Vintner's is a regular stop for our weekly "Wine Wednesdays". Norm's customer service is amazing and he always has great wine recommendations. Happy hour is a great deal and they even offer vegan options. Vegan cheesecake is amazing!

This restaurant is slighty off the beaten path, but very worth finding. They make their own wine (lots of varietals), and prepare tasty innovative food. Prices are reasonable. If your a wine snob, the wine won't blow you a way, but it's all decent. I'd...More

All the previous reviewers of Vintner's Cellar gave it an "excellent" rating. Sounds fishy to me. OK, the service was friendly and the wine was good. But, the food was far great and even with the happy hour menu we easily spent over $60 for...More

A favorite neighborhood spot, Vintner's Cellar of Oregon is the best wine bar and small winemaker in Portland. Stop by for a small plate, a pizza, and, of course, some wine! Open for lunch and dinner daily, our menu ranges from fresh salads to sandwiches and our popular bagel crust pizzas. All of our food is made from scratch and we make it a point to support local growers and producers. Our menu features monthly and seasonal specials so ask what's new when you stop by! We offer happy hour Monday through Sunday from 3-6:30pm featuring red, white, and rose by the glass at a steep discount as well as plates from $3-$5. Gluten free or vegan? We have special items for you too! Our friendly service is here to recommend great wines. We offer sample sizes so that you can discover new tastes or fall back to old classics. An urban winery, we offer winemaking sessions where you can create your own blend and customize a label. Ask us for more details when you're here! We look forward to welcoming you!
