Very nice place right on the Embarcadero. Had a lovely glasses of California wines and a cheese plate. Owner was very attentive and informative. Excellent service. I felt the food was a bit overpriced. Wines by the glass very reasonable. Friendly clientele as well.

We stopped in for a glass of wine and ended up with a bottle. As proper skeptics, we started with the wine tasting menu to "check it out". The manager served us a cab sav from Johansing Vineyard, amongst others, and we were sold. Along with the bottle, we had pesto prawns and a cheese platter. Delicious fare, nice atmosphere...life...

We stopped in Morro Bay before heading into the Big Sur and went to Stax as it was in my guide book. We were not disappointed, the small plates we had were delicious; the wine was exceptional. We had the wine flight and the waiter expertly talked us through each wine, showing in-depth knowledge, to compliment the fantastic wine.

We ended up there by accident;strolling along and went in! Excellent service; wine extremely good. It was our very first experience wine tasting and our server was very gracious and informative in explaining different wines and how pairing them with food! Now we love wine tasting. We currently just moved to Morro Bay two weeks ago. And of course, Stan... More

We arrived in this place by chance, in a rainy day, and discovered this charming bistro. We ordered salads and sandwiches which were presented in a very original way, with fresh ingredients of good quality. There was obviously a special care and research in their cuisine. The deco was nice but the lights were quite cold and insufficient. Also the... More
