This place is a gem! It reminds me of New Orleans....not in the food but the friendly atmosphere. The food however is top quality all around! We were a little hesitant to eat here for dinner, but wow we were so happy we did! On top of the great food we were able to buy high quality wine at store... More

We were really pleased with the wine here. We ordered a wine flight and a few glasses of wine -- all were excellent. The bartender also made good recommendations based on our likes and dislikes. We also got the cheese and charcuterie appetizer and were pleased with the selections. I would highly recommend trying this place out -- yes, it's... More

We had a wonderful dinner excellent cobia and seared tuna! Good wine and beer specials and we were treated to the dark chocolate covered bacon dessert. It was to die for! The chef, Alexandria Caesar created tasty dishes and personally visited our table. Kudos to her and her delightful staff.

It really doesn't get much worse than this. We went for lunch and waited 27 minutes for our food, even though there were only two other parties in the restaurant. We ordered our soft drinks and when they were brought to us the waiter said "Oh, we're out of ice." Hmmmm... It might have been nice to know that ahead... More

We enjoyed our lunch, first visit to this restaurant. The food was quite good. The garlic shrimp is very close to the Pil Pil that we love in southern Spain. Arugula, pear, blue cheese salad was excellent. None of the wines on the list were familiar to us, but the chardonnay we selected was very nice. We did have problems... More

Attended a private event (Lobster Dinner) at this restaurant as a first-time guest and will definitely be planning a return visit. The food was delicious (very unique presentation of lobster - chef's goal was to make us "rethink" traditional lobster dishes and she accomplished that without question), service was exceptional, atmosphere was great and the price was right for this...

We love Vin205! The menu changes frequently and the wine and beer selection is terrific. They have a dozen or so wines on tap and have both 6oz and 10oz pours. I love a big glass of wine! The menu varies from tappas & salads to steaks, so there's something for everyone. Much of the food is locally grown so... More

I treated my husband and daughter for Father's Day to this restaurant. We hadn't been there in a while and were looking forward to a pleasant time. They weren't open in the evening as it was Sunday so we opted for an afternoon meal. We were very pleased to see that they had sliders and tapas. Everything prepared was delicious.... More

Went here with my fiancé last night. It was just ok, which was disappointing. There are no other tapas places this close to my house. Nothing was bad, honestly. I just feel like the flavor combinations are odd. I wanted to like it, I really did. The service was phenomenal though. Our server was very friendly and extremely helpful. I... More
