Small restaurant, with excellent wine offering, fair pricing and okay service. Try the Bar Menu, but get there early as seating is limited and parking can be difficult to find.

This is a wine shop turned into a restaurant with recommended wine pairings. The wines are rather overpriced ranging from $30 to $225 per bottle. The $30 bottle was a substitute since they were out of many others and pretty low end. You can get the same ones for a fraction elsewhere. The food is off of a menu and... More

This restaurant is a 10. The service, food, wine, beer and atmosphere are impeccable. They keep it simple but ever changing. A real treat. And, its fun to walk around old town Auburn.

The three of us cornered the bar and enjoyed a bottle of sparkling rose. They have snacks and later they have a full dinner menu. They have a variety of seating choices. You can also buy wine to go. We had a great time and the bartender was very attentive. Most glasses of wine are $10 a glass, our bottle... More

We started visiting here about a year after the establishment opened; strictly a wine bar then. The restaurant opened a few years later. It is a friendly "local" place, but everybody that walks in is treated like a local in the bar area. The restaurant space is small and divided into two long, narrow rooms; hard walls and noisy. We...

Britany was our server. The calms, Caesar salad and Wygu beef were all excellent, not to mention the apricot profiteroles! They even had our wine club order ready for pickup!

Well. nothing but pleasant surprises! At first, the only reservation was 8 PM. We wanted something earlier, so I... More
