                                                              Great atmosphere and vibes. Not as loud or busy on a Friday evening as was expected. Wine Bar is a good location for a first date to get to know each other, while providing good ambiance for everyone to enjoy. There's also a cool patio outside, definitely will come back in the spring/summer!

                                                              Well the most astonishing thing is their website said open till 1 am but the hotel portion announced they are closing at 11 pm. Which was unfortunate as we had trekked all the way out there and then ended up at our usual joint. Update your website if you change your timings saves ppl a lot of heartache! But will state the pizza at the bar on the other end, not the hotel end, was fab as was the service at the bar! Must go, however, call ahead and make sure they are open!

                                                              I love the idea of the wine bar with small bites, but if you are going to have a small menu you should probably make sure you are not running out of food or wine listed on the menu - both of which happened when we visited. If you run out of a wine by the glass, you replace that selection with something else, especially when you only have a few things available by the glass. Also, although the anchovy salad is described as having anchovies, we were told after ordering that "anchovies were $3 extra"; we complained about a surcharge for something clearly listed as part of the dish as well as how the dressing had too much vinegar, making it inedible, but only received a $2 discount on our bill. The only saving grace for our evening was our server, who was extremely professional and super personable.
