So glad I found this place! Myself and two friends stumbled upon the Wine Room through google and decided to check it out now knowing what to expect. We made a blind reservation and my only dissapointment was not booking one of the dining experiences that they offer. The sommelier/owner is so knowledgable and friendly and loved chatting with him about wine and life! Great wine selection and something for everyone's taste and pocketbook. We were also offered a Tapas menu and the pesto dip was abolsutely delishes! Might be the best I've ever had! I didn't have any other items but my firends only had good things to say about what they ordered. Based on the quality of the Tapas, I can only imagine that the dinner experiences offered would be phenomenal.

We really enjoyed this evening, exploring new wines. Monrick is a great host making sure you are getting the information and proper guidance to explore your pallet. The tapas were amazing, if you are looking for a place to really enjoy your time with great company and great food you have to visit this place. We will visit more frequently for sure.

We had a fantastic time at The Wine Room in downtown Aruba. Monrick loves what he does and it is very evident in his hospitality and service. My husband and I had a date night planned, and Monrick allowed us to customize our menu while we let him decide which wines to pair. Everything was delicious, made to order by Monrick himself. The coffee rubbed ribeye and Malbec was such a treat. We shared stories, laughs, lot of great food and wine, and we have certainly found a new friend in Monrick, and we plan to visit The Wine Room every year now during our Aruba vacation. Thank you!

My place to escape the crowd and indulge in amazing wines, great company and service! Monrick the owner is by far the best wine connoisseur I have met in my life he is so passionate about his product. When you are in Aruba make sure you make an appointment and visit this place you will not regret this I PROMISE!
Try his mouth watering coffee rubbed steak, stuffed mushroom, dates and cheeses and let Monrick choose the best wine to pair these with... Monrick thank you for your hospitality and make couples feel like royalty at your place... The best in town!!

Web sight recommends wine pairings with food. Don't do it. I paid US $175. for steak with wine pairings, Not one of our wines was listed for more than $15 on Vivino. And taste of wine "fair at best". Food was good, but not great. For what my wife and I paid $323 "Total rip off". Many other GREAT restaurants on Aruba.

We are very sorry to hear about your experiences.

We are sad to hear it was not to your satisfaction

Its good to mention that we pride ourselves on offering the highest standards of hospitality and professionalism in regards to our wine service delivery.

In order to respond correctly to your review we would like to explain ourselves again! Aruba has one of the highest taxes in the world, and it's impossible to compete against American or Vivino prices, since we have to pay, inland shipping, overseas shipping, wine taxes and all other expenses that pertains to the wine import process, as we have explained this to you that night.

Also, we have giving you a choice to buy a bottle of Brunello di Montalcino and you kindly rejected it.

In our eyes, 1 star, terrible service is when the restaurant did not do anything within their establishment to accommodate you and to reach a positive resolution.

We were on top of our service and asked with frequency if everything is to desire, and often you answered yes. These would have been perfect moments for you to voice/share your discontent. We also find it interesting that despite your dissatisfaction you did consume all our dishes completely

As a final note we would like to take this opportunity to set the record straight.

We thank you for visiting, we really did everything we can to help you feel at home, but we would like to advice you not to write bad reviews like this in restaurant throughout Aruba, because these are devastating times and it's against Tripadvisor guidelines to tell inaccurate reviews.

Wine regards,

The Wine Room
