    The recent menu revamp at this winecentric stalwart is full of trends. Thankfully, no dish here is getting by merely on street cred. Read more

    Very eclectic place. A little on the expensive side, but the ambiance and nature of this restaurant is worth every penny. Wine pairings are spot on, so don't go flying solo.

    Our choice for best wine class, evening seminars strike a comfortable balance between quaffing and chatting and serious grape talk.

    A new menu encourages sharing. But you can have your own glass (or three) of wine.

    With so many wine and cheese choices, dinner seems expendable at this vinocentric draw. Read more

    Obviously wine is what they do here, but they have a great port and sherry collection. Ask your server if you aren't sure what to get.

    The cheese flights & fondue are excellent (and the $10 price for checking in is a nice bonus). Our service was attentive but not overbearing. Great for people looking to sample different selections
