Nice bartenders, good wine and enjoyable music. Unfortunately their computer system and music system seem like they’re all from the mid 90’s so there were more than a few technical glitches affecting the music and payment options. Even so, I’d definitely go back.

We spent a memorable few hours here enjoying fabulous wines. The staff were fantastic. Their knowledge of the wines on the menu was admirable as the menu is long... Ambiance fit perfectly too.

Very nice wines, good location and good ambiance. A must go when you're in San Francisco! Not to pricy also!

This place has a fine selection of wines, both red and white. The emphasis on wine produced in California is excellent. The vibe is invigorating, though it is a small place. The decor is simple but appealing. The service quick and efficient.

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
