Reviewed 8 October 2017

This place is out of the way and you will have to find it but it is more than well worth the effort. Exceptional and striking modern decor, well dressed and attentive waitress, fine wines, outstanding food, all right off the side and connected to a dance studio. The well dressed and attractive dancers and instructors can be seen out on the dance floor from anywhere in the restaurant and frequently come into the bar area too. The Spanish style tapas are all excellent and a fine change from the usual area seafood regime. I number this as one of the best eating establishments in my five decades of enjoying food around the world. Every single dish was world class. Do yourself the favor of the experience!

We had a great dinner at the Wine Knot with friends. Chef was great and the food was excellent. You have to try the Lebenese dessert - just great!

There were so many good reviews that I though for sure this was a no brainer, but that wasn't the case. I struggle between giving 2 or 3 stars; 2 because of experience or 3 because I could see potential. So, our first visit was for their Red, White and Brew tasting. They sat us all at a long family table..15+ spots, which was fine, but in the middle of their very small dining room to do a wine tasting seemed odd. The gentlemen conducting the tasting chatted with us in small groups instead of speaking loud enough for everyone to hear. And sometimes he just poured without explanation. The wine was delicious, but the evening was short and chaotic. Brief verbal descriptions of the wine, type of grapes how much it cost.... No printout, no seeing the bottle, nothing. He skipped glasses...just disorganized. All the while you had a beer tasting option, which one of our party chose and no beer ever appeared. The cheese sampling, divine! The tapas we ordered were tasty but dry. The ONE waitress said they were in between chefs. Hmmm....the wine tasting has potential if it were set up differently. Would I go again? Maybe.

We have had dinner twice at Wine Knot. We ordered from the tapas menu on both occasions, and on the second visit added a meat and cheese plate and a dessert. Every bite was the perfect balance of flavors. On our second visit we lucked into 1/2 price wine by the glass, which turned out to be well-paired with the tapas. Watching the dance lessons provided a little free entertainment - my compliments to the dancers being willing to have an audience.

You can't go wrong with any of the tapas, in fact, we order one of each. If you are only ordering a few, the crab cakes are especially fresh and light.

The atmosphere and hostess/waitress very good and nice...the food took very long wait to arrive and for $19 dinner you do NOT get anything like bread or salad first...nothing but a piece of fish with a half a cup of vegetables.....tasty but they need to give more food like bread and salad especially when your waiting for your meal...guess we should have ordered appetizers or the tapas...just be ready for very small tasty portions.
