Love this local hangout. Friendly, relaxed - not too posh - come as you are atmosphere. I love that this place is locally owned. Want to know what the Longfellow neighborhood is really all about? Start here. Urban, hip, great food, on-site ownership makes this place special.

Pros: Scones! Organic Coffee. Artichoke dip appetizer

Cons: Wine Bar closed Mondays

What a great location for a wine bar. On my first visit, I sincerely hoped I had stumbled upon my new neighborhood hang out. After numerous visits, however, it became apparent that I must keep looking. Gross inconsistency of service combined with questionable execution in the kitchen has forced me out.
The RiverView Wine Bar's menu is anchored by unique pizza selections. However, what the pizza appears offer in creativity; it fails to deliver in flavor. Appetizers are unimaginative (read: cheese plate) and/or quite bland (read: Baked Artichoke and Parmesan Dip). The beer selection would be fantastic...if your chosen brew happens to be in stock. My trips have proven this to be unlikely.
I believe a restaurant cannot be judged on 1, 2, or even 3 visits. Over a half dozen trips, however, it has become clear that I have not received sufficient value to justify continued patronage. My quest continues for a new neighbor hood hangout?(suggestions welcome)

this is my new fave. cozy neighborhood fee,l kiddy corner from riverview theater, yet sophisticated and classy special occasion-type place. love the wine flights! the selection of beer is exciting! live jazz on the patio. staff is friendly, cool, and knowledgeable. bar guy knows his shiz and offers great recommendations. the food is fab. love the roasted beet salad with green apples, gorgonzola, and curry dress. the pizzas are great for snacking - try the gorgonzola pear. yum. the stefano is always good. walt's special is a pleasant surprise. even though they don't have a pastry chef, the italian creme cake they sell is divine and a can't resist kinda thing. i ALWAYS leave here happy and satisfied.

This is a great neighborhood wine bar. I recommend trying the wine flights, the Pear Gorgonzola Pizza (wow), and the Cheese Plate. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable, and fun. Great place for after work or a date.
