Don't pay any mind to a negative review of this place. The food pairs well with the wine; be prepared for Chorizo. The Empanadas are the highlight of a very good menu. The French Toast dessert Empanadas are different and very tasty.

I have visited this place several times and have always had a pleasant experience. Tonight was a different story. The service was horrible and the recommendations were worse. The waitress with the short hair hates her job and knows nothing about wine. Stay away from this place if you're looking for great service!

This is a great place to get together with friends, meet for a first date or just to get a good glass or wine or beer. Beautiful classy decor, friendly staff and alcohol. What more can a person need.

The Brie Bowl is to die for! When paired with their wine sampler and the meat & cheese plate it was like heaven. We sat outside under the lights and outdoor heaters which made the ambiance even more relaxing. I would definitely come here again!

I'm hooked on this place! The wine and food are fabulous! My friend and I love meeting here for "girls night" or just to relax and have a great glass of wine on the weekend. The staff is wonderful and very helpful when choosing wine. I was very impressed they let me taste a couple of wines before I chose... More

It is very classy and has a great atmosphere. The service is perfect. We shared a bottle of wine and several appetizers---all delicious! It is a little bit expensive but worth it for an occasional treat.

Great beer and wine selection and fun atmosphere. I went with my husband and son and we had a great time... Excellent food and the service is awesome. The owner and the people that work there are very friendly and knowledgeable about what they serve. The artichoke flatbread is outstanding. Definitely one of my favorite places in Fullerton.

Heard about it for a long time and finally visited a few times. I enjoy it for adults, some girls time, or just my hubby and me on a quick date. They are helpful with selecting wine and had great service and some really good menu items. Highly recommend the brie bowl, the chipotle pasta. They were friendly and that... More

But inside has a trashy sports bar feeling. Or maybe just a hard bartender...and everybody is drunk by 10pm. The food is the best part. Try the portobello mushrooms!. I don't recommend the beer nor the wine.

Stopped by with a work collogue. Sadly we found The Twisted Vine on the last night of our trip. The people working there are great. Friendly. Knowledgable. Helpful. They have a great selection of wine and do have bottles you can take with you. The food looked great. We did not try as we had dinner prior. I would go... More
