Fiasco & Claret Wine Bar is a neighborhood restaurant and bar with a warm and inviting atmosphere that combines welcoming service with an eclectic interior.

The menu is seasonally inspired and bold in flavor. House made vodka battered calamari, prosciutto bruschetta and our Chunky Avocado salad are just some of the features in our shareable category. Main plates include the house favorite, Spicy Shrimp & Polenta, Grilled Chicken Piccata and Basil Pesto Fusili. We serve lunch and dinner during the week and feature an Italian brunch menu on the weekends.

Drink offerings were developed by Bar Manager, Phillip Thompson, and Wine Director, Chris Horn; and will feature a wide assortment of spirits, cocktails, wine and beer.

It was a busy Friday evening, and when I checked in with the hostess I was seated in Fiasco but was intending to be in Claret. She quickly re-seated us in the wine bar, but my request interrupted the flow of the staff. I’d like to suggest a feature on the OT app to choose a table at Fiasco or at Claret. Thank you!

Wonderful experience with Ben and Phil! We almost never get a date night out and took the chance to sit at a table. Everything was perfect from start to finish. The portions were large enough to share and be full at the end of the dinner. We also loved being able to browse Claret (the wine shop) and bring the bottle to our table to enjoy with our food. Couldn’t recommend this spot more. Thanks for making our date night so special 💕

It was just too loud to really enjoy. The food was good, not exceptional, but hard to share and talk with the rest of the members at the table. The waitress was very good.

We took our 13 year-old grandson there and had a great time. Among the 3 of us we had the margarita pizza, the bib lettuce salad (wonderful dressing), the papradella bolognese, and the clam linguini. Each was freshly prepared with just the right amount of seasoning. The dessert was equally well prepared - the little doughnuts with caramel and chocolate dipping sauce were fabulous! Highly recommend

Excellent flavor to breakfast foods. Music was too high to converse comfortably. Nice setting and ambiance. Friendly staff. Well priced.

Our third time at Claret and it is now officially our “go-to.” Everything we ordered was delicious, and I especially like the wine duos: for the price of one glass of wine you get two half glasses so you can try two different versions of the same varietal and compare and contrast. The service team really know what they are serving/pouring and will give you their honest opinion (eg, “it’s heavy on the lemon so you might consider asking for the lemon on the side”). The only service glitch was at the end when our waiter didn’t return to take our dessert order after bringing us the dessert menu. HOWEVER, when we asked for the bill he apologized for his absence and gave each couple a $10 gift card to make peace. Oh, and for a reason I still don’t completely understand, there were glasses of champagne waiting for us at the table when we arrived. Cheers to that! Like I said, it’s our new local. I look forward to trying out one of the wine tasting classes down the road. Claret is MUCH quieter than Fiasco, which is the front venue (same space).

Service was excellent. Not keen on the automatic 20% service charge.
