We didn't eat here, decided to stop to pick up some wine for our house. I think we might have been invisible. Took forever for someone to finally come to the cash register. Wine was over priced, better selection and better prices at Lazy Acres...More

When my husband and I were visiting friends in the area, we dined here one evening in February. We had a nice, cozy corner on the heated porch. Wines included glasses of cabernet, zinfandel, and Sancerre. Entrees were Mushroom Pasta, Mushroom Risotto, fish tacos, and...More

While visiting Encinitas, I ordered the short ribs per the recommendation of a regular patron of this restaurant. They were fantastic! The dessert was also impressively delicious!

The wines were reasonably priced and great selection, However, there's a TV above the wine bar. NO, NO, NO....you don't do that. We left shortly after getting there.

Went in for dinner but found ourselves still in Happy Hour time. I had a seafood risotto that was fabulous and my husband had scallops with fresh seasonal vegetables. The service was very attentive. It got very busy by the time we left (and noisy).
