We tasted three wines including a $16 glass of zinfandel that was recommended as being the best....NOT!! We can get a better bottle for $4 of Trader Joe Zin. So please...don't serve average quality wines to tourists. I don't know how they stay in business...More

We took advantage of a free bottle of wine and a free appetiser on Valentines Day and had a great evening. We also ordered some other dishes which were tasty. Our server was very efficient but the guy in charge seemed a little disorganised. I...More

Stopped here for some wine and appetizers. Crostinis and meat tray were fine. They were busy and service was quite little slow. Friendly, but slow, especially to be at the bar and hard to get acknowledged.

Enjoyed a couple hours sipping wine and having a shrimp cocktail and panini. It was nice, low key staff, didn't feel rushed. The only thing that would make it better would be a view of the bay.

Underwhelming experience to be sure. Took at least 30 minutes to get waited on. Several folk who came in long after me served first. Granted they were super busy, but hey you're in the biz - that's what you want? Ordered a glass of wine...More

We chose for the wine tasting, to get an idea of the local wines, and combined it with a meat- and cheese platter. It was simply delicious. The live music provided the finishing touch.

You can't beat these local Oysters, and for a buck you'll eat your fill. The ultimate crostini with truffle sautéed filet mignon, Portobello, olive tapenade and pesto is a must have as well. They have a real fine Merlot, the cheapest is the best! Fine...More
