                                      First time patronizing Era and it didn’t disappoint. They had wide selection of rare international wines and offered 3,6 and 9 oz tastings. The food was amazing and our server Nicole was fabulous! The decor inside was chic and they also have outdoor seating with umbrellas for shade. We will definitely come back soon!!

                                      It's always a treat to visit Era. The servers are glad to see you and will work very hard to make you happy. The selection of wine is both deep and wide. The food choices are varied, and all have been delicious. Do NOT miss the Torta Della Nonna.

                                      Enjoyed the ambience and service very much. Our server was great. The food was just OK. I would recommend the samosas and the dates.. those were very tasty. We did not enjoy the chicken wings and the burger.

                                      Overall it was a nice chill spot, I would recommend you to bring your own straws (if that’s what you prefer to drink out of) because they don’t provide those.

                                      This was our second trip to ERA Wine; our first one was for brunch on the weekend, which was very good. We wanted to try the dinner service; if you are not a fish person, there were limited choices. One a huge ribeye, the other a burger. My partner got the burger, which was a little overdone and could have used some seasoning. I tried the pesto pasta dish with shrimp; the shrimp were well seasoned and cooked just right; the pesto sauce could have used some seasoning. We did the service and our server was very well versed in the wine and food, though she did allow that our two entrees were the two she had not tasted yet. we will give it another try, as we enjoy the neighborhood and the atmosphere.

                                      This is going to be one of the crown jewels of Prince Georges County. The food, the wine, and the environment was perfect. My husband and I went there for the first time yesterday night and as business owners every expectation was met. The staff was friendly, but still exercised the highest level of dining hospitality. It's a down to earth vibe but you can still come dressed up. The menu has a Mediterranean feel about it being the owners are from Zambia. Try the dates!!!! I have never had dates until I ate theirs. And they also have a South African wine list selection. Highly recommend.

                                      Era was nice! The service was amazing and the staff was very knowledgeable of the wine selection. The food was just OK, but you really don’t go to a wine bar for food. I’ll definitely be back

                                      1st time at Era. We will return. The ambiance was perfect for us; quiet despite a full house. Lovely wine selection but seemed overweighted with expensive options. We choose a French bottle which was delicious. The samosas were delicious. We had a lovely wait staff who was very pleasant but a tad overwhelmed. It is a family run operation which we liked a lot. Overall a very nice evening

                                      I took a dear fried to Era Wine Bar for his retirement. I chose Era because of reviews I had read and recommendations from other friends. The service was impeccable, the food was delicious, and the wines we tasted were fabulous. Thank you for making a special occasion so perfect.

                                      Great wine list! Will return for the excellent selection of 3 and 6 oz pours. Outstanding service…great staff all around! Food is approachable but not necessarily memorable…that’s the only thing keeping this from a five star review.

                                      Had brunch this past Sunday. Arrived promptly for 12 noon reservation. We were taken to our table, but they appeared to still be setting up. Ordered shrimp and grits which was quite tasty, but the mimosa was blah. All of the wait staff was very friendly, though there was a time we needed salt and our waiter was no where to be found. The restaurant is very pretty and intimate. I would return.

                                      Wonderful food and drink. But pretty sure my sister and I were a product of age and color discrimination because we looked younger. Not to mention my sister looks very young and they didn't even card her. We made a reservation for 8pm. We walked in and stood at the door for a solid five minuets before being greeted. Not to mention three waitresses passed us up. Finally someone sat us down but they didn't clean our table properly. They just cleaned it with a rag. *this is of note because afterwards we saw them clean plenty of tables with spray and a cloth. After ordering the food and drinks came out very fast. But as we sat by the door, we noticed that as soon as other guests came in they were greeted promptly. Especially if the guests were non black. Which is sad because I wanted to support this establishment knowing they were black owned. We never received water nor napkins until our meal was done. Our server would spend a significant amount of time away from us also. What really put the nail in the coffin was when it came time to pay. Our waiter literally stood over me to watch me pay as if I was going to run out on the check. Weirdest moment ever. Will never go back despite how good the food and wine was. Not to mention all staff consistently bent over backwards to appease other races....such a slap in the face. Would've gladly tipped accordingly but whole night was trash.

One suggestion: get an espresso maker for people who want/need a caffeine jolt after enjoying wine. We love supporting great businesses in Prince George’s county! Will definitely return.

                                      My wife and I went for Valentine’s Day this year. They had a special menu and drink selection with interesting options. The food was delicious! The service was very poor. One of our meal options never came so we opted for dessert. A bartender came from behind the bar and another server came separately to check on us because we were left with all of our empty dishes and without wine, dessert, and water for almost an hour. Also, the table next to us was left dirty from when we sat down to when we left.

                                      Love it…great wine, perhaps as good or better food. A real gem.

                                      It was a very underwhelming experience. We usually give a restaurant 3 tries but not this time.

                                      Great place to grab a bottle among friends and hang out. Little noisy inside but food and drinks make that up.

                                      Poor service. No guidance with the wait staff. 25 minutes after being seating were we attended to. Wait staff apologized and thanked us for being patient, but the poor service continued. Was not even given our wine order. We closed the check and left to go elsewhere. I won't be going back.

                                      Date night with hubby. Great service. We were a little late for reservation however they still was able to accommodate. We were seated immediately. Great selection of wines. The ambiance is very nice for a date night. Will definitely go again.

                                      Wine selection was good and the food was fine. Both were more expensive than expected. Service was great, though.
