We enjoy Sable Gate Winery so much, the wine flights are amazing, the wait staff is friendly and attentive. The crab dip and charcuterie boards are delicious!

Sylvia was an amazing hostess. She was the owner and she stepped into serve as one of their servers was out last minute. Very pleasant and very informative. They had a whiskey barrel aged wine that was amazing! Had a great time celebrating my besties birthday.

Sable Gate Winery was a great place. I enjoyed the energy of the staff along with the amazing owners. I got the "Winemaker's Flight", which came with a selection of 5 different wine selections. The food was also very delicious. I am looking forward to going back with a group of friends for a nice night outing.

Sable Gate is a wonderful gem in Midtown area. Delicious boards and pizza. The wine is great- I haven’t had one I didn’t like yet! The owner is so nice and we love how she mingles with guests and gives great recommendations! We joined the wine club and will be back very often.

This is a true wine bar. Szilvia provided a great experience. We purchased a bottle of Pink, if you like sweet I highly recommend it. Another friend did the flight and the knowledge & expertise of Szilvia was fabulous.

Very bad experience. Wine tasted like juice, had to leave more than half of the bottle. The people beside us also left their glasses half full. The charcuterie board was very disappointing. There were cheerios on top of the brie cheese. Also, the cheese was not well cut, the bread was very soft, the prosciutto was thick and rubbery.

Very welcoming atmosphere - I've been to two tastings now and enjoyed it a great deal. The owner/winemaker always takes time to explain the process and each wine. They have a great selection and a very affordable monthly membership. I look forward to my next visit.

Relaxing environment, a great place for wine tasting. Very in depth about the types of wines, they have to offer. Even bought a bottle to take home, that's how good it was. This spot will definitely be on our date night list.

Waitress was extremely rude to our bridal party. We had reservations weeks in advance. When I spoke to someone on the phone over my reservation I emphasized we were a bridal party wanting to do the “wine tasting.” The waitress did not want to serve us the tastings because there were too many “groups.” Her attitude towards us was unnecessary and very rude.

I wish we could say we loved this place, but unfortunately they fell short, very short of any expectation we had for a local winery. We always walk past The Sable Gate Winery, but have never went in, but based on the few positive reviews it had we decided to give it a try. I made a reservation. When you walk up to the establishment the outdoor seating is all put away and stacked- does not have a welcoming feel, makes you think they are closed. The outside electrical features are not finished, for example outlet hanging off, not properly installed.
When you walk in, there is no host stand or anyone to greet-hence reservation- where do you go for your reservation...? There was one server working, but she was not very knowledgeable about any of the wines, she was on her phone majority of the time, she took a few phone calls on her phone; which fine, maybe they don’t have a phone policy for their employees while taking care of customers, but we were trying the red wine tasting and kept waiting for her to realize our glasses were empty repeatedly so we could try the next wine. Also the food is not worth it, I promise. We ordered a “flat bread” which looked exactly like a French bread pizza and it did not taste any better then a frozen pizza from Randall’s. We also ordered a 7 item cheese/ meat board. The server knew some information on the meats and few cheeses, but once brought over she didn’t show which were which. Maybe we’re use to other wineries that are able to explain what is on the cheese/ meat board. The meats were okay, nothing fancy and the cheeses are not worth it. Believe me I love cheese! The inside area behind the wine bar is messy and the area to the left of the wine bar. The music kept cutting out- loud then soft then loud repeatedly; which was very unpleasant.
We really hope they are able flourish because they are in a great location and we love wine.
I hope this honest review helps you with your decision to try Sable Gate Winery.

Went on a Friday night, it wasn’t too busy so can’t attest to a busy night there. All the workers there were very friendly. I ordered a pizza and some wings, food was great and came out piping hot. Had a flight of red wine and a couple of glasses. Nice place for a relaxing evening.

Our first time at Sable Gate was a great experience. We went there before a performance at the Match. They make their own wine with grapes that are purchased. We had a couple of wines and a cheese board. Both wines we tried were great. We will definitely return for more.

My wife and I came to The Sable Gate Winery with 2 other couples to have a wine tasting before going to dinner. The services was awesome. Our server was so knowledgeable about the different types of wine. Because we where not from the area he suggested places for us to go. The owner even came to our table to welcome us to her place. Next time we are in Houston we will differently visit Sable Gate Winery. Thank you for making our Anniversary even more special.

We ordered a 7 item cheese and meat board, a bacon flat bread pizza and a bottle of pinot noir. The food was delicious and the suggested wine was a nice pairing. All wines are made in house from grapes that are imported from around the world. FYI: During happy hour on Wednesdays, everything is 20% off. It is nice to have a winery in Midtown. We will definitely be back.

I must say this was my first time at a winery and I was impressed by Kate she was able to tell me about every wine and I enjoyed the Chef Scotty all the wines and small plate foods were to die for. My favorite wine was called Big Daddy it was a very beautiful red wine! I loved the owner very nice ,sweet lady!! I will be back soon.

The owner greeted me by name when we came in, showed us around, and spent extra time with us explaining the wines. When it came time for a light snack she let up pick our pairings according to what we learned and guided us to great pairings. My experience was so delightful, I am joining their wine club!
