Insulted and a disdainful place.\r

It was not a bad place up until the owner, Mike, showed his true colors and showed the refuse of a person he is, and hope not a racist! He really thinks he's all \r

The music was annoying and way too loud for conversion; the clientele was rude; the bathrooms were filthy; people were in the parking lot eating out of the back of a pick-up; and the service was awful -- the bartender looked past us and we

Great wine bar, good ambiance, and good selection of wines. On a nice day, you can sit in their beautiful and lush courtyard.

My partner and I reside in Dallas, and we were visiting Houston for the weekend. Always on the hunt for a good wine bar, we happened upon 13 Celsius. All I can say is, I wish this wine bar was in Dallas.\r

First off: I love 13. I love the ambiance. I love the building. I love the neighborhood.

Getting over my hang ups: I just can't justify spending $13/glass. Or waiting 30 min for my glass. It can be dead as a doornail or busy as a bee but

Pros: sparkling shiraz, patio - trust me, that's all you need

Cons: price, food selection, parking

We had a very enjoyable time at 13 Celsius. Everything from the wine to the service was top notch. Too far for us to be regulars but, if we were closer, it would be a regular spot for us.

Pros: Selection, Quality, Ambiance

Cons: Too far from home (Kingwood)

Went here on a Tuesday to have the cupcake and wine pairing, something they only do on Tuesdays I found out. All of the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The cupcakes were delicious as was the Panini. A great place to meet friends

Pros: The staff and the wine list

I think the pros and cons probably mostly cover it... this is a fine place for me where I don't feel weird being a wine amateur but wanting to enjoy good wine.

Pros: good mood, helpful waiters, good wine list, great cheese!

Cons: easily get pricey, a little dark

If you can make the drive... it's a lot of fun. It's unique with outdoor seating. The atmosphere is kind of cold but it fits the style so it's not likely by accident. The wine selection is long as well as the meat/cheeses. Me and my girlfriends had a blast when were here but the drive was a bit of a pain. We'll try it again if we ever make it down there with gas prices the way they are! Does 13 Celsius offer free taxis to outer-loopers? haha..

The thing that I most love about this place and what would keep me coming here it the building. They did a great job on it and I love everything about it. The guys behind the bar (owners?) are hugely knowlegable about their wines. I've always enjoyed their recommendations. The cheese plates are very good and nicely presented. They have a really good beer selection. Try the Fireman's #4 which is a Texas beer that's turning up on tap and in bottles all over town these days. Some of the women that work their could use an attitude adjustment at times. I've had friends complain about this too. The guys are always nice but the woman are just rude sometimes. There's never an excuse for that and this place, though it does a nice steady business, has never been really crowded the many times I have been there so it's not like they were being testy because they were really busy. Of course, that won't stop of from going, we just avold the ladies working there.

Cons: female employees

We love this place! The wine selection is excellent and affordable. Our first time there, Mike, the owner, offered us multiple tastings before we made up our minds on a bottle. We've been several times since, and seen the wine list change and diversify. Mike is very knowledgeable and has continued to be very helpful. The rest of his staff is perhaps not as motivated or passionate about what they do. The food selection is very enjoyable. There is an increasing number of items to choose from, all very well executed. They choose fine ingredients, and keep the selection simple, sticking to what they know best, with flavors truly reminiscent of Europe. And serving wine at 13 Celsius makes perfect sense in Houston! The decor adds to the charm of this place, although the outside seating is very inviting! Caroline Street is relatively quiet, something rare at other outside venues in Houston. In general, the place is busy enough to be lively, but not so packed that you can't get seating or service. We will definitely spread the word!

I've been going to 13 Celsius, a trendy yet laid-back european wine bar, for a little over a year now. I first found out about it in the Midtown Newsletter via e-mail and was among the first to venture out with friends to the tucked-away location that is very convenient yet several blocks away from the packed & boisterous part of Houston Midtown that most people are familiar with.

The wine list is very impressive although if you're overwhelmed, the extremely friendly & social staff members are always happy to ask a few questions about your tastes in order to lead you in the right direction. When I'm not in the mood for a glass of wine, my favorite options are either their unique beer selection or their very popular sangria. I actually haven't tried the coffee or tea selection, but judging by the amount of activity I see from the coffee maker, they have some popular hot drinks as well. If you're hungry, there's a deli with fresh meat & cheese selections that are regularly changing along with a variety of dessert specials.

Not to toot my own horn too much (toot toot!), but the customers are always great and very friendly. It's generally locals like myself from midtown or surrounding areas. If you go enough, you can pick up on an eclectic crowd of regulars that have made 13 Celsius their regular hang-out spot. If you're in the mood for chatting with some randoms, it's amazing who you come across and it's never hard to find good conversation.

13 Celsius tends to do pretty brisk business on weekday evenings and gets pretty busy Thursday - Saturday as you might imagine. However, it's usually possible to snag one of the uber-comfortable booths, but there are also great alternatives at the huge bar or outside in the courtyard (back) or the front on a quiet street.

Pros: Ambience, Service, Drinks

Cons: Off the beaten path, may have to give directions to first timers

I was underwhelmed by my visit to 13 Celsius, perhaps because of all of the hype I had heard and read prior to my visit. Yes, the architecture is interesting and "preservation-mod cool." They left the cieling and walls and floors "untreated" to preserve the character of the drycleaners it was once. Too bad it is probably just as loud now as it was then, too. My wife and I visited on a Friday evening after dinner. Place was packed with lots of loud talkers in "business casual" trying to be heard over the tinny music with no bass sound (we heard a lot of high-hat and snare, with the occasional yelled lyric). The lack of soft surfaces turns the place into a hard amplification chamber. The bar staff reflected the hard surface of their workspace - no engagement, no warmth, no interaction even to check how we were doing. Not at all what I had expected or hoped for. I won't go back, despite (or because of) how much I loooked forward to liking the place I had heard so much about. Maybe the name of the place reflects one's reception - cool, too cool.
