Had dinner at The Annata Wine Bar last night. It was the second visit to this fantastic Hammonton Hideaway. Service great, food, great, prices reasonable, great bar, and beautiful ambiance. A sophisticated and delightful restaurant in a place you might not expect to find such a jewel. Don't hesitate to try it, you won't be disappointed and last night (Friday) they offered a great band and dancing to boot. The crowd is a range of all ages so Annata's is the place for both young and old alike. 5 Stars!

On a dreary Sunday afternoon in March, we decided to try some place different and drove to Hammonton and Annata Wine Bar for an early dinner. We did not have reservations. The restaurant definitely began to fill our during our dinner.

We chose a table by the front window so that there would be more light. Particularly that day, the inside was dark. We had nice cushiony seats at our table. We ordered a nice bottle of Washington State chardonnay that was fairly priced for a restaurant situation. (It was a little less than three times its retail price at Total Wine Super Store.) There were also some nice looking cocktails being served to other diners.

The hot bread with the seasoned dipping sauce was definitely worth the carbs and the calories. Our server did a good job of explaining portion sizes, and we ordered accordingly, going with the large for the fish dishes and small for the lollipop lamb chops. She gave us ounce sizes for the fish dishes.

We shared all our dishes. We started with the ahi tuna salad, and that was our favorite dish overall. The warm arugala salad under the tuna was absolutely delicious, as was the tuna itself. The portion size for the large was generous.The lollipop lamb chops were nice, although they could have been a bit less done to be medium as ordered. Mashed potatoes were ok. The sea bass came in a delicious red sauce. We thought the sea bass itself was a bit tough and would not order it again..

Overall, we had a nice dining experience. Service was fine. Our meal was a little bit pricey, but fine for a splurge night. There are other items in the menu we want to try, and of course we want to get the tuna again, so we will be back.

Great location, friendly staff, good food. Although it says tapas, the portions are generous.Good location if going to the Eagle Theater. It is a charming place, great wine list, very good food. Seating is comfortable, but chairs are low - ask for a cushion, if you need to, or sit in the booths. Will definately go back!

My daughter (who is a food lover) for my Birthday took me to Annata Wine Bar for lunch. Oh my goodness when I walked in the place it was totally amazing. The tables were perfect , the seats were perfect and the server was just amazing. I was totally taken back how nice this place presented itself. The hot bread with dipping oil , to the meal.
We had a sandwich that the meat complimented the bread, the fries complimented the sandwich . I am not going to tell you what sandwich we both enjoyed because I would suggest you read the menu. Because what we had I have not a doubt they all taste that great. I usually do not give an excellent on first bite , but they earned it . Please go and try and let you taste buds tell you how good the food is !!! Nice job

Just once in a while, you get to dress up and take in a fine dinner and a show Right? But Hammonton New Jersey?

When I was growing up in South Jersey, Hammonton was the Italian Capital of the area. Known for their rich history, parades and of course Blueberries. In the last few years, downtown Hammonton has been going through a Renaissance of sorts. Once destined to deteriorate away, now is a hub of fabulous eateries and shops and local theater.

The stand out is the Annata Wine Bar. Annata, which translates from Italian to English to mean 'Vintage Year' Nestled in an old store front, Annata Wine Bar offers a comfortable atmosphere where guests are welcome to enjoy one of the extensive wines offered by the glass, bottle paired perfectly with a selection from their Italian-inspired tapas menu.

We were greeted at the hostess stand by a beautiful and pleasant woman who was the co-owner with her brother the head chief. (Oh did I say reservation are recommended.) We were taken to our table with comfy “lounge-style seating” conducive to a relaxed wine-soaked conversation. Being our first time there, were given the “rundown” on the how the evening would progress.

Our server Dawn explained the process to us and the night began. I immediately noticed that the dining room began to fill up and that is because one can come here to this intimate, upscale enoteca where “knowledgeable” servers pour a vast selection of local, Californian and Oregonian bottles that can be paired with wonderfully sophisticated snacks.

If you are not of the wine crowd, they also offer signature martinis, artisan scotches and imported beer selections. I of course choose a Bombay Sapphire Gin Martini a little dirty with two blue cheese stuffed olives.

We began our dinner with a cheese platter that consisted of strawberry cheddar and anther cheese paired with delectable dried meats. That coupled with the fresh roasted peppers and green olives, which should have been our meal. The menu offers an array of delectable dishes. They offer the smaller portions or the full size, we choose the latter so we could sample three dishes.

We selected the Chilean sea bass basilica filets in a white wine, tomato and basil broth. $12, a duo of house made potato gnocchi in a sage brown butter sauce with house made spinach and ricotta gnocchi in a creamy tomato basil sauce $10 and one special which was veal scaloppini with a rich wine sauce. These coupled with an Oregonian pinot noir were a perfect match.

At no time were we rushed or bothered by Dawn our server who was just perfect for the atmosphere. We just relaxed and enjoyed the night.

What can one say about a wonderful dining experience except that if you are in the area, this Wine Bar is a must and will be the destination where we will bring a special guest.
