I have been to this location a number of times and always enjoyed the small bites and wine selection. This time I came with 2 other couples for a party of 6. Each couple ordered the large plate to share. I have a dairy allergy and requested a large plate without dairy, and the chef was very accommodating. However; when... More

My husband and I dropped in for a quick drink. Didn't know what to expect, but the inside had a cool ambience. The bartender was a lovely with a different type of accent. She made a really good Moscow mule! The best I've had in awhile! She provided great conversation and made our time waiting go by faster!

While in Charlotte for an overnight stay, we came upon The Wooden Vine Wine Bar and Bistro. We come to Charlotte fairly often, and we were looking for something a little different. The Wooden Vine fit the bill. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, and our server Dimitri couldn't have been more attentive. In fact, everyone working there was extremely... More

We visited the downtown Charlotte area last week and had a wonderful, relaxing evening at The Wooden Vine Wine Bar and Bistro. The atmosphere was very relaxing and welcoming while the wine and food was spectacular. The service was wonderful as well. I highly recommend trying the nightly "mystery pour."

I was really looking forward to going to this wine bar for a glass of wine. When we got there it was 6 minutes before opening and the doors were unlocked and two bartenders were behind the bar. Right as the door shut behind us they told us they were closed and turned us away...for being 6 minutes early! Really!?... More

We guessed the mystery pour and got a free glass of wine! A fantastically smooth red! Paired it with the hummus appetizer which was amazing! I make my own hummus, quite good if I say so myself, and this topped it!

We were desperately searching for a place to eat after the Billy Joel Concert and we are from out of town. After trying several places with no luck, we happened onto to this GEM! The people are lovely, helpful and friendly. Food and Wine were Fantastic even though it was the end of the evening. Top Notch!

Being an Executive Chef and Sommelier, the only reason we go out is to meet people and socialize. As soon as I walked in the door at Wooden Vine, I felt like I was a regular. Brad, the GM, and I had a lively conversation about wines. The small plates were good, the "mystery " pours won't disappoint, but the... More
