My friends and I popped into this place for a quick drink. The owner was very friendly, advised us of some local wines to try. We were able to try before buying a bottle. On hearing we were from Australia she provided us with tourist info and wineries to visit. We had some of her flatbread pizzas which were lovely.... More

My husband & I spent a lovely, romantic evening here on Friday night, enjoying a great selection of niche wines and great service in an elegant, sophisticated setting. We've been coming to the Russian River for years and it's wonderful to see the addition of such an upscale establishment to downtown Guerneville. The atmosphere is relaxed and cozy, and Leslie...

A comfortable atmosphere and friendly staff make for a nice, upscale date spot. The menu is short and well crafted, nothing like what the rest of Guerneville has to offer. Super thin pizzas, almost lavash, and home made ice cream. This week they have two types, roasted tomato and basil. Lots of local wine too, they specialize in Sonoma County... More

I spent a most enjoyable evening at Whitetail on Thursday with three friends who had never been there before. We thought we’d sample the wine, have an appetizer and then head out to eat at one of the local restaurants. Instead we felt so snug and comfy, and the wine was so delicious (plus there was some kind of special... More

I came to this establishment for a meeting with other local moms and we all were treated horribly by the owner. We ordered drinks but when we didn't order food the owner rolled her eyes at us and stormed away. For the rest of the time we were there no one asked if we needed anything. After three of us...

Our local parent group went to Whitetail tonight to have our monthly meeting and support a local business. Instead of good wine and food we were served a platter of harsh and unbelievable rude insults from the owner! She was harassing us about not ordering food, white we attempted to enjoy our beverages. And accused us of under tipping her... More

What a weird place. I wondered when we walked by why no one was in such a cool-looking wine bar. Well, it's because the atmosphere is awful. The girl behind the bar was not friendly and talked on her phone instead of paying attention to her only customers. There were flies everywhere. Never going back.
