cooked perfectly. Original combinations of veggies for pork dish.
Menu is not large would prefer if they had specials each night to add to the selection.
Our waitress was one of the best we've had in a very long time. She was so pleasant and sweet to all the tables around us. Having a great attitude doesn't go unnoticed and she will be a huge reason we come back to this restaurant. Besides that, the wine was delicious as well as the lobster and sweet pea ravioli.
We usually love it here, but tonight was an exception. First night of the new menu, but items were not available. I ordered the Chilean sea bass and sent it back. It had an overpowering chlorine smell and taste. The waitress and manager apologized profusely and comped us, but it still put a dent in our evening.
Wine Bar has a great bar with couches and comfy chairs so plan to begin the evening with a cocktail or 2 before dining. Then dine in the dining room by the fire and enjoy classy, modern food with decent portion sizes. Desserts and cocktails are also delicious. Always a pleasant and yummy evening out!
My boyfriend and I go out every Thursday and love trying new places so we're always researching. Many restaurants only emphasize the protein on the menu, making the veggie and starch just a simple addition. This menu high-lighted a lot of creative flavor pairings which immediately intrigued me(we eat with our eyes first). My experience there did not disappoint. The food was delicious, the service was great. I suppose my one disappointment was that I was hoping to have panna cotta for dessert, as it showed on the online menu and it was not available for order when I went for dinner. I hope it is next time.
We enjoyed the bar scene immensely. Our server was outstanding - The crafted drinks were one of the best. The Restaurant food was very good, but can be found in most restaurants of this caliber.
pleasantly surprised... food was outstanding. i had a rib eye and my girlfriend had grouper. we dine out often and this meal was one of the best we have had...
We went there for Valentine's Day. The food very good. I would of liked it to come out of the kitchen a little faster. The food server was very good and was there asking if we needed anything right when she was needed. We have been there a hand full of times and always had a great meal and great service every time.
Wine list was great of course. The food is out of this world with a seasonal creative flair . I have been here for bridal/baby showers, drinks and apps in the past but never dinner. They started the meal off with warm bread and a merlot butter that was just wonderful. The apps and food where timed just right. Our server was very pleasant and tried very hard but clearly was in the weeds. We did have to ask to get refills on drinks a few times. Overall it was great dining experience and look forward to going back.
The food was great but they just didn't know we were there . I will try again
It was a valentine dinner and service was horrible our waitress Sandra and management didn't seem very concerned. The table next to me got their drinks late and their waitress said it was on her. After all our problems we were offered nothing.
