The casual but quiet atmosphere combined with some innovative small plates make this wine bar accessible to the casual drinker. The wine selection is fun to peruse and the staff are cool with that. Kind of fun. Probably great for a date night.

We booked in advance the first time, and got there at opening time the second trip. The second time, the place was booked solid (weekend, early May), but the seats at the bar are first-come-first-served.
