I had my birthday here in May, and I can't recommend it enough. Our waitress treated us like family (the kind you like) -- attentive, friendly, quick --, the food/drinks were great, and they even threw in something extra as we were leaving.

Seating is a bit limited, so I'd recommend getting there early to snag a table for a bigger group.

The bar charges an additional tax over the wine price.

Disgruntled barmaid, who repeatedly served a man clearly strung out on heroin, refers us to owner. Alleged owner, a slacker clad in a "Mr. Happy" T-shirt who previously served as bartender now comping his filthy breadhead friends, says he can charge what he wants and claims we won't find the same wine at the same price "anywhere."

Dis-service. Clientele mostly losers drinking on "owner's" dime. And sad junkie being fleeced like otherwise return patrons.

Wonder what the "owner's" dad thinks of this.

Cons: Reprehensible 'Service' from Alleged 'Owner'

Arrived at 9.45pm and got nice table at the back. Our waiter for the evening was a nice relaxed guy. We gave him our taste choices of red wine and he recommended a bottle from a long list. The wine list is a good, strong list of various wines and price range was good for all budgets. Unlike other experiences, our waiter didn?t try to sell the most expensive (very refreshing) but actually offered us a wine he liked and thought we would also. He was spot on.
We ordered food: Tuna Sliders, Skewered shrimp, Bacon n Figs followed by a cheese plate.
Tuna sliders were tip top. Skewered Shrimp were great and had a little spicy kick which was not overbearing. I liked the Bacon n Figs for its generous cut and strong flavour but the girlfriend wasn?t over keen-if you like good bacon I think you will like it. Cheese plate was good with some nice choices of cuts.
Had a peak at what other tables had ordered and I wanted to try the Meat Plate - cuts of meats n sausage and the Pigs in Blankets. Finished off with a bottle of decent beer from the UK that was properly priced.
The Check arrived and left happy. Would I go back - yes, and I am next week with friends. Would I recommend it ?yes
Our waiter, Mike, turned out to be the owner. Nice guy who was interested in points of views about his new establishment.
Ps. I didn?t know the owner before we went to this place and have no financial gain or gifts on this review. Please keep Citysearch honest by not allowing owners or affiliates to write reviews of their own establishments.
Oh, once last thing-its a full serving bar so all should be happy!

So I returned a week later with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday. We had a place at the bar and ordered Tuna Sliders, Chicken Liver Moose, Shrimp Skewers, Pigs in Blankets and the Meat Platter. All was very good - so good we had to ask for 3 more orders of Tuna Sliders! The music's content and volume is perfect. This place is a gem !

Pros: Ambience, Food, Wine List and Service

Cons: Looking and can't find any

This is a great place to seek refuge from the sports pub. You can enjoy friends and conversation while having great wine, beer, cocktails and food at your fingertips. Service is exceptional.

I had a girlfriend in from miami and found this place from this website. We went there and had blast. We catched up and enjoyed talking to the owners. I had such a great time at the resturant that I took some business cards to my job to pass to my colleagues.
Also the food is great and the wine list is amazing. They also commendate you if you want something off the wine list. Check out there website.
Great customer service. I'll be back soon.

FYI- The place is in the basement can be missed if not looking for it.

Pros: Great atomsphere!!!

Cons: Only one bathroom and limited of food items. But, the food that they have is excellent.

Got together with some friends here on a Friday night. It's a great place with wonderful wine and beer (apparently the martinis are good too). There's enough room for a large-ish group (maybe 8 people), but it's also cozy enough for a small group.

Pros: Service, Wine list

Cons: None

A great spot to come with a group, as in addition to having a strong (and often unusual) selection of wines, they also have a full liquor bar...something for everyone!

The owners are fun guys, who make great recommendations. The snacks offered are quite tasty too.

Wonderful for after-work, later at night...really any time.

In Short
Taking cues from the street itself, the bar keeps it casual with the staff's faded tees and a cozy neighborhood ambience, enough to convince even non-wine drinkers to hang out. The accessible, varied wine list holds the…
