DW and I, seniors, arrived for dinner around 6 PM on a Thursday night. This upstairs venue has a warm cozy feel with a fireplace in the dining area and low-level lighting. Rather than starting in the bar area we went directly to our table....More

We have dined at the Wine Bar numerous times and I must say that we enjoy stopping by for cocktails and appetizers. The bartenders make some pretty tasty concoctions and it is a treat when they have live music. Our last visit was on a...More

Went to Atlantic Highlands looking for a place to have a couple cocktails, opting for The Wine Bar as a new place to try. Very relaxed. Kelly and Katie were attentive without being overbearing. Kelly did try to help with selections when my wife's chosen...More
