Overall very nice evening with my wife. I know that it’s COVID times but very quiet for a Thursday evening. Waiter was respectful and allowed us to have some alone time while enjoying a glass of wine. Food was portioned ok but the cheese tray was delicious. The honey and Brie cheese made our evening.

We were shocked at the prices of a wine tasting. It’s $40 a person for (5) 1/4 glasses of wine that all tasted the same. The appetizers were good, and the server was very good. Prices are too steep for wine tasting; we will not go back.

They are currently undergoing some renovations, so there were AC issues and rather warm. Food good - not as good as it used to be, but it is a great atmosphere to hang out with friends.

Nice areas to relax and enjoy wine while not feeling like you are sitting right next to others. Flatbread was good too. Waitstaff not really friendly or attentive

Surprisingly a great spot for brunch!! Carafes of mimosas, nice little signature brunch option that's very well priced. Started off with the biscuits and gravy and they were DELICIOUS - highly recommend. I tried the eggs benedict and it was pretty good, but next time I would definitely order the chicken and waffles for myself because that was awesome!!

Great ambiance, the food was amazing. They had quite a few tables but it was not overly loud. Wine was wonderful and the booths were nice. Wonderful quite date night. They had a saxophone player playing some really good ambiance music. We will definitely be back.

At arrival it was nice to just sit at the bar and try one of their house wines and get some info. We were then seated in an empty room and ordered the crab cakes. At first bite they were amazing. But then we got into the middle and they we’re cold. The waiter came up and we informed him of this but were done with them and said we would just take them home and warm them up. I ordered the sea bass and the hubby ordered the filet medium rare. Fish came out looking and tasting amazing but my husbands steak was completely raw. No apology just asked if they could take it back and reheat we said yes but he ended up eating half of my meal and was full. Again no apology and then proceeded to ask if we wanted the wine membership. We thought about it and with the experience we had we decided it was a no. The wine was great food tasted good just wish it was cooked all the way.

Our food arrived 1 1/2 hrs after we sat down. It was barely luke warm. We had to ask the waitress to turn the music level down so the four of us could hear each other. The waitresses were friendly enough but the kitchen staff must be terribly over worked to perform so poorly.

Absolutely amazing food, their wine selection was great! The best part is you can take it with you if you don’t finish the bottle. And the live music made the dinner even better.
