    An excellent place to brunch en masse and drink bottomless mimosas. If weather permits, don’t forget about the back "plaza" featuring an old-world fountain'd, brick-enclosed bocce court. Read more

    Bitches Who Brunch recommend Vinoteca for an inexpensive, gourmet brunch - but only if you don't mind the crowd noise. Try the bottomless mimosas. Read more

    The pros at Vinoteca skip the champagne flutes and serve the bubbly in big ol’ wine glasses. We like.

    the pancakes with ginger butter is a great dessert item to share

    There's a terrific happy hour every day from 5 to 7 PM, including Saturdays. $5 for a glass of wine, with a great selection.

    Kristy is awesome. Definitely sit at the bar for some TLC. Great selection - I always try to get something different and I'm never dissapointed

    Another popular dish seems to be the sliders. Take your pick of beef, bison, or lamb. You MUST, MUST, MUST try the Bukettraube Cederberg (South African White Wine).

    Great bottomless brunch, but be careful - they try to flip your table after about 1.5 hours.

    Brunch is amazing. the staff is friendly and very knowledgeable about the wine selection to recommend the perfect glass based on your tastes and what you're in the mood for.

  • Eboni

    Two slices of bacon is all you will need. The bloody mary's aren't as flavorful or spicy as I like them but the Mimosas a free flowing!

    Eboni · April 2, 2012

    Wine flights like "Bubble Bath" and "Cab Ride" make this a can't miss for wine lovers. Skip the restaurant if you're a foodie though. Read more · January 3, 2011

    Sit at the bar for better service. It's busy so they won't come after you, but as wine virgins we were easily able to get their attention for hand-holding help.

  • Brittani H.

    Tables outside on the patio are best for overall brunch experiences (less noise than inside). Brunch bottomless mimosas end at 3pm so try to arrive by noon or 1pm.

  • JP P.

    Don't hog the table. Other people also have reservations and want to enjoy brunch.

    The Mimosas and baninis are the best! Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 3pm!

    Great bar tenders. Horus, the bar manager, is one of the best!

    No table service on a Friday night- kind of a turnoff. Oh, and watch out for random terrible music.

    Managment has no idea what they are doing. Treats the staff like slaves.
