Carpe Vino is a favorite of mine. Excellent service, great food and wine and a great atmosphere for couples dining or for small groups! Never have had a bad experience at Carpe Vino!

Same great waiter as last time--same poor facility (uncomfortable seating- loud area with co-diners. BUT- the FOOD was worth all the discomfort! The entire experience, together with slightly painful prices , was totally worth it. We will return for any 'special" occasion.

This is an excellent restaurant with a bar that specializes in wines. Although I would not recommend this restaurant for 12 year old and under, teens might have the pallet for the level of the foods offered here.
