About

Permanently Closed - WG Kitchen & Bar is a full service restaurant and bar featuring a 1500 label retail wine shop. Guests will enjoy our bistro style menu ranging from small plate appetizers (charcuterie, assorted cheeses, our family recipe meatballs and more) to full entrees (seafood, pasta, steak, lamb). We have 40+ wines available by the glass or, for the adventurous, by the flight, which is an individual wine tasting comprised of 4 wines in a specific category. We also carry 12+ craft/import/domestic bottled beers. And, finally, guests can enjoy one of our specialty cocktails or their preferred drink from our full bar.



Guests can enjoy excellent, full service at our bar or on our beautiful patio on a first come, first serve basis. OR you can make your reservation for our dining room now.
Either way, we can't wait to see you!

We eat there often. I have never been disappointed. The food is different than you find anywhere else but is spectacular. The wine flights are always very good with your meal. It always seems easier to get in there on a busy night than most other restaurants. I recommend it highly.

Awesome spot. The food was really great. Waiter was very good and friendly, also made great food suggestions. Has a wonderful wine deal on Monday with no corking fee. Dinner tasted amazing.

It was more expensive than the quality should warrant. The service was good. The atmosphere was more like a cafeteria than that of a restaurant. Overall, I would not return.

If you can deal with the parking on a busy weekend, you'll really like the dining experience. Great staff, great food...a little noisy, but a wonderful date night place.

My biggest problem with a place if its it too quite, and not filled. If a place isn't crowded its no popular in my opinion. I expected more people there on valentines day. That being said my waitress was great.

Hubby and I had our VD dinner here. Overall it was a great experience. How often do you find Beef Wellington on the menu?! Yummy! I asked that it be rare but it came out medium, but it was still delicious. It was great fun buying the wine flights and sampling each other's wines. The chocolate chip bread pudding was oh so good and HUGE; we could only get through half of it and enjoyed the rest the next day. Our server was slow but friendly so that was ok. Will definitely be back!

Food and wine is always great. I've never had a bad experience. I would highly recommend the Napa Chicken and the lobster bisque

The food and wine selections were excellent. This is the third time I've eaten there within the past six months and the food is still very good. The associates are always very friendly and helpful with wine selections. I'm not a wine person, so helpful hints and small samples lets you decide what kind you like with your meal. So good!

This restaurant is simply great. The staff was very welcoming and friendly, and our server was very knowledgeable and helpful with the wine list/menus. The atmosphere is very modern, but still maintains a level of dark, rustic charm and relaxing ambiance. There are tons of wines available, and the wine list includes flights that are well-matched and priced well. We started with the mussels - I had the filet and my girlfriend had the Chilean sea bass - and we both finished with creme brulee. The food was nothing short of outstanding. I highly recommend this place to anybody as we had a perfect experience and will certainly be back. It's a wonderful place for a relaxing date night. However, it seems pretty versatile, and a great place to go for any occasion!

Always a fun experience at WG Kitchen. We love the wine flights. Food is mixed. Menu items are never very consistent- one visit served with potatoes the next with pasta. The wine flights are the reason we keep coming back. Always a fun date night.
