    While the atmosphere needs a bit of work, the cheese and wine were excellent. Just don't expect to satisfy your hunger here. Head down the road to Tacofino (Taco bar) afterwards for fantastic tacos.

    If you can get past the sketchy alley location, this place is amazing! Great wines, meats, cheeses and condiments. Be sure to ask a lot of questions; the servers are wry knowledgeable.

    As an introduction to West Coast flavours this can't be beaten. Mix and match the B.C. platter; cheese, charcuterie and wine paired with house-made or locally-supplied condiments. [Eater 38 Member]

    Amazing selection of wine... great place for socializing or for a casual business meeting - wine meeting in place of the usual coffee meeting. You'll have fun.

    Same owners as Irish Heather, but in the heart of Blood Alley - pray tell - what kind of alley has a name like that? Salt boasts some delectable wines & tasting plates! Read more

    Order the platter of the day - they will create a meat, bread and cheese platter for you. And then order a bottle of wine to start off your evening.

    Let Jillian order for you, ask for the best glass of wine she has. It's a secret. Meet a new friend. Go downstairs to the cellar! and Find the Louis Vuitton trash can in blood alley! Read more

    If you choose you meats/cheeses/spreads they will select appropriate wines for you and vice versa. Great date spot and fun experience.

    Great variety in wine+meat selection. Remember it's a tasting room- don't expect a full meal here unless you have a really tiny stomach.
