Cute little wine bar behind an unassuming wine shop. The wine bar is a pretty big venue with live music on certain nights. The small plates are perfect little morsels to have with your wine or beer tasting. 1/2 price tasting during happy hour as...More

Decent wines, interesting beers, and great flight/tasting options. Contrary to another reviewer, we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, given there is no kitchen. Great charcuterie plate (spring for the extra truffle honey--it was lovely), and the fungi and the pear/Gorgonzola pizzas...More

I ran in here because it was next door to our hotel. I grabbed a 4 pack of beer and left so I didn't experience a whole lot. The place is packed with wine tho! The employee that helped me was friendly.

so I'm not sure if the service was odd because of that, or what...but it was hard to get served. Once we did, the wine was great, the prices fair. The cheese plate was small for the price.

The wine was good. The happy hour prices are great. The food is not so great, tastes like frozen pizza because that is exactly what it was. The room is in back of the wine shop, a little creepy but they did a good job...More

I had to meet with a client, and I was in the Santa Monica area. The client liked wine also, so we decided to try this place... We were not disappointed! Monday & Thursday nights they have the "20 for 20" - you can try...More

The service is abysmal. We made advance reservations for 10 women for a girls wine group. The first 3 to arrive had to wait for 45 minutes for the waiter to even come to our table. I finally walked up to him at the bar...More

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
