Excellent place for lunch and dinner. I've been here for both types, and the food is alway fresh and the service is very attentive. Wine house is quieter during weekday lunchtime (good for friend-business meetups) than evenings/weekends, when the vibe is more of a dinner-festive one.

A wonderful dinner. My husband loved his branzino- could not stop talking about how great it was, and my rigatoni with salmon was delicious. Looking forward to going back.

Walking into the restaurant/winery you are greeted by wine bottles for sale and glasses, chocolates that look delicious. We made a reservation which is highly recommended. I got to try a glass of their bubbly moscato and decided to have a bottle with dinner. They have tastings there which we will go back for. The menu has lots of choices as well as the drink menu. We both were deciding on the pork chops and spare ribs so we each got one and we’re not disappointed. Absolutely delicious. The shrimp appetizer also was delicious, the guacamole served with it was very very delicious and maybe they should think about having just that as an appetizer with chips. We were to full for dessert. We did notice there is an option to try 4 different wines with chocolate, and will be back to try that as well.

Another example of dining perfection. My steak was an exacting detail of my request, and the whiskey was paired perfectly. Griff, our server, went above and beyond to offer a fabulous experience.

Enjoyable. Wonderful dinner and ambiance. Spaced out nicely. My only critique is that there weren’t any bread & butter plates. Bread and butter arrived well before dinner but nothing to put it on. I first thought it an oversight but when I looked around I didn’t see any on other tables. I definitely plan to go back. No photos as I actually did not take my phone.
