My girlfriend and I had a fun night in, and after some wine and conversation we decided we definitely needed some late night dinner before bed. We walked to The Magnolia and it was such a quaint and calm palace, and the staff was genuinely happy to have us. The bartender/manager, Brandon, was dressed in a nice vest and bow... More

The bartender/server was really nice and helpful. The soup was amazing and we both enjoyed our sandwiches. The dessert was delicious. We will be back.

Let me begin by saying that we like the food here and the drinks are fine. However, I have never been to a place where I had the highest tab in the bar, we were absolutely just hanging out and not causing trouble whatsoever, and we were asked to leave because we weren't "hipster" enough and were killing the vibe....

Hi Justin, thanks for sharing your opinion. I'm guessing this was the NFL draft group with the laptops a couple months ago? I had to say something after 3 hours had passed and had watched 2 hungry groups walk in and leave for lack of seats. As a very small place we have to work hard to consolidate and accommodate...

Stopped in on a weekday with my old Scottish mum a few months ago. Wine bar, but i had a beer and the food and experience was great. I recently enjoyed quick turn around catering for a lunch event thanks to Kiley and Bill! The Turkey Avocado & Chicken Salad did not disappoint - and great price and friendly drop... More

Though my wife and I wrote a heartfelt review some time ago, I am happy to write that the Magnolia on Cervantes remains an outstanding bar and grill. The food and special events are not to be missed. The "Great Good Places" are hard to find with the invasion of national chains. Magnolia is neighborhood. Beers cold, wines eclectic, dining... More

Try the 5 cheese board. It is superior to others in town and reasonably priced. The owner is present and involved. His descriptions of the two Spanish wines were detailed enough so that the one we chose was exactly as he said and the price was also very reasonable. My wife and I also sampled the soup of the day... More

Awesome little restaurant and bar. The wife and I met some friends for dinner and drinks. They have a small menu of small plates and sandwiches, everyone loved what they ordered. Drinks are limited to beer and wine but they have a good selection. This is a quaint little place with a feel good vibe. Good food and drinks.
