OMG! I went there, twice, when they
first opened HOPING it would be good because I'm really into wine. The food was just OK but the service was HORRENDOUS. So I gave it a few years and tonight a family member wanted their birthday there so we tried it again. BIG MISTAKE, not only was the service yet again monumentally bad, but the food? Wow. I had a 'special' gnocchi with seafood. WITH A CHEESE sauce???????? Disgusting. My sister-in-law had the legendarily bad lobster mac-cheese DOUSED in an overwhelming truffle oil, like someone watched too much Top Chef and decided that it was OK to overwhelm the delicate flavors of lobster with a pungent truffle oil.
Hmmmm...what else, I had a martini for $10, and the "smoked-beet" salad with goat cheese. Which was a bowl full of canned pickled beets cut into squares with about two small pieces of goat cheese.
My brother-in-law had the NY strip which was basically and impressive looking strip of pure fat and grisel. Even my nephew's hamburger wasn't good. A hamburger, really? Even McDonalds can make a good hamburger.
The Caesar salad was so pedestrian that it should have been stamped General Mills.
A $15 corkage fee to open a bottle of red wine and pour it into white wine glasses? $15 for what???? To pull the cork?
Buy some red wine glasses people! You do call yourself "Wild Vines" and 'pride' yourselves on your wine list. Quite the impressive wine service! I'm surprised the waitress didn't fill two glasses full and wonder what to do with the rest of the (white) wine glasses.
$138 for dinner for my wife and I and two "corkage" fees. BUYER BEWARE!
Amazing Find - unlikely spot.
Went with a friend/co-worker here for a project from out of town. Saw this listed in the area and decided to give it a try. We had a great meal. She had carrot soup, roasted chicken over cauliflower puree. I tasted the cauliflower and it was delicious. I had roasted beets with goat cheese - yum! and rack of lamb over spinach polenta. Polenta needed a dash of salt, but lamb was excellent. We were given good wine suggestions with our dishes.
The decor was warm and cozy. We were there too early for the music, but I will definitely come back to check that out another time, as well as the deserts!
