We came for a girls night and it was a lovely time, the staff was very accommodating and attentive. Only wish was that the Wine & board tues/wed deal be a bit more substantive/have more on it. But overall, a great time.

We absolutely loved our experience. The food came out in a timely manner and was delicious, and all staff members were cordial and efficient in fulfilling our wine orders (with the wine being fabulous, as usual).

I am somewhat disappointed at the menu change. In doing so, options for brunch related items significantly reduced. Adding mojo sauce to the breakfast sausages nearly ruined the dish. Don’t over complicate breakfast to the point where it is no longer breakfast.

I had an overall good time with my party of four. The food was really and we enjoyed the atmosphere and wine. I think that only thing that upset me was when our waiter came back with our receipt and gave us attitude about the tips and told us the right amount we needed to provide for the next time we come. Although, I did not contribute to the bill and tip since it was my birthday brunch. It was not necessary for him to come off disrespectful.

We asked our waiter if he recommended one of the merlots over the other, his response was, “I’m not really a wine drinker.” I would expect a little more from the wait staff at a winery, some base knowledge would’ve been helpful when deciding.

We had a lovely afternoon sitting outside with a water view. The all day menu is a light bite kind of thing so if you're really hungry, you want to order a couple of items. I had the oak barrel chardonnay which was nice enough. My friend had a bloody mary and reported that it was perfect.

Took out town friend to this neighborhood staple. We had reservations for 830 PM. We were seated, water was brought out promptly. After approx 10 mins I got one of the manager’s attention to let them know about the lack of server attention to us after having sat down. She was super nice and brought out bubbly on the house. The server finally showed up and our orders put in. We ordered a few small plates and some flights. The food came out normally, but the order of drinks was a disaster. We ended up order something less complicated to drink. Over all nice place, but the bad service from the server is what my friends walked away with.
